How to Pick the Right Tweezers for Lash Technicians
Picking the best tweezers for you pretty much comes down to personal choice, which is why there are so many different shapes - but that doesn’t mean we’re not here to help you make a slightly more informed decision!
Tweezers for Isolation and Classic Lashes
Tweezers for isolation and for picking up classic lashes are kind of interchangeable, and a lot of the time will simply come down to the tweezers that you’re given on your first ever course - a friend of mine always used straight tweezers to isolate and when I made a comment that the angle is all wrong for me personally, she reminded me that straight was the only shape available when she did her course, so now she was so used to the angle that it just worked! For me though, the angled or curved isolation tweezers made my wrists much happier as it felt like it was in a more neutral position.
For picking up classic lashes, you have all above options PLUS the multifunctional tweezers - these are always great to have in your tweezers collection anyway because they pick up classic lashes, Russian Volume fans up to 3D, and they’re really great for working with easy fanning lashes! There’s also no real reason you can’t isolate with them, if you’re in a pinch!
For Volume Lashes
So you’ve found your favourite isolation tweezers and you’re having no issues with picking up classic lashes - now you need some for volume.
Aside from the Multifunctional Tweezers we’ve spoken about a little bit above, you have two main options when it comes to tweezers for Russian Volume - Regular Volume Tweezers, and Fine Tipped Volume Tweezers.
Why these? Tweezers crafted specifically for volume techniques are made with the sole purpose of creating and picking up a volume fan - they’re a bit sturdier and grippier so that you don’t lose your fan when you pick it up from the strip. As a little side note - they’re also hand tested in-house by our award winning lash extensions technicians to make sure they’re perfect for you.
Can You Use Curved Tweezers to Make Volume Fans?
Technically yes, there’s nothing stopping you but keep in mind that they’re not as sturdy because they’re only really for holding apart the natural lashes, or for picking up one classic lash. If you find that curved tweezers work well for you, that’s great, but don’t be surprised if they don’t last as long, or if you always lose a lash or two when you pick the fan up.
Are ALL London Lash Tweezers Hand Tested?
All tweezers which can pick up fans are tested to make sure they can do so as they are supposed to, any that don’t get sent back to the factory to be recycled. Any tweezers that aren’t destined for fan making are visually checked to make sure they’re up to standard aesthetically, and to make sure nothing happened to the tips during transit - no-one likes a wiggly tip!
What Happens if I Get Lash Glue on My Tweezer Tips? Are They Ruined?
Nope! Because they’re made from medical grade stainless steel you can clean then easily with our glue remover for tweezers, which come complete with little sponge balls to help get the glue off of the tips!
