Prép Beauty Parlour Bella Lash Extensions Aftercare

One of the most important parts to keeping lashes looking fresh and full, is aftercare. Using the proper products whether it be make up remover or facial cleanser can create a huge impact on the longevity of your lashes. Thankfully, Prép Beauty Parlour has you covered! Bella Lash has created and come out with many products that will be sure to extend the life of your beautiful lashes, and limit your visits to get fills! (Though it is safe to say we will miss your pretty face!!) Let’s give you a quick walk through on all of our current favourites and lash aftercare products!

Prép Beauty Parlour Bella Lash Extensions Aftercare

♡INTELLISEAL♡

One of Prép Beauty Parlour’s favourite Bella product in which we use after each lash nap is the IntelliSeal. Essentially, the IntelliSeal- as mentioned in it’s name, seals your lashes. Think of it as the top coat and the cuticle oil at the end of the well deserved manicure. Voted ‘Best of Product in 2016’ by LNE Spa & Magazine, it also helps to cure the lash adhesive and conditions your natural lashes. The stronger your natural lashes are, the better the bonding life of the extensions.

♡LASH CLEANSER♡

We love our lash extensions, why? Because it gives us that amazing oomph in both length and volume with little effort! Pop a little bit of concealer on those under eyes, our favourite shimmery eyeshadow, highlight, bronze up, and we’re good to go! So how do we go abouts safely removing all of that product off without damaging or pulling our lashes? Many make up removers on the market contain nourishing oils that will only cause our lashes to fall out quicker. This is why our favourite go-to is the Bella Lash Cleanser! It is gentle, completely oil-free, and make just for eyelash extension wearers! Not only is it the best lash cleanser to remove our make up with, but it also contains Chamomile and Saponaria extracts that nourish the natural lashes! Come in & pick up a bottle!

♡DEEP CLEANSER♡

Another cleanser Prép carries is the Bella Deep Cleanser. We typically do not recommend using a mascara no eyelash extensions safe as it can be very difficult and damaging to remove. Luckily, we do have another cleanser for you know, those “I NEED” mascara days. This formula has a thicker consistency and works harder to remove any mascara residue from Sephora or eyelash extension safe mascara. All without damaging the bond between the extensions! The best thing about this deep cleanser for lashes is that it has added moisturizers and vitamins that help to condition and strengthen your lashes as well as the sensitive area around your eye.

So you’ve seen our last post here and you think you know everything there is to know about lash extensions..right? Nope! There’s more! And don’t you worry, we’ll be walking you through that today! Today we’ll be going over the different types of lash curls and lengths, as well as styles and which shape would be best suited for you!

The synthetic lash that is glued onto one of your natural lashes come in a variation of styles. At Prép we carry B, C, D, and J/A curls.

Different Lash Extension Looks

Different Lash Extension Looks

A/J curls are the most natural and have the least curl in them. A/J curls have little to no curl at all. As flat, no curl lashes, they blend in the easiest and are perfect for those who are getting lashes for the first time and enjoy a very subtle, natural look.

B curls- B curls are the next level of curls. They have a very slight curl and are again, suitable for those who are wanting a natural look to their extensions. They also suit those who are wanting to simply extend the length of their natural lashes without adding too much drama to them.

C curls- C curls are popular for those who usually wear make-up and enjoy a strong look- thats clear that you’re wearing lash extensions. They may even appear as if you are wearing eyeliner. They are noticeable and look gorgeous!

D curls- D curls are the most dramatic type of curl that we carry. These are good for people who hooded eyes or have lashes that are long, but are covered by the shape of their eye. Many clients will come in and have had experiences with C-Curl lashes and expect a dramatic curl, just to notice that the curls are not visible from the front view and instead, only from a side view.

L & L+ curls- These curls look the same as they are named- an L shape! These can only be made possible in a lash lift and may not suit everybody. It is also important to remember that lashes of different curls, length and width may look different on everybody’s lashes!

Moving onto the lash styles, lash extensions, similar to false strip lashes, can be used to create many looks that can accentuate your eye shape.   Prép lash technicians will use a variation of sizes and lengths to design the shape properly for each lovely client.

Here are some looks below:

Lash Extension Styles

Lash Extension Styles

 

Natural- Natural style is good for well, those wanting a natural look! They are closest to the natural eye shape. There may be slightly longer lashes attached near the middle as well as the ends, the extensions should match your natural lash style.

Cat-Eye- Cat eyes are sexy, seductive, and stunning! This style is most fitting for shorter and rounder eyes, and will elongate your eyes. “cat-eyes” for those who are hoping to elongate their eyes without the use of eyeliner. Your lash technician will discuss with you as to which curl works out to be the best for the looks.

