Classic or also known mink, silk lashes - are applied one by one on your natural lash. A variety of looks can be achieved with individual lash extensions and they are suitable for all ages and styles. To apply full Classic eyelash set takes up to 1h 30 min.
Russian Lashes also known as 2D 3D 4D 5 D 6 D lashes - are fast becoming the most popular eye treatments and are perfect for those that want a fuller, softer look with a certain depth. The lashes are much finer then individual lashes so between 2 to 6 bouquet of lashes are place on one of your natural lashes giving you a fuller more natural finish. I will therefore decide with the client on the volume of lashes we are looking to create. To apply full Russian volume eyelash set takes up to 2h 30 min\ Half set 1h 30 min.
Before the treatment I understand that every woman’s eyes are different so a full consultation before your treatment is essential. It is important to specify what you are aiming for to assess your natural lash condition and choose the best possible option for you.

How long will they last 3 to 5 weeks, depending on your natural lash life-cycle and looking after your lash extensions for example: avoiding oily make-up removers, not using mascara and patting your eyes gently after showering.
When I need to do “infills”? Your natural eyelashes continue to grow in a replenishing cycle. Since the extensions are bonded to your own natural lashes, you may need to refill the areas where your own natural lashes have fallen out. An “infill” is recommended every 2 or 3 weeks and generally the procedure takes 1h - 1h minutes depending on how many lashes have fallen out. Russian volume infills to achieve full set up to 1.30 hours.
How to prepare for lash appointment? I will require a patch test 48 hours before the treatment and if you are not sensitive to the glue than we can arrange the appointment Please attend on time, without no makeup or at least no mascara and do not perm or curl your eyelashes before your eyelash extension appointment, wear if its possible comfy clothes, use bathroom and do not drink coffee and energy drinks 3 hours before treatment. Also if you like come a long with lash look ideas to discuss with me before the treatment.
Do I need a patch test? Besides the client's safety, comfort and well being, patch test is an insurance requirement and I will require a patch test before the treatment 48 hours prior when a new clients calls for the first time. You will be asked to come to my studio and have a small amount of glue behinder your ear & it will take seconds. In the same time we can have short consultation what style of lash extensions to choose from : Russian or Classic style.
After care It is very important to wash lashes 3/4 times weekly with special oil - free foam cleanser. Also it is necessary to avoid oils and oily eye make-up remover as they will loosen the adhesive bond of the extension. Rubbing, scratching and pulling will spoil the effect and will shorten their life.
