Eyelash Extensions are individual lashes, made of either silk, synthetic silk, or mink, that are attached to your natural lashes semi-permanently. Have you ever dreamt of waking up with Bambi lashes but without the raccoon eye mascara dangling a foot under your eye, this is your solution. Curious? Here are a few things you need to know about getting eyelash extensions:
1. It’s A Very Relaxing Process.
We have a joke…”Lash naps are free”. You lean back in a comfortable reclining chair and close your eyes for a while. Music plays in the background and a lash technician attaches little feathery nothings to your lashes. It’s the most socially acceptable nap-time a working adult could ask for.
2. Get Your Customized No Mascara Eyelash Style.
Eyelash extensions are customizable. There is a consultation before each lash extensions service (a full set or a fill), to determine and design the lash style you desire. Your lash technician will choose different lash extensions lengths, curls and colors, so that you have the eyelashes that you want when you wake from your lash nap.
3. Eyelash Extensions Are Semi-Permanent.
The glue used for eyelash extensions is different from the glue used for strip lashes, flares and clusters. Eyelash extensions glue is designed to adhere eyelash extensions to natural lashes and keep them on for several weeks. With proper care, (home care and fills) eyelash extensions can last up to a month and a half. We recommend receiving a fill services every 2-3 weeks based on your retention.
4. Care & Retention Tips.
First and foremost NO WATER on your lash extensions for at least 24 hours. No oily products near your eyes. Remove makeup with oil-free makeup remover and Q-tips or a small brush for precision. We don’t recommend wearing mascara, however if you do make sure it is mascara specifically for eyelash extensions or is “Water Based”. Brush and clean your eyelash extensions daily.
5. Yes Eyelash Extensions Can Ruin Your Natural Eyelashes—But They Don’t Have To.
First thing to do in order to keep your natural lashes healthy while wearing eyelash extensions is to make sure your service provider has completed the certification requirements and training from a State Licensed Instructor. Most of the reasons why people have a bad experience with eyelash extensions are due to un-certified individuals, who don’t use the proper tools or techniques to apply lash extensions. When properly applied by a certified lash tech eyelash extensions are safe and wont damage your natural lashes. Once you get your eyelash extensions, follow the recommended home care sheet, minimize pulling, and rubbing your eye area & lash extensions. Also we recommend using an eyelash serum while wearing eyelash extensions. Lash serums gives us lots of healthy lashes to lash and helps with retention. When you no longer want to wear eyelash extensions have them professionally removed (which is fast and painless) or let them fall out naturally. Trying to remove them yourself could be painful and cause damage to your natural eyelashes.
CLASSIC vs VOLUME
Classic eyelash extensions are the original eyelash extensions application technique. It is one lash extension per one natural lash. Classic eyelash extensions are recommended for clients who have a lot of natural lashes and want their lashes longer. Classic eyelash extensions give the most natural look.
