There’s been a lot of discussion about pre-made fans in the lashing world lately, and for good reason. Below, we offer our insights into which type of pre-made fans work best for client use, which ones don’t, and why.
There are two kinds of pre-made fans:
What’s the difference? The glue-bonded is a fan held together through the use of adhesive. Heat-bonded means the fan is sealed together at the bottom only using heat.
Why NOT to Use Glue Bonded
Many lash stylists believe that this first type of pre-made fan, with the glue, is NOT recommended for client use — and this is true! The quality of the fanned lashes themselves may not be detrimental to the client’s eyes, but the glue used to hold the fan together adds extra unnecessary weight to the natural lashes. For these types of pre-made fans, the stylist needs to add additional adhesive to the fan for it to adhere properly to the client lash. This creates a “chunk” of adhesive that looks bumpy.
The fans then become much heavier than necessary, and as a result may cause damage from the heaviness of the additional weight of the accumulated glue and lash weight.
The Benefits of Heat-Bonded Pre-Made Fans
The second type of pre-made fans, which are heat-bonded, are a great safe alternative to glued fans! Galash Pre-made Volume Fans uses a special heating method that keeps the lashes in the fan shape without the use of glue or anything else that can make them heavier. Heat-bonded pre-made fans can help lash artists of all skill and experience levels add depth, length, drama and curl to a client’s natural lashes — all without the bulk of additional adhesive.
Well-made pre-made fans are easily removable from their tray, and have just as great retention as their individual lash counterparts when paired with a suitable adhesive. This is why you’ll notice that when you pick them from the tray, the ends may separate in your tweezers, just as though you made them by hand. These pre-made fans are just as safe as volume fans made by hand, which is why we only offer this style.

Pre-Made Fans Aren’t Here To Compete With Handmade Fans!
Many lash stylists understandably bemoan the use of pre-made fans, as they have devoted thousands of hours and dollars toward perfecting the craft of creating volume fans by hand. However, lash artists should rest assured that pre-made fans are not meant to replace or compete with these styles in any way. For lash stylists who are only just starting out on their volume lash journey, pre-made fans are an excellent way to bridge the gap between classic and handmade volume. Handmade fans are still a unique way for volume artists to go the extra mile in customizing clients’ needs, especially in terms of the number and length of extensions.
Save Time During Lashing Sessions With Pre-Mades
Pre-made fans are a great way for lash stylists to save time when crafting their clients’ unique look. This is because a full volume set created with pre-made lashes takes approximately the same amount of time as a full set of classic lashes. If your client is running late and you are able to do so, you may even do a volume set with a mix of both hand- and pre-made fans.
