BEFORE ARRIVING TO YOUR APPOINTMENT ALWAYS COME WITH A CLEAN FACE. PLEASE DO NOT COME WITH ANY MAKEUP, EYE MAKEUP, OILS, OR LOTIONS ON YOUR FACE.
IF YOU HAVE DAMAGED LASHES DUE TO PREVIOUS EXTENSIONS OR STRIP LASHES, EYELASH EXTENSIONS CAN BE DAMAGING. FOR THE HEALTH OF YOUR NATURAL LASHES, THE EXTENSION SERVICE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO BE DONE.
IF YOU HAVE PREVIOUS LASHES FROM ANOTHER ARTIST, YOU WILL NEED TO BOOK A REMOVAL BEFORE YOUR SERVICE. I DO NOT DO FOREIGN FILLS.
PLEASE DO NOT SHOW UP MORE THAN 10 MINUTES LATE OTHERWISE YOUR APPOINTMENT MAY BE CANCELED.
TRY BEST TO AVOID CAFFIENE BEFORE APPOINTMENTS.
Life happens, things come up, and sometimes we need to prioritize what's important. However please always try to cancel AT LEAST 24 hours prior to your appointment. Your appointment is a block of time reserved especially for you, and it is often difficult to fill a canceled spot last minute.
Eyelash extensions are not "one size fits all". Everyone's lashes are different and eyelash extensions should be customized to each individual for the correct length and thickness to suit their look and ensure the health of their natural lashes. Not everyone can or should get super long or super thick eyelash extensions! Every client is measured before their service.
A full set of eyelash extensions is not all one length. The shape of your lash line tapers - it's longer in the center and shorter on the outsides and your extensions should be too. Following the design of the natural lashes creates natural-looking extensions!
Natural lashes grow to a finite length (different for each person), fall out and are replaced by new growth, just like the hairs on your head. When eyelash extensions are applied and maintained correctly, they will grow out with your natural lash and still be attached to the lash when it sheds.
Natural lashes are constantly growing in and falling outat different times so your eyelash extensions will too! There is no set amount of time that eyelash extensions will last because they will shed with the natural lash they are attached to when it grows out and that time varies. Due to growth cycles and different stages, the best estimate is that you will shed 1-5 natural lashes per day - including those with extensions and those without. Frequent re-lashes will replace those that have shed to maintain a full look.
You SHOULD be seeing your natural lashes and extensions fall out together. This is normal. If your extensions fall off before the natural lash, the adhesive bond wasn't strong enough or maintenance instructions were not followed correctly.
Naturally, we all shed lashes daily. Many a day, up to four in one day! Your natural lash sheds and is replaced with a new lash. This is (thankfully) why we don't walk around bald! This is totally normal and natural. Don't fret! Let's break it down and do the math. We add in all lash extensions applied minus approximate daily natural loss. That equals what we lash artists see as normal loss at your three-week fill.
One of the most talked about benefits of extensions is not having to wear mascara. Mascara can break down the bonds in the adhesive used for lash extension application. Should you choose to still wear mascara, please make sure to apply it only to the middle of the lash and up to the tip. Make sure it's a water-based mascara. Water should be in first three ingredients. Waterproof mascara is a firm NO. It is too hard to remove and often results in extension removal. Be careful and read labels of mascara so you choose wisely and don't have a mess.
Having overly oily skin can cause problems for lash extensions. Oils in the skin can break down the lash adhesive. I recommend both morning and evening lash cleansing with foaming lash wash. Blotting papers for the eyelid during the daytime can help prevent the buildup of oil on the lash line. Some artists will retail a lash extension sealant coat for aftercare and daily use. Talk to your lash artist if you know this is your skin type and together you can plan your routine. With proper aftercare and regular lash washing, we can keep you wearing extensions.
We all hope our lash artist, who is applying our lashes, is experienced and knows that she is doing. Most are trusted and truly passionate; however, there is still the possibility for error. The artist must control the lash room environment or the adhesive can act out and not bond properly. Sometimes there can be an issue of not enough adhesive being used. Also, the artist could have missed prepping the lash before applying the extensions.
