How long will it take to apply Eyelash Extensions?
The application process for lash extensions will depend on the number of lashes being applied and condition of your lashes, it generally takes 60 minutes to apply a Natural Mascara Look. If you want more fullness just book a touch up appointment sooner. You can listen to music through headphones during the procedure.
Can you describe the lash application process?
The lash application process is safe, painless and relaxing. Your Lash Stylist will consult with you to determine the look you desire. Lash extensions are available in various types of length, thickness and curvature. You will lay comfortably on a massage table with your eyes closed. During this time, you must remember to keep your eyes closed and still at all times. This allows for the lashes to be applied correctly and prevent any eye discomfort. Feel free to use the time to rest and take a beauty nap. The Lash Stylist will then apply an under-eye gel pad to cover your lower lashes (see above picture). Lastly, eyelash extensions are then applied to your natural lashes one at a time with medical-grade adhesive.
Could the adhesive enter my eye?
When your eyes are closed and still, the adhesive will not enter your eyes. However, if you open your eyes during the application process, your eyes can feel irritated from the fumes of the adhesive. Before having your lashes done, you are given written instructions on what you can and cannot do during the lash application process. This includes refraining from making any facial movements, talking, texting (reading/writing), chewing gum and answering phone calls. All of these actions can involuntary open your eyes causing eye irritation and delay the lash application process. If you need to stop or feel any discomfort, please notify your Lash Stylist immediately.
Why do you apply a gel pads or tape under my eye?
Gel pads and tape are used depending on what your Lash Stylist decides will fit your eyes better. The purpose of gel pads and tape is to help keep the bottom lashes covered and to allow the Lash Stylist to see your top lashes better.
Some clients prefer anti-wrinkle pads and those clients can bring them at their own risk. However, please know that the salon is not responsible if an allergic reaction occurs.
We do not recommend anti-wrinkle pads during the procedure because they can cause allergic reactions when introduce with everyday make up and creams.

Your Lash Stylist will evaluate your lashes and desire look, we have a variety of lengths, thickness and curl but not everyone's lashes are the same, need to customize each look.

How long do lash extensions last?
The look can be maintained indefinitely with touch-up every 2-4 weeks. When properly applied, Eyelash Extensions will remain in place until the natural lash on which it rests falls out. Natural lashes grow in and fall out in cycles (every 6 to 8 weeks). Please note that this is a perfectly normal occurrence, with or without extensions. See Natural Growth.
How long is a touch-up?
Lash touch-ups are done every 2-4 weeks and take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. Be gentle with your lashes; do not pull on the extensions or rub the eyes excessively. Constant application of heavy eye makeup, particularly mascara and eyeliner, may reduce the lifespan of your Lashes and require more frequent touch-ups. If you sleep on your stomach or side, you will notice that the eye that is on the side they sleep on will lose lashes a bit more than the side that is up. You can purchase a satin pillow case or a travel pillow to help you sleep in a better position.
Who cannot or should not have eyelash extensions applied?
Eyelash Extensions are applied to existing natural lashes; clients must have some natural lashes for the procedure. Lash Extensions should not, and in many cases cannot, be applied to clients who have alopecia, are undergoing chemotherapy or those who suffer from Trichotillomania, unless and until the individual has received effective treatment and normal lash growth has resumed. Eyelash Extensions are not for everyone specially if you have very few and your lashed are very short and/or thin and desiring an extreme/dramatic mascara look that you received by adding a strip or cluster lashes.
