🌸What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are an exciting new way to extend the length and thickness of your natural eyelashes. Lash extensions are single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. They are applied to each individual natural eyelash one by one for a natural, beautiful and luscious look.
🌸How long will it take to apply eyelash extensions and how is it done?
Lashes are applied while you are lying down with your eyes closed in a cozy, warm spa bed. This beauty rest can take about 1 HR 15 MIn - 1 HR 45 min for a full set depending on the set of lashes you desire. After cleaning and priming your lashes, your bottom lashes are protected with an anti-aging eye pad and medical grade tape. Lash extensions are applied 1-to-1 with medical-adhesive. It is a very relaxing, non-invasive procedure and most clients fall asleep!
🌸How long do eyelash extensions last?
Eyelash extensions look their best with regular fills! 1-2 weeks without a fill is ok.TO MAINTAIN A BEAUTIFUL LASH STYLE, PLEASE COME IN REGULARLY FOR FILLS! If the fills are done on a timely basis and lashes are properly cared for your eyelashes can last indefinitely. This means a "fill" every one- 2 weeks is recommended to keep your lashes full. The extensions will shed with the natural growth cycle of your own lashes. If you choose to get touch-ups in between they will last as long as you continue to fill them in.
🌸How often should I get touch-ups?
We recommend getting a touch up every 1-2 weeks. If you wait too long your eyelash extensions will fall out and you will require a full set. Other factors such as exposure to steam, humidity or touching your eyes a lot may cause the extensions to fall sooner. Touch-ups can take anywhere from 60-90 minutes, depending on how long you wait between appointments. During your touch-up appointment, we will remove make-up residue, remove grown-out extensions, prime your lashes and apply extensions to new lash growth.
🌸I'm a bride-to-be or going on vacation, when is the best time to book an appointment?
If you've never had eyelash extensions applied before then we recommend booking a full-set 3 weeks before your wedding date or departure date at the latest. And then to book a fill 10 days later than another 1-2 days before. This will allow time to experiment with different lashes, learn proper aftercare and ensure there are no allergies to the product. Booking a month in advance plus 2 fills before the date would be an ideal situation.
🌸Can I apply mascara to eyelash extensions?
Yes, however it must be water based mascara. DO NOT USE OIL-BASED OR WATER-PROOF MASCARA. Waterproof mascara or any type of oil based mascara can dissolve the bonding agent and shorten the life of your eyelash extensions causing them to fall sooner. Care also needs to be taken in washing off the mascara. Only use a water based eye makeup remover
🌸I have sensitivities to makeup and/or other beauty products/services, can I still have an eyelash service done
All of our products are Formaldehyde & latex free. However, if you have any eye sensitivities we do recommend you to book an appointment for a 'Patch Test' first. During this appointment we will have a consultation with you and apply a small amount of product to your eyelashes or sensitive skin to test whether you are a good candidate for the service.
🌸Can I use eyelash curlers with eyelash extensions?
We do not recommend using mechanical eyelash curlers on your eyelash extensions as these curlers will damage the extensions and possibly your own natural lashes. The extensions do have a natural curl but if more of a curl is required we recommend using a heated eyelash curler.
🌸What's the difference between eyelash extensions and the false lashes you can buy at the drugstore or beauty supply?
With eyelash extensions, your eyes will look gorgeous 24/7! Lash extensions are an effortless way to make your eyes pop everyday, even without mascara! Mascara can only add a limited amount of volume and length to your natural lashes. For those of you with thin, short, or very straight lashes, extensions create the look of much more volume, length, and curl. If you like to wear false lashes, or band lashes, you can get a similar dramatic look with eyelash extensions without the hassle of having to apply the strip lashes every day.
About 1-5 of your natural lashes fall out every day as part of their growth cycle, taking the extension with them. After a few weeks, you'll come back in for a fill in to refresh your lash look and add more fullness.
🌺Is there anything I should do to prepare for my appointment?
Yes! Please arrive without any eye makeup. This will minimize the cleanup time and allow more time for applying the extensions. You will need to keep your lashes dry for 24 hours after the application so it's also a good idea to have your hair washed the day of or night before.
