What Are Fiber Tip Tweezers for Eyelash Extensions?
Like so many things in the lash industry, your standard product that anyone outside of the industry would think could be picked up anywhere for super cheap, lash extensions tweezers can become more and more advanced. We’ve just added some fiber tip lash tweezers to our collection, but what’s so good about them, and how will they benefit you?
Grab and Go
Any time you buy a pair of lash extensions tweezers you want to know they have decent grip. While we always make a point to check each and every pair of tweezers to make sure they have good grip, you do still have to find each pair’s sweet spot, which is the specific point in the tip that provides the optimal grip for picking up volume fans, if you didn’t know.
Each pair of tweezers has its own unique sweet spot so it can take a little bit of practicing with a new pair of lash extensions tweezers to really get to grips with how that specific pair works best.
With fiber tip lash tweezers, the inside of the foot has a textured diamond pattern which means that the entire surface has extra grip, and as such the whole tip serves at the sweet spot so you can get right down to lashing as soon as you open your new pair.
We Still Hand Test Them
Even though they’re all grip, we still take the time to hand test every single pair to make sure we’re giving you the best possible quality. We make sure the tips are equal in thickness, check that there are no bends that might upset that grip, and ensure that there are no scuffs or scratches that’ll make your tweezers look anything less than perfect in your lash kit.
Once we’ve tested them, we disinfect them, replace their rubber tip protector and put them back in their box, so that you know for sure that your tweezers have passed their inspection!
They Have THE Ultimate Grip
We mentioned grip already, but it's worth going into why grip is so important for lash extensions tweezers. While you’re mostly going to take notice of this when you’re making volume fans, good grip comes into everything with lashes, from classic lashes and hybrid lashes to premade volume fans, easy fanning lashes, and not to mention separating stickies – the whole lot.
Having confidence in your tweezers makes for a much better lashing experience for you and for your clients. You know they can pick up exactly what you need, you know you won’t struggle to separate stickies, and you know that you’ll never have any issues with picking up and placing classic lashes. Due to this, you'll become faster at your work as you won't have those moments that you have to correct a fan that's slipped in your tweezers after you've picked it up.
Which Pair Will be Best for You?
We truly believe that every lash extensions kit should have a pair of Multifunctional Tweezers in it as they’re so versatile – they’re great for isolation, picking up classic lashes, making quick 2D volume fans, picking up easy fanning lashes and premade volume fans, and are also going to be a very good friend to you where separating stickies is concerned. If nothing else, these are going to be great as a backup pair of tweezers in the event that you drop your regular pair and, being as they have that extra grippy fiber tip, you won’t even have that little period of time where you have to get used to a new pair of tweezers before you can get down to lashing.
Fine Tip Volume Tweezer is ideal for making any kind of volume fan in any technique – they make it quite easy to create fans using the pinching method as they provide excellent grip whilst allowing you to see exactly where you’re grabbing the fan, keeping them the exact width you’re aiming for. As they’re thinner, you’re also going to do well using these with premade volume fans as you have to pick them up in a really specific way.
Regular Tip Volume Tweezers have been part of the London Lash Tweezer lineup since we started offering tweezers – they’ve stood the test of time, with good reason. The thicker tip gives you greater control over gripping the entire body of your volume fans, and with the fiber tip on the tweezers you never have to worry about losing one lash on the edge of a fan again.
A Note on Cleaning
It’s hardly a drawback, especially given all of the benefits you can expect from a pair of fiber tip lash tweezers, but you should know that they're sometimes a little bit fussier than a standard pair of lash extensions tweezers, and that’s that due to the hex texture on the inside of the boot, you have to put a little bit more effort into cleaning then than you would a regular pair.
We’ve put together a little bundle for each which comes with a Glue Remover for Tweezers, we just recommend that you let the tweezers soak in the remover for a little while, and then really go to town on the foam balls to remove any glue that’s gotten into the grooves!
All things considered a fiber tip is a personal choice, but with them being the same price as a regular pair of the same type of tweezers, what do you have to lose?
