What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are an individually applied synthetic strands that provide length, curl and fullness. We offer two styles of extensions, Classic and Volume. The classic technique offers a natural look where as the volume techniques is more dramatic.
Will the application be harmful to my natural lashes?
No. Our expert Lash Technicians have been meticulously trained to apply lash extensions in a non-harmful way. They will assess your natural lashes in order to choose the correct length and thickness, carefully isolates the lashes, and use our top quality adhesives in order to prevent any possible damage to the natural lash.
In very rare occasions, clients may develop allergies to the adhesive. In this case we suggest to have the lashes removed and seek medical attention.
How long will a set of eyelash extensions last and how often do I need to get them filled?
Typically a full set will last up to 4 weeks, however this can vary depending on your life style and how well you take care of the lashes. To maintain a full look we suggest to have your lashes filled every 2-3 weeks on average. If you do not book a fill within the suggested time periods, you will be required to book a new full set.
Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing eyelash extensions?
Yes! Our adhesive is waterproof so you can shower, swim and exercise with your lashes extensions on. However, you must keep your lashes completely dry for 24 hours after application so the adhesive can cure. Getting your lashes wet within the first 24 hours can result in a weakened bond and premature lash fallout.
Can I use eyelash curlers with eyelash extensions?
No, we do not recommend using a mechanical or heated lash curler on your lash extensions. This can cause damage to your extensions and potentially cut your natural lashes. We carry lash extensions in many different lengths, curls and thicknesses, if you want more curl we can adjust your style during your fill. Every look is customized for you.

The applications process for a full set of lash extensions can take anywhere between 1.5 hours to 3 hours depending on which set you choose. Our refills are schedule by time, 45 minutes or 60 minutes for classic and 60 minutes or 90 minutes for volume.
How do I choose the look I want?
Every appointment includes a consultation so that you can discuss with your Lash Technician what look you are going for. They will assess your natural lashes to determine what length and curl is safe. Every clients lashes are different so your Lash Technician will take this into consideration when helping you choose a style.
