  • Are Lash Extensions safe?

    Currently the FDA is not strictly regulating eyelash extensions because the eyelash extensions are applied only to the natural eyelashes and do not actually touch the skin. The application process is pain-free and relaxing that most clients fall asleep during the procedure.

    Improper application by an unqualified, untrained eyelash technician can cause damage to your natural lashes. We recommend only using a Certified Eyelash Extension Specialist. Make sure to only get your lashes done by a licensed esthetician, cosmetologist or specialist who had gone through proper lash training and certification process.

  • How do I protect myself from untrained lash technician?

    It is very important to check to see if your eyelash technician has the proper Lash Training Certification displayed in the working area.

    WARNING: Some unlicensed and licensed beauticians learn to do eyelash extensions by self-taught methods. Most of the beauty schools only train beauticians how to apply strip and cluster lashes. Some Cosmetologists, Estheticians, Nail technicians and Makeup Artists are not certified in applying Eyelash Extensions. They have to take a specific Lash training course held by a reputable lash training company to get proper training and certification.

  • Do lash extensions make my own lashes fall out?

    No, if lash extensions are done properly without sticking lashes together then it should not make your own lashes fall out. It is extremely important to have your lash extensions applied by a qualified and well trained lash technician who uses only quality products. Once in a while It is normal to experience a few lashes falling out together with the extensions. The eyelash has a life cycle that is constantly being replaced just like the hair on your head. That is why you always experience some lashes falling on your face and pillows. When the natural lashes fall out at the end of the lash cycle, you might see some extensions are still attached to the natural lashes. New lashes will also grow out to start a new lash cycle. When you come in for a refill, the lash technician will fill in these new strong lashes to make the extension lashes full again.

  • How long do lash extensions last?

    It is recommended that you should come in for a refill every 2-3 weeks for Classic lashes and 3-4 weeks for Volume lashes. The natural growth cycle of your lashes is about 6-8 weeks. With proper after care, lash extensions should last about 4-5 weeks. To ensure that your lashes last for a long time, you should avoid from wetting your lashes for 24 hours following the lash application.

  • How you can shorten the life of the lash extensions?
    • Wetting lashes less than 24hrs after your lash application
    • Applying mascara
    • Exposing your extension lashes to excess heat and steam
    • Sweating excessively
    • Crying
    • Excessive rubbing of your eyes
    • Seasonal allergies
    • Changes in hormone levels
    • Increased stress
    • Washing your face and lashes with cleansers containing glycol or oily products,
    • Rubbing your face with towel or washcloth
    • Sleeping on your face
    • Applying creamy and oily lotion near your extension lashes.
  • How often should I get a refill?

    The extensions may fall out faster if one uses oil-based eye makeup remover as oil will weakens the bond between the glue and the lash. Eyelash extensions should last for approximately 3-4 weeks with their natural growth and shedding cycle. To keep the eyelashes full, one must maintain them by refilling every 2-3 weeks for classic lashes and 4-5 weeks for volume lashes depending on how full the lash extension set are made.

    Eyelash extensions are waterproof and give the appearance of having mascara on without the messy clumps and smudging of makeup. To keep your eyelashes maintained, one should not rub on their eyes or wear any mascara. Instead, you should use oil-free make up removal wipes, eyelid cleanser, and avoid rubbing around the eye area

  • How long is the lash application process?

    The application process for a full set of classic lash extensions takes about 1 and a half to 2.5 hours. Volume lashes takes about 2 to 3 hours. A 2 week classic refill should take about 1-1.5 hours, and a volume lash refill takes about 1.5-2 hours.

  • What do I need to do Before I come in for my lash appointment?
    • You should always come in with very clean lashes without mascara or make up residues. The cleaner your lashes when you come in, the longer your lashes will last.
    • It’s better not to wear any eye makeup to your lash appointment.
    • You should avoid coming in right after your intensive exercise or work out because the sweat and the oil secretion from your oil glands will trap between your lashes which make it very tough for the lash technician to clean between every single lashes.
    • A nice shower before the lash appointment with clean water running through the lashes to filter out all the debris and dead skin is recommended for long lasting lash extensions.
    • Remember: the longer it takes to clean your makeup and mascara off your lashes the less time is available for applying lashes.
    • Be prepared to not be able to wash your hair for 24 hours (most clients wash their hair right before their lash appointment.)
    • Bring headphones for your phone or music player for you to relax during the procedure.
    • Also, please do not get Botox or any kind of cosmetic procedures the day of your lash appointment. You might not be allowed to lie down for about 3-4 hours after having Botox or similar fillers applied to your face.
  • What do I need to know after my lash appointment?

