What are lash extensions?
Lash extensions are a semi permanent enhancement of your natural
lashes isolating each natural lash and adhering an extension to the
natural lash. one by one. Lash extensions take 1-2 hours to apply. your
eyes are closed the whole time, while lying down its actually very
relaxing and most of my clients fall asleep, snoring is allowed. your
bottom lashes are taped down with a special tape or gel eye pad
whichever you prefer.
How often is a touch up?
A Touch up is every 2-4 weeks. The extension sheds with the life cycle
of the natural lash. A touch up fills in the new growth.
Will the lash adhesive damage my natural lashes?
No. Improper application and improper client aftercare can damage the
natural lash. It is very important to go to a certified lash artist who
does lashes all day everyday. Lash extensions is a tedious process and
requires a lot of practice. proper client aftercare is just as important.
With lash extensions you do not want to sleep on your lashes,
or rub your eyes. keeping them clean with an antibacterial lash
cleanser is extremely important.
it is best to not use mascara this adds extra weight to the lash and is
difficult to remove.
What should I do before my appointment?
You will want to arrive makeup free, if you can skip the moisturizer.
Sterilid is a great lash cleanser that can be found at cvs or walgreens.
if you wear contacts bring your case or glasses. make sure your
lashes are clean!
What is my aftercare?
use oil free products on your face. oil will break down the bond of
your lashes. oil free eye makeup remover, a concealor brush works
great to remove eye makeup and to cleanse the lash. Dont sleep on
your lashes, this will tear out your natural lashes. I have a special
mask just for this to sleep in. dont rub your eyes.
