WHAT ARE EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent synthetic fibers used to create more volume while lengthening and extending the natural eyelashes. Classic Eyelash Extensions - one single extension is placed on one natural eyelash. Volume Eyelash Extensions - customized hand made fans are designed and made for each natural eyelash and applied one by one to each individual natural lash
HOW LONG DO EYELASH EXTENSIONS LAST?
This will depend on several factors, the biggest one is how well you maintain your lashes. To maintain your lashes fill appointments are necessary every 2 to 4 weeks to replace the lashes that have shed or outgrown naturally. We always advise that after the initial set of extensions a fill should be done at 2 weeks as they may have lost or shed more than normal due to the time of their shed cycle.
WHAT ARE THEY MADE OF AND ARE THEY SAFE?
Eyelash extensions are made of a premium synthetic material called PBT. (Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT). PBT is a synthetic semi-crystalline engineered thermoplastic or is a thermoplastic engineering polymer. All lashes, whether they are called Synthetic Mink, Synthetic Silk, Supermink, etc... are made of this material. Is the adhesive safe? Yes! I use a latex free and formaldehyde free adhesive ➢Low fumes ➢Long hold time of up to 8 weeks ➢2 second bond time
WILL EXTENSIONS HURT MY NATURAL LASHES?
Since the extensions are applied to your existing natural lashes, away from the base and don’t touch the skin, the natural lash is not harmed. The eyelash extensions do not force the natural lash to shed or break unless improperly applied or an extension that is too heavy for the natural lash is used.
WILL I BE ABLE TO FEEL THEM AND CAN I WEAR MAKEUP?
The extensions are placed 1 millimeter away from the base of the natural eyelashes, therefore you won’t be able to feel the extensions.
Mascara and Eyeliner are not recommended as the oils can break down the bonds of the adhesive. If you are wearing eyeshadows or liners, proper cleansing is imperative.
HOW LONG DOES THE APPLICATION TAKE?
A full set can take anywhere from 1.5 hours - 4 hours. This will depend on the type of lashing being applied, the experience of the professional and how many lashes a client has.
