Frequently Asked Questions
We know that doing a new treatment is like entering into a totally different world hence we’ve prepared for you a list of questions and answers that you may have when considering an eyelash extension application. We hope that the questions below will make your decision easier.
What semi-permanent lashes do London Lash Studios use?
Some salons charge much less for eyelash extensions. Why?
Low price can mean:
- Low cost, poor quality products are being used;
- Lash artist doesn’t spend enough time with the client and puts less lashes on your eyes;
- Has recently qualified and doesn’t have enough work experience.
- Beautician offers damaging cluster lashes or does not isolate natural lashes
How long does the application take?
Eyelash extensions is a relaxing process, taking an average of 2hours – 3hours for a full set. Extension refills/infill are 60-75 minutes.
How long do they last?
Eyelash extensions last an average of 3-4 weeks, as a result of proper aftercare routine. To have your eyelash extensions always looking their best, fills are recommended 2-3 weeks from the initial application.
How do I look after my lash extensions?
Semi-permanent eyelash extensions are wonderful because they are completely low-maintenance. First of all, you cannot get the eyelash extensions wet for 24 hours after they are applied. Also, you cannot use any oil based makeup removers or products on the lashes or around the eyes. What’s more, the best care for these lashes is to just keep the eye area clean, which is why they are so great – you will revel in the time it saves you in the morning when you pop out of bed looking bright-eyed as though your mascara and eye makeup is already done!
Can I continue with my sports routine with eyelash extensions?
YES! After 24 hours you can go swimming with your extensions, work out, still enjoy your steam rooms, and normal everyday activity because the extension becomes waterproof!
Does the application hurt?
NO! The application is a very relaxing process. Almost all our clients fall asleep during the treatment!
What products do you use?
We carry the product line London Lash Professional. Its our own brand which was specially formulated to provide us with the longest lasting adhesive letting you enjoy your full set of extensions for up to six weeks and the best quality lashes.
Do you use sensitive glue?
All glues used for eyelash extension contain the same ingredient, which is cyanoacrylate. Sensitive glues also contain this ingredient, they just produce lower fumes, hence are not as strong as the standard glue. Unfortunately, the retention may also be affected that’s why we do not use any kind of sensitive glue in our salon.
I had the eyelash extension applied before but I had an allergic reaction. Can I still have them done?
Unfortunately, if you already had an allergic reaction, it is more likely that you will have it again. Most of the clients that had an allergic reaction in the past, experience discomfort and itchiness during next treatments. Please remember that an allergic reaction is something you can develop at any point while having your lashes done.
Are there different lengths of eyelash extensions?
Yes, we have a variety of eyelash extensions lengths (4mm to 14mm), thicknesses (0.03mm, 0.04mm, 0.05mm, 0.06mm, 0.07mm, 0.1mm, 0.12mm, 0.15mm) and curls (B, C, CC, D, L) hence we customise a look that works perfect for you!
Do eyelash extensions come in different colours?
Yes! And we offer medium and dark brown lashes for softer looks. Additionally, we offer bright colours in shades of pink, blue, turquiose, red, yellow, green and purple for a touch of fun in lashes.
Do you offer eyelash extensions for men?
