How To Prepare For Your Appointment

  1. Fresh Face. We want you to have the most beautiful, fullest lashes in all of the land! To make sure we're able to lash as many of your natural lashes as possible in your appointment time, make sure to remove ALL eye makeup before your appointment. This not only helps with lash retention, but it also saves time that your stylist will have to otherwise spend removing it for you! Be sure to use a mild, oil-free cleanser to eliminate excess oils around the eyes. 
    - Avoid applying sunscreen or moisturizers to ensure proper adhesion.
    Do not wear mascara to your extension appointment. Lashes must be fresh and clean for the application process.
    - Try not to use waterproof mascara 2-3 days prior. It leaves a residue that could prevent extensions from sticking correctly.
    - Do not curl your lashes. It works better to apply extensions when they are as straight as possible.

  2. Come Clean. Showering and/or washing your face prior to your appointment is important! If you want to have the best retention, you'll want to eliminate contact with water/ steam as much as possible within the first day of your appointment so that the adhesive of the extensions can properly set with your natural lashes.

  3. Remove Contacts. We understand that your contacts are essentially a part of you, and for many, the only way to visually make out any shapes or objects, but  please be sure to remove them for the appointment. This will allow your eyes to be in their most natural, rested state and prevent any glue fumes from entering your eyes or excessive drying out to occur as they are closed throughout the session. Wear glasses instead, or bring a contact lens case to remove them.

  4. Turn Off Your Phone. We understand emergencies can happen, but getting a call or text during an appointment where you need to stay still and keep your eyes closed is like having the worst imaginable itch that you can't scratch! Questions like "who could that be", or "is everyone okay" start racing through your mind and your first instinct is to open your eyes and leap off the table (not recommended for several reasons!). Let those close to you know you'll be unavailable for the next few hours. Unless you’re actually waiting on a SUPER important call, then please turn your phone on silent – it’ll help you relax more and make your lash appointment that much more enjoyable. 

  5. Use the Bathroom Before. When you're lying on a table for up to 3 hours and all of a sudden those 32 ounces of water you tried cramming in just to reach your hydration goal for the day comes knocking on your bladder while your eyelids are taped in several places, you'll thank us for reminding you.

  6. Avoid Caffeine. We love and require caffeine to function as much as the next person but consuming it before your lash appointment should be a hard pass! Picture someone trying to use very tiny, sharply pointed objects that require the utmost care and attention, next to a beautiful set of peepers that are heavily convulsing....ya, it gives us anxiety too!

  7. Get Comfy & Relax. Think of your lash appointment as some much needed YOU time! You get to let go of the stresses from your day and completely unwind. Your lash appointment may take up to 3 hours, the perfect time to let go, relax and for most, have the best adult nap that you care to admit!

  8. Quiet Time. We love getting to know and catch up with all of our fabulous clients, however talking throughout an appointment does lead to fluttering eyelids and makes application much more difficult and time consuming. Please understand, these recommendations are only because we care and want you leaving with the most fabulous lashes that last you weeks and weeks!

Aftercare

  1. Don't wash your new lashes for at least 24hours after application. This ensures the glue has completely cured. 

  2. Wash your lashes (concentrating at the roots) with a lash-safe cleanser and soft-bristled brush every day. We naturally produce oils that can break down the glue affecting retention. 

  3. Avoid heat & steam from ovens, BBQs, saunas, steam rooms, hot yoga, extreme cold temperatures (or wear goggles!). The extra heat and moisture can melt your extensions and/or dramatically decrease the retention of your lash extensions. The extreme cold can cause water build up on our lashes that then freezes also affecting lash retention.

  4. Don't rub or pick your lashes. The extra friction and natural oils on our fingers can prematurely cause our lash extensions to fall out. Try to use your supplied lash spoolie if you have the urge to itch.

  5. Avoid waterproof makeup and oil-based makeup removes. Ingredients in these products will break down the glue once again affecting your retention.

  6. Don't face plant your pillow when you sleep. Understandably, majority of us have ZERO control when we are unconscious so it can be quite difficult to avoid sleeping on your face or even remember it happened! If you notice a bunch of lone soldiers greeting you on your pillow this may be a good sign that you did some face sleeping. Try using a silk pillow sheet or eye mask to prevent your lashes from catching and being pulled out.

  7. Don't tint, perm or curl your eyelashes (even old-school eyelash curlers are a no-no).

  8. Keep your lashes pretty by brushing daily  (and your natural lashes healthy) by refilling them every 2 - 4 weeks.

Common Questions:

LASH EXTENSIONS

HOW LONG WILL MY APPOINTMENT TAKE?


