What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are lightweight, tapered lashes of varying lengths (6mm-17mm), thickness and curl designed to attach to your natural lashes. We use a combination of high-quality Novalash (synthetic) and mink lashes to create a customized look for each client.
Will eyelash extensions damage my natural lashes?
Eyelash extensions won’t damage your lashes as long as they’re properly applied by a trained and certified lash technician that’s using premium products. The Novalash adhesive we use is physician developed, medical-grade, non-irritating and formaldehyde free.
How long do eyelash extensions last?
Typically, clients come back every 3 to 4 weeks for a touch up, but several factors contribute to the duration of your lashes such as: the quality of the products being used, your natural lash growth cycle, excessive moisture and improper care (such as rubbing your eyes). Candied lashes also don’t last as long as our other products.
You can extend the duration of your lashes with the Novalash After Care Kit which includes: the Novalash Mascara which is safe to use with your extensions, Conditioner Cleansing Pads and an extra mascara wand for cleaning and separating your lashes.
*Please remember to return for a fill before 50% of your lashes fall out, otherwise you’ll be billed for a full set.
Can you tell me more about the eyelash application? How long will it take?
Lashes are applied while you are lying down with your eyes closed in a warm spa bed. After cleaning and priming your lashes, your bottom lashes will be secured gently with anti-aging eye pads, then lash extensions are applied individually with medical-grade adhesive. Eyelash application generally takes between 60 to 120 minutes to apply a full set, while a simple lash fill can be done in as little as 30 to 60 minutes.
What should I do before my appointment?
How do I care for my eyelash extensions?
How do I remove eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions must be removed by a trained and certified Eyelash Technician. The process is quick, painless and won’t harm your natural lashes.
Who shouldn’t wear eyelash extensions?
What makeup can I use with eyelash extensions? Is mascara okay?
Normal use of eye makeup is fine, but you should not use oil-based or waterproof mascara or eyeliner. Most mascara will shorten the life of your eyelash extensions causing them to fall out sooner. Care must also be taken when removing makeup. Do not use any products that contain oils – these will weaken the adhesive bond and cause eyelash extensions to fall off prematurely.
If you'd like to use mascara, we recommend the specially formulated Novalash mascara since it’s safe and won’t affect the adhesive.
Can I use an eyelash curler?
Eyelash curlers are unnecessary since eyelash extensions are already curled and a curler may potentially damage your lashes.
If I need lashes for a special event, when should I get them done?
If you've never had eyelash extensions before, we recommend getting a full set 2-4 weeks beforehand, then getting a fill shortly before the event. This provides enough time to determine if you’re in love with your new lashes or you’d like adjustments to be made.
