- What Are Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash Extensions are semi-permanent individual synthetic eyelashes that are applied to each of your individual eyelashes, for a nice clean look to lengthen and add fullness to your existing lashes. They look and feel comfortable and you can brush smoothly through them. Each application is customized to suit each person. We offer different thicknesses of lashes and different curls with lengths from 7mm to 16mm. The thickness or weight of the Eyelash Extensions applied is determined by the health and thickness of your natural lashes. Your beauty regimen time is saved, you can spend less time with makeup, and mascara is certainly no longer necessary. Eyelash Extensions create the appearance of a brighter rejuvenated look.
- I have no lashes at all, can I wear Eyelash Extensions?
Because Eyelash Extensions are applied to existing natural lashes you must have some natural lashes to receive the procedure. Eyelash Extensions cannot, be applied to clients who have alopecia, are undergoing chemotherapy or those who suffer from Trichotillomania, unless and until the individual has received effective treatment and normal lash growth has resumed.
- How long does the procedure take?
Between 2-4 hours depending on the design the client requests. The most natural look can take 2 hours, extreme look 4 hours.
- Will these damage my natural lashes?
If correctly applied and maintained, no.
- How do I maintain them?
Get a fill in every 2 weeks. Clean them by using a micro brush, top and bottom. Blow dry on the coldest setting after getting them wet in a upward motion. Brush them 2-3 times per day with provided mascara wand.
- How long do they last?
People typically shed 10-20 natural lashes daily, depending on their natural growth cycle. The extensions fall off with the natural lashes they are bonded to.
- How much does it cost?
A two hour session $250. A three hour session $350. Fill ins must have AT LEAST 50% of the lashes remaining to qualify: One hour fill $125. Two hour fill $150.
- If I have existing extensions on that I did not get at FYEO, Can I get a fill?
No, our technician only works on her original work due to her artistic and quality standards.
- What do I need to know before coming to the appointment?
You must not have ANYTHING on your face; no make up, oil, moisturizer, absolutely nothing! If there is any residue the lashes will not bond properly therefore they potentially will come off much earlier than desired. Please come alone, you will be expected to lie down for the entire appointment with eyes closed. NO use of cell phones are permitted during this time.
- How far in advance should I get them done if I have a special occasion?
We recommend five days prior to any event. This will allow you to get comfortable wearing them and time for any irritation to the invisible fumes to subside. People with sensitive eyes could experience eye redness, watering or minor burning sensation during application. A fan is provided to help eliminate the fumes.
