What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are a cosmetic application used to enhance the length, curl, fullness, and thickness of natural eyelashes.
Wink & Arch lash studio carefully and precisely applies each extension to each individual natural eyelash one by one. Different looks can be achieved using various curls, lengths and styles.
Eyelash extensions are a perfect option for everyday wear or for a special occasion.
How long will my eyelash extensions last?
When applied correctly, eyelash extensions will last the length of the growth cycle of your natural eyelashes
(which is typically 60-90 days).
This will vary from person to person depending on your lifestyle and how well you maintain your extensions.
To maintain a consistently full look, eyelash extension refills are recommended every 2-4 weeks.
Do eyelash extensions damage my natural lashes?
When applied correctly, eyelash extensions will not damage your natural lash. A certified lash technician will apply one extension per one natural eyelash, and ensure that the appropriate weight and length is considered for the integrity of your natural lashes. The technician will also ensure that the lashes have been properly isolated to prevent premature lash shedding.
Can I get my eyelash extensions wet?
After your appointment, we recommend keeping your eyelashes dry for 24 hours to ensure the adhesive sets and your eyelash extensions bond completely. Avoid swimming, saunas, steam rooms, hot yoga or any excessive sweating directly after getting your lashes done. This being said, you can still shower, wash your face, etc - just be more mindful and avoid your eyes from getting wet as best as you can.
Are Eyelash extensions removable?
Yes, this should be done by a certified eyelash technician. Do not attempt to remove the extensions on your own as it will most likely cause damage to your natural lashes. We use an eyelash extension gel remover that is placed on your lashes and then gently brushed off. This process is quick, safe and efficient and will not ruin the natural lashes.
How do I prepare for my appointment?
Show up to your appointment bare-faced and with a face mask on. No makeup around your eye area, no curling your lashes, no mascara. Try to refrain from applying oily skincare, and eye cream. If you need to work out, go to the gym and take a shower in advance.
How long does the appointment take?
Your first appointment & full set appointments take approximately 2 hours with Wink & Arch. Refills take 1 hour. Refills at the majority of lash studios require 40% of lash extensions remaining for it to be considered a refill, otherwise, it will be a full set. At Wink & Arch, we've come up with a new way to do refills! Refills get you a 1-hour appointment regardless of how many lash extensions you have remaining. This means that it is up to the client to determine if they think they have enough lashes left for 1 hour to be enough - or if they'll need a full set. If at the appointment, the lash tech believes it will take longer than an hour, the client will be informed and arrangements will be made to have a full set appointment.
