Mastering the Art of Lash Lift: Choosing the Right Lash Shield Size

Are you ready to take your beauty career to the next level? Lash lifts are in high demand, and it's no wonder. With each treatment potentially earning you around $50-$70, it's not just a beauty service—it's a lucrative opportunity.

As the beauty industry evolves, clients are looking for a more natural, low-maintenance option for enhancing their lashes. Many are shifting away from the continued upkeep of lash extensions, making lash lifts a hot trend. The minimalism movement is not only influencing skincare and makeup but also the way we approach lash enhancements.

If you're one of the many students who've completed our Online Lash Lift & Brow Lamination Certification Course, you already know the incredible potential of this treatment. However, one aspect that can be a bit tricky to master is selecting the correct lash shield size and fitting it perfectly. It takes practice, but with confidence and the right techniques, you can excel in this essential skill.

In this blog, we'll delve into the best practices for choosing the right shield size and offer invaluable tips for a successful lash shield application. So, let's dive in and discover how to make lash lifts a cornerstone of your beauty career!

Understanding Lash Shield Sizes

Our premium lash shields, also known as lash rods or shields, come in various sizes, typically labeled with numbers or named according to their curvature and are found in our Professional Tool Kit.

These sizes affect the curl and lift each client's lashes will receive.

  • Small Shields: Small shields create a tighter curl, making them ideal for clients with shorter lashes or those desiring a more pronounced curl.
  • Medium Shields: Medium-sized shields offer a balance between curl and lift, suitable for clients with average lash length.
  • Medium 1 Shields: Perfect for natural lashes ranging from 8mm to 9mm and will result in a more softer lift. 
  • Medium 2 Shields: Ideal for clients that have more natural lashes ranging from 8mm-10mm and will also result in a more softer lift.
  • Large Shields: Large shields yield a softer curl and are excellent for clients with longer lashes or those seeking a more natural look.

The size of the rods used for lash lifts should be selected according to your clients length and eye size. It's important to keep in mind that the results achieved with different types of rods and shields may vary. 





The Lash Fitting Technique

Choosing the right shield size isn't just about taking a guess; it's a precise process known as "lash fitting." This technique ensures a custom-fit lash lift tailored to your client's unique lash characteristics. Here's how it works:

  • At the beginning of your appointment, before applying the shield with adhesive, perform the "lash fitting."
  • Use a lash comb to gently lift the client's lashes onto the shield. This step helps you determine how much of the shield their lashes will cover.
  • The goal is to find the perfect fit, where the lashes reach approximately 70% of the shield's length. This initial measurement ensures that when you begin to secure the lashes with adhesive, most of them will reach 100% of the shield length, creating the ideal lift.



The lash fitting technique is a game-changer in achieving a precise and tailored lash lift. It allows you to adjust the shield size according to your client's unique lash length and curl, ensuring stunning results with maximum comfort.

Remember, this technique may require a bit of practice, but it's a crucial step in the lash lift process that can make all the difference in your client's satisfaction and the overall success of your treatment.
