FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What Are Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash extension is an advanced technique that lengthens and thickens natural eyelashes. They are single strands of lashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. We only use professional quality eyelash extensions.
How will they look and feel?
When applied by a skilled technician they will look completely natural, only much longer and fuller. They will feel like your own eyelashes. We do not count lashes, we will add as many or as few as needed to create the right look for you.
How long will my initial appointment take?
We take an artisan approach with our customers and will not rush your appointment. You can expect your first appointment to take approximately 1 to 2 hours. We will use as many eyelash extensions as needed to create the right look for you. If you are happy, then we are happy
How long will my Eyelash Extensions Last?
When properly applied and cared for, your eyelash extensions will last for up to four weeks. This depends on naturally how well you hold them and how well you take care of them. Please see the Lash Extension aftercare section on how to properly care for your eyelash extensions to maximize longevity.
What is a fill and how often should I get one?
After your initial set of eyelash extensions you will receive instructions on how to care for them. Fills are done every one, two, three and four weeks depending on care and how quickly your eyelashes grow. An eyelash extension fill will take less time to do and the prices reflect that.
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 two to two and a half weeks to fill in lashes on the new growth. Some people can go up to three and four week fill.
Will extensions damage my eyelashes?
Yes and no. Yes, your lashes can be damaged if you go to someone who was not properly trained and uses cheap products not intended for long wear. No, extensions properly applied by a certified, trained technician who uses quality products should not. Our eyelash extension application techniques and innovative aftercare ensures your lash health.
Can I be allergic to the products, is this common?
True allergic reactions do happen, but are rare. If you have developed an allergic reaction you may still wear extensions with some changes made to the before-care, aftercare and products used. What is more common is eye infections due to improperly washing and caring for your lashes. Waiting 24 hours to wash lashes and not washing your eyelashes the entire time you wear them are the most common causes of infections. Imagine not washing the head on your hair for weeks or months.
Can I use eyelash growth products with my extensions?
Lash growth products that contain steroids change the composition of your lashes and accelerate your eyelash shedding cycle, therefore we cannot guarantee the outcome. Natural lash growth products containing peptides are wonderful and will have no adverse effect on the longevity of your extensions.
Will I still need to use mascara?
No, you will not need to use mascara with your lash extensions, but for nights that you want extra drama you can use an oil free mascara ONLY on the tips of the lashes.
