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.
