Improve the quality of extension by means of the Lashmaker Balance Wheel

What is a balance wheel and why is it needed?

This wheel is applied to narrow fields of activity, to life in general and even on projects. 

All you need is a half-hour of time, a piece of paper and a pen.

Using this simple tool you will identify weak areas in your lash work. It will help you quickly and easily realize which area is worth working on. 

Any balance wheel is designed to harmonize life or work (as in our case) so that there is o fixation on one thing, and all spheres develop evenly. So you can work on certain areas to become a more balanced Lash Artist.

In this article, we will talk about the LASHMAKER BALANCE WHEEL. We will identify weaknesses and begin work on them. Ideally, each item should have 10 points. But this requires a lot of experience, therefore, in the case of beginners, the wheel must be uniform so that it can roll. 

How to work with the lashmaker balance wheel:

  • Redraw the picture above on a piece of paper, sign the sectors.
  • Mark on a scale of 1 to 10 where you are currently at your own sensations.
  • Fill each sector.
  • Look at the resulting wheel inside.
  • Praise yourself for those sectors where you marked 7 and above points. 
  • Highlight 3 zones to work on.
  • Write a plan to improve them and act.

→ Intuitively mark the mark on the axis as described below:

◉ Speed

Where 10 is I always fit into the allotted time for extension, my clients admire the speed and do not get tired.

Where 1 is my time stands still, people groan and beg to let them go ‘as is’ and usually do not return.

◉ Filling percentage

10 – 100% filling , I have no problems with internal and external corners.

1 – The filling is less than 70%, I can’t get to lashes which are difficult to reach, I don’t see the bottom row, internal and external corners take away all the forces.

◉ Wear

10 – Every time it’s a pity to remove lashes. Clients wear them a long time and still come back with many lashes on. 

1 – Wear for about 2 weeks. Often lashes from one eye fall off earlier. Applied lashes fall off even when combing during the procedure.

◉ Symmetry

10 – I work with rowing not only at the moments of transition but also throughout the lashes row. The layout for both eyes is different, taking into account the characteristics of each of them. 

1 – I don’t see what rowing is, visually the eyes turn out different not only in density but also in length. I didn’t know that the eyes are asymmetrical.

◉ Margin

10 – Margin is perfect and uniform throughout the eyelid. Nothing pricks or annoys the client, and the natural lashes grow for a long time.

1 – Margin is a kind of moving throughout the eye. In some places, the client feels a tingling sensation; in others, the applied lashes swag.

◉ Direction

10 – It always turns out the way I planned. The applied lashes are close to each other. I know how to work in both a fan-like and fox-like direction. I adapt to the preferences of the client. After the procedure, the client does not want to touch them with a brush – everything is perfect. 

1 – The applied lashes are often cluttered, sometimes look messy and not neat, the client scratches with a brush for a long time after the procedure in the hope of laying them as needed.

◉ Glued spots

10 – The client does not have any glued spots or discomfort if they happen, I can easily remove them when checking.

1 – There are always glued spots, and they look like I can remove them only with a remover. The job is dirty.

◉ Effect selection

10 – I provide all measures to perfectly select the length, thickness and bend. Visually simulate the look of everyone around and even cats.

1 – Basically I hear, “This is not at all what I wanted.” I work with one or two effects, but I don’t know the rest. I do not have a lot of types of length and curl.

So, we connected all the points on the axis. We praise ourselves for all sectors in which we have 7 points or more. And then we write a plan of work on weak sectors.

It can be seminars, masterclasses and training on this topic (choose a convenient format for yourself – online or offline training, your favorite teachers).

Sign up for an upcoming championship, it will not let you relax and turn off the path of improvement.

Take photos of each of your work and analyze it.

Look at your usual work from a different angle. Be inspired by future achievements and into battle!
