Classic extensions are designed to mimic your natural lashes; its profile features a tapered tip with a thicker base to resemble the look and feel of a natural lash. The luxurious realistic look of eyelash extensions is achieved by a meticulous and artful application of synthetic lashes, all applied one by one to each individual natural lash. 75-95 lashes per eye are applied; appointments last up to 150 mins.
Instead of one lash per natural lash, 2-6 lashes are applied to each of your lashes. The lash extensions used in this method are significantly thinner than the lash extensions used for the classic lash method. Volume lashes are lighter, fluffier and result in a more lush look. Volume lashes are prefect for clients who don’t have a lot of lashes, have sparse lashes, bald spots or just want a more dramatic look without having to use a thicker lash.
What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent application comprised of individual synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. Our lashes are thicker at the base and taper to a fine point. They are adhered to individual eyelashes, one extension at a time, for a natural, elegant look, lengthening and adding fullness to the existing lashes. Eyelash extensions are for professional application only. Self-application and application by untrained individuals is strongly discouraged.
What are eyelash extensions made out of?
Eyelash extensions are 100% vegan and crafted from polyester. Synthetic lashes respond better to wear and tear than natural materials. In addition, synthetics have the least possible chance of causing allergic reactions in human skin. Testing has shown that people have a higher incidence of adverse reactions to natural fiber lash extensions created from animal hairs, such as mink.
What do they look like and how do they feel?
With proper application, eyelash extensions look and feel completely real. Each application is customized to suit the individual. We offer three thicknesses of lashes and four different curls with lengths ranging from 5mm to 17mm in a variety of colors for highlighting effects. Varying lash lengths are chosen to carefully replicate the shape and frame of a natural lash line. The thickness of the eyelash extensions applied is determined by the health and thickness of your natural lashes as well as personal preference. The overall effect is added curl, thickness and length, accentuating the eye for added drama.
Eyelash extensions are designed to be indistinguishable in size and weight to human lashes. They are flexible yet crimp-resistant, and they move with your natural lashes. As long as you keep up with the touch-up applications, it is almost impossible to tell that you are wearing the extensions.
Because an eyelash extension is an exact replica of an eyelash, it weighs about as much as a natural lash: practically nothing. You will not notice the addition of the extensions to your lashes and they will not cause your natural lashes to fall out ahead of their natural cycle as other enhancement methods can. Please review our client testimonials and before/after pictures for additional information on the look and feel of eyelash extensions.
What are the benefits of wearing eyelash extensions?
Most women choose eyelash extensions to lengthen their natural lashes or to make their lashes look fuller. Some very light-complected women with naturally light colored lashes choose eyelash extensions to darken and emphasize their existing lashes. Still others love the different, fun looks they can achieve with highlighting and layering.
Eyelash Extensions can create a younger appearance on many clients. Several consumers who were contemplating having work done on their faces have informed us that they no longer feel the need as a result of wearing eyelash extensions. Eyelash extensions create the appearance of a brighter, more open and rested eye, thereby creating a more youthful and rejuvenated look.
Above all, the main advantage of eyelash extensions is how much time you can save during your beauty regimen. Eyelash extensions allow you to spend less time with makeup; mascara is certainly no longer necessary. Because our lashes are bigger at the base, they create the same effect as eyeliner so that step can be avoided as well. Overall, Eyelash Extensions will give you the appearance of having put significant effort into your eye makeup when, in reality, you spent no time at all. No application of eye makeup and no need for removal at the end of the day. The added benefit is that they look beautiful morning and night, all day, every day. Say goodbye to the application of mascara, stained tears and mascara raccoon masks around the eyes. With eyelash extensions you can look and feel gorgeous from the moment you wake up until the moment you fall asleep with no effort.
How long do eyelash extensions last? How long does the procedure take?
Depending on the expertise and experience of the lash stylist and the number of lashes being applied, it generally takes between 120 to 150 minutes to apply a full set of lash extensions. Touch-ups can be done in as little as 45 to 60 minutes.
Can you describe the application process?
You will be comfortably reclined with your eyes closed while eyelash extensions are applied one at a time to your own natural eyelashes. There is no discomfort or pain involved in the procedure. In fact, some clients find it is so relaxing and comfortable that they fall asleep.
As stylists, we will do the best that we can to ensure longevity of your lashes. However, how well you take care of your lashes at home is also a factor to how long your extensions last.
- Do not get your lash extensions wet for at least 24 hours after getting them applied.
- Do not use oil-based products around your eye area; oils is a solvent for the adhesive.
- Brush your lashes. Your lashes are just like the hair on your hair, they need to be maintained properly or they will tangle.
- Be mindful of how you are sleeping. If you are a stomach sleeper, make sure to always have a pillow or your hand underneath your neck to prevent your face from being buried in the pillow.
- Cleanse your lashes! Make sure to cleanse in and around your lash line to prevent dust and debris build up along your lashes with oil-free cleansers.
