Eyelash Extensions FAQ
What are eyelash extensions?
True eyelash extensions are single fiber artificial eyelashes that are applied one at a time to one singe natural eyelash hair.
Can eyelash extensions damage my natural lashes?
When applied properly, extensions do not have the opportunity to cause damage to the natural eyelashes. They actually grow, rest and shed right along with the natural eyelash to which they are applied, so there is no damage to neighboring eyelashes.
How long is the process?
A full set appointment takes about two hours and a touch up appointment takes about one hour.
How long do the eyelash extensions last?
Lash extensions last through the full growth cycle of your natural eyelashes, typically six to eight weeks. Each person’s lash growth is variable just like hair growth. So to maintain a full look we recommend a touch-up every no longer than every three weeks.
Can I still wear mascara?
Mascara is okay for use as long as it is glycol and carbonate-free. We do not recommend using mascara every day as like any wear and tear on the lashes, the more pulling and applying of a sticky substance, the more likely it is to loosen the adhesive bond. Mascara by NovaLash is hypoallergenic, water-soluble, glycol and carbonate-free formula that we recommend clients use when they are in need of a touch-up and natural lashes are peeking through the extensions. Regular mascara on the extensions is not recommended as it is hard to remove and can actually pull off the lashes prematurely when trying to take it off.
Can I still wear eyeliner?
We recommend LASHliner by Novalash to help achieve a more dramatic look, creat a full look if you have sparse lashes, and create a fuller lash look when you need a touch up application. This award-winning lashliner is not your typical eyeliner; its toothipick thin pencil point deposits rich, creamy color deep between the eyelash hairs.
Is it safe to shower, swim, sweat and even sleep with these extensions?
Yes! NovaLash adhesives are waterproof and sweat-proof.
