Lashes of Scottsdale
Eyelash extensions are a wonderful addition to your beauty routine. Eyelash extensions are a weight-less, a semi-permanent enhancement shaped like a single eyelash. Extensions are available in a variety of widths, lengths, and curls (and colors). Each individual extension is adhered to a single, natural lash. During your initial Classic full set we shall apply 90-120 lashes per eye giving you a beautiful, full, natural lash line.
It is critical that each extension is attached to one, single natural lash. This procedure allows each natural lash to grow on its own growth cycle. The average person has approximately 150-250 natural lashes on their upper lid and 40-85 lower lashes. An individual eyelash hair’s life cycle is approximately 144-166 days before it sheds. Normally we loose 3-5 lashes per day. Understanding our bodies are constantly regenerating and growing; each extension is placed on an individual natural eyelash hair to allow for this process to continue, without feeling pain or irritation.
At Lashes Of Scottsdale, we have high expectations. We demonstrate an exceptional level of execution in our applications and use premium products to achieve beautiful results. We love doing your lashes as much as you love your lashes. We strive to give you the best results for your dollar, and this can only be ensured by not going over another salon’s work.
Classic Lashes are placed one extension per one natural lash.
After five weeks please schedule an appointment. You will need to return for a full set.
Your new eyelash extensions are fairly maintenance free. The general rule of eyelash extensions is “The less you touch them, the longer they last”.
There are a few other guidelines to keep in mind:
The largest enemy contributing to extension loss are: Oils, Parabens, PEG (polyethylene glycols) and Glycols (Butelyn Glycol). Oils can come from our fingers or from the products we apply. Avoiding direct contact with oils and these derivatives of oils will help maintain longevity of your lash extensions.
After each appointment, avoid moisture, steam and eye make-up for 24 – 48 hours. This means: avoiding exercise, steam from a shower, sauna, raindrops, or tears from an emotional movie.
After 48 hours: Always use eye make-up remover, cleansers, and facial products free of Oil, Paraben, PEG (polyethylene glycols) and Glycols (Butelyn Glycol). **Think about your shampoos and hair conditioners’ too. Do they contain Moroccan Oil, coconut oil, or macadamia nut oil? Do not have these products rinse into your eyes. They will contribute to breaking down your extension adhesive bond.
Every evening: Cleanse your lashes with a lint-free wand. The adhesion point is rough, and lint from a towel or a q-tip may get caught in the bond and cause irritation to your eye. Your extensions are placed 1mm away from the root of your natural lash at your lash line. We all know 1mm is very small. There is a possibility dead skin, debris, or make-up may accumulate in this small space and cause damage to your natural lash. Damage can be prevented by thoroughly cleansing your lashes on a DAILY basis.
Avoid any long-wearing, waterproof eyeliners and mascaras. If you must wear liner on your lower lid, please let us know so we may advise one which pairs well with your new extensions.
Schedule timely perfection session (fill-in) appointments with your stylist to maintain your beautiful extensions. Everyone loses their hair at different rates; typically our clients schedule their appointments every two weeks to avoid any large gaps in their lash line.
Alert your other personal care providers such as Estheticians, Facialists, and Massage Therapists. Do not let them use their oil-based (Paraben, PEG (polyethylene glycols) and Glycols (Butelyn Glycol)) products over your eyelash extensions! Ask them to kindly place lint-free eye pads over your eyes when performing their steam and facial massage services.
Avoid intense heat (yes, possibly a hair dryer) and steam. This goes for our bronze tanning bed beauties: be sure to wear eye protection while in the tanning booth. Your extensions are delicate and if under enough heat or steam may prematurely shed or worse, become crinkly at the ends.
We all have a natural hair shedding cycle. Especially when the weather turns warmer or cooler, the hair on our bodies reverts to a primitive status where we shed or grow hair according to the seasons. Sometimes we shed more times than others; as do our lashes. This is a normal process.
Do not use an eyelash curler on your extensions – you will break the adhesive bond and your beautiful, new extensions will shed.
Always use LINT FREE wands to clean your extensions. Do not use wipes, Q-tips, or cotton around your extensions.
