When choosing a rod there are a few things to consider:
Eye Shape – This will play a large role in determining whether to utilise a rod or a shield. Does your client have round eyes? Are they protruding? Hooded? Explore various eye shapes to drive your confidence in your rod or shield selection.
Desired Result – A great question to ask your Client is “Do you curl your lashes at home? and if so, how?” If they use an eyelash curler and take it right to the base of their lashes, they will most likely prefer the extreme shield. If they mention that they curl in sections for a more natural-looking curl, then your rod will be your go-to for this Client
These are the original option for lash lifting
These will give you a natural C-Curl and an impressive lift to the eye
The emphasis point of when using a rod is in the mid-section of the lashes, this is where the focus point will be when your lift/lamination is complete
Rods are great used for a person who has naturally long lashes that might require a Large or X-Large rod size who isn’t requiring more height; however, still looking for balance and symmetry with their naturally long lashes
Rods also work extremely well for clients with round shaped eyes as this will help to improve the overall appearance of not focusing on the round shape of their eye and potentially over exaggerating that area but complimenting the round shape with a soft curl.
