As a lash extension specialist, you should be able to work with different types of tweezers so that you will be able to change according to what the customer wants. You should not be so used to one type of tweezers such that if it breaks down or is misplaced, you will postpone the lash application until you find it.
You should, however, not be limited to what others say is the best for them. To another person, curved tweezers will do the trick but if you will be able to work exceptionally with straight tweezers, you should stick to it even as you learn to get used to the other types of tweezers.
You should consider the material that is used in making the tweezers before buying and ensure that it will be easy to clean after every application. You would not want to buy tweezers that will be hard to clean as this will lead to the spread of bacteria from one client to the other which will not be good for your lash extension spa.
