Eyelash extensions are an exciting new way to extend the length and thickness of your natural eyelashes. Lash extensions are single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. They are applied to each individual natural eyelash one by one for a natural, beautiful and luscious look..
Properly applied extensions should last as long as your natural lash life cycle, anywhere from 2-3 weeks depending on the individual and their day to day routine. Aftercare is the key to longevity. A refill every 2-3 weeks is required to maintain your initial full set look.
Lashes are applied while you are lying down with your eyes closed in a cozy, warm spa bed. This beauty rest can take anywhere from 2-3 hours for a full set, depending on the set of lashes you desire. After cleaning and priming your lashes, your bottom lashes are protected with an anti-aging eye pad and then lash extensions are applied. It is a very relaxing, non-invasive procedure and most clients fall asleep.
Mascara is not really required since the extensions actually give the illusion of wearing mascara. In fact, one of the many benefits of eyelash extensions is that you do not need to use mascara. If you must apply mascara, however, only use water-based mascara. DO NOT USE OIL-BASED OR WATER-PROOF MASCARA as they can dissolve the bonding agent used and they can shorten the life of your eyelash extensions. Use care when washing off the water-based mascara and only use a water based eye makeup remover.
Not at all! Our eyelash extensions are applied on your own natural eyelashes one by one (without touching the skin) with a specially designed bonding agent developed exclusively for eyelash extension. This new technique is not harmful to your natural eyelashes. The adhesive dries very soft on lashes allowing flexibility and comfort.
We do not recommend using mechanical eyelash curlers on your eyelash extensions, as these curlers will damage the extensions and possibly your own natural lashes. The extensions do have a natural curl so most people find they do not need to curl them further.
We carry many different degrees of curl, thickness, and lengths. Our process is 100% customized and non-damaging. A master esthetician or cosmetologist will examine the health of your natural lashes and consult with you about your desired length, shape, and curl before gently applying high-end individual synthetic extensions.
Yes, at any time, for any reason! If you have had an improper eyelash extension application somewhere other then Lash Effect, or simply wish to remove them. It is a simple service that doesn’t take long. We have a specially formulated removal solution that will break down the glue and safely remove your extensions without damaging your natural lash. Please do not attempt to remove the lash extensions yourself, as this will cause premature pulling out of your natural lashes.
Yes! Since lash extensions do not touch your skin, they do not conflict or interfere with your contacts or normal daily activities.
You should thoroughly clean your lashes with a mild cleanser. Do not use oily makeup remover to clean your lashes prior to the application. Lashes should not be curled (unless directed otherwise by your technician) and all mascara should be removed.