    We recommend waiting 24 hours before wetting your lashes. Wetting them before 24 hours could cause the glue to reactivate and clump the lashes together and your extension lashes will fall off faster

    • Do not touch, wet or steam your lashes for 24 hours.
    • Avoid hot steam or sauna (this will straighten out the curl of your extension lashes)
    • Do not rub your eyes
    • Do not use eyelash curler
    • Do not use mascara
    • If applying water based mascara, apply only from middle to tip, avoid root area
    • Use water based eye makeup remover
    • Do not use creamy or oily products
    • Do not pull on your lashes if it became loose (this may cause your natural lashes to come out prematurely)
    • Do schedule for a touchup every 2-3 weeks apart.
  • Can I wear Mascara?

    Mascara is not recommended. It will lessen the life of your extensions. If you do apply mascara, it must not be waterproof or oil based. You must use water based mascara. There are special mascaras that are safe for your lash extensions. If you wear mascara, you should only apply it to the tips of the lashes; applying it close to the roots will weaken the lash glue and may cause you to rip out your lashes.

  • Can I curl my lashes?

    Non Mechanical lash curlers are not recommended. They will damage the extensions and possibly your natural lashes.

  • How do I clean my lashes?

    Use a Lash cleanser to clean your lashes 1-2 times a day. Keep your lashes clean in order to prevent blepharitis and other eye infections

    Cleaning your lash extensions will make your lash extensions last longer and keep your lashes healthy.

    Step 1- Wash your hands

    Step 2- Pump a drop or two of lash cleanser onto a clean (soft) eyeshadow brush (or your fingers if you are gentle)

    Step 3- Close one eye and gently cleanse your lash with the eyeshadow brush using downward strokes (from lash root down to lash tip)

    Step 4- Rinse cleanser completely using saline solution (contact lens solution - any brand will work) Place a clean wash cloth on your cheek (to catch liquid fallout)

    Step 5- let lashes air dry

    Step 6- use clean mascara brush to brush lashes. (Be careful not to over brush your lashes as they can pull your extensions out!)

  • How lash application are done?
    • The lash technician will cleanse and prime your lashes to make sure that your lashes are completely clean of any eye makeup, debris and protein build ups.
    • Then, gel pads are applied to the under eye area to cover the lower lashes and separate them from the upper lashes. This process will prevent the upper and lower lashes from sticking together when you open your eyes.
    • The lash extensions will be applied to each individual eyelash using two lash tweezers. One tweezer is used to separate each of your natural lashes in order to isolate one single lash, the other tweezer is used to pick up a single lash extension or multiple fanned lashes if performing volume lash.
    • The extension lashes are slightly dipped it into the lash adhesive then are placed on top of the isolated lash. This procedure will be repeated alternatively from eye to eye until both eyes are completed.
    • Next a small fan is used to dry your lashes to eliminate the fumes before you open your eyes.
  • Are there different types of lash extensions?
    • Temporary false lashes are also known as Strip, Clusters or Flare lashes. They are designed to be worn for no more than one day. They are applied with lash glue designed specifically for temporary lashes only. They are not designed to be worn when showering, sleeping or swimming. They are very uncomfortable because they tie the natural lashes together and attach partly on your skin.
    • Semi-permanent lashes, also known as individual eyelash extensions are applied with an adhesive made with a stronger bond. When applied properly, a single lash is applied to each natural lash. Neither the extension lash nor the glue should touch the skin on the eyelid. The adhesive is designed to last until the lashes naturally fall out. It’s normal for you to see a lash extension attached to the real lash once in a while because the extension fall out together with the natural lash at the end of the lash cycle.
  • What is the difference between classic and volume lashes?

    CLASSIC LASH EXTENSIONA method where only 1 lash extension is glued to 1 natural lash. This method is also known as 1 to 1 lash application. Classic lash extensions are perfect for clients who are already have a lot of lashes and want to add more length and thickness to resemble the mascara look. This look can vary from natural to dramatic depending on the original amount of lashes that the client have. The most common thickness used for classic lashes are .15mm and .20mm.

    VOLUME LASH EXTENSION(Also known as 3D or Russian Lashes) A method when the lash technician picks up more than one very thin extension lashes and fan out before applying to a single natural eyelash. This delicate procedure requires the lash technician to isolate one natural eyelash at a time before attaching the extensions to prevent lashes from sticking together. The end results still allow each natural lash to move individually. Volume lashes are lighter, fluffier and give the client a much fuller look. Volume lashes are perfect for clients who don't have a lot of lashes, have sparse, very thin lashes and bald spots or clients who want a more dramatic, luscious look without having to use a thicker lash. The lash extensions used in this method are significantly thinner than the lash extensions used for the classic lash method. The most common thickness used for volume lashes are .05mm, .07mm and .10mm.

