Today, I want to dive into something really important: skin stretching when performing the machine hair stroke procedure. It might seem minor, but mastering this technique can dramatically improve our outcomes. That’s why I’ve created a detailed video tutorial to help make this process clear and manageable for everyone.

The Importance of Correct Skin Stretching

Proper skin stretching is critical. If it’s not done correctly, the hair strokes might not lay right, and the color could end up looking patchy. That can disappoint our clients, and we definitely don’t want that! In my tutorial, I focus on how to stretch the skin just enough to ensure each hair stroke is precise and beautifully integrated.

In the tutorial, I start with the tail of the eyebrow because it’s a great spot to practice without risking the entire brow design. You’ll learn to stretch just the specific area you’re working on, keeping the rest of your layout intact.

As we move through different parts of the brow, I’ll show you where to place your fingers to maintain an ideal stretch for precise work. It’s all about maintaining the right tension in the skin for optimal results.

Handy Tips for Daily Procedures

I also share practical tips like using cotton pads to protect areas you’ve already completed from any accidental smudges. Plus, I explain how to align your stretching technique with the direction of the hair strokes, ensuring each line is neat and intentional.

Advanced Techniques for Flawless Results

Tackling challenging areas like the front of the brow or creating curves requires a bit more finesse. I demonstrate how to adjust your hand and even slightly reposition the client’s head to achieve the perfect stretch. These advanced tips will boost your confidence and ability to handle any situation smoothly.
