18 Apr Eyelash Extensions
Classic and volume eyelash extensionsEyelash extensions are semipermanent lashes that are hand-glued on top of your natural lashes. Unlike strip lashes, lash extensions actually look real. If you take care of your eyelash extensions they can last for six to eight weeks until they naturally fall out, like your lashes usually do. Once they start falling out, you can have lash infills so technically, you can make your extensions last indefinitely. Classic Extensions Classic lash extensions are one lash extension laid on top of one natural lash. Classic sets look natural and aren’t overly dramatic or distracting. If you already have a lot of lashes, they can give extra length without the use of mascara. With classic lashes if you do not naturally have lots of lashes classic lashes cannot give you anymore so some sets will be fuller or less full on other people depending on their natural lashes. Volume Extensions Volume extensions are multiple extensions made into a fan and applied to one natural lash. If classic extensions aren’t enough for you and you prefer a fuller and fluffier effect like strip lashes then volume lash extensions can be tailored to your desired look.
Do eyelash extensions ruin my lashes?
The most popular misconception of Lash extensions is that they ruin your eyelashes. However, in fact they do not damage natural lashes when they are applied correctly by your lash artist. Improper aftercare is what will ruin your lashes. You will not need breaks in between sets either.
When lash extensions collect a build up of oils, makeup, creams, moisturisers etc. it breaks down the glue bond to the natural lash especially oil-based products. Keeping your eyelashes clean is essential for retention. This is easily done and can be easily added to your daily routine.
You can simply purchase a lash shampoo/cleanser in the salon, and it comes with a free cleansing brush. You wouldn’t spend money on your hair and not keep it clean and the same goes with your lashes. This also prevents eye infections from any leftover makeup too.
Do Lash extensions hurt?
Lash extensions should not hurt in any way. The lash extensions are simply laid on top of your natural lash. You may feel a slight sting when you open your eyes after having a set done but that is completely normal but doesn’t happen to everyone as some people have more sensitive than others. The glue used has strong fumes which may irritate the eyes but will subside in minutes.
How long does it take?
Lash extensions are not a quick in and out service. The service takes time and precision to complete the requested look. Full sets can range from 2-3 hours max. Infills can take 45 minutes to up to an hour and a half depending on how many lashes you come in with since the time of your previous appointment and how well they’ve been treated in between appointments.
Can i wash my face around my eyes?
You can wash your face, we encourage to keep your face and lashes clean to keep them free from dirt, oils etc. As long as you are gentle, and your products are oil free.
