What are Eyelash Extensions?
A process in which a single natural eyelash is isolated and a faux lash or hand-made volume fan is applied to the top of your own natural eyelash approximately 1 mm from the eyelid so neither the glue or the lash has contact with the skin.
*Lash extensions can only be applied to your natural lashes, not your skin.*
How long does it take to apply a full set of lashes?
The application process usually takes about 1-2 hours.
How long do lash extensions last?
The lash extensions will stay on anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks. The bond life depends on many things such as: Proper after care, proper preparation, and proper application. Due to the lashes growth cycle, refills must be applied to fill in the gaps from the natural lashes that have fallen out.
What is a fill?
A refill consists of the lash artist going through the lashes to remove grown out lash extensions and add new extensions.
How long does a fill take?
Refills usually take an hour and do not require as much effort as full application.
Will lash extensions damage my natural lash?
No. With skilled application, normal maintenance and care, the lash extensions will not damage your natural lash.
How can lash extensions be removed?
Please do not try to remove lash extensions yourself... You will end up pulling out your natural lashes if you pick or pull on the extensions. We apply a special gel on to the extensions, that is made to weaken the bond of the glue. No damage is done to your natural lashes.
Are they permanent?
Lash extensions are semi-permanent. Your natural lashes grow and shed at their own pace which is why you need to get them filled every 2-4 weeks.
Does your glue contain formaldehyde?
Our glue does not contain formaldehyde.
