FAQ

  • Eyelash Extensions are single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. They are applied to individual eyelashes, one lash at a time, for a natural, elegant and luscious look. Eyelash Extensions are perfect for special occasions as well as for every day wear.

  • When applied properly, semi-permanent Eyelash Extensions can last up to 2 months, depending on the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes. Most clients get a ‘fill’ every 3 weeks. 

  • Wait 24+ hours to get your lashes wet.

    Be gentle with your lashes.

    Avoid rubbing your eyes.

    Avoid oil-based and waterproof mascara.  

    Water based mascara and water based mascara remover may be used. 

    Avoid excessive exposure to heat, steam, sauna, and friction to the lashes

    No oil based products around the eyelashes

    No waterproof cosmetic products on or near the eyes.

    Every evening: Cleanse your lashes with a lint-free wand. The adhesion point is rough, and lint from a towel or a q-tip may get caught in the bond and cause irritation to your eye. Your extensions are placed 1mm away from the root of your natural lash at your lash line. We all know 1mm is very small. There is a possibility dead skin, debris, or make-up may accumulate in this small space and cause damage to your natural lash. Damage can be prevented by thoroughly cleansing your lashes on a DAILY basis.

  • We recommend getting a fill approximately every 3 weeks. A natural eyelash falls off every 60 to 90 days on average due to the natural growth cycle and is naturally replaced with the growth of a new eyelash.  At any given moment, each of your natural eyelashes is at a different stage of its life cycle.  A fill is needed to replenish the lashes that have completed their life cycle.

  • With proper application, Eyelash Extensions look and feel completely real. 

  • Yes. You can shower, swim, exercise, sleep and spa worry-free while wearing Eyelash Extensions. You can enjoy these lashes with little need to adjust your lifestyle.

  • Remember: To maximize your time with your lash artist, come to your appointment with clean eyes free of makeup.  

    We understand you keep a busy schedule; if you are unable to arrive without eye makeup, please arrive early to use the remover and cleanser provided so we may maximize your appointment time by applying extensions.  We will cleanse the lashes of oil and prime them but if we have to spend time removing eye make up you will be charged an additional $5.

Lash Extension After Care Instructions

Now that you have lash extensions take note of these tips to maintain them. With proper care and fills your eyelashes can last indefinitely.
-Do not get your eyelashes wet for the first 24 hours.
-Do not use a spa, sauna or pool for the first 24 hours. The extensions need that amount of time to properly bond.
-Avoid pulling your lash extensions or rubbing your eyes.
-Do not use eyelash curlers with your extensions. With proper application you will not need them.
-ONLY use oil-free makeup remover. If your eyelashes are tangled or crossed over, use the Spoolie given to you during your appointment to gently brush them straight and put them in place.
-Proper hygiene is very important. Please keep lashes clean by regular washing.
- We do not recommend using any mascara but if you must, use only mascaras that are safe for eyelash extensions, no oil-based or waterproof mascaras. Only apply the mascara to the tips of your lashes.
-After showering avoid rubbing lashes, it best to blot them with a towel and let them air dry. You can also dry the lashes by using a hair dryer on the cool setting and blowing them dry from the bottom up.
-Use care when applying facial and eye creams to avoid the lash line. Too many oil-based products can break down the adhesive.
-Vixen Lash + Brow recommends touch-up appointments every two to four weeks to maintain your new eyelash extensions.
