What are Eyelash Extensions?
 
Not to be confused with the self-stick strip falsies of yesteryear or individual clusters of lashes knotted together that are a single-event accessory.
Eyelash Extensions are a new product that lengthens and thickens eyelashes. Eyelash Extensions are single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. They are applied to individual eyelashes, one lash at a time, for a natural, elegant and luscious look. Eyelash Extensions are perfect for special occasions as well as for every day wear.
 
Do eyelash extensions make my own lashes fall out?
 
No, definatley not this is a myth. Many of my clients have been with us since 2010 and have constantly had extensions applied with no break and they have never encountered their lashes all falling off.  It is important to have your lash extensions applied by a qualified operator who uses to quality product.  The eyelash has a cycle and are constantly being replaced like your hair.  If you pull so hard on an extension lash and pull out your own natural lash there will be no new lash ready to grow to take its place and you will have to wait 6-8 weeks for that lash to grow
 
Can I wear my contact lenses with these extensions?
Yes
 
Could I possibly have an allergic reaction to the adhesive?
It doesn't touch the skin, as the lashes are glued to your own rather than the lid.
 
What do they look like and how do they feel?
With proper application, Eyelash Extensions look and feel completely real. Many of my clients are very surprised that you cannot feel the Individual Eyelash extensions
 
How long do Eyelash Extensions Last?
When applied properly, semi-permanent Eyelash Extensions can last up to 2 months, depending on the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes and the expertise of the technician applying the eyelash extensions. You will probably want touch-ups every two weeks.
 
Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing Eyelash Extensions?
Yes. Our specially formulated bonding agent allows you to shower, swim, exercise, sleep and spa worry-free while wearing Eyelash Extensions. You can enjoy these lashes with little need to adjust your lifestyle. Please do not swim or spa for 48 hours after the procedure to allow the bonding agent to fully cure. After this, you can swim and spa - worry free.
 
How often should I get touch-ups?
We recommend getting a touch up every two-three weeks.
A natural eyelash falls out every 60 to 90 days on average due to the natural growth cycle and is naturally replaced with the growth of a new eyelash. At any given moment, each of your natural eyelashes is at a different stage of its life cycle. A touch up is needed to replenish the lashes that have completed their life cycle. 
 
Can I apply mascara to Eyelash Extensions?
One of the main advantages of Eyelash Extensions you never need to apply mascara 
 However, if you must have the mascara look, only water based mascara can be used. You can purchase our specially formulated Eyelash Extensions mascara from me .  DO NOT USE OIL-BASED OR WATER-PROOF MASCARA. Waterproof mascara along with any type of oil based mascara will dissolve the bonding agent and cause the Eyelash Extensions to fall off.
You must only use oil free makeup remover to remove eye make up.
