Eyelash Extensions FAQs

What are Eyelash Extensions?

The eyelash extension procedure consists of having individual lashes adhered to your natural lash.

Classic eyelash extensions are applied 1:1 – one eyelash extension is adhered to one natural lash. You can achieve a natural (light set) to glam look (heavy set) with this method.

Volume eyelash extensions are applying multiple lashes to one natural lash. Volume lashes are ideal for clients with sparse lashes, or who want a much more glam and fluffy result.

Eyelash extensions are a fabolous way to enhance your overall look! Say goodbye to spending your morning loading coats of mascara to achieve the perfectly even, full look!

Do you use real or faux mink lash extensions?

We use high quality faux mink as we are against animal cruelty, and would not want to take the chance of allergens from real fur. The high quality faux mink lashes we use are soft and silky and designed to imitate real fur. Unlike real mink fur, if they get wet they will not lose their curl.

Does it hurt?

Eyelash extensions are pain free. Many clients come in and enjoy a nap during the application.

Will lash extensions ruin my natural lashes?

Your natural lashes will not be ruined as long as proper aftercare is practiced, and you come in for your necessary fills. It is important NOT to pull the lash extensions out on your own as this will cause damage to your natural lashes. If you wish to remove your lashes, set up an appointment to have them removed safely. LUXURY Lash and Browtique uses an adhesive that follow the highest standards of safety and quality. As your natural lash sheds, the extension sheds with it.

How long does the procedure take?

The full procedure for a full classic set takes approximately 2 to 2.5 hours.

The full procedure for a full volume set can take up to 3 hours.

The number of natural lashes a client has is a big factor to the time (more natural lashes = more time).

How long will they last for?

With proper aftercare, eyelash extensions can last up to 4 weeks, however as your lashes go through their normal growth cycle (losing 3-7 natural lashes per day), the lash extensions will shed approximately 4 to 6 weeks when your natural lash sheds.

Volume lashes tend to last longer as multiple lashes are wrapping around one natural lash, holding on tighter than classic.

We recommend booking a fill between 2 and 3 weeks to maintain fullness for your lashes.

Other factors that affect your extension life are the strength and texture of your natural lash, genetics, diet, supplements, and your lifestyle.

To prolong your eyelash extensions, we offer a lash sealant specifically made for eyelash extensions. This formula can be used daily to protect your lashes from elements that break down the adhesive. It is a MUST to properly wash your lash extensions with an eyelash extension safe shampoo/makeup remover. We also carry this in our salon. (see video under our SERVICES > EYELASH EXTENSIONS page)

Before the treatment

  • Do not use a mechanical eyelash curler the day of your appointment.
  • If you wear contacts, please bring solution and case.
