Frequently Asked Questions
Classic vs. Volume
When deciding to get lash extensions, knowing the differences between classic and volume is important in choosing the appropriate style for yourself.
Classic lashing has been around for years and is the process in which one eyelash extension is applied to one natural lash. Classic lashing adds length and creates a very natural look. Classic lashes can have anywhere from 60-120 extensions per eye.
Volume lashing is a newer application of lashing and is the process where clusters of lashes are added to a single natural lash. Clusters can have anywhere from 2-6 extensions and are signified by 2D, 3D and so on. Volume lashing can have anywhere from 250-600 lash extensions.
How long do lashes last?
Eyelash extensions follow your natural lash shedding cycle. Although everyones lash cycle is different, it takes between 4-6 weeks for a lash to complete a full cycle. Fills are necessary anywhere in between two to four weeks. Proper aftercare is essential to the longevity of your extensions.
Will lash extensions ruin my natural lashes?
When applied by certified lash technicians, lash extensions should not, in any way, damage or jeopardize the health of your own lashes.
Can I wear mascara with my eyelash extensions?
When you have lash extensions you won't need to wear mascara. If you do decide to use it water based mascara is preferred. Oil based mascaras will dissolve the extensions bonding adhesive and your lash extensions will fall off at a faster rate.
Do lash extensions hurt?
The application should not hurt or iritate your eyes. The adhesive used to attach the lashes is especially designed to be used near eyes, though the fumes may cause some stinging or watery eyes, but this is not common if lashes are being applied by a professional.
