5 REASONS WINTER IS THE BEST TIME FOR LASH & BROW TREATMENTS. by Ui Takemasa

1. Artificial heating and extremes in temperature can dry out your natural lashes and brows over winter.  To combat this, look for keratin-based treatments such as KRT-ONE, which aim to retain moisture in your natural lashes by improving the integrity of your hair.  Or tryRevitalash, a lash conditioner that protects against breakage while improving health, flexibility and strength during the cold months.  Find both at upsalons.com

 

2. Taking a break from mascara.  Studies say that mascara can badly dry out and damage your natural lashes. By avoiding mascara and opting for professionally applied lash extensions; lash tinting or lash lifts, you can ensure you are giving your natural lashes the best attention ever in the difficult winter months.

 

3. Getting that elegant winter look.  We love smouldering, intense lash designs and think they match perfectly with the moody winter season.  Plus, while we love wrapping up in something cosy (and often practical) during winter, we love how volume lashes can lend that touch of elegance when we need it!

 

4. Beating the winter blues.  We all need to take time out for ourselves, especially when it’s grim and miserable outside. Need a quick pick-me-up?  UP’s treatments start at just $35 for brow sculpting and $95 for classic lashes (subtle set) with a stylist.

 

5. Hacking your morning routine. Waking up and getting through your morning routine can be a real drag in winter.  UP’s lash extensions, lash lifts and semi-permanent brow treatments are all designed to help cut down on the morning routine, making sure you will always be looking your best, no matter the weather or how many times you hit the snooze button!

TOP 7 SECRETS FOR THE MOST AMAZING LASHES EVER by Ui Takemasa

Want to move to the next level, with the best lashes you have ever experienced?  We give you an inside look at how one of the top professionals deliver incredible results – and how you can maximise your look for a long-lasting effect.

 

1.   Ask your stylist to design a look that is best for you and the occasion.  

Not all lash designs are created equal.  A skilled stylist can create dramatically different looks that suit your personality and occasion.  Choose a bold look for that special event, a natural look for everyday wear; a smoky sexy look for that first date or a dramatic, show-stopping look for your wedding day.

 

2.   Choose a look that is right for your natural features.

An experienced lash stylist will understand how to enhance your eye design based on your face type and your unique features. Celebrate your special characteristics, ethnicity and personal style by tailoring a look that is as unique as you.

 

3.   Keep your natural lashes healthy, for ultimate longevity of your extensions. 

Avoid excess sun, chlorinated or salt water, or heat. If you are travelling somewhere warm on your holidays make sure to tell your stylist and put a programme in place to help!

 

4.   Refresh your lash extensions regularly.

Keep your natural lashes in the best condition by getting a full removal and new set every 6 months! Take advantage of lash lift and tinting treatments before applying your new set and look forward to even fuller and bolder looking lashes.

 

5.   Avoid harmful products that can damage your lash extensions.

Mascara, oil-based cleansers, liquid eyeliners and other oil-based cosmetics can all damage your lash extensions and reduce their longevity.  We love oil-free products like CONTOUR CLEANSE micro-foam along with their makeup removal towel and sponge range.

 

6.   More is sometimes less.

 A skilled stylist will know that longer lashes, and more of them, are not always better.  You can create a bigger impact by choosing the right design for you. Fewer lashes with a range of lengths, curls and thicknesses will create a bolder, more natural look – and will be more likely to last.

 

7.   Book in for regular and frequent infills.

 Regular infills will help you maintain a consistent look and will actually enhance the longevity of your extensions by looking after your natural lash health.  It is also a great opportunity for your stylist to check your lash condition and make any adjustments necessary.
