What exactly are lash extensions?
Lash extensions are false lashes that are applied to your natural eyelashes with the purpose of creating a fuller, longer or more voluminous look. Each single extension is applied to a single natural lash with safe, permanent adhesive. Neither the adhesive nor the extension comes into contact with your skin at any time.
Who is authorized to apply lash extensions?
In the state of Colorado, a lash technician must have either a cosmetology license or an esthetic's license in order to offer lash extension services. I am both licensed as an esthetician and have received further lash training to become certified in the practice.
Do you offer volume lashes?
No. At this time I am focusing on classic lashes only.
How long do the extensions last?
After your initial set is applied, you will need to have them refilled every 2 to 3 weeks. You naturally lose between 1-3 lashes everyday, and there is generally some breakdown in adhesive after several weeks, resulting in the loss of extensions.
Are extensions damaging to my natural lashes?
Absolutely not. When clients experience damage it is often due to improper application, such as gluing lashes together, gluing lashes to the eyelid and using unapproved products.
What should I expect during a lash appointment?
Applying lashes requires time, skill and a steady hand. Your initial set will take 2 - 2 1/2 hours, and refills 1 - 1 1/2 hours, depending on the amount of lashes you have. During your appointment you will be laying down with your eyes closed and will not be allowed to open them until I am completely finished. It is important that talking is kept to a minimum, as muscle movement shifts the necessary under eye pads and causes eyes to water. Most of my clients are so relaxed they doze off while I'm working.
You will be required to sign a consent form at your first appointment. You can preview it here and ask any questions you have.
Is anyone not a good candidate for lash extensions?
Clients with sensitive eyes are often not a good candidate for extensions, as the adhesive I use is very strong. This includes seasonal allergy sufferers.
Clients who have allergies to acrylic nail products or hair dye are also discouraged from trying this service. (Patch tests are available upon request at no extra charge.)
I am not, at this time, accepting clients under the age of 18.
Pregnant clients should check with their physician first.
