OMG Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are single synthetic lashes that is applied to natural lash for longer looking lashes. The synthetic lashes are applied to the natural lash with a semi-permanent certified bonding agent. A single extension is applied to a single lash, leaving the eyelashes and eyelids to move freely. They are applied carefully, one by one using specially designed tweezers. The whole process normally takes 1 – 2 hours depending on how many lashes are applied. At OMG Beauty Salon, our highly trained lash artist can apply eyelash extension safely within 30 minutes to 60 minutes. Back to top

 

 

How long do eyelash extensions last?
Generally eyelash extensions last until the natural lash falls out in its natural cycle usually 6 weeks. An eyelash extensions also depends on how well you take care for them. We recommend an infill every 2-3 weeks. Back to top

Can I tint my eyelash extensions?

No, eyelash extensions are made of synthetic fibre and it will not be able to absorb the tint. Plus adding pressure onto the new eyelash extensions will make eyelash extensions falling off prematurely. Best option is to get natural eyelash tinted before having eyelash extension done. Eyelash extensions come in different colours, so you can choose the desired colour when getting the eyelash extensions so there is no need to tint your lash extensions. Back to top

What is a Manicure?
A manicure is a cosmetic beauty treatment for the fingernails and hands. A manicure consists of filing and shaping of the free edge, pushing (with a cuticle pusher) and clipping (with cuticle nippers) any nonliving tissue (limited to cuticle and hangnails), treatments, massage of the hand, and the application of fingernail polish. Some manicures can include the painting of pictures or designs on the nails, or applying small decals or imitation jewels. Other nail treatments may include the application of artificial nail gel nails, tips, or acrylics, some of which are referred to as French manicures. Back to top

 

 

What is a Pedicure?
A pedicure is a cosmetic treatment of the feet and toenails, analogous to a manicure. Pedicures are done for cosmetic, therapeutic, and medical purposes and can help prevent nail diseases and nail disorders. Back to top

 

 

What Acrylic Nails?
Acrylic nails are combination of liquid monomer and powder polymer. They are noted for their transparency, resistance to breakage, and elasticity. Back to top

 

 

What are Gel Nails?
There are two types of gel, hard gel and soft gel. Hard gel gets its name because, once cured, it is tough enough to be made into a nail extension. Nail extensions are artificial nails created by using a nail product to extend the nail past the edge of the natural nail. Soft gel refers to the gel products that are too soft to create a nail extension. This includes gel polishes and thicker gels meant for gel-overlay services. Gel polishes are used for the increasingly popular gel polish manicures. These manicures, when done by caring, experienced, and trained professionals, are gentle to the natural nail and the polish stays intact on the nail for at least a couple of weeks with high shine and no cracking, peeling or chipping. The product used to create nail extensions using gel or gel nails is gel, not to be confused with acrylic nails, which are created using liquid monomer and polymer powder. All gel services are performed using some form of gel, which usually comes in pots of gel or bottles of gel polish. Gel also comes in a variety of colors. All forms of gel require curing, or hardening, under a UV or LED light. Back to top

 

 

What are Shellac Nails?
Shellac is the brand name for a new, patent pending nail product created by Creative Nail Design (CND). It is a hybrid, meaning half nail polish, half gel. The product can be applied similarly to nail polish on your natural nails (no sculpting or filing). It is cured through UV lighting, just like Gels. Back to top

 

 

What is a French Manicure?
French manicures can be made with artificial nails, which are designed to resemble natural ones and are characterized by lack of base color, or natural pink base nails with white tips. The nail tips are painted white, while the rest of the nails are polished in a pink or a suitable nude shade. However, it is also as common to perform a French manicure on natural nails. Another technique is to whiten the underside of the nail with white pencil and paint a sheer color over the entire nail. Back to top

 

 

