EYELASH EXTENSIONS FAQ

What are Eyelash Extensions?
Extensions are single strands of synthetic or mink eyelashes that are applied to individual eyelashes, one lash at a time, for a natural, elegant and luscious look.

What do they look like and how do they feel?

With proper application, Eyelash Extensions look and feel completely real.

How long do Eyelash Extensions Last?
When applied properly, semi-permanent Eyelash Extensions can last up to 6 weeks, depending on the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes and the expertise of the technician applying the eyelash extensions. You will probably want touch-ups every two to four weeks.

Can I apply mascara to Eyelash Extensions?

Yes. However, be sure to only use mascara that is water soluble, or one designed specifically for eyelash extensions.
Waterproof mascara along with any type of oil based mascara will dissolve the bonding agent and cause the Eyelash Extensions to fall off.

Can I wear my contact lenses with these extensions?

Yes

Could I possibly have an allergic reaction to the adhesive?

It doesn't touch the skin, as the lashes are glued to your own rather than the lid.

How often should I get touch-ups?
We recommend getting a touch up every two to four weeks. A natural eyelash falls off every 60 to 90 days on average due to the natural growth cycle and is naturally replaced with the growth of a new eyelash. At any given moment, each of your natural eyelashes is at a different stage of its life cycle. A touch up is needed to replenish the lashes that have completed their life cycle.

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

Yes. Our specially formulated bonding agent allows you to shower, swim, exercise, sleep and spa worry-free while wearing Eyelash Extensions. You can enjoy these lashes with little need to adjust your lifestyle. Please do not swim or spa for 48 hours after the procedure to allow the bonding agent to fully cure. After this, you can swim and spa - worry free.

Can I apply Eyelash Extensions to my own eyelashes?
No. Only a trained professional will be able to safely apply Eyelash Extensions. Unprofessional application or self-application may cause eye injury or clumpy, unnatural looking lashes. Eyelash Extensions are applied one lash at a time to your individual natural eyelashes to achieve long, thick and natural looking eyelashes. The procedure involves bonding the synthetic extension to your own natural eyelashes.
   
How do I take care of Eyelash Extensions?
Your new Eyelash Extensions are long, thick and beautiful! Once applied, they last up to 2 months. Best of all, they are easy to maintain. Your Eyelash Extensions service provider will give you a detailed easy care maintenance instruction manual following your procedure. To maintain this look and extend the life of your lashes, follow these easy care instructions:  (You will be given a take home care guide after application.)

- Do not wash eyes or shower for 24 hours after lash application. Do not swim or spa for 48 hours after lash application to allow adequate time for bonding.
- Be gentle with your lashes.
- Avoid rubbing your eyes.
- Avoid oil-based and waterproof mascara. Water based mascara and water based mascara remover may be used. Use mascara sparingly and gently remove mascara with water-based eye makeup remover. Ask your Eyelash Extensions Professional if she carries Eyelash Extensions water-based mascara, specially formulated for eyelash extensions, or purchase it here. Apply mascara on the tips only.
- We recommend getting a touch up every two to four weeks.

Can you describe the application process?
You will be comfortably reclined with your eyes closed while Eyelash Extensions are applied individually to your natural eyelashes. Depending on the experience of the professional applying Eyelash Extensions, it generally takes between 60 to 180 minutes to apply one set of Eyelash Extensions. The procedure is so relaxing and comfortable that many clients fall asleep.
