Absolutely loving the new Eyebrow Extensions, don’t know how many people are having these yet as it is relatively new, it’s fantastic for people that have hair loss through alopecia or have had chemotherapy, even people that have scarring around the brow area through having accidents and the hair growth has stopped, you’re able to cover up the gap so easily by placing the eyebrow extensions in this area, looks so natural as well you would never be able to tell. There are lots of different companies offering training in this treatment, some of them are so expensive though so it’s a good idea to shop around to find a bargain, some are even offering a kit with the training. I’m currently using Flirties products but I am looking at other companies to see how the glues compare as at the moment they only last 3 -4 days on the skin and up to 7 -10 days on the brow hairs, obviously as time goes on the glues will become stronger and last longer as they have done with eyelash extensions over the years. Because its difficult to put a price on this treatment due to each person being individual, with some only wanting a small area done and others having to make up a complete brow because their isn’t much hair there, it’s fairer to charge per 15 minute, so based on £30 per hour it makes this treatment £7.50 per 15 minutes which I don’t think is too bad. It may also be necessary to do a brow tint beforehand in which case if you’re feeling generous this can be done free of charge or add £4.00 to the treatment. Usually the client will come back 10 – 14 days later for a re-balance or a complete new set of brows depending on how many have fallen out since they were first done. It is really important that before anyone has this treatment a glue patch test is completed at least 24 – 48 hours before the treatment can take place, this will obviously ensure that no allergic reaction happens. It will be interesting to see if this treatment will be as popular as eyelash extensions have been.
