What are the artificial lashes?

Lashes are made of a synthetic material. Their form very much resembles natural lashes, at the base they are thicker and the tips — thinner. The difference is that the artificial lashes are much longer and fuller. When applying the lashes, the artificial lash is glued to the natural lash, one at a time.

Who gets lash extensions?

Lash extensions have been very popular with and loved by models and actors for many years, however, recently extensions are made available also for the general public. These days, both men and women wear extended lashes around the world not only for special events, but also in every day life, thanks to the convenience and carefree wearing.

Can anyone wear extensions?

People whose lashes are missing due to illness, scarring or chemotherapy cannot get lash extensions.

What types of extendable lashes are available?

The basic choices are black and brown, however also blue, purple, green, orange, plum pink  and even red lash color is available. Various lengths are available, beginning from 8mm up to 15mm. And various thickness — 0.15 mm, 0.17 mm and 0.20 mm. By varying the length we can make your look deeply conservative or amazingly glamorous.

How long does the procedure take?

The first time application always takes longer, because at that time we consult with you about the lash size, type and number of lash applications, therefore the procedure will take at least 2 – 3 hours. The touch–up procedures will take 1,5 – 2 hours.

How long will the extensions last?

It depends on growth speed of your natural lashes. On average, the human eye lash growth duration is 3 months, and that is how long the applied eyelashes will hold on. It does not mean that you do not need to care about the lash extensions for three months. To keep the lashes look perfect, you need to touch–up the extensions every 3 – 4 weeks — to apply additional lashes where your natural lashes have fallen out, or to remove or reapply those extensions that have altered in length or are dislocated.

How often should touch–ups be performed?

In case if you have gotten lash extensions for a single occasion, then you will need to remove them at a professional master when you decide to do so, however, if you want your eyes to look perfect — not later than 4 weeks after the initial application. On other hand, if you want to wear the lash extensions permanently, then the first touch–up (correcting and reapplying lashes that have fallen out or been damaged) should be performed not later than within 4 weeks after the initial application.

How do I care for my lash extensions?

No special care is necessary for the extended lashes. They are relatively durable. We only suggest not to rub or pull them, and not to use oily eyelid creams. Also, be careful with makeup removers.

Can I do sports and go tanning?

We do not suggest that you go swimming within first 48 hours after this procedure, because during that time, the glue fixates completely and exposure to water can make the glue fragile. Later, when swimming, attending sauna or sweeping downhill on skis, the lashes will not fall out, just remember, the less you affect the lashes physically, the longer they will hold on.

Can I use mascara?

If you have reached the desired result by extending your lashes, there will be no need to put on mascara. If you still feel the need to apply mascara, make sure it is water based mascara, but definitely do not use water resistant mascara.
It’s advisable to use mascara specially produced for eyelash extentions. We offer for sale this mascara to our clients in black and blue color.

How much does it cost?

Since the lash extension procedure is new and exclusive, the prices depend on where you get the extensions (at a salon or client's home) and what kind of materials are being used.

Please take a look at our prices.

Is lash extension procedure harmless for my health?

Yes, it is! The artificial lashes are made of materials that are harmless to human health. The glue does not come into contact with the skin as it is in cases when artificial lashes are glued to the eyelid. The lash itself does not get harmed, because the extension is applied to the natural lash and falls out together with it when the life span of the natural lash has come to end. Only unprofessionally attached lash can do harm, i.e., in case if single extension is applied to more than one natural eyelash. In such case, when one of natural lashes fall out, it will take more along with it.

Another thing that can harm the natural lash is a habit of scrunching and twisting it. Thus, the fastening part can be damaged and the natural lash can break. But you need to understand that no matter even if all of the lashes would break and fall out due to that habit, they would still grow back as thick and long as you used to have before.

You should trust this procedure only to a professional who performs lash extension procedures on a daily basis. That will guarantee you the desired result and will not harm your health.
