What you should do before your eyelash extension appointments? Wear no mascara, and have clean lashes using a mind-oil free cleanser. Do not use oil based makeup remover prior to the eyelash extension application. Do not put on any mascara prior to your appointment. Plan to set aside 1.5-3 hours for your initial appointment.
What are eyelash extensions? Eyelash extensions are individual Synthetic, Mink eyelashes. They are attached one-by-one to each of your individual natural lashes – no to the skin. This service is beauty enhancing and eliminates the need to wear mascara. It is a meticulous service, which requires the skill and precision of your certified lash technician. Once the eyelash extensions are applied, they are natural looking. Size availability ranges from short to long, which will be decided and agree upon with your certified eyelash technician.
How long will my eyelash extensions last if I follow the proper care instructions? In some cases, eyelash extensions can last up to 4 weeks. However, it is common to get a touch up after 2-3 weeks. Like all hair, there are 3 phrases to the eyelash growth cycle. There are lashes in each phase at all times, therefore, some will be lost within a couple of weeks, and others can last much longer as part of the natural cycle.
How much do they cost and how long is the appointment? The initial cost for the application is $125.00 for a full set, this appointment can be anywhere between 90-120 minutes. Your maintenance appointment, know as a fill is $55 and can take up to 60-80 minutes. Please do not attempt to remove your lashes yourself, please seek assistance from your eyelash technician. If you choose to have them removed the appointment is typically 30 minutes at a cost of $20. We will not be held liable for any damage that you may cause by trying to remove your eyelash extensions on your own.
Do lash extensions damage my natural lashes? No. When extensions are applied correctly they will not harm your natural lashes; each lash extension is adhered to one single natural lash, the extension will grow out naturally as your lash matures. The eyelash adhesive is formulated to create a solid bond, specifically for human lashes. The adhesive dries very soft on the lashes, allowing the lashes to stay flexible and bouncy just like your own lashes.
