Lash extensions last through a full eyelash growth cycle, typically six to eight weeks. However, we don’t lose all of our lashes at the same time so in order to maintain a full look we recommend a fill every 2-4 weeks. Since everyone has a unique hair growth cycle, we will be better able to provide you with our recommendation after assessing your lashes during your appointment.
Applying a full set of lashes take anywhere from one and a half to three hours depending on your natural lashes and the desired look. Please find specific appointment times on our service page.
Use an oil- free makeup remover, ensuring your lashes are clean and all eye makeup has been removed. Any traces of oil or makeup create a barrier between the adhesive and your natural lashes and can cause the extensions to shed prematurely. Contacts will be removed before the appointment so bring your glasses if needed. Avoid coffee/caffeine in the hour leading up to your appointment.
Since we can’t guarantee the work of other salons, we do not perform lash fills on lashes that were not applied by a LashTechPro certified artist. If you are looking to become a client but still have some lashes on from a different studio, we are happy to provide a complimentary removal with the purchase of a full set.
If applied properly, eyelash extensions are safe and do not ruin the health of your natural lashes. All of our technicians are licensed estheticians. Our lash techs will select the appropriate extension weight and length to ensure the integrity of your natural lash stays intact. With the right aftercare and proper application technique, the only lash loss you will see will pertain to your natural hair growth cycle. Many people feel that their natural lashes get thinner or shorter after they stop applying lash extensions. In reality, you have been accustomed to waking up every day with thicker, darker, and longer lashes, so understandably, it’s going to be a bit of an adjustment to go back to natural lashes. The application of lash extensions has no chemical effect on the thickness or length of your natural lashes. When there is no longer a need for mechanical lash curlers and waterproof mascara, we actually see a tremendous improvement in previously damaged lashes. We do recommend the use of lash enhancing or vitamin serums to give your lashes a healthy boost in order to support any look you are hoping to achieve with extensions.
Most people are great candidates for lash extensions but there are a few exceptions. If you are going through chemotherapy, battling with an autoimmune disease, are pregnant/nursing or have a history of severe allergic reactions, you should consult with your physician prior to booking an appointment. In order to properly attach the extension, a straight host lash is necessary. If you have very severe bends, your lashes may not be viable for extensions. If you are questioning whether or not your lashes can handle extensions, we would be happy to schedule a complimentary consultation and provide you with our assessment.
Avoid getting your lashes wet for 12-24 hours after application, this includes spray tanning and sweating. Avoid oil-based products and makeup removers around the eye area. Refrain from using make-up wipes on the lashes. Pat your lashes dry after showering and use your spooly to brush them out. Many of our clients don’t feel the need to wear mascara on their lash extensions and while we don’t recommend mascara, always make sure to avoid water-proof if you must apply a coat.

We reserve up to an hour and 15 minutes for a lash lift and tint.
A lash lift should always be performed by a licensed esthetician or cosmetologist that has been properly trained. As long as the lift is performed by a professional and the proper steps are taken, there should be no impact to the health of your natural lashes.
That is just a matter of preference. If you have super strong natural lashes and are looking for something low maintenance and subtle, a lash lift may be the better option for you. We cannot create the illusion of length or volume with a lash lift, so it really depends on the look you are hoping to achieve.
Avoid coffee/caffeine in the hour leading up to your appointment.
