Each natural lash is isolated one by one and a single extension (or volume fan) is applied. The extension is glued only to the natural lash and never to the skin.
Clients are encouraged to book fill appointments every 2-3 weeks. Each person will vary depending on individual retention and lash growth cycles. Maintaining a proper cleaning routine will assist in better retention.
No. Lashes shed on a natural growth cycle. Otherwise, after making so many wishes on fallen lashes, we'd all be lashless! If you notice a fallen extension with a natural root attached, don't panic, this means you natural lash has shed with the extension attached. The extensions did not "pull out" your natural lash.
There are several different variables that can cause premature shedding. Factors such as weather, level of activeness, skincare products, high heat/steam, natural body oils, etc. Each individual lash has it's own shedding cycle, occasionally, shedding cycles can sync causing multiple lashes to shed at the same time. Nothing to fear, your lashes are still growing, you just have more baby lashes in their beginning growth stage. Accidental premature exposure to water, steam, or excessive humidity, is another possibility. This type of early exposure (before the 24 hr curing period) can hinder the curing process, therefor not allowing the perfect glue bond between extension and natural lash to form.
If you are unhappy with the look of your lashes after your appointment, please let us know! If it has to do with the style/length, we will do our best to find the correct solution for you. If you prefer to just have them removed, we can offer a removal service free of charge within 5 days of your lash application. Unfortunately, we cannot issue a refund on the original service.
If you have a reaction, please inform us. Try applying coconut oil in the case of mild symptoms (light itching/redness) to potentially diminish irritations. If the symptoms subside, we can discuss further actions. If the symptoms are more severe, please contact a medical professional. As technicians, we are not able to perform removals on clients showing symptoms as it is not safe to further apply chemicals. Once you have been consulted with a medical professional and the symptoms have cleared, we can only then safely perform a removal.
Yes, we have several options and substitutions to help avoid irritations if you have any concerns. We will do our best to find the best combination for you!
Hybrid and volume lash appointments are more expensive because they not only require more time to complete, but also the mastery of a different technique. Volume fans are created by hand during the appointment and applied directly to the natural lash one by one. Creating the perfect volume fan takes time, patience, and precision. Only fans that "pass the test" are applied during your appointment to be able to achieve the perfect fluffy look!
Once you have lash extensions you will quickly realize upon first glance that you won't need mascara! If you still wish to use some on the days nearing your next fill, it's best to use a product approved for lash extensions. As far as makeup, stay away from gel/pencil eyeliners. These are products made with a waxy/petroleum base causing lashes to harden and clump together as well as breaks down the glue bond. Liquid liners and powder eyeshadows make a much better pairing with your shiny new lash extensions! Oh....and don't forget to only use oil free makeup removers!
