What are lash extensions and how are lash extensions applied?

Lash extensions are semi-permanent, and they are applied by bonding a synthetic lash to your own natural lash. 

Eyelash extensions are applied with precision by isolating each individual natural lash with tweezers and carefully bonding a synthetic lash extension to it using a specialized adhesive. This meticulous process enhances the length, volume, and curl of your lashes, resulting in a beautifully customized and professional look. The process usually takes around two hours (for new set), and the results can last for up to five weeks.

The benefits of lash extensions are that they give you thicker, longer and fuller looking lashes without the need for mascara or eyelash curlers.


What should I expect after my appointment?

Prepare to fall in love with your stunning transformation! Whether it's lash extensions or lifts, get ready for eyes that pop and a confidence boost like never before. Embrace your newfound radiance and step out with unwavering confidence in your beautiful new look.


How to take care of lash extensions?

Remember to avoid getting the lash extensions wet for the first 24 hours after application!

To care for your eyelash extensions, avoid oil-based products, excessive rubbing, and touching. Use a gentle, oil-free cleanser to clean them daily, and brush them with a spoolie to maintain their shape. Additionally, avoid exposing them to excessive heat and steam, and refrain from using waterproof mascara or eyeliner directly on them. Regular touch-up appointments every 2-3 weeks are also recommended to maintain their fullness and longevity.

PRO TIP: Eyelash shampoo is beneficial for maintaining the cleanliness and health of eyelash extensions. It helps remove dirt, oil, and makeup residue that can accumulate on the lashes, which not only keeps them looking fresh but also prevents potential issues such as bacterial growth or lash loss. Additionally, using an eyelash shampoo can help prolong the retention of your extensions by ensuring that they are free from debris and buildup, promoting better adhesion to the natural lashes.


Do lash extensions damage your natural lashes?

No, lash extensions will not damage your natural lashes when applied correctly by a trained professional and properly maintained. Eyelash extensions should not damage your natural lashes, they can actually help to improve the health of your lashes by providing a protective barrier from things like dirt and makeup. Lash extensions can also help to increase the length and volume of your lashes, giving you a more dramatic look.


How often should you get lash extensions?

The recommended frequency of eyelash extension maintenance depends on individual lash growth patterns. As a general guideline, scheduling an infill appointment every 2-3 weeks ensures the ongoing fullness and neatness of your lashes.

Should your lashes require attention sooner due to natural shedding or other factors, promptly booking a new appointment is advisable to prevent gaps in coverage.

Delaying until your lashes are significantly sparse is discouraged. Furthermore, to uphold the health and aesthetics of your lashes, it's advisable to consider a fresh set after 3-4 infill appointments.
