How to Prep Your Lashes Before Your Appointment
Time to Take a Lash Nap!
Come with clean lashes. No mascara, or makeup on the eye areas. This will help the health and longevity of your lashes extensions.
Wear comfortable clothes and turn off the phone to relax and enjoy the service.
Remove contacts if it is not long wear. Your eyes will be closed for a long period of time.
Do not put on face creams or sunblock to the eye area. The oils within many moisturizers and sunblock can prevent the eyelash glue from adhering to your natural lashes, dramatically reducing the longevity of your eyelash extensions,
Do not curl your lashes on the day of your lash application. We need your lashes to be in the most natural and healthy state for the application.
Shower and wash your hair before your appointment. You wont be able to get your lashes wet or steamed for 24 hours. Including hot showers and washing your hair. Take baths for 24 hours after your appointment is suggested,
If you want a facial, it should be first and then your lashes.
If you have sensitive eyes and have worries that you may be allergic, make a schedule to come in 72 hours before the lash appointment so that we may put on 3-5 unnoticeable lashes. If you do not have a reaction within 24 hours, then you will be fine.
How to Take Care of Your Lashes After
Be kind to Your Lashes!
Do not get your lashes wet for the 1st 24 hours. No working out, no steam room, no saunas, no long hot steam showers, no crying and no splashing water on your whole face to wash it.
(Suggestions: Get lash googles to shower or just run the bottom part of the tub or take a bath to wash your body. Use makeup wipes or a wash cloth to wash your face avoiding the lashes.)
After 24 hours, Wash your lashes 1-2 times a day. I know you are scared this will make them fall out but this is not true. Clean lashes last longer. Dirt and oil from your face actually breaks down the bond of the lash glue. Plus clean lashes means healthy lashes,
To clean your lashes, use a foam lash shampoo and a soft lash cleaning brush, Thoroughly and carefully wash your lash line then rinse with warm water. Let air dry or blow dry with a blow dryer on low cool setting. After they are dry, use a lash brush to brush them into place. Brush mid to tip so that you do not pull the extension out at the base,
Never wear water proof mascara on the extensions. Water proof is hard to get of the lash making it harder to keep clean causing your lashes to NOT last as long. regular mascara is okay.
When going swimming, wash your lashes every 2 hours. Salt water and chlorine can break down the bond of the glue.
