What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are synthetic pieces of hair that have been made to replicate real eyelashes. They are thicker on the bottom and thinner and tapered on top. They are always attached to your natural lashes, one extension to one natural lash. They are attached with medical grade adhesive that was made specifically for this procedure.
How long do eyelash extensions last?
This is a luxury service that requires maintenance. Relashes should be done every 2-3 weeks, depending on you lifestyle and how you take care of you lashes. As long as you continue with the Relashes you can have Eyelash extensions indefinitely.
Do they need maintenance and why?
Yes, Relashes should be done every 2-3 weeks according to your lifestyle and how you take care of your lashes. All hair in our body goes through a few shedding cycles and research has shown that we lose about 1/4 of our lashes every 2 weeks, depending on our individual hair cycle. At this time we replace any lash extension that looks less that perfect and attach a new extension where ever there is one missing.
How do I take care of my extensions?
The most important rules are:
1. You CAN NOT wet your lashes for the first 3 hrs after application, this includes new sets as well as Relashes.
2. No oil based products around your eyes at all, anytime! Oil breaks down the adhesive.
3. Only use LINT FREE products on your lashes, (we retail anything you need), but no tissues, no cotton. Tissues and cotton have lint that can pull on your lashes or get stuck and bother you later.
4. No rubbing your eyes, as this can make you pull out your lashes and might feel uncomfortable.
5. Avoid sleeping on your stomach, try sleeping on your back at least for the first 2 nights.
*As you get used to your lashes, these will be second nature and you won’t think about these things. They will be part of your routine.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure takes from 1 hr to 2 1/2 hrs, depending on your choice of set. Our Mascara Set (half set, this is 40 lashes on each eye), a very subtle look, takes 1 hr to complete. Our Luscious Set takes 2 hrs to complete, this is 80 lashes on each eye. Most popular set, the Sultry Set takes 2 1/2 hrs to complete, in this set the stylist tastefully attaches a lash on every single lash, usually over 100 lashes per eye. Remember we always attach one extension to one natural lash to avoid natural lash damage. All sets are customized to each individual.

Does it hurt?
Absolutely not. Most of our clients actually fall asleep in our relaxing atmosphere, unless having an entertaining conversation. The procedure feels close to the sensation of someone playing with your hair.
How do I prepare for my eyelash extensions?
Make sure that you come prepared. Come to your session without any makeup or creams. Make sure that your hair is clean, as it will be difficult to wash later without wetting the lashes. Also make sure that if you wear contacts lenses, that you wear regular glasses that day and the following 48 hrs, this is to avoid any irritation during the procedure and to avoid wetting your lashes while reapplying the contacts.
