Not all salons are created equally so training and techniques differ dramatically from salon to salon. And no one wants to hear those 4 terrifying words:
YOUR… LASHES… ARE… DAMAGED…
But when too much glue, bad technique and/or cheaper quality products are used – damage will happen.
Until a few months ago, we accepted work from other salons. But it was difficult to do a consistent infill. Our lashes looked light, fluffy and natural in comparison to the poorly applied ones that were done elsewhere. The end results were uneven, unnatural and less than fabulous looking lashes. We realised it was serious lash re-hab that was needed, not an infill.
Too much glue causes several lashes to clump together at the root, and tangle. This makes it impossible to brush or get the tweezers through them to prep for the infill.
If we can’t isolate the lashes, we can’t apply one extension to one lash (which is the safest way to apply extensions – anyone doing other – RUN!!). Glue jammed clumpy lashes require intensive care, not an infill.
2 or 3 extensions have been applied to a single lash (see above – RUN!!) also requiring too much glue to hold them all together. These lashes need to be soaked off and removed immediately to stop the weight ripping your natural lashes out prematurely causing further damage.
If lashes are damaged after the soak off, ie, gappy or sparce, we suggest you wait a week or two before getting a new set to allow for regeneration. We will not apply extensions to the baby lashes growing out; they are not strong enough yet. But fear not dear lash addicts, your lashes have a cycle of about 6 weeks, so you are only ever 6 weeks away from full repair.
We also acknowledge that there are plenty of highly skilled technicians out there, so if the lashes have been applied correctly, we will happily infill them.
It is up to each individual salon to uphold integrity and maintain professional standards. At Elegant Lashes we take pride in our work and we want our clients to go out and flash their beautiful healthy, light and fluffy lashes at the world.
