Eyelash extensions are individual, semi-permanent lashes of varying lengths, thicknesses, curvatures, and colours designed to attach to your own natural lashes to create longer, thicker, fuller and curlier eyelashes. Application is customized to meet your specific needs and style.

Volume Eyelash Extensions - customized hand made fans are designed and made for each natural eyelash and applied one by one to each individual natural lash.
Eyelash extensions are the hottest trend in the beauty industry. They are practical and convenient, and instantly give you the sexier, younger and refreshed-looking eyes. The look and feel are completely natural-looking and real. Experience the joy of waking up in the morning looking "done", as you will no longer need to curl or apply coats of mascara.
This will depend on several factors, the biggest one is how well you maintain your lashes. To maintain your lashes fill appointments are necessary every 2 - 4 weeks to replace the lashes that have shed or own grown naturally. We always advise that after the initial set of extensions a fill should be done at 2 weeks as they may have lost or shed more than normal due to the time of their shed cycle.
Eyelash extensions are made of a synthetic silk and synthetic mink. They are soft, lush fibres with a high gloss finish. Eyelash extensions are thicker at the base and taper to a fine point. They come in various lengths, thicknesses, curls, colours and styles in order to provide each woman with a unique and realistic look.
Eyelash extensions will not harm or cause damage to your natural lashes because they are individually applied to your natural lashes using a specially formulated bonding material. The bonding material used is a quality adhesive that contains ultra-low quantities of formaldehyde which, at ultra low levels, is considered negligible and non-harmful. Most eyelash extension adhesives contain cyanoacrylate which makes the solution fast bonding, and carbon black which is for the dark mascara-like colour.
Eyelash Extensions are not FDA approved because they do not come in contact with your skin. They are applied to your natural lashes and 1mm away from your skin to be able to follow the growth and bloom of your own lashes. Applying eyelash extensions require skill and precision. Extensions should only be applied by a certified and trained eyelash professional.
Your natural eyelashes shed and go through a natural growth cycle. This cycle is predetermined by our genes, as well as our health and other factors. The average "lash life" is about 60 to 100 days and undergoes three growth phases.
Your individual eyelash enters each phase at various times. When your natural eyelashes mature and fall out, new lashes have already started growing. Eyelash extensions are applied to the lashes that are in the middle growth phase because they can support the length and weight of the extensions, and will prolong the amount of time they will last without interrupting the health of new lashes. When properly applied and cared for, eyelash extensions will last between 3 to 5 weeks. As your own lashes shed, expect to lose some extensions as well.
Anyone can enjoy the benefits of eyelash extensions. However, not everyone is an ideal candidate. If the following conditions pertain to you, this service is not recommended:
The application process is very relaxing, just like receiving a spa service. You will lie back on a plush table and have your eyes closed the entire time. The application is very gentle and can be best described as though someone is gently brushing through your lashes. The service generally takes between 60 to 120 minutes to apply a full set and refills can be done in as little as 45 to 60 minutes.
To maintain your eyelash extensions, touch ups are recommended every 2-4 weeks to keep your lashes looking full and beautiful.
We recommend that you have a consultation prior to making your first appointment. You will also be asked to complete a client intake and consent form. On the day of your scheduled appointment, please be sure to:
Even though eyelash extensions are easy to maintain, proper care and maintenance will maximize the life of your lash extensions. Certain activities can weaken the adhesive bond and result in premature loss of your lash extensions.
Mascara is not needed with eyelash extensions since the extensions give the illusion of wearing mascara. If you decide to wear mascara, it must be water-based. Oil-based or waterproof mascara will shorten the lifespan of your eyelash extensions. Make sure to apply the mascara from the middle of your lash to the tip; avoid the root area.
Do not attempt to remove the eyelash extensions on your own as this can cause damage to your natural lashes. If you need, or want them removed, come in and let us professionally remove them. Otherwise, you can let the eyelash extensions slowly gall out by themselves, which typically takes about two months.
Natural lash growth products containing peptides will have no adverse effect on the longevity of your extensions. Growth products containing steroids will change the composition of your natural lashes and accelerate your natural growth cycle.
