Weddings are truly special occasions! They are memorable events for everyone in attendance, and being able to look back and reminisce is something that you will have for a lifetime. That’s one reason why so many take the opportunity to invest in beautiful photographs and videos. Because a wedding is such a special day and so many photos are being taken, many brides choose to go with a more glamorous look. An excellent way to achieve that glamour and make your eyes stand out in photos is by opting for eyelash extensions for the occasion. Also as most brides tend to get a bit teary-eyed during this time, extensions will keep you from having mascara running down your perfectly airbrushed face. Here are a few key points to be mindful of when choosing eyelash extensions for your special day.
To ensure that your lashes are long, voluminous, and exactly how you have envisioned them on your wedding day, it’s important that you schedule your appointments properly. We know you have a lot on your mind, so let us guide you in scheduling. We suggest that you make your first new set appointment a minimum of 4 weeks before your big day. During that first visit, you will have a 15-minute consultation with your lash artist to go over the process and to discuss the look you are wanting. We suggest that you bring in inspirational photos of lashes that you love so that we have something to go off of. These photos are only ideas to work from. Your lashes will not look exactly like this, as all eye shapes and sizes are different. We will then schedule a fill appointment for you about two weeks out, as all-natural lashes have a shed cycle and your extensions will shed with those natural lashes. During this appointment, tweaks can be made to your lashes to make sure that you love your new look. The final appointment should be booked as close to the actual day of the wedding as possible to ensure that those lashes are perfect as you head off for your special day!
Check for Allergies
At Lashology we use a high-quality bonding agent to apply our lashes. Regardless of quality, however, on rare occasions, some clients are sensitive to it. The last thing you want on one of the most photographed days of your life is an allergic reaction. That’s why we suggest coming to see us four weeks before your intended nuptials if you have never had lash extensions before. That way you can test out whether or not you have any sensitivities to the lash glue, as well as make sure you are happy with the look. If you don’t want to invest in a whole new set of extensions without knowing if you may have a sensitivity, we do have quick 15-minute patch test appointments that can be scheduled a few days before your new set.
Choose Experienced Artists
Unfortunately, not every eyelash technician does a great job, and the last thing you want on your big day is a botched eyelash application. We have highly trained, licensed and experienced artists at Lashology. On top of that, we make sure to educate our clients on how to care for their lashes after they leave our salon to ensure that you get the most out of your investment.
