What are Eyelash Extensions?

Hello ladies! Hello, luscious lashes! If you’d like to enhance the natural look of your eyes, you can’t go wrong with eyelash extensions. Essentially, eyelash extensions are strands of synthetic hairs that are adhered to your individual lash. They can add length, thickness, and fullness to your natural lashes and give you a beautiful, youthful look. So ditch that messy mascara and get ready to wake up to a beautiful full set of luscious lashes!

What Happens During Your Eyelash ExtensionAppointment?

You’ll start with a complimentary consultation with our lash artist. She will design a customized lash application for you! Once you’ve had a consultation, your lash artist will have you lie back and relax. She will use special sanitized tools to isolate each individual lash. Once your lash is isolated, she will use a medical-grade glue to adhere to the synthetic lash to your own natural lash. Depending on the lash style you and your artist decide on, it will determine your appointment time. On average this process takes 1-2 hours.

Eyelash extensions last as long as the growth cycle of the natural lashes which is about 6-8 weeks. Lash extensions fall out along with the natural shedding of your lashes. You will lose on average 2-5 natural lashes per day. The extensions are attached which means they will go too. For this reason, fills are required every 2-4 weeks.

How Do I Maintain My Eyelash Extensions?

Maintenance is important after a lash application or fill.  Proper care of your eyelash extensions,  will maintain hygiene and help extend the life of your investment. 

  • Do not get the lashes wet for at least 24 hours after application to allow for the glue to set. 
  • Use oil-free makeup as oil can break down the bond of the glue. 
  • Do not curl your lashes.
  • Avoid steam or excessive heat. (Hot showers, saunas, or blow dryers directed at your face) 
  • Do not rub your eyes or sleep on your face. 
  • Clean your lashes with baby shampoo. 
  • Schedule your lash fill appointment every 2-4 weeks.
