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.
