What are eyelash extensions?

The art of placing an extension on a natural lash. They are attached one-by-one to each individual natural lash -not to the skin- with a surgical grade adhesive. Custom lash extension application, such as classic or volume,  is a meticulous process that requires the skill and precision of a certified lash technician.

If you follow the proper aftercare instructions, they can last up to four weeks. Due to the natural eyelash shedding process, a few extensions may begin to drop after 1-2 weeks. This is entirely normal.
