Depending on your chosen style and type (Classic, Hybrid, Volume or Mega) your service can take 1.5-3.5 hours. This is because your set is handcrafted specifically for you. On average, we have approximately 90-150 eyelashes per eye. You will be laying on your back with a pillow under your knees for comfort and support.
Endless Lashes requires each client to book their fill appointment within 2-3 weeks of initial appointment. This ensures your eyelash extensions remain beautiful and full. If you choose to book beyond your 3 weeks, you may be charged for a full set as too much time has elapsed and too many lashes will have shed in this time frame. Additionally, you will be required to clean your lashes daily with lash shampoo, which can be purchased from your lash artist. Keeping your lashes clean and free from infection will help in the maintenance, retention and health of your natural eyelashes.
No. The biggest myth is that lash extensions ruin your own lashes. They do not. If applied correctly and properly, they are safe and do not ruin the health of your natural lashes. Be sure not to rub your eyes, tug or pull on the extensions because this can cause lash loss and even damage to your natural lashes. If lashes are applied properly and to each individual lash, they won’t be damaged. When done properly, eyelash extensions are applied by a certified eyelash extension artist. Your artist should be properly trained in application techniques, eyelash health, and certain eye diseases. This specific training ensures that your service is being done by a professional who will maintain the health of your eyes and eyelashes.
Because of the sensitive nature of the lashes and the surrounding area, finding someone who is certified to apply the lashes is definitely a must. Professionals use professional products and have been properly trained to apply the lashes without damaging your natural lashes or more importantly, your eyes.
Just like you would with a hairstylist, research who you want to go to. Look at before-and-after photos, read reviews and always make sure they are certified to apply lashes.
Remember, cheaper isn’t always better. Lash extensions are a luxury service, so if the cost seems too good to be true, it probably is!
Prior to your appointment, it is important that you come with a makeup free, clean face. Do not curl your lashes on the day of your appointment. Do not wear contacts to your appointment. Your eyes will be closed for an extended period of time and they may become irritated due to the lack of moisture.
Yes. However, avoid wearing mascara. Mascara can break down the integrity of the glue, causing your extensions to fall off prematurely. If you must wear mascara, please choose a water based product. Always use oil free products to remove all makeup.
Yes. You can work out as you normally do, as part of your routine. It will be important to clean your lashes after every workout. If sweat and dirt sits on the lashes, they can prematurely fall off.
