Summertime Lash Woes

Summertime wreaks havoc on our lash extensions so let's go over some tips to keep them full all summer long! 

****Generally hair and lashes grow faster in the warmer months. Remember you can naturally shed around 3 lashes a day and this could double in summer! This means we may need more frequent refills in summer to keep them tidy and full. Take advantage of a mini fill or even shorter fill in. I'd rather fit you in for a quick 15-20 min appt and fill that little gap for $20 than have you feel like a little bald eagle. hehe 

You must keep your lash extensions dry for 24 hours after having them applied. In humid weather you really need the full 24 hours to bond. Stay cool and dry while they bond for 24 hours, i.e. No gym, no swimming, no hot yoga, etc. IF you must, take a bath, not a shower, too much steam. 

*Sunscreen needs to be applied carefully.  All spray on kinds for your face are to be avoided and if possible try an oil free sunscreen for the face.

* Oily skin clients, consider using blotting papers to reduce oil and matte skincare and makeup products. 

*Chlorine eats away at the lash adhesive. So when swimming you can use goggles or keep your lashes out of the water. But if you are swimming make sure you don’t let the chlorine dry on your lashes. Rinse them gently afterwards with tap water. (Same goes for salt water too!) 

*Avoid spray tans on face after lash application for a good 72 hours. 

* I cannot stress enough to keep your lashes clean. We sell Bella Lash cleanser or you can use a foam pump with water/ baby shampoo that is oil free. 

*When you leave your lash appointment, do not apply eye makeup for 24 hours after application. 
Happy Summer Y'all!! 
And may the lash odds be ever you in your favor! haha

Jaclyn & Zach 11-5-2011

I can't believe that over a year ago, I was over at one of my favorite stores, I Heart, trying to find a bridesmaid's dress for my sister's wedding when I ran into Jaclyn.  She was so helpful helping me to try and find a dress and I mentioned that I plan weddings.  She mentioned she was getting married the next November and her parents just happened to be in the store that day as well!  I gave her my card before leaving the store.

   Just a few months later, I received an email from Jaclyn saying she saw her brother recently get married and realized she needed help her plan & coordinate her wedding day!  This year has completely flown by!  I was excited about her wedding because even though she had more "neutral" colors overall, she had pops of fuchsia everywhere (I love any shade of pink!).  The venue is also one of my favorite, newer venues in Charleston, The Island House on James Island.

    During our first official meeting, Jaclyn told me  her signat…
