Do eyelash extensions hurt?

It's essential to visit a qualified professional to ensure your set is applied safely and in the correct way.

Do eyelash extensions ruin your lashes?

Eyelash extensions do not damage your natural eyelashes when they are applied properly. To prevent damage to the natural lashes, lash extensions should be carefully selected (length and thickness) and applied correctly to one natural eyelash at the time.


Do eyelash extensions grow out?

Yes. Since each lash extension is attached to a single natural eyelash, they will fall out naturally. This is due to the client’s natural growth cycle; therefore, an in-fill is recommended every 2-3 weeks!   


Do you wash eyelash extensions?

Yes! Keeping lash extensions clean is the key to long lasting retention and healthy natural lashes. Lash extensions should be washed daily using an eyelash extension cleanser and brush. Read more on eyelash extension aftercare on our blog.
