Longer, fuller and darker lashes have always been seen as a beautiful feature and that is why eyelash extensions have become so popular in recent years. Lash extensions both extend the length and add thickness of your natural lashes in an instant. They last between 2-4 weeks depending on the level of aftercare undertaken by the client and are perfect for warmer weather when even waterproof mascara is put to the test.
CityWax offer a variety of styles of lash extensions ranging from the simple “mascara look” to our fullest Russian Volume set. Prices range from €50 – €100 and all of our beauticians are Miss. Diva certified.
Below I have put together a list of FAQ to help any clients thinking of getting lash extensions applied.
- How do I prepare my lashes for eyelash extensions?
Clients must ensure that they have NO eye make up on before their eyelash extensions appointment. We recommend removing all traces of eye makeup particularly mascara or eyeliner at least 24-48 hours before the appointment. If using an oil based cleanser it is vital that all traces of oil are washed from the lashes as this could affect the application process.
- How are eyelash extensions applied?
One of the clients natural eyelashes is isolated using a special tweezers and an eyelash extension is applied using glue specifically designed for use on eyelashes.
CityWax provide two types of lash extensions application – the classic style of one-to-one and Russian volume. One-to-one lash extensions are when one eyelash extension is applied to one of the client’s natural lashes. Both our Miss Cute and Miss Elegant sets of eyelash extensions are applied in this way. During Miss Cute application 50 lashes will be applied to each eye and during Miss Elegant application 75 lashes will be applied to each eye. Both of these looks are catered to clients who are looking for a more subtle mascara-look.
Russian Volume is quite different to one-to-one application in that between 2-6 hairs are first hand-made into a fan during the appointment and then these 2-6 hairs are applied to the clients individual lashes. Russian volume lash extensions create a more full and dramatic look and are recommended for girls who wear makeup and are used to wearing false lashes.
- Will eyelash extensions damage my own natural lashes?
Eyelash extensions will cause no damage to your own lashes if the instructions given by your therapist are followed carefully. After your appointment you will receive an aftercare sheet specifying what you should and should not do after the eyelash extensions are applied. It is vital that clients follow these instructions. You will also be given a spoolie (a brush for lashes) so that you can comb through your lashes daily to keep them fluffy.
- What will happen during my appointment?
Your therapist will first discuss the type of lashes you are getting and the results you can expect. Results will entirely depend on the client’s own natural lashes. You will then be asked to lay down on the bed and a blanket will be placed over you. Ensure that you are comfortable and if you are not make the therapist aware and she will adjust the bed accordingly.
Your therapist will then ask you to close your eyes and separate the top lashes from the bottom lashes using special tape or a gel pad. Again, let your therapist know if the position of the items used are uncomfortable. Once everything is in place your therapist will begin applying the lashes. You should not feel anything more than your eyelashes being separated gently as the lash extensions are applied away from the lash line and the glue will not touch your skin.
Once the lashes are applied your therapist will ask you to keep your eyes closed for a few seconds. It is important that you do not open your eyes prematurely as this may result in stinging from bright lights in the room etc. Your therapist will remove the tape or pads carefully and brush through the lashes to ensure they are equally full.
- How long will my appointment take?
Eyelash extensions application time varies depending on the set chosen. Miss Cute lashes take just over one hour to apply. Miss Elegant lashes take an hour and a half to apply and our fullest set, Miss Glamorous take up to two hours to apply.
- Will I be able to go about my day as normal following application?
Yes, you will be able to go about your day as normal following lash extensions application.
I hope this little FAQ helps all our clients contemplating getting lash extensions done for the Summer months. I, personally, adore having them done.
