How do I choose the look I want?
Eyelash extensions are available in a number of lengths and thickness. We normally consult with you first to see what type of style you are interested in. We also determine what your lashes can hold in regards to size. Each person's lashes will vary in strength and length. We take this into consideration when creating a look for you. The overall look of the lashes is very natural. Four different lash sets ranging from basic to glamour. Please see pricing to view the different lash sets and applicable cost.

With proper application, meaning one synthetic eyelash applied to one natural lash the look and feel is completely natural looking and real. Nobody will know you have extensions. They will just think you were born with beautiful, long lashes!

What are the lashes made of?
Lashes are available in several different materials including Synthetic, Silk, Faux Mink and 100% Siberian Mink. The desired look and the condition of your own lashes is what helps us as the professional decide what to use. Each material offers a different curl and thickness, which varies the look and feel of your lashes.

Do your eyelashes need to be a certain length in order to attach the extensions?
Your lashes do not need to be a certain length, although you need to have a lash to apply to, since the lash is applied to the hair. If your lash is shorter or thinner than average or damaged, it may limit how long and thick we'll apply the lashes.

The adhesive glue used is very safe. It is formaldehyde-free and medical-grade.

How safe is the process ?
The application process is pain-free and relaxing that most clients fall asleep during the procedure. However, improper application by an unqualified eyelash technician can cause damage to your natural lashes. We recommend only using a Certified & Licensed Eyelash Extension Specialist who has extensive hands-on experience.
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. It must however 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.

Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing Eyelash Extensions?
Yes. The bonding agent we use is waterproof and allows you to shower, swim, exercise etc. Special care is required but overall maintenance is low. Many salons require a 24-48 hour curing process before getting the eyelashes wet. Our adhesive and curing process is immediate! No need to wait to get your eyelash extensions wet!

Can I use Eyelash Curlers with Eyelash Extensions?
We do not recommend using 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 we recommend using a heated eyelash curler or curling gel available through your Specialist.

Can I use regular make-up remover?
Care also needs to be taken in washing off make-up. Only use a water-based eye makeup remover. Several options are also available through your Specialist.
How long does it take to apply the lashes?
Depending on if you want traditional single lashes or 3D Volume extensions and how thich you want your lash line to look will determine how long the process will take. It can take anywhere from an hour to an hour and 45 minutes for traditional eyelash extensions. 3D Volume eyelash extensions take about 2 hours if you are upgrading from a traditional eyelash extensions set or around 2-1/2 to 3 hours for a full 3D Volume set.  

What can I expect during my appointment?
It is actually a very relaxing procedure and most people fall asleep! You will lay comfortably on a massage table with your eyes closed. The Eyelash professional 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.

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 touch-ups should only be required every 2 to 3 weeks.

How often should I get the lashes maintained or get "Fills" ?
With either traditional Classic Single lashes or Russian 3D Volume we recommend getting "Fills" every 2 to 3 weeks.

If you wait too long your eyelash extensions will fall out and you will require a full set. Your natural eyelashes fall out, one-by-one 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 exposure to oils, touching your eyes a lot, stress, extreme weather changes, medictions, medical problems, malnutrition may cause the extensions to fall sooner. A touch up is needed to fill in any lashes that fallen. Fills vary from 60-90 minutes and we can help guide you as to which one to book. Fill time is based on how well you take care of the extensions, how big your eyes are and your individual growth cycle.
