EYELASH EXTENSION - CLASSIC
Classic lashes are the perfect way to enhance natural lashes. With the classic technique, one individual lash is applied to one natural lash to create a set of longer and thicker lashes. Depending on the desired look, there are a variety of curls, lengths, and thicknesses to choose from.
How long does it take to heal? What is the recovery time?
Extensions can last up to six weeks on natural lashes
How often do I need to touch up?
We recommend getting a touch up every 2 to 3 weeks. If you wait too long your eyelash extensions will fall out and you will require a full set. Your natural eyelashes fall off every 45 – 60 days due to the natural growth cycle and are naturally replaced with the growth of a new eyelash.
Who is suited for this procedure?
Eyelash extensions can be for just about anyone. Most people looking for thicker, fuller lashes will probably be perfect candidates.
Who is not a candidate for a eyelash extensions?
Anyone with an allergy to the medical-grade adhesive cyanoacrylate (an industry standard when it comes to the application of eyelash extensions) may not be a candidate for lash extensions
PREPARING FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT
We love nothing more than to give you the most amazing results possible. To be able to do that we need to work together and make sure you are ready for your appointment. Just like an artist needs a blank canvas to begin an art piece, our ARTISTS ask you to follow the restrictions below to ensure your skin is in the best possible condition, so they can create a masterpiece for you in the most optimal conditions so read carefully:
Shower prior to your appointment.
Eliminating any unnecessary contact with water or steam within the first 48 hours will insure that the bond between the semi permanent lashes and your natural lashes has enough time to properly set.
Wear comfortable clothing.
You will lay down for 60 to 90 minutes during your eyelash application, comfortable clothes will allow you to make the most of this time to relax and be pampered.
Remove your contacts.
Your eyes will be closed during the application of your eyelash extensions, to avoid any discomfort, it is always suggested that contacts are removed allowing eyes to be comfortable in a natural and rested state
Do Not Apply Face Creams
Do not apply face creams or sunblock in the eye area. The oil found in many moisturizers prevents eyelash adhesive from bonding to the natural eyelash and reduces the longevity of your eyelash extensions.
Do not Curl Your Lashes
Do not curl your lashes before your appointment. Extensions will not adhere to crimped eyelashes.
Turn off your cellphone just prior to your appointment.
This is truly a time to sit back and relax. ringing cellphones will only interrupt your treatment. enjoy the “me” time, and let your lash transformation begin.
If you currently have lash extensions on from another salon, it is required to book a removal service with your new set on your first visit. This is to avoid the risk of mixing different adhesives and different materials with extensions applied at other salons.
THE HEALING PROCESS
After care is crucial, it is very important to follow these instructions to ensure proper healing. Results will vary for all individuals and we can not guarantee your results.
- Be gentle with your new lashes, refrain from touching or rubbing them. The golden rule is: look but don’t touch.
- Avoid swimming, steam rooms, saunas, or extreme heat for 48 hours after application.
- Maintain your lash extensions with regular touch-up appointments, please schedule in advance as availability can be limited.
- Using mascara on eyelash extensions is not recommended. If you must wear mascara, only use water based mascara.
- Keep an eyelash comb handy to straighten out any loose, stray lashes. Comb them carefully and very gently only when needed.
- Avoid sleeping face down to prevent pressing against your eyelashes.
- Be very careful when removing makeup in the eye area. Gently go over the eye area, sweep up and away from the lash extensions.
Makeup products worn close to the eye will need to be removed prior to the lash application process. coming to your appointment with a clean face will save time and eliminate the need for you lash stylist to remove your eye makeup.
Apply face creams or sunblock to the eye area.
The oils within many moisturizers and sunblock can prevent the eyelash glue from properly adhering to your natural lashes, dramatically reducing the longevity of your eyelash extensions
Lashes must be fresh and clean in order to be properly prepped to receive eye lash extension. no mascara!
Wear large or dangly earrings.
The lash application process requires you to lay with your head propped on a comfortable support pillow. large or dangly earrings can often get in the way making it difficult for you to remain comfortable during the complete application time.
Curl your lashes on the day of your lash application.
We need your eyelashes to be in the most natural and healthy state they can prior to your lash extension application. please do not curl your eyelashes, or use any other manipulation on them the day of your appointment.
MAINTAINING YOUR LASHES
A fresh, full set of eyelash extensions can change your life! You’ll probably find yourself addicted after your first set, so it’s never too early to learn how to look after them.
Avoid getting them wet for up to 48 hours after application.
Do not rub or touch your eyes.
Clean with eyelash foam cleanser every 3 days
Brush through your eyelash tips in the morning
Do not use oil based products around or on the eyes
Do not sleep on your face
Stay on top of your infills (recommended every 2 - 3 weeks)
