FAQs – Frequently asked questions for lash extensions that you should know before you book an appointment .
Eyelash Extension is an advanced technique that enhances the curliness, fullness and thickens of natural eyelashes. The lash extensions will be bonded to single natural lash to create a beautiful look. There are two different types of eyelash extensions: Classic set and volume set.
Here are some frequently asked questions for Lash Extensions that you should know before you book an appointment.
For our classic Eyelash Extensions, we will apply a single eyelash extension to a single natural lash and extends the length of the natural eyelash; thus it’s called Eyelash Extensions.
Volume Eyelash extensions is a method of applying multiple thin, light and fan out eyelash extensions (usually people prefer this to a Russian Volume Eyelash Extensions) to a single natural eyelash which will give your eyelash more volume and depend on what you want, we can also extend the length of your natural lash by applying a longer eyelash extension.
At Beauty Time our Volume count is based on how many extensions we use on a single natural eyelash, and the method of application is Russian Volume Method. So you’ve booked a 3D set and are wondering what the difference between 3D and 4D is.
The differences are for the 3D you will get 3-4 thin and soft eyelash extensions applied on a single natural lash.
For the 4D you will get the same material. But instead of 3-4 now you receive 4-5 soft eyelash extensions applied on a single natural lash which creates more volume than 3D.
For the Russian Volume set, it’s the same excellent material used for 3D and 4D. But instead of 3-4 or 5-6, it will be 6-10 eyelash extensions on one natural lash which creates a more dramatic look.
However, due to the number of extensions that we apply in the Russian set, we will examine your lashes to determine if your natural lash is in excellent condition. If your lashes are no in the best state, we will not proceed to avoid damaging your natural lash.
Our Eyelash extensions are high-quality synthetic Mink – a soft plastic used to replicate Mink.
The reason why we are not using Mink for our Eyelash Extensions service is, a lot of people have an allergic reaction to real Mink and animal furs. Since these extensions are near to our client’s eyes, we would like to eliminate most if not all possibilities of an allergic reaction for our clients.
Before your eyelash extensions appointment is to take place, try to reach the studio without wearing any kind of makeup on the eyes. Don’t curl your eyelashes or put on mascara the day preceding the day of the appointment. It will help to reduce the time taken for cleanup and give us more time for the actual eyelash extensions process.
While keeping the development cycle of eyelashes in mind during the application process, our stylists are trained to search for fully grown eyelashes which they can connect with the synthetic ones. The smaller lashes are left to develop on their own.
At the next refill, we will have a new lash on which to apply your extensions.
Eyelash Extensions won’t make your natural eyelashes fall out. Keep in mind that your natural eyelashes have a life cycle of growing and shedding like the hair found on the rest of your body. It’s difficult to see little eyelashes falling out. However, when connected to a thicker, longer lash they are considerably more perceptible.
Eyelash extensions are applied while you rest on a comfortable spa bed with minimal hassle. Generally, it takes about 1.5 hours for a full installation of eyelashes. But can vary depending upon the volume of your natural eyelash.
Before installing the lashes, your base lashes are secured with a gel eye cushion. Lash augmentations are connected 1-to-1 or many to one eyelash with medical grade adhesive. It is an extremely comfortable, non-intrusive treatment and the majority of our customers relax, take a break or fall asleep.
The eyelash extensions are going to last you anywhere between 2 to 4 weeks with proper care.
Some factors affect the longevity of the eyelash extensions. Such as the amount of humidity in your area, steaming, rubbing, sleeping on one side. Resting on your face, touching them too much or using oil-based makeup remover pads also affect the lifetime of your eyelash extensions
To maintain a full look for an extended period; you should get the refills done after every 2-3 weeks.
We recommend that you come in for refills every 2-3 weeks. The refill process can take anywhere between an hour to 75 minutes.
If you take a longer gap in between refills, there is a significant risk to your eyelash extensions. They may fall out entirely and you will need a new set.
Therefore, it’s essential that you schedule an appointment with us earlier. Many factors will affect the longevity of the eyelash extensions. Such as the amount of humidity in your area, steaming, rubbing, sleeping on one side. Also resting on your face, using oil-based products, or make-up removal pads will affect your eyelash extensions.
The bonding agent used is waterproof, so you don’t need to worry about it falling off while you swim or shower.
However, we recommend you allow at least 48 hours for the adhesive to set. Do not wash your eyes for at least 48 hours after application of your eyelash extensions to prolong their life cycle.
After that, you are free to indulge in all water-based activities.
