FAQ



FREQUENTLY  ASKED ?


What Are Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash Extensions are a popular new product that lengthens and thickens your own natural lashes. They are single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural lash. They are applied to each individual eyelash with a specially designed bonding agent for a natural, beautiful and luscious look. Eyelash Extensions are perfect for that special occasion or for day-to-day wear. They are virtually weightless and will not damage your natural lash so you can choose to wear them permanently.


Will the application be harmful to my natural lashes?

Not at all! Our eyelash extensions are applied on your own natural eyelashes one by one (without touching the skin) with an specially designed bonding agent developed exclusively for eyelash extensions. This new technique is not harmful to your natural eyelashes. The adhesive dries very soft on lashes allowing flexibility and comfort.


What do Eyelash Extensions look like when applied?

With proper application, meaning one synthetic eyelash applied to one natural lash the look and feel is completely natural looking and real. No one will know you have extensions. They will just think you were born with beautiful, long and luxurious lashes!


How long will a set of Eyelash Extensions last?

When applied properly, eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes. Everyone's experience will differ based on day to day activities but over all touchups should only be required every 2 to 3 weeks.


How often should I get a fill?

We recommend getting a fill every 2 to 3 weeks. If you wait too long your eyelash extensions will fall out and you will require a full set. A fill averages about 30 to 60 minutes. 


Can I apply mascara to Eyelash Extensions?

Yes, even though mascara is not really required since the extensions actually give the illusion of wearing mascara it can be worn. It must however only be a water-based mascara. Care also needs to be taken in washing off the mascara and should be oil free.


Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing Eyelash Extensions?

Yes. The bonding agent we use is waterproof and allows you to shower, swim, exercise etc. Special care is required but overall maintenance is low. We do recommend however that you do not wash your eye area for approximately 24 hours after the eyelash application.


Can I use eyelash curlers with Eyelash Extensions?

We do not recommend using mechanical eyelash curlers on your eyelash extensions as these curlers will damage the extensions and possibly your own natural lashes. The extensions do have a natural curl so most people find they don't need to curl them further.


How do I choose the look I want?

Eyelash extensions are available in a number of lengths and thicknesses. We consult with you first to see what type of style you are interested in and we also determine what your lashes can hold in regards to length and size. Each person's lashes will vary so we take this into consideration when creating a look for you. The overall goal is for the lashes to look glamorous but natural.


Can the eyelash extension be removed?

Yes, at any time for any reason! It is a simple procedure that doesn't take long and we have a specially formulated removal solution that will break down the glue and safely remove your extensions without damaging your natural lash. Please do not attempt to remove the lash extensions yourself as this will cause premature pulling out of your natural lashes.


Are eyelash extensions suitable for everyone?

Anyone of any age can have eyelash extensions applied as long as there is a natural lash to glue the extension onto.
