5 Things Your Lash Artist Wants You to Know
Lash artists are patient, creative, and sometimes, a bit silly. But, more than anything, they’re skillfully trained professionals who want to be treated with the same respect you give your doctor or your dentist.
Here’s a few things you should keep in mind before going to your next lash appointment.
It’s Important to Clean Your Lashes
Cleaning your eyelashes daily is imperative if you want your natural lashes to be healthy and long. Remember, it takes healthy, long lashes to wear eyelash extensions. Throughout the day, your skin produces a grotesque amount of oil and fluid that can clog your hair follicles. If your follicles are clogged, your lashes will not grow.
If you’re rolling your eyes right now, you might want to Google “Microscopic Demodex.” We guarantee you’ll wash your lashes half-way through your search.
Live a Healthy Lifestyle
Lash growth has a lot to do with your lifestyle – i.e. your diet, stress level, the supplements you take, etc. As you probably know, human hair is made from Keratin. Keratin is a protein that is effected by diet and stress.
Your hair is essentially an extension of your body and an overall reflection of your health. Stress can lead to thinning hair.
Eating a balanced diet and living a healthy lifestyle can make all the difference when it comes to eyelash growth.
Do Not Come to an Appointment Wearing Mascara
Coming to a lash appointment with mascara on your eyelashes is just as annoying as going to the dentist without brushing your teeth. If you arrive to a lash appointment with mascara on, your lash artist is will have to clean them, which of course, will take time.
It’s best to come to a lash appointment makeup-free.
We’re Not Made of Magic

Maintenance is Key
If you want your lashes to last (i.e. remain full and luscious) you must maintain them regularly. You should also be scheduling a filling every three to four weeks. Natural lashes shed as they grow, therefore, you’ll need to schedule regular touch-ups if you want to have the “brand new set” look.
