BEFORE & AFTER CARE

-LASHES-

1

BEFORE YOUR  APPOINTMENT 

  1.  Avoid wearing strip lashes and mascara 24 hrs before your scheduled appointment.

  2. Avoid caffeine: Try to avoid consuming caffeine or other stimulants before your appointment, as this can cause your eyes to twitch or flutter, making it more difficult for the lash technician to apply the extensions.

  3. Avoid contact lenses: If you wear contact lenses, it's best to remove them before your appointment to avoid any discomfort or irritation during the process.

  4. Communicate your preferences: Before the lash technician begins the process, communicate your preferences for the length, thickness, and style of lash extensions you want. This will help ensure that you're happy with the final result.

  5. Wear comfortable clothing: During the appointment, you'll be lying down for an extended period of time, so wear comfortable clothing that won't restrict your movement or cause discomfort.

DURING YOUR APPOINTMENT

  1. Make sure to use the washroom before application starts to avoid wasting lash time during your appointment

  2. Do not touch/rub/pick at your lashes, if you feel itchy let your lash tech know so she can help you out accordingly. 

  3. It is important that you do not move around too much as lash techs need to be very steady while applying lash extensions. 

  4.  Avoid asking your lash tech to answer texts or phone calls while getting serviced.  You will end up wasting your own lash time. This will not be pretty when a full set cannot be completed.

AFTER YOUR APPOINTMENT

  1. Avoid getting your lashes wet for the first 24-48 hours after your appointment. This includes avoiding swimming, showering, or using saunas or steam rooms.

  2. Avoid touching or rubbing your eyes or lashes, as this can cause damage to the extensions and your natural lashes.

  3. Avoid using oil-based products on or near your lashes, as oil can break down the adhesive used to apply the extensions.

  4. Be gentle when cleansing your face and eye area. Use a gentle, oil-free cleanser and avoid rubbing your eyes or lashes.

  5. Brush your lashes regularly with a clean, spoolie brush to help keep them looking neat and tidy.

  6. Avoid using eyelash curlers or mascara on your extensions, as this can damage the extensions and your natural lashes.

  7. Avoid sleeping on your stomach or with your face pressed against a pillow, as this can cause your lashes to become tangled or bent.

  8. Avoid any type of heat close to your lashes. This can cause them to singe and lose their curl.

  9. Schedule regular touch-up appointments with your lash technician to keep your lashes looking their best.

-NAILS-

1

BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT

  1. Decide on the design and length:
    Acrylic nails come in different shapes and lengths. Decide on the design and length that you want before your appointment. This will help the nail technician to better understand your preferences.

  2. Remove old nail polish:
    Make sure to remove any old nail polish before your appointment. This will save time during the appointment and allow the nail technician to focus on creating your acrylic nails.

  3. Avoid using hand creams or oils:
    Do not use any hand creams or oils before your appointment. This can affect the way the acrylic nails adhere to your natural nails.

  4. 6. Bring a picture for inspiration:
    If you have a specific design in mind, bring a picture as inspiration for the nail technician. This will help them to understand exactly what you want.

  5. 7. Wear comfortable clothing:
    Make sure to wear comfortable clothing to your appointment. You will be sitting for a while, so it is important to be comfortable.

  6. 8. Be prepared to sit for a while:
    Acrylic nail appointments can take a few hours, depending on the complexity of the design.

AFTER YOUR APPOINTMENT

1. Be gentle until the acrylic is fully hardened:

Be careful with your acrylic nails for the first 24-48 hours after they are applied. Although liquid and powder acrylic nails dry in minutes, they are not very strong until the bonding process has been completed.

2. Keep them dry:
Acrylic nails can lift and become damaged if they are exposed to water for too long. Try to keep your nails as dry as possible and wear gloves when doing dishes or cleaning.

3. Moisturize your hands:
Although you should avoid using hand creams or oils before your appointment, it is important to moisturize your hands and cuticles regularly. This will prevent dryness and help to keep your nails healthy.

4. Avoid using your nails as tools:
Do not use your acrylic nails to open cans, pick at things, or as a substitute for a tool. This can cause damage to the nails and make them more likely to lift or break.

5. Get regular fills:
Acrylic nails grow out over time, and a gap can form between the natural nail and the acrylic nail. This is why it is important to get regular fills every two to three weeks to keep your
nails looking their best.

6. Protect your nails from heat:
Acrylic nails can become damaged if they are exposed to heat. Avoid using hot tools on or near your nails, such as curling irons or hair dryers.

7. Be gentle with your nails:
Try to be gentle with your acrylic nails and avoid hitting or banging them against hard surfaces. This can cause the nails to lift or break.
