I use (synthetic) mink eyelash extensions. Eyelash extensions are for people of all ages. They aren't your traditional fake eyelash strips, they are semi-permanent eyelash extensions. One at a time, the extensions are applied directly to your individual natural eyelashes. Extensions are extremely light weight and feel as though they are your natural eyelashes.

The difference between the sets include the amount/volume of extensions applied. A partial set has an extension applied to every 3rd natural lash. A natural set has an extension applied to every 2nd natural lash. A glamour set has an extension applied to every single natural lash.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
For Best Result:
Arrive to your appointment without ANY eye makeup. Do not curl your lashes or wear mascara the day before and the day of your appointment. This will minimize the 'cleanup' time for applying the extensions.
How Long Do They Last?
On the average person, the eyelash extensions will 'look good' for approximately 2 weeks before requiring a touch up (fill). If you do not touch up at this time, they will continue to shed and completely fall off by 3-5 weeks. These are averages only. Some people experience a much better retention rate, while others fair very poorly. Factors include the strength and texture of your natural lash, your lifestyle, and the way you care for your eyelash extensions. Remember that your natural lashes have their own life cycle of falling out and growing - like the hair found elsewhere on your body.
Do Lash Extensions Cause Your Natural Lashes To Fall Out?
The application of lash extensions, when applied properly by a trained professional, will not cause hair loss, nor will it cause eyelashes to fall out. Remember that your natural lashes have their own life cycle of falling and growing - like the hair elsewhere on your body. It's hard to notice small lashes falling out, but when attached to a thicker, longer lash, they become much more noticeable. Once the extensions are removed, your own eyes may appear smaller, your natural lashes, shorter and more sparse because you've been accustomed to a full set of longer, thicker lashes.
How Should I Care For My Lashes?
For the first 24 hours, do not get your lashes wet. Avoid the shower, steam rooms, massages and facials, tanning, and sweaty workouts. You can wash your face, however, use a face cloth to rinse around the eye area.
No curling your lashes, no waterproof mascara, no smushing your face on your pillow, and no eye masks. Use a face cloth to wash your face (instead of splashing) - also great for a gentle daily exfoliation. Avoid the direct spray in the shower. They're waterproof but not jet-spray-in-your-face-proof. Use a headband when hitting the gym or working up a sweat. This will prevent sweat from dripping into your eyes. You can exercise as usual, however please note the bond of the extensions weaken with excessive sweat and oils, therefore those who engage in high cardio workouts as well as hot yoga will notice a compromise in the life of the extensions.
Are There Any Risks Associated With Lash Extensions?
As with any product on the market, there is a very small chance of an allergic reaction (less than 1%). With a true allergic reaction, swelling of the eyes will occur within the first 48 hours. Please contact me immediately should this happen and I will remove the extensions for you ASAP. Once removed, the swelling will dissipate withing a few days, and your eye will be back to normal without any damage to either your eyes or lashes.
Who Should Not Wear Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash extensions may not be suitable for people who:
- Have pre-existing eyelid or eye conditions such as Blepharitis and Ocular Rosacea.
- Are very rough with themselves and do not want to follow after care instructions.
- Want a very heavy mascara look but do not have the natural lashes to support it.
- Have a condition called Trichotillomania, which is hair loss resulting from compulsive pulling or twisting of the hair, brows, or in this case, eyelashes.
- Are in chlorinated water many times a week.
- Cannot control rubbing their eyes.
