Frequently Asked Questions
What are lash extensions?
They are semi permanent fibers comprised of individual synthetic polyester fibers. They are thicker at the base and taper to a fine point for a natural look. The synthetic lash is adhered to an individual natural lash with a bonding agent. The end results are a longer, thicker, sometimes darker defined natural lash.
Will lash extensions damage my natural lashes?
No. They are actually kinder to your lashes than a lash curler and regular mascara that can dry out lashes and cause them to break. Extensions look and feel real.
How long do lash extensions last?
They can last indefinitely with regular fills. When your natural lash sheds, which is every 30-60 days, the extension will fall out with it. Fills are necessary every 2-4 weeks to maintain the look. Proper care will extend the life of the extension.
How do I care for my extensions?
For the first 24-48 hrs.

Do NOT steam the face, use a sauna, swim, wash your face with hot water, or tan.
