Pregnancy is one of the most wonderful experiences in our life. Everyone wants to look beautiful and elegant during this time. If a customer asks for a set of eyelash extensions, you should know if that is possible or not. Let’s go deeper into this topic.
Is it possible to apply eyelashes during pregnancy?
The old adage - never ask a woman if she is pregnant doesn't apply to eyelash extensions. Whenever someone undergoes cosmetic treatment, it must always be disclosed whether they are pregnant or not. How you deal with it? Can you risk applying eyelash extensions on a pregnant woman?
If, before pregnancy, a woman regularly underwent the eyelash extension procedure, then during this period, she can do as well. A big myth – women cannot get fresh nails, eyelash extensions and go to the hairdresser, while waiting for a child. This is not true. During pregnancy, a woman’s body begins to work a little differently. The reaction to different substances is very individual for everyone, and one of the contraindications for building up is a hormonal jump in the body. The hormonal background of a pregnant woman is not every day the same and it's nothing to worry about. For many customers the eyelash extension treatment occurs gently, without mood swings.
If there is a fear of allergies, it is better to conduct a speed patch test in advance. You can drip a small drop of eyelash glue on the customers wrist and wait for the reaction. If there is no allergic reaction, feel free to carry out the extension procedure.
Tips for pregnant customers
If you have a pregnant customer and you want her to feel comfortable while doing eyelash extensions, we have some tips for you:
- For a pregnant woman it can become extremely uncomfortable to lie on the back for a long time. They also need to use the toiled more often. Always plan more time with pregnant women (approximately 30 minutes more). The next customer shouldn’t have to wait any longer.
- A simple trick to make pregnant women more comfortable during eyelash extension treatment is to place them with a pillow on the outer side of the cosmetic bed. In this position they can relax best, and the baby becomes less stressed.
Is it possible to apply eyelash extensions during menstruation?
Menstruation is also a change in a woman’s body. It is not recommended to apply eyelash extensions on the first and second day of menstruation, because this is a special time of a very active change. Eyelash extensions can not only just crumble, they probably cannot stay safe on the natural eyelashes during the procedure. Despite the high-quality pre work of the eyelashes, which includes a primer, the eyelash extensions may not stick perfectly on the natural lashes.
