Frequently Asked Questions

HOW LONG WILL MY FULL SET LAST?

A full set of extensions lasts as long as the cycle of your natural eyelashes, which is 4 to 6 weeks, depending on the person. I recommend doing an eyelash touch-up every 2 to 3 weeks.

HOW LONG IS MY APPOINTMENT? 

I take 2 to 2 ½ hours, depending on the type of look. The duration varies according to the type of look desired by the client.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A HYBRID AND VOLUME LOOK?

The difference between a hybrid and volume look is the amount of lashes used.

Hybrid lashes are made from a combination of hair-to-hair and volume lashes, providing an eye-catching, but not dramatic, look. Instead, volume lashes do not have hair-to-hair lashes, only volume lashes, giving a thicker look and generating an impact look.

WILL MY NATURAL EYELASHES FALL OFF WITH THE EXTENSIONS?

No. On average, people lose 1 to 5 natural lashes per day, therefore, that is the only time the extension will fall off with a natural lash.

WHAT ARE EYELASHES MADE OF?

I use 100% silk lashes.

CAN I GET A FACIAL TREATMENT WITH THE EYELASH EXTENSIONS ON?

I do not recommend it, as the steam can cause the adhesive to come off.

WHAT IF I WOULD LIKE REMOVE MY EYELASH EXTENSION?

I offer the eyelash extension removal service for $25, and it is pain free!

Before your appointment

1. Please arrive to your appointment on time and with no guests. 

2. Arrive to your session with no mascara or makeup around the eye area.

3. Remove your contact lenses prior to the session. The adhesive releases a chemical that is damaging to the lens.

4. Feel free to bring your headphones!

5. The studio gets cold so we recommend you bring your own jacket or blanket if needed!
