FAQ FOR EYELASH EXTENSIONS
Do I need to prep before my appointment?
-Arrive with a freshly clean face and impeccably clean lashes.
Residual oils and makeup remaining on the lashes will only prevent the adhesive from properly bonding.
This point needs to be stressed – do not arrive still wearing eye makeup.
-Arrive freshly showered and with clean hair. You won’t be able to wet the lashes for the initial 24 hours after application.
-Remove your contacts, if you wear them. I recommend my clients wear glasses the day of service.
Will eyelash extensions damage my natural lashes?
This is a myth! Eyelash Extensions DO NOT cause any damage to your natural lashes when applied correctly by a certified eyelash technician who knows the accurate way of applying eyelash extensions in the safest way possible.
Keep in mind, rubbing or pulling on your extensions can cause lash loss and damage, you do have to be careful with them.
How long does it take to apply for lash extensions?
A full set of lashes takes between 2hrs-2.5hrs. A Refill takes between 1hr-1.5hr.
Can I apply eye makeup to my lash extensions?
Yes, you can – as long as it is oil-free. This ingredient attacks the glue, loosening the lash bond and causing extensions to fall. If you’re using mascara on your bottom lashes, please make sure it IS oil free! No mascara on your eyelash extensions!
How long will eyelash extensions last?
Between 2-3 weeks. You must follow after care instructions if you want to ensure your lashes last you longer!
What are the different types of eyelash extension styles?
- Classic 1:1 ratio,
- Volume 2-6D,
- Hybrid (Mix of classic & Volume),
- Mega volume 6+D.
Why do the extensions fall out?
-THE MOST COMMON: LASH GROWTH CYCLE !
Your lashes are shedding as part of their natural growth cycle, old lashes fall out and new ones grow through to take their place.
-WEARING OIL-BASED MAKEUP ON YOUR GORGEOUS LASHES!
The oil in the makeup (mascara, liquid liner, eyeliner) will break down the adhesive overtime and the lashes will eventually just slide off.
Eyelash Extensions take away the need for mascara, however you may still wish to use it on your lower lash line for some added definition.
If this is the case, then it’s a MUST that the makeup you use is OIL – FREE and eyelash extension safe.
– NOT CLEANING YOUR LASHES DAILY WITH A PROPER EYELASH EXTENSION CLEANSER
This is a big NO NO! Just like your skin; dirt and bacteria can build up on your lashes so it’s important that you keep them clean!
Washing them daily will remove the build up of bacteria and will ensure they are kept squeaky clean, resulting in longer lasting lashes!
