Whether you're a professional lash artist or just starting out, this guide will help you set up a functional and efficient lash cart that enhances your productivity and client experience. So let's dive in and discover the key elements of an expertly organized lash cart.
The Importance of a Well-Organized Lash Cart
Having a well-organized lash cart is crucial for every lash artist. Not only does it improve efficiency during appointments, but it also creates a professional and visually appealing workspace. A properly organized lash cart ensures that all your tools and supplies are readily accessible, promoting a seamless workflow and enhancing the overall client experience.
Top Shelf Essentials for Quick Access
On the top shelf of your lash cart, it's essential to keep frequently used items within easy reach.
Hygrometer and Hand Sanitizer: Prioritize hygiene by having a hygrometer to monitor temperature and humidity levels in your lash room. Additionally, keep hand sanitizer for regular use throughout the day.
Lash Mirror and Jade Stones: Place the Lash Mirror nearby, but not directly beside the client's head, for easy access during checks. Use a Jade Stone for maintaining a clean and non-cross-contaminated workspace.
Tape and Scissors: Keep different types of tape, such as pink Micropore Tape, for taping down lashes and securing the bottom lashes. Use scissors for precise cutting of tape, ensuring optimal results.
Lash Glue and Accessories
Optimize the organization of your lash cart by dedicating space for lash glue and other accessories. I recommend keeping these items on the top shelf as well.
Glue Storage Container: Store your lash glue in an airtight container, such as a Lash Glue Storage Container. Include a silica pack to maintain glue freshness and prevent premature curing.
Tape and Jade Stone Stickers: Use jade stones with Jade Stone Stickers to ensure a clean and convenient surface for glue placement. Sort your types of tape based on their application purposes, such as taping down the bottom lashes or manipulating the upper lid.
Glue Rings vs. Jade Stones: Consider using jade stones instead of Glue Rings to minimize accidents, minimize waste and maintain optimal glue temperature. Ensure proper cleaning and sanitization of all tools and accessories.
Lash Primer: Before applying lash extensions, it's essential to properly prepare the natural lashes. Lash primerhelps remove oils and residue from the lashes, ensuring better adhesion of the extensions. It promotes better retention and enhances the overall durability of the lash extensions.
Super Bonder:Super bonderis a game-changer when it comes to lash longevity. By using a super bonder, you can significantly improve the bond between the natural lashes and the extensions, leading to better retention and less frequent touch-ups.
Lash Glue: The quality of your lash glue plays a vital role in the success of your lash applications. Choose a lash glue that suits your technique and the needs of your clients. Consider factors like drying time, flexibility, and adhesive strength. It's important to have a reliable lash glue that ensures a strong bond while also being safe and comfortable for your clients.
Tools for Lash Application and Mapping
Efficient lash application and mapping require specific tools and accessories. Here's what you need:
Wands and Brushes: Keep your Mascara Wands, Micro Brushes, and Foam Brushes in a designated compartment for easy access during lash application and removal. These are best kept in a drawer, or a sealed bag to keep them sanitary.
Air Pump Blower and Fan: Have an Air Pump Blower as a backup for drying lashes in case your fan malfunctions. Use a reliable fan with adjustable settings to ensure optimal drying and client comfort.
Lash Tweezers and Cleaning: Organize your sterilized Tweezers and make sure they are covered when not in use. Don't forget to have extra sets of tweezers. You'll need time to properly soak and sterilize tweezers in between clients. Have rubbing alcohol, a nail file and acetone on hand to remove any glue that gets stuck to tweezers.
Pre-made Fans and Lash Inventory
Allocate space on your lash cart for lash extension inventory:
Lash Inventory: Depending on your services, ensure you have an ample supply of Easy Fan Lashes, Classic Lashes, or any other lash types you commonly use. Keep the inventory minimal on the cart and store additional stock separately.
Additional Essentials and Hygiene
To complete your lash cart setup, consider these final essentials:
Lighting Control: Use a remote-controlled light with adjustable settings to provide adequate lighting conditions during lash application.
Hygiene and Disinfection: Maintain a clean environment by utilizing disinfectant sprays for surfaces, including door handles and your lash cart. Keep hand sanitizer readily available for regular use.
Water Sprayer: Fill a small bottle with distilled water for cleaning the client's eyes during lash application. Ensure the bottle is cleaned and refilled with distilled water regularly.
