What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent, synthetic fibers used to create volume and extend the length of natural eyelashes.
One single extension or volume fan is adhered onto one natural eyelash using professional grade adhesive. With proper application, lash extensions look and feel completely natural.
What is the difference between Volume and Classic eyelash extensions?
Classic eyelash extensions is the process in which one extension is adhered to one natural lash, creating a less dramatic, more realistic look.
Volume eyelash extensions is a different process in which a fan is made using anywhere from 2-10 extensions, joined together at the base, and then placed onto natural lash. This creates a very full, fluffy, and dramatic look.
How long do they last?
Our lashes shed daily, so when a natural lash matures and falls out, a new lash has already been growing and quickly replaces. Eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your own eyelashes, and shed naturally with them. Refills should be scheduled every 2 to 4 weeks to replace the lashes that have shed or outgrown. Proper home care can help with retention as well.
Why do I lose some of my eyelashes?
Due to the natural growth cycle of your lashes you will find your natural eyelashes shed every 60-90 days as new ones grows in. We recommend getting a fill every three to four weeks to fill in lashes on the new growth.
How often should I get fills?
As mentioned above fills should be scheduled every 2-3 weeks. Keep in mind that 40-50% of natural lashes should be remaining. Anything less than that will require a new set.
Do they damage natural lashes?
Since eyelash extensions are applied to your existing natural lashes away from the base, the growth cycle of the natural lash is not affected, which allows lashes to shed how they normally would.
When applied by a professional, adhesive never comes in contact with your skin or eyes, as the extensions are adhered 1mm away from your skin using the minimum amount of adhesive required.
How long does it take?
The application process for classic eyelash extensions typically takes about 1.5-2 hours for a full set of lashes, and 1 hour for a refill. Volume eyelash extensions take 2-2.5 hours for a full set, and refills take about 1.5 hours. Your lower lashes will be covered with a collagen gel eyepad, and the extensions will be applied only to your upper lashes one at a time. You will lay comfortably on a massage or facial table with your eyes closed. There is no discomfort or pain involved in the procedure when applied by a professional.
Do I need to prepare for my service?
Yes! Remove any eye makeup using an oil-free makeup remover. Cleanse your lashes prior to the appointment as well to remove any leftover makeup, dirts, oils, and debris. 24 hours prior to appointment.
Lashes should not be permed or manually curled.
How do I choose the look I want?
Eyelash extensions are available in a number of lengths and thickness, as well as the option to choose between classics or volumes. It is best to have a consultation to see what type of style you are interested in, and what your lashes can hold in regards to size. Eye shape is also taken into consideration when choosing a look that works best for you.
Can I apply mascara to my extensions?
Extensions are designed to give the illusion of wearing mascara. A water proof mascara may be applied, however this is not recommended. Extra precaution should be taken when removing mascara, using only cleanser recommended by your lash artist.
Can I apply eyelash extensions to my own eyelashes?
No! Application should be left to trained professional that will be able to safely apply the extensions. Unprofessional application and self-application raises the risk of eye injury, lash damage or unnatural looking lashes.
Why should I wash my eyelash extensions?
