Volume lashes are a newer and more innovative technique where multiple extensions are attached to one lash to give more dimension and texture. They provide a fuller look and require more skill. Technicians usually create custom fans of multiple lashes to put on each hair
The Hybrid technique is a combination of two different lash application techniques rolled into one set of lashes. For example; individual classic Extend, one false lash extension on one isolated natural lash combined with Russian Volume, multiple lash extensions on one natural lash.
A classic set is when only one extension is glued to each natural lash. It adds length and thickness and is great for people who already have a fair amount of lashes.
When applied properly, eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes.The extensions can stay up to two full months with proper care. Everyone's experience will differ based on day to day activities but over all, fills should only be required every 2 to 4 weeks.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU NEED FILLS?
We recommend getting a touch up every 2 to 3 weeks. If you wait too long your eyelash extensions will all fall out and you will require a full set. Your natural eyelashes fall off every 45 - 60 days due to the natural growth cycle and are naturally replaced with the growth of a new eyelash. Other factors such as exposure to steam or touching your eyes a lot may cause the extensions to fall sooner. A touch up is needed to fill in any lashes that have fallen out. A Refill averages about 45 minutes
CAN I WEAR MASCARA?
Yes, even though mascara is not really required since the extensions actually give the illusion of wearing mascara it can be worn.. It must however only be WATER-BASED MASCARA. DO NOT USE OIL-BASED OR WATER-PROOF MASCARA. Waterproof mascara or any type of oil based mascara can dissolve the bonding agent and shorten the life of your eyelash extensions causing them to fall out sooner. Care also needs to be taken in washing off the mascara. Only use a water based eye makeup remover.
CAN I EXERCIZE, SWIM OR GO TO THE SPA WITH EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
Yes. The bonding agent we use is waterproof and allows you to shower, swim, exercise etc. Special care is required but overall maintenance is low. We do recommend however that you do not wash your eye area for about 24 - 48 hours after the eyelash application.
DO EYELASH EXTENSIONS DAMAGE YOUR NATURAL LASHES?
No. Not at all! The lash adhesive is formulated to create a solid bond, specifically for human lashes. The adhesive dries very soft on the lashes, allowing the lashes to stay flexible and bouncy just like your own lashes. The application process is pain-free and so relaxing that most clients fall asleep during the procedure. However, improper application by an unqualified eyelash technician can cause damage to your natural lashes.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO APPLY EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
The application process for eyelash extensions normally takes anywhere from 45 min - 1 hour depending completely on if you require a new set or fill. You will lay comfortably on a massage table with your eyes closed. I will then apply an under eye gel pad to cover your lower lashes . Then the extensions will be applied to each individual eyelash on a hair by hair basis.
HOW DO I CHOOSE WHAT LOOK I WANT?
Eyelash extensions are available in a number of lengths and thickness. We normally consult with you first to see what type of style you are interested in. We also determine what your lashes can hold in regards to size. Each person's lashes will vary in strength and length. We take this into consideration when creating a look for you. The overall look of the lashes is very natural even with the Extreme Glamour Look
