Eyelash Technician

"Training, Passion & Commitment to each customer provides great eyelash extensions"

 

Lash Extensions Free Consultation

Unless you are absolutely certain of what type of eyelash extension you would like, we will provide you with advice and guidance would what suit you best.

Taking in to consideration any concerns you may have surrounding your natural eyelashes, the best treatment can be dependent on how many natural eyelashes you have and the desired result and look you are aspiring to.

Each Person Is Different When Eye Lashing

One thing that is certain is that every customer we see for eyelash consultation and eyelash extensions they are all different.

Different in the shape of eyes, face, eyelash volume, allergies and concerns and of course expectations,

You can expect a look that is unique to you and we will look after you from start to finish.

Eyelash Extension Treatment

Treatments can take a minimum of 1.5 hours up to 3 hours dependent on the eyelash extensions chosen and desired look.

Your stay with us will be a comfortable one. Customers have even been known to fall asleep (obviously therapeutic!) but we don't mind, we are happy to keep you company during treatment, put on some music or talk about any subject!

Treatments are carried out at our Portsmouth beauty salon, situated in Copnor next to Baffins Pond.

Aftercare & Treatment Packs

Everyone's natural eyelash growth cycle is approximately 90 days. Eyelashes naturally shed and are replaced by new baby lashes and these begin to grow and fill in the space left by the lost lash. 

It takes a little while for new lashes to reach their optimal length, in the meantime you are left with an empty looking space.

 

 The fact is, we will lose one or more of our natural lashes every single day!

 

This process is totally normal and natural, but since lash extensions are attached directly to our natural lashes, together they must fall.

 

If your eyelash extensions are falling out, you should to consider the below:

 

Using mascara or other waterproof makeup

Mascara has been proven to break down the bonds of lash extension adhesive.

Using oil based skincare products

Just like oily skin, oil-based products can break down the adhesive bond between your lash and the lash extension, causing instant fall out. 

 

Rubbing your eyes or even pulling on your eyelash extensions

If you suffer from dry eye and have a tendency to rub your eyes, your extensions will most likely fall out along with your natural lashes, when rubbed excessively. If your own lashes fallout along with the extension, there will be nothing left to attach new extensions to, until the next phase in lash regrowth. Prevent all rubbing of the eye and pulling of lashes when possible.

 

How you sleep

How you sleep, or more importantly the position that you sleep in can be a contributing factor in premature lash extension loss. Those of us who sleep on our stomachs or in odd face down positions may experience issues retaining their lash extensions for the optimal length of time.  While sleeping face down on a pillow, your lash extension will likely be pushed and bent out of shape not to mention rubbed with movement against the pillow. This force trauma will likely loosen the bond of the adhesive and cause fall out. 

 

Improper lash extension care

Improper care like not removing dirt, debris or oil may cause lash extension loss.  Neglecting to clean your extensions can cause infection and inflammation to occur at the base of the hair follicle. Brushing is another key step in lash extension care. You should brush your lashes with a spoolie/mascara wand as part of your daily routine but be careful and use gentle strokes when brushing.  

 

Vitamins and supplements

Some vitamins and supplements that help with hair, skin and nails may cause lashes to shed faster, causing your lash extensions to fall out quicker than expected. 

 

Getting your lash extensions wet too soon

I recommend that you do not get your new lash extensions wet for at least 24-48 hours after the procedure. It takes about 24-48 hours for the adhesive to properly cure a secure bond onto your lashes. If you DO get your new extensions wet, the adhesive may crystallise and cause irritation, which may lead to intense eye rubbing. After the 24-48 hour "drying period" you may resume your routine as usual.

 

Eyelash technician error

Even though most of us are trained and experienced, the potential for human error is still present. Errors may include: too little or too much glue used, forgot or didn't properly prepare the lash follicle prior to lash application.

Hormones
