New Clients allow an extra 15 minutes for a consultation and tidy up 98% of the time (we actually did the math!), when new clients come to us from another lash salon, we have found that a significant amount of correction is required before we can actually apply new lashes. Correction of previous work involves separating natural lashes so they can grow and shed as normal, removing improperly applied (crooked) lashes and educating you about what we see. If your current lash extensions are uncomfortable at all (aching, sore, scratchy, etc.), you have unfortunately received poorly applied lash extensions. But don’t fret…we would love to fix them for you and we don’t charge anything extra!

Eyelash Extensions

Silk

These are mid-weight type of lash extensions, and are finer and more flexible than synthetic eyelash extensions because they are softer and more porous, they are better quality and therefore a more popular option than synthetic eyelash extensions.

Silk eyelash extensions are flexible and can be mixed and styled with technical expertise to create a more natural look or a more defined look dependent on the thickness and lengths that are used, they come in a variety of curls, lengths and thickness. Silk eyelashes extensions can be used for regular wear although we do not recommend this lash type for every day wear as prolonged periods of wear, due to their weight. They are not as light as Real Mink or Sable. Silk lashes are lighter and more comfortable than Acrylic or Synthetic and there is no need for mascara as the pigment in the lash is already deep and dark.

Silk Mink

Silk Mink also known as Faux Mink are the most popular extensions used by lash artists, they have good flexibility, a realistic tapered shape and retain their curl, best of all they are low maintenance. Faux Mink or Silk mink have a glossier appearance than real mink and silk and are generally finer and lighter than the standard silk.

Silk Mink are a popular choice with brides who want a more natural look but still with some depth and volume, they are available in a variety of curls and lengths and great for customising looks, a better option for holidays as they hold better in water than real mink, silk or real sable eyelashes and no need for curling or mascara.

Luxury Real Mink

100% authentic mink fur for a luxurious “velvet-like” appearance and the most natural result available. Real mink eyelash extensions are superior to man made lashes. They’re beautifully soft, more natural looking, and are so lightweight that you don’t even notice you have them on. Canadian and Siberian Real Mink eyelash extensions are cruelty free; no animals are ever harmed in the process. Hairs are harvested by gentle brushing, then sanitised so that even people with allergies to animals should be able to wear them,

Real Mink extensions last longer as they are the lightest of lashes, the best option for clients who don’t want a full on glamour look but more of a subtle enhancement to thicken and lengthen existing lashes. These lashes are not a great option if you are planning on going on holiday as they can lose their curl if continually exposed to heat and moisture.,

An excellent choice for clients with naturally finer shorter lashes, we can apply multiple lashes to one lash achieving 100% coverage even if your natural are sparse to start with.

Russian Volume / 3D

Volume lash extensions consist of unique technique applying multiple individual lash extensions to each natural lash in a special fanned out shape. Between 3-6 lashes are applied to each of your own lashes usually resulting in between 200-400 lashes per eye instead of the traditional 1:1 ratio observed with classic lash extensions that have around 80-100 extensions per eye. This technique creates a much fuller deeper look for instant impact and sultry, voluminous and fluttery lashes.

Dealing with individual eyelash extensions and blepharitis

Bletharitis is best avoided by keeping the eyelash extensions clean. Blepharitis occurs when the hair follicle becomes blocked and infected – looking like dandruff around your eyelash extensions. Your skins natural oil called sebum, as well as bacteria and dead skin cells that haven’t been properly cleaned can block hair follicles.

What to do if you find you have blepharitis

It is recommended that you have your eyelash extensions removed by a trained and qualified eyelash technician. This should be followed by a trip to you GP who will recommend a to
pical ointment. Applying this to the eyelid should clear up the infection.

Note: It isn’t only those with eyelash extensions that suffer from Blepharitis. Individuals who don’t correctly remove their mascara or clean their face properly can also suffer from it.
