You Asked, We Answered
How do I prepare for my appointment?
Prior to your appointment, please arrive without any makeup, avoid caffeine to reduce shakiness, and shower as you cannot get new lashes wet for 24 hours.
Will lash extensions ruin or cause my natural lashes to fall out?
If extensions are applied properly, they will do not ruin or cause your natural lashes to fall out. Remember that your natural lashes have their own life cycle of falling and growing – like the hair found elsewhere on your body. You lose about 2-3 lashes daily. 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 sparser because you've been accustomed to a full set of longer, thicker lashes.
How long will my new lashes last?
Your new lashes will last between 2 to 4 weeks depending on your skincare routine and your own natural lash life cycle. To maintain the full look of your lashes, it will require you to maintain refills every 2-3 weeks.
How often should I come in for lash refills?
We recommend getting refills every 2 to 4 weeks. If you wait too long your extensions will fall out and you will require a full set. Factors such as exposure to humidity, steam or touching your eyes a lot may cause the extensions to fall quicker. Refills can take from 45 - 60 minutes, depending on the state of your remaining lashes. A good sign of when you need a refill is when your extensions are 50%-60% gone.
