What are Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash extensions is a unique method to enhance your natural eyelash. Lash extensions are applied individually to each natural eyelash. They can lengthen, thicken and enhance your own natural eyelashes. Different curls, lengths, thicknesses and types of eyelash extensions can be used to suit the look you desire, giving you an enhanced natural look or something a little more dramatic. For best results, talking is discouraged during the application process as facial muscle movement may affect the result and will slow down the application time.
How long do eyelash extensions last?
There are several factors that affect the longevity of lash extensions.
- How well and thoroughly you follow aftercare instructions
- The length of your natural eyelash growth cycle
- Your skin type and makeup routine
Touch-ups or refills are recommended every 2 - 3 weeks after the initial application. A general rule of thumb to enjoy and properly maintain eyelash extensions is: the less you touch them, the longer they will last

We would kindly ask that you do your best to arrive with no eye makeup including no moisturizers, creams and oil-based cleaners on your natural lashes.

If you have a lash lift, please wait until your natural lashes have relaxed to its natural curl to get eyelash extensions.
