The background

Eyelash extensions are one of the fastest-growing trends in the UK for the modern woman’s beauty regime. The painstakingly long appointments can take on average between 1.5-3.5 hours. The process involves the isolation of one natural lash to apply an extension using adhesive. This involves patience and even more importantly the correct conditions. Lash glues require a temperature of 20-24 degrees with an humidity of 55% this can be very hard to control.

The challenge

Humidity issues can affect the application of eyelash extensions the process take longer and become frustrating for the technician. If the humidity is too high the glue may cure too quickly, resulting in a weak bond causing retention issues and sometimes the lashes just not sticking at all. If the humidity is too low this will slow down the curing process, leading to a longer appointment. As a Lash technician this is something I have battled with, in the Summer high humidity levels caused shock curing and retention issues. Now in the winter months the humidity levels have dropped massively leading to the opposite issue of slow drying time. This was meaning depending on my conditions I would have to adapt my technique.

The solution

“Humidity Solutions provided me with a small easy to use humidifier which has solved my low humidity issues allowing me to have a consistent environment to work in, speeding up my lashing time; making the process straight forward again. I had never considered how important something like humidity could be, but it has made a huge difference to my process and client’s retention. Thank you, Humidity Solutions!”
