Eyelash Extension/Eyelash Care

What are eyelash extensions?

Eyelash extensions are false lashes that are individually applied to your natural lashes to make them longer and/or thicker.

 

What are they made of?

They are made of several different materials including silk, mink, or synthetic material, which are applied using an adhesive.

 

How long does it take?

The process can take anywhere between 30 min to 2 hours depending on how much you wish to be applied.

How long do they last?

The extensions can last up to six weeks, depending on how well they are taken care of. 

Can I wear makeup?

Mascara is not recommended as this will weigh down the lashes and cause clumping. We only recommend using water based eyeliner. Avoid oil based eyeliner as this could compromise the adhesive.

Before Treatment:

No Mascara on your eyelashes. Extension won't be able to stay on your lashes if your lashes are not clean

After Care:

For the first 48 hours and long term care of your lashes please:

  • Do not allow lashes to get wet, at least the first 24 hours.

  • Avoid steam - so no spas, saunas, hot tubs, hot yoga, or cooking in a steamy kitchen. Steam will affect the adhesive from bonding properly.

  • Do not swim. 

  • Do not rub, perm, or tint your lashes before or after lash extension application.

  • Do not rub your eyes or lashes when washing your face - clean around the eye with a washcloth, or Q tip, or micro-brush.

  • Do not pull on your lash extensions, as you're likely to pull out your natural lash with it.

  • Do not use mascara on your lashes, other than the one recommenced by your technician.

  • Do not use a waxy, greasy, or oil based eyeliner or eye shadow during and beyond the first 48 hours, this compromises the adhesive and will result in lash extension loss. 

  • Do not remove the extensions on your own.

  • Do not cut your extension. You risk cutting your own lashes and altering the natural appearance of the lash extensions.

  • Brush your lashes as need but not too often.
