The procedure will take approximately 1 hour for a full set and approximately 45 minutes for a half set and 1 hour for an in-fill. It is a meticulous procedure that requires patience and concentration so therefore it should not be rushed so that clients can leave with a perfect set of lashes. You relax with your eyes closed and there is no pain as this is a non-invasive procedure. Often clients are so relaxed they fall asleep.
The initial process for lash application takes about two hours as 60-120 individual extensions are meticulously adhered to your own lashes. This painless process is so relaxing that many patients are lulled to sleep during the application. Fill procedures take only approximately 45 minutes, so you can keep your lashes lush on your lunch break.
Approximately 2-4 weeks if you respect your new lashes and take care of them. Remember this is a semi-permanent beauty procedure. Do not be duped by those who promise “permanent” extensions or attachments that last for 2+ months. A real lash’s life cycles is around 25-28 days, and as yours grow and fall out, so will the synthetic ones that are attached. If your hair and nails grow quickly then that may indicate that your lashes also are growing, shedding and renewing themselves quickly so you may find that your lashes will not last as long as someone whose hair growth is slow. Your life style and what work you do will also make a difference how long they last. A ladies lashes working in the food industry where there is alot of heat, steam and oil may not last as well as a lady who works in an air conditioned office. Eyelash extensions will not last for three months; this is false advertising by salons and inexperienced people.
The initial application of lash extensions can last for 2-6 weeks at a time, depending on how you take care of them. With regular fills your lashes can last indefinitely. Forget messy glue and taking time out of your daily routine to apply lashes every day, once your lashes are applied there’s no maintenance (other than periodic fills) to worry with you are ready to start every day with lush lashes from the moment you open your eyes. (And yes, they are water-proof, so enjoy swimming without fear!)
