Created by removing a couple of extensions from the lash strip, the lash artist using their own technique will fan the lashes, dip them into a bonding substance and then proceed to secure them on the client’s natural lash. One major advantage to creating your own handmade eyelash fans is that it allows the artist the ability to customize and control the lashing process which enhances the quality of the service provided. Handmade fan lash extensions make customization easy. Some common techniques that are put to use by lash artists when creating their own handmade fans lashes are mentioned below to give artists maximum options in order to refine their skills:

Off tape technique

For anyone starting off on their lash making journeys, learning this technique is a good place to begin as it allows the artist to perform the relatively easy task of moving individual lashes on the same or different tape. This step starts by pulling off the lashes from the sticky strip where the number of lashes can be more or less depending on the client’s demand - whether they want to have a dense or natural look. The key skill to pick up here is to be able to separate a volume lash from the rest that are on the tape and then fan out the lashes. Then all that is left to do is to hold the lash in the mid-section and pull upwards towards yourself to lift the lash.

Lean and pick technique

In order to open up the handmade fan lash extensions evenly, this technique comes in handy when trying to easily handle each individual lash. What you mainly do here is pick the fan near the base while ensuring it doesn’t cross over. Then you place the fan onto the strip, lean it over and pick the lashes open. By doing this technique often, you can learn the ropes of creating your very own perfect little handmade eyelash fans with ease over time.

Pinching technique

Using the lash pinching technique for handmade volume fans requires a firm grip and handiwork from the artist. So for this, you need to start by taking a small chunk of lashes from the lash strip and then firmly hold it between your thumb and forefingers applying slight pressure with the help of tweezers to firmly grip the lashes. This takes practice but makes sure not to accidentally roll the base of the lash. Once the grip is firm, keep pinching the lashes between your fingers while also using your tweezers to slowly open up the fan evenly. As soon as your handmade volume fans have neatly opened up in the shape you desire, lightly dip them in the glue and apply.

Practice makes perfect

Now that all is said and done, in order to refine and perfect your craft, it is important to practice how to make your own handmade volume lashes so that you can run a quality service operation and brush up on your skillset. This is especially necessary for newbie lash artists who are not yet comfortable using their own handmade eyelash fans on a client. Trying out different fanning techniques and playing with different fan sizes at home will allow you to grow as a professional lash artist who is armed with both experience and knowledge.

We hope this post enables any aspiring lash artist to get going on their lash-making journey and inspires some confidence in those who are trying to learn how to create their very own handmade volume fans for the first time.
