PRE-TREATMENT ADVICE

  •  Please attend your appointment free from eye makeup
  • If your eyelashes are fair and require an eyelash tint, this appointment should be booked separately. Eyelash tint treatments require a patch test if first time or if it has been longer than 6 months since your last treatment.
  • Individaul lashes are black in colour, so a tint is suggested if lashes are light.

AFTERCARE ADVICE

  • Do not get lashes wet for first 48 hours.
  • Avoid steam, saunas and swimming for the first 48 hours.
  • Avoid touching rubbing or introducing foreign bodies or contaminants into the eye area.
  • Ensure lashes are not disturbed or manipulated into different positions (e.g. when sleeping, cleansing the face, applying moisturiser or cosmetics).
  • Do not perm lashes or use curlers.
  • Do not use waterproof mascara.
  • Use oil-free make up remover if mascara is worn.
  • Please book in to have your lashes removed in the salon or purchase the professional remover at Sutherlands Hair and Beauty and follow your therapists advice.
  • If you have opted for the Nouveau Semi-Permanent Eyelash Extension treatment, we suggest booking in for an infill appointment every 2 – 3 weeks to keep your lashes looking their best. (The average lash cycle is 90 days, so lashes will naturally fall out during this time.)
