What are individual eyelash extensions?
They are long-lasting eyelashes made from synthetic materials. Extensions are applied directly to the natural lash, using medical-grade, semi-permanent adhesive. This gives natural lashes the appearance of being thicker and longer.
What can I expect during the procedure?
The best way to look at the procedure is as one to three hours of pampering and relaxation. The time variance depends on the desired lash look.Touch-ups take about 45 to 90 minutes. Your natural lashes will need to be completely free of all make-up and oil-based products – in fact, it's best to come with no make-up on at all. Your eyes will be closed and protected the whole time. Most people even fall asleep during the procedure.
How long will lash extensions last?
When cared for properly, lash extensions will adhere for the entire cycle of hair growth, which is about six to eight weeks, depending on the individual. Of course, if you pull the synthetic lash, it will come off as well. Natural eyelashes are shed on a regular basis, which may result in multiple extension loss on any given day. This is completely normal, and when the natural lash is shed, the synthetic lash will fall with it. Touch-up applications will be necessary every two to four weeks to maintain a full lash line.
What should I do to care for my extensions after they're applied?
There are a few simple steps to follow to keep synthetic eyelashes looking beautiful. First, do not cleanse eyes, shower, swim or use a steam or dry sauna for approximately 24 hours after application. Always be gentle with the lashes, and refrain from using an eyelash curler. Avoid all oil-based make-up products and eye make-up remover. Chances are, if you are having problems with their eyelash extensions it's because of your make-up remover – just use non-oil-based products, and to treat your lashes gently. It's best to remove make-up with a soft cotton ball to protect the lashes. Additionally, you should avoid using mascara after extensions are applied.
Can I wear lash extensions if my natural lashes are tinted or dyed?
The answer is yes, but since the extensions are black, your lashes probably won't need to be tinted. Wait 24hrs to apply extensions to tinted lashes.
Is the product safe?

What if I have a sensitivity to the glue?
Who will be applying my extensions?
Although the vast majority of people will have no reaction whatsoever to the adhesive glue used during the procedure, their may be the rare case of itchy, dry eyes accompanied by swelling. If you experience this reaction, use OTC product, Benadryl. A prescription cream medication can be used such as Desoximetasone. It is always best to seek medical attention if needed.
