Lash extension tools are precious commodities for lash artists. Not only do you spend a lot of money on them, but you also put in a lot of time and effort to complete them. So naturally, you want to ensure they last.

However, it's easier said than done. Various factors can influence the durability of your tools—quality, usage, and maintenance—which can be challenging.

At Beauty Boss Academy's lash training, we have all the tips and tricks you need to keep your lash tools in top condition for a long time. We will discuss all you need to know, from how to clean them properly to storing them correctly.

A Quick Lash Extensions Training: 5 Management Tips to Extend the Lifespan of Your Lash Tools

Lash tools play a significant role in your lash career. They bring your lash dreams to reality and help you show off your skills. So when they're on the brink of malfunctioning, you and your client are also put at risk. Remember, faulty tools are dangerous!

Therefore, it's important to keep the condition of your tools in check to extend their lifespan. This means taking care of and managing them well. Below are quick lash tool management tips for a worthy investment.

Tip #1: Make a “Kit Essentials” Checklist

The first thing you can do is know what's in your kit at all times. This way, you can catch when something's missing and avoid using the wrong tool for a certain lash job. Furthermore, it's a great way to keep track of your tools' condition.

What should be in a basic lash extension kit for lash techs? Typically, you should include tweezers, adhesives, lash tapes and pads, a lash remover, and a primer in your lash kit. Of course, you can add more as necessary. Then, frequently check if these tools are still in good condition or may need replacement.

Tip #2: Don't Skip Your Cleaning Duties

Hygiene is a big factor in the beauty industry. Using clean tools helps prevent the spread of bacteria and infection—things you and your client would definitely want to avoid in lash extension appointments.

Cleaning your lash tools is a must, regardless of how often you use them. As much as possible, clean your tools before, in-between, or after every appointment. Learn the stages of lash space cleaning (sanitation, disinfection, and sterilization) and get rid of disposable tools immediately to avoid reusing them.

Tip #3: Keep an Extra Set of Tools

What's worse than not having the right lash tool for the job? It's not having any tools to work because your set just broke! And as if to add fuel to the fire, it happens during a full day of back-to-back appointments; you don't have enough time to fix anything.

To avoid a stressful situation like this, keep a backup set of lash extension tools ready. This way, you can quickly grab them when something happens to your primary set or if you need to soak them clean for a certain amount of time. Also, you might want to consider keeping assorted tool colours to brighten up your sets!

Tip #4: Look for High-Quality Tools and Products

Everything in your lash career, from your services to the lash tools, should be based on quality over quantity. It might be tempting to purchase cheaper options since they don't dent your budget, but they might not last long. In the end, you still have to replace them more often than not, defeating the purpose of financial management. 

Thus, learn to invest in high-quality lash equipment in the first place. If you're unsure where to find the best and most trusted brands, do your research or ask lash experts for recommendations.

Tip #5: Store Them Properly

Last but not least, practice proper storage. After each appointment, put your lash tools back in their rightful places. Proper storage helps maintain their condition and keeps them from getting damaged, misplaced, or mixed up with one another.

Plus, it will save you time after work! So what are some good practices for storing lash tools? One example is to use different organizers and containers (ziplock bags, airtight containers, and lash trays). Another is arranging the tools according to type, size, purpose, or color for easy access.

Don't Be Scared if You Have Come Prepared

As a lash artist, maintaining your lash tools is a simple way to demonstrate how you care for your investment. Furthermore, it expresses your determination to provide clients with excellent service. So don't be afraid of making mistakes because having the best tools on hand can help you minimize the risks.

The tips we discussed might seem difficult to remember, but they'll become good, lasting habits in no time! Take it slowly and surely; you're just starting out after completing your training for lash extensions. Give yourself some grace as you adapt to your growing lash career.
