Lash Extensions FAQ
- What’s the difference between Classic, Volume & Hybrid?
With Classic Eyelash extensions we can achieve amazing results that allow our guests to go mascara free. This set is applied with a single lash extension to one natural lash allowing them to look thicker and longer. Our Volume Eyelash extensions are created by applying 3-5 fine, lightweight lashes together and applied to one single lash creating that fanned eyelash look allowing them to have the volume and fullness desired. Our Hybrid Eyelash extensions are a combination of the Classic Eyelash and Volume Eyelash creating length and fullness.
- How long will the extensions last?
When applied properly, eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes. Everyone’s experience will differ based on day to day activities but overall touch-ups should only be required every 2 to 3 weeks.
- How long will the process take?
The first application process for lash extensions takes about two hours but may vary depending on which set our guest has selected. You will lay comfortably on a massage table with your eyes closed. An under eye gel pad will be placed to cover your lower lashes then the extensions will be applied to each individual eyelash.
- Will they ruin my natural lashes?
The biggest myth is that lash extensions ruin your own lashes. If applied correctly and properly, they are safe and do not ruin the health of your natural lashes. Be sure not to rub your eyes or pull on the extensions because this can cause lash loss and even damage to your natural lashes.
- Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa?
Yes, once the 24-48 hours has passed. The adhesive we use is waterproof and allows you to shower, swim, exercise and resume normal activities. Special care is required but overall maintenance is low.
