What to Expect During Your Lash Extension Appointment


Your first lash extension appointment is an exciting experience. Here's what you can anticipate:

  • Consultation: Your lash technician will start by discussing your desired look, lifestyle, and any allergies or sensitivities. This conversation helps customize your lash extensions for the best results.

  • Lying Down Comfortably: You'll lie down on a comfortable treatment table with your eyes closed. This is your time to relax and enjoy some self-care.

  • Isolation and Application: The technician will use tweezers to isolate each natural lash and apply a single extension using a safe, hypoallergenic adhesive. You'll feel little to no discomfort during this process.

  • Duration: The procedure typically takes about one to two hours, depending on the desired look and the number of lashes being applied.

  • Aftercare Instructions: Your technician will provide you with lash aftercare instructions to help maintain your lash extensions and ensure they last as long as possible.


How to Prepare for Your Lash Extension Appointment


Preparing for your lash extension appointment is straightforward:

  • Arrive Makeup-Free: Come to your appointment with a clean face and no eye makeup. This allows the technician to work on a clean canvas.

  • Plan Your Schedule: Lash extensions require some time, so ensure you have a few hours free from interruptions.

  • Avoid Caffeine: Limit caffeine intake on the day of your appointment, as it can make your eyes flutter, making the process more challenging.

  • Ask Questions: Don't hesitate to ask any questions or express your concerns during the consultation. Your technician is there to address your needs and ensure your comfort.
