Will my natural lashes be damaged?
Amanda takes health and safety of the natural lashes very seriously. Inexperienced lash artists applying true single-strand eyelash extensions may make technical errors such as using too much adhesive, extensions that are too heavy, or attaching natural lashes to one another. Any of these errors can cause thinning of the natural lashes.
As an expert lash artist and lash educator, Amanda will assess the condition and health of your natural lashes and apply lashes best suited for your natural lashes.
Will they all fall out at the same time?
No, your natural lashes exist at different stages of maturity at any given time. Just like the hair on your head, your natural eyelashes shed on a daily basis based on their individual stage of growth. It is normal to lose 1-5 natural eyelashes per day, and so you will naturally shed extensions daily as well. Over the course of 2-3 weeks it is typical to gradually lose about 40-50% of your extensions and that is why we recommend returning for regular lash fills.
Will the application process hurt?
No. In fact, a lot of our clients refer to this time as their beauty rest or lash therapy session. This is a time for you to relax and de-stress in our calming environment. The process is comfortable, relaxing, and pain-free; many clients sleep through the majority of their application.
How are they attached?
Amanda is dedicated to using only highest quality products and lashes. Depending on the place of attachment along the eye line, an extension of appropriate length, thickness, and curl is selected, dipped in a tiny amount of surgical grade adhesive, and attached near the base of one natural eyelash, 1mm away from the skin. The extensions are applied to the lash, never on the skin, in order to achieve the best, longest-lasting result without risking complications arising from attachment to the eyelid.
Can I wear mascara and other eye makeup?
One of the greatest benefits of eyelash extensions is eliminating the need for mascara on a daily basis. Should you decide to use mascara we carry a mascara that is specifically formulated for lash extensions. If you receive a set of extensions using the Volume Technique, we recommend abstaining from using mascara.
How do I care for my eyelash extensions?
Caring for your eyelash extensions is surprisingly easy. Two main factors in keeping your lashes healthy and full are regular cleansing and being gentle with your extensions. We will give you more specific instructions and tips at the time of your service.
Can I swim, shower, exercise, surf, tan, and/or sauna?
For the most part, you can live your life as normal while wearing extensions. Prolonged and excessive exposure to heat, humidity, and water may lessen the life of your lashes, but will not make them fall off immediately. Some of our regular clients are fitness enthusiasts, and we recommend they return for fills every 2 weeks.
