Preparing for Your Lash Appointment
Make the most of your experience in a few simple steps
First Step Before Your Appointment
Lash Artist Consultation
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. The consultation and paperwork can be time-consuming, so it helps if you arrive 15 minutes early for your appointment.
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 pre-existing 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 shedding. Your lash stylist will thoroughly go over your answers and discuss with you your suitability for the application.
If you are under the age of 18, a parent/guardian must complete the Client Intake & Consent Form on your behalf.
How to avoid allergic reactions regarding eyelash extensions
Individuals exposed to a known allergen before their appointment are more likely to experience an allergic reaction to the eyelash extension adhesive. Seasonal allergies or pet allergies are the most common.
We recommend that clients consider taking an oral and/or ophthalmic (eye) antihistamine before the appointment.
Avoid caffeine and stimulants
Caffeine and stimulants may make you agitated, preventing you from becoming still and relaxed during your appointment. Refrain from consuming coffee, energy drinks, and similar before your appointment.
Remove all eye makeup
Avoid wearing any eye makeup to your eyelash appointments, like mascara and eyeliner. Although your lash stylist will have eye cleanser on hand, removing eye makeup takes valuable time away from your lash extension application time. Also, avoid curling your lashes and come with your lashes in their natural state.
Remove your contact lenses
Bring a contact lens case and saline solution to your appointment if you wear contact lenses. As a safety precaution, you will be required to remove your lenses before the treatment since wearing contact lenses while getting lash extensions is a safety issue and may be uncomfortable. After the lashes are applied, you can put your contact lenses back in, or if more convenient, simply wear glasses to your appointment.
MAKE THE MOST OF THE EXPERIENCE
How to make your eyelash extension appointment more enjoyable
Here are our top recommendations for making your eyelash extension appointment pass in a fly.
Dress for Comfort
Eyelash extensions take time. Wear comfortable clothes for lying down, relaxed, and non-restricted. Treatment room temperatures are usually constant, but it cannot hurt to bring a light sweater just in case.
Bring Soothing Music
Bring headphones for listening to music during the treatment. Although many eyelash extension customers fall asleep during the procedure, music can help enhance the relaxing experience provided by your Lavish Lashes.
Turn Your Cell Phone Off
Silence your cell phone or put it into airplane mode before your treatment. Let the people that matter know where you are so that you can keep your eyes closed, relax, and not be distracted by calls or notifications.
