what is your cancellation & no show policy?
we require 24 hours notice in order to cancel or reschedule any service. you will be considered a no show 5 minutes after your appointment time and you will need to reschedule for another day.
Avoid for at least 24 hours: heat, steam (including cooking over steaming stove top), sauna, water, oils, lotions, creams, shampoos, face washes, makeup remover wipes, or pads on lashes. the only approved product to put on immediately after a lift (that will not cause your lash lift to fall) is the 'elleebana ellevate mascara'.
avoid: face washes that are mainly oil as this can also cause lashes to drop prematurely.
we also advise that because the clients lashes are still malleable (shape shifting) a side sleeper or face sleeper can notice one or bother eyes can raise or drop, leaving the lasehs misshaped. sleeping on your back is best.
