Frequently Asked Questions
What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are individual faux mink lashes. They are attached to your eyelashes individually, not to your skin. This service is a very meticulous and intense one that requires skill, precision, and practice. You do NOT need to use mascara or an eyelash curler while wearing eyelash extensions. There are many different lengths and curls available to ensure that every client gets a customized look.
Will extensions damage my natural lashes?
If your lash artist is not properly educated and trained, extensions could cause damage to your natural lashes. When done properly, extensions don't cause damage or premature fallout to your natural lashes. They will only shed out according to the normal growth cycle of the natural lashes.
How long do they last?
It varies for everyone. One lash extension will stay on the natural lash for the length of that natural lash's lifecycle. A typical full lash cycle is somewhere between 21-90 days. We naturally grow new lashes to replace the ones that cycle out.
Clients should be coming in every 2- 3.5 weeks for Fills or Extended Fills to maintain the fullness of their lash extensions. If you have a Full Set put on, and don't intend to maintain them, you could wear them off completely in about 5-6 weeks.
How should I prepare for my lash extension appointment?
Remove ALL eye makeup beforehand and come with clean lashes so that none of your appointment time is wasted.
Avoid any oil-based products on or near your eyes.
Avoid caffeine beforehand so that you are able to relax and be still.
Set aside the allotted appointment time for your full set or fill and be prepared to lie down with your eyes closed for that long.
Use the restroom.
Turn your phone on silent to ensure a relaxing time for yourself.
Don't chew gum or have anything in your mouth during your appointment.
Leave your kids and pets at home.
How do I take care of my lash extensions?
Do not rub, pick, or pull at extensions. The less your hands are on your extensions, the longer they last.
Do not use oil-based products on your eyes.
Avoid thick, gel eye liners or cream eyeshadows.
Do not use any mascara or an eyelash curler on your extensions.
Clean your lashes daily!
Brush your lashes after you wake up and/or after showers. Don't brush excessively.
What is the difference between Classic and Volume lash extensions?
Classic lashing is the art of applying one, single extension to one, isolated natural lash. Volume lashing is the art of safely applying anywhere from 2-10 super fine, lightweight eyelash extensions to one, isolated natural lash.
The classic lash technique is the more standard of the two. It's great for clients who have many natural lashes and are looking to add length, curl, and darkness to what they already have.
The volume technique more popular in the lash world. It's great for clients who have fewer natural lashes, bald spots on their lash line, or who just want a fuller look. Volume lashes will give you a fuller, fluffier look than the classic lashes and typically last longer.
