WHAT ARE EYELASH EXTENSIONs?
Semi-permanent eyelash extensions are synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. Our lashes are thicker at the base and taper to a fine point. They are applied on to individual eyelashes, one at a time, for a natural, elegant look to lengthen and add fullness to the existing lashes. The look can be maintained indefinitely with refills.
When properly applied, Eyelash Extensions will remain in place until the natural lash sheds. This can be as long as two months or more. Natural eyelashes grow in and fall out in cycles (every 60 to 90 days). When a natural lash matures and falls out, a new lash has already been growing and quickly replaces it without us noticing the turnover. This process is constant and at any given moment our many natural lashes are at different stages of maturity. Some are just growing in, while others are ready to shed. P
The looks and possibilities are endless! they can be customized to achieve many desirable looks and can range from glamorous to natural.
WHAT SHOULD YOU AVOID?
Eyelash extensions are quite durable, and waterproof! You should avoid getting them wet for 24 hrs. You should also avoid oily products such as makeup removers, beauty oils, creams and serums that are oil based.
With very few restrictions and recommended maintenance, you could enjoy fabulous lashes indefinitely!
when are fills recommended?
Fills are recommended every 2-3 weeks.
How long does the application process take?
The application process varies from client to client, as they are customized to every individual. A full set can take between 2-3 hrs. and 2 week fills could take anywhere from 45 minutes -1 hr.
what kind of aftercare is recommended?
You must wait 24 hours to expose your eyelash extensions to water after the initial application.
Avoid sleeping directly on your lashes; note that the side you normally sleep on is more susceptible to shedding.
Avoid getting non-oil free moisturizers, eye creams or makeup removers on or around your lash extensions.
Avoid any cosmetic product or cleanser containing organic solvents, urea, glycols, or high concentrations of alcohol. These products can potentially break down the adhesive bond and shorten the duration of time extensions stay on.
Avoid using mascara
Do not use liquid, cream or pencil eyeliners; powder is recommended.
Avoid rubbing or pulling on your extensions. Any action that repeatedly puts stress or strain on your lash extensions will cause them to shed prematurely.
It is not recommended to curl eyelash extensions. Because the extensions are pre-curled, additional curling is not necessary and doing so may shorten the lifespan of the extensions by compromising the adhesive bond.
Be sure to keep your extensions clean and schedule recommended maintenance!
