There are SO many things to know about eyelash extension before you get them applied. We have decided to help you in your quest for beautiful eyelashes and address all the questions you may be having so that when you pick up your phone to make an appointment, you are positive that it is right for you!
How long will my eyelash extensions last?
As you may already know, your eyelashes are constantly growing and falling out therefore your eyelash extensions will gradually fall as well. Normally a full set of lashes will last 3-4 weeks without loosing much of the fullness. Of course, the well-being of your lashes depends greatly on how careful you are with them and how well you maintain them.
How are they applied?
They are applied while your eyes are closed and are laying almost all the way back on one of our comfortable recliner chairs. Our technicians apply each individual lash one by one to your natural eyelashes, not the skin on your eyelid.
How long does it take to apply a full set of lashes?
Will eyelash extensions damage my natural eyelashes?
No they do not! This is the beauty of eyelash extension. Our experienced eyelash technicians apply each individual lash to your natural lash, allowing your natural lash to grow as it would normally.
Is there anything I need to avoid once I have them on?
Yes, when you have your eyelash extensions on it is important to avoid any contact with oil or steam. If you moisturize your face regularly, try to use a moisturizer that does not have any oils in it. Instead of taking a hot shower, try to take luke warm or slightly colder showers and avoid steam if possible. The reasons for this is that both oil and steam may loosen the adhesive that allows the lashes to stay on and ultimately result in your new lashes falling out faster. We also advise you to refrain from rubbing your eyes or picking at your lashes, this will also cause your lashes to fall out faster.
Can the extensions get wet?
Yes, your new eyelashes can get wet. We advise you to refrain from having contact with water and your eyelashes for at least 24 hours after you have them applied. After that you may proceed with any activities involving water! Just note that the less contact your eyelashes get with water, the longer they will last.
What types of lashes are there?
We supply both Mink and Silk eyelash extensions. They are available in two different thicknesses (0.15mm or 0.20mm). They are available in two different curls (J-Curl or C-Curl). They are available in five different lengths (9mm, 10mm, 11mm, 12mm, 13mm). They are available in three different designs (Natural, Cute or Sexy). We also have gorgeous specialty single lashes that either have a single Swarovski Crystal adhered to it (available in many colors) or a Sparkling Lash that is completely covered in shimmering glitter (available in many colors)! These specialty lashes add a bit of fun and color to your new set of lashes; perfect for parties, proms or other fun occasions!
What’s the main difference between the Mink and the Silk lashes?
The main difference between the two types of lashes are the look and the feel. Mink lashes are lighter weight, but produce a thicker and more dramatic affect, while the Silk lashes are softer and produce a more sultry and natural affect.
Can I use other eyelash enhancement products at the same time?
Yes, you may use any type of lash enhancement products while the extensions are on. Although we do advise you to refrain from using eyelash curlers and to use special extension mascara instead of your normal mascara. Your everyday mascara usually clumps the lashes too much which can result in your lashes looking unnatural or falling out faster. In our salon we are equipped with numerous specialty extension mascaras you can choose from for a small fee!
Do I need touch up? If so, how often?
Yes, if you would like to maintain the full set of eyelashes in it’s entirety you will need touch-ups. We recommend our customers to schedule their touch-up appointments for 2-3 weeks after the first application.
How much do they cost?
Our prices vary with which type of lash you would prefer. A full set of Mink lashes will cost from $160-$180 depending on the length. A full set of Silk lashes will cost from $180-$200 depending on the length. A touch-up after one week of Mink lashes costs from $40-$45, after two weeks $80-$90 and after three weeks $120-$135. A touch-up after one week of Silk lashes costs from $45-$55, after two weeks $90-$100 and after three weeks $135-$150.