Can Paraffin wax treatments burn my skin?
No. Hands can be dipped in melted paraffin wax for softening and moisturizing. Paraffin wax is used because it can be heated to temperatures of over 95 °F (35 °C) without burning or injuring the hand. The intense heat allows for deeper absorption of emollients and essential oils. The wax is usually infused with various botanical ingredients such as aloe vera, azulene, chamomile, or tea tree oil, and fruit waxes such as apple, peach, and strawberry, are often used in salons. Paraffin wax treatments are often charged in addition to the standard manicure nail treatments. Occasionally, lotion is rubbed on the hand before submersion into the paraffin bath. The hand is usually dipped more than once to allow a thicker wax coat to form, making the coating stay warm longer and less likely to break or tear prematurely. After the hands have been dipped in the wax, they are wrapped in either plastic or aluminum foil, or a special type of plastic bag or glove, then covered with a towel or special mitten to retain warmth. The hands are left for a few minutes before the paraffin is cooled and dried. Back to top

 

 

What are the common shapes of nails?
There are Square, Squoval, Round, Oval, Almond, Stiletto and Ballerina(Coffin). Back to top

 

 

How often should I have a Manicure and Pedicure?
For healthy hands and nails you should have your manicure done once every 2 weeks, for pedicure once every month. Back to top

 

 

What type of waxing are there?
Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different growth cycle. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, pubic area (called bikini waxing), legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet. There are many types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair. Strip waxing (soft wax) is accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is applied and pressed firmly, adhering the strip to the wax and the wax to the skin. The strip is then quickly ripped against the direction of hair growth, as parallel as possible to the skin to avoid trauma to the skin (i.e., bruising, broken capillaries, ingrown hairs caused by hair follicle trauma and lifting of skin). This removes the wax along with the hair. Strip-less wax (as opposed to strip wax), also referred to as hard wax, is applied somewhat thickly and with no cloth or paper strips. The wax then hardens when it cools, thus allowing the easy removal by a therapist without the aid of cloths. This waxing method is very beneficial to people who have sensitive skin. Strip-less wax does not adhere to the skin as much as strip wax does, thus making it a good option for sensitive skin as finer hairs are more easily removed because the hard wax encapsulates the hair as it hardens. The strip-less waxing method can also be less painful. Back to top

 

 

How paintful is the waxing treatment?
Using quality products and proper technique, the pain of waxing is significantly minimized. Generally everybody will feel some discomfort. Although the pain is not long-lasting, waxing can be painful when the strip is removed from the skin. Back to top

 

 

How long does it last before hair starts to grow?
Normal body hair grows in three stages. They are the anagen, catagen, and telogen phases. Each strand of hair on the human body is at its own stage of development. Once the cycle is complete, it restarts and a new strand of hair begins to form. The rate or speed of hair growth is about 1.25 centimetres or 0.5 inches per month, or about 15 centimetres or 6 inches per year. After under going scheduled waxing, you will notice a significant decrease in hair growth and thickness., over time you will notice that the hair that does return is thinner and finer. Back to top

 

 

What factors should be taken into account before under going body waxing?
The following factors are known to make those who are waxed more prone to "skin lifting," where the top layer of skin is torn away during waxing treatment:

  • Taking blood-thinning medications;
  • Taking drugs for autoimmune diseases, including lupus;
  • Taking prednisone or steroids;
  • Psoriasis, eczema, or other chronic skin diseases;
  • Recent sunburn;
  • Recent cosmetic or reconstructive surgery;
  • Recent laser skin treatment;
  • Severe varicose leg veins;
  • Rosacea or very sensitive skin;
  • History of fever blisters or cold sores (waxing can cause a flare-up);
  • Using Tretinoin, Tazarotene, Adapalene, Azelex, or any other peeling agent;
  • Using hydroquinone;
  • Recent surgical peel, microdermabrasion or chemical peel using glycolic, alpha hydroxy, salicylic acid, or other acid-based products.

Is there anything I should do or avoid after I wax?
Yes. Please do not work-out immediately following waxing as perspiration can cause rashes, irritation, redness and breakouts. Avoid exposure to the sun and tanning booths for 24 hours following a wax. Do not take a hot shower or use a hot tub for at least four hours following waxing. Back to top
