What are Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash extensions are a revolutionary new product that will create longer, thicker, and fuller natural looking eyelashes. These are not your traditional fake eyelash strips; they are semi-permanent individual eyelash extensions. They are made of synthetic micro fiber threads that are curved and sized to provide a natural look and feel like they were your own. Each lash extension is skillfully glued meticulously onto each natural eyelash, one lash at a time.
This delicate procedure means that going to a Licensed & Certified Eyelash Extension Specialists will not only guarantee the end result (gorgeous, natural lashes — and not clumpy, heavy lashes) but also the ultimate care is given to applying each eyelash extension.

Q&A On Eyelash Extensions
What is the application process like?
The process in applying eyelash extensions is completely painless. You will be lying down comfortably on a massage table with your eyes closed. Then each lash extension is applied one by one to each natural lash. It is quite relaxing that most clients fall asleep.
Are eyelash extensions safe?
They are safe when applied by a properly trained Professional. The eyelash extensions are applied individually to each natural lashes not the skin, so chance of allergic reactions or irritations are minimal.
How long do they last?
Keep in mind that every client is different. On average, you could lose 1-5 lashes a day. We also go through a natural shedding cycle every 60-90 days. During this shed cycle, you can lose more lashes in a day. So depending on your natural lash growth cycle, proper care, and the type of set you choose, our eyelash extensions can last from 4-5 weeks until the very last extension falls off. To maintain your beautiful lashes’ full and thick look, touch ups are recommended every 2 weeks.
How long does the procedure take?
This depends on the set you choose and whether you want CLASSIC or VOLUME Lashes. An initial full set can range from 1.5 to 4 hours. Touch-ups are either 60 or 90 minutes.
How many lash extensions are applied on each application?
It all depends on the amount of natural lashes the client has, and the desired look each client wants. The most basic and natural look, typically about 40-60 lash extensions are applied to each eye. For those wanting a more glamorous look, over 100-plus lashes may be applied to each eye. We will make sure to work with you, to get whatever look you desire!
