Eyelash Extensions FAQs

Did you know the demand for eyelash extensions has skyrocketed by over 30% in the past year alone? With such growing interest, clients are buzzing with questions. That's why as a lash artist, it's best to be well-equipped with the latest knowledge and insights in the lash world.

Now, if you're not a lash artist and are just curious about lash extensions, this blog is also perfect for you! In this article, we've compiled the top 10 eyelash extension FAQs.

Let's dive in!

1. What are eyelash extensions?

Eyelash extensions are individual strands of synthetic fibres designed to replicate a natural eyelash. These lashes are not like strip lashes. They are semi-permanent and are glued to your natural lashes with a professional adhesive. The result? A fuller, darker, and longer lash line that looks and feels natural.

2. Lash tinting vs. extensions: what's the difference?

While lash tinting darkens your natural lashes, extensions involve adding synthetic lashes to enhance length and volume. If you're looking for a more dramatic transformation, extensions are the way to go!

3. How long do eyelash extensions take?

For a complete set, expect the application process to take about 90-120 minutes. Refills typically take between 45-75 minutes. Many clients find the process so relaxing that they drift off a bit!

4. How long do eyelash extensions last?

Eyelash extensions can last 4-6 weeks. It depends on your natural lash cycle and how you care of them. But, we recommend getting refills every 2-4 weeks to maintain that lush look.

5. Will Extensions Damage My Natural Lashes?

When applied correctly, eyelash extensions won't harm your natural lashes. That's why it is important to choose the right lash artist. Make sure they have proper lash training and use high-quality products. 

6. Can I wear mascara with my extensions?

While you can, it's not recommended. Mascara can weaken the adhesive and shorten the lifespan of your extensions. If you must, opt for a water-based mascara.

7. Can I tint my lashes before extensions?

Yes! Tinting before extensions can enhance the base colour, making your extensions stand out even more. Just ensure there's a brief interval between tinting and the extension application.

8. How do I care for my eyelash extensions?

Caring for your lash extensions is easier than you think. One of the most important aftercare tips: avoid getting your lashes wet for the first 24 hours. But if your lash artist uses a super bonder, you can wet your lashes right away. Also, stay away from oil-based products and be gentle when cleansing. Brush your extensions daily with a spoolie brush to keep them looking fresh. You can also check our blog on how to care for your extensions  here.

9. How often should I get touch-ups?

To maintain a full and fresh look, getting touch-ups every 2-4 weeks is recommended.

10. What if I change my mind?

No worries! If you want to remove your extensions, make sure a professional does it to protect your lashes.
