How are the Lash Extensions applied?
A single natural eyelash is isolated and a synthetic lash is glued to the top of the natural lash, approximately 1mm from the base of the natural lash. Therefore contact with the eyelid is avoided.
How long will the application take?
The procedure will take approximate 2 hours, this is a meticulous procedure that requires patience and concentration. The client just relaxes with closed eyes while the lashes are being applied. It is not uncommon for the client to fall asleep during the process.
What are fill-ins and why do I need them?
Fill-ins are placed when the lashes start to fall out or look unnatural. Every 2 to 4 weeks, you will need to return to have some of the lashes replaced. This procedure will take about 1 hour.
