Q: Can I choose the length I want?
A: Yes. We have all different lengths, thickness, colors and even curls to choose from. Because they are single-bonded, your extensions are truly unique to you and can look however you prefer them.
Q: How long do they last?
A: The extensions will last as long as your natural lash (usually 4-6 weeks)but will
require fills (touchups) every few weeks.

A: The extensions require very little maintenance. You only have to avoid oil-based cleansers and facial products and schedule regular fill appts to keep them looking great!
Common Myths About Eyelash Extensions:
MYTH: Eyelash extensions make your natural lashes fall out
FACT: Your eyelashes are constantly growing and shedding, just like the hair on your head. An eyelash has a finite life of 60-90 days. They are supposed to fall out. Since they are at different stages of the growth cycle, most people lose 1-3 natural lashes per day on average and never notice it because lashes are so small. Properly applied eyelash extensions do not affect this natural growth cycle but you may notice the shedding more than before because your lashes are darker and thicker with the extensions attached.
MYTH: When my eyelash extensions came out, my natural lashes came with them.
FACT: In actuality, the reverse is happening: when your natural lashes grew out, they took the extensions with THEM! If good adhesive is used and proper technique is applied, eyelash extensions are designed to stay adhered to the natural lash until it grows out.
MYTH: I had eyelash extensions for awhile and after I had them removed, my natural lashes were shorter.
FACT: Properly applied eyelash extensions do not affect the growth of natural lashes before, during or after application. Most people get used to how they look with their eyelash extensions. When their extensions are gone, their natural lashes SEEM so much smaller and thinner because they aren’t used to seeing them bare. It’s a case of perception overriding reality. If you actually measure your lashes before and after, you would find no change.
Remember – the application of eyelash extensions is a highly skilled craft and should only be attempted by trained professionals. Always ask to see proof of training before you let anyone work on your eyes!
