What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent extensions that are able to add more fullness and length to your natural lashes all the while being lightweight, comfortable and safe to wear.
What is the difference between Classic lashes and Russian Volume lashes?
Classic lashes is the original method where one extension is applied to one natural lash. This method is also known as 1:1 where usually a 0.05mm diameter lash extension is used. Classic lashes are perfect for the client who already has lots of natural lashes, but wants to add a little volume and more length.
Russian Volume (3D) is when multiple lashes are applied to one natural lash using super thin and lightweight extensions. If two extensions are applied to one natural lash it’s described as 2D, if three eyelash extensions are applied to one natural eyelash then it’s described as 3D and so on.
The lash extensions used in this method are significantly thinner. Volume lashes are lighter, fluffier and give the client a fuller look without weighing the natural lashes down. Volume lashes are perfect for clients who don't have a lot of lashes, have sparse lashes, bald spots or just want a more dramatic look without having to use a thicker lash.
How long will they last?
Bat Your Lash eyelash extensions last the life of the natural lash (average 5-6 weeks) However, they will need to be maintained with refills every 2-4 weeks.
What are our extensions made from?
Is it safe?
Yes, no extension or glue is ever attached to your skin. Extensions are only ever attached individually to your own natural lashes. Our technicians are highly trained and have many many years experience in their field. A few of our technicians are actually Lash educators and conduct student training.
Could I possibly have an allergic reaction to the adhesive?
It is possible, but quite uncommon to have a reaction. Here at Bat Your Lash we use sensitive glue. If you have any concerns about lash extensions or about having a reaction please contact us and we can discuss it with you prior to coming in.
How do they feel when wearing them?
So light you can't feel them.
Can I wear Mascara?
You won't need to! The main reason why clients love their extensions so much is that there is no need to mess around with mascara or panda eyes anymore. Mascara will start to break down the bond of the adhesive and you will lose your extensions much quicker.
Avoid rubbing your eyes and take care when dressing and removing clothes.
Avoid water and steam from saunas for the first 24 hours.
Do not use mascara on your eyelash extensions. It will start to break down the glue. The more you wear mascara, the less likely your eyelash extensions are going to last until the end of the lash growth cycle.
Use oil-free eye makeup remover and oil-free products around the eyes.
It is very important that you do not perm or tint lashes after extensions are applied.
We recommend getting refills every two to four weeks. At any given moment, each of your natural eyelashes is at a different stage of its life cycle. A refill is needed to replenish the lashes that have completed their life cycle.
