maximize the life of your lashes

frequent questions about lash extensions

 

How are the lashes applied?

Extensions are made of individual synthetic lashes, carefully and precisely applied to your natural lashes, one by one, by our certified lash artists. We will never use lash clusters as they are extremely damaging to your natural lashes. We use medical grade glue and products of the highest quality that keep your lashes healthy.

Can I get lash extensions if I wear contact lenses?

Yes. The extensions are not touching the eye or the skin and are safe for people wearing contacts.

Can extensions really look natural?

Our eyelash extensions do look natural, since they are applied one by one and follow your lash line. By offering a wide range of styles and types (color, diameter, length, curl type), we are able to make your lashes fuller and longer while respecting your features. Nobody will tell the difference.

How long will lash extensions last?

Lash extensions follow the natural growth cycle of your own lashes. If you follow our after care instructions, and depending on your lifestyle and level of activity, your maintenance appointments can be 2 to 3 weeks apart.

How should I prepare for my appointment?

Prior to your visit, make sure your face is clean and without makeup. Use only water-based cleansers so no oil residue interferes with the bonding agent. We recommend you do not drink coffee, as it will make you blink. Once at Selena’s Lash Studio, be prepared for some relaxing and pampering time.
