Eyelash Extension FAQ

 1. What do I need to bring with me?

You CAN NOT HAVE any eye make-up, mascara, eye shadow, eyeliner or false eyelashes. Please bring your contact lens case If you use contact lenses.

2. If I have a medical condition with my eyes, Can I get eye lash extensions?

It is advisable to reschedule to get eyelash extensions if you have conjunctivitis, sty, itchiness, redness, swelling or a rash in or around your eyes. We also propose customers who have cold or seasonal allergies to reschedule the eyelash extension procedure.

 3. What do you use to adhere eyelash extension?

We adhere eyelash extensions with US medical grade glue which is safe and long-lasting.

4. How long will the procedure take?

The eyelash extension procedure could takes between 1 hour to 1 hour and half. It may take longer if you want to add more volume. Before we start the procedure, we evaluate your eyelashes and review with you the desired outcome. Occasionally we will have to remove your eye make-up before starting procedure.

5. How long do eyelash extensions last?

Eyelash extensions will last the term of the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes.

6. What are the types of lash extensions?

There are three types of lash extensions: synthetic, silk and mink. Size availability ranges from 6 mm to 17 mm. Once selected, the lashes are applied one at a time using specially formulated, semi-permanent glue that will not irritate the eye nor damage the natural lash.

7. How long does lash extensions last?

Lash extensions last through a full growth cycle of natural eyelashes, typically six to eight weeks. That said, because each person’s lash growth is somewhat variable (just hair growth), I suggest light lash maintenance every two to three weeks to maintain a full look

8. Can glue get into my eyes?

Since your eyes are shut the whole time lash extensions are being applied, no glue will ever get into your eye. Additionally, it's important to understand the difference between an allergic reaction and an infection. A licensed and experienced lash technician will not let an infection occur, but if you’re allergic to the glue, you’re still going to be allergic -- this doesn’t mean the glue is inherently harmful.

9. What are the pros and cons of wearing mink lashes?

People want all different kinds of looks -- some people go for drama, and some opt for something more natural. The benefits of mink lash extensions are that they are more feathery looking and lighter in general, so they put less pressure on your lashes.

10. Do lash extensions fall out over a certain period of time?

Since each lash extension is attached to a single eyelash, they will fall out naturally along with the natural growth cycle of each lash. We recommend a touch-up every two weeks. When an inexperienced professional applies lashes, he or she often applies one synthetic lash to three to four natural lashes, causing clumps or the lash to break and fall out. In addition, your lashes might fall out if you pick at them or try to pull them out yourself, which is a big no-no. But if you avoid those two problems, your lashes should stay intact.

11. Is it okay to also wear mascara?

If you are planning to wear mascara in addition to the extensions, only use it on the tips of the extensions and with a very light hand. This will be enough to give your eyes that "pop" along with the extensions. Using mascara at the base of the extensions will get very clumpy.

12. Will your natural lashes get harmed or damaged?

The biggest myth is that lash extensions ruin your own lashes. They do not. If applied correctly and properly, they are safe and do not ruin the health of your natural lashes. Be sure not to rub your eyes or tug or pull on the extensions because this can cause lash loss and even damage to your natural lashes. If lashes are applied properly and to each individual lash, they won’t fall out.
