LVL FAQs

What are LVL lashes

LVL create the appearance of longer, thicker lashes. Plus the added lash tint creates a mascara-style effect, so your lashes are perfect from the moment you wake up. No extensions, no adhesive and no need for mascara! Ideal for those seeking a more natural look, the treatment can take as little as 45 minutes but the effects are instant.

How long does LVL last for?

LVL Enhance for up to 6-8 weeks. Little maintenance is required once you leave the salon. What’s more, by combining the treatment with regular use of our unique Nouveau Lashes Conditioning Serum to nourish your lashes, you could be about to say goodbye to mascara for good!, and LVL does not damage the natural lashes!

Waxpert FAQs

What do I do before my wax?

A few days before your appointment exfoliate the area. This helps get rid of expired cells and prepare the hair for your wax. On the day of your wax do not moisturise, or apply deodorants.

What is hot wax?

Hot wax also know as hard wax, is a wax that does not require paper strips to remove it, it is peeled off. As the wax sets it shrink wraps around the hair and lifts it up from the follicle. When it sets it then simply peeled off. We use Waxperts wax and It is the most suitable wax for facial, underarm and bikini waxing. It is great for sensitive skin.
