What are Eyelash Extensions?
Synthetic mink, or silk lashes that are applied individually using specially formulated, semi-permanent adhesive. The purpose of the extensions is to create the appearance of longer, thicker eyelashes. Applying a full set of lashes takes about one to two hours. The lash extension eventually sheds just as your natural lashes would. You can maintain the extensions with refills about every two to four weeks. You must have 40% of extensions remaining for it to be considered a fill, anything less will be charged as a full set. The extensions may be worn while sleeping, swimming, or showering.

*Lash extensions can only be applied to your natural eyelashes, not your skin.*

How long does it take to apply a full set of lashes?
The application process takes about 1-2 hours.

How long do lash extensions last?
The lash extensions will stay on anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks. The bond life depends on many things such as: Proper after care, proper preparation, and proper application. Due to the lashes growth cycle, refills must be applied to fill in the gaps from the natural lashes that have fallen out. You can maintain the extensions with refills about every two to four weeks.

Do you only have one location?
Yes one location in North Hollywood, California.

How can lash extensions be removed?
Please do not try to remove lash extensions yourself... You will end up pulling out your natural lashes if you pick or pull on the extensions. We apply a special gel on to the extensions, that is made to dissolve the bond of the adhesive. No damage is done to your natural lashes.

Are they permanent?
Lash extensions are semi-permanent. Your natural lashes have their own growth cycle, which is why you need to get a fill every 2-4 weeks. 

Does your glue contain formaldehyde or latex?

Do you fill in other lash artists' work?
