In 2006 I received my Eyelash Extension training after attending a Las Vegas Spa Convention. I have traveled to Chicago, Florida, and New York learning many different techniques and styles of Eyelash Extensions. Including the popular Russian Volume Technique developed by some of the world’s most leading teacher’s in the eyelash industry. A consultation is usually recommended before receiving the lashes to see what best works for you. Eyelash Extensions are an art of perfection. Not only is it important to look at the lash, but at the whole structure of the eye itself.
Classic Eyelash Extensions – A single extension is applied to one isolated natural lash. Classic lashes are perfect for adding length and some fullness to your natural lash line. Classic lashes will give the appearance of wearing mascara but not overly noticeable. Great for someone who just wants a mascara look without the fullness.

Volume Eyelash Extensions – Due to their lightweight nature, volume lashes allow for more customization than classic eyelash extensions. Also known as Russian Volume at this location, there can be multiple eyelashes added on to natural lash. The overall light weight of the extensions allows anywhere from 2-7 lashes per eyelash giving the lashes a longer and fuller look. Most popular lash extension.

Hybrid Eyelash Extensions – Hybrid lashes are a combination of classic and volume lashes. This is achieved by adding long lengths of classic lashes that are strategically placed to create a frame and filled in between with the volume extensions to give a more defined and textured spiky look.

What are Eyelash Extensions?
Each individual eyelash is extended out by a synthetic lash or group of lashes to give you the most natural looking lash in length and volume. Synthetic, Silk or Mink lashes are designed to look identical to your lash to receive a look of perfection. You may choose to have a natural or more of a glamorous look.
How often do I need to come back for a retouch?
About two to three weeks for lashes that have grown out long enough and to replace any that may have fallen out. Natural lashes grow at different lengths and the average life cycle of a natural lash is 90 days.
Do I need to have eyelashes to apply the extensions?
Yes. The eyelash is applied to a natural lash and not the skin. This is safer and gives a more natural look.
Can I use mascara?
There really is no need for mascara. The lashes do come in different thicknesses. If you choose to wear mascara, just make sure it is non waterproof.
Can I use an eyelash curler?
There is no need for curlers as they already have a natural curl to them. If you use an eyelash curler with the extensions it will break the extensions. There are many different curls to perfect the best look for you.
Can they make your regular lashes fall out?
This is a question that comes up and thought I would post it. The eyelash extensions will not make your regular lashes fall out. The only way your regular lash will fall out is do to the regular shedding of the eyelash or if you are pulling or picking on the eyelash extension itself. The extensions are completely safe for your regular eyelashes.
Can I still have the eyelash extensions if my natural lashes grow in a downward position?
Most Definitely. I carry all different designs of eyelashes to fit your lash needs.
I have had the extensions before and they fell out within three days?
The procedure takes one to three hours to perform with anywhere from 25-250 lashes per eye. I use a medical grade adhesive and they are pretty much bonded before you leave to go home. Common reason they might fall out would be applying water to them right away or they have came in contact with any type of oil. Make sure to allow them to bond and dry at least six hours before applying water to them. I will give you after care instructions before you leave so you can enjoy them for many days.
