Here’s hoping August brings you sun, fun, happiness and… fabulous eyelashes! This month at The Beauty Spot we’re offering you a full set of eyelash extensions for only £45 (usually £85!). The offer is available with our lovely Beauty Therapist Megan with limited appointments available. These spaces will fill quickly – so book now before you miss out! A patch test is required 72 hours prior to treatment.

All us women dream of having long, full, effortless looking eyelashes and if we aren’t lucky enough to have these naturally, we may seek help in the form of DIY strip lashes, tinting and lifting. But, if  you’re craving a bolder look and find strip lashes too much of a pain or a tint and lift isn’t dramatic, enough then we recommend eyelash extensions.

Break the stigma

There’s a lot of stigma surrounding the idea that eyelash extensions are bad for your natural eyelashes. If applied by a professional/trained therapist and you follow the correct aftercare routine, then your natural eyelashes won’t be damaged. At our friendly Basingstoke beauty salon, you can rest easy knowing your lashes are in expert hands.

Keep your lashes on point – tips from the eyelash extension experts

Prepping for your dream lashes – ensuring your eyelashes are prepped correctly before treatment is just as important as the aftercare. Arrive to your appointment without eye make-up. Ideally it is best to not use any mascara on the day as any slight trace of make up or oil can affect the eyelash bond.

Stay dry – when you leave the salon feeling at the top of your game with your beautiful new eyelashes, it’s important to keep your lashes dry for at least 24 hours as water can unsettle the glue in this initial phase. When showering avoid getting your face wet and make sure you have washed your hair the night before your appointment. If you are a gym bunny please bear in mind that you will have to avoid the gym for 24 hours (sorry!). Also avoid steam rooms/saunas.

Don’t play – you should not be playing with your lashes. We know it’s tempting because they are so luscious and new but fiddling with them can cause damage to your natural lashes and also change the longevity of your extensions.

Get regular infills – to keep your eyelashes looking great, it is important to get your infills every 2-3 weeks. It will be hard for us to maintain a full and flawless look if you wait any longer and you may end up needing a whole new set. Besides, no one wants gappy lashes!
