What are eyelash extensions?
Lash Extensions lengthen and thicken your own natural lashes. Lash Extensions are single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to mimic your natural eyelash. They are applied to the individual natural lash, one by one for a beautifully luscious look. Lash Extensions are for every day or special occasions…whatever you choose! Rock your everyday look with a little va va voom!
How long will a set of eyelash extensions last?
Lash Extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes. Meaning, everyone will have a different experience. Also it depends on daily activities. Getting fills (touch ups) should only be required every 2 to 3 weeks depending on the set.
How often should you get fills?
We recommend getting a fill (touch up) every 2 to 3 weeks depending on the set. If you wait too long, your lash extensions will fall out and you will require a full set. Your natural lashes fall off every 45-60 days due to the natural growth cycle and are naturally replaced with the growth of a new lash. Other factors such and exposure to steam or touching your eyes a lot may cause the extensions to fall out sooner. A fill is needed to fill in lashes that have fallen. They range from 30-60 minutes depending on original set.
Can I swim, shower, or exercise while wearing eyelash extensions?
