Since 2010 Ooh La La Beauty Boutique has developed a reputation for offering amazing Eyelash Extensions and enhancement services in Adelaide. All staff have experience in the beauty industry and are trained under Ashlea, the salon founder, in her methods. Eyelash enhancement services have been the backbone of the business since it origins and a major factor to the overall business success to date. Our team of Lash Technician’s pride themselves on tailoring different looks for clients ranging in ages from 16-70. Come in and see why we are Adelaide’s choice, whether you’re wanting Classic, Hybrid or Volume Eyelash Extensions.
Eyelash extensions have been our most popular service since 2010 with women adding a little bit of glamour to their everyday lives. Why not, we deserve it!
Our Lash Technicians specialise in applying unique eyelash extensions in looks from Natural to Glamorous. Your initial appointment involves a consult to assess what look you require.
WE do not only do one look of lashes. Our client’s lashes vary in lengths of 7mm-16mm, thicknesses of .07, 1.5mm and 2mm. Offering relaxed curls to a complete curl, Classic Extensions, Luxe Volume Extensions and Even our Hybrid sets which offer a blend of the two variety of lashes. Your lash look can evolve as your life does, by changing lengths of the lashes and also the placement.
The Lash Technicians at Ooh La La Beauty Boutique have been making over ladies eyelashes since 2010. In that time, founder Ashlea Battaglia has tried almost every product on the market. All eyelash enhancement services offered at Ooh La La Beauty Boutique have been created and completed under Ashlea’s own brand of curated products and training frameworks Luxe Lash Concepts.
Our eyelash enhancement services are from products within this range, sourced by Ashlea from various international manufacturers. Ashlea continues to search for new products, both for in the treatment room and for our client’s aftercare. Each year Ashlea attends various international beauty conferences across the globe meeting manufacturers in person, ensuring we are offering the newest techniques and products to our clients.
We strive for our Eyelash Extensions to last so that refills are less frequent, saving our clients money. A Full Set will last anywhere between 4-6 weeks with refill appointments recommended between 2-3 weeks. Each client is different due to factors such as age, natural lash length and condition, lifestyle and aftercare. We offer a range of refill prices starting at $30 for a classic refill (available weekly only). All new clients requiring a refill of another salon’s work will require a $80 45 minute appointment.
Eyelash Extensions are often thought of as high maintenance or a hassle but any of our clients will tell you, they are the quite the opposite. We are always being told how “easy” and “quick” it is for our clients to complete their daily grooming routine with Eyelash Extensions applied. Not to mention how lovely it is not wearing mascara or having to worry about removing eye make up.
Correct application by a trained and experienced lash technician will ensure no damage to your natural eyelashes. Eyelashes, like any hair on the human body are constantly growing and replacing. You are not born with one set of eyelashes to last your whole lifetime. The life span of an eyelash is anywhere between 30 and 90 days.
Yes, we have seen damage to natural eyelashes due to Eyelash Extensions. Each time the clients have selected operators who are inexperienced or untrained. Or clients have requested lengths and thicknesses against the operators recommendations and long term weight of the extensions can affect the natural lashes.
It is important to remember that long term, no love is lost, after 90 days the damage has grown out.
Eyelash Extensions are an investment, therefore we aim to provide all information so clients can make an informed decision. Eyelash Extensions are an unregulated service, which is a contributing factor to the horror stories that can circulate. Essentially you get what you pay for and recommendations are a MUST! We have spent many hours fixing and removing the work of bad Eyelash Extension technicians and have seen the following:
Our growth and success had been greatly attributed to word of mouth referrals by our clients. We stand behind our work 100% due to our lash application experience. Communication is key and if you feel as though the end result is not what you had in mind we are willing to work with you to provide a solution. We want all our clients to love their lashes as much as we love applying them.
If you have a history of eye sensitivity this may not be the service for you. In some instances, regardless of the therapist’s technique, the adhesive can irritate the eye. If you have previously had an allergic reaction to one glue you will react to all, due to their ingredient make-up. Strengths of adhesives only differ due to the ratios of each ingredient.
Allergic reactions do occur but are extremely rare. Since 2010, completing over 90,000 Eyelash Extension Services not 1 client has had a severe reaction from the initial services. All clients reactions have built gradually.
If you have had ANY SORT of reaction before visiting Ooh La La Beauty Boutique, we will NOT be held accountable for your choice to get your lashes done. If any of our customers have an allergic reaction to the glue within the first 12 hours we will remove the Lashes free of charge.
Initial service charge will not be refunded. In the rare event that a client is unsatisfied with the end result, we do not refund due to ‘change of mind’. We will endeavour to work with you so that your expectations are met as close as possible.
