What are the lashes made of?
It is important to realize is that ALL eyelash extensions “Silk” or “Mink” are made of the same exact material, which is a plastic fiber called PBT. Many manufacturers call their products “mink” and “silk”, this just refers to the look of the eyelash but they are all synthetic.
Eyelashes made from natural fur DO EXIST, but they don’t look as perfect as synthetic eyelashes, and they don’t hold their curl over time; besides they can also cause allergic reactions.
We do NOT use natural fur eyelashes (also called sable) as we believe it is harmful to animals.
Lash lengths and thicknesses.
Eyelash Extensions come in many different curl types, widths, and lengths to help replicate the client’s natural eyelashes. Length from 6 to 15 mm and thickness from 0.05 to 0.15 is selected based on the size of the clients natural eyelash.
Everyone has different lashes, and depending on the condition of your own natural lashes, we can only go a certain length or thickness to ensure that your own natural lashes remain strong and healthy.
What You Need To Know..
Eyelash extensions are individual lash strands expertly attached to each of your own natural eyelashes with a special medical grade adhesive. They are applied to the eyelash itself and are never in direct contact with your skin.
If cared for properly, eyelash extensions can last up to 4 weeks. We will provide you with the simple instructions you need.
The procedure can take anywhere from 30 minutes for a refill to 90 minutes for a full set depending on client desire.
The procedure is completely safe and non-intrusive – the lashes are applied to each individual eyelash and never in contact with the skin.
We recommend coming in every 2 to 3 weeks for maintenance – similar to getting your nails done.
Mascara is not required… However, it may be worn. It MUST only be water based mascara. DO NOT USE OIL-BASED OR WATER-PROOF MASCARA.
Waterproof mascara or any type of oil based mascara can dissolve the bonding agent and shorten the life of your eyelash extensions causing them to fall out quicker than sooner than normal. Care also needs to be taken in washing off the mascara. Only use a water based eye makeup remover.
The adhesive is waterproof and allows you to shower, swim and exercise. We do however recommend that you do not wash your eye area for about 72 hours after the eyelash application so that the adhesive can set properly.
Rubbing and pulling on the eyelash extensions can shorten the lifespan and may require you to return for a fill sooner than normal. Special care is required but overall maintenance is low.
