Wednesday Tip Of The Week 

#Wednesdays Tip of the week.
Brush your lashes daily ❤️

After your appointment at KG we give you an aftercare bag. Within your bag, you get lash brushes. Brush your eyelashes daily. I do mine in the morning when I do the rest of my makeup.

Why brush your lashes?

Brushing your #lashes will keep them neat and uniformed. Your loose lashes will come away, don’t worry, it’s better than them on your face in the day 🙈

When your lashes fall out, your natural lash will be attached to the extension. This is due to your natural lash cycle which is every 90 days. The extension has not pulled your lash out prematurely so do not worry.

Enjoy your lashes ❤️

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?

Inner lash extensions 

Getting those inner lashes perfect!.•

It is my pet hate seeing long inner lash extensions. They should be short all the time and gradually work up to the length that you want.

Why is this?

🔘 It will be uncomfortable for the client when they start to grow out.

🔘 If shorter, the shape your working on for your client will be more emphasised.

🔘 Inner lashes are shorter naturally.

🔘 Inner lashes cannot hold the weight of longer lashes, so keep natural lash safely in mind.

These lashes I started off with 0.05 B curl in 6mm, 7mm, then blended into 0.05 C curl, 0.08, 0.09.

So keep your inners short ladies 💗
