LASH EXTENSION CLIENTS:
What are semi-permanent eyelash extensions?
High quality eyelash extensions are made of high quality fibers such as silk or cruelty-free natural animal fur/hairs such as Siberian mink or sable. Eyelash extensions are applied to each mature natural lash with a medical grade adhesive specially formulated for the art of applying eyelash extensions. Our lash extensions are NOT cluster, flare or strip lashes.
How long do lash extensions last? How often are touch-ups/lash fills required?
Lash extension retention depends on your daily activities, natural lash condition, natural lash growth cycle, aftercare maintenance, diet, stress, hormones and your overall health. As your natural lashes grow out and shed, your lash extensions will grow out and shed with them. This is why lash touch-ups/lash fills are required every 2-3 weeks to maintain your lash extensions. After 3 weeks, most of your natural lashes will grow far away from the lash line and will require removal & replacement. This is the reason why most lash professionals charge the cost of a new full set of lash extensions at 4+ weeks after initial lash application or last lash fill.
Do you offer various lash extension options?
Yes, BEAUTIFY BY SHY uses the highest quality lash extension products. We custom design your lash extensions to give you the lashes of your dreams! We use various types of lash extensions, lengths, diameters and curls! We offer classic single strand, hybrid/blended, volume and mega volume lash extension options. More information regarding each of these options can be found under the "Book Now" tab.
How long does it take to apply the lashes?
Full set lash extension appointments take approximately 1.5-2.5 hours.
How are the lashes removed?
Lash professionals use a professional lash extension remover that is specifically formulated for the safe removal of eyelash extensions. Please do NOT attempt lash removal yourself.
Can I still wear makeup?
Yes! Many of our guests continue to wear the makeup they have always used. Many guests choose not to wear any makeup at all after having lash extensions applied. Mascara is not necessary and is not recommended. There is no proper way to clean mascara off lash extensions once applied and mascara residue interferes with proper bonding during lash fills. Use oil-free makeup remover wipes to remove makeup around the eyes. Lotion & oil based facial cleansers and products promote the breakdown of the lash adhesive, so use these products sparingly around the eyes.
Will lash extensions damage my natural lashes?
When lash extensions are applied professionally and cared for properly by the client, the lash extensions are generally non-damaging to the natural lash. As stated previously, when your natural eyelashes shed, the lash extension will shed with it.
