What you can expect during the lash application

As an Xtreme Lashes® Certified Lash Stylist, only the highest standards in the industry are upheld by iCandi. Sanitation, safety and client satisfaction are at the forefront of all applications. Pre-consult is required before all applications, which one must arrive a minimum of 20 minutes prior to their first appointment to complete beforehand. All client files are updated annually and are confidentially maintained for future lash styling reference purposes only. Please avoid drinking coffee 24 hours prior to arriving for your lash styling appointment. Arrive to your appointment without makeup and do not apply any sunscreens, lotions or creams to the face or eye area prior to appointment. Also, if you wear contacts, please bring a storage case in which you may remove your lenses prior to application. Bringing a pair of eyeglasses to wear home after the application is highly advised. Once an appointment is booked online a more in-depth email will be sent to you answering frequently asked questions prior to application and a checklist for consideration will also be included in the email in order to thoroughly pre-screen all eyelash extension candidates. A 24 hour cancellation policy is enforced and a credit card is required to book all appointments.  Should you feel you are not a good candidate after booking your appointment and carefully reviewing our frequently asked questions and/or checklist for consideration, contact Karina at iCandi Lash Loft directly immediately once you are aware of this and she will be sure to cancel the appointment without any incurred cancelation fees.  You may reach her directly at  323-790-6081 or by email at karina.48hourcnxl@icandilashloft.comEyelash extensions may be applied to anyone over the age of 18. Children /adolescents under the age of 18 must provide a letter from their eye doctor stating that it has been deemed sound for them to have the procedure performed, along with a letter from their parents stating they have consented to the procedure; and parents of minors MUST always be present at time of appointment.   However, it is not recommended for children under the age of 15.

So, your appointment is booked, now what?!  Be prepared for a luxurious slumber as the preparation of the application most often times lulls people off to a nourishing beauty sleep.  Aromatherapy is incorporated into every procedure along with relaxing sounds of nature's best lullaby, the waterfall effect.  The entire process is pain free and very often described as extremely soothing.  There is a preparation for the application which includes extensive cleansing and priming of the lashes for ultimate bonding of the adhesive to the eyelash and for proper curing of the adhesive, ensuring a durable and lightweight natural feel all while creating the most lush, beautifully styled lashes imaginable.  Men and women alike have often reported looking and feeling younger after having eyelash extensions applied.  The eyes are opened in ways mascara and eye make up just can not achieve alone.  Eyelash extensions have a dramatic effect in improving the overall look for men as the lashes applied to men are completely natural looking and add just enough volume to make the individual that lives behind the eyes, emerge with confidence and radiance!  It is for this reason that iCandi stands by the belief that everyone should have the procedure done at least once, to experience the sheer joy and inner luminance that abounds from having such a custom service performed. Each application is specifically tailored to each individual, taking into consideration the facial features, eye color, overall style preferences, as well as the individual desires and needs of the client. It is often understood that looking your best at a moments notice helps to build confidence. Well with iCandi, women and men alike will cut their effort and time commitment to look good on the go in half, all while maintaining their inner confidence on a regular basis. Saving time this day and age, in whichever way we may, is always worth the financial commitment. Once men and women discover this service, they will undoubtedly add the service to their repertoire of self-care must haves.
