What Products to Use for Classic Lash Extensions: A Lash Technician’s Guide

If you're new to the eyelash extensions industry or just new to London Lash, you most probably have some questions about which are the best products for Classic lash extension sets. Don't worry! We were all beginners once, so we've compiled a list of our favorite products for Classic lash extensions!

Lash Glue

Choosing the right glue can be a bit tricky because there's no one-size-fits-all answer to the question, "What's the best eyelash extension glue for beginners?" Generally speaking, when you're just starting out, you'll want a glue that dries a bit more slowly, giving you time to place and adjust the extension if necessary.

In this case, we recommend Satin Bond, which has a 2-second drying time and a slightly thicker consistency. This helps you pick up the right amount of glue more easily. If you prefer something a bit faster, try Lady Bond, which has a runnier consistency and a 1-2 second drying time. We also offer sample-sized bottles, so you can try both and see which one suits you best!

The type of lashes you choose depends on the look you're aiming for, but here are some staples we love for a Classic lash kit:

These options will give you beautiful, mascara-like Classic lashes that are eye-catching without being too heavy. Feel free to expand your collection with different curls and finishes to find what you love most!

Our favorite method by far is the 5-step method! It's tried and tested and works wonders for lash retention. To make things easier, we've even bundled it together.

If you're on a tighter budget, no worries—we've got duos available! If you’re not yet sure about pretreatment, what it does, or which routine will suit your needs, check out our pretreatment blog post here!

Lash Tweezers

Much like eyelash glue, the best lash tweezers come down to personal preference. My favorites for Classic lashes are Curved Isolation Tweezers for isolation and Multifunctional Tweezers for picking up extensions. I find that both of these tweezers have comfortable angles, making treatments easier on my wrists. However, there are many shapes available, so experiment to find what works best for you!

These items aren't essential, but they can significantly enhance your treatment experience: 

  • Glue shakers save time and ensure your glue is perfectly mixed, improving retention. 
  • Glue stones and stickers make cleanup easier and are better for you and your client than a glue ring.
  • Eye patches are more comfortable for clients than tape alone and provide an ideal surface for drawing lash maps.
