You've finally taken a call to make it official with your eyelash extensions as you eagerly anticipate your new look, but you are still confused about the basics that one should know before an appointment. Look no further, as we have all the information you need regarding what to expect and how to get ready for your very first lash appointment. Now is the perfect time to book your appointment and obtain your first set of eyelash extensions.
What are Eyelash Extensions?Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent lashes that are hand-glued on top of your natural lashes. Lash extensions are individually adhered to your natural hair, as opposed to strip lashes, making them much more customized and realistic-looking.
Here’s all you should know before arriving at your lash appointment:
1. Clean Your Face and Lashes Perfectly Before Your Appointment
The adhesive won't adhere to the lashes adequately if there are any lingering oils or cosmetics on them. It is important to emphasize that you should not show up wearing eye makeup. Only a few minutes should be spent by your lash artist cleaning and preparing your lashes for the procedure. Both your money and the artist’s expertise and time could end up being wasted if you show up with make up residues.
2. Spare a Minimum of 3-4 Hours for the Appointment
A full set of lashes, also known as a fresh set, will be applied during your initial session, which will take between 2 1/2 and 3 hours to complete. It will take between 60 minutes and 2 hours to get your lashes filled or for a fill (also known as adding extra lashes to an existing lash set), depending on the style you want and the pace of the lash artist.
3. Remove Your Contacts.
Your eyes will be closed while having your eyelash extensions applied, so it's always advised to take off your contacts to keep your eyes comfortable and in a relaxed state. Being contact-free is a safety measure that guarantees you will have healthy eyes and lashes when you leave.
4. Don’t Wear Mascara
Stop wearing waterproof mascara three days before your appointment if you use it.
Even after thorough cleansing, the compounds in these products remain on your lashes. You might experience premature lash loss as a result of the extension adhesive failing to adequately attach to your natural lashes.
5. Wear Comfortable Clothing
Wear cozy, comfortable clothing because you'll be lying still for a while and want to feel as relaxed and warm as possible. Also, stay away from wearing anything bulky that could obstruct your lash artist, such as large dangly earrings, for instance.
6. Arrive on Time
Attempt to arrive at least 10–15 minutes early for appointments. This will allow you to complete any required formalities like paperwork without interfering with your appointment. It's also a fantastic opportunity to take a moment and consider any more inquiries you might have for your artist.

Despite the fact that it's always preferable to continue waxing throughout the winter, it's completely understandable why some people decide to take a break when they're covered up in multiple thick layers of clothing. You'll see more people making appointments at waxing salons as the winter comes to an end. This is a result of the springtime wardrobe transition. Women go from oversized hoodies and leather jackets in the winter to floral dresses, tank tops, and skirts in the spring. As you ditch your winter coats and embrace the pleasant weather, spring is the ideal time to resume waxing. Here are four reasons to head back to your hair removal routine again sooner than later:
1. Get Summer-Ready
Waxing is a continuous process. In fact, it is a process that improves with time. First-time waxing will make the skin more sensitive and prone to irritation, especially if you're not used to waxing. It can be a shock to your skin and cause some mild redness or irritation. When it's time to pull out the shorts, if you wait until the last minute, you can have the visible marks of newly waxed legs. By waxing now, you give any itch time to go away before the warmer weather arrives.
Beauticians or waxing technicians advise against the following because of probable irritation like itching, redness, and even allergic reactions.
This implies it's advisable to start your waxing routine earlier and allow your skin the time it needs to get used to waxing rather than waiting until the summer when you're likely to sweat more, go swimming, or take a vacation.
2. Smooth & Healthy Looking Skin
The dry air of winter can cause your skin to look unhealthy, drab, and harsh. More than just undesirable hair is removed during waxing. It takes off this top layer of dry, flaky skin to reveal the smooth, supple skin below. Regular waxing also promotes circulation and exfoliates dead skin cells. Your skin's cell growth and collagen production are accelerated by the increase in circulation. The final outcome? Smooth, moisturized, radiant, and fresh skin for spring that looks and feels ten times better.
3. Slow Hair Growth
When you remove hair at the root repeatedly by waxing, you interrupt the growth cycle and the hair follicles become weakened. This results in slower hair regrowth over time, meaning that you may find yourself needing to wax less often by the time summer arrives and it’s time to leave on vacation. Hair also becomes easier to remove which means more comfortable waxing sessions for you as time goes on.
4. Time to Rock Your Spring Wardrobe
What better way to show off your spring outfits than getting a good body wax? Start your waxing regimen in the spring to show off your skin with confidence and take full use of yourself.
Choosing the right place for your waxing is the most important tip. Glaminator Beauty Bar is dedicated to giving you the most relaxing and hygienic hair removal experience for your Spring festivities, summer vacations, and all seasons. You'll always be vacation-ready and able to say yes to any invitation if you wax all year long. Book an appointment with us today!
