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. We specifically only do a 1:1 ratio to prevent loss of lash due to heavy weights of multiple extensions on one lash. As your lashes go through its natural growth and shed cycle, refills will be needed.
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 bond?
Allergic reactions is possible and are more likely to be from the bond. 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. If you must apply mascara, only use a water-based formula. Oil based and waterproof mascaras along with the remover may dissolve the bonding agent and cause your extensions to fall off.
Am I able to get them wet in the shower or go swimming?
Yes! The bonding agent as well as the extensions are all water and sweat proof.
What kind of extensions do you use?
We use individual faux-mink 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?
My appointments are normally booked for two hours. However, the time could vary depending on how full or how sparse your lashes are. Aim to be here for about an hour and a half to two hours.
