Introduced to the lash industry in 2015, these lashes will produce a much fuller look without the extra weight. Existing eyelash extensions are designed to be cylindrical, whereas these new lashes are “squashed flat” therefore making the surface area wider and giving the appearance of a thicker extension but without the extra weight.
This treatment is popular for those who wish to upgrade their classic look for something more glamorous.
Classic Flat Lash Full Set* | £65 (1 hour 30 minutes) Eyelash extensions will be custom selected to suit you, your treatment will begin with a full client consultation. Your treatment will be pain free and relaxing , with many clients falling asleep. Results will vary from client to client. We may need to mix classic and flat lashes to create the look you desire. The application of eyelash extensions requires a “platform” of existing natural eyelashes to work off. We can only apply extensions to healthy natural lashes, we will refuse to apply something that your natural lashes cannot support, nor can we apply extensions to the skin or eyelid.
Infill | £35 (1 hour) These lash extensions will shed with your natural lashes and after 2-3 weeks you will need an infill to replace the ones you have lost. At your infill appointment we will ensure your lashes are full and looking as fabulous as your first full set.
Lower lash extensions | £20 (30 minutes) Extensions can also be applied to your lower natural lashes for that extra WOW look. We can cover around 90% of your lower lashes to create a darker, fuller look. Your natural lashes cannot be tinted whilst wearing extensions so lower lashes are great for clients with fair natural lashes. No need to apply mascara!
Removal | £20 (15-30 minutes) Should you wish to remove these lashes or have a break, please do not attempt to do this at home! We will be happy to safely remove them using a professional solution and a lot of care; your natural lashes will be in perfect condition.
Lash upgrade If you are currently wearing our classic semi permanent eyelash extensions you are able to upgrade to flat lashes or volume lashes. These extensions will be gradually mixed in with your current full set. Should you wish to do this please let us know so that we can adjust the timing of your appointment.
Patch Testing Cyanoacrylate contained in lash adhesives is the most common reason for reaction to lash extensions. It is an irritant for your skin, eyes and respiratory functions. For this reason lash adhesive should not touch the skin. For many years we have followed the old-school method of patch testing. However this is not clear indication if a reaction will occur as during the treatment adhesive will never touch your skin.
If someone is allergic to Cyanoacrylate unfortunately you will not be able to have lash extensions applied.
A patch test does not give you full exposure in the same way a full set would. Lash adhesive allergies are cumulative (meaning they build up over time). It is unlikely that a client will already have an allergy to cyanoacrylate if they have not previously been exposed to this.
What about our insurance policy? Well in short they advise we follow our manufactures or suppliers guidelines. LashBase patch testing guidelines are as follows:
we are not required to patch test lash extension clients
we must fully inform each client of the potential risks involved with lash adhesive reactions. This must be documented and signed by the client and lash artist to confirm they understand and are happy to go ahead. The client should be offered the option for a patch test if they have any concerns.
we must follow our insurers guidelines.
Upon booking your lash extension treatment here at The Lash Lounge, you will be given up to date information regarding lash adhesive and patch testing. Once you have been informed, it is your decision as to wether you would like to have a patch test before proceeding with your treatment.
If you would like to have a patch test before your treatment we advise this to be carried out around 48 hours before your treatment. If you do not wish to go ahead with a patch test you will be required to sign a form stating this. Please note no treatment will be carried out without you agreeing to all of our points relating to patch testing.
