What woman doesn’t want a pair of fabulous and flirty individual mink eyelash extensions? They are currently one of the most talked about beauty services available! They are individually glued to each one of your existing upper eyelashes. This is done with an cyanoacrylate based glue, which is similar to a surgical adhesive. The eyelash extensions are applied to add length and fullness to your own lashes. We offer eyelashes in many different lengths, for both natural and accentuated looks. You can do an all over long length to achieve a “round eye” look, this is good for smaller eye shapes to make them stand out. Another option is to start from a shorter length in the inner eye and gradually longer length towards the outer eyes to achieve a more sultry “cat eye” look. For your day time look, having them applied is also a great way to minimize the amount of makeup you would need to apply. For evening looks, you can “dress it up” with smokey eyes to emphasize your look. I always have them done for events, such as weddings, vacations, birthdays etc. I especially love them in the summer since you can swim with them, and wear little or no makeup, so no need to worry about it melting off your face! Individual mink eyelashes are the most natural looking, they are really over powering the use of old fashion strip lashes, lengthening serums, and mascaras. Individual lashes definitely come with a little bit of commitment. They require brushing (with a clean mascara wand) every morning, using oil-free makeup remover carefully around the eyes, and of course re-fills. A full set is typically 1.5 hour application, and fills take anywhere from 30-45 minutes. Extensions can last up to 4 weeks, they simply fall out one by one along with your natural lashes. Usually we recommend a fill every 3-4 weeks. Pads are placed over your lower lashes to protect them, with your eyes closed. Using fine tweezers, the technician carefully applies lashes one millimetre above the root of your lash. Lashes should be applied only individually. “Stacking” is a term when 2 or 3 lashes are applied at once, this can be harmful as the weight is too much to handle. For many people, their biggest concern is wondering will their own lashes be in the same condition when they decide to eventually have the lashes removed? The answer is YES! At all costs you must avoid picking at your lashes. They must be removed professionally, which we offer free of charge to clients who are having the full set put on, and are having weekly or monthly refills. If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to call in and speak to one of our experts! If you haven’t tried out individual lashes yet, you are missing out! Give them a try when you have that next big occasion!
