FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT ARE LASH EXTENSIONS?
HOW LONG DO LASH EXTENSIONS LAST?
Lash extensions require touch ups every 2-3 weeks to maintain their fullness. The longevity of your extensions will vary based upon your natural lash growth cycle; if your hair grows fast, then so will your extensions, and fills will be needed more often. If you follow the instructions for caring for your lash extensions, your lashes will remain fuller longer. The average human eye sheds 5-7 natural eyelashes per day, this is 70-90 natural lashes within 2 weeks (half your natural eyelashes), this is why we recommend fills every 2 to 3 weeks. If you return for a fill with less than 40% of your extensions in place, you will be required to obtain a full set. Our rates are set by the hour as opposed to charging by the week.
DO EYELASH EXTENSIONS DAMAGE YOUR NATURAL LASHES?
HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MY LASHES?
Do not rub, pick, pull or twist your extensions.
Do not sleep on your lashes. If you are a side sleeper, try and keep your lashes out of the pillow (sleeping on your side or your face creates wrinkles and lines on your face, in addition to ruining your lashes- incentive to not sleep on your face).
Gently comb the tips of your extensions with the spoolie brush provided as needed to straighten and "fluff" your extensions.
Never use mascara on your extensions, as this will shorten the lifespan of your extensions, cause clumping, and dissolve the adhesive. You can use mascara on your bottom lashes.
Never use organic solvents or oil makeup removers on your extensions, as this will dissolve the adhesive and ruin your extensions.
Receive regular fills to maintain the fullness and natural look of your extensions.
Cleanse your eyelash extensions several times per week, if not daily, with a lash cleanser
HOW ARE LASH EXTENSIONS APPLIED?
Lashes are applied to each individual lash by isolating and separating each lash away from the other so that lashes don’t get glued together. Our team has mastered this important technique. Each lash is placed on top of your natural lash, never touching the skin. We cannot place a lash where there is no lash. Our goal is to apply lashes to 99% of your natural lashes.

IS THERE A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CLUSTER LASHES AND VOLUME LASHES?
Volume lashing is not to be confused with cluster lashes. Cluster lashes are a faster alternative to volume extensions, however, "quick and easy" does not mean "bigger or better." Cluster lashes are pre-made fans with 4-7 synthetic fibers bound together at their base. They usually are married at the base with a tiny plastic knot. The problem with most cluster eyelash extensions is that they are applied to multiple eyelashes at once and the bases are usually bulky from the adhesive that holds them together, which causes follicle tension. Because lashes grow at different stages, the tension from the cluster can cause premature lash loss. This can lead to a type of permanent hair loss called Traction Alopecia if done repeatedly.
ARE THE LASHES VEGAN?
Yes, all the products we use for lash extensions are vegan!
