eyelashe extensions

AFTERCARE + RETENTION

I JUST BOUGHT MYSELF SOME PRETTY LASHES.. now what?!

        DAY 1:
      Enjoy them, and let them be! Allow the adhesive to do it's job + completely cure to 100%. Don't fuss about with excessive combing or touching. Wash before bed + again in the morning. You’re not even stressed, because you planned ahead + scheduled your first Infill at the 2 week mark (where you will have at least 50% of your extensions remaining).

 

DAY 2 + ON + ON: 

 

Every single day, cleanse your lashes 1-2X with an extension safe cleanser + soft bristled brush. Rinse, blot dry + softly comb with a mascara spoolie. Loyal lash clients book their Infills months in advance to make sure their self car lash naps are booked around their busy lives. Weddings, birthdays, vacations. Lashes are an accessory that lives with you. They’re easy to fall in love with + can easily fit into most lifestyles with the proper education.

  • Use oil-free makeup remover.

  • Pay special attention to your lash line when removing makeup

  • Gently clean  your lashes with the cleanser, brush, and rinse bottle provided to you at your appointment. Please let me know if you   need a  refill of the cleanser, or if you need to purchase any of these items

  • After cleansing your lashes, gently pat them dry with a VIVA brand paper towel or blow dry them with a blow dryer on a cool setting held at arm's length.  A small, hand-held fan is also a good option for drying your lashes.

  • Brush lashes twice a day with the wand provided to you at your appointment. Do not over brush them, as this can cause them to fall off prematurely.

  • Sleep on your back or on your side with lashes off the pillow.  A special sleeping mask that protects your lashes can be purchased.

  • Schedule regular touch-up appointments (fills) every 2-3 weeks.

  • Don't tan or spray tan 48 - 72 hours after application.

  • Don't use mascara on your lashes.

  • Don't perm curl your lashes.

  • Don't pull or tug on your lashes. 

  • Don't  rub your eyes.

  • Avoid saunas and hot steam (including facials) while wearing extensions.

  • Avoid letting water from your shower head run directly onto your lashes.

  • Do not use eyeliner pencils - use an oil-free felt or pen tip only.        

  • Do not use cotton balls or pads with loose fibers that can catch on your lash extensions.

  • NEVER attempt to remove your lash extensions - they must be professionally removed. If I applied your lash extensions, I will remove them free of charge. If another technician applied your lashes, there is a $35+ fee.
