All Eyelash Stylists, as well as their clients, feel the difference between using pre-made eyelash fans and freshly made eyelash fans. On the one hand, the pre-made fans are already prepared inside the box and ready to be applied. On the other hand, hand-made fans have to be delicately constructed at the time of application. So, we come to a question:
Is it worth spending my time making the fans or is it preferable to use pre-made fans?
To answer this question, several parameters must be taken into account. It is true that ready-made fans are much faster and more convenient, but the results with freshly made fans are generally better. This is mainly due to the fact that when pre-made fans are being used, there is a much greater difficulty in adjusting the sizes and thicknesses to the natural lashes of each client.
Another factor to take into account is comfort. We know that pre-made fans already come with glue applied, that is, it will be necessary to apply a new layer of glue on top of the previous one, so that the fan sticks to the natural eyelash. Thus, if the technique is not careful, lumps of glue can form that are very likely to be uncomfortable for the client.
As for retention, experience tells us that pre-made fans tend to last less, as they are glued directly to the "base" of the natural lash, as opposed to freshly made fans that "surround" the natural lash, creating more contact surface.
Looking at these points, we realize that there are several benefits in terms of results when making the fans at the moment, however, each client has their specific needs and values different things, so if time is the client's top priority it is without a doubt faster to use ready-made fans.
At the end of the day, the decision is never easy, but the main thing to remember is that we must always adapt the various methods and techniques, taking into account their pros and cons, to the needs of each client.
