How To Map Lash Extensions

How To Map Lash ExtensionsWhen you are applying a series of lash extensions it’s important to consider lash mapping as part of your process. Mapping lashes on each one of your clients can help to make sure that you end up with an even look on every lash length. Outlining the lash length and working to segment lashes using the under eye pads before you begin can make sure that you can determine the ideal length for extensions and the natural flow of the lashes. Here are some most important steps to follow when figuring out How to map Lash Extensions.

Lash Mapping

Lash mapping has many benefits and it ultimately comes down to a procedure for symmetry. If you want to get the ideal symmetry between both eyes and throughout the length of lashes, you need to build a series of transitions into the lashes to make them appear much more natural. Doing a lash mount ensures that you can layer it easier and plan the process of your eyelash extensions. Lash mapping also works to cut down on treatment times too.

Mapping Eye Shapes

Using lash mapping can be an excellent way to determine the shape of the eye that your client has as well as the right type of lashes that will suit them. If your client has round, narrow, monolid or hooded eye shapes, this can be conducive to specific types of eyelash mapping. The mapping process will make sure that you are doing this well and truly capturing the shape of their eyes.

The Main Types Of Lash Maps

Open eye: the open eyelash map has the longest/placed in a central position in an outline around the pupil. As lashes shortness they reach the inner and outer corners, this gives you a natural progression of where you will be placing the eyelashes.

Feline: This lash map starts by taking a line from the outside of the nose and through the iris as well as through the kink of the brow. This will help you locate the longest lash depending on the shape of the face.

How To Lash Map

To start the process of lash mapping, begin first by marking the area of the pupil where the lash is longer according to each mapping type. Mark the lashes from the high point and moved to the lower point by prepping the eye pads with the map.

Split the sections and grade along the pads to produce the inner and outer corner for your ideal lash style.

Use the lash extensions in tiers starting with the longest lashes and moving into the shorter lashes as you progress.

When you have your middle length marked on the lash map, you can understand when it’s time to switch over to smaller lengths. You can also have an inner corner length so that you can choose the right finishing lash extension.

Repeat the process on both eyes before you begin applying for extensions and you will have a proper guide for proceeding.
