The Procedure & Aftercare
After the initial consultation establishing what shape and type of look is right for you, it’s time to relax and let the professional artist begin.
Your eyes and lashes need to be free of make-up. I will also clean the lashes to make sure they are free of any protein or oil. This is to ensure the lash extensions bond correctly to the host lash.
I will then place small white pads under each eye which are placed over the lower lashes to keep them out of the way. Your eyes are then kept closed for the duration of the procedure.
Using tweezers, I will use the pads as a work area by separating out the individual lash that is going to receive the extension. The extension lash is then placed onto the host lash with a specially formulated bonding agent.
The application takes approximately 1 ¼ to 1 ½ hours and anywhere between 50 to 150 lashes on each eye depending on the size and shape of your eyes, together with the look you want to achieve.
Once all of the lashes have been applied there is usually about a 5 – 10 minute wait for the bonding to dry. Voila, beautiful new lashes!