We all have to rub our eyes. We find new ways to do so carefully when wearing eyelash extensions. Be sure not to excessively rub or pick at the extensions. It will loosen the adhesive and cause the extension to fall out. Even worse, excessive picking can lead to the loss of your natural lashes. If your natural lashes are falling out, we may not have a healthy lash to apply the extension to - so do not pick!
Eight years ago, when I wore extensions for the first time, I started training myself to be a back sleeper. We all have different sleeping positions for lash extensions and some are not so ideal. Lash wearers that sleep on their stomach may have issues with poor eyelash extension retention. Although most adhesive is flexible, regular smooshing of your face into a pillow every night can cause extensions to bend, loosen and fall out prematurely.
I know you want to baby your lash extensions; however, if you don't remove dirt, oil or debris, you might end up losing them. Not cleaning your extensions can invite infection or inflammation in the hair follicle. Brushing your extensions is also important. You should brush your lashes with a spoolie in the morning and after showers. Make sure to use gentle strokes when brushing. Also, clean your spoolie when you're done and grab a new one during your fill session.
Using oily skin care products is a big NO! Like oily skin, oily products can break down the adhesive of your extension. Check your labels and look for alternatives should you have a routine in place. We don't want you to be a lizard either!
Thyroid medications, for example, can change the environment of the lash area, making natural lashes oilier, dryer or more brittle. Please be aware that if you are taking these medications, your lashes may respond differently to the extensions. If you take vitamins that encourage or stimulate hair growth, be aware that your lashes shed cycle may speed up. Pregnancy and menopause can change the lash environment as well.
It is recommended that you do not get your new lash extensions wet for at least 24-hours after the initial set because the adhesive is curing. After they have fully dried/cured, you are free to swim and workout as usual. Be aware of your workout schedule and where it falls within your lash schedule. Sweating right after a lash appointment is not recommend. Please wait until the next day.
Not too much to say here, other than it's out of our control and is a real bummer! Up the frequency of your lash fills should you experience unwanted retention issues. Extra hot and humid or dry and extreme cold can cause an issue. Thank goodness you love your lash artist! Some of you may see her just a little bit
In the anagen phase the hair is rooted to the follicle and it is receiving nutrients from your blood which promotes healthy growth. Have you ever tweezed or waxed, then immediately noticed spot bleeding? This is because the hair was pulled out during this active growth phase. Hair pulled out in this phase will often damage the hair follicle and can ultimately result in a dormant follicle that produces no hair. Which is great for unwanted hair in your bikini line, but not for your lashes and brows!
In the catagen phase the hair is no longer growing or receiving nutrients and the follicle begins to collapse.
The last 100 days of the cycle, the hair is in the telogen or resting stage. The hair is detached and ready to be shed. Roughly 10% of all the hairs on your body, including your lashes, are in the telogen phase. On average you will loose up to 100 hairs and 3-5 lashes per day. Once the hair sheds, the cycle starts again. This entire cycle for all the hair on your body takes between 3 and 5 years.
"Usually I can go 3-4 weeks, but I'm barely making it two weeks between fills!"
You may be asking yourself or your lash artist the very same question, "What's going on?"
Welcome to the Fall Shed ladies and gents. That's right, it's that dreaded time of the year that lash artists and clients alike fear. Newer lash artists who may be unaware of Fall Shed begin questioning their skills and clients begin questioning if they're doing something wrong. Good news is, it's not you and it's not your lash artist. All humans experience this season of increased hair shedding. But why? To understand Fall Shed, you must first understand how your hair grows. (referring back to the 3 phases of hair growth)
No one really knows...
Disappointing isn't it.
We do have some hints though. Swedish scientists examining this phenomenon suggest that,
"Women grow more hair during summer months to protect their scalps from hot sun and ultraviolet radiation. Come autumn, this additional growth is no longer required and is therefore shed."
Is brow lamination like a lash lift for your brows?
It lifts the hair from the roots, which is why they call it a brushed up brow - brushed up is just exactly what it says on the tin.
Is it bad for your brows?
No, it's like getting a perm in your hair. With a perm in your hair, you wouldn't keep on doing it all of the time, you need to watch your aftercare. Your aftercare is really important, and you need to rehydrate your brows constantly, as with anything that's been chemically enhanced, you need to mind them more afterwards.
