Will my lashes fall out?

Yes & this is normal. Your eyelash extension will fall out with its natural lash during its growth cycle. 2-4 lashes lost a day is normal.

 

How often should I get a fill?

We recommend that you get a fill every 2-3 weeks depending on how fast your lashes grow. You must have at least the minimum required lashes left to get a fill, anything less will be considered a full set.

 

Can eyelash extensions be removed?

Yes. If at any time you wish to remove your eyelash extensions or have had an improper application  some where else we can remove them for you. We have a special solution that breaks down the adhesive & safely removes the extensions with out causing any damage to your natural lashes. 

  • DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE THE EYELASH EXTENSIONS YOURSELF AS THIS CAN CAUSE THE NATURAL LASH TO BE PERMANENTLY PULLED OUT.

 

Can anyone get eyelash extensions?

Yes, anyone at any age can have eyelash extensions applied as long as there is a healthy natural lash to glue an extension to. Some allergies & eye conditions can effect the ability to apply eyelash extensions. If you have under gone chemotherapy eyelash extensions are a great option for you but your lashes must be strong enough to support an extension.

If you have an eye infection or have undergone any kind of eye operation or cosmetic surgery you need to wait until the eye area is completely healed.

Anyone under the age of 18 is required to have parental consent.

 

What is a patch test & why is it done?

A patch test is done before your first full set. You will come in at least 48 hours before your scheduled full set & fill out a new client form as well as have 2-3 lashes applied. (A patch test does not guarantee an allergic reaction will not occur in future appointments)

A patch test is always recommended to any new client coming to Long Lash Beauty. If you do wish to have a patch test done please book a consultation appointment.

 

Can I get eyelash extensions for vacation?

Yes, eyelash extensions are perfect for vacation. Please make sure you book your appointment in advance to ensure your lashes are fully cured before leaving on vacation.

 

Do I have to wait 24 hours to get my lashes wet?

No! Our lashes are waterproof the minute you walk out of our studio.

Can I change between lash styles (classic, hybrid and volume)?

Yes! There are two options for switching your lash style

  1. We can remove your current lashes and apply a new full set of your new lash style. (ex. Remove your current classic eyelash extensions and apply a new full set of volume eyelash extensions.) This way you have your new style right away.

  2. *Most Popular. Book your next fill appointment for the style you would like to switch to. (ex. You currently have classic eyelash extensions and book a volume refresh appointment.) It will take about 2-3 appointments to be fully switched over to your new style.

What is the difference between classic, hybrid and volume eyelash extensions?

Classic eyelash extensions are when one eyelash extensions is applied to one natural lash. This creates a “mascara” look adding length and darkening the lashes.

Volume eyelash extensions are when your artist creases a fan of 2-6 light weight eyelash extensions that will be applied to one natural lash. This creates a fuller more dense lash look.

Hybrid eyelash extensions are a mix of classic and volume. Perfect if classic just isn’t enough but volume is to much.


Lash Lift & tint

What is a lash lift?

A lash lift is designed to curl your lashes like a manual curler would but with better results & less harm done to your natural lashes. A lash lift will create a longer look to your eyelashes. Most clients will also get a lash tint done at the same time to create the effect of mascara.

 

Will the application be harmful to my natural lashes?

Not at all. When done properly by a certified professional your natural lashes will not be damaged.  Make sure you have done your research.

 

What should I expect during the service?

Is a lash lift the same as an eyelash perm?

No a lash lift is a new & improved procedure. The solutions used are the same but the big difference is an eyelash perm uses a "rod" that can create an over cured look where the lashes go into the eyelid. A lash lift uses a "shield" that lifts the eyelashes from the root creating an upwards curl to give length & a bright eye look.

 

How long will the lash lift last?

A lash lift can last for 6-8 weeks. This can vary from person to person depending on your hair growth as well as some factors that can cause the lash lift to weaken/ drop such as swimming, uses of harsh products & heat. This service will need to be repeated after the 6-8 weeks to lift the new hair growth. There is no need for a maintenance appointment in between but if you find the lash lift does not last 6-8 weeks for you the process can be repeated before then.

 

Can I wear make up after this service is done?

Yes but we recommend that you leave your lashes untouched for the first 24 hours as the treatment is still curing. Most people find that they don't need any mascara after this service but if you wish to wear mascara we recommend using a non water-proof mascara since water-proof mascara can be harder to remove & weaken the lash lift.

 

Can anyone get an eyelash lift?

Yes, anyone can get a lash lift as long as the natural lash is strong enough & not damaged.

Anyone under the age of 18 is required to have parental consent.

If you have an eye infection or have undergone any kind of eye operation or cosmetic eye surgery you need to wait until the eye area is completely healed.

 

Can I use an eyelash curler?

No. You will not need to use an eyelash curler after this service because it gives much better results then using a curler. Using a curler may weaken or damage your lashes.

 

Can I get a lash lift for vacation?

Yes, a lash lift is perfect for vacation. Keep in mind your lash lift needs at least 24 hours to set before being exposed to water & heat. Make sure to book your appointment in advance.

Exposure to salt water may cause the lash lift to drop faster then normal.