Doll/Open- Eye/Cute-Prép recommend “cute” or commonly known as doll eye for those who have longer eyes, this style will really open up your eyes! This kind of style suits those who have smaller eyes.  The longer lashes in the middle will open up your eyes and create a doe eye look.

Below you can browse some of the looks done by technicians from Prép!

Before Your First Set of Eyelash Extensions | Prép Beauty Parlour

As the trend for eyelash extensions continue to soar high, with women of all styles becoming addicted to the, we often get tons of questions on the types and styles of lash extensions! Today we’ll be taking you on a journey step by step to ensure you learn everything there is to learn about eyelash extensions before your first appointment here at Prép! From the glues to the setting periods. We will discuss more on sizes, length and curls next week!  Let’s begin!

Lash Extensions at Prép Beauty Parlour

First, we are going to talk about learning to know what is a good set and what is not! For lots of lash newbies, they often go to a salon where their set may appear flawless, but in reality is not! After several days, the client may feel discomfort or multiple lashes (including our own baby lashes- yikes!!), may  begin to fall out. Now listen up ladies! Take note:

A proper set of eyelash extensions should feel weightless, painless, and should last 2-3+ weeks depending on your own lash cycle, weather, and any facial products you use. Our certified Prép technicians carefully apply a synthetic eyelash to each one of your natural eyelash using the perfect amount of glue. This being said, the glue should not affect the lashes and make them look clumpy, and should not be seen on your eyelid at all! If a technician applies too much glue, the client will begin to feel discomfort within a few days when her own lashes are growing but they are all stuck together!! Tangled with the extensions AND natural lashes! At Prép we only use individual lashes since cluster lashes will be a definite problem! This is a big NO-NO! If you are worry about the glue going into your eye, this should not be a problem at all as your eyes would be closed and there will be a gel pad under your eye!

As there are many clients with sensitive eyes or skin, we do recommend you call our salon at 604-764-6452 before your visit to book an allergy test on a separate occasion! We carry several different glues that may cater better to you!

Spring and Summer holiday seasons are coming up! What better way than to wake up without a care in the world and looking flawless with long and luscious lashes? Although eyelash extensions are fabulous for day time activities, we frequently have our inboxes flooding up with concerns swimmers and ocean dwellers on whether or not it is safe to wear eyelash extensions during this time. Our answer? A definite yes! We love having our extensions in during our Hawaii and Caribbean get aways! But it is SUPER important to clean them as soon as you exit the majestic waters looking like a mermaid! As the sea water may cause build up and be abrasive and break down the glue.

Before coming in for your eyelash extensions appointment, we recommend you shower and wash your hair and do any face masks regimes before. Since there is a teeny weeny period after getting your lashes, in which you are strongly recommended not to allow any contact with water. In order for the glue to fully cure, water cannot touch the lashes for 24-48 hours. If you do accidentally get water near your eyes within this time frame, the lashes will fall out much faster and you may feel a stinging sensation similar to the one you felt upon getting your lashes. We advise for you to give us a call as soon as possible to make sure your lashes look flawless again!

Introducing Royal Lashes, now being offered at Prép Beauty Parlour…  experience a new way to wear eyelash extensions elegantly.

Softer, stronger, and lighter than conventional lashes, Royal Lashes allow the appearance of a voluminous look brought on by popular lash style Russian Volume, yet it carries the same weightless and delicacy of our Classic lashes.

Conventional Classic lashes are done by applying one synthetic mink lash to one natural lash. Often giving a very natural effect. For those wanting a more extravagant set, Prép Beauty Parlour also offers Russian Volume sets. Russian Volume lashes can have up to 5 lashes attached to each natural lash and can create a glamorously dramatic look. Royal lashes are the perfect in- between option for clients wanting a mix of the two styles.

Royal Lashes are made with a specific concave edges, giving them an ellipse shape. The shape of the concave surface allows the Royal Lash to enables it’s ability to embrace the natural lash. Due to the natural thickness of the flat lashes, the lashes will create the appearance of 0.20 mm lashes when only the 0.15 mm lashes are applied. With an increased bonding area as compared to conventional lashes, lash adhesive can easily settle in, embracing the natural lash, guaranteeing an smooth application and ensuring it’s security. With the specific shape, Royal Lashes prevent common twisting of the lash, guaranteeing the life length of extensions.

The increased surface area of the royal lash are ideal for Prép ladies with very straight, weak, and thin natural lashes, but are wanting a more dramatic curl. This is a fabulous alternative for those who worry about the thickness causing a concern about the weight. Royal Lashes are weightless on the bottom, allowing them to easily adhere on even the thinnest of natural lashes.
