What are the benefits of wearing eyelash extensions?
You have probably heard that eyelash extensions can eliminate the need for eye makeup. The thickness and fullness of extensions will make you look and feel gorgeous day and night.
- Appear more youthful, alert, and approachable.
- Feel the incredible experience of increased eye contact, connection,and inner confidence.
- Free yourself from the wasted time, frustration, and damage associated with eyelash curlers and mascara. No more clumpy lashes, smudges, and eye-irritating flakes. Eyeliner is optional as the base of the extension creates a line along the lid. Many clients do not feel the need to wear makeup at all.
- Accentuate the color and brightness of your eyes. A master eyelash artist can actually bring out the green or blue in your eyes or brighten the shade of your brown eyes. They can even make your whites brighter and lessen redness.
- Rest and rejuvenate. Our private spa atmosphere will allow you to unwind, relax, self-reflect, meditate, or even take a little nap. Your comfort is of extreme importance - expect inviting scents and
- music that will set you at ease.
What is the difference between Classic and Volume Lash Techniques?
Classic Technique is where one single extension is attached to one natural lash (1:1) resulting in added length, definition, and curl.
Volume Technique (aka RuVol & Russian Volume) is where multiple extensions are attached together by the stylist using the smallest amount of adhesive creating a customized “fan” and attached to one natural lash. Volume Lashes are applied using 2-5 very thin, lightweight lash extensions to a single natural eyelash. Some refer to the different “fan” sizes by the number of individual extensions as 2D, 3D, 4D, etc. This simply tells the consumer the quantity of individual lashes make up each “fan.” We have never before been able to offer such volume and fullness to our clients in a safe and sustainable way until now. The result is unparalleled fullness while still being lightweight and safe for long-term wear. As with all of our services, we can adjust the fullness level, length, and curl to suit exactly what you want.
What is the difference between Volume Technique and Lash Tabbing, Clusters, and “Individuals”?
Volume Technique is where a lash artist creates custom fans of lightweight single-strand lash extensions and applies them immediately onto your natural lashes. Lash Tabs, Clusters, and “Individuals” can be found at any beauty supply or makeup store: they are pre-made little clusters of lashes. These are meant to be adhered using temporary glue, lasting 1-2 days maximum.
Please be aware of what you’re getting before you lay down for your lash service. Pre-made small clusters of eyelashes have been available for decades; these lashes are heavy and are meant to be applied for a single day’s use. Do not be fooled by low-priced salons or nail shops offering “Volume Lashes”. If you are told your service will take less than an hour, RUN!! They will be applying these old fashioned clusters to your lashes with a strong & long-lasting glue that wasn’t designed for them. These lashes may look good for a few days, but they will start to itch, pull, and hurt soon after. As time goes on, they will start to pull each other off, and break off, taking your natural lashes with them.
How long do eyelash extensions last? How often should I get them touched up?
Each extension should last for the remaining lifespan of the natural eyelash. As your natural lashes grow and shed, the extensions will grow and shed with them. Most clients experience enough shedding within 3 weeks to be in need of a touchup. Some clients need, or want, to come every 2 weeks. These clients either have a somewhat faster growth cycle, are a little rougher on their lashes, or just prefer to have their lashes at maximum fullness as much as possible.
How full your lashes will look at the end of your touchup appointment will be greatly affected by how many lashes you have when you arrive for your appointment- ideally you should have 50% of your extensions still on at touchup time. Please keep this in mind when determining how long to wait to schedule your touchups. Also arriving on time for your appointments will ensure you will receive the maximum amount of eyelashes. We require at least 25% of your extensions to be remaining at the time of your service to qualify for a touchup service. Waiting more than 5 weeks between appointments will require another full set appointment.
Some people ask, “Will they all fall out at the same time?” No, your extensions will fall out one at a time over several weeks in a subtle shedding process.
Is there an age requirement to get lashes put on?
We require that all of our clients be a minimum age of 18 years old.
How long does the initial application take?
Depending on the service selected, the initial application of your eyelash extensions will take 90 mins –4 hours. Our most popular full set, the Couture takes approximately three hours. Touch up appointments take as little as 60 minutes.
Will my natural lashes be damaged?
An expert eyelash stylist will assess the condition and sturdiness of your natural lashes and apply lashes best suited for you. Not only do we plan for your natural lashes to stay healthy and strong, we have many times seen our clients’ natural lashes become healthier and fuller as they continue to see us.
