Tired of waiting 20+ minutes for your remover to work properly?! We were too… so look no further, lash friend!We're here to help with a step by step guide to spot removing lash extensions. We'll provide a list of everything you'll need to complete the services, go over 2 different methods of full removals, and even provide troubleshooting tips for what to do if you see white residue on the lashes! Let’s get into it…
First, let’s talk about products. What we use as lash artists is crucial, which is why we’ll only recommend the highest quality products for removing lash extensions. In this section, we’ll cover all the products you’ll need for both methods of lash extension removals:
Meet your new B.F.F.Undo! Undo is our remover with a gentle, yet quick and effective formulation that processes in only 3-5 minutes. We wouldn’t call it a gel, or even a cream… It’s a perfect sweet spot between the two that isn’t too runny or too solid. Removing lash extensions is a lot less nerve-wracking when your remover isn’t running all over the place… We got you! It’s also pink, which makes it SO easy to see where you’ve placed the remover. It even comes individually packaged which minimizes product waste and keeps sanitation levels at an all time high. No cross contamination here, yuck!
Lip Applicators (Disposables)
Next up, you’re going to want to have some disposables on hand for easy application! Lip applicators are our fav for removing lash extensions. They’re big enough for efficient application but small enough that you won’t make a mess all over your client’s eyes.
The Undies or The Lil Undies (Under Eye Gel Patches)
Then, you’ll want to have gel patches to keep those bottom lashes out of the way and avoid getting remover under the eyes or on the skin. We like to useThe Undies or The Lil Undies, depending on the client’s eye shape. These patches have the perfect fit for any client to ensure removing lash extensions stays mess free!
Moving on, keep some paper towels ready. This surface is simply to place any of those removed lash extensions for easy clean-up.
Prolong (Lash Cleanser)
Last up, lash cleanser! This is essential to remove any residual remover at the end of the service. Our fav isProlong lash shampoo because it’s a gentle cleanser that is so effective. It’s pH balanced for client comfort, vegan friendly and formulated WITHOUT oil, glycerine, glycerol, artificial colour, ethanol, parabens or synthetic fragrances.
You’ll want to have a small rectangular piece of saran wrap as well. Make sure to cut a rectangle that’s big enough to wrap around all of the lashes you’re removing.
Removing Lash Extensions: Method #1
Seeing any white residue? Don’t freak out, it’s just leftover adhesive! Instead of tugging on it or trying to cleanse it off, just apply a little more Undo. Continue to wait 3-5 minutes and push it away from the eye with a lip applicator once again.
