What are Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash Extensions are a revolutionary new product that lengthen and thicken your natural eyelashes. Eyelash Extensions are single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural lash. They are applied to individual eyelashes, one lash at a time, for a natural, elegant and luscious look. Eyelash Extensions are perfect for special occasions as well as for every day wear.
Why should I get Eyelash Extensions?
Lash extensions instantly define and open your eyes up, even without make up on. They are also great for ladies who can’t wear mascara or don’t have time in the morning to apply mascara. They are safe in swimming pools, spas and saunas. Despite being weightless and natural looking, your lashes appear longer, thicker and fuller. We let our clients decide on their desired look – some people want a very natural, subtle look where others prefer a more glamorous, dramatic look. We absolutely love the ‘Glam’ look.
How long do they last?
Your new set of Eyelash Extensions will usually last from 2-6 weeks if they are well looked after. Remember, this is a semi-permanent beauty service and will not last 2+ months as some salons claim. Our natural lashes have a life cycle of around 25-28 days, so as our real lash grows and falls out, the synthetic lash goes with it. Usually our clients get their lashes refilled every 2-3 weeks to maintain a full glam look. See our Beauty Services Menu for Refill prices.
If your hair and nails grow quite quickly, then this is usually an indicator that your lashes are growing, shedding and renewing themselves quite quickly also so you may find that your lash extensions won’t last as long as someone who has slower hair growth. Your lifestyle and job will also make a difference in how long they will last; for example, someone working in a hot steamy kitchen may not get as long out of their lash extensions compared to someone working in an air-conditioned office.
I had Eyelash extensions applied a few days ago and a few lashes have fallen out – why?
As explained above, the lash has a growth cycle and unfortunately it is hard to determine which lash is ready to fall out naturally so it is unpredictable when applying the synthetic lashes. Each day we can lose 3-5 natural lashes, so when eyelash extensions are applied we are more aware of when they shed as we know the extensions are there plus they are longer, darker and thicker. If you sleep on your stomach with your face squashed into the pillow or you favour sleeping on one side you may notice the lashes may not last as well as the other side.
