​Who doesn't want to have the best?

Before Your Next Appointment

Eyelash Extensions are becoming the new norm. While they have been around for a long time now, they have never been more popular.

While some care guidelines can differ, at Oak & Eve Beauty we think that you should know exactly what to do, and how to do it.

So here it is:

  • Cleanse your lashes with an oil free foaming cleanser to remove all makeup, dirts and oils Oil and Makeup build up on your lashes stops the extensions from adhering to your natural lash and causes rapid lash loss.
  • Ensure all moisturiser and lotions are not applied to your eye area.
  • Avoid Caffeine for tow hours before your appointment (this makes your eyes flutter)
  • Wear comfortable clothes so you can relax while lying down
Following your appointment:
  • Lashes are free to get wet straight after your appointment but avoid steamy, sweaty situations such as gym work outs, saunas and hot, steamy showers.
  • Cleanse daily with a glycol & oil free cleanser. Glycol is the active ingredient in our lash extension remover and oil building up on lashes cause them to slip off the natural lash.
  • If using makeup and water proof eyeliners etc daily, you can use micellar water to cleanse, However, Micellar contains Glycol so its important you still cleanse it off afterwards to keep your lashes in good condition.
  • Avoid using mascara.
  • Do not pull or rub your extensions.
  • Brush daily.
  • Avoid high heat like hair dryers on your lashes, they can straighten out like natural hair does in heat.

No one likes a patchy tan. Let's put an end to tacky tanning, shall we?

For Traditional spray tanning we use Bondi Sands, These are our top tips:

  • Exfoliate, shave and moisturise at least 48 hours before your tan is applied.
  • Moisturise again 24 before your appointment and lightly exfoliate with a mitt.
  • Shower as close to your tan as possible but ensure your skin and hair is dry at your appointment.
  • Do not wear any lotions, creams, oils etc including deodorant. They act as a barrier to your tan and can make the tan apply unevenly.

For our lovers of Eco Tan, we have some slightly different tips as it will be different to what you would normally do. 

  • Exfoliate, shave and moisturise 48 hours before your tan is applied. Eco Tan requires a small amount of surface skin cells to absorb into. Without this, your tan will just wash away.
  • Moisturise again 24 before your appointment.
  • Shower as close to your tan as possible but ensure your skin and hair is dry at your appointment.
  • Do not wear any lotions, creams, oils etc including deodorant. They act as a barrier to your tan and can make the tan apply unevenly.
Following your tan:
  • Wait the appropriate amount of time you need to achieve the colour you're wanting.
  • Do not get wet before you are ready to shower your tan off.
  • In your first shower, do not use soap or cleansers, instead rinse with water and wipe the tan gently from your skin.You may notice some colour coming off your skin. This is the guide colour to help us apply your tan more evenly. Your tan will develop over the following 24 hours.
  • Use moisturiser daily to ensure your tan wears evenly, Drink plenty of water to ensure your skin does not become dehydrated.

Before your waxing or threading appointment, please ensure you make us aware of anything that may affect your appointment. This includes but is not limited to:​

  • Botox or filler appointments in the previous 3 days.
  • Use of Retinol on your skin.
  • Avoid strong skin treatments for 7 days prior such as Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion etc.
  • To help keep any skin sensitivity to a minimum, avoid alcohol and exercise for at least 12 hours prior to your appointment. Both can increase circulation and inflammation.

Getting a makeover is always an exciting pampering experience. To help your makeup last as long as possible make sure your skin is hydrated, exfoliated and clean. If you have any break outs, do not squeeze them as it is easier to conceal over smooth skin than broken skin.

If you have any photos of the makeup style you would like, feel free to bring them along. It's always a great place to start discussing the makeup and what you are wanting to achieve.

Makeup Lessons take up to 1.5 hours depending on what you would like to learn. If you would like to record or film the lesson on your phone during your time in the salon, you are more than welcome to. We will go over all aspects of what you would like to learn and help you achieve the look you are going for.

During the lesson, we will recommend products, techniques and skills that you can do at home. The more you practice these skills, the faster they will become a habit. Feel free to contact us after your lesson via phone or email with any questions you may have.

There are a number of things that can impact how long lasting your teeth whitening treatment will be but the preparations are very important. Follow the below instructions to help you achieve the whitest smile after the Cosmetic Teeth Whitening treatment at our salon.

  • Brush your teeth thoroughly as closed to your appointment as possible.
  • After brushing your teeth avoid strong coloured food and drink.
  • Drink 1-2 glasses of water directly before your appointment.
After your appointment:
  • For 60 minutes following your appointment only drink water.
  • For the following 24-48 hours avoid strong coloured foods such as red wine, coffee, tea. Basically anything that would stain a white shirt.
After your treatment you may experience some sensitivity so it is important that you care for your teeth well in the lead up to and following the treatment.

Before your lash lift and tint appointment please ensure you have removed any water proof eye makeup such as mascara and eye liner.
