Welcome to semi permanent eyelashes

last updated June 2024

Welcome to Cherries & Diamonds.

We provide bespoke eyelashes for our clientele. Cherry has been lashing for the past 11 years. over that time I have seen a lot of bad lash jobs and damaged lashes. Cheery aims to inform you and treat your lashes with care

Cherries & Diamonds will conduct a consultation which will consider what you are looking for and what your type of lashes can handle. We aim to deliver the best service. Your health and happiness is our concern.

semi permanent eyelash extensions are not your traditional individual (cluster) eyelashes. They are single eyelash fibres attached to your eyelashes, using 1:1 ratio method.

A lash technician will isolate one of your own natural lashes and apply one eyelash fibre to isolated lash and continue till desired look is achieved.

basic lash services


half set

full set


Your lashes go through lash cycle


dependant on where you are in your lash cycle will determine how frequent you visit a lash technician.

the care you give to your lashes will also determine how your lashes last.

week 1

Your lashes should look full without the need for an in-fill session. The occasional eyelash may fall out but, with proper care, this will be unnoticeable.

week 2

As more eyelashes mature and fall out, your eyelashes will start to look less full. This will not be particularly noticeable but, not is a good time to book your in-fill in week 3.

week 3

By the third week, gaps are inevitable as your eyelash hairs reach maturity and fall out. without proper after care, larger gaps may start appearing and mascara may be required to gain desired effect. Ensure your full effect lasts longer by attending an infill appointment.

week 4

Without an infill appointment, most of the original extensions will have fallen out by the end of the week 4. meaning a new full set will be required on your next appointment.
