Eyelash extensions are relatively new to the beauty industry and give you longer, thicker, more fuller looking lashes that if applied correctly, look completely natural. Extensions are perfect for everyday wear as well as special occasions. They are a must have for brides for beautiful photography and have the added bonus of not having to worry about any tears of emotion on the day smudging your mascara!
The individual eyelash extension is applied to an individual lash with a special bonding agent. At The Finishing Touch we use superior quality lashes and a medical-grade adhesive with low fumes. We also offer an adhesive for sensitive eyes.
The eyelash extension will last as long as the natural eyelash it is applied to. The natural eyelash has a lifecycle of about 6 weeks and when it falls out it will obviously take the extension with it. Over time small ‘gaps’ will begin to appear in your lash line which is when you can simply come in for a ‘top-up’ appointment.
Application takes approximately 90 minutes for a full set, top-up appointments can be 45 minutes or 60 minutes.
Our talented technician Briony is our Senior Technician and specialises in Volume Lashes. Anna-Lisa is our Lash Artist and specialises in Classic Lashes.
As your natural lashes grow in a replenishing cycle, your extensions will gradually fall out too. By following the aftercare instructions you will maximise the longevity of your extensions.
NO water or steam within 24hours. (Boiling jug, pots, steaming dishwasher, steam rooms, saunas, sweating) and then avoid steam rooms and saunas as much as possible thereafter.)
NO oil based products around the eye area.
NO tugging/ pulling the extensions.
NO tinting or perming on top of new Extensions.
If your lashes are wet from cleansing, showering or swimming. Dry them by blinking onto a tissue and/or use a fan or cold hair dryer. Brush your extensions when dry.
** If your extensions fall out excessively within the first week please contact the salon ASAP and we will book you to replace the missing extensions within 7 days. However this will be voided if aftercare instructions have not been followed.
DO NOT wear eye make up to your appointment,especially mascara as this will interfere with the adhesion of the eyelashes.
You may wish to wash your hair the night before your appointment as we recommend to keep your extensions away from water/steam for 24hours after your appointment.
