Prior to arriving at your appointment, we ask that you thoroughly remove any mascara and if possible come free of all eye makeup. This gives us the best opportunity to get a clean adhesion.
Eyelash Extensions are single strands of synthetic fiber that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. A skilled technician will carefully apply an extension to an individual natural lash one by one for an enhanced and beautiful new look. Each application of eyelash extensions are customized to suit each individual. They are available in various thicknesses, lengths, as well as different curls. Your stylist will be able to talk to you about your options and ask questions to help determine the best look for you.
The bonding agent is the most important component of the eyelash application procedure, due to its impact on the longevity of the eyelash extension. Currently, the FDA does not regulate the practice of eyelash extensions because the extensions are applied to the natural eyelash and do not make contact with the skin. However, great care must be taken when working so close to client’s eyes. At Rainglow, the safety of our clients is our number one priority. We have in place, a safety standards policy which we follow at all times and review regularly.
The careful selection of the bonding agents and products we work with, sterilizing equipment before and after each treatment, protecting the eye area with special nonabrasive tape and eye pads and maintaining a clean and tidy work area, free of dust and clutter.
Very rarely do clients have a reaction to Eyelash Extension Adhesive. Glue allergy reactions usually occur within 48 hours. Should a reaction occur, you will need to get ALL THE LASHES AND GLUE IMMEDIATELY REMOVED BY YOUR LASH STYLIST.
These reactions show as:
*Inflammation of the eyelids
*Excessive redness or weeping/ watering of the eyes
*Burning that does not subside, skin scabbing on the eyelid and under the eyebrow
We recommend getting a touch-up every 2 to 3 weeks to maintain your desired look and fullness. All your natural eyelashes are at various stages in their growth cycle. This means that you can expect to see your eyelashes naturally shed and be replaced with the growth of a new eyelash. When you come in for your fill any extensions that are too far grown out or that may have fallen off through normal wear and tear, will be replaced. Everyone's experience will be different based on your individual cycle, your day to day activities, skin care products, and your cleansing routines.
Yes, but you won't need to! If you do choose to wear mascara, we
recommend using mascara which has been specially formulated to
be eyelash extension friendly. DO NOT USE OIL-BASED OR WATER-PROOF MASCARA.
Waterproof mascara or any type of oil based mascara can dissolve the bonding agent and shorten the life of your eyelash extensions causing them to fall out sooner. Care also needs to be taken in washing off the mascara completely, and when doing so only use oil free eye makeup remover. We do not recommend using mechanical eyelash curlers on your eyelash extensions as these curlers will damage the extensions and possibly your own natural lashes.
Yes! The bonding agent we use is waterproof and it allows you to shower, swim, exercise etc. Special care is required but overall the maintenance is low. We do recommend however that you do not get your new eyelash extensions wet for the first 12-24hrs after eyelash application. (ok to get a spray tan)
Yes, at any time for any reason! It is a simple procedure that doesn't take long and we have a specially formulated removal solution that will break down the glue and safely remove your extensions without damaging your natural lash. Please do not attempt to remove the lash extensions yourself as this can cause damage to your natural lashes.
The Lash Lift is a semi-permanent treatment that gives your natural lashes the look of perfectly curled lashes with added definition making them appear fuller and longer. It is a great alternative to eyelash extensions, as it requires very little maintenance and has long natural lasting results.
The Belmacil Lash Tint gives your lashes a long-lasting mascara effect without the hassle of smudging, running, or clumping lashes.
The processes are quite different. With eyelash extensions we are adding extensions what will grow and fall out with your natural lash cycle. With lash lifts you won't have to worry about getting fills when the extensions start to fall out. You can also still use mascara for even more volume or length. If you're looking for some definition without the commitment to continually update your extensions, a lash lift is the perfect solution.
The Lash Lift is for clients that are happy with the length and fullness of their natural lashes wanting the enhanced mascara look. Not recommended for chemotherapy clients or those who have sparse natural lash lines. Clients with blond, red, or light brown lashes. The dye is applied to the lashes to give it a darker, enhanced mascara look. The formula is nourishing, conditioning and formaldehyde free.
The procedure takes approximately 45-60 minutes.
Avoid getting your lashes wet for the first 24 hours. Avoid steam rooms and saunas; overall, refrain from all heat. Allow 24 hours before applying any type of product to your lashes. After 24 hours, you may apply mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow, or any type of makeup products.
Serums can cause complications for lash lifts for a number of reasons. Serums can extend the growth phase of the lash, this can have some differing results on your lifts. Please do not use any serum 24 hours before and after the service.
Your eyes are to remain closed during the entire process. A silicone rod (comes in S,M,L) is placed on top of the eyelids to determine which size silicone rod best suits your lashes to achieve the best lift. The lash glue (water-soluble & contains keratin) is used to push the natural lashes back onto the rod - a lash setting solution is applied then gets removed with a micro-swab and the lash neutralizer solution is applied. The tinting process will take place after the neutralizer is removed.
