FAQs

What are lash extensions?

Lash extensions are synthetic strands that are made to replicate a natural eyelash. When applied, eyelash extensions lengthen and thicken your own natural eyelashes. Single strands are applied to each individual eyelash, one by one. With proper application, lash extensions look and feel completely natural. A benefit to wearing eyelash extensions is to give you the illusion you are wearing mascara without having to wear any.

How long will the extensions last?

When applied by a professional, individual mink eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes. Depending on your activity and day to day routine, eyelash extensions should last you 2 to 4 weeks.

How often do I need fills?

A fill is needed to fill in any lashes that have fallen due to the natural cycle of your lashes, remove and replace grown out lashes. Depending on the person and look you desire we recommend getting fills every 2 to 3 weeks. If you do go longer than 3 weeks we require a Mega Fill. Fill appointments are approximately 60-90 minutes.

Can I apply mascara to lashes?

Mascara is not required since the extensions give you the illusion you are wearing mascara. One of the many benefits of eyelash extensions is that you do not need to use mascara. If you must apply mascara, however, only use water based mascara and apply only on the TIPS of your eyelash extensions. DO NOT USE OIL BASED OR WATER PROOF MASCARA as they can break down the glue and can shorten the life of your eyelash extensions. Use oil free makeup remover to remove any mascara from your lash extensions. CLEAN your lashes free of mascara before your lash appointment.

Can I swim, shower, exercise, hot tub, or go to a spa?

YES! The glue we use to apply your eyelash extensions is waterproof, you can swim, shower, exercise, sweat and use a sauna.

How soon can I wash my face after getting lash extensions?

We recommend you to wait 12-24 hours after your eyelash appointment to get your lash extensions wet.

How do I care for my lash extensions?

  •  DO NOT RUB your eyelash extensions.

  •  DO NOT PICK your eyelash extensions. Picking can cause permanent damage to your natural lashes.

  • DO NOT TOUCH your eyelash extensions. The natural oil from your hand can break down the glue.

  •  ALWAYS use your eyelash brush and brush them daily.

  • Avoid getting your eyelashes wet until 12-24 hours after your lash appointment.

  •  If you wear any eye makeup, use an oil free makeup remover when cleaning around the eyes.

  • Avoid wearing eyeliner on the lash line, we recommend the water line for eyeliner.

  • Use your eye cream in the morning.

  • If you have the desire to use mascara only apply on the tips of your lash extensions.

How long does it take apply lash extensions? 

A full set of eyelash extensions take 2 to 2 and a half hours to apply. Fills take approximately 60-90 minutes.

Can I choose the look or style?

Absolutely! We will have a consultation in the beginning or your full set appointment to decide what curl, length and thickness you desire. Working with your natural eye and eyebrow shape, you can choose a classic, natural, dramatic or glamorous look.

Are there any pre-appointment things I need to do? 

You should thoroughly clean your lashes with an oil free cleanser removing all mascara from your natural eyelashes. If you wear contacts remove your contact lenses prior to your appointment.

Can you wear contacts with lash extensions?

YES! Eyelash extensions do not conflict or interfere with your contacts or normal daily activities.
