CLASSIC LASH EXTENSIONS
Delicate mink-style synthetic lashes, custom matched to your own natural curl and thickness, are grafted with specialised glue on to each individual natural eyelash on a hair-by-hair basis. The size of your eyelid, you natural lash shape and condition of your lashes will determine, to some extent, how many lashes can be applied and the speed at which they can be applied. The relaxing process involves laying down with eyes closed for 30-90 minutes.
Lash extensions require regular maintenance. Your natural lashes replenish every 60 days, thus touch ups or refills are required every 2 to 3 weeks in order to replenish the fallen lashes and keep them looking full. Your aftercare will also affect how long your lashes last, and it is important to follow your therapists instructions, and especially to avoid the use of traditional mascara or oil-containing makeup or removers which will dissolve the lash adhesive. Refills take approximately 30-45 minutes and include lash maintenance.
In comparing salons, remember to ask how many lashes per eye you should expect to get with a full set (some lash technicians who offer full sets only apply 30 lashes per eye - we offer up to 100 in a full set). Please also remove all eye makeup prior to the appointment so that we can spend more time applying lashes, rather than cleaning them.
An eyelash tint will be required for fair lashes as the natural lashes will still be visible post-extensions. Please tint the lashes at least 48 hours prior to avoid interaction with the lash extension adhesive.

SPECIALLY FORMULATED HOMECARE FOR LASH EXTENSIONS
Generally, waterproof mascara, oil-based mascaras and eyeliners, and oil-containing cleansers will weaken the bond of the lash extensions. Use our gentle eye make-up remover and/or remover towel for makeup removal. Always remove eye shadow in a side and upward movement, not down onto the eyelash extensions. Wiping down towards the lashes will cause a build up of makeup on the lashes and may lessen the life of them.
CLEAN MASCARA WAND IN CASE
These mini wands are great to use daily to brush the lashes into shape. Replace every few months for hygiene.
CLEAR FINISH GLAZE
This optional product is applied to give sheen to the lashes. The glaze adds lustre, conditions, and tames the lashes to maintain their shape.
LASH EXTENSION BLACK MASCARA
This specially formulated mascara can be used if you still feel the need to wear mascara. This mascara is water-washable and will not compromise the lash extensions bond. It should be applied to the tips of the lashes only, and can be used on the lower lashes. *Do not use standard mascaras or makeup removers with Lash extensions as they will dissolve the lash adhesive.
REUSEABLE MAKEUP REMOVER CLOTH
A special fibre-free makeup remover cloth that can be cut into many pieces for longer life. Removes eye makeup and mascara without damage to lashes. Use with water or oil free makeup remover.
OIL-FREE MAKEUP REMOVER
Lash extension-friendly. *Do not use standard mascaras or makeup removers with Lash extensions as they will dissolve the lash adhesive.
PRE AND POST CARE FOR LASH EXTENSIONS
Lashes need care to protect your investment. It is necessary to avoid or modify some products and processes as they will loosen the adhesive bond of the extension, spoil the effect and/or shorten the life of your lashes.
- For the first 24 hours avoid getting the lashes wet to allow the glue to completely dry.
- Do not use a steam room or sauna for the first 48 hours to allow glue to cure.
- Be gentle and respect your new lashes. Avoid rubbing your eyes and do not pick and play with your lashes.
- Resist the temptation to touch or pull at your new lashes as this may pull out your own natural lashes.
- Avoid getting lashes caught on clothes and cloths/towels.
- When drying your face do not "rub" it, instead blot your face and apply a gently pressure to your closed eyes then allow the extensions to dry naturally. Don't try to dry them with a towel or hair dryer.
- Do not perm, tint or curl the extensions using a clamp or heated eyelash curler.
- Avoid wearing mascara or glaze unless necessary as this will lessen the life of your extensions. Even Lash Extension mascaras/glaze are is better left for special occasions.
- Do not use eye make-up remover that contains any type of oil product, such as petroleum.
- Avoid oily or waterproof eye liner pencils or eye makeup. We recommend liquid liners over oily/waxy pencils.
- Do keep the eye area clean. This is very important. Some ladies love their lashes so much they don't even want to get them wet at all. Avoiding proper hygiene can result in an eye infection whether wearing eyelash extensions or not.
- Try and sleep on your back to avoid crushing your extensions in the pillow.
The golden rule for wearing eyelash extensions is the less you touch them the longer they will last. However, it is important to keep the eye area clean.
HEALTH AND SAFETY FOR LASH EXTENSIONS
Lash extensions are considered safe when application is undertaken by a trained professional. All lash technicians at MISS FOX are experienced and certified lash technician trained in the correct technique needed to apply the lashes safely and without irritation to the eye or skin. The surrounding eye area is secured and well protected with soft adhesive pads or tape. The eyes are closed throughout the whole procedure.
The lash extension is applied on the natural eyelash, approximately 1mm from the eyelid so neither the glue or the lash has contact with the skin. The bonding agent is extremely strong and should not touch the skin. Lash extensions applied too close or touching the skin are an irritant and represent incorrect application.
It is important to have your lash extensions applied by a qualified operator who uses a quality product. Lash extensions at MISS FOX are light and put the same pressure on the lash as wearing mascara. You must avoid pulling on the lash extensions. The eyelashes have a cycle and lashes are constantly being replaced, just like your hair. If you pull so hard on an extension lash and pull out your own natural lash, there will be no new lash ready to grow to take its place, and you would need to wait 6-8 weeks for the lash to grow back. Please always treat your lashes with care.
The lash glue and remover have a very low incidence of allergic reaction as they do not technically touch the skin. Whilst we take great care to ensure that the adhesive and adhesive remover do not come in contact with the skin or eyes, in some individuals who are particularly sensitive they may find that the fumes or microscopic residues of the adhesive or removal products still irritate eyes or the surrounding area. In these cases the lashes should be removed immediately for safety. The smell of the glue can be slightly irritating to very sensitive noses or eyes.
Lash extensions may not suit you if:
You often rub your eyes due to allergies such as hay fever, or out of habit (this will cause lashes to fall off or twist).
In the past you have experienced sensitivity around the eye area after using skin care or makeup, or you generally have sensitivity around the eye area (you may be sensitive to the application process or cause stress to an already sensitive area).
You use prescribed medicated eye drops or ointment (this may coat the lashes and cause them to clump).
You have very curly eyelashes (it will be difficult to glue an extension on).
You don't want to change your current makeup or cleansing routine (without the correct home care lashes will not last).
You live or work in an environment that exposes you to a lot of heat or oil (eg. kitchens with fryers, or work that requires heavy creams or makeup on the face that can travel to the lash area).
You have naturally oily lashes or eyelids (excessive natural oils can weaken the adhesive bond).
If you are unsure please contact MISS FOX to discuss.
