Client education is SO important to us. Yes, this is lengthy but we don't cut corners around here!
Lash extensions are individual semi-permanent, synthetic eyelashes that come in different lengths, thicknesses, curls, and styles. They are highly customizable based on the desired outcome (natural vs. dramatic.)
Each individual extension is adhered with lash extension adhesive to each individual natural eyelash. The adhesive's main ingredient is cyanoacrylate, which is an acrylic resin. We only use high-grade, formaldehyde free, low/no-fume adhesive.
Each eyelash extension sheds with your natural eyelash. On average, you shed 2-5 natural lashes per eye, per day. This is why fill appointments are necessary in order to maintain your lash extensions. This is similar to getting acrylic nails. You first get a full set, then you maintain with fills. Depending on proper aftercare and the natural lash growth cycle, you can go 2-3 weeks between fills depending on the type of set chosen. (See below for information on classic, hybrid, and volume sets.) You should have about 50% of your natural lashes remaining by the time you come in for your fill. Even if you have more lashes than that, they will have grown out and need removed and replaced so they are not hanging down. Due to this, you still need a fill even with great retention.
We take pride in proper application and client education on different lash extension types/aftercare. Proper isolation and placement are key to maintaining healthy natural lashes. Lash extensions are NON-DAMAGING *if* applied properly and aftercare is followed at home. Unfortunately, many people come to us with damaged natural lashes from poor application elsewhere. We take steps to educate the client on "natural lash rehab" so that they can once again enjoy their lash extensions without worrying about damage to the natural lashes. LASH EXTENSIONS COME IN A VARIETY OF WEIGHTS. WE WILL ONLY APPLY LASH EXTENSIONS THAT EACH SPECIFIC CLIENT'S NATURAL LASHES CAN HANDLE WITHOUT BECOMING DAMAGED. LASH EXTENSIONS ARE NOT A "ONE SIZE FITS ALL" SERVICE.
We want to ensure that you leave knowing how to take proper care of your beautiful lash extensions and how to get the best retention between fills. Each lash artist goes over aftercare with each new client and answers any and all questions. Aftercare is easy and you will LOVE the convenience of cutting your morning routine down.
Lash extensions are 100% waterproof AFTER 24 hours from application. When you leave your appointment, your lash extensions and the adhesive will be completely dry but will need 24 hours to cure. Wash your face with a washcloth around your eyes to cleanse your face in the first 24 hours and do not purposely submerge, go in a sauna or sweat excessively.
NO MASCARA is needed. Lash extensions are already black and mascara will just clump them together and make them prematurely fall out.
Wash your lashes daily with our foaming Lash Shampoo (available at your appointment for only $28 + tax.) Lash shampoo gets rid of any natural oil, dirt, makeup, etc. Clean lashes = healthy lashes! It is important to shampoo your lashes with lash shampoo formulated for extensions so that it doesn't break down the adhesive. Not washing your lashes is similar to not washing your hair or not brushing your teeth...yuck! Oil/makeup will build up causing your lash extensions to fall out prematurely. "Regular" soap, baby shampoo, etc will simply break down the adhesive which is why lash shampoo is KEY. We cannot stress the importance of this enough! The lash shampoo can also act as a makeup remover which makes it useful even if you no longer have extensions but still have lash shampoo left.
Oil-free makeup remover and oil-free liquid eyeliner only! We have lash extension eyeliner available for retail at your appointment. It is manufactured by the same company that we purchase our lash adhesive from so they work well together! Simply lash shampoo the eyeliner out at the end of your day!
Do NOT pull/tug on your lash extensions. This will cause damage to your natural lash. If you need a removal, please schedule a professional removal with us to ensure you keep your healthy natural lashes! It is quick and painless!
AT THIS TIME WE ARE UNABLE TO FILL OUTSIDE WORK. THIS MEANS THAT IF YOUR LASH EXTENSIONS WERE NOT DONE AT THE BEAUTY SOCIETY, PLEASE BOOK AN *OUTSIDE REMOVAL AND NEW FULL SET*. WE DO NOT KNOW PRODUCTS, TECHNIQUES, AND LASHES THAT OTHER LASH ARTISTS USE. AT THE BEAUTY SOCIETY WE STRIVE TO MAKE OUR WORK SEAMLESS AND SMOOTH. WE ALL WORK DIFFERENTLY AS LASH ARTISTS, SO IT IS DIFFICULT TO ACHIEVE SEAMLESS, SMOOTH LASHES WHEN FILLING OUTSIDE WORK. EACH STUDIO EXPRESSES OUR LASHES/ART DIFFERENTLY MUCH LIKE EACH ARTIST WHOSE TOOLS ARE PAINT AND CANVAS. WE CANNOT GIVE OUR PERSONAL BEST OR GUARANTEE OUR WORK WHILE TRYING TO WORK OVER SOMEONE ELSE'S ART. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING AND PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING THIS POLICY. WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.
