How long do extensions last?
On average, lashes can last 3-4 weeks before needing a fill. This is an average only and depends on many things: your lash cycle, how well the lashes are cared for and even stress. It varies from person to person, and fill to fill.
What's the difference between classic and volume?
Classic lashes is one extension on each natural lash strong enough to hold an extension. Volume lashes involve hand made fans of 2-5 extensions on each natural lash strong enough to hold an extension.
Do you use mink lashes?
No. I am an animal lover and will not use mink lashes. I use premium synthetic (made with PBT, the industry standard) lashes which look and feel soft and fluffy.
Do you have coloured lashes?
Yes! The majority of lashes I have in stock are black, but I do have some ombre lashes that are black at the base and either blue or purple at the tips. They're beautiful!
How long does it take for extensions?
It takes 2-3 hours to apply a full set of lashes, depending on how many natural lashes you have. Fills take 1-1.5 hours depending on how many extensions are remaining at the time of the fill. Many lash techs assign a certain amount of time for either a full set or a fill and you get what you get in that amount of time. I prefer that every possible lash has an extension on it when you leave so the time varies.
Can I wear eye makeup with lash extensions?
Yes! Mascara won't be necessary and other eye makeup is fine. Avoid oil based products as much as possible as the oil will degrade the glue used to adhere the extensions to the natural lashes. When removing eye makeup, it is best to use either Micellar water or face wipes as most make up removers are oil based.
What is a lash lift?
A lash lift is basically like a perm for your eyelashes. It curls them for 6-8 weeks, but it won't make your lashes longer or fuller like extensions can. We can make them darker though by tinting them at the same time.
What teeth whitening system do you use?

Can anyone have teeth whitening done?
Almost. Teeth whitening with Beautiful Bright Smile is not suitable for anyone under the age of 16, pregnant, or has full dentures. If you have fillings, crowns or partials, the gel will lift any stain that has accumulated on these pieces and restore them to the colour they were when placed. It is also safe for people with gum recession.
