FAQs

WHAT ARE EYELASH EXTENSIONS?

Eyelash extensions are individual, synthetic silk eyelashes that are applied individually to your natural eyelashes with a medical grade adhesive. This means that each of your eyelashes will have one eyelash extension attached. This ensures that your natural lashes are treated properly and remain healthy.


WHAT ARE VOLUME EXTENSIONS?

Strong, healthy lashes can hold more than one eyelash each. Our True Volume™ lashes are light weight lashes designed to add volume across your lash line. Volume lashes are perfect for women who have sparse lashes or want a thick glam look.


HOW LONG DO EYELASH EXTENSIONS LAST?

Our lashes are designed to last as long as your natural lashes. When your lashes naturally shed, our synthetic lash goes with it. Most people need refills every 2 to 4 weeks depending on factors including your lifestyle, skin type, etc.


HOW CAN I MAKE MY EYELASH EXTENSIONS LAST LONGER?

Your lash artist will review aftercare instructions with you and suggest products that will help maintain your new eyelashes. Constantly rubbing your eyes or cleaning them vigorously will certainly decrease their longevity. Do not use any oil containing skincare products. 


HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO APPLY A FULL SET OF EYELASH EXTENSIONS?

A full application will take between 1.5 to 2.5 hours. Although the service requires extensive time, the result is definitely worth it. Eyelash Extension Refills take 45 minutes to an hour.


HOW MANY EYELASH EXTENSIONS ARE APPLIED ON EACH EYE?

Generally you will receive 30-60 or more extensions per eye depending on the number of natural lashes you have to attach to. The result is long, beautiful, and natural looking extensions.


WILL EYELASH EXTENSIONS MAKE MY EYELASHES FALL OUT?

Not if the eyelash extensions are applied correctly, but remember your natural lashes do shed every 30-120 days (according to proven studies). The Lash Artists are well trained in properly applying and removing eyelash extensions.


WHY SHOULD I INVEST IN EYELASH EXTENSION?

  4. No need for an eyelash curler
  5. Does not damage the natural lash

AFTERCARE

Now that you have beautiful lashes, please take note of these tips to maintain them. With proper care and fills, your eyelashes can last indefinitely.

  • Do not get your eyelashes wet for the first two hours.
  • Do not use a spa, sauna or pool for the first 24 hours. The extensions need that amount of time to properly bond.
  • Avoid pulling or rubbing your eyes.
  • Do not use eyelash curlers with your extensions. With proper application you will not need them.
  • ONLY use oil-free makeup remover. We carry several brands in our studio and also provide clients with a do-it-yourself eyelash wash. If your eyelashes are tangled or crossed over, use the Spoolie given to you during your appointment to gently brush them straight and put them in place. 
  • Proper hygiene is very important. Please keep lashes clean by regular washing. Special foaming eyelash cleansers are available for purchase at your appointment, or online. 
  • Use only mascaras that are safe for eyelash extensions, no oil-based or waterproof mascaras. Only apply the mascara to the tips of your lashes.  Extension safe mascaras are available for purchase at your appointment, or online. 
  • After showering avoid rubbing lashes, it best to blot them with a towel and let them air dry.
  • You can also dry the lashes by using a hair dryer on the cool setting and blowing them dry from the bottom up. It makes them curlier and fluffy.
  • Use care when applying facial and eye creams to avoid the lash line. Too many oil-based products can break down the adhesive.
  • iLash Beautique recommends touch-up appointments every two to four weeks to maintain your new eyelash extensions.
