Eyelash extensions have become very popular in the past few years. Even if you haven’t tried them yourself, you would know of someone who has and seen plenty of people every day who have.
The experiences everyone has with the best lash extensions in Melbourne is different and our expectations (both good and bad!) for our own lash appointment can end up skewed!
These myths can make us nervous about our appointment, so I’m here to bust 5 of the most common ones for you!
The great thing about lash extensions is that when done and cared for correctly, your lashes will stay healthy!
Qualified and experienced eyelash extension artists in Melbourne will be dedicated to maintaining the health of your eyelashes and will use techniques that are safest. This includes things like choosing suitable eyelash extensions for your eyes in Melbourne, the way in which the extensions are applied (or removed!), and the aftercare instructions you are given.
Before making an appointment, I always recommend doing your research first! Not only on eyelash extensions themselves but a certified lash artist you choose to do them! Not all lash artists are the same, so take your time before deciding who to book with!
Have you ever gone into your appointment with reference photos, but the outcome isn’t quite what you expected? This is because our lashes are completely unique to us, and should be treated as such!
Our eye shape, the length of our eyelashes, and the number of eyelashes we have is different to the next person. The things that make your eyes individual and unique contribution to why we aren’t always able to replicate a referenced eyelash extension set. To ensure the health and safety of your lashes, we will customise the length of the eyelash extensions we choose and how we blend them along with your eye.
The things we consider are the length of the best eyelash extension, the thickness, and the overall style of the set we desire in Melbourne.
Choosing a suitable selection of eyelash extensions will massively contribute to whether or not extensions cause damage to your lashes. Before your appointment, discuss your options with your eyelash artist and we can find the perfect selection suited to you. Not only will you know what to expect before you open your eyes, but you’re sure to love what you see too!
It’s not talked about as commonly as the difference between classics, hybrids or volumes, but there are individual sub-styles to these styles of eyelash extensions.
The variation in extensions comes in the lengths and thicknesses of the eyelash extensions, but the way we map out the eyelash extensions as well.
Our eyelash extension artist will create the most flattering look for you, we can map and style and do a number of things. We can elongate the eye, open it up and lift, and so much more!
At Ardour Brows and Lashes, our artists will work with you to decide what is most flattering by assessing your natural eyelashes and then taking into consideration your eye’s shape and size, and the shape of your face. Whilst you might just want a bit of extra length, have a think about what else you might want to achieve with your eyelash extensions. Our eyelash extension artist will discuss this with you at the beginning of your appointment and give their recommendations too!
Whilst you can’t do your own refills, maintaining your lashes doesn’t stop when you leave your appointment with the best eyelash extensions in Melbourne! Aftercare in the coming days and weeks will impact the overall appearance and longevity of your lashes (bonus: proper lash care makes your lash artist’s job easier, and it may even save you money!).
Proper care in between appointments will keep your eyelashes looking fabulous, and it will prevent any nasty consequences that come with a lack of care, such as infections, and even eyelash mites.
Uncared for eyelashes can mean your artist will spend more time prepping your eyelashes for application than doing the application itself. When this occurs, your appointment time (and price) may increase, or you might have to come back again to complete the work.
The more care you put into your eyelash extensions, the less work there will be to do at your next appointment. Your eyelashes (and your purse) will thank you for it, especially in the long run!
Ask your lash artist in Melbourne for aftercare advice, and do some googling for any extra aftercare tips!
This can be broken down into a few parts, but overall your eyelash extensions should not be painful or causing discomfort!
Both the appointment itself and afterwards should be relaxing and an overall comfortable experience.
Eyelash appointments themselves are, or should be, a relaxing experience. Any discomfort during your appointment may be due to the eye pads moving and beginning to rub, fumes from the lash glue, or a couple of other things.
If any discomfort begins, let your artist know straight away so we can solve the discomfort for you and you can return to your relaxation.
Any irritation or discomfort after your appointment, providing that the eyelashes are applied correctly, isn’t normal! Consult with your lash artist or seek medical attention ASAP as it may be an allergic reaction.
Again, overall, you should find the application and wearing of eyelash extensions to be pleasant!
