How long does it take?
The treatment time will depend on the look you like to go for. Full sets can take up to an hour and a half, and infills up to an hour. However, this can vary between each client.
Why do I need infills?
Eyelashes are great for a one-off special occasion or holiday, however infills help keep your lashes looking full all the time and great for everyday use. Due to the natural lash cycle, infills must be done within 3 weeks of the original appointment and it is important that clients show up with at least 40-50% extensions left.
Do I need a patch test?
Yes, a patch test is required for all new clients at least 48 hours before treatment, particularly if you've never had lashes before. This is to check for any allergies to any of the products I use, especially the glue. The patch test takes 5 minutes and involves me placing 2-3 extensions on each eye and also filling out a consultation form to make me aware of any contraindications which could prevent you having eyelash extensions. Although patch tests can never 100% guarantee that you won't react to the treatment, it is always best to have the test. No treatment can go ahead before a patch test.
Can I wear make up?
Make up in general can be applied however mascara and liquid eyeliner should be avoided. This can clump the lashes together and is also very difficult to remove, causing you to rub your eyes whilst removing it which will cause the extensions to fall off, or due to not removing it thoroughly, can be a breeding ground for bacteria, which can lead to eye infections. All make up must be removed using an oil free make up remover.
Will they pull out my natural lashes?
Not at all. I only use high quality products and all lashes are separate and individual. I will never use extensions that are too heavy or thick for your natural lashes therefore they will never damage or cause your lashes to fall out. It is also important you do not pick or pull at your extensions either as this can cause you to pull out premature lashes.
How do I know which set is right for me?
During the consultation/patch test, we will go through all the different styles of lashes and I will ask my clients what sort of look they like to go for, whether this be natural, full, long, short or curled. This also depends on your own natural lashes and what lashes may be best.
