What are Russian lash extensions?
A fan made up of several ultra-fine lash extensions is applied to each one of your own natural eyelashes. Therefore, this look can be as thin or thick as you desire, as long as your natural eyelashes are in good health. Please be assured that we will discuss this with you and manage your expectations before your treatment starts.
How long do they take to apply?
This treatment takes up to 1.5 hours. This is because all of your eyelashes have to be thoroughly isolated before each fan is applied. Your technician will be making each individual fan as they are applied. Don't worry it will be well worth your time!
How should I turn up to my appointment?
Please arrive with clean and makeup-free eyelashes - if not the removal will eat into your appointment time! You must not wear contact lenses to your appointment.
Will lash extensions damage my natural eyelashes?
No, all of our technicians are trained professionals who follow the industry guidelines. We are able to judge the health and potential of your eyelashes to ensure we only apply lashes that are the correct weight and length.
What aftercare should I follow?
Your lash extensions must be cleaned and brushed daily with the brush we give you at your appointment. A good product to clean them with is an oil-free micellar water.
Don't get in the shower or get your lash extensions wet within the first 24 hours.
To get the longest out of your lash extensions, try to avoid pools, saunas and steamy showers.
Avoid oil based products, including certain brands of makeup, face washes, and even some shampoo and conditioners, as this will break the glue bonds down and your lash extensions will fall off. Always check the ingredients!
To maintain your lash extensions you will need regular infill appointments. If you wish to stop wearing them, you will need to book in for a removal. Don't pull or pick!
