How do lash extensions work?
Each extension is applied to one donor lash (your natural lash), at a distance close to the base of the lashes, but never touching the skin. This process is repeated until the majority of lashes have been filled. We are careful choose the proper thickness and length of each extension to ensure that they sit comfortably on each unique lash. The overall experience is very peaceful and relaxing. Some clients even fall asleep!
What products do you use?
The only extensions used are synthetic mink and silk, which are the highest quality vegan lashes on the market. We carry a variety of lash lengths, curls, and thicknesses to suit every client's needs. These lashes are waterproof and remain perfectly curled. Only safe, medical grade glue is used. The results are lightweight, comfortable lashes with absolutely no irritation.
How can I prepare myself?
Clients should come in with all eye makeup thoroughly removed. No skincare products should be applied around the eye area, or else the lash adhesive will not bond. Lashes should be in their natural state, not permed or curled. Contact lenses should also be removed for maximum comfort.
How do I take care of my new lashes?
For aftercare, clients should avoid getting lashes wet for the first 24 hours. This means avoiding swimming, saunas, and steam rooms. The best way to wash the face during this time is with a damp cloth/towel or alcohol-free wipes.
Lashes will last longest for clients who do not use oil-based products around the eye area. This applies to creams, makeup removers, eyeshadows and eyeliners. Products with glycol, alcohol, and ethanol should be avoided. Skincare with acidic ingredients such as alpha/beta hydroxy acids should also be avoided around the lash and eyelid area because they will break down the adhesive.
Clients should not rub or pull on lashes, and are advised not to use mascara or lash curlers. Last but not least, it is essential to clean your lashes with a mild, oil-free cleanser. Baby shampoo works perfectly, and we recommend gently massaging the cleanser onto the lashes with two fingers. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry.
