Do you want your eyes to appear brighter, rejuvenated and glamorous? Their Lashforever™ Lash Lift will make that happen for you! And unlike other lash treatments, Lash Lift is suitable for both short and long lashes, in any eye shape, ensuring that every one of us gets the same opportunity of beautiful lashes.


Lash lifting is a great alternative for people with sensitive eyes or for people whose lashes grow straight out or downwards. Expect to see a natural-looking “lift” of the eyelashes for a more open, youthful-looking eyes. This treatment is quick and easy, with perfect results every time and it lasts up to 12 weeks, (time may vary slightly depending on your natural lash cycle.)


WHAT IS A LASH LIFT?

The Lashforever™ Lash Lift products are FDA and Health Canada Approved and safe for your eyes and natural lashes. Lashforever™ is an advanced perming system that is semi-permanent and curls the natural lashes without any adhesives, extensions or rods. Lash Lift replaces the traditional perming system of wrapping lashes around a sponge rod, which can cause lashes to over-curl and look short and stubby. Lash Lift uses different sizes of silicone pads and each lash is lifted individually, which creates a perfect curl for your lash length each time.


With lifted lashes, your eyes immediately open up and lashes appear fuller and longer. You can add on tint which adds color or deeper color, especially loved by those that have fairer skin and hair. Tint must be applied before your Lash Lift.

QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE AND DO'S & DON'TS.

Does the Lash Lift procedure hurt? Not at all, in fact you will most likely be fighting the urge to take a quick nap. 

Is the procedure safe? Yes. Lashes are lifted onto our specially shaped lifting pads before products are applied. With anything around the eyes we want to ensure that no product actually enters the eyes. If you feel stinging of any sort let your technician know immediately.

Will the Lash Lift damage my natural lashes? No. However it is important to select a trained professional and follow all appropriate after care.

 How long does a lash lift take? A lash lift can take anything from 45 minutes to an hour from beginning to end. Maybe a little longer if you decide to have your eyelashes tinted which will enhance the effect of your lash lift.

Can I wear makeup after my lash lift? Yes but it is advised that you leave your lashes untouched for at least 48 hours after your treatment.

If you want to wear mascara it is advised not to use a waterproof mascara, as the removal of waterproof mascaras can be harsh on the lashes and weaken the lift.

 Can I use an eyelash curler? No. There will be no need for an eyelash curler as this treatment gives a much better result than using a curler, But more importantly, using one may weaken and damage your lashes.

You will be required to fill out a Health Questionnaire before having this service.

  • Brittle and/or broken short lashes

A STAGE-BY-STAGE GUIDE TO UNDERSTANDING REPORT CARDS


EARLY YEARS—KINDERGARTEN THROUGH GRADE TWO


From the ages of five onwards, children are learning to adjust to an academic setting. Report cards tend to report on student’s behavioral and social progress, such as how they are getting along with their peers, and whether they can stay focused on a task.

Academically, young children are being introduced to the basic skills that they will use to build all future learning upon. Reading progression is critical during the early years. Students should be continually meeting, if not exceeding, the reading progression standards.

While young students may have their entire academic future ahead of them, poor report cards could mean potential problems in the long run. If issues are cropping up time and again, parents should consider getting extra help for their child so that the issue doesn’t become a major learning roadblock.

Children are changing greatly during the early years, and what was a problem today, may not be a problem tomorrow. Even if a particular area might be of concern, parents should watch for incremental improvement from one report card to the next. Always discuss report cards with the teacher, who can give a better picture of a child’s progress.

Each report card marks a milestone of achievement. Just because a child is under performing on one report card, does not mean that there won’t be significant improvement by the next report card.


MIDDLE YEARS—GRADES THREE TO EIGHT


The middle years of school are all about progress markers. While the early years focus on behavior and development, the middle years are very important academically. Children are introduced to increasingly difficult academic skills and their ability to learn these foundational skills is very much the focus of report cards.

Low grades on report card, while problematic, are not as much of a cause for concern as grades that are dropping. Consistency is key on report cards during the middle years; children should not be going down in grade points.

At this stage, the emotional impact of report cards becomes an issue. Worry about grades can cause stress among children and parents alike. Parents can offer incentives to students to help increase their study time, or learn to ask for help in order to maintain grades.

When poor grades are present on multiple report cards, parents should consider it a red flag and seek help before the problem becomes a major issue.


TEEN YEARS—HIGH SCHOOL


In high school, report cards are the biggest indicator of academic performance and progression. The first report of the school year is a warning flag—if there are issues, students should get help as soon as possible. There is plenty of time for students to improve grades before the second and final report cards.

In high school, students’ grades should reflect their short and long-term goals in life. Students need to consider the long-term outcomes of what their grades will mean to them based on what their future goals are.

The pressure is on; students are moving quickly on the fast track towards higher education, and every grade counts. Students should seek extra help as soon as they realize that they need extra support, whether in a particular subject, or in study or homework skills. The sooner that students get the support that they need, the less stressful that report cards become.

Ryan somehow pulls out deals that banks can’t do.  He is very good at making things work and keeping the client stress free. He is just a good guy very approachable calm and knowledgeable. Very client focused” Christen Johnson – Regina 

 “We talked to 3 separate brokers and went with Skott because he provided better communication and bent over backwards for us.  He was very flexible and when we told people the rate the rate he got us they couldn’t believe it.” Matt Barton – Regina


They both have very active young family's. Ryan along with his wife Natasha, have three young boys and Skott and his wife Shawna have young twin boys.   This really explains why they love helping family's get a mortgage for their first home.

Who is most at risk? 

Obviously participants in contact sports (martial arts, football, rugby, hockey, etc.), but other sports like soccer, baseball often see accidental contact lead to problems as well. Other traumas like car accidents and falls are also frequent causes of concussion.
