Waxing Aftercare

Please read these after care notes carefully and follow our recommendations. We take great care in our salon to protect you from infection, and in addition to our normal salon hygiene routines we have applied a soothing antiseptic lotion after your treatment.

 

It is important to you to remember to take extra care of the waxed area, especially within the first 24 hours. When a large number of hairs have been removed the area will be vulnerable, and legs for example can easily pick up an infection if not cared for.

 

Avoid sunbathing, sunbed treatments, and very hot baths for 48 hours as the waxed areas will be extra sensitive to heat. Avoid friction from nylon material or tight clothing.

 

Avoid using perfumed body lotions or creams. We recommended that you use our soothing antiseptic after wax lotion daily for 3 or 4 days after treatment to minimise any risk. Always wash your hands before applying the lotion. If you experience permanent redness or discomfort consult your doctor

Tanning Pre & After Care Advice.

Please follow this carefully this will ensure your tan will develop properly and last as long as possible.

 

Pre Care

  • Wax or Shave  at least 24 hours before Spray Tan

  • Exfoliate with oil free Gel and Gloves at least once but preferably for 2 or 3 Days prior to Spray Tan

  • Do Not Use Shower Gels, soaps, deodorants, moisturisers, perfumes, make-up that could contain oils or cause your Tan to turn green.

  • Remove all jewellery.

  • Make sure hair is dry and tied up if long

  • We Supply disposable caps and Thongs but you can wear some old underwear if you prefer

  • Please Wear Loose Dark Clothing to go home in and Ladies no Bra Please

 

After Care

  • Continue to wear Dark Clothing or nothing if possible until you wash off the tan. Tight Clothing such as Bra, leggings, jeans, fitted tops, boots and jewellery will rub and cause patches, lines and streaking.

  • Do Not touch the skin until the tan is washed off as it can transfer to your hands and make them orange

  • Avoid  Water and Exercise and apply talc to any areas prone to sweating  especially in hot weather

  • Do Not wear Make-up, Moisturisers, perfumes or deodorants until your first shower

  • Do Not sit on leather or light coloured furniture without covering it first.

  • Do Not Shower for 2 Hours or 30 mins for Accelerated Tan, wash twice, the tan will continue to develop after washing.

  • Do Not use soap products with a PH Balance of 5.5 or higher, such as Dove products as it will fade your Tan

  • After showering,  avoid Glycolic Acids or Sodium Sulphate that are in moisturisers and hair removal creams, if you need to shave do it lightly without  scraping the skin

  • Avoid Hot Showers, baths, saunas, swimming pools as your tan will fade more quickly.

  • Do Not rub your skin after bathing, it’s better to pat dry or dry naturally and apply a Tan Extender

  • In the Sun always wear a Sun protection Factor of 15 or more.

  • After 3-5 days the dead skin cells will build up, you should gently exfoliate and apply a Tan Extender which will prolong the length or your tan and help your tan fade more evenly.

Semi-Permanent  Eyelashes

To get the most from your eyelash extensions  you need to follow these aftercare tips, these are vital during the first 24 hours to.....

Avoid the break down the lash adhesive used to attach your extensions

Avoid getting your eyelash extensions wet

Avoid hot steam from saunas, showers or Jacuzzis

Do not touch your eyelash extensions 

DO NOT....

Perm or tint your eyelash extensions

Use any type of curlers on your eyelash extensions

Use oil free makeup remover to clean eyelashes and eye area

Use any oil based (waterproof) mascara

Use oil based makeup

Be gentle, avoid rubbing, touching, pulling or picking your eye lashes

 

Eyelashes grow between 7mm and 9mm in length, growing for 30 days and resting for 60 days. After this they start to naturally fall out, and a new growth cycle begins.

Eyelash extensions are a semi-permanent solution to fuller, gorgeous, and sexier lashes. The permanence is dependent on the client following strict after-care advice at home. To keep your eyelash extensions looking fresh we recommend an Infill Appointment every 2-3 weeks, any longer and a full set will be required

Infill Appointments 

Prices for infill appointments are for lashes that have been treated properly as per after care instructions and have at least 50% of existing eyelash extensions remaining, otherwise extra costs may be incurred. 

T & C Apply

If after following this advise you have any problems with lash loss in the first week, not caused by rubbing, pulling, touching or picking, then please contact the salon for the problem to be rectified immediately, any appointment must be kept in order for us to put right any problems as soon as possible, failure to come back as arranged could mean too much time has passed for us to rectify the problem due to the natural lash cycle, in which case when it becomes near the 2 week cycle an Infill charge will apply. If your Lashes have been picked, pulled. rubbed or touched excessively then the natural Lashes will be missing too, in which case nothing can be done to rectify this. No Refunds will be issued for lash loss as this can be easily rectified when we are given the chance.

Discount Vouchers, Prizes or Offers are not in conjunction with any other Offer or Discount apart from PrePaid Gift Vouchers which can be used with any Offer. All offers must be quoted when Booking an appointment.

Treatment times will be kept to wherever possible but occasionally times can run over if the Client requires extra work on things like Acrylic Nails, if there are breakages etc. where extra work is needed. An extra charge may be applied if the client has left too long between Infills and Backfills and extra work is needed.

N.B. I'm sorry i have to do this but due to appointments being in big demand, and many no shows, all appointments over 30 minuets will now require a £10 Booking Fee and £20 for Special Events or Pamper Days, the Booking Fee will be deducted from the treatment price on the day of your appointment. It would be helpful if you could arrive 5 minuets before your appointment time so the treatment can commence on time, if you are late, it could mean i wont have time to do your treatment before the next client is due, being late or failure to attend your appointment without 24 hours notice can result in non repayment of booking fee. Appointments can be changed with 24 hours notice, allowing time for the appointment to be refilled . Thanks for your understanding x
