Frequently Asked Questions

They are individual extensions made of a faux mink material to look like perfect natural eyelashes; thicker at the base and thinner at the tip with a slight curl. They come in many different colors; the most popular is Solid Black. They are adhered one by one to a natural lash with a medical-grade bonding adhesive giving the appearance of a darker, more voluptuous lash-line.
An average eyelid has approximately 100+ natural hairs which shed at an average rate of 20-30% every 2 weeks. Therefore, when the natural hair sheds, so does the extension that was attached to it. Since new hairs are always growing in, refills can be performed to attach extensions to the new growth keeping the lashes looking full continuously or for as long as you wish to maintain them.
On average, refills are recommended every 2-3 weeks to keep the lashes looking their best. With proper maintenance semi-permanent eyelash extensions can be kept up indefinitely through regular refills.

Anyone with an eyelash to attach to can receive eyelash extensions. However, if you have any of the following conditions we advise you to schedule a free consultation prior to scheduling a full set to best determine if lashes are right for you.-Extremely sensitive eyes or skin

-Allergy to cyanoacrylate (this is used in acrylic nails and most adhesives of any kind)

My application technique and premium products will not damage your natural lashes. It is imperative to the health of your lashes to have each natural hair isolated when an extension is adhered to it and ensure proper separation so that the hairs can continue to grow and shed as they would naturally. We only use formaldehyde-free, medical-grade adhesives which are made exclusively for lash extensions and offer a more sensitive adhesive for our guests who are more prone to allergic reactions. This combination of our top quality adhesive and individual lash attachment will sustain the health and integrity of the natural hairs indefinitely.
Classic Lash extensions are my signature lash application where the attachment of 1 extension is applied to 1 natural eyelash. The result is an enhanced lash line, yet very natural and realistic in appearance. Volume lash extensions are my premium volume lash application where I apply 2 or more of my lightest weight lash extensions to 1 natural eyelash. My Volume set of ashes offer incredible fullness and last longer than the Classic lash application while still providing an enhanced natural appearance.
My eyelash extensions look and feel completely real as each application is customized to your eye shape, natural lash line, and desired look. I offer different curls, thicknesses, and lengths that are indistinguishable in weight to human lashes thereby providing a weightless feel to your lash line. With my experience, being a professional lash stylists I will choose a variety of extensions to create the most flattering, natural, and beautiful look for you.
The application process is very relaxing, just like receiving a spa service. You will lie back on a plush table and have your eyes closed the entire time. The application is very gentle and can be best described as though someone is gently brushing through your lashes. The service generally takes between 60 to 120 minutes to apply a full set and refills can be done in as little as 45 to 60 minutes. The procedure is so relaxing and comfortable that many clients fall asleep.
Please read “After Care Tips” to help through process.
Eyelash extensions can be easily removed using a special gel remover formulated to quickly dissolve the medical-grade adhesive and gently wipe away the lash extensions. The process is painless and will not harm your natural hairs – taking 30 or less minutes. Please do not attempt to remove lash extensions yourself as this can cause damage to your natural lashes.

 


After Care Tips

NO water for 24/48hrs.Avoid eye contact with water, excessive moisture, humidity and sweat for the first 24/48 hours after your appointment. This includes long and steamy showers, saunas, hot tubs and hot yoga. You may shower however, please do not soak your new lashes. During this time the adhesive needs time to fully cure and bond between your natural lash and the extension.
Mascara is prohibited while wearing eyelash extensions. Mascara will coat your extensions, erode the adhesive and be very difficult to remove while wearing extensions. Mascara on your lower lashes is generally okay, however, excessive amounts of mascara on your lower lashes can interfere with the adhesive bond on your upper lashes.
Pencil, gel and liquid eyeliner is prohibited while wearing eyelash extensions. These types of eyeliners will coat your lashes, erode the adhesive and will be very difficult to remove without removing your extensions.
Cleanse your lashes at least twice each week to maintain clean and healthy lashes. Ask about my gentle lash solution!
Avoid touching your lashes. Touching (picking, pulling, rubbing) your lashes loosens the adhesive bond through friction and oil contamination. Additionally, you risk losing your natural lashes by pulling or rubbing them. If necessary to have one repaired or removed see professional.
Sleeping on your back is best for your eyelash extensions. Sleeping on your sides will result in loss of the eyelash extensions on your outer corners. Sleeping in your face will result in premature loss of your extensions. Additionally a satin pillow case can cut down on any friction
All skincare and makeup products from the eyebrow to the eyelid must be oil free. Including primer, foundation, sunscreen, eye cream, cream eye shadow, setting spray etc. Remove your makeup using an free makeup remover
Brush lashes with a clean mascara wand daily .Wait 48 hours after service. Starting from the base of lid, gently roll the brush over the tips of the lashes with eyes closed to detangle. Open eyes and brush upwards to detangle and adjust lashes.
Keep lashes away from heat. Be careful when opening the oven door or grill lid. Be mindful of using heat
Hair tools near your lashes. Excessive heat from these sources can singe, distort and/or straighten your lashes.


Before Care Tips

Please remove all eye makeup; refrain from mascara, heavy creams and/or foundations. Your lashes will not adhere properly if your natural lashes have any makeup,heavy lotions,serums, and/or vaseline residue around your eyes. A $10 makeup remover fee will be added if you need help removing makeup.
Please arrive 10 mins before appointment to review your consent form and receive a consultation; if possible/ if you are a new client. Existing clients, please arrive on time. If you are late, I can only lash you within your designated appointment time. Please consider other Lash Dolls appointments.
Please shower and wear comfortable clothes; if possible. Eliminating any unnecessary contact with water or steam within the first 24hrs will insure proper curing of lash extension adhesive. Also comfortable clothes will allow you to make the most of this time to relax and be pampered.
Please cut off liquids 2-3 hours before your appointment time; if possible. For the best experience, I want you to relax and avoid the “pee dance” :).
Please limit caffeine; if possible. Just temporarily, 2-3 hours before your appointment time. Caffeine can make your eyes jittery,which isn’t ideal for your lash application.
Please silence your cell phone. It feels good to unplug and relax while you get the best lash experience.
Please adhere to the cancellation/no-show policy. It is imperative to let me know at least 24 hours BEFORE your appointment if your unable to make it or need to reschedule. If there is a cancellation/ reschedule/ no-show, you will be billed $75 for your service made (50% deposit included, if a appointment requires less than $75, the difference will be collected). A 50% NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT is required for all appointments. Deposit will be used towards your service of choice AND ANY CANCELATIONS.This shows that you respect my time and other clients that are excited to get lashed too. **If not paid, the full payment amount and previous fee will be applied at the time of making next appointment.
