Client Prep for Application of Eyelash Extensions:
Do not wash eyes, swim, shower for 24 hours to allow adequate bonding time for the lashes.
Be gentle with your lashes
Do not use a mechanical eyelash curler
Avoid oil based cosmetic products around the eye. This will dissolve the adhesive
Do not use oil based mascara, if you must use mascara especially designed for your lashes
Use only water-based facial cleansers.
USE ONLY EYELASH EXTENSION EYE MAKEUP REMOVER. Remember to be gentle with your lashes while removing eye make up
Do not visit saunas or steam rooms frequently. Routine exposure to heat may cause the bond to loosen.
DAILY TIPS: the most common cause of lash extensions falling out before the end of your natural lash cycle includes excessive touching, use of oil based products, layering on excessive amounts of mascara which requires excessive cleansing, and frequent exposure to heat sources such as spas, saunas and tanning salons.
THE APPLICATION PROCESS IS PAIN-FREE AND RELAXING!
CLIENTS CAN RELAX, REST AND EVEN FALL ASLEEP DURING THE PROCESS.
Client lies comfortably on the beauty bed, ensure the client is warm and offer a blanket.
Tape will be applied to the bottom lashes to keep the lashes out of the way during application.
Client closes the eyes and relaxes.
Eyelash extensions are applied to each individual natural eyelash one at a time, depending on your experiences and the amount of lashes needed.
The application time generally takes between 60 – 90 minutes.
Touch ups can be done in around 45 minutes.
WHY DO YOU RECOMMEND USING DIFFERENT, PROGRESSING LENGTHS OF EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
It’s best for clients to arrive for their lash extension appointment freshly showered, make-up and contact lens free. For best results, it’s important for extensions to remain dry for 48 hours after application. This allows the lash glue to fully adhere. Clients should refrain from swimming, allowing a shower head to blast them right in the face, getting facial treatments, touching or applying any pressure to the lashes for two full days. If lashes do get wet, they should gently be pat dry with light pressure.
WHAT SIZES, TYPES AND LENGTHS ARE AVAILABLE?
On offer is a range of C-Curl lashes which are the shape of a C and J-Curl lashes which are the shape of a J and B – Curl which are slightly curler than a J-Curl
Depending on your clients desired look you will determine which type are best suited.
It is also possible to use a combination of both to achieve a more fuller look on the tips of the lashes.
Sizes of lashes are measured in mm. Sizes range from 7mm – 16mm.
Lashes are also available in varying thickness such as .07, .15 and .20 being the thicker of the two. Again the decision to use either will be determined when assessing the client’s needs during a consultation.
--- DO NOT SWIM OR SPA FOR 2 DAYS AFTER THE PROCEDURE TO ALLOW ADEQUATE BONDING TIME ---
CAN I USE EYELASH CURLERS WITH MY EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
You CANNOT use MECHANICAL eyelash curlers as they can prematurely damage your Eyelash Extensions. Eyelash extensions are created with a beautiful curl, but for those of you who want an extreme curl we recommend using a HEATED EYELASH CURLER.
HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
LASH CLEANSER AND HOME CARE PRODUCTS ARE AVAILABLE TO PRESERVE THE LIFE OF YOUR LASHES.
In order to provide your clients with a natural look and feel.
The shortest lashes should go on the interior corner of the eye, the longest lengths towards the middle, and intermediate lengths towards exterior corner of the eye.
HOW MANY EYELASHES ARE USED FOR EACH APPLICATION?
Determined by the fullness preferred by the client, the length should also be taken into consideration.
Each client will desire a different look. This should be determined in consultation.
Generally the most basic look 40-50 lashes are needed on each eye.
For a full glamorous set you can use 60 or more eyelashes per eye.
