One of the main benefits of lash mapping is that it helps to maintain symmetry between both eyes. When we say map, we don’t mean a helping hand to get you from A to B, we mean a lash map!
Lash mapping helps you to create invisible length transitions resulting in flawless lashes. It will also enable you to determine which lengths and curls will be placed in each section of the eye when lashing. Every set of lashes should provide volume and length to the natural lash, but by planning and mapping out certain lash styles you are able to enhance the lashes and eyes even more.
We already have a blog on how to lash map, so if you are looking for a few tips on how to include it in your service, click here.
This blog focuses on the three most popular lash maps, detailing each. So without further ado, let’s get started!
Fox: Fox lash extensions are applied to lengthen the eye and pull it to the side. The lashes on the outer edge of the eye give the effect of a drawn arrow. The look is achieved by applying the shortest extensions to the inner corner and increasing the length towards the centre. The length will reach a maximum at the outer corner. Depending on the client’s natural lashes, extensions from 6 to 14 mm are used.
Squirrel: To create this look you will start short and gradually get longer in length. The halfway point of the eye will be the longest length, and then the lashes will gradually get shorter again. This lash style suits almond, close-set, downturned, monolid, hooded, protruding, and round eyes.
Cat: Is your client requesting more of an ‘exotic’ eye look? By using the longest lashes towards the outer part of the eye, you elongate the shape of the eye making it appear wider. This style suits almond, close-set, and round eyes.
