I know we don’t need to remove lashes very often, but, we absolutely must have the right products to remove lashes when necessary. It would be awful if a client called you with an allergic reaction and you did not have the right removers on your trolley.
Lashes need removing properly and not left to the client to pick them off. You should book your client in for the removal at her application appointment, and organize your pricing structure so that the removal is included in the price. More often than not, if clients have to pay for removal, they will probably not come.
Often clients forget how their natural lashes were and they get very used to having thick, luscious lashes. When you remove them, she may say that the lash extensions have ruined her own lashes. That is simply not true, you can reassure her that nothing has happened to their lashes whilst they were wearing eyelash extensions, they just got used to more length and thickness!!!
The removal procedure should not involve you tugging away at the lashes trying to get them off. You should soak the lashes with the gel remover and then remove them with the liquid remover.
If you follow this procedure, you’ll remove lashes efficiently without your client huffing and puffing on your couch wondering if you are ever going to finish. Don’t forget she is busy!
- Apply gel pads under the eyes so that the skin is protected. The remover should not touch the skin.
- Apply gel remover and make sure the lashes are well coated. You can be generous as the gel will not run. Massage the gel into the lashes with your microfiber brush.
- Leave for 5 minutes so it starts to break down the glue.
- Continue removal with liquid by dipping the microfibre brushes into the liquid remover, blotting on tissue to make absolutely sure there are no drips and remove as normal.
You must always blot the remover, if any drips go into your clients eyes, it will really sting.
I am honestly not just trying to sell you both the gel and liquid remover, I have experimented extensively with removal, and this is by far the most efficient procedure.
