What Are Eyelash Extensions?
They are semi-permanent eyelash extensions comprised of individual synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. They are applied to individual eyelashes, one extension at a time, for a natural, elegant look to lengthen and add fullness to the existing lashes.
What do they look like and how do they feel?
Eyelash extensions look and feel completely real and move with your natural lashes. Each application is customized to suit each individual. Varying lash lengths are chosen to carefully replicate the shape and frame of a natural lash line. The thickness is determined by the health and thickness of your natural lashes. The overall effect is added curl, thickness and length, opening up the eye for added definition. As long as you keep up with the relash applications, it is almost impossible to tell that you are wearing the extensions.
What are the benefits of wearing eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions create the appearance of a brighter, more open and rested eye, thereby creating a more youthful and rejuvenated look. Having eyelash extensions saves time during your beauty regimen allowing you to spend less time with makeup; mascara is certainly no longer necessary. The added benefit is that they look beautiful morning and night, all day, every day. Say goodbye to the application of mascara, stained tears and mascara raccoon masks around the eyes. With eyelash extensions you can look and feel gorgeous from the moment you wake up until the moment you fall asleep with little to no effort.
How long do eyelash extensions last?
The look can be maintained indefinitely with the proper care and maintenance. Touch-ups are suggested once every 2-3 weeks to replace and maintain the look we have created for you.
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. People typically shed between 1 and 5 natural lashes each day, depending on their individual growth cycles.
Eyelash Extension Care
How do I take care of my eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are easy to maintain. You should keep your lashes clean and avoid touching them. Care of your eyelash extensions is fairly simple: avoid oil based products, cleanse your lashes regularly and be gentle with the lashes. They are resistant to water, sweat and tears.
We will provide you with easy After Care Instructions following your procedure. To maintain your new look and extend the life of your lashes, follow these simple guidelines:
Avoid the use of oil-based products on or around the eyelashes. Eyelash extensions are ideally suited for individuals who want longer, fuller lashes without the need for much additional eye makeup. Constant application of heavy eye makeup, particularly mascara and eyeliner, may reduce the lifespan of your eyelash extensions and require more frequent touch-ups.
We recommend getting a Relash every 2-3 weeks to maintain maximum fullness of your eyelash extensions. Waiting longer than 2-3 weeks may result in having to get a new set to repair your look and get you back on a good maintenance routine.
Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing eyelash extensions?
You can enjoy these eyelashes with little need to adjust your lifestyle. Provided you follow the simple after care instructions and are not excessively exposed to heat or moisture, they will last through the natural lash life cycle and fall off with the natural lash, not before. You can swim, shower and spa as usual.
A competitive swimmer who is constantly in the chlorinated water may lose some lashes earlier than the average person. Someone who gets very frequent facials or goes into the steam room daily may lose lashes quicker. Doing an above average level of activities related to heat or constant water exposure may weaken the adhesive bond, causing some early lash extension loss.
Can I apply mascara to eyelash extensions?
One of the main advantages of wearing eyelash extensions is that you never need mascara again.
What do I do if I want them removed?
As the natural lashes cycle out and shed, eyelash extensions will shed with them. However, if necessary, your eyelash extensions can be professionally removed by using our specially formulated adhesive remover. The removal process normally takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes for a full set. Never try to remove eyelash extensions on your own. Damage can be caused by pulling the extensions off with the natural lash.
