Semi-Permanent Eyelash Extensions
Hollywood Lashes are semi permanent eyelash extensions that can have a life span of 4-6 weeks, longer with regular “Infils”.
Hollywood Lashes are made from one natural looking lash with no bobble or feathering, they are weightless and are shaped to emulate the natural lash and therefore can be applied on top, below, or either side of the donor lash.
Using the latest semi permanent adhesives the lashes will stay attached to the donor lash whilst remaining flexible and bouncy resulting in a natural looking application.
Once applied, Hollywood Lashes look gorgeous, are weightless, crimp resistant and flexible. They are also water resistant meaning you can swim, shower, cry and sleep without worry.
Since being introduced to the UK in 2005, Hollywood Lashes has fast become the market leader in semi permanent Lashes, using the highest quality products and latest techniques. The lashes come in different lengths, thickness, curves and colours to suit everyone and the look you wish to achieve from a natural look to the glamour look. The application can take up to one hour depending on the required look and a patch test may be advised 24 hours before application.
After your lashes are applied, the following aftercare will ensure they stay looking gorgeous:
- Do not allow water to contact the eyelids for the first two hours.
- Do not wash eyes or lash extension with hot water or steam the face for 48 hours and avoid saunas, jacuzzis or swimming.
- Do not use mascara as the oil may damage the bond.
- Do not perm Hollywood Lash Extensions.
- Do not tint over bonded area.
- Rubbing eyes may pull out lashes with extensions attached.
- Do not use heated curlers.
- Do not cover with an eye mask.
It is advisable to treat your new Hollywood lashes with care, just as you would hair extensions. Your natural lashes will shed naturally taking the extensions with them. Regular infil treatments will be required every 2-3 weeks to keep that full lash look.
How long will the semi permanent lash extensions last?
The Lashes will last around 4-6 weeks depending on natural lash growth and aftercare, longer with regular Infils which are due every 2-4 weeks.
What is the difference between semi permanent lash extension and false lashes?
False lashes last only from 1 day up to 7.
Will it look natural if I want them to?
Yes, the lash extensions are a lightweight material that bond with your own lashes.
Are there different looks that I can choose from?
Yes, you can choose either a natural or glamour look. They come in many sizes, thickness and curls. There’s a look to suit all.
Is there any discomfort during the procedure?
No, you keep your eyes closed during the entire procedure, lots of my clients actually say its very relaxing.
Can I swim or shower with the lash extensions?
Not for 24 hours, they need to be kept dry so the glue can dry properly.
How long will it take to apply semi permanent lash extensions?
About 1 hour.
Can lash extensions be removed?
Yes, they can be removed if needed with our lash remover, this is the best way as if you pull them your likely to pull your natural lashes out too and that can damage your own lashes.
To what length can I extend my eye lashes?
You can extend anywhere from 1/3 up to double the length of your natural lashes.
Can I still wear Make-up?
You can still wear eye make-up but it is important not use any oil based make-up. The properties in oil-based products will loosen the bonding of the eyelashes. It is also best to avoid creams and make-up removers which contain oil as these will cause the eyelash extensions to fall off your natural lashes. We recommend ‘Simple’ Products as these are Non-Oily.
A consultation of at least 24 hours prior to your application will be required for you to decide the best look for yourself and for the procedure and aftercare to be explained at the same time.
3 Lashes will be applied as a “patch test” on each eye.
How long before i need Infills?
After the procedure you will need to return to the salon for infill / maintenance procedures to keep your full lash look. This is advised every 2 to 3 weeks.
