Eyelash Extensions FAQs

HOW LONG DO EYELASH EXTENSIONS LAST?

This all depends on your own personal habits and up-keep. It is important to follow the care instructions provided to you.

WHAT ARE THE CARE INSTRUCTIONS?

We recommend to not get your recently applied lash extensions wet within 24 hours of your appointment.

CAN I WEAR MASCARA WITH MY EYELASH EXTENSIONS?

Yes you can! We recommend purchasing eyelash extension mascara that is created specifically for use with lash extensions. However, you can use your regular brand as long as it is not waterproof mascara or oil based. Be sure to use an oil free remover that will not remove waterproof mascara.

CAN I WEAR MAKEUP TO MY LASH APPOINTMENT?

Face makeup is okay, but please do not have any eye makeup on, including mascara. The reason for this is that your lashes need to be completely dry and in their natural state for the best possible results.  If we have to remove eye makeup, that will take away from your eyelash extension application time.

WHY IS MY APPOINTMENT SO LONG?

We pride ourselves on quality and in creating a peaceful environment for our clients so that the time spent is a little longer than an average beauty appointment. Single lash extensions are applied one at a time, in a one extension to one natural lash application.  This technique requires careful attention to detail to create your ideal look.

CAN I TALK TO MY TECHNICIAN DURING MY SERVICES?

Talking creates movement which can distract and/or make lash placement difficult.  Plan for this to be a time to relax and unwind rather than socialize.

WILL HAVING EYELASH EXTENSIONS APPLIED HURT?

The process is very painless.

CAN I REMOVE MY LASHES MYSELF?

Your lashes will fall out on their own in time. We do not recommend pulling or try to take off lashes on your own. We offer eyelash extensions removal and will be happy to remove them correctly, with specialized lash tools and products.

DOES THIS DAMAGE MY NATURAL EYELASHES?

The answer is NO! We take the upmost care to ensure your natural eyelashes are not damaged.

AFTERCARE

HERE ARE SOME TIPS TO CARE FOR YOUR NEW EYELASH EXTENSIONS. WITH PROPER CARE AND FILLS, YOUR EYELASHES CAN LAST INDEFINITELY.

Do not get your eyelashes wet for the first 24 hours after application.

Do not use a spa, sauna, pool or go swimming for the first 48 hours after application. The lash extensions need at least 24 hours to properly bond.

Avoid pulling on your lashes or rubbing your eyes.

Wash your lashes with an oil-free wash every time you wash your face.

Do not use a manual eyelash curler with your extensions.

Use only mascaras that are lash extension safe. No oil-based or waterproof mascara. Remember to wash it off with an oil-free lash wash daily.

After showering, avoid rubbing your lashes. Blot your eyelashes with a towel and let them air dry, then brush with the brushes you received at your appointment.

Proper hygiene is important. Please keep your eyelashes clean with regular washing.

Use care when applying facial and eye creams to avoid the lash line. Too many oil based products can break down the adhesive.

HOW TO WASH YOUR LASHES

Wash your lashes daily with upward strokes, letting the foamy eyelash shampoo clean between each lash and get rid of any buildup. Rinse well with warm water. When drying your eyes, make sure you are not too rough with the lashes. Do not use any material that will get caught in them, such as cotton pads or buds. Use a towel that has no loose threads and gently pat your eyes dry, ensuring nothing gets caught on the lashes.

If you find that you still need to use mascara, ensure that it is a water-based mascara and that you are removing all traces of makeup each time it is worn. This also aids in preventing infection and extends the life of your lash extensions.
