Look here ladies, I'm no judger alright. My guilty pleasure is squatch hunting on the weekends when the rest of everyone I know is at the bar committing debauchery. But one thing I won't stand for is this load of....caca. When extensions are applied no technician PROPERLY trained and certified would put you or your natural lashes in danger. So ignore all the fake ads! Ya know, the ones with pictures of girls with actual lash extensions on faking insane results from their magic potions. Its fake and they're bashing us for their own glory. Phew! Glad thats out of the way. Now on to some legit information.
Our natural lashes shed anywhere between 2-5 a day! It's healthy and normal. It is why we call it Semi-Permanent Lashes. Your naturals will shed with or without them and by week three they're normally half gone (it's why rebooking every three weeks is important but I'll get into that later). I will admit that there are PLENTY of self proclaimed I-Watched-YouTube-Bought-My-Supplies-Off-EBay technicians out there! They're adhering women's lashes together and putting extensions on that are equivalent to gluing a 2x4 to a toothpick. It's insane! Don't be her! Don't be the girl looking for the deal of a century and forever getting scarred, it's not worth it. Even when they might by some miracle look ok from glancing at your reflection. I promise you that when I put you under my light it is horrendous(sad-face, mega sad-face). Experiences like that is what has given this service a bad wrap. Just remember, you get what you pay for and HONEY, you only get one set of eyes bubu. Be smart! When extensions are applied improperly and are stuck to one another your natural lashes are still growing underneath that mess. They are growing at different times and because of that, when Mary A starts growing she's yanking Mary B out of her seat lol. It gets ugly. So find a sweet dedicated LICENSED technician and stick to her. If you want a little insurance on that I always recommend my clients a serum to speed up the growing process. I retail Jessa Brow & Lash Serum as it is on the more natural side and is by far the most sensitive on the eyes. The results are amazing without all the normal side effects of others I've tried (i.e. itching & redness. Booo!). Serums are great for clients who don't normally have full lashes and like the look of a Classic Set, it sets a foundation for a fuller result. Its also very helpful in the beginning stages of our eyelash growth cycle. There are 3 and what serum does is speed up the first two so I can apply a substantial lash on them. Otherwise I leave those puppies alone until they're grown enough. Waiting till they're grown is important or they might be traumatized when they can't handle the pressure ( thats some serious life advice right there lol). Get what I'm sayin?
