Narrow fans used to be quite new 2 years ago. However, it has become more popular among lash artists and many lash supplies brands have been selling it since last year. In this article, let’s learn what narrow fan is and in which case you should use this special fan instead of regular wide fan.
1. What is narrow fan?
Narrow fan is a fan with narrow/close openness. It typically has a longer stem, therefore offering more space area for bonding to natural lashes. It means you can achieve better retention with narrow lashes.
Narrow fan is the perfect option for creating Russian volume sets as the closed fan lash makes your work look more uniformed, denser and therefore more voluminous. It’s sought after by Russian volume lash artists, especially who are working in EU countries.
Most of promade fans in the market are medium or wide fans. When you send an inquiry to a manufacturer, if you don’t specify that you need closed fans, most of the time you’ll receive a quotation for regular (wide) fans. It’s because regular (wide) fans are more popular.
2. What’s the difference between narrow fans and regular wide fans?
This is a quick comparison of the two:
2.1. The appearance of narrow fan and wide fan
We already talked about the look of narrow fans in the first part. Basically, they have a narrower width and longer stem than regular wide fans do. But one thing you may not notice about the difference between the two is that: a wide fan’s base is a little smaller than that of a closed fan. Take a look at the below picture!
Both fans are in 0.07 thickness, 4D and 12mm but their base is quite different. The longer and slightly bigger base of the narrow fan allows larger bonding contact area, therefore your work can achieve better retention.
2.2. The use of narrow fan and wide fan
Due to the difference in their appearance, closed fans and open fans have different uses.
The use of Narrow fan
Fans with small openness are great for clients with thick natural eyelashes. With clients having a lot of natural lashes, the tip of the lash fan should not open too large, as this can cause a disheveled look. Since the natural lashes are thick in density, after applied, the fans lash extensions are very close together. Wide fans in this case will make the set look bristly and messy due to their large opening. Fans with the tight opening (narrow fan) will be a better choice to avoid this undesirable result.
Narrow fans is also wanted for the dark line effect. When a lash artist wants to achieve a dark volume result despite fans with little volume (3D, 4D…), tightly fanned lashes can help make the lashes appear intensely black at the top line. With this feature, narrow promade fans is sought after by many lash stylists in the EU where Russian volume is popular.
The use of Wide fan
Fans with wide openness are the go-to fan for clients having a sparse lash line with many gaps. Fans with the tight opening, in this case, can’t cover the space between two lashes therefore making the set look uneven. Wide fans will offer a stunning even lash coverage by filling in the lash gaps.
Wide fans is also an ideal option if your client loves a light and fluffy look or desires a lot of textures. This type of fan is always loved by American and Australian lash artists. 80% of Kwin Lash wholesale customers from Australia and the USA buy wide fan to resell. A small part of them sell both type of fans to provide more options for their customers.
