    Frequently Asked Questions
    • Q:

      Do eyelash extensions make your natural lashes fall out?

      A:

      Eyelash extensions don’t make your lashes fall out.  You lashes go through a lift cycle on average of between 60 – 90 days and they all grow individually at different stages losing on average 1 – 3 lashes per day.  You’re more aware of the lashes coming out when you have the extensions purely because your lashes are more noticeable.

    • Q:

      When my eyelash extensions came out, my natural lashes came with them, should this happen?

      A:

      Some people worry when they see an eyelash extension come out with one of their eyelashes attached to it.  Eyelash extensions are designed to stay on your lashes until your natural lash falls out, so when you see an extension come out with one of you lashes on it, don’t worry that’s exactly what’s supposed to happen, unless of course if you catch the extension and pull it out prematurely.

    • Q:

      Why do my natural eyelashes look shorter than before when I stopped having eyelash extensions?

      A:

      You’ve been used to having beautiful eyelash extensions, so when don’t have them, it’s always going to make your natural lashes appear much shorter than before.

      In some cases if you continue having eyelash extensions for a long time and you have a thicker extension than your own eyelashes (some people just really want thicker lashes), the weight of the extension may encourage you individual lashes to come out slightly earlier than they would without the extension.  Which in effect reduces you lash cycle slightly.  So for example if you have an 8 week cycle this may be reduced to a 7 week cycle.  But don’t worry, it doesn’t damage the actual lashes, and they will grow back to the same length as before if you stop having the extensions.

    • Q:

      Are lash extensions put on every single lash?

      A:

      Some technicians do place them on each and every lash, I don’t.  I avoid putting extensions on a baby lashes as this can cause damage if the lash is too young to take the weight.  I tend to work with the natural lash cycle so when you come back for in fills your baby lashes would have grown longer and healthier ready for the new extension, your old lash would have fallen out and a new baby starting to grow in its place.

    • Q:

      Why do my eyelash extensions hurt?

      A:

      Eyelash extensions should not hurt; you shouldn’t be able to feel anything.  If the eyelash extension does hurt, one or more of the extensions may be stuck to your skin, but they should never have been applied to the skin, only the lashes.  If you experience any sort of swelling the lashes would need to be taken off straight away, although this is very rare.

    • Q:

      Is there anything I can use to keep my eyelashes in good condition while I’m wearing eyelash extensions?

      A:

      Yes there are plenty of lash serums on the market that will help strengthen and grow the lashes, however, you will need to use one that’s oil free, and it really needs to be one that you paint on at the base of the lashes on the skin, not the lashes.

    • Q:

      I have read that a number of consumers have had their lashes ruined by eyelash extensions. Can this really happen?

      A:

      There have been reports online and in the press about damage caused by lash extensions. These reports are mainly due to inexperienced technicians that do not have the experience of several hundred procedures of eyelash extensions behind them and have not trained to a master technician level.

      Ideally the best way to find a reputable technician is through recommendation, either from friends or checking out online reviews,  it’s also worth checking out their qualifications and asking to see  their portfolio of lash extensions they have actually completed and not just images of stock photos.

      Any good technician will take time to complete a consulting session with you beforehand and be happy to answer any questions that you may have.

    • Q:

      Is there any difference between the different brands of lash extensions such as Nouveau Lashes, Jinny Lashes, Lash perfect etc?

      A:

      There are some differences, in particular the quality of the lashes, I specialise in natural looking lashes.  I prefer to use top quality lashes and bonding agent, and I offer a selection of different lashes to choose from.

      I trained in Nouveau lashes to the master level but the main factor in ensuring a good set of eyelash extensions is down to the skill of the technician and not the brand.

    • Q:

      Can lash extensions be placed on the bottom lashes?

      A:

      Yes they can be placed on the bottom lashes and I have performed this procedure before. However, I do not usually recommend bottom lash extensions as it needs to be performed with the eyes open and therefore weaker glue that does have any fumes needs to be used.

      The downside of this means that the bottom lashes do not last as long as the top lashes, it incurs an extra cost which is not necessary. I usually recommend a water based mascara to be used on the bottom lashes to give a more balanced look. It’s also cheaper!
