FAQ

 

What do Eyelash Extensions look like when applied?

 

With one synthetic eyelash applied to one natural lash, the look and feel is completely natural looking and real. Our technician can use longer, thicker lashes for a more dramatic look!

 

How long will a set of Eyelash Extensions last?

 

Eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes. Everyone’s experience will differ based on day to day activities but over all touch-ups should only be required every 2 to 4 weeks. A special waterproof bonding agent is used.

 

How often should I get touch-ups?

 

We recommend getting a touch up every 2 to 4 weeks. If you wait too long your eyelash extensions will fall out and you will require a full set. Your natural eyelashes fall off every 45 – 60 days due to the natural growth cycle and are naturally replaced with the growth of a new eyelash. Other factors such as exposure to steam or touching your eyes a lot may cause the extensions to fall sooner. A touch up is needed to fill in any lashes that have fallen. Touch-ups average about 1 hour.

 

Can I apply mascara to Eyelash Extensions?

 

Yes, even though mascara is not really required since the extensions actually give the illusion of wearing mascara, it can be worn. It must however only 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 make-up remover.

 

How long will it take to Apply Eyelash Extensions and how is it done?

 

The application process for lash extensions normally takes anywhere from 2 hours for a full set. You will lay comfortably on a massage or facial table with your eyes closed. The Eyelash professional will then apply an under eye pad to cover your lower lashes . Then the extensions will be applied to each individual eyelash on a hair by hair basis.
