Frequently Asked Questions about Eye Lash Extensions

1) How to prepare for your appointment?

We recommend having your shower or bath prior to coming. We want the glue to have a good 24 to 48 hour set time without getting wet. Come in with your eye’s make-up free. You will also want to invest in an oil free make-up remover.

2) What do lash extensions feel like?

Our lash extensions should feel weightless and natural. We bring in a variety of curl and lengths to provide a look that is tailored to your preference. For more natural looks, we do not recommend lash extensions more than double the length of your natural lash.

3) How long do lash extensions last?

Lash extensions grow with your natural lash cycle. We recommend a fill every 3-4 weeks. For those of you who want to keep a consistent look we offer a 30 minute fill every 2 weeks.

4) Is any harm done to my natural lashes?

Our lash technicians are certified, no harm will occur to your natural lashes. We use a medical grade, formaldehyde free glue.

5) Can I apply mascara?

Yes, but you won’t need to! We recommend using products that are glycol and carbonate free as these ingredients can affect the integrity of the bond. Try our YoungBlood mineral make-up line with added ingredients to heal and protect your skin.

6) Can I shower, swim, steam?

We recommend 24-48 hours of keeping your lashes dry, after your appointment. Then you are free to dive away. We do caution that with repetitive steam, hot tubs and sauna’s the glue bond and your lashes may not last as long

7) What is the suggested maintenance?

We offer a wonderful after care line of lash conditioner. We recommend combing your lashes when you see them out of line. Less is more when it comes to care. Never rub your eyes, but pat your lashes dry.

8) Walk me through a lash appointment.

At each appointment, we will discuss with you your desired look. We have 3 looks: Au Natural (60 min.), Glamor (90 min.) and VaVoom (120 min.) You are welcome to bring along any material you believe will help describe your desired look. Once we understand the look you desire, you will be comfortably reclined onto our massage bed. If you wear contacts, at this time we will ask you to take them out. With your eyes closed, we apply an eye-gel pad to cover your lower lashes, we then begin applying the individual eyelashes. The procedure is strictly pain-free and we find, more often than not, guest end up dozing off through most of the appointment.
