FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are semi-permanent eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are individual synthetic eyelashes that are applied to individual eyelashes, one at a time, to add lengthen and fullness to the existing lashes.
*Eyelash extensions are for professional application only. Self-application and application by untrained individuals is strongly discouraged.
What do they look like and how do they feel?
With proper application, eyelash extensions look and feel completely real. The thickness and length of the eyelash extensions applied is determined by the health and thickness of your natural lashes as well as personal preference.
We offer a wide variety of thicknesses (.03-.15mm), lengths (4mm to 17mm), colors and curls. Every set is custom designed to fit your desired look and needs.
What are the benefits of wearing eyelash extensions?
Besides added length, volume and/or colors, eyelash extensions create the appearance of a brighter, more open eye.
With eyelash extensions you can ditch the mascara and spend less time on your beauty regimen, all with giving the appearance of having put significant effort into your eye makeup.
Look and feel gorgeous from the moment you wake up until the moment you fall asleep with little to no effort, every day!
How long do eyelash extensions last?
The look can be maintained indefinitely with fills and proper aftercare. When properly applied, an eyelash extension will remain in place until it sheds with the natural lash it is attached to.
Natural eyelashes grow and shed in cycles (every 60 to 90 days). When a natural lash matures and sheds, a new lash has already been growing and quickly replaces it without us noticing. This process is constant and at any given moment our many natural lashes are at different stages of maturity. Some are just growing in, while others are ready to shed. People typically shed between 1 and 5 natural lashes each day, depending on their individual growth cycles.
When eyelashes are extended with eyelash extensions, it will be more noticeable when these lashes shed because they are longer and darker than natural lashes.
With proper aftercare and maintenance, fills are typically needed once every 2 to 3 weeks to replace the lashes that have shed. During fills, extensions are applied to the newest mature natural lashes to maintain a full, lush appearance.
How long does the procedure take?
A full set of eyelash extensions generally takes between 1.5-4 hours, while fills can take 1-3 hours.
I have no lashes at all, can I wear eyelash extensions?
Because eyelash extensions are applied to existing natural lashes you must have some natural lashes to wear extensions. Eyelash extensions should not, and in many cases cannot, be applied to clients who have alopecia, are undergoing chemotherapy or those who suffer from Trichotillomania, unless and until the individual has received effective treatment and normal lash growth has resumed.
Can I apply eyelash extensions to my own eyelashes?
No. Only a trained professional will be able to safely apply eyelash extensions. Unprofessional application or self-application may cause eye injury, lash damage or unnatural looking lashes. The procedure involves bonding the synthetic extension to your own natural eyelashes and should be performed only by a professionally trained lash artist.
What are eyelash extensions made out of?
