About eyelash extensions
Eyelash Extensions are product that lengthens and thickens your own natural eyelashes. Lash Extensions are single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. They are applied to each individual natural eyelash one by one for a natural, beautiful and luscious look. Eyelash Extensions are perfect for special occasions or for day to day wear.
The application process for lash extensions normally takes anywhere from 2 - 3 hours with someone who is experienced doing these. You will lay comfortably on a massage or facial table with your eyes closed. The Eyelash professional will then apply an under eye gel pad or surgical tape to cover your lower lashes. Then the extensions will be applied to each individual eyelash on a hair by hair basis.
Touch ups should be every 4 to 5 weeks. If you wait too long your eyelash extensions will fall out and you will require a full set. Your natural eyelashes fall off every 90 days due to the natural growth cycle and are naturally replaced with the growth of a new eyelash. Other factors such as expsoure to steam or touching your eyes alot may cause the extensions to fall sooner. A touch up is needed to fill in any lashes that fallen. Touch ups average about 60 - 90 minutes.
You can swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing. The bonding agent i use is waterproof and allows you to do all that. Special care is required but overall maintenance is low. It is recommended however that you do not wash your eye area for about 12- 24 hours after the eyelash application.
Eyelash extensions are available in a number of lengths and thickness. I normally consult with you first to see what type of style you are interested in. I also determine what your lashes can hold in regards to size. Each person's lashes will vary in strength and length. I take this into consideration when creating a look for you. (The overall look of the lashes is very natural. )
With proper application, meaning one synthetic eyelash applied to one natural lash the look and feel is completely natural looking and real. Noone will know you have extensions.
