Summertime Lash Care

How to lash and care for lashes in the warmer months

 

In the summertime, your clients are swimming, sweating, applying sunscreen, and spending more time outdoors. It’s the most fun time of year, but it can also be the worst time of year for lash extension retention! We’re breaking down the key factors that impact how long your clients’ lashes last and how you can adjust your process to account for these seasonal effects.

 

How does summer weather affect lashing?

Recall that cyanoacrylate is the base ingredient in lash adhesives. Cyanoacrylate is finicky and strongly impacted by changes in temperature and humidity levels. As temperature and humidity increase, adhesives will work faster.
