Frequently Asked Questions
What are Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash Extensions lengthen and thicken your own natural eyelashes. Lash Extensions are single strands (classic lashes) or multiple lightweight (volume lashes) synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. They are applied to each individual natural eyelash one by one for a natural, beautiful and luscious look. Eyelash Extensions are perfect for special occasions or for day to day wear.
What is the difference between Classic Eyelash Extensions and Volume Eyelash Extensions?
Classic lashes are a 1:1 method and will look like you have used an eyelash curler and have applied mascara.
Volume lashes are a 2:1-10:1 technique. Depending on the strength of your natural lash, the wight and length will be decided by your technician. These can range in looks from mascara to a dramatic strip lashes.
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 and at home care but over all touchups should only be required every 2 to 3 weeks.
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. Care also needs to be taken in washing off the mascara. Only use a water based eye makeup remover.
How do I take care of my new Eyelash Extensions?

How long will it take to apply Eyelash Extensions and how is it done?
A full set application process for lash extensions normally takes anywhere from 1.5 hours-3.5 hours depending on wether you are interested in Classic Lashes or Volume. You will lay comfortably on a massage or facial 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.
