WHAT HAPPENS DURING A LASH EXTENSION APPOINTMENT?
You and Susan will determine the right length, thickness and curl of lashes to apply to your own lashes. You’ll then get to lie down on the treatment bed and take a nap. Many clients think of it as their special time in which they can unwind, and consider the treatment a sanctuary and brief respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. At the end of your appointment, you’ll get to be amazed and wowed at the miraculous transformation your eyelashes have undergone in just a short amount of time – you won’t be able to stop looking at them and fluttering them.
HOW LONG DOES THE APPOINTMENT TAKE?
The appointment can last anywhere between 2 and 2.5 hours for classic full sets and first-time appointments. Refills can take between 45 minutes and 1.5 hours. Please set aside enough time so that you are not in a rush.

HOW LONG DO EYELASH EXTENSIONS LAST?
When applied by a skilled lash artist, lash extensions should stay attached to your natural eyelash right up until it sheds as part of the natural shedding cycle (don’t worry, every time you shed an eyelash, a brand new baby one is ready to take its place). The shedding cycle for lashes is about 60 days for most people, however, each lash will be in a different part of its growing cycle at any given time, so some lashes will be closer to the point of shedding compared to others that still have several weeks before they will fall out. As a result, to maintain your lashes, you’ll need to come in every 2-3 weeks for a fill to keep your lash extensions looking full and glamorous.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET REFILLS/TOUCH-UPS?
We recommend you book in for a refill every 2-3 weeks to maintain your eyelash extensions. If you leave too long between refills, too many of your lashes will fallen out for us to maintain the look, and in that case, we’d have to book you in for a full set again. Your natural eyelashes fall off every 60 – 90 days due to the natural growth cycle and are naturally replaced with the growth of a new eyelash. When the eyelash falls out naturally, so will the attached extension and the eyelash that has grown in its place will need a new lash extension.
WHAT KIND OF ADHESIVE DO YOU USE?
The adhesive is supplied by Xtreme Lashes, and it is regularly cited by industry, media and lash artists as the best adhesive on the market.
CAN I WEAR EYE MAKEUP OR MASCARA WITH MY EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
You can wear eye makeup and mascara, but you need to make sure any products you use around your lash extensions are water based, and not oiled based. Oil based products will loosen the bond between the natural lash and the lash extension and as a result, it will fall out sooner.
DO LASH EXTENSIONS DAMAGE YOUR NATURAL LASHES?
When applied by a skilled and properly trained lash artist, they will make sure that they only use lash extensions that are capable of being supported by your natural lash, selecting a suitable lash for each of your individual lashes, and they will make sure that each lash extension is affixed to a single lash – the lash horror stories you hear about in the media are the result of poorly trained lash technicians who apply lashes that your natural lash is unable to support, and/or they will rush and affix a single extension to more than one lash. This is a disaster just waiting to happen as each lash grows at a different rate, so when one lash grows after than the others, the lash extension will pull and tug at the others, resulting in damage.
CAN I GO SWIMMING WITH MY EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
Of course! And best of all, you’ll have none of the problems of the alternatives to eyelash extensions like mascara that has run. Your lashes will look just as amazing after your swim as they did before.
HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MY EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
DO wash your eyelash extensions with a cleanser that is oil-free.
DON’T sleep face down.
DON’T use any oil based products around your eyelashes – oil will weaken the bond between your natural lash and the extension.
