WHAT ARE EYELASH EXTENSIONS?

Semi-permanent high fashion synthetic fiber, silk or mink lashes are meticulously applied individually to each individual natural lash creating volume and length.  The safest, most hygienic and customer-satisfying application is Hollywood's lash-y little secret no more.

 

HOW LONG WILL THEY LAST?

We naturally shed between 2 to 5 lashes everyday.  With a 90 day life span, each natural eyelash will go through three phases - growth, rest and shed. As with any living organism, there are many factors that affect the growth and strength of all hair including but not limited to genetics, hormones, medications, cleansing products, seasonal changes, sport activities and cosmetics.  With proper application, lash forcasting, home care, lash safe products and regular re-lash appointments you will prolong the life of your extensions.  TWO WEEK standing appointments are recommended.

 

CAN I USE MASCARA OVER THE EXTENSIONS?

NO! Only use mascara on your lower lashes.

 

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR LASHES?

Clients should arrive with a fresh face free of makeup and moisture.  Any removal of heavy mascaras will incur additional charges.  DO NOT consume any coffee, energy drinks or dietary supplements prior to appointment as they will increase eye movement.  New clients should arrive 15 minutes prior to scheduled appointment to fill out forms and review all terms and conditions before the application process. Your time starts at expected scheduled time.

 

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY NEW LASHES? 

Allow 48 hours for lash adhesive to completely cure keeping lashes free of any water, oils, salts, moisture and steam.  Always use oil-free facial cleansers and products around the eye area.  Oils and salts will break down the bond.  Do not use lash curlers, lash perms or mascaras on your lashes.  The use of Q-tips, cotton balls or lint fibers are not recommended near the lash line. BSL Natural cloths should be your skins choice for cleansing.  Natural skin oils, salts, lash shedding, excessive rubbing, frequent heat/steam, improper care within the first 48 hours and use of oily products are common reasons lashes fall off.  The use of suggested lash products (BSL Cloths, Lash Pillow, Retractable Mascara Wand) may extend the frequency between re-lash visits.
