How to Prepare
For Your Lavish Lashes
Congratulations on scheduling your Lavish Lashes® appointment!
*Individuals who are marketing the Lavish Lashes® Brand are required to be certified in eyelash extension basic technique and safety and are committed to following our best practices and high standards for consumer safety. We hope you have a very Lavish experience. Here are some tips on how to prepare for a Lash Extension Appointment.
Minimize Allergy Concerns
Individuals exposed to a known allergen prior to their appointment, i.e., seasonal allergy or pet allergy being the most common, may be more likely to experience an allergic reaction to the eyelash extension adhesive. It is recommended that you consider taking an oral and/or ophthalmic (eye) antihistamine prior to your appointment.
Caffeine and stimulants may put you in an agitated state, preventing you from becoming still and relaxed during your appointment. Refrain from consuming caffeine and stimulants before your appointment.
Complete the Client Intake & Consent Form
First and foremost, expect to undergo a consultation with your Certified Lavish Lashes® Stylist to determine whether you are a good candidate for eyelash extensions. Because the consultation and paperwork can be time- consuming, it helps if you arrive 15 minutes early for your appointment.
Note: The application process can take a while; a full set (50 – 80 extensions per eye) can take anywhere from 1 hour and 15 minutes to 2.5 hours, and touch-ups (15 – 35 extensions per eye) can take about 30 – 60 minutes.
During the consultation, you will be presented with two forms; the Client Intake Form and the Consent for Eyelash Procedure Form. It is essential that you fill out the Client Intake Form truthfully, so any preexisting conditions can be taken into consideration. Certain illnesses, injuries, medications, allergies, and hormone imbalances or fluctuations might not make you a good candidate for the procedure, in that you may be prone to premature eyelash loss. Your lash stylist will thoroughly go over your answers and discuss with you your suitability for the application.
Signing the Consent for Eyelash Procedure Form indicates that you acknowledge awareness of any risks involved, waive all liability, and permit the use of any pictures taken before, during and after the procedure. Additionally, bring a list of all your allergies, including allergies to adhesives, band aids, or tape in general.
*Please note that if you are under the age of 18, a parent/ guardian must complete the Client Intake & Consent Form for you.
Remove All Eye Makeup
Avoid wearing eye makeup to your eyelash appointment. Remove mascara, eyeliner, and other eye makeup before- hand. Although the lash stylist will have eye cleanser on hand, removing eye makeup can be time-consuming and take away from your lash extension application time. Also, avoid curling your lashes ─come with your lashes in their natural state.
Remove Your Contact Lenses
Bring a contact lens case and saline solution to your ap- pointment, if you wear contact lenses. As a safety precau- tion you will be required to remove your lenses before the lashes are applied. Wearing contact lenses while getting lash extensions is a safety issue and may be uncomfort- able. After the lashes are applied, you can put your contact lenses back in, or if more convenient, just wear glasses to your appointment.
Other Considerations to Make Your Appointment More Enjoyable
Dress for Comfort
For appointments longer than an hour, you may want to wear clothes that are comfortable and allow you to lie down in a relaxed, non-restricted manner. Treatment room tempera- tures are usually constant, but it does not hurt to bring a light sweater just in case. Wearing comfortable clothes during your session can help optimize your special “me-time” and enhance your experience. Also, to prevent un- necessary discomfort, avoid wearing large dangling earrings or wearing your hair in a ponytail or bun.
Bring Soothing Music
Bring a headset and audio player so you can listen to music while the lashes are being applied. Although many eyelash extension customers fall asleep during the procedure, music can help enhance the relaxing experience provided by your Lavish Stylist.
Turn Your Cellphone Off
Silence your cell phone before your eyelash extension session. While the lash extensions are being applied, your eyes need to remain closed. A ringing cell phone can be a distraction and trigger the urge to open your eyes unexpectedly.
