Eyelash Extensions Do’s and Don’ts!
Updated: Mar 16, 2022
If you're ready to get eyelash extensions then take a moment are read below as we've broken down exactly how you should prep for your appointment and take care of your extensions after the treatment!
Prior to Your Appointment
If you have extremely fair eyelashes we recommend you have them tinted before your eyelash extension appointment
Please remove any mascara prior to the appointment otherwise it will take time away from your extension appointment
Do not perm or curl your eyelashes before your extension appointment as it'll make it diffucult for us to arrange the extensions
If you wear contact lenses please bring your contact lens case as your lenses will need to be removed
After Your Appointment
Allow 24-hours drying time before getting lashes wet
Be gentle with your new extensions – The golden rule is: look but don’t touch.Clean lashes to remove any makeup or oil build up – use cotton swabs to remove make up by working gently around your eyelashes.
Brush lashes daily with provided spoolie and refrain from picking.
Use a serum to hydrate and keep your lashes looking healthy and strong.
Avoid wearing mascara since this will lessen the life of your extensions, if you must wear mascara, only use water-based mascara, please do not use waterproof or oil-based mascara as removing this is difficult to do without damaging your natural eyelashes.
Book regular touch-ups every 2-3 weeks to keep lash volume.
Avoid swimming, steam rooms, saunas, or extreme heat for 48 hours after application.
When drying your face do not rub instead blot your face and apply gentle.
Refrain from drying with a towel or a blow dryer – it's best to allow the extensions to dry naturally.
Do not use eye make-up remover that contains oil as it will effect the adhesive.
Do not use an eyelash curler on the lash extensions or try to perm or tint them, this will break the bond on the extensions and might damage your natural lashes.
Avoid sleeping face down to prevent pressing against your extensions.
Do not pull on any loose extensions or you RISK plucking out your natural eyelashes.
Do NOT attempt to remove the lash extensions yourself; allow the extensions to fall off naturally or schedule an appointment to have them professionally removed.
