This is a list of your most frequently asked questions and helpful answers.
WHAT ARE EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
Eyelash extensions is a method used by applying individual synthetic or natural fibers to each individual natural eyelash. The end results is a customized set to enhance your lashes and eyes.
HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?
Retention varies on everyone! Your extensions can last between 2-4 weeks, sometimes even up to 5 weeks dependent on your after care at home. There are many factors such as daily activity & habits that can also effect the lash retention. We guarantee to educate you at your lash appointment or whenever a question comes about.
IS IT TRUE THAT LASH EXTENSIONS WILL DAMAGE MY NATURAL LASHES AND CAUSE THEM TO FALL OUT?
If lash extensions are properly placed on and isolated it allows for your natural lashes to go through its natural stages and process. Our natural lashes go through 4 cycles. We call it the circle of life :)
Anagen - baby lash hair grows thick
Catagen - hair roots start degenerating
Telogen- growth stops completely and is in a constistant stage
Early Anagen- old hair grows out & new baby hair grows in!
DO I NEED TO PREPARE BEFORE MY APPOINTMENT?
Please avoid using strip false lashes at least 2 weeks prior to your appointment. That is because the glue sometimes gets stuck on the base of your lashes making it hard for the lash artist to work with. It also can cause you to pull out your natural lashes prematurely damaging the base.
Arrive with no make up on your eyes below and above so the eye pads and eyelash glue can stick on easier and will allow for more lashing and retention
CAN I WEAR MAKE UP WITH EXTENSIONS?
Absolutely! We recommend not using foundation, concealer, primer, shadow, eyeliner etc. that is oil based or has any oils in it. We offer various eyeliners & mascara that are specially formulated for eyelash extensions to stay on longer if that is a look you desire!
CAN I SWIM OR EXERCISE WITH LASH EXTENSIONS?
Of course! Our bonding agent is water-proof after 24 hours of sealing. The things you will want to avoid are sweat, tears and salt water. Salt deteriorates a lot of things especially our glue.
Exercising we suggest wearing a headband or wiping the sweat off before reaching your eyes. Afterwards, when your are finished go to the bathroom and wash off your hands and the sweat on your face so it does not dry up on the drive home! That can cause a lot of lash loss.
We highly hope that you will not be shedding any tears, but if it a must please make sure to wash it off immediately so it does not crust up on your lashes and they start falling off making your more sad :(
Salt water pools and oceans can burn and sting your eyes even more with extensions because it gets trapped on them. If you are risky and love salt water just make sure you've got a fresh bottle of water or travel size wash to rinse it off right when you step out!
WHAT TYPE OF EXTENSIONS SHOULD I GO FOR?
Before every full set our artists will do a consultation with you asking about your everyday wants and desired looks. We also take a look at your natural lashes to see what it can hold without damages. From there with our expertise we make suggestions to help guide you to your dream look!
