Lash ExtensionsDo Lash Extensions damage your own lashes? They can do if not applied correctly, I NEVER put synthetic mink or silk lashes on ‘baby’ lashes, the weight of these lashes can cause damage to you own lashes, they are just too heavy. I leave these lashes allowing them to mature before an extension is placed on them, so the next time you visit for in fills these lashes should be ready to take the extensions and in the meantime new baby lashes would have grown through where your older lashes had dropped out with your usual lash cycle. Working with you own lash cycle is the best way to keep your lashes in good condition.
There have been reports online and in the press about damage caused by lash extensions. These reports are mainly due to inexperienced technicians that do not have the experience of several hundred procedures of eyelash extensions behind them and have not trained to a master technician level.
Ideally the best way to find a reputable technician is through recommendation, either from friends or checking out online reviews, it’s also worth checking out their qualifications and asking to see their portfolio of lash extensions they have actually completed and not just images of stock photos.
Any good technician will take time to complete a consulting session with you beforehand and be happy to answer any questions that you may have.
Is there any difference between the different brands of lash extensions such as Nouveau Lashes, Jinny Lashes, Lash perfect etc?
There are minor differences, I trained in Nouveau lashes to the master level but the main factor in ensuring a good set of eyelash extensions is down to the skill of the technician and not the brand.
Can lash extensions be placed on the bottom lashes?
Eyelash extensions can be placed on the bottom lashes and I have performed this procedure before. However, I do not usually recommend bottom lash extensions as it needs to be performed with the eyes open and therefore weaker glue that does have any fumes needs to be used.
The downside of this means that the bottom lashes do not last as long as the top lashes, it incurs an extra cost which is not necessary. I usually recommend a water based mascara to be used on the bottom lashes to give a more balanced look. It’s also cheaper!

Client TestimonialsJanette is an absolute rarity in the lash extension world - she's consistently the absolute best in her craft and maintains the highest standards! Her lashes are always long lasting and beautiful, without any growing out pains which are so common with less experienced beauticians/companies. I've had my lashes done by several different companies and people over the last 2 years and saw a real decline in the health/length/thickness of my own lashes (as a constant user). UNTIL I found Janette, who is so extremely helpful and knowledgeable about lashes (and many other treatments!) and within the second re-fill my own lashes were long and healthy again and the lash extensions were beautiful and complimentary. What's wonderful about Janette is her care for her clients, which is utterly unique. She always advises on the pros and cons of any treatments and recommends products/treatments that might help to achieve the look you want – never with a financial interest. She has NEVER steered me wrong. I would not trust another person to do any lash treatments...Sophie Ash
I have been going to see janet for years. And totally love having long lashes as mine are so short and totally blonde. So makes a massive difference. Love your work Janet..Shoooshoo
These lashes done by janette are the best beauty treatment I have ever had. I do not need to put any mascara on and they look fab. Long lasting. It’s a secret though. I couldn’t bear to not have them now so just worry about fitting into her busy schedule….Pepita Cummings
