Frequently Asked Questions
What are semi permanent eyelash extensions?
The latest trend sweeping across the beauty industry and a favourite with many celebrities from models to rock chicks.
Eyelash extensions will make your lashes fuller and enhance your eyes. The extensions are synthetic, available in a range of lengths and thicknesses and applied individually to each natural lash.
Lavish Lashes use Nouveau Lashes’ award-winning eyelash extensions.
How long will application take?
Eyelash extension application will take 1 – 2 hours depending on your natural lashes and the look you would like to achieve. It can be a very relaxing treatment; your eyes will be closed throughout and many clients fall asleep.
How long will they last?
Eyelash extensions will generally last 3 – 5 weeks, depending on how well you care for and maintain your lashes. Lavish Lashes will provide a full list of uncomplicated aftercare instructions.
Infills are generally recommended every 2 – 4 weeks to keep your lashes looking full.
Can I shower and swim with lashes on?
Please do not allow the lashes to come into contact with water for the first 2 hours following treatment.
Swimming, having a sauna or washing the eye area with hot water is not recommended for the first 48 hours, as – although the lash glue is set almost immediately – steam, heat or chlorine irritation may affect the longevity of your eyelash extensions.
Is it alright to wear mascara?
One of the many benefits of eyelash extensions is that you will look amazing without mascara! However, if you do choose to wear mascara for an even more glamorous look, it is important that you choose a non-waterproof mascara and do not use mascara remover on your Nouveau Lashes.
(Waterproof mascaras require oil based removers which can affect the bonding of your eyelash extensions and cause them to fall out prematurely.) Use water-based mascara only on lash tips.
What do I need to do prior to my appointment?
Please note, treatment is by appointments only.
Please be prompt to your appointment to ensure you receive as much treatment time as possible. Please remove all eye makeup including mascara.
If you wear contact lenses please bring a case and solution to place you lenses in during treatment. This is just to avoid irritation to the eye during the application.
