The do's and don'ts of Lash Lifting.
Do come in to your service on time, with clean eyes. We will always cleans your eye area before starting this procedure. Just remember! The more time your service provider spends cleaning your eyes, the less time they have to dedicate towards your service. So maybe pass on the water proof mascara that day.
You'll be so in love with your lash lift, you might feel like tossing it in the trash after anyway!
Do bring your makeup with you! You won't get the absolute best result if we don't cleans your eye area, so if you have somewhere to be after, you can touch up that concealer and foundation!
Do ask questions! We love sharing knowledge with our clients! So don't be afraid to ask. Take advantage of your time with your provider. You might just be in for a lift and tint, but if you notice your skin isn't cooperating with you lately, ask your provider about some spa treatments or options for at home! If they don't know, they'll find someone who does! We are a fountain of knowledge at Spa Haus Nashville and love giving our clients the time and attention they deserve.
Don't wear contacts! Bring your case with you and a pair of back up glasses for after if you have them! If by some chance solution gets into your eye, the last thing you want to do is trap it behind a contact lens!
Don't tamper with your lashes for at least 24 hours after your service! We want you to enjoy your lift and for you to get the maximum benefit, so don't get them wet or apply makeup, or lotion to your top lashes until 24 hours has passed. The lashes need time to set themselves in place. If you can avoid it, try not sleeping on your lashes that night either. We would hate for them to flatten out on you!
Don't use coconut or castor oil on your lashes! Doing so will result in the lift to fall! That being said, if you have a bit of curl left over on the ends of your lashes after 6-8 weeks, and you are wanting to get rid of it, grab up some of that oil. Brush it through your lashes once or twice a day, for about a week, leading up to your next lash lift appointment! You'll be glad you did!
Always remember to let us know on your paperwork of any allergies you may have! And if you tend to have watery eyes, let your provider know before the service starts, so that they can be prepared!
The lash lift lasts 6-8 weeks and your tint is going to last for about 3-4. If you are feeling I bit underwhelmed by your lashes after a few weeks, come grab a tint! It makes all the difference!
