One of the most popular questions asked by clients is what eyeliner they can use if they can even wear one. You can definitely wear eyeliner with extensions although many clients prefer not to wear eyeliner in general because usually the extensions create enough darkness on the lash line. What we want to avoid with eyeliner products is OILS. Oils break down the adhesive bond, causing the extensions to separate from the natural lash and fall off without the natural lash. Liqui
I know, I know, the lingo is intense. It's hard to choose a service when you're unfamiliar with these terms. I'll explain what each of them means and their benefits to give you a better understanding of what you're getting yourself into. Classic Eyelash Extensions- These are the original technique of extensions. One, eyelash extension is applied to one, isolated, natural lash. You can get as full as you have natural lashes, so if you want a very full look and you have sparse
Let's talk about shedding cycles and how they play into extensions. Each lash is in it's own phase of growth, which means, we can't predict where hair will shed and it can be uneven had sporadic. Each day, you may see on average 2-5 lashes falling out which is completely normal. Sometimes you're able to make it 3 weeks from your full set and the next only 2 weeks. Each individual hair follicle take about 4-8 weeks to be replaced aftershedding. Some days you
Eyelash extensions aren't cheap, but with the service growing in popularity, people have taken advantage of customers by offering cheap services to get in as many people as they can. Well, $99 for a Classic Full Set sounds amazing right? Sure, I can't argue with that.

Sometimes we get our lashes done, look in the mirror and aren't as impressed as we expected to be. A lot of times, clients refer to them not being THICK enough. When it comes to selecting a diameter for your natural lashes, we, as lash artists, have to take into account your natural lash thickness, length and health. There are multiple diameters to choose from depending on techniques and what's healthy to apply to your natural lashes.

Obviously eyelash extensions are a very popular choice for brides, because they're waterproof and you don't have to worry about mascara smudge if you're a big crier. Lots of brides immediately book their eyelash appointment days before their wedding.
I applaud you ladies for getting your appointments booked and out of the way, because if you wait until last minute, you may not have the time or there may not be time to accommodate you. However, booking your first or full set
How many times have I heard this or some variation?
Too many to count. The reality is that people don't understand shedding cycles and they don't understand expectation vs. reality. A lot of times I hear someone either tell me that their friend told them not to because she lost all her lashes or she herself has experienced this. You get your lashes done, they look amazing and full and beautiful and a few days later you notice some have come out and your natural lash is on it.
If you don't touch them, they will last forever! Nope. It's a very common myth that if you don't touch your lashes or get them wet at all, they will last way longer than normal. So, contrary to what many people think, that is untrue and actually can do more harm in the longevity of your extensions. Obviously, one of the main rules to stick to when you have eyelash extensions on is to avoid oil-based products, since oils can break down the adhesive bond and eventually cause th

I want to educate you about your lashes for you to have a better understanding of how extensions come into play and why they do what they do, etc. First off, we all have eyelashes and they grow out to be different lengths, thicknesses and have different curls to them. We have multiple layers as well which create the fullness we all naturally have. Sometimes, based on our li
