What are eyelash extensions?
Is a professional application of an individual synthetic eyelash applied directly to each of your own natural eyelashes. Each extension is bonded with a medical grade bonding adhesive. There are many thicknesses, lengths and styles of eyelash extensions ensuring each client can create a look that can blend with their own lashes and lifestyle.
How long do eyelash extensions last?
Lash extensions are semi-permanent. Each extension will be bonded to your natural lash until it sheds. Each life cycle of a single hair ranges between 90-120 days. On a daily basis we each lose 1-4 lashes. Therefore it is recommended to come in within 2-4 weeks to replace lashes that have shed to keep a full lash line.
