Do Extension Make Your Natural Lashes Fall Out?
Absolutely not! I like to say if you don't have them I can't lash them.Truthfully, extensions do not make you lose your natural lashes they are applied individually to each lash in a sanitary non damaging way. This is part of the reason why each lash set is custom to you.
How Does Lash Styling Work?
Every set is custom to you meaning the lengths, diameter, and curl of the lashes are all custom to your lash goals and what is healthy for your natural lashes. Lash styles are the different styles used to complete a full set for example rounding lash style where the longest lengths are in the center of the eye or cat eye style where the length gradually get longer making the longest lengths at the out corner of the eye. Style all depends on what you like and what is most ideal for your eye shape. Any style can be applied to any full set option.
When Should I Get A Fill In and How Do I Care For My Lashes?
A fill in appointment should be done every 2-3 weeks, with proper care extension fill ins can be booked up to 23 days with proper care and 50% of lashes remaining. If you are beyond 23 days since your last eyelash appointment you appointment will automatically be upgraded to full set regardless of retention.
Care for your lashes by brushing with a lash wand daily and cleansing them daily with the Lashed By Shay Foam Cleanser. Aftercare kit is available for purchase it includes our foam cleanser, our reusable gentle cleansing brush, and on the go lash wand. After your service is complete you will receive an aftercare email within 24hrs with detailed instruction on Does and Don't for your lashes.
Every lash set is custom to you and no two sets are the same. Ideally you should understand that no one can have same exact set or have two sets look exactly the same , as each feature is different ei. eye shape, state of your natural lashes, length of natural lashes,and etc.
How should I prepare for a facial appointment?
Start with avoid any fillers, botox, chemical or laser treatments 7-14 days before any facial . If you are looking to book an advance treatment like Dermaplaning or Microdermabrasion please discontinue any AHA at least 5-7 days before, as they may be a contraindication for the appointment. Please also make note of any products you are using on the daily basis as well as your weekly skincare routine. If you are a first time clients or are trying a new treatment you may arrive 10 mins early to your appointment to complete and review any consent or consult forms.
Is it required to purchase product after an appointment?
It is not required to purchase any product, however it highly recommended to purchase a routine as we offer professional grade effective products. Any product recommendations are based on your skin types, condition and goals. On average client spend about $50-$150 on product at initial appointment.
Should I expect anything after a facial?
This is on a client by client bases, it would also depend on the type of facial a client received and what conditions they are looking to address. After a chemical peel, most client should expect sensitivity, dryness, and peeling. After Dermaplaning, clients can expect smoother skin and better makeup application. We a thoroughly discuss any expectation during and after any facial so client may have time to ask any questions.
