How it’s done

Relax as you recline on a comfortable beauty couch with your eyes closed. As you won’t see what Julie’s doing, here’s a little peek.

Preparation

Julie starts by cleaning your lashes to remove any barriers that may come between the adhesive and your natural lashes. The lashes along your lower lash line are carefully covered with a specially formulated eye pad or tape to protect them from the treatment area. You then close your eyes for the duration of your treatment. She combs your lashes maps your lash design on the eye pads or tapes to direct where the different lengths and curls will be placed.

Treatment

Julie carefully isolates one suitable natural lash with fine pointed tweezers that hold other lashes away. She picks up the extension in another pair of tweezers and dips its base in the adhesive. She places it on the isolated lash, 0.5mm away from the eyelid so it points in the direction she wants it to sweep. This is repeated to create your style. You may have an average of 100 extensions on each eye, depending on the number of treatable natural lashes and the look you want. With Volume, it could be around 3-400 on average, depending on the number of extensions used to create each fan!

Place

Julie picks up the required eyelash extension in another pair of tweezers and dips the base in the adhesive. She then places it on your isolated eyelash, about 0.5mm away from the eyelid, pointing in the direction she wants it to sweep. That may not be the direction that your natural lash is pointing. This is where Julie can create a little magic with a range of techniques to make even the most unruly natural lashes appear well behaved!

Finishing Up

Julie meticulously checks that each extension is correctly positioned, bonded and free from its neighbours! She combs them and removes the eye pads or tapes from the lower lash line before inviting you to open your eyes and enjoy your treatment!

She’ll explain how to care for your lash extensions and you’ll receive an aftercare leaflet and a mascara wand to use as a comb.

Why You Need Infills To Maintain Your Look

You’ll shed an average of 3 eyelashes every day from each eye as part of a healthy replenishing growth cycle. As your natural lash sheds, it takes your eyelash extension or volume fan with it. This makes way for new growth that can be treated when it is mature enough. At an Infill, you should have at least 50% of your extensions left otherwise you will be charged for a new set.

This is what your eyelash and eyelash extension will look like when it sheds. You can see the host lash at the base (thicker part) on the right hand side.
