What are lash extensions?
Lash extensions are the perfect way to extend the length and thickness of natural eyelashes and are a practical, convenient and beautiful alternative to the daily use of mascara. Unlike decades-old strip lashes, lash extensions are the first innovation in lash lengthening that can be worn daily, without nightly removal, are fully customizable to your individual preference. Because each tapered, synhetic lash is bonded to a single natural lash the final result is one of effortless glamour that is difficult to detect even close-up
Will they damage my natural lashes?
A properly trained and certified lash artist knows how to select and apply the most appropriate eyelash extension based upon your individual lash length and strength. At Eye Love Beauty our #1 priority is natural lash health. Our professional technique allows natural lashes to grow and thrive. Lash extensions should never hurt or cause your natural lash to break off. We ensure lash exte3nsion placement that doesn't interrupt your natural lash growth cycle. Once your natural lash is ready to shed, the extension placed on the lash naturally sheds along with it so there is no pulling, breakage or damage to your natural lash.
How long do they really last?
With properly applied lash extensions, proper at-home care and maintenance visits at Eye Love Beauty, lash extensions may be worn indefinitely. With proper at home care, the adhesive will last anywhere from 4-6 weeks. However, you do lose 3-5 natural lashes everyday (from each eye) so after an average of 3 weeks, most clients will want to come in for a "touch up" to keep their lashes looking full. There are many factors that could affect the retention of your extensions including improper home care, not cleaning the lash line, oily eyelids, the use of oil based products on or around the eyeline, medications, allergies, thyroid or hormonal issues, lifestyle, seasonal changes, a natural heavy lash shed, and so much more. If you do run into an issue with your retention, please contact us so we may troubleshoot and discuss next steps.
Can I exercise, swim and shower with my lash extensions?
That's the whole point of our services! Lash extensions give you stunning lashes that look great no matter what your schedule entails. You can swim, maintain your regular workouts and lifestyle and still have stunning lash extensions.
How do I prepare for my appointment?
Arrive 5-10 minutes before your scheduled appointment time. Thoroughly cleanse face and lashes prior to your appointment, be sure to pay special attention to your lash line. Do not use any moisturizer or makeup. Avoid caffeine within 4 hours of your appointment time.
How do I clean my lash extensions?
It is necessary to clean and brush your lashes/lash line daily to prevent eye irritation, infection, blepharitis or other eye health issues. To do so, use an oil-free makeup remover (like those available at Eye Love Beauty) on your lash line/extensions to fully remove any makeup/debris in the lashes so as to keep your eyes healthy and allow the lashes to perform their primary function of keeping things out of your eyes! We retail a selection of lash-friendly cleanser and aftercare products that are specially formulated for eyelash extension wearers that's gentle and safe on the natural lash and extension adhesive. Remember, the life of your eyelash extensions greatly depends upon how well you care for them.
What makes you different, especially if I've had a bad experience elsewhere?
At Eye Love Beauty we are licensed Cosmetologists and hold several professional Certifications, including Master Lash Artist and Russian Volume Certifications for eyelash extensions. Our primary focus and specialty is ensuring your natural lash health is protected throughout the duration of wearing eyelash extensions. If at any point your lash artist observes damage being done to your natural lashes or it is assumed that the extensions are too heavy for your natural lash, adjustments in the length and/or weight of your extensions will be made and discussed with you to ensure your natural lash health is protected! If ever you are concerned about the process or your natural lashes, we invite you to ask as many questions as necessary to feel comfortable and confident in your lash artist's ability to not only give you great lashes, but an amazing experience that you can enjoy for years to come! We use only the highest quality lashes and medical-grade adhesive in the industry to ensure your eyes are not only safe, but pampered with our lashes. We don't charge "per lash" but instead believe every woman deserves the fullest, most stunning lashes that her natural lashes will allow!
