How long will Lashes last?

  • When properly applied and cared for, your eyelash extensions will last for 2-4 weeks. Please see the aftercare section on how to properly care for your eyelash extensions to maximize longevity.

Can I use a lash growth products?

  • Lash growth products that contain steroids change the composition of your lashes and accelerate your eyelash shedding cycle, therefore we cannot guarantee the outcome. Natural lash growth products containing peptides are wonderful and will have no adverse effect on the longevity of your extensions. If you choose to use a serum, please use a water based serum. 

Eyelash Extension Allergies

  • One of the common worries people have is that they will be allergic to the lashes or the glue. Sometimes in the spring or fall people will report back to their lash technicians that they are allergic to the lashes or glue – they’re experiencing tenderness, irritation and/or swelling. This can even happen to people who have eyelash extensions and have never had an allergic reaction.

  • This can be scary, especially since most people assume it was the lashes or glue which caused the sensitivity. But actually that is almost never the case! Both the lashes and the glue used by any qualified technician have been carefully designed and tested by scientists and beauticians alike to ensure that even sensitive skin types will not be irritated or affected.  Before you have any lash artist apply lashes, be sure to ask them whether any of their products contain latex or formaldehyde, which are used in some glues and can be causes of reactions or irritations.  As long as they are free of those ingredients, you will be good to go!