    The difference between Classic Lash and Volume Lash is that when getting a classic lash set, a 0.15mm or 0.20mm lash is applied to 1 natural lash. When getting volume lashes (2 to 4) 0.07mm lashes are applied in a fan shape to 1 natural lash. Volume lashes are actually lighter than classic lashes. One (3D) Volume fan weighs less than 1 classic lash. Also, a lot less glue is used during the volume technique so your lash extensions feel very light and comfortable like your own lashes

    WARNING!It’s is very important for clients to distinguish between the Volume Lash method which (2-4) .07mm lashes are applied in a fan shape to 1 natural lash versus the “Clump” or “Cluster” lash method where a pre-made knotted fan shape lashes or chunk of lashes are glued to a bunch of your natural lashes. Because not all lashes grow at the same rate, when lashes are stick together, the faster growing baby lashes will pull out the more mature lashes. The result is the loss of many lashes.

  • What are considered bad lashes?

    This is nothing like “clump lashes” or "cluster" lashes where a chunk of lashes are glued to a bunch of your natural lashes. Cluster lashes are very bad for your natural lashes and will cause permanent damage to your natural lashes.

  • Are there different types of curl, sizes and thickness?

    Yes, there are different types of curl, sizes and thickness to choose from.

    1 - Curl Type- How curly the lash extension used will determine the look that you want.

    BELOW ARE SOME OF THE MOST POPULAR CURL LETTER CODES AND HOW TO TELL THE DIFFERENCES IN EACH:

    J-Curl: straight and very slight curl

    B-Curl: slight curl

    C-Curl: very natural curl and curls at one end

    CC-Curl: very natural curl with strong curl

    D-Curl: very strong curl and curls at both ends

    L-Curl: straight base at one end and B or D Curl at the other end

    2 - Thickness- How thick the lash extension used depends on the desired look and also how thick a client’s natural lash is when she comes in with. The selected lash extension can’t be too thick which it would weigh down the client’s natural lash and cause damage to the natural lash or make the lash extensions fall out too quickly.

    Extensions come in a variety of thicknesses ranging from .05 mm - .20 mm, with the most popular being used for Volume Lashes and very thin natural lashes are .05 mm, .06 mm, .07 mm and .10 mm. For Classic lashes the most popular thickness used are.15mm and .20mm.

    3 - Length - There are several lash lengths that are available to choose from to create a specific look. Popular extensions come in lengths ranging from 7mm to 15mm long.

  • Why can't I open my eyes during my lash appointment?

    Lash extension adhesive is safe but can have strong fumes that can irritate sensitive eyes. Opening your eyes during your lash appointment will cause you to experience a burning sensation. This may also cause your eye to tear up and your lashes will fall out faster. A result of this is burning can cause eye redness after your lash appointment up to 3 days after. If eye redness doesn't go away within 3 days please see an eye doctor.

  • Can I wet my lashes?

    Please wait 24 hours after your lash appointment before you can wet your lashes. You can wash your face and lashes, shower and go swimming after your lashes are cured for 24 hours.

    Please avoid your lashes coming into contact with extreme steam and saunas because heat will tend to straighten out the curl of your extension lashes. When washing your face use an oil-free makeup remover or facial cleanser.Use a wash cloth to carefully remove the cleanser from your face avoiding the eye area.

  • What should I do if I lose lashes?

    You can get a "refill" or touch up every 2-3 weeks to replace any fallen lashes and to fix any lashes that have grown out too much. If you wait too long to get a refill too many eyelash extensions will have fallen out and you will require a full set

  • Is it possible for clients to get allergic reactions, irritations, or infections?
    • Improper daily lash cleaning and maintenance can allow dirt to get trapped between lashes and bacteria to grow. This can cause irritations and infections.
    • It is possible for some very sensitive clients to develop an allergy to adhesives, medical tape, gel patches or extension lashes even if they have been getting eyelash extensions regularly.
    • There is no adhesive on the market that will ensure that client does not have reaction or allergy.
    • It is possible for very sensitive clients to experience an allergic reaction. This can range from a mild reaction that can be treated with Antihistamines to full blown swelling, dry, itchy, hot and weeping eyes.
    • If the client experiences any of these reactions, infections or allergies, it is advised to remove the extension lashes and have the client see their physician if necessary, to alleviate discomfort.
    • It’s recommended to perform the Skin Sensitive Pre-Test 24 hours prior to the scheduled lash application if the client suspects that she may be prone to allergic reactions.
