All about lash Extensions
What Are Lash Extensions?
Thinking about getting Lash Extensions, but still have some questions about what they are and how they work?
Well, here is some information to put your mind at ease and start your adventure with gorgeous long lashes to glam up your everyday look!
Lash extensions use real Mink hair, that is safely trimmed from the mink. They are not harmed in any way by getting this hair! These are glued to each individual eyelash for that beautiful glamorous everyday look with so little effort!
How Are They Applied?
During the application process, an individual eyelash will be isolated with tweezers, the extension will be dipped into a medical grade adhesive and applied to one of your natural eyelash. This process is repeated until the application is complete.
How To Prepare For Your Lash Appointment?
Your eyelashes should be clear of any makeup. We will also cleanse them upon arrival. Your bottom lashes will be protected with an eyepatch to expose your upper lash line for a precision application.
When Do You Need A Refill?
There are between 90-120 natural lashes per upper lid. Each eye sheds 2-3 lashes a day.
So, in 1 week you may lose an average of 21 lashes. So, this means every 2 weeks = 42 lashes lost, every 3 weeks = 63 lashes lost. We recommend lash fills should be done at least every 3 weeks to keep that full fresh look!
How to care for your eyelash extension?
- After your apptointment, avoid washing your face with hot water, using a steam bath, sauna or swimming for 24 hours.
- Stay away from oil based makeup remover and cosmetics (oils break down the adhesive)
- Extensions are extremely low-maintenance, just comb through with a clean mascara wand, and prepare to turn heads.
- Protect your extensions a couple of times a week with a swipe of longer life sealant, an alternative to mascara for a longer life of your extension!
