~ Make sure that you come to your appointment wearing no eye makeup or eye creams. Removal will add to your appointment time, and if it takes up a significant amount of time to remove, you may be charged for removal.
~ Stop using any waterproof mascara and do not use strip lashes 5 days prior to your first appointment. If you do not follow this recommendation, there is a strong possibility your lashes will not last as long due to residue on the lashes, preventing proper bonding.
~ You may request a patch test if you would like, to make sure you don't have a sensitivity to the glue. This must be done at least 24 hours prior to your actual appointment.
~ If you wear contact lenses, either bring glasses for your appointment or a case to store them in during your service. Contacts shouldn't be worn during application.
~ Wear something comfortable as you will be at your appointment for approximately 1-3 hours depending on your service.
~Do not wash or wet lashes for 24hrs after your appointment. The process of curing, which is how the glue sets and dries, is activated by water. This process can take up to 18 hours to complete.
~ Once you have waited 24hrs, it is extremely important to keep your lashes clean by washing them every night and brushing them into place once they are dry. Natural oils, sweat, dirt & debri will cause the glue to breakdown and weaken the bond. Keeping the lash line as clean as possible will help your lashes last longer and prevent infection.
~ Do not pick, pull or touch your lashes. This can cause irritation, weaken the glue bond, or cause your natural lash to fall out.
~ Use only oil-free products on the eyes. Oil deteriorates the glue and will cause lash extensions to fall off sooner.
~ Avoid getting too close to open flames, such as a fire pit or a lighter. The high heat can melt the lash extension and cause it to become distorted.
~ You may want to use a satin pillow. Extensions can get caught on cotton, and the friction may cause the lash to fall off.
~ Sleep on your back. You will notice more lash loss on which ever side you favor sleeping on.
~ When washing your hair, let the conditioner rinse it out from the back. Do not let the conditioner pass over the lashes, even if it's as you're washing it away.
~ Salt deteriorates glue. If you tear up, go in salt water or workout, make sure you wash your lashes with lash cleanser and water ASAP.
~ If you have any concerns, contact your lash artist.
~Come to your appointment with no eye makeup or creams.
~ Avoid consuming caffeinated beverages before your appointment. Caffeine can cause your eyes to flutter during your treatment.
~Do not use waterproof mascara or eyeliner, or an eyelash curler 3 days prior to your appointment.
~Do not wear strip lashes 5 days prior.
~You may request a patch test up to 24 hours before to ensure you don't have a sensitivity to the lift solutions.
~If you wear contact lenses, they must be removed during the service. Either bring glasses for your appointment or a case to store them in.
*Your results and the longevity of the lift and tint can vary based on your care and individual lash cycle*
~ Do Not Wet lashes for 24 hours after treatment.
~ Do not expose lashes to sunlight immediately after. It can weaken the lift lotion and fade your tint.
~ Be very gently with your lashes. No rubbing or pulling at them.
~ Sleep on your back. Lashes are still malleable and can be distorted if you sleep on your side even after 24 hours has passed.
~ Do Not wear any eye makeup for 24 hours. After 24 hours, you may wear makeup, however, NO WATERPROOF MASCARAS.
~ Do Not use any oils, lotions, creams, shampoos, face washes, makeup remover wipes or pads for 24 hours. After the 24 hours, oil-based face washes and beauty products can still affect the lift and you may notice it drops sooner.
~ No heat, steam (including cooking on stovetop), or saunas for 24 hours. Keep in mind exposing lashes to these after the 24 hours may cause the lift to fall sooner.
Pre Wax Instructions
~ You must have at least 1/4" (approximately 2 weeks of growth after shaving) and no more than 1" (approximately 4-6 weeks of growth after shaving) of hair length. Don't go more than 2 months in between waxes. If the hair is too long you may be refused service and told to shave down and reschedule for 2 weeks out.
~ Make sure to exfoliate 24-48 hours prior to your appointment.
~ Moisturize the area to be waxed on the day of your appointment with unscented lotion.
~ For Women: Keep your appointment 3-5 days out from either end of your menstruation. You will be more sensitive during this time.
~ We suggest taking 2 Aleve and a Claritin(or other antihistamine) approximately 45-60 minutes prior to your appointment. This will help reduce sensitivity and prevent allergic reaction. Please consult your physician if you are unsure if you can take these. Your health is our main concern.
~ Avoid alcohol and caffeine the day of your appointment. These can cause increased sensitivity and bruising.
~ Wear loose fitting clothing to avoid friction and irritation following your wax.
After Wax Instructions
~ Remember, waxing opens your pores, keep the area clean and do no apply anything scented to the waxed area.
~ Do not workout or cause any friction in the waxed area. This can cause irritation and leave you open to infection. *This means avoid intercourse if you have waxed your bikini area*
~ If you are prone to ingrown hairs, begin gently exfoliating once you begin to notice regrowth. You may also want to purchase the lotion we have which helps soothe, disinfect, and prevent ingrown hairs after waxing.
~ There is a very rare allergic reaction that shows up within the first 24-48 hours of waxing which looks like small whiteheads. If this happens, take an antihistamine and use a hydrocortisone cream on the affected area for relief for about 3 days. It is important not to scratch or try to pop these bumps. Consult with your doctor if you are unsure if you can follow this advice.
~ Once you decide waxing is for you, it is important not to shave in between waxes. This can cause ingrown hairs.
