What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions in Melbourne are individual, long-lasting lashes. Silk eyelashes are applied directly onto your natural lashes using a low fume glue which bonds in 3 seconds. This gives natural lashes the appearance of being thicker and longer. Every eye is different and can have anywhere from 80-120 natural lashes on it.
What can you expect during the procedure?
You will be pampered and relaxed for 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the desired lash look. Touch-ups take less time; approximately 30-60 minutes. Your natural lashes will need to be completely free of all make-up and oil based products. Your eyes will be closed and protected throughout the procedure. Most clients fall asleep as we play gentle calming music to help you unwind in a private lash suite.
How long will my eyelash extensions last?
When applied properly and with proper care, your eyelash extensions will adhere for the entire cycle of hair growth, approximately 3-6 weeks depending on the individual. Natural eyelashes are shed on a regular basis. This may result in multiple extension loss on any given day (roughly 2 lashes per eye per day). When the natural lash is shed the synthetic lash will fall with it alternatively the glue can breakdown and the silk lash will fall off. Touch-up applications will be necessary every 2-4 weeks to maintain a full lash line.
What are Hybrid Lashes?
Hybrid lashes are a mix of classic lashes (1:1 lash) and volume lashes (3-10 lashes in a fan: 1 natural lash). Each volume fan is handmade by your lash artist during your appointment and placed on a single natural lash. Each fan varies in density according to each of your natural lashes.
