Frequently Asked Questions
Do Nouveau Lashes damage the natural lash?
No. Nouveau Lashes do not damage the natural lashes unless incorrect after care takes place. The natural lash will not be damaged unless they are pulled out deliberately with the Nouveau Lashes attached to them. We advise each client on the most suitable length and thickness of lash based on their natural lash. Please take this advise seriously. Not everyone is suited to the longest or thickest extension.
Is Nouveau Lashes application painful?
Nouveau Lashes application is not at all painful; in fact it is considered one of the most relaxing beauty treatments available today. You are required to lay down with your eyes shut for a minimum of 90 minutes, when you open your eyes you will have long, naturally curved, beautiful lashes.
Are Nouveau Lashes suitable for everyone?
Nouveau Lashes are not suitable for everyone, especially if you are a low maintenance girl or guy with hardly any spare time, nor are Nouveau Lashes suitable for clients with no existing eyelashes. LVL Lash Lift is a great alternative, and requires no maintenance!
Are Nouveau Lashes expensive?
If you want a perfectionist to do your Nouveau Lashes its worth paying that little bit extra.
How long will Nouveau Lashes take?
A full application of Nouveau Lashes will take a minimum of 90 minutes, maximum 2 hours. Maintenance procedures will take around 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on how many the client has lost during their natural lash cycle.
How long do Nouveau Lashes last?
The average life cycle of a single natural lash is 90 days. The maximum time Nouveau Lashes last is 2 months, however it is not unusual for clients to loose a lash extension if it is placed on an old lash.
Why do you have to have maintenance?
Some Nouveau Lash extensions will begin to fall out at the end of the 2nd week; this is why you need to have maintenance every 2-3 weeks if you want your Nouveau Lash extensions to last and look fabulous. I also recommend the use of a coating sealant which I can supply on request. The max2 sealant should be applied every 2-3 days to help prolong and protect the bond between the natural and recently applied nouveau lash.
Are Nouveau Lash extensions similar to hair extensions?
Nouveau Lashes can be compared to hair extensions but in the hands of an inexperience hair extension technician you can damage your hair and your hair gets thinner. This is not the case with any lash extensions your eyelashes will not get shorter nor will they become sparse.
Are Nouveau Lashes adhesives safe?
Nouveau Contour have odourless medical grade adhesive for sensitive eyes and this does not come in contact with the skin or the eyes. The only substance that can cause reactions is the adhesive on the medical tape. The medical tape is our 2nd option used to seal down the lower lashes if the anti wrinkle pads are not sufficient. These clients are normally allergic to plasters.
