Eyelash extensions are individual synthetic hand-made strands applied to each natural lash using an isolation method and a special adhesive.
If applied correctly, in a professional way, eyelash extensions will never damage your natural eyelashes. Being able to do this takes extensive practice, attention to details and a dedication to perfection. Be sure you trust the education and experience of the professional you choose.
Classic eyelashes are individually applied eyelash extensions, when one artificial eyelash is applied to one natural lash. We apply about 80-120eyelashes per eye, depending on the number of natural lashes you have.
The Russian Volume Technique (also known as 3D-6D lashes) This technique allows to adhere multiple number of finest grade artificial eyelashes to one natural lash. It is state-of-the-art technology, when several very thin separate extensions are picked manually into the lash fan and wrapped around the natural lash. Russian Volume technique helps us to achieve a fuller, denser and fluffier lash-line.
Definitely not, we recommend removing your contacts before the treatment but contact lenses can be put straight back into your eyes after your treatment.
If the lash extensions have been applied professionally and correctly, no need of resting required. We have several customers wearing Lashes for more than 3years without breaks and their natural eyelashes are in perfect condition!
No, your extensions will fall out one at a time over several weeks in a subtle shedding process. In general, it is normal to lose 2-3 natural lashes daily from each eye.
Infills are like touch-ups for your extensions. Performed regularly, they’ll keep your lashes looking full and luscious. You may need them more or less often depending on how well you look after your extensions, your natural lash cycle, and the style of your initial set. Typically, clients get infills every2-3 weeks, some clients need (or want) to come every 2 weeks. These clients either have a somewhat faster growth cycle, are a little rougher on their lashes, or just prefer their lashes at maximum fullness. However, some clients prefer to replace their full set every 4-6 weeks.
How long your extensions last depend on your personal lash shed and aftercare. As your natural lashes grow and shed, the extensions will grow and shed with them. In most situations with the good aftercare around 2-3 weeks you must have about 40-50% of eyelashes remaining – and this time is perfect to do the infill. If you decide not to have one – the last lash might fall off after 6-8 weeks. However, after 4 weeks they will start looking sparse.
Wash your lashes daily (after the initial 24 hours) – once or twice a day. That is the regular hygiene each lash customer should follow. We recommend using lash shampoo and the brush. Apply the sufficient amount of lash shampoo to your lash line or the brush, move the brush from the lids towards the ends of your extensions brushing downwards. Rinse properly after.
Yes, you can choose a half set when you are short on time and want to have some eyelashes done or when you have few natural eyelashes. Please note that we do not infill half-set lashes after 3 weeks. Also, please take into consideration that depending on the amount of the natural lashes you have, the coverage of half-set will be 50-60% only.

You are advised to come to your appointment with NO make-up or at least NO MASCARA. This will allow for us to get started on application right away thus reducing the time it takes to clean your natural lashes.
Absolutely! Although the glue does not come in contact with the skin, there are rare occasions a reaction will occur. A mandatory patch test needs to be taken at least 24 hours before your appointment at which time a full client consultation will also take place.
It is recommended that you book four weeks in advance prior to your upcoming occasion, especially if you are a first time client.
Spray tan before lash appointment
We recommend you have a spray tan done 48 hours prior to the lash appointment. Tanning solution needs time to cure on the skin to give you the desire glow. This process take anywhere between 8-16 hours before you take the first shower to rinse away the excess tan and the stickiness if any remaining.
Clean lashes before your appointment will result in the best retention. We always emphasized on the important of aftercare. However prepping before your appointment is equally important.
Spray tan after lash appointment
You want to schedule the spray tan after 24 hour or more after your lash appointment. This will ensure the adhesive is fully cured.
Let your spray tan esthetician know and be careful around the lashes area. Some places would provide goggles to protect the lashes which is awesome! If not the esthetician will need to carefully work around them.
Although eyelash extension treatments are not contra-indicated (non invasive as it does not come in contact with the skin) with any application a very small percentage of clients will have an allergic reaction. Prior to your treatment you will get a consultation at which time if you have any allergies specifically relating to ingredients in beauty products you should notify your technician. If you experience any discomfort such as any sensation of burning, stinging, itching and irritation as well as visual symptoms like redness swelling bumps and blisters this could indicate an allergic reaction. Please contact your eyelash extension technician for advice.
I started my journey as a Lash Technician in 2011 and then I did a lash extension conversion course with Nouveau Lashes in 2014, and I was really happy with what I’ve learnt from the course and with the support I got. After the conversion course, I started to feel more confident in my skills, and I felt ready for the next step, so I decided to do my first volume course in 2015 and things progressed from there. One step closer to lash expert status!
It wasn’t easy at first, but nothing is easy first-time around. However, I found that practise makes perfect. I dedicated a lot of time and money into training, and I have seen improvements in my work, with each training course I’ve attended. I’ve always been motivated as a lash technician, especially because the outcome of the training has been so amazing!
I’m not going to lie, it can feel like you’re juggling your tasks sometimes, especially when I started to work from home doing lash treatments, because I also had my little one around me a lot. It was only when I looked at how I was managing my time, that I started to feel more in control, then everything started fall into place and it became a little easier to manage everything.
With every passing year I feel like I’ve progressed, whether if it’s my skills that’s improved or if it’s my number of clients that has grown as a result of my work. My knowledge and understanding has broadened, allowing me to not only become a better lash artist, but a better lash trainer too.
Due to my hard work, I’ve been able to able to take different routes and steps in my career. For example, I’m now a trainer at London Lash Pro and I’ve had the opportunity to do lash treatments on high level influencers and Journalists from big magazine titles.
Looking at how I’ve progressed, I feel a great sense of achievement, especially when I think about the trophies I’ve won at lash competitions.
I’ve participated in nine lash competitions and placed in five of them, and like all competitions I completely enjoyed the overall experience. My first experience of entering lash competitions on the other hand was nerve-racking, but once you’ve done one, it doesn’t really faze you after that.
Of course! Winning trophies at lash competitions has given me the confidence to increase my lash service prices, as I know it’ll give confidence to prospective clients about the quality of my work. I would recommend entering a lash competition to everyone, because there’s always areas for improvement and with your score sheet, you can see which areas you excel in and which areas you need to make improvements.
I like the motto “if at first you don’t succeed, try and try again” In the end hard work does pay off, and you will slowly see this happen if you put 100% in.