For removals an additional appointment will be required this is at the client’s cost of $40.
Semi-permanent, synthetic, silk or mink eyelash extensions are glued one by one onto client’s natural eyelashes (Not the skin) by using a specially formulated glue that last 2-6 weeks. Not to be confused with DIY strip or individual flare eyelashes that last no longer than a one night stand. Semi Permanent eyelash extensions allow clients to achieve a beautiful, full, luscious and long sets of lashes that are natural and you won’t even know they are there.
Absolutely, we cannot stress the importance of choosing an eyelash technician who has been taught by a qualified and experienced person. Not a week goes by at Ooh La La Beauty Boutique where we don’t receive an SOS call from damsels in distress due to dodgy Adelaide operators. There are many eyelash extension operators who are claiming to have been professionally trained but have been self taught via online broadcasting sites and these operators are also using poor quality products bought online.
Normal everyday ladies who are time poor and love to wake up looking amazing. There is no age limit, however if you are under 16 we will require your parents or guardians consent.
Using two sets of specifically designed tweezers, the therapist selects a single natural eyelash and applies a synthetic lash to the top approximately 2mm from the eyelid so neither the glue or the lash has contact with the skin.
The procedure will take approximately 1 hour for a full set and approximately 30-45 minutes for a half set and refill appointments start at 15minutes. It is a meticulous procedure that requires patience and concentration so therefore it should not be rushed so that clients can leave with a perfect set of lashes. You relax with your eyes closed and there is no pain as this is a non-invasive procedure. Often clients are so relaxed they fall asleep.
As the glue has a fast bonding time (approx 3seconds) it cannot be applied when a client has their eye open there fore it is impossible to apply yourself.
At the Eyelash Boutique it is important that our clients are comfortable therefore, we use soft under eye pads specifically designed for eyelash extensions. We never use surgical tape or lash tint paper, which are uncomfortable for the client.
Yes, but you won’t need mascara and you may even find you won’t need eyeliner, but you can still use eyeliner and eye shadows as usual but remember to remove with a product that does not contain oil of any kind as this will affect the glue. At Ooh La La Beauty Boutique we have specifically designed eye make up remover pads, which are pre moistened, and are great for removing eye make up without the need for excessive rubbing. We also sell ASAP daily Facial Cloths which are a shammy like finish, having no strands allows you to wipe these over the eye area without the worry of getting caught on loose strands as you would with a store bought facial wipe or a face washer. It is important to remember that wiping down towards the lashes will cause a build up of makeup on the lashes and may lessen the life of them. Always wipe to the side.
You won’t have to. You can roll out of bed looking great and best of all it will make your lashes look like you’re wearing mascara 24/7 without the clumping, streaking and smudging look that you get with mascara. No more running and streaking mascara which is fantastic for brides on their special day. At Ooh La La Beauty Boutique we sell specifically designed mascara that is easily removed by the eye make up remover pads we sell.
Approximately 3-6 weeks if you respect your new lashes and take care of them. Remember this is a semi-permanent beauty procedure. Do not be duped by those who promise “permanent” extensions or attachments that last for 2+ months. A real lash’s life cycle is around 30 days, and as yours grow and fall out, so will the synthetic ones that are attached. If your hair and nails grow quickly then that may indicate that your lashes also are growing, shedding and renewing themselves quickly so you may find that your lashes will not last as long as someone whose hair growth is slow. Your life style and what work you do will also make a difference how long they last. A ladies lashes working in the food industry where there is a lot of heat, steam and oil may not last as well as a lady who works in an air-conditioned office. Eyelash extensions will not last for three months; this is false advertising by salons and inexperienced people.
As explained above the lash has a growth cycle and unfortunately it is hard to determine which lash is ready to fall out naturally so it is unpredictable when applying the synthetic lashes. Each day we can loose 3-5 natural lashes, but often they fall out unnoticed unless they fall into your eye, but when eyelash extensions are applied we are more aware of when they shed as we know the extensions are there plus they are longer, darker and thicker. If you sleep on your stomach with your face squashed into the pillow or you favor sleeping on one side you may notice the lashes may not last as well as the other side.
Refills are when the natural eyelash has fallen out (due to the eyelash cycle) and there has been an extension lash applied to it. You will require refills every 2-4 weeks if you would like to achieve a full, fresh set of lashes consistently. At Ooh La La Beauty Boutique we take the time to remove any eyelash extensions that have either grown out to far or are not sitting correctly. Please not that we do not stack the lash extensions as other operators do.
If you become unsettled or claustrophobic easily this may not be the service for you. You can open your eyes HOWEVER it is ONLY when you have notified the Technician that you deem it necessary. This allows the technician to make sure the glue has set and so we do not scratch you eye with our tweezers.
