Eyelash Extensions: Myths Explained November 23 2017, 0 Comments
Hi U'nique beauties!
Today we want to talk with you everything about EYELASH EXTENSIONS.
It is a big trend right now in the beauty industry, and as specialists on this subject, we want to clear all the doubts and fears you may have about this revolutionary technique.
We've been doing it for more than 8 years now. We have learned our mistakes from the beginning and from constantly fixing lashes from other salons; have seen different styles, techniques and products. In our passion to give you the best, we are constantly learning, researching new techniques and products, and have created a special system to create the perfect set of Eyelash design for you. We will talk about our system in a separate blog post….
So let`s get started with the most common questions we receive from our clients:
Q. What is Eyelash Extension?
A. Like hair extensions, Eyelash Extension adds volume and length to human eyelashes. Using a special glue, synthetic single fibers are placed one by one or 2d-7d in your natural eyelashes.
Q. How long does it take to have the Eyelash Extension?
A. Depending on the chosen shape and the number of your natural eyelashes, it takes between 90- 120 minutes for the new set, and between 30-90 minutes for the refill depending on the condition of your Eyelash Extensions.
Q. Is it painful and uncomfortable to have the Eyelash Extensions?
A. Not painful at all. In fact it is a pleasant experience, clients fall asleep during the treatment.
Q. What is the difference between Eyelash Extensions and Fake Eyelashes?
A. Eyelash Extensions are applied one by one into your own eyelashes, giving it a more natural look. Fake Eyelashes are strip lashes that gives more synthetic look and only lasts for hours.
Q. What are the different type of Eyelash Extensions
A. CLASSIC: this is one to one technique. Meaning we put one synthetic fiber in each of your natural ones. This enhances the volume and length of eyelashes without looking fake.
2D/3D we create a fan of 2-3 eyelashes and put it in one of your natural lashes. This is usually to give more dramatic volume than the classic.
Russian Volume we create a fan of 5-9 eyelashes to give a dramatic volume to your eyelashes.
NOTE: Thickness and length varies depending on the design we create for you and the natural state of your natural lashes.
Q. Will the extensions damage my own eyelashes?
A. We apply the extensions 1.5mm from your skin eyelash line so it does not affect your natural ones. The eyelash extension does not affect your eyelash cycle growth. And we work with proper length proportion (length of your extension and length of your own eyelashes)
Q. Can I still swim, go to the sauna, and do my usual regimen?
A. Yes, you can do the usual. The only thing you have to avoid is putting oil in your eyelashes as it loosens the bond of the glue, causing your Eyelash Extensions to fall.
Q. My eyelashes are permed – can I still have extensions?
A. Yes, you can. However, it is advisable to do it a day or two after.
Q. How long do the extensions last for?
A. Every person had a different eyelash cycle, the extension falls off with your own eyelashes so it is different for each person, but is usually between 3 and 8 weeks.
Q. Will I lose some of my own eyelashes or will they fall out?
A. As long as you don’t forcibly pull them or rub them too strongly, there is no problem.
You don’t have to worry about some falling out and looking patchy as was the case with traditional extensions.
Q. I have very long eyelashes – can I get extensions?
A. Yes, you can. It will enhance your already thick and long eyelashes by giving a great shape and volume that no mascara can achieve.
Q. DESIGN: I am in the corporate world and/or simply into conservative chic, would it be possible to get an Eyelash Extension with a natural look?
A. Yes, definitely. We offer different kinds of looks- romantic, natural, cat eyes etc.. We do a short consultation prior to the service, we word according to your personal style, lifestyle, profession, shape and depth of the eyes and length of your eyelashes.
Q. Can men also get Eyelash Extensions?
A. Yes, definitely. We can enhance mens eyelashes with a very natural effect, as if he is born with it. All we have to do it use similar length and thickness, and follow the eyes natural form/shape.
