Applying eyelash extensions should be painless, gentle, and relaxing. The client lies down comfortably on the massage table with their eyes closed, and the technician applies single lash extensions to each individual eyelash. The process takes 2 hours for a full set, and we allow a break half way through if needed.
Depending upon the client’s natural lash consistency, a full set takes approximately 2 hours for unlimited extensions applied. Touch-ups take 60 to 90 minutes depending on how well the clients natural lash holds the extensions.
Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent and designed and customized to enhance the eyes with a more voluminous, beautiful, and youthful look. Individual extensions are skillfully and meticulously adhered to your natural lashes—one extension to one natural lash at a time. Each single extension is carefully placed on your natural lash with medical grade adhesive. Eyelash Extensions enhance your overall appearance—giving you the benefits of high-quality mascara with a more voluminous look. They are weightless, lustrous, and look like your own—only better.

How often do I need to get my lashes touched up?
To maintain the full look touchups are recommended every two to five weeks. Lashes naturally shed at the end of a hair cycle (30-90 days). When over 80 percent of extensions have shed, a full set will be required. Clients with oil-prone skin will require touchups sooner because natural oils will disrupt bonding of the extensions. It's important not to be alarmed when you see an extension shed with an eyelash attached to it. This is a natural process and shows you that your extensions were applied correctly by allowing your lashes to shed as they normally would.
Can I wear mascara?
Mascara isn’t necessary, but it’s okay to apply between touch ups. Some ingredients mascaras contain may break down the adhesive or make it more difficult to properly clean the lash line. This is why we only recommend mascara when a touch up is drawing near and to also avoid waterproof if possible. If you continue to use mascara on a daily basis touch up appointments will be necessary every 2 to 3 weeks.
How long do clients wear their extensions?
Some clients request lash extensions for a special occasion or for vacation trips only. Most clients wear extensions on a regular basis for several years with touch-ups every few weeks. With a proper application technique, the health of natural lashes can be maintained with years of extension wear.
How many extensions are applied for each application?
Are there any activities I should avoid with eyelash extensions?
This varies for each client based on several factors, including the amount of natural lashes the client has, and the fullness they desire. For the classic look, most eyes generally have 75+ lashes applied to each eye. For a more glamorous set of lashes, as many as 125+ extensions may be applied per eye. If the volume/multilash technique is used anywhere from 200-700 lashes PE may be applied.
You should avoid excessively touching your lashes and try not to sleep directly on your lashes. But otherwise you can shower, swim, surf, snorkel and enjoy everyday life without worry.
Why is it important to have a licensed professional work on my lashes?
Always have a trained and certified professional work on your lashes so that you can prolong the health of your lashes for extension wear. Make sure your trained professional is a certified lash extensionist. Lash extensions should NEVER hurt or look clumped together.
Can I get my extensions wet?
For years, women with lash extensions were told not to get their lashes wet for 24 hours. But Lash Studio lashes can get wet right after the application! We use the most cutting edge technology to cure the lashes before you walk out our door. This minimizes reactions and irritations as well as avoiding potential allergic reactions.
