Types of Lashes
Strip/Band lashes and Cluster lashes are NOT individual lash extensions!!!
There are two main types of false lashes:
1. temporary false lashes
2. semi-permanent eyelash extensions.
Temporary False Lashes:
Temporary false lashes, also known as Strip or Band Lashes and Clusters or Flare lashes, are designed to be worn for a single day. They are not meant to be worn while showering, sleeping, or swimming. These lashes are typically made with various materials and are applied using lash glue specifically formulated for temporary use. At our establishment, we do not offer Strip band or cluster lashes.
Semi-Permanent Eyelash Extensions:
Semi-permanent eyelash extensions, also known as individual eyelash extensions, provide a longer-lasting solution. These extensions are applied using an FDA-approved adhesive with a strong bond. Generally, a single extension is meticulously attached to each natural lash. It's important that neither the extension lash nor the glue touch the eyelid during the application process.
The bond created by the adhesive is designed to last until the natural lash sheds, allowing the extension to fall out naturally. However, factors such as using oil-based eye makeup remover or frequently rubbing the eyes can cause the extensions to fall out faster, as the oil weakens the bond between the glue and the lash. On average, eyelash extensions remain intact for approximately 3-4 weeks, following the natural growth and shedding cycle of the lashes.
To maintain full and luscious eyelashes, regular refilling sessions are recommended every 2-3 weeks. Eyelash extensions are waterproof, eliminating the need for mascara and offering the appearance of perfectly applied makeup without the clumping or smudging. To keep the extensions in optimal condition, it is essential to refrain from rubbing the eyes and avoid using mascara. Instead, opt for oil-free makeup removal wipes and gentle eyelid cleansers when cleansing the eye area.
When it comes to eyelash extensions, there is a wide range of options to choose from. They come in various lengths, colors, and thicknesses, catering to different preferences and styles. Whether you desire a natural look, a glamorous appearance, or a more dramatic effect, there is an eyelash extension style that suits your needs.
