Reductions in numbers of the Party

By requesting work on lashes the Client confirms that she agrees to proceed on the basis that her lashes are of at least ordinary hardiness and durability and fully tolerant of relevant industry-standard products and materials including adhesive (whether or not the Client suffers from illness which may affect her lashes). Where the Client does suffer from illness which may affect her lashes then all work so done is entirely at the Client’s own risk.
