Hello Lash Lovers,
Hopefully you will find this information helpful before you book your eyelash extension appointment.
I can customize every look to how ever you want them. I use size .07 mm Silk Volume Lashes in D curl and C curl. I can blend the two Curls and use various sizes. I have lashes from various amazing brands creating a custom look for you. I make the room perfect condition for lashes for my lashes bond in 1 second and I can do a full set of Volume lashes in 2 hours. It’s the most tedious work I offer and I love every second of it. If you're interested in becoming a lash client long term, please schedule your fills ahead of time to ensure your appointment with me.
Lash Extension FREQUENTLY asked questions
Are you a good candidate for lashes?
I can honestly say in my career I have seen some gals not great candidates for lashes. These are some of my personal lists of things that DON'T make you a good candidate:
-If you cook a lot, if you do hot yoga more then 3 times a week, if you are a face sleeper, you wear a lot of makeup, or if you have damaged lashes. Repair them, then see me, as it's very difficult to do lashes on people with damaged lashes because they are weak and inconsistent which doesn't make for a perfect set as would a healthy set of lashes.
If you don't do any of the above, then you are a great candidate for them! If you want No makeup look, or to enhance what your mama didn't give you then you are ready to book an appointment by clicking the link below.
What are the most common types of lash extensions?
There are three types of lash extensions: synthetic, silk and mink. I use Silk Volume Lashes on my Clients as well as Silk Single Lashes size availability ranges from 7mm to 15mm in a .03mm thickness. Once selected, the lashes are applied one at a time using a specially formulated, semi-permanent glue that will not irritate the eye nor damage the natural lash. However, since allergic reactions are possible, there are different types of glue based on one's sensitivity.
What are the different techniques of Eyelash Extensions?
There are two types of Techniques to do eyelash extensions. I am trained and experienced in Single-Bonded Lashes and Russian Volume Lashes. The Single Bonded lashes are done by placing 1 silk extension on 1 of your natural lashes. Ratio 1-1. The Russian Volume Lashes are done by strategically placing 5 fanned-out lashes on 1 natural lash. Ratio 5-1. If you are looking for the most natural, lights and fluffiest lashes I would suggest the Volume Lashes. I transform my Clients with these!
How long does it take to apply lash extensions?
Applying a full set of lashes takes about two hours, and can be maintained year-round with touch-ups recommended every three to four weeks. A half set of lashes are an economical alternative to achieve a similarly dramatic effect, applied as filler to thicken natural lashes, or applied outward from the eye for a specialized look.
Everyone has different lashes, and depending on the condition of your own natural lashes, lash experts can only go a certain length or thickness. (This is to ensure that your own lashes remain healthy.) For example, if your natural lashes are on the shorter, thinner side, you won't be able to get a crazy, dramatic look, because it won't last. It's better to start out with a half set (50 to 60 percent of your top lashes) if you aren't sure or it's your first time. It’s easier to add more than to remove lashes
How often do you need to get lash extensions redone?
Lash extensions last through a full growth cycle of natural eyelashes, typically six to eight weeks. That said, because each person’s lash growth is somewhat variable (just hair growth), I suggest light lash maintenance every three to four weeks to maintain a full look.
Do lash extensions fall out over a certain period of time?
Since each lash extension is attached to a single eyelash, they will fall out naturally along with the natural growth cycle of each lash. We recommend a touch-up every three to four weeks.
When an inexperienced professional applies lashes, he or she often applies one synthetic lash to three to four natural lashes, causing clumps or the lash to break and fall out. In addition, your lashes might fall out if you pick at them or try to pull them out yourself, which is a big no-no. But if you avoid those two problems, your lashes should stay intact. If you have lashes that are damaged from the current extensions you have on, I can remove them safely in the spa.
Can you shower or swim right away? Are there products you should absolutely avoid?
Keep water away from your lashes for the first 12 to 24 hours after application or touch-ups. Water can weaken the adhesive before it is set and cause lashes to fall off. The after-care varies depending on the glue used. For instance, with glue for sensitive eyes, oil-based products or makeup removers around the eye area are not recommended. Using water-proof mascara on the extensions is not recommended for any type of glue, as it is hard to remove and can actually pull off the lashes prematurely when trying to take it off.
Is it okay to also wear mascara?
If you are planning to wear mascara in addition to the extensions, only use it on the tips of the extensions and with a very light hand. This will be enough to give your eyes that "pop" along with the extensions. Using mascara at the base of the extensions will get very clumpy. I do not recommend Make-up around the eyes to ensure the longest life out of your extensions.
Will your natural lashes get harmed or damaged?
The biggest myth is that lash extensions ruin your own lashes. They do not. 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 tug or pull on the extensions because this can cause lash loss and even damage to your natural lashes. If lashes are applied properly and to each individual lash, they won’t fall out.
