FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT ARE LASH EXTENSIONS?
Eyelash extensions are individually placed on the natural lash to enhance the length, curliness, fullness, and thickness.
ARE LASH EXTENSIONS SAFE?
Eyelash extensions are completely safe when applied properly by a trained professional and you follow all care instructions given by your technician.
DO LASH EXTENSIONS HURT?
In no way should applying nor the after wear of the eyelash extensions hurt in any way. If applied properly, the eyelash extensions should feel weightless, soft, and flexible.
ARE LASH EXTENSIONS RIGHT FOR ME?
Almost anyone can take a snooze and wake up feeling and looking refreshed, but if one or more of the following conditions apply to you, you may not be a good candidate for this service.
-You do not follow instructions well and are unable to maintain the aftercare guidelines provided by your tech.
-You rub your eyes frequently or pick at your lashes. If you rub your eyes frequently due to allergies, or if rubbing/picking is just a habit you can not break, we do not suggest this service to you.
-You are sick or feeling ill. Illness plays a big part in poor retention for the extensions, which is why we suggest waiting until you are feeling 100% better. This includes colds, sinus infections, allergy irritation. If your allergies are acting up, coming in for eyelash extensions can lead and cause an allergic reaction to products making you an unsuitable candidate for eyelash extensions.
-You do not have any natural lashes or are very sparse. Since the eyelash extensions are not and can not be placed on your skin, you will need to consult with your tech on the condition of your natural lash to see if you are a suitable candidate.
SHOULD I WEAR MAKEUP TO MY APPOINTMENT
Please DO NOT arrive to your appointment with any makeup. I ask all my clients to arrive with a clean face especially no eyeshadow/mascara. This ensures proper application during your service. And of course its highly recommended to not wear mascara after getting your extensions to ensure the you get the most out of your lashes.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CLASSIC, HYBRID, & VOLUME LASH
-Classic lashes are one extension per natural lash.
-Volume lashes are handmade fans that are 2-6 lash extensions put on to one natural lash (more dramatic/fuller look). The diameter for this is so fine, that’s why we’re able to place so many onto one natural lash.
-Hybrid would be a mix of the two.
What I always recommend for clients getting lash extensions for the first time is to try the classic set to see how you like it and then later we can always try a fuller look if that interests you.
HOW LONG DOES THE SERVICE TAKE?
Every client will vary in service time. Full sets will usually take anywhere from 60-90 minutes depending on how many natural lashes there are and service getting done. Fills are usually half the time depending on the time frame between appointments.
CAN I STILL MASCARA WITH EXTENSIONS?
We suggest mascara NEVER be applied to the eyelash extensions. Doing so can cause the extensions to look clumped and cause for premature shedding. If you desire a much more dramatic thicker look, please consult with your tech. If you wear mascara on your bottom lashes, we highly recommend to let the lashes dry before you blink. Cleansing your lashes regularly is recommended to get long wear out of your investment.
WILL MY NATURAL LASHES FALL OUT?
Your lashes grow in 3 phases where they shed naturally and a new lash will grow in its place. On average, one could loose 20% of their natural lashes every 2 weeks, which is why we recommend coming every 3-4 weeks for fills. You could loose 1-3 natural lashes a day per eye and in shedding phases 3-5. So don't be alarmed if you see your natural lash attached to an extension on your cheek.
