If you're just starting your journey as a Lash Technician, you've probably realised that working in the world of eyelash extensions can be incredibly rewarding and satisfying. However, before you start creating those stunning lash sets, you'll need to invest in the right tools of the trade. With so many options out there, it can feel a little overwhelming trying to figure out which one suits your needs best. So, to help make things easier, we’ve broken down everything you need to know before you purchase your lash extension kit, including a guide outlining each of London Lash’s lash extension kits and who they're best suited for.


Key Considerations When Choosing a Lash Extension Kit

When choosing your lash extension kit, keep these factors in mind:

Quality is King: As a beginner, you might be tempted to go for the cheapest option available. However, remember that quality should be your top priority. High-quality lash extension products will not only give your clients better results but will also make your job easier and more enjoyable.

Product Variety: Look for lash extension kits that offer a variety of eyelash extensions, including different lengths, curls, and thicknesses. This will give you the flexibility to cater to your clients' unique preferences and needs.

Eyelash Glue and Lash Extensions Remover: Make sure the lash extension kit includes a reliable lash glue and a gentle eyelash extension remover. These are two of the most critical components of your lash kit, as they directly affect the longevity and safety of your client’s lashes.

Isolation Lash Tweezers: Isolation Lash Tweezers are essential for separating natural lashes, ensuring that you apply the eyelash extensions individually and precisely. Look for lash extension kits that include high-quality Isolation Lash Tweezers.

Lash Glue Stone: Lash Glue Stones are a convenient way to access your eyelash glue during application. Lash kits that include these can be a great time-saver!

Skill Level: Consider your experience level as a Lash Technician. If you're just starting out, opt for a beginner-friendly lash extension kit.

Budget: Your budget also plays a crucial role. While investing in a comprehensive lash kit might seem expensive initially, it can save you money in the long run by providing all the lash essentials you’ll need in one package.

Future Growth: Think about your long-term goals. If you plan to expand your services and clientele, investing in a more extensive lash extension kit would be wise.
