ANSWERING YOUR BURNING QUESTIONS ABOUT LASH EXTENSIONS

Q. WHAT ARE EYELASH EXTENSIONS?

A. Eyelash Extensions are semi permanent false lashes that are applied to a natural lash with an adhesive specific for eyelash extensions. They add length, create a fuller appearance & accentuate the natural lash line in a variety of styling to suit the client.  Each extension is applied to a single isolated natural lash to ensure no damage from multiple lashes sticking together. 

Q. WHAT ARE LASH'D EYELASHES LASH EXTENSIONS MADE OF?

A. Lash'd Eyelash extensions ensure premium quality and cruelty free products. our lashes are made of a synthetic high quality fibre named PBT (Polybutylene terephthalate). 

It is a synthetic semi-crystalline engineered thermoplastic. It is a high performance material with high molecular weight and is often characterized as being a strong, stiff, and engineerable plastic. In eyelash extensions the most commonly used colors are black and dark brown. Many low quality lashes lose their curl when exposed to heat or humidity, PBT has excellent heat resistance for up to 150 degrees celsius and melting point reaching 225 degrees celsius. 

Q. HOW MANY LASH EXTENSIONS ARE APPLIED TO EACH EYE?

A. An average client or lash application can see 50 - 80 lashes per eye. It really depends on the client's natural lashes, their condition and the desired look of the client. If the client is wanting a mega volume look, up to 120 lashes can be applied per eye.

Q. HOW LONG DO LASH EXTENSIONS LAST?

A. With the correct application & after care lashes can last up to 4-6 weeks. To maintain lashes and keep them looking their best, we recommend refills every 3-4 weeks. 

Q. WHY DO CLIENTS NEED REFILLS?

A. As natural lashes continually grow, the lash extensions grow with the natural lashes, losing their original styled shape to suit the clients needs. The extension will then nee to be removed and a new one added the the base of the lash, a 1mm from the client's lash line. In addition, during the time a client has lashes on, wear and tear, twisting, sleeping on them, or any rubbing etc can see a client need these lashes replaced with new ones. Lashes will also naturally start to fall off after a couple of weeks and these extensions will need to be replaced. 


Q. HOW MUCH DOES IT COST FOR EYELASH EXTENSIONS.

A. It depends on the demographic and location of the salon, the lash artists' experience, set price and what lash service is being conducted.  Lash artists are currently charging $100-$150+ for a full set application & more for mega or hand made volume fan application. The products used, time per client, wages, marketing &  general overheads all play a part in how the lash artist prices their sets, in addition to their lashing experience. 

Q. CAN MASCARA BE WORN WITH THE LASH EXTENSIONS?

A. NO, Nope, Never, Nil, Zip, Nada, No mascara at anytime is to be worn with eyelash extensions. It can damage the lashes as its extremely hard to remove, it clumps lash fans together, it damages the adhesive bond with the extensions. 

Q. I AM STUCK IN LOCKDOWN, CAN I APPLY LASH EXTENSIONS TO MYSELF?

A. No! I know there have beeb some Tiktok videos of girls applying lashes to themselves but DO NOT DO IT. The lah adhesive cures due to expose to moisture. What coats your eyeball? Moisture . . . What happens when your eye is open as you bring an extension close to it with adhesive? BURN!! It's dangerous and should only ever be applied by a trained lash artist.
