Your First Eyelash Extensions
Getting your first eyelash extensions can be an exciting time as you dream about your new, longer, and fuller lashes. At Blink Lashes, our technicians will help make the experience as enjoyable as possible. We understand that a decision like this carries a little trepidation. But when you see the results, we know you will be pleased. Plus, you no longer have to worry about putting on mascara before leaving for work or when going out with friends.
What to do before your first eyelash extensions
Before you come into our salon, there are a few little things you need to know that will help make your experience of getting eyelash extensions even more comfortable and enjoyable.
Confirm Your Appointment
We want your first appointment at Blink Lashes to go smoothly, so please respond to our email or text confirmation. This lets us know that you will be on your way at the appointed time. Plus, if there is a change you want to make or information that you want to let us know, you can include that in your response.
If you are using public transportation or are just concerned about traffic, you can find out just how long it will take to reach our salon for the appointed time. At Blink Lashes, we understand it is taking care of the little things that makes the experience all the more enjoyable.
By coming in a little early for your appointment, you will have the time to fill out our consultation form. Plus, you can sit back and relax before your appointment starts. Arriving five to ten minutes early lets you sit back, relax, and be mentally prepared to have your new eyelash extensions applied.
If you have any eye makeup, we advise you to remove it before the appointment. This is because the extensions must be applied to bare, clean lashes. If you do not have the time, we offer a handy basin for you to remove your eye makeup.
Not only should you relax and be yourself, but we advise you not to add any strip lashes or falsies to your natural eyelashes as well. We understand that you want to make your desire clear about the size, length, and fullness of the extensions that you want. But it actually makes our job at Blink Lashes more difficult to complete.
The glue used for strip lashes can be difficult to remove, especially when the follicles are still small and new. The more we have to work at removing the glue, the longer your appointment will take and the less time we have to apply the eyelash extensions.
Hold Back on the Caffeine
Do not consume any caffeinated beverages such as coffee, cola, and the like for about four hours before you appointment. Caffeine tends to keep you less relaxed and makes the lashes flutter even more. The result is that your eyelash extensions become more difficult to properly apply. However, once you have completed your appointment, go ahead and enjoy your new extensions by celebrating with a latte.
At Blink Lashes, we want your first eyelash extensions to be as beautiful as possible. Which is why with a little preparation, you can really enjoy your new extensions.
