Lash Extensions FAQs
What Are Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash Extensions are individual strands of synthetic fibers made to replicate a natural eyelash. When applied, eyelash extensions lengthen and thicken your own natural eyelashes. The single strands are applied to each individual eyelash, one by one. With proper application, lash extensions look and feel completely natural.
How long will a set of Eyelash Extensions last?
When applied by one of our artists, eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your own eyelashes. Depending on your activity and day-to-day routine, refills should only be required every 2 to 4 weeks.
Are Lash Extensions safe?
Lash Galore only uses professional grade adhesive which never comes in contact with your skin. Synthetic eyelashes adhere about 1mm away from your skin.
Can I apply mascara to Eyelash Extensions?
Our eyelash extensions are designed to give your natural lashes an improved look of fullness so mascara is not needed.
Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing eyelash extensions?
We do ask you to minimize the chance of wetting the extensions for the first 48 hours of wear. After that 48-hour period, the adhesive used to apply your eyelash extensions is secure enough to allow you to get right back to your routine. However, keeping away from extensive contact with steam such as in saunas or certain facials is not recommended since it can begin to loosen the bond.
How soon can I wash my face after the extensions are applied?
The suggested time frame is 24-48 hours. For a guest with sensitivities, it is suggested to wash within the first 12 hours of application.
How do I take care of my new eyelash extensions?
- Avoid getting lashes wet for the first 24-48 hours
- Avoid hot steam or sauna
- Do not perm eyelashes or manually curl.
- Brush with a clean mascara wand daily.
- TIP: Sometimes mornings are a mess! Try washing your lashes with water in the morning and gently brushing the top side of the extensions with a finger placed beneath. If too much tugging is noticed, a quick stop at your local studio may be necessary to help separate these extensions.
Is the product FDA approved? Is it safe?
Currently, the FDA is not regulating eyelash extensions because the eyelash extensions are applied to the natural eyelash hairs and do not touch the skin. The application process is pain-free. Some clients consider the process relaxing and even sleep through the appointment.
How long will it take to apply eyelash extensions and how is it done?
The application process for lash extensions normally takes about 90-120 minutes for a full set of lashes and 45-60 minutes for a refill. You will lay comfortably on a massage table with your eyes closed while relaxing ambient music is played in the background. During application, your lower lashes will be covered and the extensions will be applied only to your upper lashes one at a time.
How do I choose the look I want?
Your technician will consult with you to understand what type of style you are interested in and what look will work best with your natural lashes. The overall look of the lashes can range from very natural to very voluminous! Refer to our Service Menu for more info!
Do I have to do anything to prepare for the service?
To remove any eye makeup, use an oil-free makeup remover to cleanse your lashes prior to the appointment as well to remove any leftover mascara. Lashes should not be permed or manually curled at the time of appointment.
What happens if I choose to have my eyelash extensions removed?
We do offer a service to have the extensions removed involving a short thirty-minute appointment in which we apply a gel remover. The gel remover is applied on top of the extensions without touching the skin and allowed to sit for 10 minutes. Once the adhesive is dissolved the extensions are gently wiped away with lint free applicators exposing the natural lashes.
seriously hands down the best glue for advanced artists!!! Retention is bomb! You need it
Love these. Haven’t found another lash line that was as easy to fan as these. The only thing is the curl isnt as accurate
I really liked these lashes! They were dark but still looked natural! My only problem is that I bought the D curls and they look more like c's! I noticed theres a disclaimer that the newer batches will have the more accurate curls so I will most def be ordering more!
Stumbled upon this glue through another lash artist-great on sensitive client eyes too! Retention is amazing.... this glue by far the best I've worked with out there!
Love this glue be sure to keep it stored between 65-75 degrees! I’ve had issues with glues when they’re stored in cool areas, they will become goopy and VERY hard to work with. I’m super careful about where I store this glue so it doesn’t spoil.
I switched glues during the summer because my humidity was so high and I didn’t have a dehumidifier at the time. I purchased this glue and the sensitive and I’m so happy! Glues I’ve used before would wick up the lashes and on to my tweezers. Lash Galore adhesive hasn’t given me any problems and the retention on my clients is great! Makes lashing much faster and easier!
This lash glue is so bomb!! The retention is really nice as well. I tested it first on my best friend to see if the hype was really, and it is! It’s been 2 weeks so far and they still look pretty fresh! This is a nice quality product :) I would most definitely repurchase again.
Love how the way it feels! My clients are in love with it as well and can't stop looking at themselves. Product is a A++++ I will be ordering again. Thank you @Lashgaloresf!!!
This is a great brand! I have tried quite a few sensitive adhesives and have had a lot of luck with this adhesive and one of my clients that reacted to every other adhesive I tried. Retention is amazing too!
I finally used these lashes on a client last night and they are absolutely beautiful and my client loved the look. These lashes unlike my the ones I was previously using look like lashes with mascara because they a really nice dark black. where as my other ones I was using weren't quit as dark looking more like a natural lash. Will definitely be ordering more !
Very impressed with this glue. I used for volume and individual lash extensions. Great retention, fast dry time and very low fumes. I have incredibly sensitive eyes and even on my lashes it didn't cause my eyes to redden or tear up. Definitely remember to shake well!
Love these! They are super soft and easy to work with. They are not too shiny and not too matte, but they look beautiful once applied. My clients love them
As a professional Lash Artist this adhesive is great. Very low fumes, excellent for you and your client. Good retention. My client came back for her fill after 4 weeks and she had most of her lashes. Im very happy with this adhesive I highly recommend it
My new favorite glue! Dries fast so you can keep moving. A little goes a long way. Have not done a fill yet so not sure about retention yet but so far so good, no client complaints.
