All About Lashes
What Are Eyelash Extensions?
They are Semi-Permanent Eyelash Extensions that give a natural look, where synthetic eyelashes are applied one by one to each individual natural lash.
Eyelash Extensions were developed to mimic your natural lashes; its design features a tapered tip with a thicker base to resemble the look and feel of a natural lash. The luxurious natural look of Eyelash Extensions is achieved by a meticulous and artful application of synthetic lashes, all applied one by one to your natural lash by a certified Lash Stylist.
You can expect your initial eyelash extension procedure to be scheduled for up to 3 hours. This time allows you to rest and be pampered as your Lash Stylist transforms your lashes to the customized lash look you have selected. With the diverse inventory of over 100 individual styles of eyelash extensions, you and your stylist can design a tailored look to compliment your natural beauty.
What type of extensions should I choose?
Once you have found someone you are happy with talk to them about your needs and wants. A good technician will discuss different options, curls, lengths and fullness with you to create the perfect fit your your eye shape and lifestyle. Make sure to re-book your re-fill every 2-3 weeks.
Are there any different colors or curls?
Absolutely. Eyelash extensions come in a variety of curls, thickness’s and even colors. Your technician will discuss the best options with you.
What do I have to do before my appointment?
For the best possible result we require squeaky clean lashes. Please make sure your lashes are completely free of any make-up and oily products. Please note that and extra fee will apply if excessive make-up/mascara has to be removed, or it will come off your valuable lash time.
How do I care for my new lashes?
Carefully clean your lashes daily with a cleanser that is specifically designed for extensions.
Do not use oil based products around the eye area. Brush your lashes back into shape gently after washing them. Do not rub, pull or play with your lashes. Do not wear mascara on your eyelash extensions.
How long do they last?
Eyelash Extensions last as long as your natural lash. When your natural lash sheds so will the extension. On average , we lose 3 eyelashes per day without even noticing. To keep them full and fluffy refills are recommended every 2-4 weeks.
Can I wear mascara with them?
NO. They will not last as long if you use mascara. The oils in mascara will break down the bond of the adhesive and add extra weight to the natural lash.
Does the application hurt?
No, the application is totally pain free. Most everyone takes a relaxing ” lash nap” during this time. With the table warmer on, relaxing music playing in the background and a fuzzy blanket to cuddle up with, it is hard not to fall asleep.
How can I make them last longer?
Listen to your lash artist. Follow the after care routine given to you and stay away from oily products. Avoid water in the first 24 hours including sweat and steam. Be gentle with them when washing and sleeping. Spray tanning the face may also shorten the life of your extensions.
