One thing I’ve drooled over for years is long luscious lashes, it doesn’t matter what mascara I use on my stubby little lashes they never look as good as the advert promises. I’ve lost count of the hundreds of dollars I’ve spent on volume lotions and potions for my peepers. Not to mention I’ve and had some very hit and miss appointments with different eyelash extension therapists. I’ve had the glue melt my real lashes off,had my eyes glued together in the corners and even with the great sets have found them very very hard and stiff.
I’d heard along the grapevine about Volume Lashes and how impressive they looked so when the gorgeous Tanya Young contacted me from Lovely Lashes I felt like the luckiest girl alive finally I would have knock out Bridget Bardot lashes without needing any more mascara or stiff eyelash extensions.
When I arrived to meet Tanya I was instantly at ease she is a true professional in ever sense of the word, and she really knows her lashes. I was very surprised to hear how much I didn’t know about eye lashes and that my previous extensions may of been housing a family of mites! Yes that’s right mites, I suddenly felt sick never before had I been shown how to care for my lashes once they were on. Tanya taught me all the tricks of the trade on shampooing them and keeping them full and luscious. She also cured them at the end so I could race off to dinner and have a shower that night without worrying about getting them wet.
Tanya talked me through the entire process which for me I really appreciated as I’m extremely claustrophobic and struggle to keep my eyes closed for long periods of time. My appointment was so relaxing and before I knew it just over an hour later I was a transformed lady and va va volume I had a full set of Lovely Lashes! No more mascara needed, no more smudged or panda eyes for me! The up keep is super easy with infills every few weeks to keep them looking fab.

So what are Volume lashes ?
Volume lashes originated out of Russia, this technique gives client’s safe and stunning volume! Volume lashes are only found in top quality lash salons and are testament to the dedication the technician has to her training.. It’s not an easy art to learn!
In the past with our clients we were limited by the number of natural eyelashes our clients had. If they had 100 lashes per eye — they would get 100 extensions. This is what is safe to put on your natural lashes as the extensions were much thicker. Standard lashes are great and look fantastic! But Lovely Lashes has come a LONG way since then!
The thinner diameter of VOLUME lash extensions opens up a whole new world of opportunities with your lashes.
We can now apply:
2 – 6 x 0.07mm extensions to each eye, all of these options weigh LESS than one traditional lash extensions!
This means with Volume lashing you’ll have fuller lash extensions! With between 200-600 lashes per eye! You are also able to change the amount of VOLUME lashes or length at each fill to achieve a different look, which is great if you have a special event come up!
And the other great news is they are also easier to maintain as they have through weight distribution over the lash bases, and added flexibility of thinner diameter extensions.
So beware of imitations! Ensure they truly are VOLUME LASHES! Ask you tech to allow you to feel both standard and VOLUME lash products so you know you’re truly getting VOLUME lashes, your lashes will thank you!
MITES …. THE SILENT EYELASH INVADERS
Put an eyelash or eyebrow hair under a microscope and you may get a surprise. About half the population have tiny transparent creatures about a third of a millimetre long called eyelash mites living on old skin cells and sebum (skin oil) at the base of these hairs. But unlike lice or fleas, they do little harm.
Though they cause an allergic reaction in a few people, most of us will never know they are there, scavenging dead skin and excess oil like the pilot fish that swarm around sharks to pick off their parasites.
We pick up eyelash mites by direct facial contact with other people – and they seem to prefer older hosts because they tend to have more oily skin.
So why am I telling you this? Simple, you need to wash your lashes! As previously mentioned in most cases these mites do no harm, however get an infestation and it’s a different story! I’m always reminding my clients that it’s so important to keep their lashes clean by washing them regularly, please wash your lashes ladies!
A bacterial infection isn’t fun and it can spell the end to your opportunity to wear eyelash extensions.
