EYELASH AND BROW EXTRENSIONS
What are eyelash extensions:
Eyelash extensions are a great new way to get your lashes to look thicker, curlier, and longer! It's a cross between your natural lashes and the option of hundreds of different synthetic & mink lashes for you to choose from. Extensions come in all types of lengths thickness, colors, pretty much any style you would like, we can customize!
Who uses eyelash extensions?
Anyone in the market for a more sophisticated look. Eyelash extensions provide a look that adds beauty and youth. They also save you time so you don't need to worry about them every day. Absolutely mascara-free.
What are eyelash extensions made of?
The eyelashes that are being used for most eyelash extensions sets are synthetic; Synthetic Mink lashes are made of a single polyester fiber thread that not only gives them a gloss finish but a soft touch as well. Lavish Lashes Bold Minks are mix of single polyester fibers and natural goodness of natural lashes, giving you the beauty of both words: soft in touch, natural in look but yet mate finish and the curl you desire. Silk lashes are super soft with brilliant high shine, flat in design to create most stunning mascara finish.
How safe are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions use a glue specifically formulated for this type of service. Some are odorless and some have a slight scent. All extensions are applied 1mm away from your skin with your eyes closed during the procedure, therefore ensuring that neither the extension nor glue comes in contact with your eyes.
How long do eyelash extensions last?
Your natural lashes shed on average every 5-8 weeks, the extensions will remain adhered thru the length of your natural lash cycle. The average person sheds 1-4 lashes per day that's why we recommend fill in appointments every 3-4 weeks to replace eyelashes that have fallen out due their natural cycle. Some clients admire the fluff full look at all times, in those cases 2 week fill appointment is recommended.
How do I care for eyelash extensions?
Extensions have an easy maintenance with simple guidelines to follow. Avoid excessive rubbing, oil-based cleansers and lotions, along with oil-based makeup removers. Small make up sponge applicators/ micro-swabs are recommended to carefully clean around the eyes.
Can I wear mascara on eyelash extensions?
We recommend specialty formulated mascara that is water based to be used on the tips of your extensions, for touch ups only. Nothing heavy or waterproof as it will waken the bond between natural lash and the extension.
How do I prepare for the service?
Using a soft cleanser please thoroughly clean your current lashes. Please use nothing oil-based and remove all make-up. Remove contact lenses and bring your glasses.
Can I receive eyelash extensions if my lashes are tinted or dyed?
Yes. We recommend talking to your professional on what steps to take to ensure best final result for those with tined eyelashes.
How do you remove eyelash extensions?
There are two methods:
1. Come in and let us professionally remove them with a special adhesive remover. Please do not attempt to remove them yourself as the glue is very strong and you can damage your own lashes.
2. Let the eyelash extensions slowly fall our by themselves. This will take about 5-8 weeks.
