How are these rods like the current Elleebana rods?
- We have stayed with our identifiable rod colour of orange. Not since the days of the old traditional perming rods have we had a rod or shield that wasn’t our identifiable colour of orange we have been deliberate with this choice. The colour is eye catching – and in a world of customers scrolling through social media, you need something that catches their eye. It is also the colour for adventure and social communications. The colour orange radiates warmth and happiness, combining the physical energy and stimulation of red but with the cheerfulness of yellow. The colour psychology of orange is optimistic and uplifting (see what I did there?) and is rejuvenating to our spirit - Just like everything we do at Elleebana. 😊 So many brands chose to move towards having coloured rods or shields after Elleebana shared our message and intent behind out marketing of just how eye catching coloured rods are and we love that we can continue to trailblaze and lead the way in the lash lifting game as we have done so for over two decades.
- They little beauties also have the similar C curl Curvature that offers a voluptuous sexy curl to clients lashes that our current rods offer.
- Storage and cleaning is the same and yes, these too will stain if you tint lashes while they are still wrapped around them.
- Our tree tool sizing guide is still appropriate for sizing up these rods.
So how are the different to our current Elleebana rods?
The physical silicone product is softer, more mouldable and more FLEXible – hence the name. This supple silicone is ultra-soft, comfortable and form-fitting for so many clients eye shapes. They truly assist with the rod placement during the lifting service and what’s more is the new silicone nature now means there is no need to use adhesive on the back of the rod to hold the rod into place (from all of our test, we dare not say EVER because there may be an eye shape we haven’t lifted before 😊).
If a salon has the need to rub to remove make up from the gentle lid area, this sometimes can cause micro cuts or soft abrasions to the eyelid area, and so to then apply adhesive can see some clients comment that the adhesive can be irritative on the skin. Not needing to use adhesive any longer will reduce any discomfort from this step. Clients who also have some aversion to the use of the adhesive on the skin will also find this to be an easier service. This also aids to speed up the application time and most certainly is a game changer for salons using Elleebana.
Also what is different with the new Elleebana flex rods is that there is a rod for each eye. Meaning a Left and a Right side – this is clearly identified by the markings on the outer and inner sides of the rod where it lists the following:
SR R – Small Rod, Right side
SR L– Small Rod, Left side
MR R – Medium Rod, Right side
MR L – Medium Rod, Left side
LR R – Large Rod, Right side
LR L – Large Rod, Left side
XLR R – Extra Large Rod, Right side
XLR L – Extra Large Rod, Left side
