Eyelash extension options | What would work best for me?

I get asked all the time by new clients about the differences between Classics, Volumes and Hybrids and what would work best for them. The truth is; THEY ALL LOOK AMAZING! But, they do offer quite different looks, so I thought I’d put together some information about each option to help you choose.

Tlapa de Comonfort Classic lashes – Just a little bit extra
• 1 lash applied to each of your lashes
• A more ‘natural’ look, enhancing what you have rather than really boosting volume
• Great for those with lots of natural lashes

träffa tjejer i bo-svennevad Volume lashes – for that full Vavoom look
• Fan of three thin lashes applied to each of your lashes
• Creates a more dramatic impact than classics while still giving you a naturally full and fluffy look
• Great for those with not many natural lashes who want a fuller look or those who still have a lot of natural lashes but love them to look bold

buy Lyrica in uk Hybrid lashes – I want them full but not too much
• Mix of both classics and hybrids to each of your lashes
• Gives you a look pretty much smack bang between classics and volumes – less dramatic than volumes but more vavavoom than classics.

Regardless of which lash option you choose, I will always work with your eye to use the right length lash in the right place to help you get the look that you are after. Keep in mind that this may change from visit to visit and that is completely fine too! You might have a wedding to go to one visit and want something slightly more natural and demure, and next visit have a birthday party and want to look a bit more dramatic and full. I am always happy to work with you to achieve the perfect look for you at the time!
As always ladies, any questions, please ask!!

Ultimate Lash Care | Extend the life of your lashes

Looking after your lashes in-between visits is so important to get as much life out your lashes as you can! I’ve put together some tips to help you along the way..

Stay away from water for AT LEAST 24 hours. Avoid wetting the eye area or cleansing near the eyes. Steam may also affect the adhesion of your fresh lashes so stay clear of saunas, spas & baths. The reason for this is that it takes 24 hours for the glue to fully cure so it is important to keep them dry while this occurs.

This is an example of what happens to fresh glue if it is not left to cure for the full 24 hours.

Be gentle with your lashes. Try to avoid sleeping on your face. If you sleep on one side you are always going to lose more lashes on that side than the other. Silk pillow cases can help with this. Do not use an eyelash curler. If you are wanting your lashes to look more curled, speak to me at your next appointment and we can use a slightly different curl for your next set.

Avoid all oil around your eye area. Oil will make the glue come unstuck. No mascara should really be used on lash extensions. However, if you do feel the need to use it on the ends of your lashes, make sure you DON’T use waterproof mascara. Waterproof mascara is too hard to get off and you’ll end up pulling on your lashes, potentially pulling them out, resulting in damage to your natural eyelashes.

Keep them clean! It is so important to keep your lashes clean in between visits. Sometimes simply getting them wet and washing them with water is enough. (After the 24 hour dry time). If you are finding you need a bit more of a clean, let me know at your next appointment and I can order you some cleanser, specially formulated for eyelash extensions.

Make sure you do the day to day basics & invest in the right ongoing lash care.
At the end of every appointment I give you an eyelash brush. Brush your lashes daily. Put a brush EVERYWHERE (in your handbag, car, at work, bathroom, next to your bed, everywhere) so that when you feel like you have a lash out of place you brush them instead of pulling at them.

I recommend refills every 2-3 weeks to keep them looking fresh. If you decide that you don’t want them anymore, come in and get them removed with me. Whatever you do, don’t remove them yourself and potentially damage your natural lashes.

I really hope that you find this information useful! Please always feel free to come to me with any questions regarding your lash care, I am here to help

The journey to where we are now..

Hi, my name is Dani and i am the owner of That Pretty Little Lash Place. I am happily married to my hubby John, and we have a beautiful daughter, Harlow. I started my career in the beauty industry back in 2012 and in that same year studied to become a lash tech. I quickly realised that my passion laid in eyelash extensions, not so much waxing hoo haa’s (haha)! I LOVE the result that comes with a new set of lashes and knowing that the work that I do is a factor in increasing my clients confidence.

I started my career in the beauty industry in 2012 working with my mother-in-law and sister-in law at the family owned beauty salon in Brighton. This experience taught me a lot about the industry, the importance of great customer service, how to work within a timeframe in a very busy salon and about how to run a successful beauty business. Deciding that my passion was with eyelash extensions, I decided to make that my focus. I started working in a beautiful lash salon in Old Reynella with another fantastic lash tech. I honestly believe that it’s hard for a lash tech to grow on their skills if they’re not able to work alongside other lash techs to share tips and tricks

These 6 years of salon experience has been essential to being able to build and grow my own business and provide the best service to my clients.

In 2018, I decided to take the leap (in large part because this is what worked best for my family, having just had a baby) and start my own business from home. Since then, with the help of my amazing hubby and dad, we have turned our garage into the most beautiful salon space. It’s something that I am really proud of and I look forward to having clients come and leave feeling beautiful for many years to come.
