Tanning & eyelash extensions - 01-12-13, 08:36 PM

Okay so I have a client who knows I'm getting trained in eyelash extensions soon and she's asked me a quite a good question..

Can she get a tan the same day as her eyelash extensions? Eg, before or straight after as a combined treatment.

For example, could she wear sunbed goggles straight whilst having a tan straight after having her eyelashes done so they don't get wet and she doesn't have to touch them when washing the tan off?

I'm mainly thinking of this for infill appointments as I could always provide a spray tan whilst patch testing (if they've already have a tan and tan patch test prior to this)

Not something I was considering before but she raised a good point.

Any advice experience would be helpful!

Yes she can. I have done this many times without any problems.
Eyelashes first and then tan, no need to wear goggles (she would get a ring around her eyes).

If you spray tan first you are going to be removing the tan from around the eyes. You need to do lashes first then the spray tan.

I also do the spray tan and lashes and I have to say I never do both treatment at the same day. I've been taught once u apply the lashes they should not get any watter, oil, spray tan, steam etc on them for at least 24 hours or the glue won't bond properly. I believe they know why they teach us that. It's not only about money but about being professional and keep your clients happy. If they require both at the same day I give them the option to not spray their face. Clients are usually happy with it as they use foundation anyway. Xx

I'm the same, I offer both but wouldn't encourage anyone to do both at the sane time. My aftercare states clients are not to wet their lashes for a minimum of 24 hrs. If they are adamant then I ensure I have told them and signed their record card to prove they have requested to be sprayed after my advice and should this have any adverse effect at all on the longevity if the lashes I will take no responsibility. Usually they quickly realise that they can find the time to pop bk the next day after all

I am going to be offering Spray Tan & Lashes as a package. You should definitely do the lashes first, then the tan.

I don't think the face would get wet enough to remove the lashes. The tan I use (I say that as I am not sure it is the same with all tans) dries in about 2 mins. It is not oily. I don't think it would affect the lashes at all, tbh.

The aftercare instructions are right,however i believe it also depends what tanning solution you use as you should avoid any oil to get in touch with the lashes so an oil based solution might have an impact on the lashes while a water based solution will be fine as it is merely a fine mist you are spraying

Unless your over spraying or have your gun settings well high then the lashes would never get "wet" from a spray tan. If a clients tan is wet at all then you have used far too much solution. A low setting using 40-50ml wouldn't result in a wet tan or wet lashes. It's best to check the tan your using but I've never had an issue x

in mobile and new to lashes. A client this week has asked if i can also tan when i do her lashes. Would it badly affect her lashes if i did the tan straight after? I don't think that much really goes on the face but i don't want to spend ages lashing to then ruin them with tan!

i was trained absolutely not to do this but at the same time trainer also said on a rare occasion she has done it! Help, such conflicting views from the person who is taught me doesn't help!

If you have a look above in the thread you can see that its fine to do it as long as you do the lashes first and you are best using a water based tan :O)

Hey, just thought I'd jump in and say I had this done once - lashes first then spray tan and my lashes lasted normal amount of time with no issues...
