You should arrive 10-15 minutes early for your first eyelash extension appointment in order to fill out forms and to discuss your medical history, lifestyle, and desired look during your consultation. Once this is complete, you will be escorted to a comfy bed where your eyelash extension application will be performed. The application will begin with a thorough cleansing of the lash and eye area. The cleansing process will allow for a stronger bond between your natural lashes and the eyelash extensions. After a thorough cleanse, the lash stylist will begin to apply eyelash extensions to each individual natural lash. Upon completion of the procedure, you will have anywhere from 70-100 eyelash extensions applied. This process will take approximately 2.5 hours for your first set.
Depending on the look you desire and the number of natural lashes you have (the average person has anywhere from 120-180 natural lashes), the amount of lashes applied during your eyelash extension will vary. We adhere by the standard minimum of 70 lashes per eye.
In order to maintain the desired eyelash look and properly take care of your eyelashes, you should return every 2-3 weeks for routine maintenance and re-lash appointments.

No. If applied properly, eyelash extensions should not interfere with your natural lash growth cycle (natural lashes grow in and fall out every 60-90 days). The process should not damage your natural lashes, either. In fact, extensions often blend seamlessly with your natural lashes in order to create the most natural looking eyelash extensions.
Eyelash extension appointments vary depending on the type of set you get along with the appointment time. Accounts/cards are charged based on the booked service appointment. If you book a 90 minute appointment and the artist is able to complete everything in 60 minutes, a 90 minute time slot will still be deducted or charged against your account/card. This is because we reserve the entire time slot for you. If you're unsure how much time you'll need or what type of appointment you should book, please don't hesitate to contact us or ask the artist what service or time slot you should book.
It’s very important to understand the hair growth cycle in order to recognize and understand many of the problems you can encounter with your hair. The hair growth cycle consists of three distinct stages – anagen, catagen and telogen.
Your hair grows around half an inch a month, and faster in the summer than in winter. The growth phase, or anagen phase, lasts an average of 3-5 years, so a full-length hair averages 18 to 30 inches. The anagen phase is generally longer in Asians, and can last as much as 7 years with hair being able to grow to 1 metre.
At the end of the anagen phase, your hair enters the catagen phase. A short transitional phase that lasts approximately 10 days.
Lastly, your hair enters the telogen phase, a resting phase when your hair is released and falls out. The follicle then remains inactive for 3 months and the whole process is repeated. Each hair follicle is independent and goes through the growth cycle at different times, otherwise all your hair would fall out at once. Instead, you only shed a certain number of hairs a day – up to 80 hairs on a healthy head of hair.
Hair loss, hair thinning and problems with hair growth occur when your growth cycle is disrupted. This can be triggered by conditions such as metabolic imbalances, illness or improper nutrition.
For instance, 6 weeks after restrictive dieting or a high fever you can experience telogen effluvium (diffuse hair fall). This occurs when your anagen phase is cut short and many hairs enter the telogen phase all at the same time. If your hair growth cycle is constantly challenged, or not supported, you may find that your hair won’t grow as long as it used to. This is because your hairs are never allowed to stay in the anagen (growing) phase long enough for your hairs to reach the desired length.