Your appointment time will vary depending on the the amount of healthy natural lashes you have to cover. For full sets, new clients should be prepared for approx 4 hours which includes an in-depth consultation to ensure we are providing you with a customized lash set that compliements your eye shape and style of lash you are looking for. Fills are typically 2-2.5 hours.




HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED A FILL?


Following your first new set of lashes we recommend your first fill to be around the two week mark to see how much growth and fallout you've had. Typically, you will need a fill every two to three weeks. This does depend on if you're following all aftercare instructions and on your natural lashes as some lash growth cycles are faster than others.




IS MY TECHNICIAN EXPERIENCED?


Absolutely! We received our certification from Elite lash Society here in Edmonton, and have taken a hands on technique class from The Crafted Lash in Sherwood Park. We pride ourselves on providing the most hygenic, Covid safe, professional environment as humanly possible.




WHAT ARE IN THE PRODUCTS YOU USE?


All of the extensions we use are a synthetic silk or mink (never real mink of course). The main ingredient used in lash adhesives is cyanoacrylate (found in superglue) and carbon black (found in black eyeliners and black mascaras). All adhesives are latex free.




WHAT IF I AM ALLERGIC TO EXTENSIONS?


Unfortunately allergies can occur with extensions. We will ask you a series of questions when you book your appointment. If you have had a reaction to extensions before and it was a true allergy, you will unfortunately not be able to continue getting extensions. The more you are exposed to the allergen, the more severe your reactions will be. Even if you have taken a break from extensions for a few years, you will most likely react after a couple of appointments.




I HAD MY LASHES DONE ELSEWHERE, CAN I BOOK A FILL HERE?


At this time we will only fill on our own work.




I WANT LASHES FOR A SPECIAL OCCASION, WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY APPOINTMENT?


Firstly, congratulations on your special occasion! We know that with a lot of special occasions, there is usually a lot to do and not a lot of spare time, so we recommend coming in for the full set 10 – 14 days before the occasion and then scheduling a fill a day or two beforehand. This will ensure you are used to your new look and that your lashes will look their best on the big day.




DO LASH EXTENSIONS DAMAGE MY NATURAL LASHES?


While some think this is the case, it only happens if the extensions are not applied by a trained professional. There is a fine art in determining the correct curl, lash length and diameter to use on each lash. It takes time, patience and a high level of detail to ensure each extension is perfectly placed.




HOW LONG DO LASH EXTENSIONS LAST?


We shed an average of 4-5 lashes per day, so fills are recommended every 2 to 3 weeks to keep your lashes looking full and fabulous!




WHAT IF I'M SENSITIVE TO THE GLUE?


If you are unsure or think you may be sensitive to the glue we highly recommend booking in a sensitivity test a couple days before your appointment to make sure you are a good candidate for eyelash extensions.




CAN I WEAR MAKE-UP LIKE MASCARA OR EYELINER?


Yes, but it MUST NOT BE OIL-BASED OR WATERPROOF. The oil will break down the adhesive resulting in poor retention. Be careful when removing makeup as your cleanser needs to be water-based or oil-free.




ARE THE LASHES REMOVABLE?


Yes. At anytime for any reason you feel you would like to remove your extensions, they can be removed by a professional only with the use of our remover specific for the extensions. Please do not attempt to remove them yourself as you will most likely pull out your natural eyelashes with them, cause damage to your natural lashes and prevent future growth. We will not be responsible for any damage to your natural lashes if you try to remove them on your own.




WHO SHOULD NOT WEAR EYELASH EXTENSIONS ?


You should not get lash extensions if you: - Have pre-existing eyelid or eye conditions such as blepharitis and ocular rosacea - Are very rough with themselves and do not want to follow proper aftercare instructions - Want a very heavy mascara look but do not have the natural lashes to support it - Have a condition called Trichotillomania, which is hair loss resulting from compulsive pulling or twisting of the hair, brows or in this case, eyelashes - Have non-healthy lashes (alopecia, cancer, postpartum, demodex folliculorm - Are in chlorinated water many times a week - Cannot control rubbing their eyes especially if you have seasonal allergies - Have had recent eye or eyelid surgery within the past four weeks - Have non-healthy skin surrounding the eye area or face area from any type of invasive treatment (recent laser surgery, micro-dermabrasion, chemical peeling, retin-A within 24 hours)
