Gold and Platinum set eyelash extensions will 'look good' for approximately 3 weeks before needing a fill. If you do not receive a fill at this time, they will continue to shed and completely fall off by 4 – 6 weeks. Silver Set Eye Lash Extensions will 'look good' for approximately 2 weeks and be completely gone by 4 weeks, our Silver Set is great for individuals who do not wear any mascara at all. Note: your natural lashes shed 1-5 a day so if there is an extension on the lash that is about to shed it will take the extension with it as the extensions are applied to the hair and not the skin. The more Lash Extensions you have applied "Gold Set" or "Platinum Set" or our "Volume Sets", the less obvious lash shed appears as to when you have the "Silver Set" applied. These are averages only. Keep in mind that the strength and texture of your natural lash, and the aftercare of your Eyelash Extensions as well as lifestyle all play factors in the life of your Eyelash Extensions.
The application of lash extensions, when applied properly by a trained professional, will not cause hair loss, nor will it cause eyelashes to fall out. Remember that your natural lashes have their own life cycle of falling and growing. Again as mentioned earlier, average of 1-5 of your own natural lashes shed a day between both eyes. If an extension is applied to a lash that is about to shed it will take the lash extension with it as the lash extension is applied to the hair and not the skin. It’s hard to notice small lashes falling out, but when attached to a thicker, longer lash they definitely become much more noticeable! Once the extensions are removed, your own eyes may appear smaller, your natural lashes, shorter and sparser because you’ve been accustomed to a full set of longer, darker, thicker lashes.
Yes! Don’t have to worry about mascara running down your face! Eyelash Extensions will allow you the freedom of looking beautiful without having to spend the time every morning applying mascara. However if you’ve never tried it before you should have them applied at least 4 days before you leave for travel, just in case you happen to fall into the 1% of those who may have a reaction. For brides, we recommend you come in and try a "Silver Set", at least a month before your big day to decide on the look you want and to rule out any possible irritation. And then book a Platinum Set a few days prior to your big day.
Yes you may! As long as your wearing oil free eye makeup you will be okay, liquid liner, and shadow liner are all fine except for pencil liners as they contain oils that can loosen the bond of the adhesive which will cause your lashes to fall out sooner. Mascara is not recommended to be worn on ANY Volume Sets as it will close up the "fans". If you wear mascara on your Classic sets "Silver", "Gold", or "Platinum", just be aware that the life of your lash extensions may not last as long. Waterproof mascara is never to be worn on your extensions . There are mascaras specifically made to be worn on eyelash extensions which you can purchase at our boutique, even yet I still don’t recommend for that to be worn on a daily bases. If you are the type that loves to go dancing on the weekends and like to still wear a strip of lashes for the night please make sure that you glue them on your lid closets to your lash line and NOT on your lashes. I would hate to see you come back having ripped out your extensions and natural lashes due to you applying strip lashes over top.
