Lash extensions are individual false lashes applied to your natural lashes using the eye open technique. To enhance the length, volume and colour of your natural lashes . This utilizes a sensitive lash extension glue to minimize irritation to the eye, and to ensure that no damage is done to the natural lashes if picking/fiddling was to occur with the natural lash. The Mink(very light weight synthetic) lash extensions are applied individually to your natural lashes, giving them an extra boost of length and volume. Each set is tailored to suit the clients natural lashes, this avoids over burdening the natural lashes. The set can be applied to look very natural or quite dramatic, all depending on the structure of the natural lashes and with consultation between the client and the therapist. Lash extensions will last up to two weeks before needing to be infilled, this depends on the style of lash extensions, and how well the client looks after and maintains the lashes.
The Lash Commandments
Make sure your lashes are clean with no product residue. If possible avoid applying mascara the day before your Lash Extension application.
Do not apply mascara on the day of you Lash Extension application
If you wish to have your natural lashes tinted, please do that at least the day before your Lash Extension application.
Please do not fiddle or play with your Lash Extensions, this is most important in the first few hours as it can disturb the adhesive as it is drying, this can result in the lashes clumping together and/or not lasting as long as the could have.
Avoid getting your Lash Extensions wet/ submersing them in water for the first 24 hours. This is to give the adhesive time to fully dry and make a strong bond between the Lash Extension and your natural face. It is recommended to avoid swimming in the first 24 hours and to wash your face with a face cloth avoiding the eye area.
There should be no need to wear mascara on your Lash Extensions, the use of mascara on the Lash Extensions can result in them as long as they could have.
To clean eye makeup away use a non oil based eye makeup remover and be very gentle, using a cotton bud is good to get product off your eye lid without damaging or putting stress on your Lash Extensions.
NOTE: Lash Extensions will last for 1-2 weeks before needing an infill to replace any lost lashes, This differs person to person depending on how well the Lash Extensions are looked after. If you choose to not upkeep the Lash Extensions they will last up to 2-4 weeks, before they have all been shed. Each set of Lash Extensions is tailored specifically to the client. This is also dependent on your natural lashes, there are limits to how much a individual natural lash can hold weight wise and how many natural lashes a person has. If the natural lashes and fine and/or sparse it may not be possible to apply a very dramatic set to enhance the lashes as it can result in breakage of the natural lash, can be uncomfortable to wear, or can cause clumping of the extensions.
