In addition to not caring for your lashes properly, there are a few mistakes people make when they receive their eyelash extensions that could lead to less than perfect results. In today’s post, we will discuss a few of the most common mistakes people make with their lash extensions so that you can avoid them and enjoy your lashes to the fullest extent.

Failure to Listen to the Lash Artist

Once your lash artist has applied your new lash extensions, they will provide you with a set of instructions that you need to follow in order to ensure that your new extensions completely adhere to your natural lashes. That being said, it’s easy to become overwhelmed with excitement about your new lashes and forget to listen to the instructions given to you by your lash artist. While you may be excited to get home and take a million selfies of you and your gorgeous lashes, it’s important that you pay close attention and listen to the instructions given to you by your lash artist.

You Don’t Shower Before Your Appointment

One very important instruction that your lash artist will give you is to avoid water for 24 to 48 hours after your appointment. The reason behind this rule is that your lash extensions are bonded to your natural lashes using an adhesive. This adhesive needs time to dry, otherwise, your lash extensions may fall out prematurely. Unfortunately, water and the lash adhesive do not mix, which is why it’s vitally important that you avoid water after your appointment. For this reason, we recommend that those coming in for their lashing appointment shower beforehand. This will help you feel fresh and clean, making it easier to avoid a major source of water until your lashes are completely dry.

You Come to Your Appointment Wearing Makeup

It’s understandable that you want to come into your lashing appointment looking your best and leave with amazing eyelashes that enhance your appearance. However, you should never come to your lash extension appointment wearing a full face of makeup. In order to attach your lash extensions, the lash artist needs your face to be completely clean and free of any makeup. It’s recommended that you remove your makeup the night before your appointment and wash your face before your appointment. That being said, if you forget to remove your makeup before your lashing appointment, the time it takes to remove your makeup will take away from the time your artist will use to apply your lash extensions.

You Book an Appointment With the First Salon You Find

If you have decided that eyelash extensions are right for you, don’t go rushing out to book an appointment with the first salon that you can find. It’s a good idea to take some time, do your research, and find a salon that will meet your needs and expectations. Some lash studios don’t require their lash artists to go through rigorous training, meaning that you may not end up with the best set of lash extensions. If you have friends with have eyelash extensions, ask around to see if they have recommendations or look at reviews online for lash studios in your area.
