How long do lash extensions last?
Lash extensions typically last 2-4 weeks or through a full growth cycle of natural eyelashes. It is also dependent on how well you care for your lashes and the types of products you use on them. We suggest a refill appointment every two to three weeks to maintain a full look.
Will the extensions make my natural lashes to fall out?
When applied properly, extensions will not cause any damage to your natural lashes. With proper application, your natural lashes should maintain their health just as long as you are not picking or pulling at the extensions. As your lashes go through its natural growth and shed cycle, refills will be needed.
What is the difference between classic and volume lash extensions?
Classic eyelash extensions are when one eyelash extension is glued to one natural lash. This method is ideal for clients with a lot of natural lashes and want to add length. Volume lashes is when multiple lash extensions are applied to one natural lash. This is not to be mistaken with stacking regular classic lashes or cluster lashes. A lash extension fan is created with very light extensions. A volume set will typically take longer since the fans are being handmade during your appointment. If the fan is made of two lashes, it is called 2D, three lashes is 3D, etc. Volume is ideal for clients with short or sparse natural lashes.
Is the application process painful?
Getting lash extensions should be painless. Most clients actually fall asleep during the application.
Is there a possibility I could be allergic to the lashes or adhesive?
Allergic reactions is possible and are more likely to be from the adhesive. If you have concerns about allergies to the lashes or bond, we can do a patch test and apply a few lashes to each eye. This must be done at least three days before your actual full set since reactions typically happen within the first 24 hours but can also be as long as 72 hours later.
Can I still wear mascara?
Mascara isn’t necessary with lash extensions as they are meant to give the illusion of naturally long and full lashes. Mascara may also shorten the lifespan of your extensions. Oil based and waterproof mascaras along with the remover may dissolve the bonding agent and cause your extensions to fall off.
What kind of extensions do you use?
We use faux-mink and silk lash extensions and carry a range of lengths, diameters and curls. We prefer to use faux-mink over real mink because the curl is permanent, even when wet or in humid areas and require less maintenance.
How long does it take to apply my full set?
Classic lashes: 1.5-2 Hours
Hybrid lashes: 2-2.5 Hours
Volume Lashes: 2.5-3.5 Hours
Please note times could vary depending on how full or how sparse your lashes are.
