FAQ

WHAT ARE SEMI-PERMANENT EYELASH EXTENSIONS YOU USE?

We use a range of all eyelash extensions, including: Synthetic Mink Lashes, silk lashes, and 100% Siberian Mink Lashes. All of them enhance the beauty of the natural eye in different ways. Eyelash extensions can be applied to look as natural or dramatic as you would like.

SOME SALONS CHARGE VERY LOW PRICE FOR EYELASH EXTENSIONS, WHY?

Low price can mean:

  • Cheap poor quality products are being used;

  • Beautician doesn't spend enough time for the treatment and puts less lashes on your eyes;

  • Beautician has recently qualified and doesn't have enough work experience.

HOW LONG DOES THE APPLICATION TAKE?

Eyelash extensions are a relaxing process, taking an average of 1-2 HOURS for a full set.  Extension refills/infill are 40-75 minutes.

HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?

Eyelash extensions last an average of 5-6 weeks, if properly cared for. To have your eyelash extensions always looking their best Refills are recommended 2-3 weeks from the initial application.

(It is normal to loose about 1-5 lashes on the daily but the better you take care of them the better they will last!)

HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF THESE LASHES

No water contact for 24 hours after they are applied

No oil based makeup removers or products on the lashes or around the eyes.

CAN I CONTINUE WITH MY DAY-TO-DAY ACTIVITIES?

YES! After 24 hours you can go swimming with your extensions, work out, and do normal everyday activity. It is good to get water on them daily so the dirt, dead skin cells and oil buildup don’t accumulate.

ARE THERE DIFFERENT LENGTHS OF EYELASH EXTENSIONS?

Yes, we have a variety of eyelash extensions lengths (7mm to 17mm), thicknesses (0,06mm, 0.07mm, 0.12mm, 0.15mm, 0.25mm) and shapes (B, C, D). We customize a look that works perfect for you!

Does it damage my natural lash?

No, as long as the correct after care is followed. The lash extensions are bonded directly onto the natural lash 1mm from the base so it doesn’t touch the skin. This means it does not interfere with the natural lash cycle allowing it to grow and fall out as normal.

Is the Adhesive safe?

Yes, it is specially formulated for use around the eye area. Eyelash adhesives are cyanoacrylate based, medical grade and they are formaldehyde, gluten, paragon and latex free. Your eyes remain closed throughout the procedure and the adhesive is only applied to the natural lash and doesn’t touch the skin.

Is it easy to remove?

Yes. They can be removed easily for you by our lash techs, However you must not attempt to remove them yourself as it may cause damage to the natural lashes if the correct procedure is not followed.

Are Strip lashes easy to apply?

You will need tweezers, a mirror and with a little practice, they’re really easy to apply!  

Can I reuse my strip lashes ?

Yes. They can be reused if removed and cared for properly. 100% mink lashes can be reused 20-30 times, be sure to gently remove any old glue that might be left on the band of the strip. Gently removing the glue will allow for a better bond the next time they are applied. To maintain the lash shape, be sure to store the strip lashes in the box they came in.

What if I am sensitive or have irritations?

Remove the lashes immediately and the irritation should stop. Flush the eye with water if necessary. Our lashes do not contain latex.

Which lash style is best for me?

The lash style you pick depends on the shape of your eyes, your mood and the occasion.
