F.A.Q

Frequently Asked Question

FAQ:

WHAT ARE SEMI-PERMANENT EYELASH EXTENSIONS?

They are individual extensions made of a synthetic material to look like perfect natural eyelashes; thicker at the base and thinner at the tip with a slight curl. They come in many different colors; the most popular is Solid Black. They are adhered one by one to a natural lash with a medical-grade bonding adhesive giving the appearance of a darker, more voluptuous lash-line.

HOW LONG DO SEMI-PERMANENT EYELASH EXTENSIONS LAST?

An average eyelid has approximately 100 natural hairs which shed at an average rate of 20-30% every 2 weeks. Therefore, when the natural hair sheds, so does the extension that was attached to it. Since new hairs are always growing in, refills can be performed to attach extensions to the new growth keeping the lashes looking full continuously or for as long as you wish to maintain them.

HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED A REFILL?

On average, refills are recommended every 2-3 weeks to keep the lashes looking their best. With proper maintenance semi-permanent eyelash extensions can be kept up indefinitely through regular refills.

WILL THE EYELASH EXTENSIONS DAMAGE MY NATURAL HAIRS?

Our application technique and premium products will not damage your natural lashes. It is imperative to the health of your lashes to have each natural hair isolated when an extension is adhered to it and ensure proper separation so that the hairs can continue to grow and shed as they would naturally. We only use formaldehyde-free, medical-grade adhesives which are made exclusively for lash extensions and offer a more sensitive adhesive for our guests who are more prone to allergic reactions. This combination of our top quality adhesive and individual lash attachment will sustain the health and integrity of the natural hairs indefinitely.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CLASSIC AND MULTI-VOLUME PLUS (MVP) EYELASH EXTENSIONS?

Classic Lash extensions are our signature lash application where the attachment of 1 extension is applied to 1 natural eyelash. The result is an enhanced lash line, yet very natural and realistic in appearance. Multi-Volume Plus lash extensions are our premium volume lash application where we apply 2 or more of our lightest lash extensions to 1 natural eyelash. Our MVP lashes offer incredible fullness and last longer than our classic lash application while still providing an enhanced natural appearance.

CAN YOU DESCRIBE THE APPLICATION PROCESS?

The application process is very relaxing, just like receiving a spa service. You will lie back on a plush table and have your eyes closed the entire time. The application is very gentle and can be best described as though someone is gently brushing through your lashes. The service generally takes between 60 to 120 minutes to apply a full set and refills can be done in as little as 30 to 60 minutes. The procedure is so relaxing and comfortable that many clients fall asleep.

HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF THESE EYELASH EXTENSIONS ONCE THEY’RE ON?

It can take up to 8 hours for the eyelash extension adhesive to fully cure the bond between your natural lash and the extensions. Avoid swimming, spas, saunas and tanning on the day of your lash appointment. After the 8 hours, they are able to get wet. While sleeping, lashes can tangle or flip to the side. Brush through your lashes each morning with a clean mascara wand to reshape the extension and keep them fluffed into place. The overall upkeep is very minimal and very easy to manage.

WHAT SHOULD I DO PRIOR TO MY APPOINTMENT?

  • Remove all eye makeup and clean your natural lashes with an oil-free cleanser.
  • If you wear contact lens, we recommend removing them.
  • Avoid caffeine and any other stimulants that may cause your eyes to flutter involuntarily.
  • Refrain from curling or perming your natural lashes prior to receiving your full set.

CAN I HAVE MY EYELASH EXTENSIONS REMOVED?

Eyelash extensions can be easily removed by A Stylist using a special gel remover formulated to quickly dissolve the medical-grade adhesive and gently wipe away the lash extensions. The process is painless and will not harm your natural hairs – taking less than 30 minutes. Please do not attempt to remove lash extensions yourself as this can cause damage to your natural lashes.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I NEED TO CANCEL MY APPOINTMENT?

If you need to cancel your appointment, we simply request that you do so at least 24 hours in advance. If you do not cancel within 24 hours of your appointment, you will be considered a no-show for that appointment and your card on file will be charged the full amount of the scheduled service. If you need to cancel during non-business hours, feel free to leave a message on the salon’s voicemail.

FAQ: LASH LIFT & TINT

  • WHAT IS A LASH LIFT & TINT?

    A lash lift is a chemical process that is used to change the structure and texture of the lashes. Depending on the size of the shield used, the lashes can be lifted more or less dramatically. A lash lift is essentially a modern version of a lash perm without the perming rods.

  • WILL THE LASH LIFT DAMAGE MY NATURAL LASHES?

    No. Properly trained and skilled professionals ensure proper lash lift procedures are followed.

  • HOW LONG WILL MY LASH APPOINTMENT TAKE?

    About 40 – 50 minutes depends on how long and coarse the eyelashes are and if your lashes will be tinted.

  • HOW LONG DO LASH LIFT & TINT LAST?

    A lash lift and tint can last anywhere between 6 to 8 weeks. Results may vary from client to client depending their lash growth cycle. There are some situations that may cause the lift to drop/weaken prematurely such as swimming, use off harsh products or heat. If you find that your lift does not last the full 2 months, you can repeat the treatment after a minimum of 4 weeks of having the initial treatment, but not before.

  • HOW OFTEN DO I GET A LSH LIFT & TINT?

    A lash lift will begin to naturally drop after about 2 months and your lashes will be back to their natural look. The lashes should drop evenly and will not look out of place. You can repeat the treatment after a minimum of one month if you feel you need to, or you can wait until they are back to their natural state.

  • CAN I WEAR MASCARA ON MY LASHES?

    Yes but it is advised that you leave your lashes untouched for at least 24 hours after your treatment. You may find that there is no need for mascara anyway, but if you wish to make your lashes even fuller, a non-waterproof mascara is advised as the removal of waterproof mascaras can be harsh on the lashes and weaken the lift.

  • CAN I USE A EYELASH CURLER?

    No. There will be no need for an eyelash curler as this treatment gives a much better result than using a curler, But more importantly, using one may weaken and damage your lashes.

  • HOW DO I CLEAN MY EYES?

    Gently, using mild products. Always wait 24 hours to do this, straight after the procedure.
