Frequently Asked Questions

What are eyelash extensions and how can they benefit me?

Lash extensions are individually applied to each of your natural eyelashes. This gives a far more natural and effortless effect than applying a strip of fake eyelashes. Lashes can be applied to achieve a variety of looks - they can add length as well as thickness and volume, they can brighten up your eyes and make your face look more youthful, and can create the doe-eyed look that people tend to want to achieve with their mascara.

Eyelash extensions can be worn while swimming, showering, at the gym, or on camping trips and holidays to allow you to look glamorous at all times, with no effort at all!

Lash extensions are also great for cutting down the time it takes to get ready before going out - to work, parties and formal occasions, or just walking out of the house everyday. You will no longer need to apply mascara, and many people find that having fabulous lashes lifts their overall appearance so much that they feel much more confident and glamorous even when not dressed up or wearing any other makeup - you can literally wake up in the morning feeling ready to go anywhere!

What is the procedure of applying eyelash extensions and how long does it take?

You will be lying down in a comfortable, relaxing environment. You will need to keep your eyes closed during the application of the eyelashes. Application takes approximately 1 hour. Most people find this to be a very relaxing experience but if you suffer from claustrophobia this procedure may not suit you.

How long will the eyelash extensions last?

They will last as long as your natural eyelashes last. Because the extensions are attached to your natural eyelashes, the eyelash extensions will fall out as your natural eyelashes do. How often your natural lashes shed depends on your eyelash growth cycle and varies for everyone. Most people will require infills every 3-4 weeks to keep their eyelashes looking fabulous.

So long as you maintain your lash extensions with regular infill appointments, you will have beautiful lashes forever!

What do I need to do before my appointment?

  • Please do not wear any eye-makeup to your appointment. If you must, don't worry - it will be removed once you get here and you may reapply it afterwards if you wish.

  • Contact lenses should also be removed beforehand.

  • Avoid putting oily substances such as moisturisers on your eyes the day before your appointment.

How do I take care of my lashes after my appointment?

  • Do Not get your lashes wet for 24 hours after getting them applied. During this period, try to avoid heavy sweating, and wear goggles in the shower to keep them dry. After 24 hours, the lashes will be completely waterproof and you can go about all these activities as normal without having to worry about things such as mascara smudges.

  • If you feel the need to wear additional eye makeup while you have eyelash extensions, make sure you use water based products (not oil based or water-proof as these dissolve the bonding agent and cause your eyelash extenions to fall out much faster). Also use oil-free eye makeup remover.

  • Be gentle with your eyelashes - avoid rubbing your eyes, do not use an eyelash curler on your extensions and most importantly if you have any problems or would like them removed, always get them removed by a qualified eyelash extension technician and do not try to pick them off yourself as this will damage your natural eyelashes.
