Many clients have asked this question. We first, explain, the extensions are placed individually per each individual natural eyelash. The average human eye has 150-200 lashes per eye, we apply extensions to every individual natural eyelash. Therefore, the extensions will grow and shed out with your natural eyelashes.It is normal to lose 5 -7 natural eyelashes per day... How long the extensions last in-between "fills" really depends on how well the extensions are maintained in-between the fills by the client (following proper after-care), as well as, how fast your own natural eyelashes grow. Most clients return for a fill every 2 weeks to maintain the fullness of their extensions. If extensions are applied for a special occasion or a one-time application and you do not maintain them with fills, then, your extensions will gradually fall off over the next 4-5 weeks. When applied correctly, you can enjoy your eyelash extensions forever; they will not cause damage to your natural eyelashes when the proper weight and length is used. Most of our eyelash clients have had extensions on for over 5 years with no lash loss or damage.
Eyelash extensions that are applied incorrectly lasting upwards of 6-8 weeks (clumped together to neighboring natural eyelashes) cannot shed naturally or individually and they will eventually cause follicular damage to your natural eyelashes... . Eyelash extensions should NEVER be clumpy, stuck together, coming out in clumps, painful nor should you be able to see the adhesive...this would be an in-proper application. It is VERY important to do your homework BEFORE having eyelash extensions applied to your eyes...
*Look for individuals who have received proper training from a reputable company, not just a 6-8 hr weekend course. This is a skilled technique, and it takes a lot of time and practice to perfect the application.
*Ask what products they are using.
*Make sure the technician is properly licensed and insured to perform this service, and do not be afraid to ask?
*Ask to see credentials; before and after photos of ACTUAL clients, not stock images.
*Is the facility clean, are the products clean, are the implements clean?
*Does the technician understand her/his products and why they react the way they do with certain environments?
*Is the technician able to answer all your questions with an understanding of the product and service they are representing?
*Do not look for a "deal" when getting eyelash extensions, that is what you will get. If someone has a wait list for their services, this is most likely because they are worth the wait, get on the wait list.
*Above all, trust yourself, if it just doesn't feel right, don't do it.
