Tweezers 101

Tweezers 101

As a professional lash artist, you know that the right tools can make or break your work flow! From speed to your own health + ergonomics your tweezers and how you use them play a huge role in your lash life. Your lash extension tweezers play a critical role in both natural lash isolation and every technique from classic to mega volume. However, with so many types of tweezers available on the market, choosing the right pair for your specific needs and preferences, can be overwhelming. In this blog post, we will take an in-depth look at lash extension tweezers, exploring the various types of tweezers available, what to consider when selecting the right pair, and how to maintain them properly to achieve long-lasting results. Whether you're a seasoned lash artist or new to the craft, keep reading to learn all about the importance of your lash extension tweezers!

Just like us, tweezers come in all shapes, kinds, colors, finishes, materials, and textures! We’ve created our collection of tweezers to suit a range of techniques and preferences all inspired by our lash nerd community, where the little details MATTER!

First up… let’s talk isolation. Working in a variety of natural lashes means you need a variety of tools! From thin, fragile lashes to dense, layered lash lines your isolation tools can make or break your whole application. The line up:

Meet the best friend of any lash artist: the B.F.F. isolation tweezer. The B.F.F. tweezer is super reliable and helpful (like any good bestie). Its sharp 45-degree angle makes separating a natural lash surprisingly easy, allowing for a more accurate attachment. Regardless of application preference and experience, all lash artists need a B.F.F. in their life. 

This is a great tweezer for delicate, fragile lash lines and working in areas like the inner corner, where lashes can be a spaced tightly and overlapping. With such a delicate angled tip you can avoid excess pressure on the under eye pad. It even comes in a short + long version so you can choose the comfiest fit! 

The M.O.

Designed with a slight slant for extra comfort, these tweezers bring the versatility. Get the perfect, precise angle for isolation with these ultra thin tipped tweezers. Great for isolating lashes with a slight curve/curl and for when you lift the lash line with grip tape! Ergonomic design is the most comfortable angle you’ll find. 


The Pick-Me-Up 

This versatile tweezer can go from isolation to classic or volume pickup in a wink! The J curve means you can isolate down to those hard to reach bottom layers and get a deep, clean isolation in even the thickest natural lash lines. And the super fine tips means classic lash pickup is a breeze too! 

Our UA pros love it for the pinch method of fan making because it can grab even the thinnest .03 volume fans flawlessly!

This is a staple tweezer to have in your collection.

And lastly the O.G super straight tweezer is a slim, sleek precision tool! Isolate the finest lashes with accuracy and ease. The extra light weight, slender design is nearly weightless in your hand and features the softest closure tension ever because hand fatigue just ain’t it. Our UA pros love it for isolating in those dainty inner covers!

So now we’ve covered our isolation tweezers, let’s get into the options for lash extension pickup and volume fan making! Regardless of the technique you use, our collection of tweezers was designed for every technique you can imagine! Lash nerds are diverse… so our collection of tools reflects that!

Sharp Shooter:

The L shaped tweezer was one of the first style of volume tweezers popular in North America! With a pointed tip, it allows you to “pick” apart your volume fans or grip even the widest mega fans without losing a lash. Our pros love it for classic lash pick up too!


Down to Fan:

This has to be the first tweezer to get volume lash artists in a chokehold! When volume first was adapted in North America most of the tweezers looked like our Down to Fan.  The petite, dense little boot concentrates all the pressure into the boot for a rock solid closure and precise pickup every time.  Because she’s petite, her tiny boot is perfect for making narrow volume fans!

Also fabulous for classic lash pickup with her refined tip! And best of all, Down to Fan comes in standard and MICROGRIP! Microgrip is a micro textured, laser-etched finish on the inside of the foot. This unique finish adds unmatched grip strength and alleviates all tension in your pickup. This means extra grip with less pressure = a lash nerd dream come TRUE!


Jet Setter: 

The Jet Setter has ever met a lash extension they didn’t like! From classic to the widest, fluffiest volume fans this tweezer can do it all and then some.  We’ve tested this style with loads of volume fan making techniques from pinching, to rolling out on the strip, to sticky dot, and even lonely fan… and each + everytime the Jet Setter goes above and beyond. 

Our pros love the slim boot because of how versatile it is for picking up the shortest lengths as itty bitty as 5mm! From short to long and narrow to wide the Jet Setter is always ready for take off.


Pitch Perfect:

If classic and modern volume lash enthusiasts could create the perfect tweezer it’s, Pitch Perfect! A slender, precision boot features a lower profile with extended length on the boot so you get the unbeatable grip with a little extra surface area. So the widest volume fans to the shortest lengths are all a breeze to grip. 

There’s nothing quite like the versatility of the Pitch Perfect tweezer no matter your skill level! And like Down to Fan, Pitch Perfect comes in a standard + microgrip model.

At UA we pride ourselves on creating artist inspired tools + products that support unlimited creativity! There’s no “BEST” tool (thought we have to brag our quality is top notch) but only what works BEST for YOU! We embrace all the things that makes the lash nerd community unique from preference and experience to technique.  Investing in the tools + products that empower your creativity and skills is the best way to build confidence in your artistry!
