FAQs:

Q: What exactly are lash extensions?
A: This is when a synthetic, artificial lash is attached to one of your own individual real lashes, to create the illusion of longer, fuller eyelashes.
   
Q: Will they need maintenance?
A: Yes. Our own natural lash cycle completely replenishes itself about every 90 days and at any one time, you have a mixture of short, medium and long length lashes. As each lash grows longer, it will eventually fall out and be replaced by a new 'baby lash'. Therefore, in order to keep the lashes looking tidy and full, infills are required approximately every 2-3 weeks (depending on your own lash cycle).
   
Q: Do I need or can I wear mascara with them?
A: There is no need to wear mascara on the top lashes when wearing lash extensions and in fact, it is much better to avoid doing this, as it can cause the lashes to fall out prematurely and also attract dirt and debris to the extensions. You can, if you choose, wear NON waterproof mascara on the bottom lashes but this MUST be removed with an oil free makeup remover. NO mascara is particularly important when wearing Russian Volume lashes, as it will clog and close the fans.
   
Q: I've heard that having lash extensions can ruin your own lashes?
A: When applied correctly, professionally and providing clients follow the aftercare advice (no picking, scratching, rubbing etc), lash extensions will NOT cause any damage to your natural lashes at all. As long as this is adhered to by technician and client, there is no need to take 'lash breaks' and you can wear lash extensions for as long as you like. A competent and skilled lash technician will always choose the most suitable weight and length of artificial lashes for your own lashes and must always follow the correct isolation techniques to avoid any lashes sticking together.
   
Q: Why do I need a patch test when I've had lash extensions at another salon?
A: When applied correctly, professionally and providing clients follow the aftercare advice (no picking, scratching, rubbing etc), lash extensions will NOT cause any damage to your natural lashes at all. As long as this is adhered to by technician and client, there is no need to take 'lash breaks' and you can wear lash extensions for as long as you like. A competent and skilled lash technician will always choose the most suitable weight and length of artificial lashes for your own lashes and must always follow the correct isolation techniques to avoid any lashes sticking together.
   
Q: What is the difference between Classic and Russian lashes?
A: Classic lashes (or original/individual) as they are sometimes referred to, are when a single synthetic lash is applied to an individual natural lash, to create the desired effect. The amount of lashes applied will be determined by the amount of natural lashes the client has.
Russian Volume lashes are a very advanced technique, where a 'multiple fan' of super lightweight lashes is created first and then attached to an individual natural lash. This can create the effect of the client having more natural lashes than they really have and therefore, many more 'looks' can be achieved with this technique.
