Get Lashed LA Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT ARE INDIVIDUAL EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
This is when one eyelash extension lash is applied to one of your own natural lashes. These are also known as classic eyelash extensions.
WHAT ARE VOLUME EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
These are semi permanent eyelash extensions and are favoured by the customers who want to have more volume on their upper lashes. Volume eyelash extensions are the newest must have for extreme volume lovers. We can create twice as much volume as a Classic full set.
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY APPOINTMENT?
Please ensure your eyelashes are squeaky clean. The glue will bond better when your lashes are clean and oil free. This will also mean the eyelash technician can spend more time applying eyelashes than cleaning them.
HOW LONG IS THE TREATMENT?
The application for classic lashes takes approximately 45 mins to 1 and half hours. For Volume Lashes, the application time is between 2 hours and 3 hours.
HOW LONG DO THE EYELASH EXTENSIONS LAST BEFORE I WILL NEED A FILL?
If you follow the proper after care instructions, these lashes can last 3-4 weeks before you need a fill. However, it depends on your lash cycle. Some clients come in more often than others. These lashes will last 2-3 months before they all fall off.
CAN I USE MASCARA?
If you insist, you can only use oil-free water based mascara on your eyelash extensions. Only on the tip of your lashes, never in the base of your lashes. Please remove your eye make up daily with water or oil free make up remover wipes to keep your eyelash extensions clean and bacteria free.
WILL EYELASH EXTENSIONS DAMAGE MY OWN LASHES?
No, if applied individually and perfectly separated.
WILL I LOSE MY OWN LASHES?
This depends on your natural lash cycle. The average person's lash cycle is 3 months. You may find one of your own lashes stuck to an eyelash extension, this is because your eyelash was due to shed. Our eyelash extensions will not damage your own lashes if you follow the after care step by step.
HOW CAN I REMOVE THE LASHES?
You must always have your eyelash extensions professionally removed to avoid damaging your natural eyelashes. Never pull or rub your eyes if you have any eyelash extensions on!
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
You must keep your eyelashes away from water for the first 24 hours. Avoid sauna's, steam rooms and facials for the first 48 hours after application. Never rub, pull or pick your eyelash extensions as this can cause your natural lashes to fall out or break. Do not sleep on your face as this may cause the lashes to bend in the wrong direction. Use only oil free make up remover, in a down ward motion, not side to side as this can loosen the bonds. You can only wear water soluble mascara (water-based). Do not tint, curl or perm your eyelash extensions.