How do I take care of my brows after having them laminated?
After 48 hours, I recommend every night putting some castor oil on and that's just going to strengthen the hairs. I have a brow cleanser which basically just a microfiber pad that's reusable. Our brows are so delicate. It's like a scalp on your eyebrow. We are so conscious of looking after our hair and not our brows. People get eczema in just their brows, people get dermatitis in just their brows, but nobody treats it. Nobody exfoliates them, nobody hydrates them. Castor oil is going to help strengthen them.
Can anybody get brow lamination done?
I don't recommend it for anybody that has dermatitis or eczema. I don't recommend it for people that have spacing underneath their brows that they might use some other hairs to cover, because the hair is brushed right up so you can see the whole underline.
How long does the treatment take?
It takes about an hour but for some people, it can only take 40 minutes. When it's done, they look a little bit flattened down, then after 24 hours, they are fine.
How long does brow lamination last?
Six to eight weeks, but it depends on your aftercare. It's going to be individual to each face, depending on your lifestyle, like if you're a swimmer or use strong brow products.
How do you take care of your brows to get the longest out of brow lamination?
The first 24 hours are the most important, so you are not going to get your brows wet in the first 24 hours and you should sleep face up. Remember they are fixed into position, so if you lie on your side and a few hairs bend, they could stick like that. Just leave them alone and let them do their own thing for the first 24 hours and then you're going to cleanse them and brush them up. Then after 48 hours, you're going to make sure that you are popping some oil in them to rehydrate them. Take brow product off at night time and just be more gentle with them.
What products can I use when I've had my brows done?
I recommend a clear gel that doesn't necessarily have much holding power. We don't want them to be brittle because we want to keep the hydration.
What is a Lash Lift?
"A lash lift curls your lash from base to tip so that you can see the full length," explains Clementina
Richardson, celebrity lash expert and founder of Envious Lashes in New York City. All lashes have a
natural shape to them, so this process alters that shape via a tiny curling rod and a lifting solution. (It's
not as scary as it sounds, as your eyes are closed as it's applied but yes, there are some chemicals
involved.) The treatment should always be performed by a licensed professional.
How Long Does a Lash Lift Last?
The results typically last four to eight weeks, depending on how quickly your eyelashes grow. You should
avoid mascara for 48 hours after the treatment and leave lashes untouched for a full day. "No makeup, or
water should come in contact with your lashes for 24 hours to ensure the lift correctly sets into shape.
Then, you can fully enjoy the treatment's results,"
Do Lash Lifts Work on Any Lash Length and Color?
Lashes can be long or short, but must be at least a 4mm to get the service, according to Richardson, who
also recommends getting a lash tint along with a lift. "It will lift and darken your natural lashes and create
a balanced effortless look for the client who wants a natural 'woke up like this' appearance," she says.
This procedure requires very little maintenance and is perfect for anyone that doesn't have time for
Regular upkeep. However, there is a little extra care required over the first 24-48 hours.
Do not get your lashes wet for the first 24 hours. Swimming should also be avoided at this time.
Allow 24 hours before applying any product to your lashes. After 24 hours you man apply regular mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow, or any type of makeup products you desire; it will not affect the lashes. However, NO WATEROROOF MASCARAS.
Do not touch or rub your eyes or eyelashes immediately after the treatment. If redness or irritation
occurs apply a cool damp cotton compress to the eye area. If symptoms persist for more than 24 hours seek medical advice. Do not sleep on your face.
Avoid hot water or steam on the face or near the eyes.
Day 3 & continuously:
Please refrain from all attempts to rub the eye or lashes. Do not use oil-based products or any
conditioning treatments/serums on the lashes. This will cause the semi-permanent mascara to dissolve
faster. Effects of the tint will start to diminish within 2-3 weeks as hair will grow out and the tint color
fades. Strong sunlight/UV light can make the tint color fade faster - Use gentle facial cleanser or eye
makeup remover and avoid exfoliating cleanser or those products containing AHA's and oil. Do not
attempt to pickoff the mascara, let your technician safely and gently remove the coating before your next application is applied.
