our story

Instant Pretty Lashes, LLC was founded in June 2014 by freelance artist and Bay Area native, Christina Mendez.  She provided exclusive services; to include make-up application and eyelash extensions in the privacy of her valued clients' homes. 

Christina soon realized there was a gap in the beauty industry that fell between the stylist, the client and traditional salons. She wanted to bridge this gap and continue to provide exceptional service without losing respect for what clients seek in a traditional salon: relaxation, quality and availability.  In 2016, Christina turned a dream into a reality and collaborated with Mercedes Benz to create a mobile salon specially designed and custom built, allowing her to bring the traditional salon to the clients's door, the beauty van offers a modern, classy luxurious feel with full salon amenities that will cater to your beauty needs at any given private space.

Instant Pretty Lashes , LLC  continues to be a freelance business comprised of  elite artists who work together as a handpicked certified team to provide the best service for their clients.

Instant Pretty Lashes, LLC  takes pride in the products they use and takes pride in providing the best service for their valued clients.

PRE-CARE INSTRUCTIONS

To maximize the longevity of your eyelash extensions and the amount of eyelash extension application time, HAVE no eye makeup on. Having makeup free / clean  eyelashes will dramatically increase the life of your eyelash extensions and will also increase the amount of eyelash extensions you will have applied.


If you wear contacts, we recommend that you please wear glasses to your appointment. Contacts must be removed during eyelash extension application. 

Listen to your Lash Artist : Length, weight, style, and design are individual specific—if your lash Artist says NO to a specific length or look, it’s for your own good.

 

POST-CARE INSTRUCTIONS

In order to maximize the life of your eyelash extensions, please follow these after-care instructions:

Wait 48  Hours before allowing water, steam, saunas, hot tubs and sweating  to come in contact with your eyes.  If you wear contacts, please wait before reinserting them and use the least amount of contact solution possible for proper placement. Please blot excess solution with tissue and avoid pooling solution, re-wetting drops, or tears from pooling around eyes.

 

 Never: Use waterproof mascara or eyeliner on eyelash extensions. Most mascara and eyeliners contain ingredients and oils that will break down the bond of the glue. In addition, the removal of waterproof mascara or eyeliner requires an oil-based solution for removal, that will casue the extensions to fall off permaturely.

 

If you must wear mascara or liquid eyeliner, please note the use of mascara and eyeliner will break the bond and the adhesive which will  damage the extensions. This will result in a higher extension loss rate. If choosing to use mascara or eyeliner, it is crucial to use a NON-OIL BASED remover as oils will loosen extensions and shorten the lifespan of your extensions.

 

ONLY USE OIL-FREE : (that means water-based products only) products to remove eye make-up. When removing eye makeup, use a makeup sponge gently to cleanse the area. 

NEVER : use an eyelash curler or cut the extensions, this can permanently damage not only the extensions, but your natural eye lashes as well.

If you would like to remove your eyelash extensions, please schedule an appointment. Attempting to remove extensions yourself is NOT RECOMMENDED, as it may cause breakage or loss of your natural lashes,

The lash cycle is approximately 4-12 weeks. Do Not be alarmed if some of your lashes fall out quickly (they most likely were at the end of their cycle) The majority of extensions will stay through a complete cycle if you follow the guidelines. 

 Keep your lashes clean by using the "lash-poo" provided  in your home care kit.  Clean lashes are important as debris build up like dirt, make-up, etc. This can cause the adhesive to wear out faster.

Gently comb your lashes while they are dry to prevent any crisscrossing lashes.Be sure to schedule your refill appointment every 2-3 weeks, this will keep your lashes looking Full and Beautiful!
