I've been fortunate enough to be part of the Nouveau Lash Gang for a few months now. The #lashgang is a group of bloggers who can share experiences, beauty tips and reviews of Nouveau products. As well as being part of an amazing support group, you may also get the opportunity to review one of the Nouveau Lash treatments. I recently visited a local beauty salon which specialise in Nouveau Lashes for the extend treatment. Beyond Beauty is a new boutique-esque salon based in Hertford.

When I arrived at the salon I was greeted by the owner, Carly and my lash technician, Sophie. They gave me a short form to fill out which asked about any health concerns or previous treatments. Sophie then lead me through to the treatment room room where she asked and discussed with me what lash look I was going for. I explained I was going on holiday so wanted something fairly natural but also full. Like all beauty treatments, maintenance is required to keep your lashes look fresh and thick with added volume.
Unlike other lash technicians I have visited, Sophie uses soft pads underneath your eyes which keep your lower lashes out the way as well as acting as a cooling eye treatment. Everything about Beyond Beauty was professional and friendly, I felt completely at ease throughout my treatment as Sophie chatted away with me and even fed me sips of tea (I had to keep my eyes closed during the process).
I naturally have very straight lashes, so you can see a huge difference in length and curl even with only a few lashes applied. The treatment lasts between 90 minutes and 2 hours and includes the technician applying individual lash extensions one at a time, directly on your own eyelashes. Nouveau Lash use a latex free glue and the best quality lashes. They are extremely soft and light on your eyes but very durable. I have had extensions before which weigh your eyes down and have a hard crispy feel, however Nouveau Extend Lashes feel very natural and I often forgot they were there.
The finished look was exactly the style I wanted. I have had my extend lashes on 2 weeks today and they are still looking long and full. I was concerned that being on holiday would cause them to fall out quite quickly but I have lost hardly any. I sleep on the right side of my face which has caused this side to become slightly spaced and angled, however at the end of the treatment you are provided with an eyelash brush which I use to groom them back into position.
Overall, I am more than happy with the Nouveau Lash Extend treatment and with Beyond Beauty, I will definitely be visiting them again to get my infills. If you are interested in getting Nouveau Lashes, you can use the salon finder on their website to find your local technician. They also offer, LVL, Express and their newest treatment SVS which will be launching soon.
A huge thank you to both Nouveau Lashes & Beyond Beauty for working with me in the review. I hope you all enjoyed reading it ♥ ♥..
