CHOOSING A SET FOR YOU?
ARE YOUR LASHES CAUSING PAIN?
If you've ever had lash extensions before that feel like they are pulling at your skin, or sore spots along your lid line it's more likely because the stylist has attached extensions to your skin instead of your natural lash and leaving a .5 millimetre gap between the natural lash and skin.
Equally as bad, they have glued multiple extensions to multiple natural lashes which can result in severe damage lashes. This is because each natural lash grows at a different rate so when there is an extension that is attached to several lashes it can literally rip your natural lashes out as they grow!
This all will require removal to save your lashes from growing back funny or not at all! This is done correctly with the right product to cause no damage to your natural lashes.
Step 1- 2 hours after the appointment it is safe to wet lashes & wash them
Step 2- Wet your lashes down gently with water
Step 3- Apply one squeeze of lash cleanser the size of your small fingernail onto your hand.
Step 4- Gently rub onto your eyelid in a circular motion and gently lather the cleanser up on the eyelid.
Step 5- Gently using one finger, wipe the lathered cleanser downward onto the lash extensions a few times per eye.
Step 6- (Drying Classic Lashes) using a towel extremely gently come in & press down with the lashes & hold to dry, then remove slowly. If done fast the towel can grab like velcro to the extensions
Step 6- (Drying Hybrid & Volume Lashes) Use a blow dryer on a cold setting at arm's length away from your lashes. Moving blow dryer side to side keeping arm's length away, until dry. This keeps your volume fans nice and fluffy & open if not blow-dried regularly can cause your fans to close up slowly over time.
HOW TO WASH YOUR LASHES!
WHEN IS BEST TO GET YOUR LASHES REFILLED?
A lash fill begins by removing any overgrown or twisted eyelash extensions followed by replacing and applying new extensions to give your lash line a full and refreshed finished look. Recommend getting a lash fill done every two weeks 3 weeks at the latest.
Everyone's eyelashes can be so different with growth cycle (slower/faster) & health of lashes.
Having different eyelash goals and therefore require different levels and kinds of maintenance.
Our girls keep documents using our digital client book on every client and their experience & lash looks/length so we can always work out what’s best for every individual client. Having a strong and open sense of communication with your lash technician is so important.
DID YOU KNOW LASHES SHED?
The average person has between 90 to 120 natural lashes per upper eyelid, some more or less. You are aiming to place an extension on all possible lashes during your entire set or fill the appointment. Each eye will naturally shed 3 to 5, sometimes more times less, depending on the health of your lash, diet and everyday activities.
For people with a normal lash growth cycle.
Some of us with faster hair growth or oily hair may lose more each week.
Crying & hay fever will cause your lashes to slip off faster than usual!
IT IS NORMAL FOR LASHES TO SHED!
If you see one natural lash attached to your extension, this is entirely normal, as your natural lashes shed with your natural lash cycle. That is why a refill is needed every two weeks to keep neat & grown lashes replaced. Don't be alarmed if this happens whilst wearing extensions. You only have to be worried if there is more than one natural lash attached, that poor/messy isolation & application which WILL cause damage.
