Thank you to the wonderful design team at FutureFORM Creative and Eastern Suburbs Shopfitters, who also did our Parramatta salon, for the gorgeous new shop. It’s a beautiful space to be in and we have received lots of happy feedback from our clients that have been in since we moved on December 2nd. Come in and experience it for yourself.

All face shapes can use the following tips for the perfect brows whether you have a heart, square, round, long, or diamond shaped face.

  • Begin the brow at the bridge of the nose.
  • Have the arch approximately two-thirds along the brow. Round faces – more arch, long faces – less arch.
  • Avoid shortening eyebrows; length is better. Imagine a line from the edge of your nose extending along past the corner of your eye. Your brows should reach this line. You can extend the end of the brows past this if you like, however keep it above the beginning of the brow otherwise it could make the eyes appear droopy.
  • Go to a professional. Avoid over grooming, permanent brow loss from over-plucking, uneven brows or the wrong shape for your face by going to a lash and brow specialist. Rainbow brows and commas are not flattering! A brow technician will be able to enhance your natural beauty by creating the right shape and style for you.
  • Eyebrow trends for 2015 and 2016 are about fullness, length and soft, natural-looking lines.

Need help?

  • Going grey? Getting your eyebrows tinted professionally will shave years off your appearance. This is one of the easiest, quickest and least expensive ways to appear more youthful. Blondes, this includes you too. We have a range of cool and warm tints and shades to suit all tones. Eyebrows grow out faster than lashes and need to be tinted every 2 weeks.
  • Need fullness?
    • Get a professional eyebrow tint.
    • For a more permanent solution consider hair stroke eyebrow tattooing (see image below). It will last 2 – 4 years depending on the depth of the colour. We provide free cosmetic tattooing consultations at our salons and you are under no obligation to book afterwards.
    • Use a lash and brow growth serum. Used twice a day results can be seen in as little as 3 weeks.
  • Have a scar gap, asymmetry or permanent brow loss from over-grooming? You could consider corrective cosmetic brow tattooing. Eyebrows are created by fine hair strokes and the tattoo is undetectable.

Gel nails last longer and are healthier for your nails. Gel won’t chip or wear away like other nail polishes. Gel colours are cured using a LED or UV light and need to be professionally applied by a qualified nail technician.

We offer the choice of Shellac and Bio Sculpture at Elegant Lashes. Both provide excellent wear and will last a few weeks and maintain a high shine and won’t chip, crack or peel.

Bio Sculpture is revolutionary in that it is not only a nail colour but it will also strengthen and improve the health of your natural nails.

Can I wear mascara with lash extensions? The short answer is yes and no. You don’t need to wear mascara if you have eyelash extensions. After all, extensions solve the problem mascara tries to fix.

Nevertheless, some people prefer to wear both. And, there are times you may prefer a more dramatic look. It is also a quick and temporary solution to add fullness to extensions that are overdue for an infill.

Some tips to wearing mascara over lash extensions:

– Wear a water based mascara. Oil based mascaras can shorten the life of your extensions. If you are not sure if your mascara is water based, there are specially formulated mascaras on the market for eyelash extensions such as Max2 Mascara Gold.

– Apply the mascara from mid lengths to tips. Never from the base as this can pull at the extensions.

– If you are using mascara to hide long-needed to be filled extensions use the tip of the mascara brush and apply on the natural lashes where there are no longer extensions. Then using the long side of the brush lightly apply over all the lashes.

– Make sure you thoroughly remove the mascara with a water based cleanser or remover to prevent build up of residue around the base of the lashes.

– All in all, the less you touch your extensions the longer they will last.

 


We are often asked how long eyelash extensions last for. It depends on your natural lashes, the lash extensions you get and aftercare. Generally, a full set of Luxe eyelash extensions will last for a few weeks and many clients come back every two to three weeks for infills to maintain them.

Ways to make your eyelash extensions last:

– Avoid getting oil based products on the lashes. Oil can weaken the glue bond. Oil can be found in some cleansers, make up, sunscreens and moisturisers. Your fingers also secrete a small amount of oil so it’s best to touch them as little as possible.

– Avoid sleeping on your lashes. This can be hard if you are, um, not awake. Are you already a regular eyelash extension wearer and find you lose extensions on the outer corner of one eye in particular? Chances are that’s the side you sleep on.

– Don’t pluck out your eyelash extensions. If you have found a stray extension that has all but grown out, resist plucking it out. Lashes are similar to brows. Plucking can stop regrowth. So this is a big no no. Instead, use a clean mascara brush or a sealant and keep it swept into place until it grows out or until your next infill appointment.

– Use a sealant. Sealants protect the extensions from oils, air pollutants and dust. Using a sealant with a mascara brush applicator will also sweep and position lashes that are growing out back into place. Black tinted sealants are great for brown or blonde regrowth. Pro tip; dab excess sealant from brush before applying.

– Choose lash extensions that your natural lashes can support. If you have fine natural lashes and wear lash extensions regularly choose lashes that are light such as lashes with a small width, shorter lashes or volume lashes which use fans of very fine lashes. Lash extensions with a much greater weight to the natural lash could cause your natural lashes to shed prematurely and this can cause thinning out. Your natural lash cycle is approximately 60 days.


Eyelash extensions come in a spectrum of different curls, thicknesses and lengths. A good lash salon will have a wide range of lashes to customise a lash set that best brings out the beauty in your face. Time to break it down:

Lash Extension Curls

J – The softest of curls J curl provides a subtle, natural look.

B – A stronger curl than a J, B curl is popular and suits most faces.

C – Ideal for more lift. Lash extensions are more visible from front on. A popular curl.

D – A stronger curl for a glamorous look

L – Looks like an L in shape with a soft curve at the bend. An L curl provides lift to natural lashes that angle down.

Lash Extension Thicknesses

Volume 3D lash widths are most commonly 0.07mm and 0.10mm. Classic Sets 0.10mm, 0.12mm and 0.15mm are most often used. For one off sets or for stronger natural lashes 0.18mm or 0.20mm may be used.

Lash Extension Lengths

Lash Extension Lengths ranged from 6mm to 18mm in length. Most clients get a lash length approximately 30% longer than their natural length. This means there is not too much weight on the natural lash and because the inner lashes are shorter, the eyelash extensions used on these are shorter too.

Lash Material

Silk – Glossy and smooth

Faux Mink – Lighter than silk and matte

Real Siberian Mink – We would never use real mink in our salons. Don’t believe it if someone tells you the real mink lashes they use are from ethically farmed mink. This is not true. In addition, using real fur could trigger allergies you may not be aware you have. Real mink does not hold it’s shape.

This is not a definitive list. New curls, thicknesses, materials and styles are being released each year.
