6. Butterfly Lash Solutions’ eyelash extension adhesives can be stored in the car, in high heat, near a window, or left outside between services. They also do not expire for 3 months after purchase. 7. Qualities of a great full set or refill include: spaces between the lashes, uneven shape, and incredibly thick lashes applied to frail and thin lashes. a. True b. False 8. Eyelash Extensions should be applied as follows:
a. Touching the lids of the clientb. Leaving a minimum of 1 to 2mm from the lash line of the client. c. Anywhere near the eye area
9. How long do lash extensions last? When applied properly, lash extensions can last indefinitely as long as you come in for fills every 3 to 4 weeks. This is required as your natural lashes shed; therefore it is necessary to fill in any new growth. When you come in for regular touch ups, you should normally have at least 50% to 75% of your eyelash extensions still attached. 10. Eyelash Extensions should be applied as follows:
a. One synthetic to one natural lash at a time.
b. One synthetic on more than one natural lash at a timec. More than one synthetic lash can be applied to one natural lash
11. A Full Set should always contain at least 80 to 100 lashes per eye. With regular fills, an average client leaves with 80 to 100 lashes per eye. a. True 12. Once I practice and develop the necessary skills to be an excellent lash technician, it should take me less than 2 to 2 ½ hours to apply 80-100 lashes per eye. 13. How long do fills/touch ups usually take and how often does a client need to come in for them? Appointments should be approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour. Clients should come in every 3 to 4 weeks for a fill. a. True 14. What percentage of lashes typically remains on my clients if they come for fills regularly (every 3 weeks)? They should have at least 50% or more lashes remaining when coming in for a fill. 15. Individual Faux-Mink lashes are light, flexible and soft. They come in “trays”, lined up in a row. You can get individual sizes or mixed trays. 16. The most common lash diameter/thickness used is 0.15mm. If I use 0.20mm or 0.25mm diameter lashes on most clients, this will ruin their natural lashes over time since these are too thick and heavy. The majority of clients use .15mm and .10mm diameter/thickness since the diameter/density/thickness is to be matched to their natural lashes. For example if their natural lash is 0.10 mm in thickness, I should apply a 0.10 mm in thickness. a. True 17. Most common lengths are 8-12 mm long. Length choice is never to exceed 50% above the client’s natural lash. 99% of the time, clients prefer 20 to 30% longer than their natural lashes. 18. How do I care for eyelash extensions? Eyelash extensions need minimal care. Avoid excessive rubbing, waterproof mascaras, oil based cleansers, oil based lotions or make-up removers, as these will loosen the adhesive and shorten the life of your extensions. Use a micro-brush to fully clean the eyeliner around the eye. We recommend using Butterfly Lash Solutions’ PAPILLON Essential Kit: 1) PAPILLON Oil- Free Cleanser, 2) PAPILLON Lash Serum and 3) PAPILLON Nourishing Sealer. These products will clean, protect and extend the life of your extensions while also nourishing your natural lashes. a. True 19. An “Essential Kit”, which includes Butterfly Lash Solutions’ PAPILLON Cleanser, Nourishing Sealer and Lash Serum would benefit my clients as well as increase my sales volume. a. True 20. Butterfly Lash Solutions’ PAPILLON Eye Cleanser does the following: It removes any unwanted dirt, oil and other particles from the lashes. It is 100% oil-free. It will ensure that their lashes are always clean. Many clients who get lashes assume that “if they don’t touch them, wet them, or wash them that they will last longer”. FALSE!!.it is quite the opposite. Your client should wash/cleanse their eyes with an oil-free cleanser daily, if not at least 2-3 times a week to prevent Blepharatis and other issues. Eyelash follicles can become blocked if the lashes are not cleaned as the sebum (oil, dead skin cells and bacteria) on the eyelid block up the natural lash follicle. This can all be prevented with good hygiene. Tell your clients to wash their eyes in the shower. They can apply a cleanser with their fingertips. It is primarily a hygiene requirement, not just a way to remove makeup. a. True b. False 21. Butterfly Lash Solutions’ PAPILLON Lash Serum has the following benefits: nourishes your natural lashes enabling them to grow thicker, darker and longer. It transforms frail and brittle lashes. Brush the lash serum onto the root of clean lashes or brows in the same manner as if applying eyeliner, while avoiding the eye area. Full results can take 2-3 months. It is important for lash clients as it will keep their natural lashes strong and healthy so that they can continue coming back for fills indefinitely. 22. Butterfly Lash Solutions PAPILLON Nourishing Sealer does as follows: It is a coating agent that protects extended lashes from moisture and oil. It should be applied daily and extends the lifetime of the eyelash extensions, while nourishing their natural lashes. a. True 23. How would you describe your lash work? I would describe my work as very clean, precise, and beautifully designed. This means that the individual lashes are not stuck together and feel comfortable. I mix up sizes and curls to most mimic natural lashes. My clients’ closest friends cannot usually tell they are fake lashes! My studio and work area should appear neat and sanitary as well as myself --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In-Class Hands-on Training Perfect technique and safety is our focus during class. We want students to be able to demonstrate that they comprehend the key concepts and that they can perform the technique safely.

5. DISCUSSION 5.1 c-DNA We found that the affinity of some of the native or heavy atom modified oligonucleotides for their complementary sequence in the T. thermophilus 16S rRNA is very high (Table 1). This result agrees with previous studies which showed that some regions of the 16S rRNA from E. coli are accessible for the binding of short cDNA oligonucleodites (Oakes et al., 19
