What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are any number of enhancements designed to add length, thickness and fullness to natural eyelashes. They may be compared to hair extensions for one's eyelashes.
How long does the application take?
The procedure will vary depending on the style of lashes you choose to apply. It is a long procedure that requires patience and concentration, therefore it should not be rushed to ensure clients can leave with a perfect set of lashes. You relax with your eyes closed and there is no pain. Here is a breakdown of approx. application times according to each style:
Classic Full Set- 1.5 hours
Hybrid Full Set- 2 hours
Volume Full Set- 2.5 hours
Fills will not take this long each time. Your technician will educate you on the fill times when you receive your service.
Do the extensions damage my eyelashes?
Properly applied semi-permanent eyelash extensions do not cause damage to your natural lashes. Virtually weightless, these single synthetic strands are designed to be applied one by one to natural lashes, however the right technique and training is absolutely crucial to a safe and beautiful application.
How often should I get touch ups?
It is recommended getting a touch up every two to four weeks as your lashes fall off every 60 to 90 days on average. Each of your natural eyelashes is at a different stage of its life cycle. A touch up is needed to replenish the lashes that have completed their life cycle. Touch ups generally take a short time and are relatively inexpensive.
Is the lash glued to my skin?
No, the extension lashes are glued about 2mm away from your skin. Neither the synthetic lash nor the glue ever comes in contact with your skin.
Each individual eyelash is attached to your natural lash until the whole eye is filled. Atrina will design your eye with individual lashes according to the style your are trying to achieve.
