What are Eyelash Extensions?
These eyelash extensions are not to be confused with the self-stick strip falsies OR individual clusters of lashes. They are semi-permanent, synthetic extensions which are glued one by one onto your natural lash (NOT THE SKIN). This is done by using a specially formulated glue that lasts 4-5 weeks. Single synthetic eyelashes are applied to your own natural eyelash to achieve a beautiful, luscious and long (or short) set of lashes that are natural-looking and comfortable.
Do they hurt? How long does it take?
When applied properly, you won't even feel them on. Every salon varies in technique but at The Lash Loft, the application process takes an hour or less for the initial full set and is painless and relaxing. Depending on the type of fill you need thereafter, it can take anywhere from 20 to 45 minutes. Fills are prorated, pricing is determined by the number of weeks it has been since your last fill.
How long do they last?
When applied properly, eyelash extensions will last as long as your natural lash growth cycle. A one time application can last anywhere from 4 to 5 & 1/2 weeks. Lash extensions are low maintenance and the frequency of your fills depends on how well you take care of them as well as personal preference.
Taking care of your lashes consists of;
*Not touching or picking at them
*Staying out of steam for the first 24 hours after your initial application
*Using OIL-FREE make-up remover and make up products
*Refraining from applying mascara onto your lash extensions
Our clients find that keeping a full and fresh appearing look is not difficult to maintain.
Will they harm my natural lashes?
Again, when applied properly by a professional, eyelash extensions will NOT harm your natural lashes. In fact, they help your real lashes grow in thicker due to the absence of rubbing your mascara off, curling your lashes, or rubbing your eyes. Your first initial set of eyelash extensions is the thinnest they'll ever be. This is because each time you come in for a fill there will be more natural lash growth and therefore more for us to glue extensions onto.
**Note: Every lash salon is different in technique. Lashes should NEVER be painful, clumpy, or unnatural-looking. They should always be applied to your individual eyelash, not your skin. If this sounds like an experience you have had, let us change your mind. Beautiful, full, healthy lashes CAN be yours.
