Lash Shields Vs Lash Rods: Which is better?
- Consider your client's natural lash length: The length of your client's natural lashes will determine the size of the shield you need to use. If your client has shorter lashes, a smaller shield will be needed to achieve a more dramatic lift. On the other hand, if your client has longer lashes, a larger shield will be needed to give a more subtle lift.
- Take into account the desired outcome: The outcome your client desires will also play a role in the size of the shield you choose. If your client wants a dramatic lift, a smaller shield will be needed. If your client wants a more natural look, a larger shield will be appropriate. Lash lift rods on the other hand give more curl for the lashes.
- Pay attention to the shape of the eye: The shape of your client's eye should also be taken into account when choosing a shield size. A larger shield may be needed for clients with larger or more rounded eyes, while a smaller shield may be appropriate for clients with smaller or more almond-shaped eyes.
- Consider the thickness of the lashes: The thickness of your client's natural lashes should also be considered when choosing a shield size. Thicker lashes may require a larger shield to accommodate the extra volume.
It's important to remember that there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to lash lift shields. Each client is unique, and the size of the shield you choose will depend on their individual characteristics and desired outcome. iLevel Lab sells different sized lash lift shields, some of which are coordinated by color, for easier workflow. With iLevel Lab lash lift rods, you can achieve much curlier lashes for the client than with lash lift shields. Keep in mind that some lash lift rods are designed with a sticky adhesive on the rod, requiring minimal, to none, amount of additional adhesive to stick the lashes onto the rod.
