Y and W lashes are a type of lash extension that can be applied with a classic application technique but will create a light volume set, similar to pre-made fans. In this blog we look further into what the difference is between YY and W lashes and what makes them so popular. 
Both W & YY lashes can create light volume sets with ease. W lashes are designed to appear in the shape of a ‘W’ which consists of lash extensions bonded together to form a pre-made fan. Similarly to the W lashes, YY lashes have been designed in the shape of a double layered ‘Y’. 
The main difference between W & YY lashes is the number of lashes per fan. YY Lashes have 4 lashes per fan that form the shape of a double layered Y, whereas the W lashes have 6 lashes per pre-made fan that form the shape of a W. The photos below show the difference between the two fans.

When we first start out in the beauty industry, or any industry for that matter, there is so much to take on board. Lash courses usually start by covering the basics, and then you can opt for additional training to start building on your basic knowledge. Most people like to focus on perfecting the basics first and then some get carried away and before they know it, are 5 years deep in the beauty industry with only their initial training and experience to help them by.
As a team of experienced lash technicians and beauticians, we have decided to put together a list of our top tips and tricks we just WISH we knew as a beginner. These tips have all changed our lives (a bit dramatic, but you get the idea) in some way or another, and so we hope that they will do the same for you too!
