Classic lashes- A method where 1 lash extension is glued to 1 natural lash. This method is also known as 1 to 1 or 1:1. Classic lashes are perfect for clients who already have a lot of lashes, but want to add more length. Classic lashes look more natural.
How long do they last?
Party lashes are designed to compliment your glamorous look for a special event. How you care for them after your event will dictate how long they last. They should last a week or more.
What is microblading?
Microblading or eyebrow micropigmentation is a new and very popular procedure. It is true, that unlike tattoo technique, a specially trained professional with the use of a hand tool performs microblading with a tiny blade and a high quality pigment ink. This technique is called hair strokes because it is supposed to mimic real hair by the injecting pigment under the skin at different angles. Includes 1 follow up appointment that takes up to 2.5 hours.
What is a Lady Brazilian?
Brazilian wax removes everything from the top to the bottom, including the butt strip. Some clients opt for a strip or triangle to be left on the top and the rest bare. It is completely up to you! *Prices & duration may vary based on service provider. Retouch - up to 8 weeks.
What should I refrain from for the first 24-48 hours post-waxing?
Waxing is very exfoliating to your sin and your pores are open. Tight clothing or underwear can resist airflow and ventilation to your pores causing them to clog. Your pores need to breathe! Other things to avoid are:
• Excessive sweating
• Steam rooms/saunas
• Hot tubs/hot baths
• Swimming pools
• Sun exposure/tanning beds
• Spray tans
• Heavy lotions
• Fragranced soaps/body washes
How often do I need to get waxed?
We typically recommend every 4 weeks. Yet some clients experience slower growth cycles while others experience faster growth cycles.
When, why and how often should I exfoliate?
Please refrain from exfoliating post waxing for at least 24 hours, your skin needs time to heal. Exfoliation is necessary to completely unclog your pores, prevent ingrown hairs and remove dead skin leaving your skin baby smooth. Exfoliating 3-4 times a week is generally the frequency most clients require to keep smooth skin. When you scrub the dead skin off of your skin, you are giving your hair room to grow above the surface, instead of below, causing an ingrown hair.
How long does the hair have to be?
Typically hair needs to be ¼-½ inch long or usually 2-3 weeks of growth without shaving or trimming. It is very important to have enough growth especially for your first Brazilian or bikini wax. If your hair is too short the wax will not properly adhere to the hair follicle and you will be asked to reschedule for a future date when the hair will be the appropriate length.
Why should I pre-book my next appointment after my wax?
We encourage you to make waxing a lifestyle that fits within your schedule. If you implement a wax regiment based on the 3 growth cycles of your hair, the follicle weakens and may eventually die, leaving you with no hair! Anything beyond 6 weeks of growth is the “hair rooting system” starting to rebuild itself and becoming stronger which makes it more painful for the client.
LASH LIFT & TINT
What is a lash lift?
It’s like a perm (but without chemicals like parabens or formaldehyde), for your natural eyelashes. It uplifts and curls them from the base of the lash, making them stand out and look longer. It’s often paired with an eyelash tint, to enhance the defining effect. When finished, your eyes look larger, your lashes look longer and fuller, and your entire face looks uplifted.
How do you care for lashes after a lash lift?
No water, cleansing product, or makeup can touch the lashes for 24 hours following the lash lift. After that time, you can use your normal mascara. An eyelash curler will not be needed, and the use of one could damage the lashes. Use mild products for cleansing and avoid rubbing or applying force to the lashes. (Using waterproof mascara is discouraged because removal can be too harsh.) Lashes can’t be exposed to heat for at least 48 hours after the procedure.
How long does a lash lift take?
Typically, 6-8 weeks. As it wears off, lashes gradually drop evenly and go back to their natural look. (If you use a growth serum on your lashes results may not last as long.)
Tell me all about lash and brow tinting:
Eyelash tinting is a simple cosmetic procedure that provides the darkening effect of mascara permanently. In this procedure, a dye is applied to the upper lashes, a process that can last 15 to 30 minutes. The dye is rinsed and washed with mild soap half an hour after application. The number of applications to be made is determined by the desired shade. Eyelash tinting should be done by a qualified professional in a salon to ensure proper eye protection.
Eyelash tinting is a fairly quick procedure. The whole procedure can take as little as 15 minutes. The effects can last for as long as four to six weeks. Though the lashes are permanently tinted, they usually fall out within a month or two. However, the tint does not wash out.
Eyelash tinting is an ideal cosmetic procedure for many people. While some women are allergic to mascara, the dye used in this procedure contains mild chemicals that do not irritate the eye. Women who wear lenses may find it difficult to put on mascara because it may get into their eye. In addition, women who are allergic to mascara may end up having teary eyes, which will result in a runny mess. This procedure offers a solution to all these problems. In addition, it helps you look well put together in every situation, whether at the pool, bed or in the morning.
Eyebrow tinting can complement the look of eyelash tinting. The two procedures are great options for both regular and special events. Eyebrow tinting can be a nice option when going for beach vacations. This procedure ensures that you have a touch of makeup that does not wash off while swimming.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT COLOR
It is important to choose the right color for your eyebrow. People with light colored hair will have light colored eyebrows. On the other hand, people with dark colored hair will have dark colored brows.
It is important to consider keeping your eyebrow tint within four shades of your hair color. In addition, consider choosing a color that will match your skin tone.
It is important to clean the area around your eyes before tinting your eyebrows. This is done to rid the area of oil and makeup. Wash your face thoroughly using facial soap and warm water. Apply witch hazel to your eyebrows and leave on for 20 minutes to dry. Cleanse your face and dry with a soft towel then apply petroleum jelly, above, under and on the sides of the eyebrows. Be careful not to apply the petroleum jelly on your eyebrows, as it will inhibit tint absorption by the eyebrows.
Facials – Add-ons
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion facials use a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand your skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer. This type of skin rejuvenation is used to treat light scarring, discoloration, sun damage and stretch marks. If you have fine facial lines or wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, uneven pigmentation, clogged pores, skin texture problems, or minor scars microdermabrasion is for you. If you have rosacea or acne, you may also benefit from microdermabrasion treatments.
What are Peels?
LASH’s facial peel is a light chemical peel that will enhance and smooth the texture of the skin. It is an effective treatment for facial blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven skin pigmentation. Peels will exfoliate the outer layers of dead skin, revealing a new skin layer with improved tone, texture and color.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a super effective exfoliating treatment in which a surgical scalpel is used to gently scrape off any dead skin cells on the surface of your skin and (along with the peach fuzz on your face). Dermaplaning leaves your skin brighter, smoother, glowing, and more youthful.
