What are Eye Lash Extensions?

Eyelash Extensions are semi-permanent eyelash extensions comprised of individual synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. Our lashes are thicker at the base and taper to a fine point. They are applied on to individual eyelashes, one extension at a time, for a natural, elegant look to lengthen and add fullness to the existing lashes.

How long will they last?

Usually 2-4 weeks. However, the look can be maintained indefinitely with refills. When properly applied, Eyelash Extension will remain in place until the natural lash on which it rests falls out. This can be as long as two months or more. 

Natural eyelashes grow in and fall out in cycles (every 30 to 90 days). When a natural lash matures and falls out, a new lash has already been growing and quickly replaces it without us noticing the turnover. This process is constant and at any given moment our many natural lashes are at different stages of maturity. Some are just growing in, while others are ready to shed. People typically shed between 1 and 5 natural lashes each day, depending on their individual growth cycles. On shorter natural lashes, this growing and shedding cycle is virtually unnoticeable. 

Benefits of Eye Lash Extensions:

Eyelash extensions add length & fullness to your lashes minimizing they need to wear makeup.

Lash extensions illiminate the daily need of mascara.

You wake up "bright eyed & bushy taled!"

Lash extensions re defines yours eye natural contour. Giving a natural eye lift effect.

They look fabulous.

More dramatic than mascara, yet far more natural than a strip of fake eyelashes, lash extensions are simply stunning when done right. 

They're instantly gratifying.

Lash extensions deliver the gorgeous lashes you want with one appointment, and you won't have to bother applying and removing mascara every day.

They can save you time.

There is an initial time commitment of getting eyelash extensions applied, but we found that they look best with minimal makeup, so you'll need less time to get ready in the morning, and have less wear and tear on your eyes from applying and removing makeup.

They can last for months and beyond!

Typically, lash extensions stay looking good for 2 to 3 weeks, but beyond that they will look less and less full. However, with regular refills, your overall lash extensions will last indefinitely.

Do's & Don'ts of Your Lash Extensions!

DON'T get your extensions wet for 24 to 48 hours�?after application. "Avoid working out,�?steam rooms or hot yoga.�?The adhesive will reactivate and may cause the lashes to stick together and look like caked-on mascara."

DO resist the urge to pull. "If you pick, tug, twist or excessively touch or brush your extensions, it could damage your natural lashes. If at any time you don't wish to continue, always have them professionally removed."

DON'T let moisture-rich products get onto your lashes. "Shampoo, conditioner, heavy creams or anything oil based will eventually loosen the bond. Tilt your head back when washing your hair or take a bath to avoid getting them wet. Some of my addicted clients use swimming goggles while showering!"

DO reshape your extensions after you shower. "Gently comb your lashes to fan them out or use a blow dryer set on "cool" to fan them back in place. Hold it arms length away from your face."

DON'T neglect your own lashes. "Maintain the health of your natural lashes with an eyelash conditioner or growth serum. They help the hairs to stay in the follicle longer resulting in stronger support for the extensions."

DO have fun. "Flaunt! Flirt! The best thing about�?lash extensions is that they are versatile and can be styled differently at every touch up appointment.�?For example, if you're going to Vegas, ask your lash artist to glam 'em up!"
