Improving Your Classic Lash Sets with Mackenzie Unsworth

Improving Your Classic Lash Sets with Mackenzie Unsworth

In this episode, AnneMarie is joined by Untamed Marketing Coordinator and expert lash artist Mackenzie Unsworth. Mackenzie is here to help talk through some of the difficulties lash artists may encounter when applying classic sets. From technical tips to make these sets look fuller, last longer, and not damage natural lashes - to time-saving and pricing recommendations - Mack is happy to talk with us and encourage anyone who may be discouraged or “anti-classic lash sets”. They can and do take time, but it’s just important to practice, focus, and build your skills with some of the tips Mack shares with us today.

Expect to hear: 

  • Cheryl had her baby and is enjoying her newest journey as a mother! Catch up with Cheryl’s journey on Instagram @agoodenoughhuman
  • How to achieve a fuller look with classic sets
  • How to attach to baby natural lashes without damage
  • The difference of adding 7-10 tiny extensions to create a fuller look
  • When classics look crooked – tip is to apply straight, not in the direction of the lash growth
  • Some say classics don’t have good retention – but they absolutely do! It’s all in the technique, what you apply, and the adhesive you use (see our fav below!)
  • When sets look messy - make sure you’re using the right diameters
  • Managing client expectations
  • Mack’s best tips on improving your classic technique – distance, direction, and layering make all the difference
  • Attachment tips to get the best classic application
  • Tips for avoiding “snags” when brushing out – check your work for stickies or lifted bases
  • A discussion around pricing – don’t make your classic sets “wildly” cheaper than volume
  • Send us your classic set photos on Instagram!
