Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Classic, Russian and Mega Russian Lashes?


Classic application is 1 extension to 1 of your natural lashes. They can be very natural or as full as your natural lashes can allow. Russain application is a technique where the technician will create handmade fans for each of your natural lashes, the fans are usually made up of 2-8 lashes, each false lash is very thin so the fan will be no heavier than a classic extension. Your set can be as natural or as full as you like. Mega Russian application is the same technique as the standard russian but using even thinner lashes meaning there can be from 8 to 15 lashes in one fan. Each of your natural lashes will have its own handmade fan creating a dense 'mega' look.




How long will my lashes last?


On average we would advise getting infills every 2-4 weeks. How long your lashes will last depends on a few factors; your lash cycle; how you take care of your lashes and the enviroment. Everyone has a different lash cycle, some peoples lashes will grow faster than others meaning the extensions will not last as long. Some months our lashes will have a 'shed' so you may find one month your lashes will come out quicker than others. The enviroment can change how long your lashes last, for example; your lashes may not last as long when you go on holiday due to the hot humid weather. You can also help look after your lashes to ensure they have the best chance of lasting. Go to question 4 to see how.

How do I look after my new lashes?


1. Do not get your lashes wet for the first 24-36 hours. This means, trying not to wash your hair, avoiding steamy environments such as very hot showers, spas and saunas. After this time you can get your lashes wet. However, if you are getting them wet every day such as on holiday when you are getting in and out of a pool all day then they may not last as long, since you will be touching/wiping your eyes a lot more.

2. No oils. Avoid using a lot of oils on or around your eyes as oil will loosen the glue, oil free products are recommended, especially make up removers and moisturisers. We also have a lot of oils in our skin, so avoid touching them, the more you touch the more oils from your fingers will get on them. If you have particularly oily skin then try to control this as much as possible.

3. Clean your lashes. You can do this a few times a week with a foaming lash cleanser. Baby shampoo in very small amounts is also ok.

4. Do not pick or play with your lashes or rub your eyes roughly. If you do, you will be damaging your natural lashes.

5. Do not use mascara on your lashes. Not only will they make them look worse (especially on Russian volume as you will just be closing the fans) but the oils in the mascara will loosen the glue.

6. If you are a smoker please be careful when lighting your cigarette as large flames can singe the lashes.

7. A hard request as we cannot control what we do in our sleep.. but if you can, try and train yourself to sleep on your back and not on your face!
