What Are Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash Extensions are a popular new service and product that lengthens and thickens
your own natural eyelashes. Lash Extensions are single strands of synthetic eyelashes
that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. They are applied to each individual natural eyelash one by one for a natural, beautiful and luscious look. Eyelash Extensions are perfect for special occasions or for day to day wear.

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 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 touch-ups?

I recommend getting a touch up every 2 to 3 weeks. If you wait too long your eyelash
extensions will fall off and you will require a full set. Your natural eyelashes
shed every 45 - 60 days due to the natural growth cycle and are naturally replaced with
the growth of a new eyelash. Other factors such as overexpsoure to steam, touching
your eyes alot and perhaps the side you sleep on may cause the extensions to fall
sooner. A touch up is needed to fill in any lashes that fallen. Touch ups average about 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. DO NOT USE WATER-PROOF or WATER RESISTANT MASCARA. Care also needs to be taken in washing off the mascara. Only use a water based eye makeup remover. Whether you choose to wear mascara/eyeliner
or not, DO NOT avoid washing lashes or let makeup sit on them over night.

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

Yes. The lashes that are applied are waterproof and allows you to swim (salt
water/chlorine) steam, exercise etc. Special care is required but overall maintenance is
low. It is recommended however that you do not saturate your lashes and avoid steam
for about 12 hours after the eyelash application.

Can I use Eyelash Curlers with Eyelash Extensions?

Do not use 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 but if more of a curl is required I recommend using a heated eyelash curler.

How do I take care of my new Eyelash Extensions?

Do not get lashes wet and avoid hot steam or sauna for12 hours after extensions are applied
After the 12 hour period cleanse your lashes 1-2 daily with approved products. It is VERY
important for the health of the natural lash to keep the eye area clean! DO NOT allow makeup, mascara or eyeliner to sit on them over night. If you choose to wear eyeliner or mascara, make sure they are neither waterproof or water
resistant. Use approved makeup removers and cleansers
  • Do not perm your lashesDo not use a mechanical eyelash curler
  • Do not pull on your lashes (this may cause your natural lashes to come out prematurely)
  • NEVER remove your own extensions, this may pull out your natural lash and cause damage!

Is the product FDA approved? Is it safe?

Client safety is my first and highest priority, for this reason I only use
Novalash adhesive on my extension applications. Novalash Platinum Bond, is a
Pharmaceutical grade adhesive made in the USA in a FDA regulated facility. A team of
physicians and bio-chemist created this first formaldehyde-free* lash extension adhesive
(AEWCA guidlines define formaldehyde-free as less than .0001% by volume).

How long will it take to Apply Eyelash Extensions and how is it done?

The application process for lash extensions normally takes anywhere from 2-2 1/2
hours. You will lay comfortably on a facial table with your eyes closed. I will then apply an
under eye gel pad to cover your lower lashes . Then the extensions will be applied to
each individual eyelash on a hair by hair basis. Many find this to be very relaxing and fall
asleep during the process.

How do I choose the look I want?

Eyelash extensions are available in a number of lengths and thickness. I will consult with you first to see what type of style you are interested in. I will also determine what your lashes can hold in regards to size. Each person's lashes vary in strength and length. It is recommended not to exceed twice the length or thickness of your natural lash as this will affect the longevity of the lash set and over time, may compromise the natural lash. I will take this into consideration when creating a look for you. The overall look of the lashes is very natural.
