We're so excited you've entrusted us with your Treatment. We have many collective years of experience and all hope to make your time with us is as enjoyable as possible. Please review the following so that we can have a Happy, Fun & Professional relationship together.
PATCH TEST POLICY
Certain Treatments such as Lash/Brow Tinting, Lash/Brow Lifting and Lash Extensions will require a Patch Test at least 48 hours before we carry out your Treatment. A Patch Test will test all products used throughout the Treatment. This is to ensure that you do not have any allergic or adverse reaction to any ingredients used. You will be asked to sign to confirm that you have not had a reaction to the Patch Test, and to confirm that you are happy to continue with the Treatment.
TINT & LASH/BROW LIFT - Tint or Lift Patch Tests DO NOT require an appointment. Walk Ins accepted - The Patch Test involves placing a small amount of the Product behind your ears. Please leave the Tint/Lift product on for approx 12 hours. If you develop a reaction, it will show as Itchy Skin and/or Raised Skin. If you have not already done so, please wash off the Tint/Lift products from the skin and take an Anti Histamine. Any reaction more severe than slight irritation, then contact your GP or Local Walk In Centre.
LASH EXTENSIONS - Lash Extension Patch Test WILL need an appointment. Call to book - Please allow 15-20 minutes for the Patch Test. We will apply a few Lashes to your existing natural lashes. Please don’t expect these to last more than a day or two. If you develop a reaction, it will show as Itchy Skin and/or Puffy Skin/Eyelids. Removing the lashes applied with Baby Oil can help, take an Anti Histamine. Any reaction more severe than slight irritation, then contact your GP or Local Walk In Centre.
A LIST OF THE FULL INGREDIENTS OF ALL OUR PRODUCTS ARE AVAILABLE ON REQUEST. If you have any concerns regarding your Patch Test, please get in touch.
PLEASE DON’T BE OFFENDED IF WE INSIST ON A PATCH TEST, EVEN THOUGH YOU MAY HAVE HAD THE TREATMENT ELSEWHERE
PLEASE DON’T ASK US IF YOU CAN SIGN A WAIVER TO AVOID THE PATCH TEST
