EYELASH EXTENSIONS FAQ
Eyelash Extensions are what all the rage is about in Hollywood! They are a popular new product that lengthens and thickens your own natural lashes. They are single strands of sterile synthetic eyelashes that have a built-in curl to replicate a natural lash. They are applied to each individual eyelash with a specially designed bonding agent by HRH Beauty's eyelash experts for a natural, beautiful and luscious look. Eyelash Extensions are perfect for that special occasion or for everyday wear. They are virtually weightless and will not damage your natural lash so you can choose to wear them permanently if you so desire.
Are they harmful to my natural lashes?
Not at all! Our technicians carefully apply each eyelash extension to your own natural eyelashes individually (without touching the skin) with a specially designed bonding agent developed exclusively for eyelash extensions. If applied properly, as with our experienced eyelash technicians, this new technique is not harmful to your natural eyelashes. The extensions are weightless, soft and flexible.
How will I look once Eyelash Extensions are applied?
We will work with you 100% through the entire process to achieve your desired look. With proper application, meaning one eyelash at a time, the look and feel is completely natural looking and real. No one will know you have extensions. Others will just think you were born with beautiful, long and luxurious lashes!
How long will Eyelash Extensions last?
Eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes when applied properly. Everyone's experience will differ based on day to day activities and home care. Refills or touch-ups are required every 2 to 3 weeks generally.
How often should I get my Eyelash Extensions filled?
We recommend getting a fill every 2 to 3 weeks. If you wait too long you may require a full set. A fill appointment takes about 30 to 45 minutes.
Can I apply mascara to Eyelash Extensions?
Yes, although mascara is not really needed since the extensions actually give the illusion of wearing mascara, it can be worn. However, it must only be a water-based mascara and take extra care when removing the mascara every night. Do not scrub and cleanse gently.
Can I resume all my normal activities while wearing Eyelash Extensions?
Yes. You can shower, swim, exercise etc with no problems. However, we do recommend that you do not wash your eye area for approximately 2-4 hours after the eyelash application.
Can I use eyelash curlers with Eyelash Extensions?
We do not recommend this as it can damage the eyelash extensions and your natural lashes, however it is possible. Just be extra careful. Eyelash curlers are not needed as the eyelash extensions have a curl built into them. If you desire more curl to your lashes, just let our eyelash expert know.
Aftercare routine for my new Eyelash Extensions?
Do not get lashes wet for 2-4 hours after application
Avoid hot steam or sauna
Avoid hot temperatures from oven and stove
Avoid running water directly on your lashes
Avoid rubbing your eyes
Apply mascara only on the middle and tips of your eyelashes, avoid root area
Use water based eye makeup remover
Do not perm your lashes
Do not use a mechanical eyelash curler
Do not pull on your lashes (this may cause your natural lashes to come out prematurely)
Is the product FDA approved? Is it safe?
Since eyelash extensions are applied to the natural eyelash hairs and do not touch the skin, FDA is not regulating eyelash extensions. The application process is pain-free and very relaxing however, improper application by an unqualified or inexperienced eyelash technician can cause damage to your natural lashes. We recommend only using a certified eyelash extension specialist like ours at HRH Beauty.
How long does take to apply Eyelash Extensions and how is it done?
The application process for a full set of lash extensions normally takes 2 hours with an experienced technician. Many technicians will take short cuts and complete a full set in 30 minutes to an hour. Often, these result in poor application and eventual damage to your normal eyelashes. During the appointment, you will lay comfortably on a bed with your eyes closed. Our Eyelash Expert will then apply a soothing under eye gel pad to cover your lower lashes. The extensions will then be applied to each individual eyelash with a specially designed adhesive.
Can I choose the look I want?
We will consult with you first to achieve your desired look. Since eyelash extensions come in various curls, lengths and thicknesses, just let us know if you prefer a more natural look or a more glamourous look. The most desired look is to achieve a glamorous but natural look.
Can the eyelash extension be removed?
Yes, at any time! If you have had an improper eyelash extension application somewhere other than HRH Beauty or simply wish to have them removed, we provide that service also. It is a simple, quick, easy and painless procedure where we use a specially formulated solution that will break down the adhesive and safely remove your extensions without damaging your natural lash. Please do not attempt to remove the lash extensions yourself as this will cause damage and premature loss of your natural lashes.
What are the ingredients of the Eyelash Extension Glue?
Our fast drying eyelash extension glue ingredients are Cyanoacrylate, Methacrylate, Hydroquinone, Polyamide Resin and Carbon Black.
Are eyelash extensions suitable for everyone?
Yes! Eyelash extensions are suitable for any age groups and ethnicities. Ladies who have undergone chemotherapy (and their lashes are starting to grow back) are a great candidate. What better way to build your confidence again!
HOWEVER, IF YOU HAVE AN EYE INFECTION OR HAVE RECENTLY UNDERGONE ANY EYE SURGERY IT IS RECOMMENDED TO WAIT UNTIL THE EYE AREA HAS COMPLETELY HEALED.
