About your lashes

Your lash extensions are attached to your own individual eyelashes and will shed as your natural lashes shed. Maintaining your lash extensions will require regular visits (fill-in) to attach new extensions to your own eyelashes as your eyelash growth cycle regenerates new lashes. With a few simple care instructions, you will be on your way to enjoying your luscious long lashes. To increase the longevity of your lashes, it is advised to avoid moisture and touching as much as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the procedure?

After your consultation with your lash stylist to decide the look you want to achieve, the lash area is cleansed and then prepped with tape to hold down the lower lashes and protect the surrounding eye area. You will be lying down with both eyes closed for the procedure.  Extensions will then be hand added one by one to your own natural lashes.The procedure is completely pain free.  Once completed, the tape will be gently removed, lashes are brushed and set. Your new lashes are now ready to be previewed! 

How long do the eyelash extension last?

With proper care, eyelash extensions can last up to 4-6 weeks. Lash extensions will gradually fall out with the growth of the natural lashes. To maintain fullness, a refill is suggested every 2-3 weeks.

Can I get my new lashes wet?

You must wait 48 hours before exposing your new lash extensions to water as the adhesive needs to fully cure.  After 48 hours, your lash extensions will be waterproof, smudge proof and flake proof. You'll be able to get shower, swim and sweat without ruining your new lashes!

Can I still wear eye makeup?

Yes. Waterbased/ Oil free makeup removers should be used. Any product that is oil based will break down the bonding agent in the adhesive and result in lashes to fall off quicker than expected. 

What to do before the procedure?

Please do not wear any eye makeup and do not wear contacts during the procedure. Contacts should be removed prior to procedure.

How do I remove my lash extensions?

You must not pick the lashes off as this can cause damages to your natural lashes.  To remove the lashes, a special remover must be used by a professional, so please book an appointment with your lash artist.

Tips to extend the life of your lashes

  • Avoid using oil-based skin care and makeup products around the eye, including mascara and makeup remover. 
  • Do not use waterproof mascara. If you can, it is better not to use any mascara and you may find you don’t even need it.
  • Wash around the eye area with the recommended lash cleanser, even if you are not wearing eye makeup. Natural oils produced in the skin can affect the adhesive, so it needs to be cleansed daily.
  • Avoid rubbing your eyes or lashes, especially when washing your face. It is recommended to clean around the eye area with a washcloth or cotton swab.
  • Do not use an eyelash curler – it will pull off the lashes. One of the benefits of lash extensions is the ability to add curl to your lashes. If you would like more curl, please speak to your lash technician.
  • If you can, sleep on your back to avoid the risk of your lashes rubbing against your pillow.
  • Gently brush your lashes with a clean mascara wand to groom them – once or twice a day is sufficient, do not over brush. The best time do this is after showering, as they will be softer and less likely to damage. 
  • Never trim your eyelashes. If you want them shorter, let your technician know at next appointment.
  • Avoid pulling your lashes, and do not attempt to remove yourself. If you would like them removed, please contact your lash technician.
  • Avoid sunscreens, especially spray sunscreens, around the eye area. Spray tans should be okay. 
  • Most eyeliners will be okay to use, except for gel pencil liners because they tend to be oily.
  • No cotton balls may be used around lashes.
  • If you experience any pain, redness or irritation, contact your technician immediately.
  • If you choose to use products outside those recommended by your lash specialist, you do so at your own risk.
