Home/Preparing for Your Appointment

Lash Extensions

Remove all make-up and oils from eye area & eyelashes such as:

  • Mascara

  • Eyeliner

  • Eyeshadow

  • Eye creams and/or eye serums

  • Eye primer

Please inform us if you have had any of these treatments prior to your appointment:

  • Chemical Peels

  • Microdermabrasion

  • Laser

  • Permanent makeup

  • Do not curl your lashes before/after any appointments.
  • If we decide to remove your lashes due to someone’s bad application, its best to wait 2 days before applying a new set depending on your natural lash look.
  • Tinting or perming lashes is recommended to be done 48 hours prior to lash visit.

Airbrush Spray Tanning

Exfoliate prior to your appointment. Using a face cloth or a sponge with soap (preferably with beads) and wash entire body – pay particular attention to underarms and creases (i.e. neck, behind knees, and elbows).

  • Plan ahead! You will be unable to shower for 8 hours after tanning. Also, please refrain from doing any activities that will make you perspire (exercising, outdoor chores).

  • Tie back hair with an elastic band. Also, using a head band to secure bangs or loose hair will help in being able to fade the color into your hair line to ensure a natural, great looking tan.

  • Remove all jewelry.

  • Wear loose fitting clothing to the salon (i.e. – v-neck, tank top, baggy pants or shorts). Also, avoid wearing socks – flip flops or sandals are typically a better choice

  • Remember, do not put anything on your skin prior to your appointment. No deodorant, moisturizers, perfume/cologne or make-up.

 

Extending Your Tan

The following products will lighten or make the sunless tan blotchy:

  • Dove shower gel or soap

  • Curel lotion

  • Hair Inhibiting Lotions such as Jergens

  • Anti-aging products that “renew,” “refresh” or exfoliate skin

  • AHA’s (Alpha Hydroxy Acids), Glycolic, Lactic, Malic, Citric, and Tartaric Acids

  • BHA’s (Beta Hydroxy Acids-Salicylic Acid)

  • Retin-A type products (Retin-A, Renovate, Tazorac, and Trefinoin)

  • Toners containing Witch Hazel or Alcohol

  • Anti-acne products that exfoliate the skin-Accutane or Salicylic Acid

  • Makeup remover cleaning products or oils used to clean away eye makeup

  • Bar soaps, especially deodorant varieties or anti-bacterial

  • Use of loofa or a scrub mitt etc.

  • Band-Aids or adhesive tape

  • Facial masks or exfoliating scrubs

  • Wax hair removal

  • Shaving exfoliates the skin therefore fading the tan. Clients should use a new and clean razor with a lubricating product such as hair conditioner. Wash off conditioner when done. A dull razor will scrape off the tan.

  • Pat dry after a shower; don’t rub dry

  • Submersion in a hot tub, swimming pool with chlorine, salt water even a long hot bath

  • Women’s tans may also develop differently during various hormonal occurrences (ovulation, menstruation, pregnancy). It may be a streaky, patchy, fade worse or produce a lighter or no color.

  • Bug spray, when sprayed directly onto the skin can remove or fade the tan. Clients should spray clothing or a “cloud” of spray that they can walk through instead of applying directly to the skin
