The extensions are semi-permanent and are made from single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. They provide length and thickness to your own lashes and are available in varying lengths and thickness. Each lash is applied one by one to your own natural eyelashes. Normally a person’s natural eyelash falls out every 60 – 120 days and a new lash grows in. Therefore, it is necessary to get touch-ups every 2 to 3 weeks to add lashes to the new growth. Your natural lash cycle as well as how you take care of your lashes will affect how long the extensions will last. Some clients have had their extensions for over a year with regular touch ups visits.

3D Eyelash extensions
A brand new technique which started in Russia approximately five years ago. The principles of this technique is the same as the classic way of applying extensions, however the application method uses 2 or 3 very fine lashes applied to every one natural lash. Because this method uses even finer, lighter lashes, there is no worry of the extensions weighing down the natural lash or causing any damage. The result is a softer, more luxurious, more voluminous look.

What Are Synthetic Eyelash Extensions?
Synthetic Eyelash Extensions is a popular new service that lengthens and thickens your natural eyelashes. Lash Extensions are single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. They are applied to each individual natural eyelash one by one for a natural, beautiful and luscious look. Eyelash Extensions are perfect for special occasions or for everyday wear.

With proper application, meaning one synthetic eyelash applied to one natural lash the look and feel is completely natural looking and real. No one will know you have extensions. They will just think you were born with beautiful, long lashes!
How long will a set of Eyelash Extensions Last?
When applied properly, eyelash extensions will last the length of your eyelashes natural growth cycle. Everyone’s experience will differ based on day to day activities but overall touch ups should only be required every 2 to 3 weeks. A special waterproof bonding agent is used to protect and extend the life of the lashes.
How often should I get touch-ups?
Your natural eyelashes fall off every 60 – 120 days due to the natural growth cycle and are naturally replaced with the growth of a new eyelash. Other factors such as exposure to steam or touching your eyes may cause the extensions to fall sooner. A touch up is needed to fill in any lashes that have fallen out and to fill in on the new growth. Touch ups will vary from individual to individual and depend on your natural eyelash cycle as well as how you take care of your extended lashes. Most touch ups are between 2 – 4 weeks. When you come in for regular touch ups, you should normally have at least 50% of your lash extensions still attached. If you wait too long many of your extensions may fall off and you will need to have the full set re-applied. Touch ups usually last approximately 45 minutes.
Can I apply mascara to Eyelash Extensions?
Yes – even though mascara is not really required since the extensions actually give the illusion of wearing mascara. It must however only be water based mascara. DO NOT — USE OIL-BASED OR WATER-PROOF MASCARA. Waterproof mascara or any type of oil based mascara can dissolve the bonding agent and shorten the life of your eyelash extensions causing them to fall sooner. Care also needs to be taken in washing off the mascara. Only use a water based eye makeup remover.
Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing Eyelash Extensions?
Yes. The bonding agent we use is waterproof and allows you to shower, swim, exercise etc. Special care is required but overall maintenance is low. However, do not wash your eye area for the first 24 hours after each application.
Can I use Eyelash Curlers with Eyelash Extensions?
We do not recommend using mechanical eyelash curlers on your eyelash extensions as these curlers will damage the extensions and possibly break your own natural lashes. The extensions do have a natural curl but if more of a curl is required we recommend using a heated eyelash curler.
How do I take care of my new Eyelash Extensions?
Do not get lashes wet for the first 24 hours.
Avoid hot steam or sauna for 48 hours.
Avoid running water directly on your lashes.
Do not rub your eyes.
Only use water based mascara (optional).
If applying mascara do so from middle to tip, avoid root area.
Use water based eye makeup remover.
Do not perm your lashes.
Do not use a mechanical eyelash curler.
Do not pull on your lashes (this may cause your natural lashes to come out prematurely).
Is the product FDA approved? Is it safe?
Currently the FDA is not regulating eyelash extensions since the eyelash extensions are applied to the natural eyelashes and do not touch the skin. The application process is pain-free and relaxing that most clients fall asleep during the procedure. However, improper application by an unqualified eyelash technician can cause damage to your natural lashes. We recommend only using a Certified Eyelash Extension Specialist.
How long will it take to Apply Eyelash Extensions and how is it done?
The application process for lash extensions normally takes anywhere from 1.5 hours to 2.5 hours. If you go to a newly certified professional it may take longer. You will lay comfortably on a massage or facial table with your eyes closed. The Eyelash professional will then apply an under eye gel pad to cover your lower lashes and upper lids. Then the extensions will be applied to each individual eyelash on a lash by lash basis.
How do I choose the look I want?
Eyelash extensions are available in a number of lengths and thickness. We consult with you first to see what type of style you are interested in. We also determine what your lashes can hold in regards to size. Each person’s lashes will vary in strength and length. We take this into consideration when creating a look for you. The overall look of the lashes is very natural.
For the natural look, between 40-100 lashes applied to each eye. For a more glamorous or extreme set of lashes, as many as 100 plus extensions may be applied per eye. Please keep in mind for a glamorous or extreme set of lashes, you must have enough healthy & natural lashes to support this look.
Initial visit may take up to 2 hours for consultation & lash application.
