How Long Do They Last?
If you’d like to keep your eyelash extensions indefinitely, you can maintain them by coming in for “infills” every 2-4 weeks.
An infill is a touch-up appointment to refresh your extensions and make them look brand new again. It doesn’t take as long or cost as much as the original set – it simply replaces the lashes that have fallen out over time so that your extensions always look perfect.
Can Extensions Damage My Natural Lashes?
Unqualified or unskilled “technicians” can rush through jobs, use too much glue or even use the wrong type of glue (cheap glue usually imported from China). We use the highest quality glue available and would never risk your health with inferior products.
We only apply one extension to one natural lash, so you will never feel discomfort or get early lash fall (which can happen if your natural lashes get glued together, or heavy extensions are used).
How Long Does The Application Take?
Infills take around 30 minutes and you have the option of adding a ‘lash boost’ which takes another 15 minutes.
Keep in mind that our application is much faster than some salons because we have highly trained lash techs who do this all day every day and build up speed gradually. Plus we use very high-quality fast drying lash glue, so where most salons use an 8-second drying glue, we use a 2-second glue which takes much more skill to use correctly but obviously speeds up the application significantly.
Are Eyelash Extensions Right For Me?
Keep in mind that lash extensions may not be for everyone – especially if you have had the following:
an allergic reaction to gel pads or eyelash extension adhesive before
sensitive eyes e.g. they often swell, itch, water
have an eye infection or medical condition that affects your lash and eye health
have recently had eye surgery/cosmetic eye treatments – eg. eyeliner tattoo, lash perm, LASIK
cannot lie still on your back for a long time due e.g. pregnancy or back problems
are unable to follow the advised aftercare e.g. you aren’t willing to switch to oil-free eye products or absolutely must shower within the first 24 hours.

How Do I Take Care Of My Extensions?
Make sure you don’t get them wet for at least 24 hours after application. This includes showering.
Don’t pull at them or rub your eyes.
Don’t use any products that contain oil. This means mascara, but also any facial cleaners or moisturisers – using these can loosen the bond of the glue.
