What Exactly are Eyelash Extensions?

Lash extensions are semi-permanent synthetic, faux mink or silk fibers which are applied strand by strand to your natural lashes. As you might expect, the application is fairly tedious. The extensions are carefully applied one at a time using a specially-formulated, semi-permanent adhesive that will not irritate or damage the natural lash. Unlike false eyelashes, where the strip or individual lashes are applied to the skin, lash extensions are attached directly to the lash hair itself. The results are more lush, dense and longer lashes.

*Do Eyelash Extensions Look Natural?

The final look is meant to enhance your natural lashes with more length, fullness, and lift. Whether that look is more dramatic or more natural is up to you, but generally, the more lashes applied, the more dramatic the effect. A typical application involves anywhere from 80-140 individual extensions per eye, with lashes ranging in length from 8-14mm. It’s not one size fits all. If you have damaged lashes, or naturally weak, short natural lashes, it’s not always possible to get a more dramatic look that someone with stronger, thicker lashes can achieve.

*How Long Does the Process Take?

Expect the treatment to take one to two hours, depending on your desired look. You can use it as an excuse to lie down, relax, and take a forced break from your phone. Our lash technicians take their time. Safety is one of our main  concerns. We are all licensed estheticians and cosmetologists and certified to apply extensions.

*How Long Do Extensions Last?

Because extensions are attached to the lash itself, they last as long as the natural growth cycle, or up to six weeks. To extend the life of the extensions gently comb through your lashes with a dry spoolie brush which we supply for you. We recommend getting touch ups every two to three weeks to fill in any sparse areas.
