The Keratin Lash Lift and Tint offered here at Bella Lash Brow is becoming increasingly more popular as it lifts and lengthens your own natural lashes.
Pin-straight eyelashes can go unnoticed. A Keratin Lash Lift opens up your eyes and adds length, body and a natural curl to your lashes without the need for lash extensions! Less Maintenance, Long-Lasting and Natural!
First, your lash therapist places collagen pads over your lower lashes and then curved silicone pads are placed over your upper eyelid. A bonding solution is then brushed over the eyelashes, pushing them up against the curved silicone pad. Next, your therapist checks for clumping and ensures that each of your lashes is equally spaced. Then a perming solution is applied and left to process for around 10-14mins. After that, the solution is removed and a neutraliser solution is applied and left to process for 6-8mins. Then it’s time to darken your lashes using a black tint for 3-6mins to ensure your new lifted lashes are as noticeable as possible.
The silicone pad is then removed and your lashes are coated with a deeply nourishing Pro Vitamin B5 and Castor Oil serum for a deep penetration. A Keratin Lash Lift and Tint is a perfect treatment to make your natural lashes flutter.
*Please note: Your lashes may take 10-15 mins to dry fully after treatment before maximum results can be seen.
Eyelash Extensions is a popular treatment that lengthens and thickens your own natural lashes. They are single (CLASSIC technique) or multiple (RUSSIAN VOLUME technique) strands of eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural lash. They are applied to each individual eyelash with a specially designed bonding adhesive for a natural, beautiful and luscious look.
The lashes are completely customised in terms of thickness, curl, length and style. Individual Eyelash Extensions are perfect for that special occasion or for long term wear.
Our aim is to make clients feel as relaxed as possible so we’ve created a cosy studio where you can switch off, lay back, grab the blanket and as most of our clients do you can fall asleep and wake up to beautiful lashes!
If it’s your first time, a consultation is given. During the consultation we will explain all the different curls, thicknesses, lengths and styles and discuss what would be more suited for you. Once we have decided on the type of lashes, you simply lay back and keep your eyes closed for up to 1.5 hours depending on the treatment.
The eyes and lashes need to be completely free of make-up but we will always deep cleanse the lashes again to make sure they are free of any protein or oil too. This is to ensure the lash extensions bond correctly to the natural lash.
We then place small Collagen White Pads (anti-wrinkle+anti-puffiness) under each eye which are placed over the lower lashes to keep them out of the way. Your eyes are then kept closed for the duration of the procedure. Using tweezers we use the pads as a work area by separating out the individual lash that is going to receive the extension (Isolation is the KEY to happy lashes!). The lash extension is then placed on to the natural lash with a specially formulated bonding adhesive by adding a very small amount of glue to the end of the lash and positioned in place. NONE of these lash extensions will be touching your eyelid with a 0.2mm of space between lash and skin.
The application of a Full Set at Bella Lash Brow takes approximately 1.5 hours and anywhere between 100 to 120 lashes are applied on each eye (60-90 lashes per eye for Half Set) depending on the size and shape of your eyes together with the look you want to achieve. Once all of the lashes have been applied there is usually about a 2 minute wait as we use a gentle mini fan for the adhesive vapour to evaporate and voila! Beautiful new lashes!
Relax! You are not expected to understand everything. It’s only beneficial for you if you try to do some research beforehand as you are doing now so our consultation runs smoother and quicker and we have as much lash time as possible. You can decide the exact type once we examine your natural lashes and eye shape and understand your preference. Due to variations in timing, you would just need to decide if you want an Express, Half or Full Set and which level of technician you want to book.
Not everyone’s lashes are the same! Some have more lashes than others. Some have almond eyes, round eyes, monolids, downward eyes etc. Some have straight lashes, curly lashes, dense lashes, thin lashes, sparse lashes, long lashes etc… your unique lash line will be different from another person’s lash line and so your look will look different from another person’s look. The ultimate goal is to keep your lashes healthy and create a look unique to your eye shape, personal preference and lifestyle.
We also offer free in-person or remote consultations which you can book online or contact us directly.
This speedy process of Express Volume enables you to have longer, fuller and thicker lashes in only 30 minutes! This option is great for first timers wanting to see how lashes would look on them, those that may have had a bad experience elsewhere so easing back into wearing lashes or those who simply want to be in and out in 30 minutes. Unlike Half or Full Set applications, approximately 40-60 individual lashes are applied per eye achieving a very subtle enhancement of the eyes.
CLASSIC sets involves adhering ONE extension to ONE natural lash. The Russian Volume Technique originated in Russia and is a multi-lash technique which involves adhering 2 (2D) or more (3D/4D etc) ultra-fine lashes onto a single natural lash. The main benefit of these VOLUME lashes is that it gives clients a full, high impact glamorous look with maximum natural looking volume. This technique is combined with a Feathering Technique which involves varying lengths along the hair shaft to give a light, natural feathering effect. The resulting benefit of Russian Volume Feathering is to add volume to the client’s natural lashes whilst keeping a soft and delicate look.
Please keep in mind that these special volume lashes are lighter in weight and won’t weigh down your natural lashes. These lashes are actually better for your lashes due to the snug fit and retention lasts longer than with CLASSIC. These lashes are still completely customised in terms of length, curl and thickness.
