What are eyelash extensions?
They are semi-permanent eyelash extensions comprised of individual synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. Our lashes are thicker at the base and taper to a fine point. They are applied to individual eyelashes, one extension at a time, for a natural, elegant look to lengthen and add fullness to the existing lashes.

Will lash extensions harm my natural lashes?
They do not. The biggest myth is that lash extensions damage your own lashes. If applied correctly and properly, they are safe and do not ruin the health of your natural lashes. Be sure not to rub your eyes or tug or pull on the extensions because this can cause lash loss and even damage to your natural lashes. The extension is attached one lash at a time and the safe, medical-grade adhesive never touches the skin.

What is the procedure like?
The application of lash extensions is a safe, painless, relaxing procedure that takes between 60 to 90 minutes to apply. While you are comfortably reclined with your eyes closed, a single, synthetic lash is applied to your natural lash with medical-grade adhesive. There is no discomfort or pain involved in the procedure. In fact, most clients find it is so relaxing and comfortable that they fall asleep.
How long do lash extensions last?
When properly maintained, the lashes will remain in place until the natural lash which it rests on falls out. Natural lashes grow and fall out in cycles (every 60 to 90 days) with or without extensions. People typically shed between 1 and 5 natural lashes each day, depending on individual growth cycles and lifestyle. Because of this natural shedding cycle, lash touch-ups are necessary every 2 to 3 weeks in order to maintain your beautiful look.

Can I wear mascara?
You won’t have to.
