Choosing the right eyelash extensions for you.
Semi Permanent Eyelash extensions are a revolutionary eyelash treatment which transforms your lashes into longer, thicker, curlier natural looking lashes. Not to be confused with the traditional false eyelashes which are typically made with a strip or with multiple lashes knotted together these lash extensions are applied with a strong lash glue to the lash only. Neither the extension lash or glue touches the skin or eyelid. The bond is designed to last until the natural lash has finished its cycle and both the natural lash and extension will fall out together. Although if one uses oil based products on the lashes or rubs their eyes regularly the extensions may fall out faster.
Choose either a glamorous voluminous look for those special occasions or go for a natural everyday look. Wake up everyday looking gorgeous. No more clumping, smudging and hassle of applying mascara with these crème de la crème lash enhancements which can last for months with regular 2-4 week infills (maintenance). Without infills you can expect them to last up to 6 weeks - they will slowly thin with your lash cycle - eventually you will have just your natural lashes left - as they were before extensions, no thinning or damage to your natural lashes.

light volume set - (Upper Lashes only) Creating a more subtle and natural look, lash extensions made up of 3/4 D fans are scattered generously throughout your lashes, giving you a beautiful curl and length. (Half sets are not recommended for those with fair or sparse lashes) If you have fair lashes but want only a half set it is recommended to get a lash tint at least 24 hours before lash extensions to help even out the natural lash colour. infills are needed every 2-3 weeks on this set.
Full russian Lash Set - (Upper lashes only) For a beautiful look almost every visible lash has an extension made up of 5/6D fans attached. This is the most recommended and popular choice by my clients. infills are needed every 3-4 weeks on this set.

Any questions or queries don’t hesitate to ask.
BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT
Please arrive without any eye makeup. This will minimize the clean-up time and allow more time for applying the extensions.
If you usually wear contact lenses please bring glasses to your appointment as contact lenses cannot be worn during the application of eyelash extensions.
You will need to keep your lashes dry for 24 hours after the application so it's a good idea to have your hair washed the day of or night before.
Do not perm or curl your eyelashes before your eyelash extension appointment. Please note: If you have recently had your eyelashes permed (or lifted with a lash lift) eyelash extensions cannot be applied until 2 months after the perming procedure.
THE FIRST 24 HOURS
AVOID getting lashes wet as extensions and glue need to cure
AVOID hot steam from the shower and sauna
AVOID touching, or brushing the lashes
AVOID using eye make-up
AFTER 24 HOURS
AVOID the use of oil based make-up removers, cleansers or creams. (The oil in these products will loosen the bonding adhesive) Use plain water or water-based cleansers, make-up removers or creams. Using a cotton bud will help to gently remove any eye make-up
Be GENTLE. AVOID picking, rubbing, touching your eyes excessively
REFRAIN from using heated curlers, lash perms, tinting lashes or normal mascaras
AVOID rubbing your eyes, sleeping on the lashes, or facing the shower head when in the shower
DO NOT attempt to remove the extensions. Removal should be done by a qualified lash technician. DO NOT pull on loose lashes as this may cause lash loss and may cause damage to your natural lash.
WASHING the lashes is essential in keeping your own natural lashes and eyelids in good condition.
BRUSH your lashes with the brush provided by the Lash Extension Artist. It is not necessary to brush them every day only as and when needed to prolong the lash extensions.
- Leave the lashes alone – the more you tamper with them, the more the bond will weaken and may fall off
SCHEDULE AN INFILL – every 2-3 weeks. Within a few weeks you will notice a slight loss in lashes. This is the natural part of the lash cycle. Touch ups/ infills are highly recommended if you would like to maintain a full, lush lash line. 40% of extensions will be needed to qualify for a infill anything less will be a fresh set.
