The Ultimate Guide to Lash Extensions: What You Need to Know Before Your First Appointment

Welcome to the world of lash extensions! This revolutionary beauty treatment can transform your look, enhance your natural beauty, and save you time on your daily makeup routine. But, before you step foot in the salon, here's everything you need to know before your first lash extension appointment.

Understanding Lash Extensions

Lash extensions involve attaching individual synthetic lashes to your natural lashes with a special adhesive. Unlike strip lashes, lash extensions are semi-permanent and can last for weeks, giving you a fuller, more glamorous look around the clock.

Pre-Appointment Preparation

Before your appointment, avoid wearing eye makeup, especially mascara and eyeliner. These can interfere with the adhesive. It's also recommended to avoid caffeinated beverages, as they can make your eyes flutter or twitch during the application.

During the Appointment

The lash application process is painless and quite relaxing. You'll lay comfortably on a beauty bed while your lash artist meticulously applies each extension. Depending on the style and volume of lashes you choose, the process can take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours.


For the first 24-48 hours after application, avoid getting your lashes wet to allow the adhesive to fully dry. After this, you can return to your normal activities, but avoid rubbing your eyes or using oil-based makeup products as these can weaken the adhesive.


Lash extensions shed with your natural lashes. To keep your extensions looking full and fresh, we recommend coming in for fill appointments every 2-3 weeks.
