Lash extensions are synthetic lashes that are applied to natural lashes. You must have natural lashes for a lash extension to be applied.
It's kind of like going to a spa - very relaxing and you might even fall asleep (many of our clients do!) You'll lay back so we can properly reach your lashes from the correct angle, and your eyes will be closed during the entire process. You won't be able to feel much during the application process - it will just feel like your lashes are being brushed.

Make sure to remove all makeup prior to your appointment so we have a clean slate to work on. Try to avoid coffee and other caffeine before your appointment.

It is not recommended that you wear mascara or eyeliner after getting extension (you won't need to anyway). The ingredients in these products can break the bond of the extensions to your natural lashes causing major loss of the extensions. It is best to avoid any oil & glycol based face products and makeup. Daily cleansing of the extensions is required to keep them clean and looking best
The extensions on your natural lashes will shed after or around 4-6 weeks when properly cared for. It is recommended to get a lash fill every 2-3 weeks to maintain fullness.
Keep in mind your natural lashes do normally shed 1-5 per day - per eye, that's why refills are so important, this also depends on your natural hair growth cycle & client aftercare.
This can based on many factors, the most important is the aftercare. Make sure you are cleansing your lashes every single day, avoiding oil based products, cleansing right after you go swimming or working out.
If you would like to try extensions again, we recommend trying a hybrid or volume set as it is multiple lighter weight extensions wrapping around your individual natural lash to create more bond.
