Frequently Asked Questions
What are Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash Extensions is a revolutionary new product that lengthens and thickens eyelashes. Eyelash Extensions are single strands of synthetic, mink or silk eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. They are applied to individual eyelashes, one lash at a time, for a natural, elegant and luscious look. Eyelash Extensions is perfect for special occasions as well as for every day wear.
Can I wear my contact lenses with these extensions?
Will my longer lashes hit the lenses of my glasses?
They may if they are too long, but your specialist can put on a shorter natural look. If you would like, you can bring your glasses in to test them out.
Could I possibly have an allergic reaction to the adhesive?
It doesn't touch the skin, as the lashes are glued to your own rather than the lid. But if you are taking any antibiotics, it may cause your immune system to be weak therefore cause a reaction. Benadryl can help with any irritation.
What do they look like and how do they feel?
With proper application, Eyelash Extensions look and feel completely real, lightweight and natural.
How long do Eyelash Extensions Last?
When applied properly, semi-permanent Eyelash Extensions can last up to 2 months, depending on the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes and the expertise of the technician applying the eyelash extensions. You will probably want touch-ups every two to four weeks.

Can I apply Eyelash Extensions to my own eyelashes?
No. Only a trained professional will be able to safely apply Eyelash Extensions. Unprofessional application or self-application may cause eye irritation, damaged, clumpy, or unnatural looking lashes. Eyelash Extensions are applied one lash at a time to your individual natural eyelashes to achieve long, thick and natural looking eyelashes. The procedure involves bonding the synthetic extension to your own natural eyelashes one by one.
How often should I get touch-ups?
We recommend getting a touch up every two to four weeks. A natural eyelash falls off every 4-6 weeks on average due to the natural growth cycle and is naturally replaced with the growth of a new eyelash. At any given moment, each of your natural eyelashes is at a different stage of its life cycle. A touch up is needed to replenish the lashes that have completed their life cycle. Touch ups generally less time and are relatively inexpensive.
