Eyelash Extensions

What are Eyelash extensions?

Eyelash extensions are artificial eyelashes applied to a person’s own lashes, used to enhance the appearance of one’s lashes.


The Extensions can be made from synthetic, mink, fur fibres or natural hair. Eyelash extensions last from 4 to 8 weeks, depending upon care.

How long do Eyelash extensions last?

The life span of an application depends on several factors:

  1. How well you protect your new eyelashes from external damage;
  2. How diligent you are about touching them or disturbing them;
  3. The quality of the adhesive and materials used and
  4. The homecare products you use.

The average life span of eyelash extensions is 4-8 weeks for most clients, but it can be longer for some clients, depending on what was already mentioned above.

How much do they cost, and how long does it take?

Eyelash extensions infill timeframes will depend on the type of lash used, length and amount of eyelashes applied per eye (most customers opt for 100% or 75%-25% fullness). Contact us for competitive pricing.

What can Eyelash extensions do for you?

Eyelash extensions are a way to give the illusion of longer, fuller eyelashes. They add a sense of definition to your eyes and highlight the face’s natural beauty. They also make it easy to achieve a glamorous look without mascara or eyeliner. You will be amazed at how natural they can look and feel.

Do Eyelash extensions ruin your natural lashes?

No, if done properly and if the homecare is done correctly eyelash extension will not affect your natural lashes. The extensions are applied one by one directly to the base of your own lashes. There is no damage to your natural eyelashes at any point in time during or after the application process. In fact, because you have less irritation on your eyes from mascara and getting rid of that morning eye-makeup step, your natural eyelashes grow healthier and longer.

How long does it take to perform Eyelash extensions?

Depending on the amount of applications needed per eye, an average application takes approximately up to 1 hour per eye. It can take longer if you prefer more dramatic results or naturally have more lashes than most people. It is recommended to come in for a consultation before deciding the exact length of time needed for your application.

How do I maintain my Eyelash extensions, and how often should I get them applied?

  1. Keep away from any eye-makeup removers (including oil-based or water-based), lotions, creams, hairspray etc.…because they can irritate your eyelids and damage your extensions.
  2. For those who regularly wear mascara, it is recommended to remove the mascara at night by gently rubbing it with a makeup remover designed for lash extensions to remove excess mascara before going to bed.
  3. It is essential to always use an oil-free product with your foundation, as using one that contains oil makes the eyelashes more prone to breakage.
  4. If you must use an eye-makeup remover, then put a few drops of makeup remover designed for lash extensions directly onto the cotton pad and wait 15-20 seconds; gently wipe/blot any excess mascara off of your natural lashes.
  5. When you wash your face at night, avoid getting water directly into your eyes-especially if you have had eyelash extensions put on in the past 24 hours. This can cause the adhesive to loosen and result in possible lash loss in some cases.
  6. If you ever notice the lashes seem heavy/irritated/itchy, come into our salon for a remover appointment where one of our technicians will remove
    them for you.
  7. If you must touch your eyelashes, remember to only do so with clean hands and use soft brushes/combs. Avoid using anything like a cotton swab or damaged brushes (like ones with a missing bristle).
