Lash Extensions FAQS

WHAT ARE LASH EXTENSIONS:  They are individual extensions made of a synthetic material to look like perfect natural eyelashes; thicker at the base and thinner at the tip with a slight curl.  They are adhered one by one to a natural lash with a medical-grade bonding adhesive giving the appearance of a darker, more voluptuous lash-line.

HOW LONG DO THEY LAST:  An average eyelid has approximately 100 natural hairs which shed at an average rate of 20-30% every 2 weeks. Therefore, when the natural hair sheds, so does the extension that was attached to it. Since new hairs are always growing in, refills can be performed to attach extensions to the new growth keeping the lashes looking full continuously or for as long as you wish to maintain them. Normal fill-ins are every 2-3 weeks.

WHO CAN RECEIVE LASH EXTENSIONS:  Anyone with an eyelash to attach to can receive eyelash extensions. However, if you have any of the following conditions we advise you to schedule a free consultation with a Lash stylist prior to scheduling a full set to best determine if lashes are right for you.

Extremely sensitive eyes or skin

Eye infection of any kind

Allergy to cyanoacrylate (this is used in acrylic nails and most adhesives of any kind)

It can take up to 24 hours for the eyelash extension adhesive to fully cure the bond between your natural lash and the extensions. Avoid swimming, spas, saunas and tanning on the day of your lash appointment. After the 24 hours, they are able to get wet. While sleeping, lashes can tangle or flip to the side. Brush through your lashes each morning with a clean mascara wand to reshape the extension and keep them fluffed into place. The overall upkeep is very minimal and very easy to manage.

BEFORE THE SERVICE:  Remove all eye makeup and clean your natural lashes with an oil-free cleanser.

If you wear contact lens, we recommend removing them.

Avoid caffeine and any other stimulants that may cause your eyes to flutter involuntarily.

Refrain from curling or perming your natural lashes prior to receiving your full set.
