Stephanie our Xtreme Lash Specialist wants you to know......
Long, full lashes no longer have to be something you're born with. Lash extensions have gone mainstream and old fashioned false lashes have met their match. Once applied these lashes are so natural looking it is difficult to tell even up close that you have extensions on.
Here at Glow, we use Xtreme Lashes semi-permanent eyelash extension. They are made of a single synthetic eyelash that is attached to your individual eyelash. Not your skin! Xtreme Products are developed to the highest standard of safety. The lash adhesive is formulated to create a solid bond, dries very soft on the lash which creates a flexible, bouncy lash. With different lengths, thicknesses and curvatures to choose from, we can customize a full set of lashes specifically for your eyes creating a longer, fuller and darker lash look.
How to Prepare for your Lash Application
Ensure that your eyelashes and eye area is makeup free, clean and dry. Do not curl your eyelashes or wear mascara to the appointment. If you are a contact lens wearer, remove your contacts prior to application. You should plan on 2-3 hours for your appointment.
What to Expect during Application
Depending on the number of eyelash extensions applied, a full set (60-70 lashes per eye) may take 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 hours. Relashes, or lash refills which are every 2-3 1/2 weeks after may take 1- 1 1/2 hours. During the procedure, you will be laying down comfortably with your eyes closed. Many of our clients call it their "midday beauty rest".
What to Expect After and How to Care for your Lashes
Lashes are a maintenance beauty treatment. They require good care in order for the lashes to last long and stay in good condition. With routine relashes every 2-3 weeks, new extensions are applied to new natural eyelashes to maintain the original look. To maintain a more voluminous look, refills may need to be within the 2 week period where as a natural look may be around 3- 3 1/2 weeks. During the first 48 hours after application, you will need to keep your new lashes dry and makeup free, that way the adhesive cures correctly
Women who get eyelash extensions no longer have to use mascara. The lashes are fairly durable, too. You can work out, swim or go to the beach without worrying about ruining your lashes or having your mascara run.
