A woman’s eyelashes have fallen out following a botched lash extension job which also left her eyelids severely inflamed.
Emma Dhanjal, the owner of Emmaculate Beauty, in Perth, was visited by the upset woman who was left with damaged lashes after the cosmetic procedure.
Entering Emma’s salon last week, the woman desperately asked for lash extensions to fix the problem before her birthday weekend.
Horrified by what she saw, salon-owner Emma posted a warning to others on Facebook writing:
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do your research. This poor girl has been left with extremely damaged natural lashes
She wanted lashes for her birthday this weekend and I could not lash her because she has been left with no lashes.
Her natural lashes are sooooo damaged from the place she has been having her lashes done, they were falling out when I touched them with the tweezers.
Her lashes may never be the same again.
This should NEVER ever happen to your lashes, please do not be scared of having lash extensions applied, if you do your research and go to the right place your lash extensions can be applied for years and years without having a break.
Emma also added these were the worse lashes she had seen in her seven years of being a beauty professional.
Speaking to The Daily Mail, Emma added:
As soon as I saw her lashes I knew something was wrong. I was a bit speechless, but I removed them straight away and advised she see her GP.
My advice for people looking to get lashes is to look at reviews and make sure the professional knows what they’re doing.
Prices are also important – you get what you pay for if you go too cheap.
I do want to say, however, that people shouldn’t be scared of having their eyelashes done. This shouldn’t happen, and won’t in most places.
Always make sure you do your research!
