Choosing the Right Lash Tape

Selecting the right lash tape is crucial for a smooth and comfortable lash application process. Here are some tips to help you choose the best tape for your needs:

Skin Sensitivity:For clients with sensitive skin, opt for tapes like the Foam Tape or Dynarex Paper Surgical Tape that are designed to be gentle and hypoallergenic.

Visibility Needs: If you need to improve visibility and access to the natural lashes, the Eyelid Tape and the 3M Micropore Tape are excellent choices.

Adhesive Strength: For a strong and reliable hold, the Perforated Transparent Medical Tape and Dynarex Surgical Tape are ideal options.

Tips for Using Lash Tape

To ensure the best results, follow these tips when using lash tape:

Make sure the eye area is clean and free from oils and makeup to ensure the tape adheres properly. Remember to cut the tape to the appropriate size to avoid discomfort and ensure it stays in place. There’s nothing worse for a client than tape moving around throughout their appointment! Always check with your client to ensure the tape is comfortable and not causing any irritation.

It’s also important to be gentle when applying and removing the tape to avoid pulling on the skin or lashes. We aren’t trying to wax anyone!
