LASH EXTENSIONS FAQs
Frequently asked questions
Q. WHAT ARE LASH EXTENSIONS?
A. Eyelash extensions are a procedure that adds length, fullness or both to your natural lashes using a one by one lash application.
Q. HOW LONG DO EYELASH EXTENSIONS LAST?
A: Your lashes can last up to 4-5 weeks but should be filled every 2-3 weeks to keep the original full appearance. At Style & Face Studios you have a 25 day time frame to get a fill, if you come in after 25 days it is considered a new set, and is priced as one.
Q. DO I NEED TO DO ANYTHING TO PREPARE FOR MY EYELASH EXTENSION APPOINTMENT?
A: Please arrive to your eyelash appointment with clean lashes free of dirt & debris. Try to avoid mascara and strip eyelashes the day before your appointment because their residue usually takes a few days to be fully removed.
Please do not have any caffeine or energy drinks before your appointment. Caffeine makes your body jittery and can make your appointment take longer than the allotted time due to how much your eyes are moving.
Q. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO APPLY EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
A: The timing of your service will depend on which lash set you choose. (i.e classic, hybrid, volume, mega volume, strip lash look). Full sets start at 1.5-2 hours and can go to 3-3.5 hours. FIlls start at 1hr 15mins & can go to 2.5 hours.
Q. WILL LASH EXTENSIONS RUIN OR CAUSE DAMAGE TO MY NATURAL LASHES?
A: NO. Lash extensions that are properly applied do not cause damage to your natural lashes. Lash extensions damaging your natural lashes is a myth. It is improper application that causes damage to your natural lashes. All Style & Face Studios Artists are properly trained in lash application to insure we maintain your natural lash health.
Q. I BRUSH MY LASHES AS INSTRUCTED, BUT NOTICE I LOSE SOME EVERY TIME, WHY IS THAT?
A: You naturally lose 2-6 lashes every day, even if you don't find them laying around. You lose and regrow your lashes every 60-90 days, each eyelash has its own growth cycle so that you don't lose them all at once. If you are seeing 2-6 fall out there is no need to be concerned. However, if for some strange reason you are losing more than that in a day, please contact us so that we can take care of it.
Q. HOW DO YOU CLEAN EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
A: Eyelash Extensions should be cleaned with lash extension safe cleanser and clean eyeshadow brush. We recommend you get a fluffy eyeshadow brush that you only use to clean your lashes, that way no dirt or debris is transferred by accident. When cleaning use and up and down or side to side motion with your brush at the BASE of your lashes (the part closes to your eyelid) to remove any unwanted dirt. When you are done scrubbing, rinse with water. You may dry them with a fan or blow dryer, however your dryer must be on cool and away from your face. If you use your dryer on too hot of heat or too close to your face it will singe your eyelashes and make them look burnt at the ends.
Q. CAN I USE MASCARA ON MY EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
A: NO, please do not use mascara, or any other oil based products such has pencil eyeliner on your lash extensions. Oil based products can cause premature shedding and mascara makes your lash extensions stick together, and is hard to remove.
Q. SHOULD I GET CLASSIC, HYBRID, VOLUME, OR MEGA VOLUME LASH EXTENSIONS?
A: Which eyelash set to get is solely based on your desired look and lash needs.
Classic lash extensions are the most natural of all the sets, there is one lash extension applied to one natural eyelash giving a 1:1 ratio. If you feel like you have thin lashes and are wanting a fuller look this set may not be best fit. If you have a lot of natural lashes or just want to extend what you have naturally this set will do the job.
Volume lash extensions are made up entirely of small fans. Each fan has 2-10 eyelash extension in it. This technique is full and noticeable. Each one of your natural lashes gets a fan made of 2-10 lashes making your lash set fuller than your natural lashes. We recommend these lashes for those who love fullness or who don't have a lot of natural lashes.
Hybrid lash extensions are simply a mix of classic and volume extensions. The set is made up of some classic lashes and some hybrid lashes, and the ratio is customized to fit your desired look. we recommend this set for those who want more fullness than natural but aren't sure how full. A moderate amount of lashes will work for this set.
Mega Volume Lash extensions is the fullest and most lightweight set of eyelash extensions. The Mega Volume Fans are made of up to 15 very very fine lashes and can create the blackest of set of lashes. This set is also recommended for people with very fine or thin natural lashes, as it will be able to fill any gaps you may naturally have.
Q. WHAT IS LASH SHED SEASON? IS IT REAL?
A: Lash shed season is a 6 week period that happens in the spring and fall, where your body is shedding more hair than usual to prepare you for the upcoming season. During this time we recommend you stay on top of you fills more than usual to avoid having to get a new set and full price. All of your body hair is shedding faster, it is just more noticeable when you have eyelash extensions.
Q. ONE OF MY EYELASHES IS HITTING MY EYELID, IS IT OK FOR ME TO CUT IT?
A: No, please do your best to avoid cutting your eyelash extensions. Doing so can cause you to mess up the design of your set, cut/cause damage to your natural lashes, or damage to your eye. If possible use your brush to put the lash back in place or contact us so that we can fix it for you.
Q. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VOLUME LASH FANS AND CLUSTER FANS?
A: Volume lash extensions and cluster lashes are sometimes mistake as the same thing. THEY ARE NOT THE SAME. A Volume lash set is made up of hand made or pro made fans designed to fit the space and weight needed for your natural lashes. Volume fans are attached to your natural lashes. Cluster lashes are pre made fans at whatever weight the manufacture chooses and are applied to your eyelid/ multiple lashes, causing damage to your natural lashes.
