5 Top Tips
1.Having undergone an lash lift, the only product which can be used without fear of lashes losing their lift is the Elleevate mascara. This amazing product contains keratin, arginine, and biotin, promoting strong and healthy lash growth. However, ensure it’s removed with cold water within the 24 hour period.
2. As lashes are still malleable, sleeping on your back is the best position to avoid the lashes dropping on either side. You should also be careful when taking clothes on and off over your head, avoiding any contact with the lashes.
3.When returning to using facewashes, avoid products which are quite oily in nature as this can cause lashes to lose their lift prematurely.
4.Resist the temptation to touch the lashes during the first few days after treatment. This will help to maintain the ‘lift’ effect while settling into their desired new shape.
5.Keratin lash lifts last up to two months ( results may vary), so usually for the entire lifecycle of the eyelashes. Clients can come in for a top up to restore the long-lash effects.

Does waxing hurt?
There is some discomfort however if you take an aspirin or Tylenol prior to waxing it will help with any pain, make sure it is taken 30 minutes prior to your appointment so it has time to take effect.
Should I do anything before I come for a wax?
BE CLEAN!! Please try and come freshly showered!!
Hair needs to be at least ¼ to ½ inch long….10-14 day stubble
Caffeine and alcohol can create acidity in the body, making skin more sensitive. Try to abstain prior to service
Taking an Advil or Motrin ½ hour before the service can sometimes help with pain and inflammation
A gentle body scrub prior to service will help eliminate dead cells around skin pores and hair follicles, making your waxing service easier.
CHILL!!!…. mental preparation is the most important…..if you come in relaxed and ready to go you will have a much more pleasant experience!
Getting rid of the dead skin cells the days before your appointment will cut the sensitivity, keep your skin healthier and help keep ingrown hair away. Use a loofah or a scrub.
Try to refrain from exercising, swimming or tight clothing that may irritate the area within the first 24 hours.
Do not get any direct sunlight on the freshly waxed area within the first 24 hours.
Wait 24 hours and then gently exfoliate the area with your exfoliating gloves or loofah. Follow up with an ingrown hair product.
Doing this will help restore your skin’s suppleness and weakens hair follicles, inhibiting future growth. This will help banish bumps and ingrown hairs.
Continue to exfoliate daily so pores don’t get clogged, creating bumps and ingrown hairs.
If redness or swelling occurs, you can apply a 1% hydrocortisone creme to the area up to 3 times a day.
If large or deep bumps occur, applying a warm compress can help bring the hair up to the surface quicker
