CAN A PREGNANT CLIENT GET LASH EXTENSIONS?

Our answer is a resounding YES. But to make your client feel at ease, we want to make sure that we're doing everything we can to keep those glue fumes to a minimum.

Can a pregnant client get lash extensions

Eyelash extensions are perfectly safe for pregnant women, and there are many benefits to the expectant mom—an excellent option for pregnant women who have dark circles under their eyes. Most women experience these dark circles during pregnancy due to increased blood flow to the face, leading to puffiness and inflammation.

Eyelash extensions are also very comfortable for pregnant women because they help protect their eyes from the sun, wind, and dust. Eyelash extensions provide a soft shield that prevents these irritants from getting into their eyes and causing them pain or discomfort.

Pregnancy is also a time when your body goes through many changes, which can cause your skin to become dry and itchy. Eyelash extensions can relieve these symptoms by providing moisture to the lashes and making them softer and smoother.

 

When you have a pregnant client come to sit in your bed, my number one tip is to use sensitive glue, but you can use your regular glue if your client isn't particularly sensitive to lash glue.

ASK BEFORE THE APPOINTMENT

The first thing is that it's always best to ask before the appointment if your client is pregnant (or even trying).

It may sound awkward but inform your client that it's just your standard operating procedure. Most pregnant clients don't have any issues with lashes. Still, for those who develop an allergy or irritation, it can be extremely uncomfortable (and even unsafe) for both mother and child.

You might not know precisely what the problem is, but you want to make sure you're protecting everyone involved.

The solution is simple: Talk to your client before she comes in for her appointment. Tell her about your policy and ask if there are any questions she has before booking the appointment.

Be sure that you sterilize all of your tools properly before starting work on your client. Don't forget to sanitize all of your hands as well!

Lash Appointment

 

I ask because some people are allergic to adhesives used to apply lashes. While there are many types of eyelash extensions, they all use an adhesive that bonds the lashes. 

There are also cases where clients may develop an allergy to the glue itself and break out into hives or have difficulty breathing if it touches their skin. This can be very dangerous during the gestation period when their immune system is compromised due to hormonal changes from pregnancy.

PATCH TEST

Once you have already confirmed that your client was pregnant, I strongly recommend a patch test for her. If the client got a reaction, trust your instinct here – by all means, don't go ahead with the treatment. Your priority is still the welfare of your client and the unborn child.

Explain the risks of Formaldehyde from the adhesives, and make sure the client is aware and signs a waiver.

AS A LASH ARTIST, HERE ARE A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT WAYS YOU CAN DO IT:

1. Apply a small amount of eyelash extension glue to the most distal lashes' outer corner of the eyes.

2. Apply a small amount of eyelash glue behind one of the client's ears. Skin is susceptible there, so it would be pretty obvious if a client were to react.

3. Apply 3-4 lashes on the outer corner of the client's eyes to evaluate if the patient is to experience a reaction. Wait for 24HRS.

4. Wait for 24HRS and if there is no reaction, proceed with the application.

5. If the client refuses the patch test, have them sign a liability waiver, meaning they accept the responsibility if they react to the eyelash glue.

KEEP YOUR PREGNANT CLIENTS COMFORTABLE

Make sure your clients are happy with your bed setup, especially if you're lashing pregnant women. The lash bed is designed to be as comfortable as possible to use a bed topper or a lash pillow depending on the client or service.

You can use two extra regular pillows if you're lashing a pregnant client. They can put it on the opposite side. They have the option of raising their legs or simply moving them around.

When using extra pillows, the main thing to remember is to remove the covers and wash them after each service, so make sure your pillows have removable covers.

While we're on comfort, another nice thing for pregnant clients is to make sure they're always comfortable. As we all know, holding a baby can cause us to need to use the restroom frequently, so it's nice to let the client know at the start of the service that if they need to use the washroom, don't worry, just let you know or if they want to take breaks throughout the service.

It's an excellent idea for her to get up, stretch her legs, and reposition her now and again.

An adjustable bed is perfect for pregnant clients because you can raise it and meet their comfort needs. You also want to have a saddle chair or chair that raises and down to efficiently meet the bed level and see what you're doing.

 

TIP: Offer repositioning breaks. The client should be on their side, especially after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

ALLOW ENOUGH TIME FOR A CLIENT'S BREAKS

The most important thing to remember when lashing a pregnant woman is that she is not just any client; she is carrying another life inside of her, so it is essential to be mindful of what you say and do during treatment time with her.

Pregnant women, especially those further into their pregnancy, will need to use the restroom more often. Ensure that they have time to go before, during, and after their lash appointment.

Pregnant woman's hair growth

A pregnant woman's hair growth and hair loss expectations differ from those of a non-pregnant woman. As a lash artist, you should be aware of these changes and manage your client's expectations before, during, and after pregnancy.

Pregnancy is a beautiful time for women, but it comes with many physical changes. One common change that affects many women is hair loss. This can occur during pregnancy, but it happens between the second and third trimesters. Hair loss during pregnancy can be caused by hormonal changes or stress on your body caused by pregnancy itself.

Hair growth and hair loss during pregnancy are different for every woman. Hormones may have an impact on lash retention. If you inform your pregnant client about potential retention concerns, they won't be startled if the outcomes aren't what they expected.

During pregnancy, some of your clients may notice hair growth. This means their extensions may get excessively long much more quickly than they're used to, necessitating more repeated lash fills.

CONCLUSION

You already accepted a pregnant client. You have to allow some extra time. If the usual treatment lasts for 2 hours, give an additional 30 minutes, there will be a time that needs to move a little, drink, or take a bathroom break to ease the pain of lying in one position for the entire session.

Pregnant women are often concerned about the effects of eyelash extensions on their unborn baby. As long as you take the proper precautions, there is no reason to worry. It can be a bit tricky on our part as lash artists. Just follow the simple steps to make their appointment a smooth one.

We are helping them have more confidence before their big day! Congratulations to all the future mommies who will become all clients soon.