* These techniques require a specialised skill and knowledge. Please be careful of unqualified operators using ‘flare’ or ‘cluster’ lashes and offering this service as ‘volume lashes’. We have seen the damage this has caused over the years – flare or cluster lashes are not individual eyelash extensions or ‘volume lashes’ and are not meant to be applied using permanent or hair glue under any circumstances!
Depending on what look you want to achieve and the state of your natural lashes there is an option of a Half Set or Full Set. Whether you should opt for a Half Set or a Full Set depends on the thickness of your natural lashes and the look you want to achieve. Approximately 60-90 lashes per eye at a Half Set and approximately 100-120 lashes per eye at a Full Set. Those with very thick and full natural lashes could get away with a half set but a full set is usually the best option for the average person.
Please note Half Sets (lasts up to 4 weeks) do not last as long as Full Sets (lasts up to 8 weeks) as they do not have the support of the other lashes alongside them, our lash extensions are much finer than the standard thickness used in the industry and Half Sets cannot be infilled.
Not at all! They are virtually weightless and will not damage your natural lashes so you can choose to wear them permanently with regular infills. Here at Bella Lash Brow, Eyelash Extensions are applied on your own natural eyelashes one by one with a specially designed bonding adhesive developed exclusively for Eyelash Extensions. This new technique is not harmful to your natural eyelashes. The adhesive dries very soft on lashes allowing for maximum flexibility and comfort.
For the Hybrid Full Set at Bella Lash Brow, the first half of the appointment involves applying the CLASSIC technique (ONE eyelash extension on ONE natural lash) for 50% of your lashes. The second half of the appointment will consist of applying VOLUME lashes on each of the remaining natural lashes. This gives you a nice and fluffy look without the concern of being too dramatic yet not too sparse – perfect for first timers.
Both lash fibres are synthetic but the faux MINK is popular due to its dark, smooth and glossy finish. MINK lashes are durable and so hold their curl for weeks and it’s what our CLASSIC lashes are. Although they are not real MINK, they have been developed to look like real MINK.
SILK is a newer lash fibre and is the most weightless and luxury fibre of eyelash and is what fibre we use for our VOLUME lashes. They are great for people with weaker lashes as they are a little lighter and so without adding any weight adds length and fullness to your natural lashes. No more need for mascara, and your eyes will never look tired. Darker, glossier, lighter and more durable than MINK.
As long as your natural growth cycle so on average Full Sets last 6-8 weeks – as the eyelash extensions generally last until the natural lash falls out in its natural cycle. However it is advisable to have some infills applied approximately every 2–3 weeks (depending on how well you take care of them) to make sure your eyelashes always look fabulous, as by this stage around 30-50% would have fallen out as new lashes have grown through. How long your eyelash extensions last also depends on how you care for them (i.e. by removing makeup correctly, washing lashes daily with our Deep Lash Cleanser, not thrashing them, not tugging/pulling at your eyelash extensions). Some clients who take extra good care of their lashes get 4+ weeks before they need infills!
Yes, you can. Wearing eyeliner and eye shadow is fine – you just need to be a little gentle and remember to remove all traces of makeup correctly before bed using our Deep Lash Cleanser. We don’t recommend that you apply mascara to your Eyelash Extensions, as this can cause them to clump together and may contain oils that weaken the adhesive bond on your eyelash extensions, so they will not last as long.
Generally speaking, Eyelash Extensions are a safe and non-invasive cosmetic procedure. Bella Lash Brow uses a high-quality, low fume adhesive which is manufactured specifically for cosmetic use near the eye, and the adhesive does not actually ever touch your skin – as the extensions are glued to the eyelash hairs. Allergic reactions to the adhesive are very rare (1 in several thousand) and when they do present, are easily treated.
In saying this, we do not recommend that pregnant women who have never had Eyelash Extensions before test out the procedure during their pregnancy. The reasons are two-fold – firstly, the lash extension procedure requires you to lay flat on your back for over one hour; a position that is not recommended for women in the advanced stages of pregnancy. It also requires that you lie quite still – which can be hard if you’re heavily pregnant! Secondly, if you were unlucky enough to have an allergic reaction, your doctor may not be able to give you the required treatment due to your pregnancy, prolonging the reaction. However – if we have been doing your lashes here at Bella Lash Brow and you become pregnant, there’s no problem continuing with the extensions – just let us know so that we can make sure you are comfortable at all times!
Yes. In fact this is one of the best things about eyelash extensions – you will have pretty eyes ALL the time – when you wake up, straight out of the shower, out of the pool or spa etc. Just don’t rub them or use oily soaps and they will last a long time.
No – once your eyelash extensions are applied, they will feel just like your normal lashes – you shouldn’t feel any difference. The eyelash extension is bonded to the actual lash, not your eyelid skin, so it feels just like your normal lashes. One extension is applied to each lash individually, so your eyelashes can move freely. You should be careful not to roughly rub your eyes though, as this can damage the extensions and could make them a little uncomfortable.
Yes, appointments are necessary for all treatments at Bella Lash Brow. Evening appointments (between 5 – 8pm) and weekends are the most popular and can sometimes book out weeks in advance. Please BOOK NOW.
Of course you can darling! Everyone can enjoy Lash Extensions for healthier and more beautiful looking eyes. We can customise the lashes to suit your face and personality, and can do a more subtle set for gentlemen wishing to try out Lash Extensions or a Lash Lift.
