Eyelash Extensions ~
Eyelash extensions are great if you want to have longer eyelashes and either an eyelash tint or LvL lashes aren’t enough for you.
During your initial eyelash extensions full set we will apply lashes to each of your natural lashes individually, being careful not to glue any together. This process can take between 90-120 minutes depending on the technique you opt for.
Once you have your beautiful new set of lashes you will need to visit the salon every 2-3 weeks for maintenance. During this treatment we will carefully remove and outgrown lashes that may be dropping down or twisted. We will then reapply lashes to all new lashes and make them all full and fluffy again.
We do ask that you clean your lashes on a regular basis, this stops the lashes from building up oil on the lashes which will affect the retention. We require you to have a removal and full set of lashes every 3-4 months. This ensures we are keeping your lashes healthy.
You will need a patch test if you haven’t had this treatment before with us in the salon or you haven’t been in for this treatment for the last 12 weeks. Patch test needs to be on for 48 hours prior to your appointment as it can take more than 24 hours for some to have a reaction.
Classic Eyelashes are individual false lashes placed onto each individually isolated natural lashes. This treatment is great for someone who has a lot of lashes and wants to be able to get up and go in the morning and not worry about wearing mascara. There is a choice of thickness, length and curl to suit the look you want to achieve and will be discussed in your consultation. A new set is recommended every 3-4 months to maintain the health of your natural lashes.
Hybrid eyelash extensions are a mix between classic and volume eyelashes, We still apply lashes to every lash but instead of all individual eyelashes or fans of lashes there is a mixture of both. This is great if you want a fuller look than the classic but still natural looking. Like all lashes we recommend maintenance every 2-3 weeks and a fresh set reapplied every 3-4 months to maintain the health of your natural lashes.
Volume eyelash extensions are handmade fans. Each handmade fan is attached to each individually isolated natural lash. If you wanted a more dramatic look than the classic lash extensions then this is the treatment for you. There is a choice of thickness, length and curl to suit the look you want to achieve and will be discussed in your consultation. A new set is recommended every 3-4 months to maintain the health of your natural lashes.
NYC Wispy lashes are a new style of lash to give you a fluffier look with extra spikes to break the harsh line regular volume lash treatments can create. Once the talker spikier lashes have been applied the rest of the lashes are filled with Russian volume lash fans to finish the look. Like all lashes we recommend maintenance every 2-3 weeks and a fresh set reapplied every 3-4 months to maintain the health of your natural lashes.
Eyelash Extension Maintenance
Once you have had your beautiful new set of eyelash extensions you will need to come back to the salon for maintenance. Your natural lashes will shed and take the extension with them. During a maintenance appointment we will attach new extensions to the new lashes that have grown to replace the lashes that have fallen out. We can loose between 3-5 lashes each day so regular maintenance is essential to keeping your lashes looking lovely and full.
Eyelash Extension After Care ~
You will need to keep your new lashes completely dry for the first 48 hours. This includes coming into contact with heat and steam. If you do allow your lashes to come into contact with water, heat or steam you will find your lashes one last as long.
We require you to brush your lashes every morning and evening. You will lose lashes as your natural lashes shed. We can not guess which lashes are due to come out so don’t be alarmed if they come out quickly. You can lose on average up to 5 lashes a day and this is why we aim to cover all lashes with a full set and why it is vital to come in for maintenance regularly.
We ask that you clean your lashes on a regular basis if you are wearing makeup daily then every evening if you aren’t you could do this every other day. This helps to keep the natural oils off of your lashes which helps with retention.
Avoid oil based products at all costs. Oil will break down the bonds in the glue which will mean your lash extension will fall off the natural lash.
If you are unable to attend your lash maintenance appointment and it has been 4 weeks since your last appointment you will need a full set. As well as the natural shedding of your lashes the glue we use gives an average hold of 4 weeks so although you may have a lot of lashes still left on at this time it’s likely they will start to fall off soon after.
