Eyelash extensions are an exciting new way to extend the length and thickness of your eyelashes. They are applied on a hair-by-hair basis to your own eyelashes for a completely natural look.
Be sure to set aside at least two hours for your first appointment. A PrettyGirlsMakeFaces artist will meticulously apply the extensions one eyelash at a time, and there is no rush for your beautiful results!
Properly applied individual eyelash extensions on a one by one basis will not damage your natural lashes.
You do not need to be sensitivity tested because the glue doesn’t come into contact with your skin; the extensions are applied about 1mm off your natural lash line. Please feel confident that application causes no damage to your natural lashes.
That’s up to you! Everyone is unique so you could have natural looking lashes that look like two coats of the best mascara, or something longer, thicker and more dramatic. Either way, the look is based upon what you want and what your natural lashes can take, but will always mean something more luscious and lifted than you have now.
The average natural lash line has three lengths of lash, a very fine baby one that cannot take the weight of an extension, a mid-length lash that will be growing for another three to four weeks and a full length lash that could fall out at any time. It is estimated that we lose about 4-8 eyelashes per eye per day, usually it’s the longest lashes that shed to allow a new baby hair to come through. A good Eyelash Extension Technician is aiming to attach the lash extension to your mid-length lash to ensure a good 3-4 weeks of owning the lashes. Sometimes, if your lash growth is slow these last up to five weeks, it’s a very personal and we won’t know your lash cycle until you have owned and lived with them for a while. If you had a set applied and did nothing more, you could expect to lose the whole set within approximately 6 weeks. However you will want to maintain them in which case when you notice a decline thickness of your lashes it’s time for an infill, usually 3-4 weeks, to keep the lash line looking fabulous.
Something this desirable is going to take some looking after, so once you have your luscious lashes, here are my tops tips for keeping them looking fabulous:- For the first 48 hours avoid heat and steam, ie sauna/steam rooms and solarium and also no showers/potentially steamy bathrooms for 5 hours after treatment, to allow glue to fully bond.
Remember to come to your appointment free from any eye make-up we want to spend quality time applying your lashes.
Yes, with what I call a ‘Taster Set’ this uses a little under half of what a full set would be but gives you a good idea of what they feel like to wear, how easy they are to look after and how long they last with you.
Almost anyone can enjoy eyelash extensions, but if one or more of the following conditions applies to you, you may not be a good candidate for eyelash extensions:
