EYELASH FAQS

WHAT ARE EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
 

  • Eyelash Extensions are individual Synthetic material that are attached to your individually eyelashes; they are not attached to the skin.

  • Each synthetic lash is attached to an eyelash. It is a very enhancing beauty service and you DO NOT need to use any Mascara while wearing these Eyelash extensions. It is a very careful and intense service which requires skill and precision.

  • Once the eyelashes are applied they are so natural looking, it is difficult to tell (even up close) that you have extensions on.

  • Size availability ranges from short to long.


HOW LONG DO EYELASH EXTENSIONS LAST?

  • It is an individual process. We lose one Eyelash almost everyday. We also grow a new lash to replace the one that fell out.

  • These Lashes can stay on up to several months with proper care and maintenance. However, factors such as eye-lash growth, lifestyle and general aftercare will affect how long the lashes last. Please do not attempt to remove any lashes on your own, seek professional help from your technician.

DO FALSE LASH EXTENSIONS HARM NATURAL EYELASHES?
