DIY: How to Create Strip Lashes with Braiding Fiber

Strip Lashes with ShapeShifter:

Learn how to make strip lashes with ShapeShifter.

Items Needed:
Shapeshifter Monofiber
Weaving Thread
Tape
Perm Rods
Scissors
Tweezers
Comb
Brush
Liquid Nail Glue
Towel
Freshly Boiled Hot Water
Old Lash Tray
Hair Spray

Steps:
1. Set up your work area, positioning your weaving thread using risers. (We used perm rods.)
2. Determine your desired lash cluster thickness by doubling over a bit of fiber. The fewer the strands the finer your finished product.
3. Hold the fiber at the middle and place the top loop under the weaving thread.
4. Push the tail ends of the hair and pull it through its loop. Use tweezers if needed.
5. Pull knot tightly to secure.
6. Repeat this process until you have achieved your desired lash width.
5. Position knots for desired thickness.
6. Pull knots tight.
7. Apply a thin coat of liquid nail glue across the knots.
8. Allow glue to dry completely.
9. Comb hair straight.
10. Position perm rod underneath your hair.
11. Use the corner of a towel that has been dipped into freshly boiled water, to bend the fiber around the rod. Hold in position until the heat dissipates.
12. Repeat as needed to create a proper curl.
13. Cut the lash away from the riser and tape to an old lash try to help shape.
14. Cut away excess fiber length.
15. Point cut to shape each lash. (Make sure you do both of your lashes at the same time.)
16. Remove from lash tray, cut away excess thread and work lash into a curve shape.
17. Your new lashes are now ready to wear.

    I loved your tutorial on making your own eyelash stripes. I’m a licensed hairstylist and licensed instructor. I teach cosmetology and esthetics. I would love to take a workshop. Do you hold any workshops for making your own eyelash strip.

      Thank you! I don't have any workshops at the moment. If it's something you are interested in making happen, we can definitely discuss some options :)
