I am a blond person, does it look fake if I do black lashes?
We recommend lash tint for blond clients for two main reasons. Firstly, if you do the lash tint prior to your lash extensions application, they look much darker and more visible for the technician to see them so, the procedure will be faster and technician will get more time to apply more lashes on. Secondly, if you feel the lashes are too dark to match to your hair color we do offer dark brown extensions to suit your hair color.

Generally, eyelash extensions are safe procedures. However, we do not recommend the treatment for our pregnant clients. For two main reasons.

Secondly, as your hormones level change during pregnancy it might happen that you get an allergic reaction to adhesive fume.

Why my natural lashes look shorter after extension has shed?
When you have beautiful long extensions for almost 4 weeks you get used to them. After they start falling out you feel the difference in length between the natural lashes and the extensions. Therefore, your lashes appearing shorter than your extensions. Another reason is that when the natural lashes shed the extensions on them fall out too. The remaining natural lashes (which are still baby lashes) are in different growth cycle. These baby lashes need time to grow and have the normal length.
How do I look after them?
I often heard from clients that they don't clean their lashes because they think they fall out quicker. This is so so wrong. It is really important to keep your eyelash extensions clean. Keeping them clean prevents form any infections and also helps in longevity of the lashes. You will get an Aftercare Instructions Card from your lash artist right after the treatment. Make sure to follow that in order to keep your lashes clean and hygienic.
