Eyelash Extensions

What are Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash extensions are synthetic or natural fibers individually attached to natural eyelashes using a semi-permanent adhesive. They enhance the length, thickness, and curl of natural lashes, providing a fuller and more dramatic appearance. Eyelash extensions can be customized to achieve various looks, from natural to glamorous.

Common Questions

Eyelash extensions typically last 4 to 6 weeks, depending on individual lash growth cycles and aftercare practices.

It's generally recommended to avoid mascara as it can clump and weaken the adhesive bond. However, water-based and extension-safe mascaras may be used sparingly on the tips of the extensions.

When applied correctly by a trained technician, eyelash extensions are safe for natural lashes. However, improper application or poor aftercare can lead to damage or premature shedding.

It's best to avoid exposing eyelash extensions to excessive moisture, such as swimming or steam rooms, for the first 24-48 hours after application to allow the adhesive to fully cure.

Eyelash extensions should be filled every 2 to 3 weeks to maintain their fullness and appearance as natural lashes shed and new ones grow in.

Eyelash extensions should be removed by a trained professional using a specialized adhesive remover to prevent damage to natural lashes.
