Eyelash extensions are the wonder treatment used to enhance the length, curliness, fullness, and thickness of natural eyelashes. Extensions can last between six to eight weeks and are made from several different materials including mink, synthetic, or even horse hair. Our therapists use one of three preferred brands and pride themselves on creating especially natural and fluttery lashes to suit every eye shape.
Before lusting after super fluffy or defined lashes, it’s important to remember that the results for your own eyes depend very much on the current length and strength of your natural hairs.
With this in mind, our therapists are highly experienced and will always recommend and apply the most appropriate thickness and length for your particular features. Be on the lookout for professionals who easily accept whichever style you would like without any visual review of your natural lashes, those who fail to do so may actually damage your existing lashes.
The rules around patch testing and eyelash extensions are highly disputed and vary between insurance providers, as technically no glue should touch your actual eye. However, all of our therapists provide a patch test appointment which can be booked in conjunction with your actual appointment no less than 24 hours before.
Eyelash extensions are a fairly high maintenance treatment that require regular infills to maintain beautiful results. Regular trips to the salon can seem expensive and extremely time consuming. Through the Bloom app we’re delighted to send our elite professionals to pamper customers in their own homes and to achieve the same amazing results without any of the typical hassle.
Our therapists will guide you on how many lashes they recommend adding, the nature of the curl, and the length of the extensions that are best for optimum results.
Make sure to book your lashes during a period where you can lay low for at least 12 hours afterwards. Our certified MAC make-up artist and lash specialist Kelsey advises clients not to swim or wash your face for at least 12 hours after getting extensions. This time period allows the glue a chance to dry, another recommendation from Kelsey:
“Keep oily substances away from your eyes such as oil based micellar waters, failure to avoid such products can actually cause the glue to melt. In addition, avoid liquid eyeliner on the top lash line. Follow the above aftercare steps to ensure your lashes remain defined, clean and protected for maximum results.”
Below are beautiful examples of the different types of extensions available, these are our signature Bloom Classics, Russians and Hybrids.
It’s not too important to know the in’s and out’s of different extensions, all you need to remember is that classics are the most widely used technique and this involves applying a single lash extension over your natural lash.
The up and coming Russian volume style require the technician to add up to eight ultra-fine extensions onto each natural eyelash for a fluffy, thick, fanned-out effect.
We are also excited to be able to offer the latest trend, hybrid lashes which consist of a combination of two different lash application techniques rolled into one. For example, therapists can choose to get creative with their styles adding both classic and Russian techniques to achieve a super textured, naturally defined and fluttery look.
As the warmer weather approaches and we desire for a more naturally beautiful glow, lash extensions can provide the perfect base for a summer face that leaves you feeling confident without the need for excessive makeup.
