Please arrive to your lash appointments without any eye makeup on. This includes anything on the upper eyelashes, lower eyelashes, upper eyelid, lower eyelid, and surrounding eye area. Removal of any eye makeup by your lash technician will cut into your treatment time and could affect the final result of your appointment.
Individual results may vary and are dependant on the length/volume of your natural lashes and on the type of extension you choose to have applied.
Although the possibility is low, reactions towards eyelash extensions may occur at anytime to anyone at no fault of the lash technician or the products used. We cannot offer a refund if this occurs but we do advise that you contact us immediately so we can offer a solution, such s a free removal of the extensions and we would recommend seeing a doctor immediately if the symptoms persist.
We recommend that you maintain your extensions with infills every 2 - 3 weeks or if you do not have many lashes left. After 4 weeks or if you have no lashes remaining, a new full set will be required.
Lash extensions MUST NOT contact water, steam or heavy humidity for 24 hours after application.

Please disclose any eye conditions, injuries, medications or treatments used on/in or affecting the eye area in advance.
We offer all lash and brow treatments to clients who are expecting, however due to hormonal changes we cannot guarantee the longevity of the eyelash extensions.

We also require that all clients be able to lie flat for the duration of their eyelash treatment, this is for the health and safety of our lash technicians as it can be physically strenuous for them otherwise.
