What Are Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash Extensions are a popular new product that lengthens and thickens your own natural lashes. They are single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural lash. They are applied to each individual eyelash with a specially designed bonding agent for a natural, beautiful and luscious look. Eyelash Extensions are perfect for that special occasion or for day-to-day wear. They are virtually weightless and will not damage your natural lash so you can choose to wear them permanently.

CAN I USE MASCARA? EYELINER?

mascara: Not recommended, removing process can cause the lashes to fall out.

EYELINER: yes, its safe to use water base eyeliner. use cotton swab to remove (using water base makeup remover, ex: witch hazel)

Will the application be harmful to my natural lashes?

Not at all! Our eyelash extensions are applied on your own natural eyelashes one by one (without touching the skin) with an specially designed bonding agent developed exclusively for eyelash extensions. This new technique is not harmful to your natural eyelashes. The adhesive dries very soft on lashes allowing flexibility and comfort.

What do Eyelash Extensions look like when applied?

With proper application, meaning one synthetic eyelash applied to one natural lash the look and feel is completely natural looking and real. No one will know you have extensions. They will just think you were born with beautiful, long and luxurious lashes!

How long will a set of Eyelash Extensions last?

When applied properly, eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes. Everyone's experience will differ based on day to day activities but over all touchups should only be required once every 2 to 3 weeks. Then you can continue wear it...months...years

How often should I get a fill?

We recommend getting a fill every 2 to 3 weeks. As your natural cycle falls out, we will replace it with new lashes. If you wait too long your eyelash extensions will fall out and you will require a full set.  A fill averages about 1-1.5 hr.

 semi-permanent' lashes and permanent lashes. What is the difference between the two?

Just like your hair, eyelashes grow and fall out. In fact, we lose between 10 and 15 lashes every month. The term 'semi-permanent' refers to eyelash extensions that fall out before natural lashes. Semi is design for short-term wearing for special occasion with no/low commitment. The lashes are cluster and the glue are easily remove than permanent glue. On average semi lasts 4 days to 2 weeks. Permanent lasts months-year (with 2-3 weeks retouch). On the other hand, if the eyelash extension stays perfectly in place during the entire lifespan of the natural lash (2-3 months on average), 'permanent' is a more appropriate word. 

Can I apply mascara to Eyelash Extensions?

Not recommended, using water-base mascara once in a while is ok, but taking it off by rubbing your lashes will cause it to fall out. 

Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing Eyelash Extensions?

Yes. The bonding agent we use is waterproof and allows you to shower, swim, exercise etc. Special care is required but overall maintenance is low. We do recommend however that you do not wash your eye area for approximately 6-8 hours after the eyelash application. Using goggles while swimming are highly recommended. 

Can I use eyelash curlers with Eyelash Extensions?

We do not recommend using mechanical eyelash curlers on your eyelash extensions as these curlers will damage the extensions and possibly your own natural lashes. The extensions do have a natural curl so most people find they don't need to curl them further.

How do I take care of my new Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash extensions are available in a number of lengths and thicknesses. We consult with you first to see what type of style you are interested in and we also determine what your lashes can hold in regards to length and size.
