A patch test is required for a lift or tint, at least 48 hours before treatment is carried out. If you have had a test for tinting and lash lifts with us before we will still need to do a new patch test. Insurance, suppliers and Covid all got involved in this annoying (but completely necessary) decision. This will be done in reception or at an appointment, it’ll take 5 minutes. Without having a new patch test we won’t be able to do your tinting. Please note if there is a change in your medical history we will need to do another patch test. This includes a vaccination.
If you have not had a test or tint within 6 months you will also require a new patch test.
LASH LIFT INCLUDING LASH TINT
A lash lift simply alters the shape and colour of your natural lashes. … The treatment involves lifting each individual lash, before tinting them for thicker, darker, longer looking lashes.

If you would like to book a Lash lift, Eyebrow or Eyelash TINT, please book an allergy test when:
After testing positive for Covid or think you may have had it.
After each Covid Vaccine or Booster
Or if its been over 6 months since your last tint/lift.
Why? Over time your body can develop sensitivities due to medication, stress & illness including Covid. This compromises your immune system & if you have had the corona virus or any health changes this may be heightened & it is our job to see that you are still tolerant to the tinting or lifting process.
When should I have the test? 48 hours in advance for a lash lift & 48 hours for an eyelash or brow tint. Then every 6 months or medical changes or after testing positive or after each covid vaccine and booster.
But I had one less than 6 months ago? Hopefully I answered that in WHY, above. Also, we will only be covered by our insurers if you agree to have regular patch tests. Signing a waiver will not protect you if your skin reacts.
I’m waiting for my vaccination before I come to you, can I still have tinting or a lift? Yes, BUT the NHS are advising a 10 -14 day wait after each vaccination before testing, so as not to be confused with any side effects. 99% of people like yourself are normally fine, this precautionary advice.
If I forget to have a test and show up for my appointment anyway? This will result in full payment being taken for the appointment as you will have been instructed to make a booking to come to the salon for a patch test. We’d rather be treating you for your appointment after your test!
If I refuse to have a patch test? I‘m sorry, we will not be able to perform this treatment until you agree. It is for your safety. An allergic reaction can be mild or viciously extreme. If you need some understanding on this issue, click this link.
