Eyelash extensions are the latest and hottest breakthrough in cosmetics. Transform your own natural lashes with eyelash extensions to create longer, full and thicker dream lashes. Below are some commonly asked eyelash FAQs.
What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent single-strands of faux mink lashes that are used to create volume and extend the length of the natural eyelash. They are applied to individual eyelashes, one lash at a time, for a natural, elegant and luscious look. Our lashes are perfect for special occasions as well as for everyday wear.
What do they look like and how do they feel?
Our lashes look and feel completely real and natural. We use Minkys eyelash extensions exclusively, which are a professional line of extensions that mimic natural eyelashes with adhesives produced in the USA. They know how to make lashes and we know how to lash you!
How long do eyelash extensions last?
When applied correctly, your eyelash extensions will fall out with your natural lash as it ends its growth cycle. You will probably want touch-ups every three to four weeks to maintain your lush eyelashes. Our adhesives are specially formulated with a unique waterproof bonding agent to last. Other adhesives may not last as long because of an inferior bonding strength.
Can I apply eyelash extensions to my own eyelashes?
No. Only a trained professional will be able to safely apply eyelash extensions. Unprofessional application or self-application may cause eye injury, clumpy, unnatural looking lashes, or damage to your own lashes. Our techs are trained and certified to apply one lash at a time to achieve long, thick, luscious and natural-looking lashes.
Can you describe the application process?
You will be comfortably reclined with your eyes closed while extensions are applied individually to your natural eyelashes. Application generally takes between 90 to 150 minutes to apply a full set of lashes. The procedure is so relaxing and comfortable, that many clients fall asleep!
Who uses eyelash extensions?
Everyone! Hollywood has long since enjoyed extending their beauty with eyelash extensions. Models and actors have been using eyelash extensions for years. Now, you can have them too. Because they look so real, anyone could be wearing them and you would never know!
Do the eyelash extensions harm my natural lashes?
The biggest myth is that lash extensions ruin your own lashes. They do not. When applied correctly and properly, they are safe and do not ruin the health of your natural lashes. Since the extensions are applied to your existing lashes away from the base, never touching the skin, the growth cycle of the natural lash is not affected.
What is a full set?
Full sets are considered to have anywhere from 80-150 lashes per eye, depending on the client’s eyelash type. If you see a lower price advertised, look into the amount of lashes applied. Also inquire whether they are using strips, clusters or individual lashes.
Can I swim, spa or have a facial service with extensions?
Yes! Our eyelash application can keep up with your busy lifestyle! Our extensions are waterproof so you can shower, swim, spa and live your life with LUSH lashes.
Can I wear mascara on my eyelash extensions?
With eyelash extensions, there is no need for mascara! In fact, we don’t recommend using mascara, as it can cause clumping to your lashes.
How are eyelash extensions removed?
Your eyelash professional will remove these using a lash-free adhesive remover solvent. No damage will be done to your own lashes.
