Eyelash extensions is a beauty service you don’t want to pass up! They are a great way to brighten your eyes and lessen the amount of time it takes for you to get ready in the morning!
Eyelash extensions are individual strands of the highest quality faux lashes expertly attached to your natural eyelash with a special medical grade adhesive and never in direct contact with your skin.
Eyelash Extension Facts
The procedure can take anywhere from 30 minutes for a refill to 120 minutes for a full set depending on client desire.
The procedure is completely safe and non-intrusive – the lashes are applied to each individual eyelash and never in direct contact with the skin. Simply lay down in a comfortable bed and relax – listen to music, a book, or just nap (most popular!).
If cared for properly, eyelash extensions can last up to 4 to 6 weeks. We will provide you with the simple instructions you need. There are natural products that we believe in and recommend as well to help keep your natural lashes healthy and strong.
Your natural lashes typically grow out and turn over every 45 to 60 days on average. We recommend coming in every 2 to 3 weeks for maintenance.
Mascara is not required… However, it may be worn. It MUST only be water based mascara. DO NOT USE OIL-BASED OR WATER-PROOF MASCARA. Waterproof mascara or any type of oil based mascara can dissolve the bonding agent and shorten the life of your eyelash extensions causing them to fall sooner. Care also needs to be taken in washing off the mascara. Only use a water based eye makeup remover.
The adhesive is waterproof and allows you to shower, swim, exercise etc. We do recommend however that you do not wash your eye area for 24 hours after the eyelash application. Special care is required but overall maintenance is low.
You will not feel that you are wearing them and nobody will be able to tell that they are not naturally your own - unless of course you want them to.
Before Arriving To Your Eyelash Extension Appointment
Remove Eye Makeup - Makeup must be removed prior to the application process, most importantly any makeup close to the eye. We recommend using a mild, oil-free cleanser. AVOID any oil-based makeup remover prior to your service as they will cause the extensions not to adhere properly.
Do not apply any type of face creams or sunblock prior the day of your application. The oil found in many moisturizers and sunblocks prevent eyelash adhesive from bonding to the natural eyelash and reduces the longevity of your eyelash extensions.
Do not wear mascara the day of your application. If you must wear mascara please make sure all mascara is removed prior to arriving to your appointment. Not removing your mascara WILL prevent proper application of the extensions.
Do not curl your lashes before your appointment. Extensions will not adhere to crimped eyelashes.
Remove contact lenses. Contact lenses can not be worn during the application process for any reason. Please make sure to bring glasses, contact cases, and solution if you want to take your lenses out at the salon.
