Lash extensions are a new technique for thicker, longer, natural-looking eyelashes. Eyelashes are made thicker and longer through professional application of individual, synthetic hairs that look just like your own natural lash hairs.
Also known as 1:1 method, classic lash extensions adhere one artificial lash per one natural lash Classic lashes are perfect for clients who already have a lot of lashes, but want to add more length. Classic lashes look more natural.
Mini, Standard, or Extended Fills
Fills are offered according to amount of time and are offered as Mini (.5hr), Standard (1hr), or Extended (1.5hrs). Please choose the right amount of time for your lashes! Every natural lash line is different; some have more lashes, some cycle faster, some are oily and struggle with retention. Please schedule the frequency of your fills and specific time needed according to your natural lashes so we can get you back to 100%!

Fills vs. Full Sets
Fills are required every 2-3 weeks with 50% of your extensions remaining. Coming to your appointment with less than 50% will require a full set. Fills that are scheduled beyond 3 weeks from your previous appointment are required to schedule a full set. Please inform me 24 hours before your appointment if you have less than 50% of lashes to avoid a fee. After three weeks, a new full set will be required.
Clean Lashes and Lash Line
Clients MUST arrive with a very clean lash line, free of build up for EVERY APPOINTMENT. This means routinely and adequately cleansing the lash line with an appropriate oil-free cleanser and brush. Washing the lashes the day of will not remove layers of build up that can accumulate from dead skin, oils, and makeup. In order to preserve the health of natural lashes and to maintain the ability to perform the service (newly placed lashes will not correctly adhere to dirty lashes.) Cleansing lashes everyday will prolong the life of the extensions. If you are unable to remove eye make-up before your appointment, you may arrive early enough to use the remover in our bathroom.
Eyelash Extension Aftercare
THE FIRST 24-HOURS
The first 24-hours are crucial for a strong bond. For the first 24-hours after application the lashes should not be exposed to water or steam to allow the adhesive time to fully bond. We recommend avoiding swimming and the spa for 48 hours after lash application for best results.
YOU MUST GROOM YOUR LASHES DAILY to keep them healthy and to prevent damage to your eyes and natural lashes. Lash extension-safe cleanser and brushes available at Face to Face.
Natural oils, debris, and dead skin cells get trapped in your lash line and affect retention of future fills as well as pose a threat of infection with lash extensions.
Gently brush your lashes each morning with a clean mascara wand to keep them straight and fluffy.
SWEAT AND HUMIDITY
Salt in sweat will break down the adhesive. After exercising, cleanse the lashes to prevent a loss of extensions. Hot Yogis will find lash retention a difficult task. The combination of sweat and humidity is a brutal combination for lash extensions.
· Pick or pull at your lash extensions. This is the fastest way to damage your natural lashes.
· Wear mascara. Mascara will break down the adhesive of lash extensions as well as cause a clumping of lashes. Water-proof mascara will completely destroy lash extensions.
· Use eye lash curlers.
· Use oil-based products on or around the lashes. Oil breaks the bond of the adhesive causing a loss of lashes. Use only felt or pen tipped liners. Those with oily naturally oily skin may find lash retention a challenge.
· Get a spray tan within the 24-hour period before or after lash application.
· Sleep on your face. Satin or silk pillowcases will help prevent lash loss for side sleepers. 3-D eye masks are available at Face to Face to help prevent lash loss at night.
