The perfect solution for the false lash addict or brides with a honeymoon booked, Semi-Permanent lashes have a 2-3 week wear with the most fabulous, natural effect. Jessicca offers both classic and Russian volume lashes to cater for your preference.
Classic lash extensions come in a variety of fibres, Jessicca prefers to use “Faux Synthetic Mink” due to it being the softest and most natural feeling.
As well as this, extensions also come in many different lash curls, lengths and thicknesses which all play an important factor in how a finished set of lash extensions will look on each client.
Classic Eyelash Extensions involves the process of carefully applying a single extension fibre to a single natural healthy eyelash at approximately .5 of a millimetre away from the eyelid skin making it very precise work that requires a great deal of concentration.
A typical full set of Classic lashes can vary from having 40 extensions up to 150 extensions per eye depending on the clients desired look and of course how many natural healthy lashes they have to begin with. The treatment typically lasts between 1.5 to 2 hours.
Compared to classic lash extensions, where you could only SAFELY attach one eyelash extension to each natural lash, Russian Volume lashes (also known as 2D – 8D lashes) breaks through that limitation by having anywhere from 2 to 8 super fine extensions applied to a single natural eyelash, SAFELY.
This has only been made possible thanks to recent technological advancements in the lash extensions manufacturing process, which has enabled manufacturers to create super LIGHT and super FINE extensions.
In fact, these extensions are so light, that 5 x 0.07 thickness (Volume Lash) extensions PUT TOGETHER weigh less than 1 x 0.20 thickness (Standard Classic Lash) extension on it own.
Now that’s light!
The method for applying these super light extensions is by creating a “fan” consisting of anywhere from 2 to 8 extensions that are then carefully attached to a single natural lash.
This technique allows for a whopping 700 or more extensions to be applied per eye and gives an incredibly dense and lush look. The best part is because they’re so light you’re hardly able to feel you’re wearing any eyelash extensions at all!
Of course not everyone wants 8D & 700+ extensions applied to each eye which is why Volume Lashes can be tailored to each clients desired look. IE 2D, 3D, 4D, 5D and so on with varying extension lengths, thicknesses and curls. Not to mention the fans themselves can be made wide, medium or narrow. The end result, a truly bespoke Volume Lash look.
Say hello to the perfect Eyelash Extensions!
Russian Volume Lashes
Always arrive at your appointment COMPLETELY MAKEUP FREE on the eye area. This is very important as it means your lashes will be dry and the best bond can be achieved.
Never use mascara on the day of your appointment. If removing eyeshadow/liner after work really focus on those eyelash roots! If any trace of mascara or oil remover remains on the eyelash when you arrive at your appointment… your extensions won’t last past two weeks.
Ideally you should use baby shampoo on your natural lashes the night before/morning of your eyelash extensions being applied – it is the perfect way to prepare them. We can only use a water based cleanser that is specifically designed to prepare the natural lash for application and it won’t cut through mascara at all.
Please wash your hair prior to your appointment if you need to as you won’t be able to get your lashes wet for 48hrs.
Gym Bunnies: Please reschedule any exercise plans for 48hrs after your appointment.
The 48hrs following the application of eyelash extensions is critical to their longevity.Although your eyelashes are dry when you leave us, the glue is not cured so you must avoid water for 48hrs.
When washing your face/showering during this time frame: avoid water coming into contact with the eye area. Allowing your extensions to become wet during this initial phase could potentially cause irritation, it’s extremely rare but do not risk it. The final reason is water could allow the extension to move from its perfect placement! So wash your hair (if you need to) before your appointment and be careful when cleansing your face.
Sauna/Steam/Bikram/Pools do need to be avoided for 48hrs. This is for safety reasons as well as longevity of application so please adhere to this.
When cleansing please do not let cotton anywhere near them, it will hook onto the base of the lash and tear it free: face wipes, cotton pads and flannels should be avoided. Simply use an oil free, gentle cleanser or baby shampoo and lightly massage the make up away with your eye closed. Splash some water and then pat (don’t rub) dry with a towel underneath your eyes.
Give your extensions a thorough clean every day: Using an oil free cleanser or baby shampoo lightly massage at the base of extensions and along the eyelid. Splash with plenty of water and very carefully pat dry. This is a very important part of your eyelash extension aftercare so don’t skip it! Some people are under the impression the should be left alone but this is not the case. You’ll find this method removes eyeshadow and eyeliner in a flash.
Golden rule: DON’T PLAY with them: Especially in the first golden 24hrs, you can look but you can not touch. Too much touching may result in damage to your natural lashes, every possible care is given to ensure their health during application. The goal is for your own eyelashes to be healthier for wearing extensions.
You'll be provided with a comb to brush them out: Just brush the tips if you feel they need it, don’t go to the base as you risk unhooking that seamless bond we’ve spent ages perfecting Following exposure to a lot of water i.e shower or swimming your lashes may need a quick comb. They dry quickly but if you wish to speed up the process you can dry them with your hair dryer on the cool option. Use the lowest power setting.
Please don’t use mascara on your extensions: Your extensions are designed to look long and natural without clumps or smudges and it will impair your maintenance/infill appointment.
This may sound like a lot of work but you’ll actually find your new eyelashes save you so much time!
