Closer look at a Volume ReLash

The following pictures were taken to show that when applied correctly, the natural lashes will still grow with the extensions attached. During a relash/fill appointment, your trained/certified/licensed technician will GENTLY remove the old extensions and apply new ones.

This was taken during a volume ReLash appointment. The client had a 2D removed and replaced with a new 2D. (2D means two extensions attached to one natural lash, this was done using .07 diameter extensions)

Eyelash Enhancements, Allergies and Allergic Reactions…

While reading posts from fellow lash stylists around the world on Facebook I decided to share this important post. Those who are not part of that private online group, fellow lash stylists and anyone who is currently and/or thinking about wearing eyelash enhancements, this should be read:

Allergic reactions are very complex because they can be caused by many different factors relating to the eyelash extensions and they can manifest themselves at any time and in many different ways. Some people experience redness and swelling of the eyelid close to the lash line. Some people have diffused redness and swelling all around the general eye area. Most of the time the redness and swelling is accompanied by itching.

There are several different causes of reactions and it is important to be able to distinguish a true allergic reaction from simple irritation. Irritation also has several different causes and differs from a true allergy in that it does not cause the body to produce histamine. Sometimes the only way to distinguish between an allergy and irritation is to see if the symptoms respond to anti-histamine medications such as Benedryl. Because we cannot give medical advice to our clients, we sometimes have to refer them to their family doctor if we suspect that they may be having a true allergic reaction. So how can an eyelash specialist recognize the causes and symptoms of a true allergic reaction? The following is a list of variables that must be considered:

1. Medical tape
2. Cyanoacrylate
3. Eyelash lid irritation
4. Seasonal allergies
5. Eye irritation
6. Inflammatory skin conditions

Please check back to this blog on further explanations of each point. At EyeDeux we take the profession of certified and licensed lash stylists seriously and want to assure or clients new and seasoned that we have their best interest at heart.

Russian technique is NOW available in Virginia at EyeDeux

Almost two years ago the latest technique with eyelash extensions started in Russia. The Owner of EyeDeux has traveled to learn this new technique and has brought it to VA! What is is called? VOLUME LASHES!

What are Volume Lashes?
2D-6D lashes or Volume lashes are thicker, fuller lashes compared to the classic semi-permanent extensions. This technique was started in Russia and has taken the Lash World by storm….EyeDeux is the FIRST in the Hampton Roads are of Virginia to offer this technique.

How does Volume eyelash extensions differ from the Classic eyelash extensions?
Classic eyelash extensions are attached to your natural lashes at a ratio of 1:1. The Volume technique allows 2-6 eyelash extensions to be attached to 1 natural lash.

Is this safe/healthy for my natural lashes?
YES! The eyelash extensions used for the Volume technique are much thinner in diameter therefore very little weight is added to your lashes including the adhesive.

How do I know I can get Volume lashes?
Consult your trained technician! Most people are able to get at least the 2D volume effect while some are able to get 6D. This is based upon the health of your natural lashes, their diameter and length.

Can I get more length with this new Volume technique?
NO! The focus is on VOLUME. If the extensions are too long, more weight is added to your natural lash and most likely to shed prematurely.

Does this process cost more?……
