Frequently Asked Questions
Will lash extensions damage my natural lashes?
As a lash artist, it is our responsibility to ensure proper application techniques when applying your extensions. No one individual has the same eye shape or lash type. We know this, so why do we expect to all have the same type of extensions? Choosing the wrong type of extension for a client is a common mistake that can lead to natural lash damage. Most times they are too thick, heavy, and long. In some cases with proper maintenance and aftercare techniques lash extensions can actually help your lashes to grow. This is why it is EXTREMELY important to see an artist who has taken multiple courses, is a licensed professional, and someone who is experienced.
I've had extensions before and i EXPERIENCED some Reactions. am i allergic to the adhesive?
There are a variety of different adhesives on the market today with prices ranging from $10-$100+. If your artist is investing in lower quailty products, you're more likely to experience eye irritation, redness, itchy, and watering. This can occur both during and after service. Your eyes can be a tricky canvas to work on. If you typically have sensitivities to products, lash extensions might not be for you.
What skincare company do you work with?
IMAGE Skincare! I've spent a lot of time and energy researching what I believe are some of the best products on the market today. I started my business with a company I felt I could trust and stand behind. IMAGE does a wonderful job with continuing education and reformulating products as the skincare industry continues to evolve. These products are antioxidant rich, affordable, plant based, organic, results driven, and smell amazing! Yes please!
Why and how often do I need to get my lashes filled?
You should be scheduling your fill appointments every 14-21 days. Anything longer will result in a consultation to further discuss your options. It is important to remember that lash extensions are a luxury service. Your natural lashes cycles every 4-6 weeks. This means that they are constantly growing and shedding. Without proper maintenance, the risk of damage to the natural lash is much higher.
Can I still wear eye make up with extensions?
Let's not deal with the mess! Any sort of liner, mascara, and even some eye shadows can break down the adhesive bond that is holding your lashes together. Not to mention the build up that can occur between, on top, and below the lash line. Cleaning make up off your extensions can be very difficult. You are most likely causing damage and stress trying to remove what is on them. It is best to leave them be, if you're wanting a more dramatic look, talk to your artist about the different style options that are available to you.
What are the extensions made out of?
All lash extensions are made out of high quality synthetic materials. We do not encourage or support Mink lashes.
