DETAILED DESCRIPTION

[0021] The present invention relates to eyelash extension tray and, more particularly, to a tray for holding eyelash extensions where at least a portion of the tray has a concave shape. The following description is presented to enable one of ordinary skill in the art to make and use the invention and to incorporate it in the context of particular applications. Various modifications, as well as a variety of uses in different applications will be readily apparent to those skilled in the art, and the general principles defined herein may be applied to a wide range of embodiments Thus, the present invention is not intended to be limited to the embodiments presented, but is to be accorded the widest scope consistent with the principles and novel features disclosed herein.

[0022] In the following detailed description, numerous specific details are set forth in order to provide a more thorough understanding of the present invention. However, it will be apparent to one skilled in the art that the present invention may be practiced without necessarily being limited to these specific details. In other instances, well-known structures and devices are shown in block diagram form, rather than in detail, in order to avoid obscuring the present invention.

[0023] The reader's attention is directed to all papers and documents which are filed concurrently with this specification and which are open to public inspection with this specification, and the contents of all such papers and documents are incorporated herein by reference. All the features disclosed in this specification, (including any accompanying claims, abstract, and drawings) may be replaced by alternative features serving the same, equivalent or similar purpose, unless expressly stated otherwise. Thus, unless expressly stated otherwise, each feature disclosed is one example only of a generic series of equivalent or similar features.

[0024] Furthermore, any element in a claim that does not explicitly state "means for" performing a specified function, or "step for" performing a specific function, is not to be interpreted as a "means" or "step" clause as specified in 35 U.S.C. Section 112, Paragraph 6. In particular, the use of "step of" or "act of" in the claims herein is not intended to invoke the provisions of 35 U.S.C. 112, Paragraph 6.

Instead, they are used to reflect relative locations and/or directions between various portions of an object.

[0026] (1) Description

[0027] As shown in FIGS. 1 through 10, the present invention relates to eyelash extension tray and, more particularly, to a tray for holding eyelash extensions where at least a portion of the tray has a concave shape. The tray can be made of any material and formed in any shape to hold a plurality of eyelash extensions, provided that a portion of the tray has a concave shape (surface). For example, the board can have a concave portion along, or a concave portion and a convex portion, or a concave portion and a flat portion, or any other combination as desired. The eyelash extensions are typically adhered (using tape, glue, etc.) to the tray and used by an eyelash technician. They can be adhered to the tray individually (as individual lashes) or on a strip as are commonly referred to as eyelash strips, or any combination thereof. The eyelash technician would then use tweezers (or fingers, etc.) to grasp one or more eyelash extensions and retrieve the eyelash extensions from the tray prior to applying the eyelash extensions directly to the subject's face, eyelid, or natural lashes.

[0028] An advantage to having a concave portion is that the tips of lashes do not flare out such as would occur on a convex shape) and, instead, get pressed together. For users who use "volume lashes", this assists the technician or user to pick up the volume lashes together since the tips press toward one another.

[0029] The tray can also be smooth or, in another aspect not smooth. As a non-limiting example, the tray can be formed to have holes, lines, pumps, etc. so that it is not smooth.

[0030] These aspects are depicted further in the FIGS. 1 through 10.
