Eyelash extensions are a revolutionary new product that thicken and lengthen eyelashes. Eyelash extensions are semi permanent, single strands of synthetic or real mink lashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. They are applied to natural lashes, one at a time for a natural, elegant and luxurious look- perfect for special occasions or for everyday wear.

How long do eyelash extensions last?
When applied properly, semi-permanent extensions can last up to 2 months depending on the natural growth cycle of your own lashes and the expertise of the lash artist applying your lashes. To maintain the look of your lashes, a retouch will be required every 2 to 3 weeks.
Can my clients swim, shower, or exercise while wearing eyelash extensions?
Yes, after an initial cure time of 24 hours, the formulated adhesive lets people shower, swim, exercise, and sleep worry-free while wearing them.
How often should I recommend retouches?
Recommend a retouch every two to three weeks. Since natural eyelashes shed every 60 to 90 days retouch is needed to replenish the lashes that have completed their life cycle. Retouches generally take a short time and are relatively inexpensive.
Can mascara be applied to lash extensions?
Yes. But one of the main advantages of lash extensions is never needing to apply mascara. However if your clients want a real mascara look they should use a water-based mascara, but never use waterproof mascaras on lash extensions.
How do my clients take care of their lash extensions?
When applied using our methods, extensions are very easy to maintain. Each client should be given detailed after care instructions following the procedure. To maintain the look and extend the life of their lashes, they should follow these easy care instructions:
- Do not wash eyes or shower for 24 hours after lash application
- Avoid humidity and do not swim or use a spa for 48 hours after lash application
- Be gentle with the lashes, keep them clean and dry, and brush them daily
- Avoid rubbing eyes or using aggressive back and forth movements
- Use only a water-based mascara and remover if necessary
- Cleanse daily
- Keep your pre-booked retouch appointments every two to three weeks.
How much should I charge for a full application of eyelash extensions?
The average full set is priced $150-300 and touch-ups are $50-85.
