What are lash extensions?
Eyelash Extensions are the perfect accessory to extend and thicken your natural lashes without the use of mascara. Extensions are a individually adhered synthetic extension applied to one a individual natural lash. Extensions can be worn daily without removing them nightly and are fully customized to your eye shape.
Will they damage my natural lashes?
No they will not when they are applies properly. What does this mean? We look at your eyelashes, apply the most appropriate eyelash extension based upon your individual lash length and strength. Eyelash extensions should never hurt or cause your natural lashes to break. Once your natural lash is ready to shed, the extension placed on the lash naturally sheds along with it so there is no pulling, breakage or damage to your natural lash.
How long do they really last?
With properly applied lash extensions and proper at-home care, eyelash extensions may be worn as long as you would like.. With proper at home care, the adhesive will last anywhere from 4-6 weeks. However, you do lose 3-5 natural lashes everyday (from each eye) so after an average of 3 weeks, most clients will want to come in for a "touch up" to keep their lashes looking full. There are many factors that could affect the retention of your extensions including improper home care, not cleaning the lash line, oily eyelids, the use of oil based products on or around the eyeliner, medications, allergies, thyroid or hormonal issues, lifestyle, seasonal changes, a natural heavy lash shed, and so much more.
