What are Lash Extensions?
Lash extensions are a glamourous new way to extend the length and thickness of natural eyelashes, and are a practical, convenient, and beautiful alternative to the daily use of mascara. Lash extensions are the first innovation in lash lengthening that can be worn daily without nightly removal. Because each tapered synthetic lash is bonded to a single natural lash, the final result is of effortless glamour and difficult to detect even close up.
How long do they last?
When properly applied, extensions can be worn throughout the year with minimal monthly maintenance. Touch ups are recommended after the initial full set application to refill any lashes that have cycled out. To maintain the full, thick appearance of a new set of lashes, a visit to AnneLauren is suggested every 2 to 4 weeks, based on your own natural lash growth cycle.
How many extensions are applied on each eye?
At least 30 to 60 or more extensions are applied per eye. The result is long, beautiful and naturally lush looking lashes. Remember that you are limited to the number of natural eyelashes available that the extensions can attach to. Even sparse eyelashes will be greatly enhanced.
I do not have any eyelashes. Can I get Lash Extensions?
Unfortunately, no. The extensions must have hairs to adhere to, but AnneLauren can help you with strip eyelashes and makeup techniques as an alternative.
Can mascara be used with Lash Extensions?
Mascara is typically not needed with lash extensions. Mascara should only be used when a touch-up is drawing near. Water-soluble mascara can be worn; however constant use of mascara will shorten the life span of your lashes. Waterproof mascara is not recommended for use, as it will dissolve the bond with the lashes.
How long does the service take?
Depending on the number of eyelash extensions applied, it generally takes between 120 to 150 minutes to apply a full set of lashes. Touch ups can be done in as little as 45 to 60 minutes.
Once applied, what is the proper way to care for my new Lashes?
Using a lash wand to comb the lashes free of tangles is recommended. Avoid any oily product coming into contact with your lashes, as it will break down the bond and cause your extensions to come away from your natural lash. The less you do to your lashes, the better!
