Eyelash extensions are individual lashes, made of silk, mink, or something synthetic, that are attached to your existing lashes semi-permanently. If you’ve ever dreamt of waking up with Bambi lashes but without that ring of leftover mascara dangling a foot under your eye, this is your solution..
At Elite Skin & Lash, our expert lash artists conduct thorough consultations with every client to help determine what length, curl, and shape would best suit the client’s eyes, taking into consideration both your style preference and the current health of your natural eyelashes. Our technicians take exceptional pride in maintaining a high standard of hygiene and professional application as well as proper technique. The application procedure is so relaxing that most clients even fall asleep. Many wake up stunned and amazed to see how gorgeous their new lashes look because we work every set to perfection. We promise you will love your new and improved lashes, we are confident that the results will speak for themselves!
After getting your lashes done at Elite Skin & Lash, you will notice a change in your daily beauty routine. When you wake up you will find it extremely convenient to no longer need to apply mascara or utilize an eyelash curler. With eyelash extensions, you can prevent damage to your natural eyelashes normally caused by eyelash curlers and/or heavy mascara application.
Everything you need to know about getting eyelash extensions:
1. It’s a very luxurious process.
Really—it’s enjoyable. You lie down in a bed and close your eyes for an hour and a half while calming music plays in the background and our trained technician attaches little feathery nothings to your lashes. It’s the most socially acceptable naptime a working adult could ask for. And if you’re not already sold, Elite Skin & Lash offer a complimentary massage while you’re on the operating table.
2. Every lash extension experience is customizable.
When you’re done, you will not end up looking like you just got a permanent strip lash attached to your lid. First, you can choose the length. We carry lash extension lengths from 9 to 15mm (or, from natural to Kardashian length). The sweet spot for most is 10-12.
After you pick your length, pick your curl. A “J” curl is for a more natural, awake look, while a “C” curl is a more dramatic, lots of people prefer Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler” look. If you want to get creative, you can do “J” on the inner corners of your eyes and “C” on the outer edges for a more cat eye look.
Now, in terms of material, we offer several selections to choose from: Faux Mink, Faux Fox, Silk, Real Mink, and last but not least, Real Human Hair. The differences between these looks are negligible so majority opt for the Faux Mink since it’s the most affordable.
3. Eyelash extensions last longer than you think.
With proper care, some people can get their extensions to last up to a month and a half. Most places recommend you come back every 2-3 weeks for a touch up, but if you’re looking to save a bit of money, you can prolong their lifespan. Just be careful not to get water on your lashes and don’t use oily products near your eyes. We will provide instructions how to keep your eyelashes looking good longer.
4. Yes, you can wear makeup with them.
If you can’t stand the thought of ditching your smoky eye, don’t worry, you don’t have to. Only liquid-based eye products can be damaging to the extensions, but you can get away with a tiny wing of liquid liner as long as you’re not dragging it along the lash line. Make sure to carefully remove the shadow or liner with oil-free makeup remover and Q-tips for precision. Most importantly, stay away from mascara entirely as it leaves the extensions crusty and damaged. It’s only acceptable if you’re at the end of your cycle and will be getting a fresh set in a few days.
5. Extensions can ruin your eyelashes—but they don’t have to.
If cared as recommended or by a professional technician you got nothing to worry about. If you don’t play by the rules and made the mistake of previously pulling out the extensions by yourself–not only is it extremely painful but it leaves you with few to no natural eyelashes left. However, after what can be called the intense “eyelash rehab” program of applying Vaseline and other treatments to your lashes every night, your natural eyelashes will come back to normal after a month and a half or so.
6. The only way to get rid of them is to get them professionally removed or have them fall out naturally.
Having the extensions removed is as easy as having them put on–painless and relatively quick. Every salon will have this service available. If you’re not looking to spend any more money, however, the extensions do fall out with the natural shedding of your lashes. This is a much slower process, but it is free, so there’s that.
The eyelash extensions last indefinitely with touch-ups every 2 to 4 weeks
