Who can have eyelash extensions? – Anyone can have lash extensions. The glue does not actually touch the skin therefore it is suitable for pregnant women also.

 

How long do they last? – Lash extensions last anywhere between 4-6 weeks – this will all depend on your own lash shed cycle and how well you look after them.

 

Are eyelash extensions damaging to your natural lash? – Eyelash extensions are only damaging to your natural lash if they are NOT looked after properly. They need to be removed properly and not pulled as this will cause your natural lash to fall out.

What is the aftercare? – Eyelash extensions are very low maintenance; however once getting them done you need to keep them dry for 24 hours. You should not need to put mascara on them therefore this will save you time each day, a small brush will be given to you to give them a brush through.

 

Do they hurt to be fitted? – No, lash extensions do not hurt when having them fitted; your eyes will be closed throughout the treatment but you can just sit back and relax.

 

How often do you get infills? – This is all dependant on how the client likes their lashes and how often their natural lashes fall out, most people will have infills every 3-4 weeks.

 

Should I avoid anything before getting my lash extensions? – You should avoid using oily makeup remover before your treatment as this will act as a barrier to the adhesive and cause the lashes to fall out sooner.

Do I choose how big my eyelash extensions will be? – Yes, with eyelash extensions you can either have a classic natural look or you could have a bigger more glamourous look; this is something you can discuss with the beautician and she will advise you on the best option for you.

 

How long does it take to do eyelash extensions? – It takes roughly and hour and a half to 2 hours to have your extensions done, this is all dependant on how many natural lashes you have.

 

Do I need a patch test? Yes, you will need a patch test of the adhesive before getting lash extensions, this will need to be done at least 24h before your appointment.

 

What do I do when I don’t want my lash extensions anymore? It is very important that you remove lash extensions professionally at the beauty salon!

Many people resort to pulling and picking them which will cause damage to your natural lashes.

 

How can I help the growth of my natural lashes? Some people find that after having lash extensions their natural lashes feel shorter, this can sometimes be that they have just got used to having the longer thicker extensions.

 

However, if you decide to have a break and want to grow your natural lashes you can try a lash serum to help growth or at KJ Cosmetics we offer a lash lift which curls your natural lashes upwards making them look longer and thicker.
