frequently asked questions
EYELASH EXTENSIONS & INFILL’S
What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are semi permanent synthetic lashes that are connected to a natural lash with a medial graded bonding adhesive. They can create length, thickness and curl to accentuate the natural lash line and face shape. Each extension is applied to a single isolated natural lash.
What are they made out of?
Eyelash extensions (synthetic silk and synthetic mink) are made from synthetic fibres called PBT (polybutylene-terephthalate). The features that differentiate silk and mink from each other are the way they are tapered (becoming gradually narrower towards the tip of the lash), their weight, and their finish. Silk is less tapered, lightweight, with a glossier finish; whilst mink lashes are more tapered, very lightweight, with a matte finish.
Do they damage your natural lashes?
Not at all! Eyelash extensions should always be applied taking special care to ensure that they are all applied individually and correctly to maintain your eyelash health. An eyelash extension sheds when your natural lash sheds, and so long as an appropriate weight extension has been applied, your natural lashes will grow through as normal.
How long do they last?
Eyelash extensions last anywhere from 2-3 weeks depending upon how well they are cared for and what your natural lash shed/growth cycle is. The average person loses anywhere between 2-5 natural lashes per day, which is why fills are required during a particular time frame. Please refer to AFTER CARE for information on how to care for your lashes.
Do they hurt?
No, not at all! the procedure is completely safe and painless.
After prepping your lashes and applying comfortable under eye pads for protection of the bottom lashes, your eyes will remain closed for the application. It is a very relaxing, non-invasive treatment and most of our clients take the time to catch up on their beauty sleep!
How long do they take to apply?
Depending on what look you’re hoping to achieve, application usually takes around 1.5- 2hours for a classic fullest and hybrid fullset, whilst a fullest of Russian volume can take around 3 hours. Fills range from 45 minutes- 2 hours.
What is the difference between classic, volume and hybrid eye lash extensions?
Classic lashes are are singularly (1:1 - 1 extension lash to 1 natural lash ) applied extensions.
Volume lashes are multiple extensions that are handmade (which takes a skilled/trained professional) into a fan and applied to one natural lash. Volume lashes are very very thin and light so that you can put multiple lashes onto one natural lash.
Hybrid lashes are made from a mix of classic lashes 1:1 and volume handmade fans 1:3 ,1:4, 1:5 (eg. 1 natural lash to a fan of 4 light weight extensions) creating a light volume appearance.
How often should I be coming in for lash refills?
Eyelash extensions are to be filled between 2 to 3 weeks, to ensure the fullness and growth is maintained.
Although you may feel your eyelash extensions still look somewhat full after 3 weeks, the extension is far to grown out to not be re placed with a new extension - if lashes haven’t shed, they are always naturally growing. Grown out extensions create weight distributed to the tip of your natural lash causing major strain on your lash. This creates that uncomfortable lash that continues to twist/ droop downward and potential damage to the natural lash.
