Lash Extensions FAQ's
Now that we have gone over all the different types of lash extensions we offer (you can view that post HERE if you are curious or missed the post), I wanted to use this post to answer some popular questions most women (myself included) have before getting lash extensions:
WHAT ARE LASH EXTENSIONS? Lash extensions are individual strands of fibers made to look like a natural eyelash. When they are applied, they lengthen and thicken your own lashes. They are applied to each individual lash. They look great and feel completely natural.
DO I NEED TO DO ANYTHING TO PREPARE FOR MY APPOINTMENT? Make sure you come with a clean face and clean lashes, free of mascara. You can also feel free to bring a pair of headphones if you want to zone out while your lashes are applied.
HOW LONG DO THEY TAKE TO APPLY? The first appointment, expect around 2 hours. Fills usually take between 45 minutes to an hour.
HOW LONG DO THEY LAST? This varies from person to person. They will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your lashes. This usually is between 2-4 weeks for most, then a fill will be needed.
CAN I USE MASCARA WITH MY LASHES? We recommend not using mascara. One of the biggest benefits of lash extensions is not needing to use mascara and have bold, thick, fluffy lashes.
CAN I GET THEM WET, GO SWIMMING, AND WORKOUT WITH THEM? Try to avoid getting your extensions wet for 48 hours to allow your lashes to fully bond to your lashes. After that, you can definitely go about your routines as usual. Steam can make the adhesive a little loose, so if you can, avoid saunas.
ARE THEY ADDICTING? Yes, yes they are :)
