You may have never had colored lash extensions, or have been thinking about trying colored lashes?
It's easy to assume that black is every customer's first choice, and in many cases, it's likely the most popular color choice. But in recent years, colored lashes and ombre lashes have quickly gained popularity (and not just during the holiday season!) .
Let's find out now why they are so popular and how they go about differentiating them?
WHAT ARE COLORED LASHES?
Colored lashes have a slight variation - they maintain a consistent color from the base to the tip. They are available in various shades, and at Lashsoul, we provide an impressive selection of colored lashes.
Similar to ombre lashes, colored lash sets offer a range of options for clients who want to experiment with their look. These sets can be bold and eye-catching or more understated, depending on the desired outcome. For clients who want to make a statement at a festival, a combination of complementary colors would be a great choice. On the other hand, for those who are new to colored lashes and prefer a more subtle approach, incorporating a single color into classic black extensions would allow them to dip their toes in the water and gauge their comfort level.
WHAT ARE OMBRE LASHES?
Ombre lashes are perfect for designing unique and vibrant lash sets, offering the flexibility to achieve a subtle or dramatic look according to your preference. Ombre lash extensions typically start with a black or extremely dark base, gradually transitioning into various color gradients towards the ends. These extensions are available in a wide array of shades, ranging from striking purples to delicate pastel pinks.
WHEN CAN COLORED AND OMBRE LASHES BE USED?
The decision is completely in the hands of the client! There is no correct or incorrect timing to experiment with colored or ombre lash extensions, but certain occasions may witness a surge in demand:
1、The holiday season
We've talked about festivals, but what about the holiday season?! Adding colored lashes in traditional Christmas hues like red and green is a fantastic and playful way to embrace the Christmas vibe. Clients don't have to go all in if they prefer a more subtle look. Just a few red and green extensions mixed in with a regular black lash set can really add some excitement.
2、To craft lash sets inspired by Mermaids or Unicorns
You might be familiar with the terms unicorn and mermaid lashes, which gained immense popularity in 2017/8. Mermaid lashes are characterized by lash extensions in shades of purple, ocean blue, and green, while unicorn lashes typically feature pink, purple, and blue extensions.
Regardless of the style, both of these options offer a fantastic opportunity to achieve a stunning fusion of colors. Similar to how vibrant and colorful eyeshadows can enhance and accentuate our eye color, colored semi-permanent eyelash extensions can also do the same.
3. In order to substitute colored mascara
If your client has previously expressed interest in trying out colored mascara to enhance their eye color, why not recommend colored or ombre lashes as an alternative? While colored mascara offers a temporary effect that lasts only a few hours until you remove your makeup, semi-permanent lashes can provide weeks of long-lasting results.
Who wouldn't love the idea of saving both time and effort when it comes to applying mascara? Ombre lashes offer a fantastic solution, as they can provide a more understated look compared to colored mascara, thanks to their darker roots. This makes them ideal for individuals who enjoy the effect of colored mascara but require something more subtle for professional settings.
Can lashes of different colors be used to achieve an ombre lash effect?
You don't have to use ombre extensions to achieve an ombre lash set. By using colored lashes, lash technicians can create a gradient effect. They can begin with a darker shade of one color on the outer corners and gradually lighten the tones towards the inner corners.
On the other hand, if you apply black lashes on the lower layers and then add colored lashes on the upper layers, you can create a double ombre effect when your client opens their eyes!
I hope this blog post offers some inspiration for both you and your clients when it comes to trying out colored or ombre lashes!
