833-TWEEZER     PO BOX 20100, Long Beach, CA 90801

 

Tweezers are small tools used for picking up objects too small to be easily handled with the human fingers. The tool is most likely derived from tongs, pincers, or scissors-like pliers used to grab or hold hot objects since the dawn of recorded history.

 

 

Tweezers come in a variety of tip shapes and sizes. Blunt tip tweezers have a rounded end which can be used when a pointed object may get entangled, when manipulating cotton swabs, for example. Flat tip tweezers, pictured at right, have an angled tip which may be used for removing splinters. Some tweezers have a long needle-like tip which may be useful for reaching into small crevices. Triangular tip tweezers have larger, wider tips useful for gripping larger objects. Tweezers with curved tips also exist, sometimes called bent forceps.

 

 

 

 

What tweezers are best for eyelash extensions?
 

I Shape: Straight tweezers AKA I-shape tweezers are ideal for isolation and for classic lash extension method. We recommend using the thin and long I shape tweezers for isolation. The thicker and shorter type I shape tweezers are great for the classic lash extension.


 

 

What are thin tweezers for?
 

Point tip tweezers feature a fine, thin tip that is great for removing splinters and ingrown hair. The tips can slide under the top layer of your skin to grasp the trapped object and pull it out. Point tips are also popular for precision tweezing because their thin tips can isolate a single hair in a large area.
