Spike usually looks the best when adding to a full volume set. Lash spikes add flare instantly and provide a bold and wispy look to lashes.
In addition to using pre-made spikes, you can also easily create spiky sets using easy fanning lashes.
① Put some sealant on the lashes, so that the lashes are all clumped up together.
② Peel off some lashes off the strip and not fanning them out. Pull off any that aren't aligned, because you still want the bases to be all aligned.
③ Dip the spike in a little bit of glue and place it on the client's eyes.
What thickness to use?
✘ It's not recommended to do spikes with 0.10, 0.15 or 0.18 classic lashes. Because technically, spikes are still volumes, you are just not fanning it out. So you can not use the weight of classic for this technique, it will be too heavy for the clients' eyes.
✔ Use lashes that you use for volume fans, like 0.5, or 03 to make perfect spiky sets. It's easier to use easy fan lashes, because they are glued together at the base.
