All your questions about Lash Extensions Answered!
December 14, 2017
Hi guys! So yesterday i went to The Dollhouse Beauty Studio in Jumeirah to get the SVS treatment done with Nouveau lashes. For those of you who do not know, Nouveau is a global favorite when it comes to all things lashes. Their innovations be it for extensions or even in lash products like their serums and conditioners etc are top notch! I went for the SVS treatment, which literally stands for Speed, Volume and Style!
I am going to answer a few questions I received below to make it simple!
How does it work?
Based on the style you need i.e. dramatic or natural and your original lash length, the technician carefully glues individual lashes on. The treatment takes up to 50-60 minutes and it does NOT hurt. If you have allergies in the eye or irritation, it is not recommended as the glue may not suit you etc. I do not have any such irritation, so the only thing that I felt during the treatment was a very minor tingling feeling in my nose because of the glue.
How much does it cost? Who did it for you?
How long does it last?
It costs AED 500 at The Dollhouse Beauty Studio and refills are approx AED 350
I got the service done from Kyla who has over 10 years of experience just in lashes in Dubai! She was AMAZING and also very sweet x
The first set of extensions are suppose to last you 3-4 weeks. This depends on how you maintain them and if you have oily skin they tend to fall faster is what the therapist told me. Also, when I say maintenance, I mean, do you follow the instructions they give you, do you not rub your eyes like a mad person etc
I have heard the lashes start falling off in 2-3 days, is that true?
Well for me it has been literally 24 hours and so far no lash has fallen. If I apply common sense, I do assume that lashes one by one will start following off because of exposure to things like water etc, makeup etc. I think the fact that they will fall cannot be changed but how soon do they fall or not depends on how you maintain them
What were some of the things you are supposed to do and not after getting the extensions?
- They give you a mascara wand, brush your hair in the up and down direction morning and night.
- Take lots of selfies to flaunt your lashes
- DO NOT apply mascara for a week at least or at all. Point is you won't need it
- DO NOT introduce water to the lashes on the day of the treatment
- DO NOT apply anything on the area, including makeup remover on the day. I did, even though I tried doing it very carefully, it still went around the eyes and caused minor irritation. Better to avoid all together
- DO NOT rub your eyes like a mad person. I do that when I wake up in the morning usually lol
Does it feel heavy on the eyes? Like someone is sitting on your eyes?
I am someone who is VERY comfortable with fake lashes on so for me this was nothing. To be honest, if you get it done from a good place and if you are going for a natural look for your lashes, you should be good x
Is it worth it?
Well if you are somebody who loves that extra lift in your look for sure! What I loved about the Nouveau experience was that it can be tailor made. Some people love the drama in their lashes while some don't and they are able to give you what you want! Or if you are constantly up and about, going from events one after the other, then this is quite a breather!
Hope you enjoyed this post from your plus size blogger in Dubai. If you have more questions please feel free to comment below. I do intend to update this post on 2 weeks to see how far my lashes last me x See you!
