Arrive Makeup-Free: Your lash artist needs a completely clean canvas to work with, which means no mascara, concealer, makeup, or skincare of any kind around the eye area. Expedite the process (and do your tech a favor) by arriving completely makeup-free.
Skip the Caffeine: While this isn’t a painful process for most people, it can be nerve-wracking to have to be completely still (with your eyes closed) for up to two hours. Coffee, energy drinks, soda, and caffeine of any kind will only amplify the jitters. It also causes some people to have fluttery lids resulting in difficulty for the tech to get clean isolation, sometimes even making it impossible to lash you.
Come Cozy: While you can technically get this done before or after work, keep in mind that you’re going to be lying down for up to two hours. Dress comfortably in clothing that won’t require constant adjusting.
Go to the Bathroom: Remember, this process can take up to two hours. Go to the bathroom before your lash artist starts the process, and avoid drinking for at least an hour before your appointment.
Come With Photo Inspiration: What you might consider to be a natural look can be completely different from what your tech thinks is a natural look. A picture is worth a thousand words, so bring photo inspiration of eyelash extension looks you like.
Make a Playlist: If you’re anxious ahead of your appointment or worried that you’ll be bored, we don’t mind if you want to listen to music or a podcast. Just let your esthetician know if it’s okay to remove your headphones for you if she needs to communicate.
Stop Your Retinol: Retinol increases sensitivity for some, especially in an area as delicate as the eyes. It’s a good idea to stop use of all retinols, acids, scrubs, and acne treatments a few days before your appointment (and if you have concerns about sensitivity, talk to your dermatologist).
Please arrive 5-10 minutes prior to your appointment time to complete the Client Lash Form & questionnaire.
And did we mention to arrive makeup free ?!
