What are lash extensions?
Lash Extensions are a very natural looking way to extend the length and thickness of natural eyelashes. Unlike traditional strip lashes, eyelash extensions are the first innovation in eyelash lengthening that can be worn daily, without nightly removal. Each eyelash extension is bonded to a single natural lash. The final result looks effortless and is difficult to detect even close up.
How long will my lashes last?
When properly applied lashes can be worn throughout the year. Touch-ups are recommended after the initial full set application to refill any lashes that have cycled out. To maintain the full, thick appearance of a new set of lashes we recommend coming in every 1-3 weeks depending on your natural lash cycle.
Can Lash Extensions harm natural lashes?
When applied properly, eyelash extensions will not harm natural lashes. The bonding adhesive is specifically created to work with the eyelash extension and your natural lash to create a longer, fuller look without changing the integrity of the lash. Proper removal of the lash is also extremely important! If not removed properly by a lash artist you are at risk for potential damage to your natural lash.
Can mascara be used with lash extensions?
Mascara is okay to use with Lash Extensions but it is not needed. The idea of lash extensions is to eliminate the need for mascara.
