We all love spending quality time with our family and friends, especially when there is something to celebrate. Celebrations of significant events like a Hens Party, Baby Showers, Birthday Parties, Engagement Party, a Corporate Event or even just a little get together with the girls, are all great reasons to have Pamper Party.
Mojo Beauty can cater your pamper party in style, with a number of different treatments for your guests to enhance their party experience. Just contact Nik at Mojo Beauty with how many guests you are expecting, which treatments you would like and she will arrange the therapists and the pamper party details.
1. Eyelashes protect your eyes.
Like our eyebrows, the tiny hairs on our lids keep dirt, sweat, water, and other unwanted debris out of the way. Too bad they sometimes fall into your eye themselves Unfortunately, they sometimes fall onto your eye causing a stray hair fall into your eyeball.
2. Eyelashes fall out daily.
Actually, anywhere from one to five lashes will drop out each day. And at three months, an eyelash's growth cycle is much shorter than the hair on your head — which is one reason why they don't grow very long.
3. Lashes grow in three periods.
There's the anagen phase (active growth period), the catagen phase (transitional period), and the telogen phase (resting period). And at any given time, 90% of your lashes are in the active growth stage where they grow about .16 millimeters a day. So, if you cut your lashes they will grow back... it will just take about five months.
4. There's a big difference between your upper and lower lashes.
The hairs on your top lid are much fuller than your lower lashline. In fact, they're almost twice as full with about 200 to 300 lashes. (Your lower lid has about 100.)
5. Lashes vary in length, too.
The middle lashes are generally much longer than the sides.
6. The longest eyelash on record was 2.75 inches long.
Actually, it was 6.99 centimeters to be exact. And believe it or not, a guy holds this record. In comparison, the average lash length is about 10 millimeters.
7. Tiny mites live in your eyelashes.
But don't worry — you need them on your lashes. Called Demodex, they remove dirt and debris, and help clean your lash follicles. (A clogged lash follicle can lead to a painful sty, so be thankful for those tiny bugs!)
8. We've been styling our lashes since 4000 BC.
Early eyelash tools have been found in Ancient Egypt, but the modern mascara as we know it was created in 1913 in France by Rimmel. However, mascara didn't become popular in America until Maybelline debuted their first formula, which was a mixture of coal and Vaseline.

For those of you who love your lashes, you know the difference that lash treatments can make. They help to add tone, depth and make them look longer and fuller. No wonder it’s one of our most popular treatments, especially when they say that eyes are an attractive feature to the opposite sex …
Yet what type of treatment is best? Which one will make your eyes sparkle and stand out from the crowd? Well primarily, you’ve got 2 options: Eyelash Extensions and Lash Lifts. We’re here to help you figure out which one is best for you.
So, What’s the Difference?
Whilst both lash treatments aim to make your lashes longer and lovelier, they work differently. Eyelash Extensions, for example, work by adding extensions to your lashes to make them physically longer and thicker.
A Lash Lift, on the other hand, is where your lashes are naturally curled to make them appear longer and fuller. Because it’s your natural eyelashes which are being used, Lash Lifts can look a lot more natural, whilst Eyelash Extensions have a more dramatic effect. It really depends on what you prefer.
Lash Lifts: The Benefits
It’s already been mentioned that one of biggest benefits of Lash Lifts is that they just look more natural. Lash Lifts are also great for helping to sort out any problems with longer, untamed lashes. If your lashes seem to crisscross or are twisty, a good lash lift can help to make them straighter and more manageable.
Lash Lifts are also free of maintenance (apart from returning for another one every 6-8 weeks), and because you’re using your natural lashes, they are free of irritation.
Lash Lifts: The Drawbacks
The only real obstacle with a Lash Lift is that some people’s eyelashes can’t be lifted due to being too short. You’re really limited by what your natural eyelashes are capable of. If they are too short, then no amount of curling is going to help achieve an effect you want. That said, Medik8 Lash serum may be used to help nourish and stimulate the lashes to improve their growth.
Eyelash Extensions: The Benefits
Eyelash Extensions have gotten a bit of a bad reputation since Lash Lifts have become popular. They can be branded as fake and unnatural. Sure, a poorly done Eyelash Extension treatment does the opposite of enhancing your eyes, but one done well (by Nik at Mojo Beauty for example) will look amazing,

Eyelash Extensions are great for those looking to give their eyes a dramatic look. They can also make mornings a lot easier by giving you a mascara look without even having to get out of bed! Fantastic for weddings, formals and any special events.
Eyelash Extensions: The Drawbacks
If you are considering Eyelash Extensions, you need to do your homework and find a proper professional lash artist to do the best application for you. If they haven’t been professionally applied they may appear clumpy, stuck together, excessive amounts of glue and may cause your natural lashes to be pulled out.
Which one is right for me?
This really depends on what type of look you’re going for and what type of lashes you already have. If yours are particularly short, the eyelash extension is a great option. It’s also perfect for those looking to achieve that dramatic lash effect.
If, on the other hand, you want something more natural and longer lasting, then the Lash Lift is probably going to suit you much better. Making your lashes look fuller and longer.
