All things Christmas

1961E35B-A32F-41D1-B9FD-80EF326B9844Last weekend we celebrated our work Christmas party, as you know we don’t do things by halves. We went to Dublin and what a fun, eventful time we had. I,m sure the girls will tell you all about it when you come in next.

So, let’s talk about Christmas.

Our treat card points can not be used from 5th December until 2nd January.

Treatments booked 16th December until 2nd January also will need a deposit to secure your appointment. We hope you understand the reasons in doing this,  most appointments have been covered now. If you still need to make a deposit please could this be done during your next appointment with us or if you wouldn’t mind giving us a call when it’s convenient for you. Thank you!

15th December is Christmas Jumper day! Every year we love making the effort to wear our Christmas jumpers and we would love it if you could to. We will be raising money for Save The Children, there will be lots going on in salon so pop in and let’s raise money for an amazing cause.

Our opening hours are:

If you have a problem with finding an appointment online or on our app, please call the salon and we will do our best to find one for you.

Last year we loved giving all our clients a little something back, so we will be doing the same again this year. If you have an appointment during the week 16th December until stocks last. You will receive a £5 gift card to spend in January, terms and conditions are noted on the back of the card.

We look forward to seeing you all over the Christmas period.

Best wishes,

Autumn Lash Cycle

▪️AUTUMN LASH SHED ▪️

 

Lash shred

 

Yes it’s that time of year! Your hair feels crap, your hair on your body might be slightly different, if you have a dog/cat they will be moulting, after all we are all animals and this time of year all our hair SHREDS, and unfortunately this means our beautiful eyelashes.

Why does this happen?

This time of year, the sun is disappearing which means less  vitamin D, which tells our body we don’t need our hair as much anymore, as our hair on our body is there to protect us from the sun! So that is the science behind it.

So your lashes might be falling out quicker, you might have large gaps. It’s not you, it’s not us, it’s not our glue or your lash techs glue. When your extension is falling out with the natural lash like the image above – there is nothing any of us can do.

You might want to bring your appointments slightly forward to they don’t get to gappy. In a month of so this will stop and will go back to normal, so don’t worry!

Lash techs, feel free to share to let your clients know ❤️

What a month for KG

What a crazy month it’s been, first of all we completed our first exhibition at the NEC BeautyUK show. Such a busy exciting weekend, it was so lovely to see so many of our customers and introducing ourselves to so many new customers/distributors and students.

 We offered training at a local salon in Warwick which very quickly became fully booked. Katie and Jess taught Classic Individual Lashes and Russian Volume, which went down a storm with the local lash Tech to Warwick. We loved training everyone and can’t wait to see their exciting future in Eyelash extensions! 
This month our training courses have been super busy, because of this we have introduced an exciting offer ! With every course booked not only do you receive your FREE training kit you also receive access to our online course worth over £340. With all of this knowledge in class and at home there is no reason why you shouldn’t succeed!

 Courses take place at our flagship studio in Bedfordshire and now in Gloucestershire with our fantastic trainer Hayley Mountjoy at The Beauty Spot in Tetbury.

If you have any questions on training, please get in touch.

Patch testing 

PLEASE ladies, never get eyelash extensions done anywhere without a patch test.Reactions are awful and can cause severe discomfort and even worse…. cause blindness. It is just not worth the risk. Even if you have had lashes for years and trying another salon or therapist, you still need to be patch tested with their glue.

That second patch test can really save a lot of hurt later on.

LASH TECHS: How do you patch test?

There are two ways of testing.

FIRST – BEHIND THE EAR. Why do I like this as my favourite way? Because it’s close to the eye, but not on the face. It touches the skin (which some don’t agree on) but a lash tech could easily drop a lash with glue on, so you need to know if allergic on the skin. 

IF there was a reaction, at least it was behind the ear rather than on her eye. 

Plus it’s quick and easy for therapist and client. 

SECOND – APPLY LASHES – This is my least favourite as the glue doesn’t touch the skin. So what happens if you drop that lash on your client? Or your client moves suddenly and comes in contact with the glue? This patch test will not show up if allergic to the skin. It may show up if allergic to the fumes of the glue… but in a full set of lashes there will be many more fumes, so this is unlikely to show up a reaction.

Please note: patch tests are not 100% guaranteed and a reaction normally comes over a period of time once someone is having lashes ongoing.

So how do you patch test or what is your view?
