Lashes by Shavata - from consultation to aftercare
Lash extensions have become a go-to beauty solution, offering a way to achieve mesmerising eyes without the hassle of daily mascara application. From the initial consultation to the crucial aftercare routine, here's an insightful guide to help you navigate the entire lash extension experience.
- The Consultation: Crafting Your Desired Look
Before embarking on your lash extension journey, the Shavata Technician will ask whether these lashes are for a special event or an everyday look. This is the time to communicate your desired look, whether it's a natural enhancement or a more dramatic effect. The Technician will then customise the perfect set of extensions that complements your eye shape and personal style.
- Choosing the Right Type of Extensions
Lash extensions come in various styles, each has its unique characteristics, offering different levels of curl, thickness, and flexibility. During the consultation, your technician will guide you in choosing the most suitable type based on your desired outcome, lifestyle, and any potential sensitivities.
- The Application Process: Relax and Enjoy
The application of lash extensions is a meticulous process that requires precision and skill. During the procedure, you'll be comfortably reclined with your eyes closed. Individual extensions are delicately attached to your natural lashes using a safe adhesive. The experience is often relaxing, allowing you to unwind while the technician works their magic.
- Aftercare Essentials: Nurturing Your Lash Investment
After leaving the salon with your stunning new lashes, proper aftercare is crucial to maintain their longevity and ensure the health of your natural lashes.
- Gentle Cleansing: Use a lash-friendly cleanser to remove makeup, ensuring that the lash bond remains strong. Avoid oil-based products, as they can compromise the adhesive.
- Avoid Rubbing Your Eyes: Be mindful of not rubbing or pulling at your lashes. This habit can damage both the extensions and your natural lashes.
- Regular Brushing: using a clean mascara wand or a lash brush to gently comb through your extensions. This helps prevent tangling and keeps your lashes looking beautifully separated.
- Steer Clear of Waterproof Makeup: Waterproof makeup products can be challenging to remove without affecting your lash extensions. Opt for non-waterproof alternatives to simplify your cleansing routine.
- Temperature Caution: Exposure to high temperatures, such as those in saunas or steam rooms, can weaken the lash bond. If you indulge in such activities, consider protecting your lashes with a gentle shield.
- Mindful Sleeping Positions: Your sleep position matters. Sleeping face down can exert pressure on your lashes and cause premature shedding. Opt for sleeping on your back or side to preserve your lash extensions.
- Regular Maintenance: To sustain the fullness of your lash extensions, schedule regular infill appointments with your lash technician. This ensures any lost lashes are replaced, keeping your extensions looking flawless.
