I apply semi permanent lashes using the classic individual 1:1 technique, and mix in a few volume lashes where needed for a fuller look, to fill sparse lashes.  


The procedure is very relaxing - many clients fall asleep.  Your lashes are firstly primed with a pre-treatment solution which dissolves any oil-residue on the lash (this helps create a good bond with the adhesive).   Each eyelash is then isolated one-by-one with the synthetic lash gently applied on top, using a EU-standard medical grade adhesive.  Eyelash extensions are applied directly onto the existing lash, away from the skin of the eyelid so as to allow the natural growth of your lashes. 

Applying a set of lashes can take anything from 60-120 minutes, depending on how many lashes and what kind of look you're after. These will shed with your natural lashes.  Your semi-permanent eyelash extensions will last anywhere between 3-6 weeks, depending on the rate of growth of your eyelashes, and how you look after them.  Most eyelashes have on average a 90-day growth cycle, which means you'll lose approximately 2-5 lashes per day on each eye.  I therefore advise regular maintenance infills every 2-3 weeks, to keep your lashes looking perfect.


Post Treatment

The first 24-48 hours are crucial to the bonding procedure, and aftercare advice should be taken in order to get the most out of your eyelash extensions.

  • No water should come into contact with your eyelashes for 24 hours.

  • For 48 hours after treatment do not steam your face, use a steam bath, swim or wash face with hot water.

  • Do not apply mascara to your lash extensions.

  • If you choose to wear mascara on your bottom lashes make sure it's a water based product.

  • Do not use an eyelash curler or perm the lashes.

  • Do not rub lashes when washing your face – always pat dry after cleansing.

  • Do not pull your eyelashes.

  • If you wear eye make-up, use powder based, non-oily products.

  • To remove make-up use an oil free make-up remover.

  • Remember emollients, creams, and oils are the eyelash bonding agent’s worst enemy. Use eye creams sparingly and avoid lid/lash area.



Booking an infill appointment will entail removing any stray or fallen lashes first.  You will leave looking as if you have had a new set applied.  To be considered as an infill there must be at least 50% still remaining.  Appointment times vary according to how much of an infill you need, I usually advise 45 or 60 minutes, every 2 or 3 weeks.
