If you would like to book a (lash lift, temporarily unavailable due to stock availability) Eye brow or Eyelash TINT, Please book an allergy test & after testing positive each time & after each covid vaccine or booster

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? Ideally 48 hours in advance for a lash lift & 24 hours for an eyelash or brow tint. 24 hours is ABSOLUTE MINIMUM. 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 2 week 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 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 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.

Please understand that every precaution we implement is to protect you as you have one beautiful pair of eyes.
