Eyelash extensions are the art of applying semi permanent synthetic lashes that are hand-glued on to your natural lashes. Each lash is glued on individually, so unlike strip lashes, they're super customizable and actually look real.
Lash extensions are an extension of your beauty and confidence everyday!
Lash options range in a variety of lengths, curls and thicknesses to achieve a perfectly
customized and flawless look. Lashes offer the ability to go from a very natural look or a lot
of added drama - it's up to you!
Once applied, your new lash extensions will last indefinitely with touch-ups every 2-4 weeks.
Lash Extension Types & Styles
Classic eyelash extensions are - as their namesake - classic. They are simple, beautiful, natural looking lash extensions. They are applied on a 1:1 ratio, one lash extension onto
one natural eyelash. Classic lashes create the illusion of a flawless coat of mascara on naturally long, curled and voluminous lashes.
They are meant to provide length, shape, and darken, not fullness or added fluff. Most people wear classic lashes because they want to achieve a natural lash look that is often mistaken for having AH-MAZING natural eyelashes.
If you want to achieve a “no-extensions-look” then classics are the style for you!
HYBRID MIX LASHES:
Hybrid lash extensions are exactly how they sound. A mix (or hybrid) of two styles. More
specifically, hybrid lashes are a mixture of Classic (1 extension per lash) and Volume lashes
(consisting of 3-5 lashes), giving you the best of both worlds!
This look will give you more texture and fluff for a naturally bolder look.
This style is perfect for people who want a more full look than classics, but aren’t completely
sold on the bold and dark look of volume lash extensions.
Volume lashes is a technique in which multiple lash extensions are fanned out and applied to one natural lash (one to many). This technique offers you a full and fluffy look for some serious glamour and drama!
Russian Volume is the most commonly known name, due to the fact that this technique
was invented by Russian technicians. But there are multiple different volume types and styles including wispy, strip lash, wet look, american and mega volume. It is also known as 2D - 6D lashes, meaning the amount of lashes in a fan. Volume eyelash extensions allow for a great level of customization to achieve the client’s desired look, from light and fluffy,
to big and bold. Fans are made from finer, lighter eyelash extensions so are safe
to apply on a single lash.
Volume is for anyone looking for a fuller more dramatic effect, or those with sparse, very short or fine eyelashes.
This lash technique is the most popular lash extension application!
Va-va-volume! These babies will give you a thick, dark and fluffy lash look!
Mega Volume method is the lightest lash to make a fan with up to 16-20 lash extensions. Bold and beautiful lashes which definitely lives up to its “Mega” name, and creates a denser and darker look for super full and glamorous looking lashes.
You might want Kardashian-level lashes, but that doesn’t mean your eyes can handle them. The type of lashes you can get all depends on the length and strength of your natural lashes. Wearing lashes that are too long or too thick for your lashes can actually cause damage in the long run, so you need to make sure your extensions aren’t too much longer or thicker than your natural lashes.
When it comes to density, curl, and length of your extensions, I'll work with you to figure out which is the best option for you. I take your face, eye shape, and natural lashes into consideration when helping you decide on a lash look to best compliment you.
Frequently Asked Questions About Eyelash Extensions
HOW LONG DO EYELASH EXTENSIONS LAST?
With proper care (see lash aftercare), and depending on how compatible they are with your skin's pH. Eyelash extensions can last through a full growth cycle up to 8 weeks until they naturally fall out like your lashes usually do. Due to the growth of your lashes and to maintain a nice full look, it is recommended to get fills every 3-4 weeks. So, technically, you can make your extensions last indefinitely.
WILL EXTENSIONS DAMAGE MY NATURAL LASHES?
Lash extensions will not damage your natural lashes. Do make sure not to rub or pull out your lashes, as this can cause irritation and damage to the hair follicles.
While keeping the development cycle of eyelashes in mind during the application process, lash artists are trained to search for fully grown eyelashes which they can connect with the synthetic ones. The smaller lashes are left to develop on their own. At the next refill, we will have a new lash grown, on which to apply your extensions.
Eyelash Extensions won’t make your natural eyelashes fall out. Keep in mind that your natural eyelashes have a life cycle of growing and shedding like the hair found on the rest of your body. It’s difficult to see little eyelashes falling out. However, when attached to a thicker, longer lash they are much more noticeable to see.
CAN I GET MY LASHES WET?
You can, but not until you’ve waited at least 24 hours after your appointment. Eyelash adhesives vary in the time they take to cure, between 2-24 hours depending on adhesive used. It’s super important that you’re gentle with your lashes and make sure that no water touches them during this time. You can shower after getting lashes as long as you don’t get the lashes wet and don’t stay in the steam for too long.
CAN AND HOW DO YOU WASH YOUR EYES WITH EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
Of course! You must wash your lashes and eye area to keep your lashes clean and healthy. This also ensures lasting lashes. Just be sure to only use cleansers specifically formulated to be safe for eyelash extensions. Other products may contain ingredients that can weaken the bond of the lash adhesive and cause them to shed prematurely. If you wear eye makeup, use oil-free products and remove by gently swiping downwards, rather than back and forth, with a lint free pad or your fingers, to get your lids and lashes clean. And whatever you do, avoid rubbing or tugging at your eyes.
CAN I WEAR MAKEUP TO MY EYELASH APPOINTMENT?
Nope. You’ll want to show up to your appointment with clean skin and no eye makeup. That means absolutely no eyeshadow, eyeliner, and/or mascara. Anything on your lids or lashes could affect how your extensions turn out, so definitely make sure to wash your face beforehand.
CAN I PUT MASCARA ON MY EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
It's not recommended to use mascara with lash extensions. Why? Because when you attempt to take it off at the end of the day, you can actually cause your extensions to break from the friction and makeup remover. If you do decide to wear mascara, do not use waterproof mascara and make sure it is oil-free. As for eyeliner, avoid using cream-based formulas. They often contain oils and waxes that can break down lash glue.
