The modern woman has suggested that the three most important beauty must-haves are flawless skin, gorgeous hair, and full lashes. Eyelash extensions can help with the latter, giving you head-turning eyelashes and saving you time on your daily beauty regime.
EvelineCharles now offers Eyelash Extensions at a variety of our locations.
Below are some Frequently Asked Questions that will educate you on “everything lashes”!
How are eyelash extensions applied?
Lash extensions are applied individually, one by one, 1 millimeter away from the eyelid to your natural eyelashes using a medical-grade adhesive. Lash extensions come in varying lengths, thicknesses, and curls. The results can vary from very subtle and natural to very noticeable and dramatic.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure can take anywhere from 1 hour to 2.5 hours, depending on the type of extensions received.
Do eyelash extensions hurt?
No, eyelash extensions are painless. Most clients feel comfortable enough to fall asleep during the procedure. At EvelineCharles, we use superior quality products to bring the highest level of comfort possible for our clients.
What do I need to do before my appointment?
Please arrive with no makeup on or around the eye area. On the day of your appointment, avoid using any oil-based products around your eyes. Your eyelashes must be clean for the eyelash adhesive to bond properly to your natural lashes.
Do eyelash extensions damage my real eyelashes?
No, they do not. As long as you do not vigorously rub your eyes or pull on your extensions, your natural lashes will remain just as they were before application. It is important to note that just as the hair on your head sheds, so do your lashes, so do not be frightened if a few fall out with your extensions – Instead, make a wish!
Can I still wear eye makeup and mascara?
We do not recommend wearing mascara on top of your extensions because it is difficult to remove from the extensions without pulling at your natural eyelashes. It is suggested to use oil-free cosmetics when removing makeup close to the eye area while wearing eyelash extensions.
Can I use an eyelash curler to curl my lash extensions?
No, an eyelash curler will break the bond on your extensions and will damage your natural eyelashes.
How long do eyelash extensions last?
Eyelash extensions will last 3-5 weeks, depending on a number of factors such as aftercare, hair quality, and environment.
What can I do to make my extensions last longer?
Do not get the extensions wet for the first 24 hours after your appointment. It is important to give the adhesive plenty of time to bond to the natural lash. As well, avoid vigorous rubbing of the eyes or pulling of your lashes. Do not use oil-based makeup or makeup removers. On the day of your appointment, our EC eyelash specialists will provide more recommendations on how to make your extensions last longer.
When do I have to get them retouched?
We suggest that clients come in for touch-ups every 3-4 weeks. Clients who prefer to maintain a very full look come in on a weekly or biweekly basis.
How do you remove eyelash extensions?
Eyelash removals are done at one of our EC salons by the lash artist. Please do not attempt to remove the lash extensions yourself, as you may damage your natural lashes. It is best to schedule an appointment to have them professionally removed. You may also wait for the eyelash extensions to fall off naturally due to your lash cycle.
How much do they cost?
A full set of EvelineCharles Eyelash Extensions cost $180+, depending on the length and thickness you receive.
A fill set – meant for maintenance – will cost $90+.
