What are Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash extensions are the application of synthetic or real mink lashes to your natural lash. Eyelash extensions add length, curl, and volume to your natural lashes and can be customized to enhance and draw attention to your eyes. Extensions come in a variety of thicknesses, lengths and colors (although black is most common to give the mascara look).

How long do lash extensions last?

With proper at home care, the adhesive will last anywhere from 6-8 weeks. However, you do lose 3-7 natural lashes everyday so after an average of 3 weeks, most clients will want to come in for a "touch up" to keep their lashes looking full. There are many factors that could affect the retention of your extensions including improper home care, not cleaning the lash line, oily eyelids, the use of oil based products on or around the eyeline, medications, allergies, thyroid or hormonal issues, lifestyle, seasonal changes, a natural heavy lash shed, and so much more. If you do run into an issue with your retention, please contact us so we can troubleshoot and discuss next steps.

Do eyelash extensions damage your natural lashes?

A properly trained and certified lash artist knows how to select and apply an appropriate lash extension based on the strength and length of your natural lashes. Your lash artist's first priority should be to preserve your natural lash and eye health. Your eyelash extension should never hurt or cause your natural lash to break off. It is recommended to never pull or tug your eyelash extensions so as to not damage your natural lashes. Your lash extensions will shed with your natural lash cycle. 

Can I wear makeup and mascara?

The eyelash extensions and the adhesive are both deep black to give the appearance of mascara and often times eyeliner, so makeup is not really necessary. If you do decide to wear makeup/mascara, avoid oil based and waterproof products as those will break down the adhesive faster. The most important bond of the eyelash extension and the natural lash is at the base so mascara may be worn on the tips of the extensions which can allow you to go an extra few days before your touch up and straighten any "lazy lashes".

Had a bad experience somewhere else?

At Ghazal Beauty By Coco we are properly trained and hold several professional Certifications for eyelash extensions. Our primary focus and specialty is ensuring your natural lash health is protected throughout the duration of wearing eyelash extensions. If at any point your lash artist observes damage being done to your natural lashes or it is assumed that the extensions are too heavy for your natural lash, adjustments in the length and/or weight of your extensions will be made and discussed with you to ensure your natural lash health is protected! If ever you are concerned about the process or your natural lashes, we invite you to ask as many questions as necessary to feel comfortable and confident in your lash artist's ability to not only give you great lashes, but an amzaing experience that you can enjoy for years to come!
