Classic lashes are a 1:1 technique where one lash extension is applied to one natural lash. we can work with your natural lash line to provide length and some additional density. Volume or mega volume lashes are techniques where multiple lash extensions are applied to one natural lashes in a fan to created darker, denser lashes lines and add length and volume without causing damage to the natural lash. Both styles are completely custom to the client and your artists will discuss the desired look you want to achieve and what the best technique would be.
Frequently Asked Questions
Please come to you lash appointment with completely makeup free around your eyes. Bring any inspiration photos preferably from your artists portfolio. Please do not drink any caffeine at least 4 hours prior to your lash appointment. Bring a blanket and headphones to your appointment so you can enjoy your lash nap.
Lash after care consists washing your lashes daily with an approved lash cleanser, avoiding direct heat (they can melt!), no picking or pulling at your lashes, no mascara on your lashes and no falsies on top of them ever. We highly encourage scheduling regular lash maintenances to maintain the health and integrity of your natural lashes.
Lash maintenances are recommended every 2-3 weeks to keep the health of you natural lashes in tact and make sure the extensions stay in top condition.
A lash lift is a semi-permanent service that curls your lashes from the root to give the appearance of longer and lifted natural lashes. The results are achieve by a gentle chemical process and the results last 6-8 week. A brow lamination is a similar process in which brow hairs are redirected to achieve a bolder, fuller brow. This also allows the brow hairs to be manipulated into the desired position once the process is completed. Brow laminations are usually couple with a brow shape and tint and last 8 weeks.
There is minimal after care for both services and the main rule is no heat, steam or water for 24 hours. Avoid sleeping directly on lashes or brows the night of your services. After care products are available to keep brows and lashes hydrated and conditioned throughout the 6-8 weeks post procedure.
Unlike microblading, a powder brow (also known as an ombre brow) has no hair strokes and is made up entirely of machine shading. It is ideal for all skin types. A powder brow is achieved by using a single needle tattoo machine which implants small dots of pigment below the skin. These dots are layered on top of each other until the desired amount of saturation, or color density is achieved. A very soft and subtle amount of shading with no harsh edges can be done for an ultra-natural look, or we can layer shading on top of each other for a more defined, fill-in look! Powder brows can be completely customized to fit the client’s preferences. If you have oily skin, large pores, uneven brow hair growth, or very coarse hair this is a great option for you. It ideal for all skins types gives an even layer of color to the brow, healing to the perfect powdery finish! Powder brows are not “stamped on brows”, and have beautiful results! Powder brows may look intense at first, but the results heal to a soft, powdery finish.
Preparing for your appointment is just as important for good healed results as post care. Failure to follow pre-care may result in the inability for us to do your brows the day of your appointment. You coming prepared to you appointment will ultimately mean better healed results and a better overall experience for the process.
2 WEEKS BEFORE:
BOTOX: It must be done at least 14 days prior to your appointment. It takes at least that long to settle in the skin and give the final results. Receiving it within 14 days of your appointment will mean you will be asked to reschedule.
WAXING: I recommend coming to your appointment with your brows grown out, no need to have them cleaned up before. I will want to see how they grow naturally and I will clean them up for you at your appointment if we need. If you tint your brows, please do so at least 7 days prior.
RETIN-A: Please discontinued use of any retin-a products in the brow area for 2 weeks prior to your appointment.
24 HOURS BEFORE:
To minimize bleeding during the procedure, please avoid any alcohol and excessive caffeine. Blood thinning medications such as Ibuprofen and Advil should also be avoided unless prescribed by a doctor. Avoid fish oil and vitamin E as well to ensure we take all precautions to minimize bleeding.
DAY OF YOUR APPOINTMENT:
Wash your hair! You won’t be able to get your brows submerged in water for the next 10 days, so wash your hair beforehand to give yourself a few extra days before your next wash!
Avoid exercise. Exercising increases blood flow and will cause excessive bleeding, leading to poor healed results.
Makeup: You are welcome to come to your appointment with or without makeup on. We will be taking lots of photos, so come however you are most comfortable. I will be cleansing your entire brow area, temples and forehead.
Bring your brow makeup. If you have a specific product you love, bring it along so I can see the shade you usually use to fill in your brows
Relax! Feeling nervous is normal. We are going to work together to create the perfect brows for you!
Right after your appointment your brows may be a bit red and swollen and the pigment will begin to appear darker and warmer as it oxidizes in that fist 24 hours. The night of your appointment wash you brows with clean hands and the brow wash provided for you. Day 2-4 wash your brows morning and evening and apply after lotion to them after you pat them dry with a clean towel post cleanse. day 5-10 wash when you are in the shower and apply lotion 2-3 times daily to keep them hydrated and relieve any itchiness. There may be scabbing and flaky throughout the process and we advise you NOT to pick or scratch as this will alter healed results.
Touch ups are HIGHLY recommended to complete the process as we need to see how you brows heal and the pigment settles. Perfectly touch ups are recommended 6-8 post initial appointment. Once this touch up has happened your brows will be good to go for 12-18months!
