Things to remember before your appointment:
On the day of your appointment, please ensure that you have removed all eye makeup with an oil-free eye makeup remover, or arrive 15 minutes early to do so.
We would rather spend your appointment time working on perfecting your lashes, than removing your makeup!
If you have had lash extensions elsewhere and they are clumpy, twisting or causing irritation, we will need to remove them, and re-apply a new set. If in doubt, please contact us to discuss.
Looking fabulous can take time! Quality over quantity is very important.
Please allow 1.5 - 2.5 hours for your full set to be completed.
45 mins-1.5 hours for re-fills.
Will Eyelash Extensions damage my eyelashes?
Eyelash Extensions can be damaging if incorrectly applied; it is essential to use a professionally trained and qualified therapist.
Eyelash Extensions must be applied with precision and great care. There is a lot to applying extensions that can only be learnt with proper training and a lot of experience. The eyelashes should never be stuck and clumped together after the application as this is damaging to the eyelashes preventing natural growth and resulting in their premature shedding.
What Eyelash products/adhesive do you use?
We have been fully trained in Eyelash Extensions therefore we're not tied up to any particular brand. However, we always carefully choose professional products that have the best reputation in the industry. At the moment, we are using Aquila Glue by Lash Joy.
Here at Ebony Belle Beauty we use high quality, top of the range professional silk eyelashes that resemble natural lash hair. The extensions are bonded to the natural lash using a high quality strong adhesive specially formulated for eyelash extensions, is medical grade and safe for use and is also low fume and odor.
How long will my Eyelash Extensions last?
If properly cared for, your Eyelash Extensions should last until your natural eyelashes shed with the false one attached; due to the natural hair growth cycle, that will be between 4-8 weeks. However, re-fill appointments are normally necessary every 2-4 weeks depending. Your lifestyle, skin characteristics and after care you provide play the most important role in the durability of the eyelash extensions.
If you take part in active exercise, swimming, or use sauna or any other heat services the lashes may not be as durable. If your skin is naturally oily or if you use oil based skin care, oily make-up, mascara or eye drops this will affect the bond of the adhesive resulting in de-bonding and shedding of the false eyelash.
How long does it take for an Re-Fill procedure?
It can take 45 mins-1.5 Hrs. for a re-fill procedure.
You must have at least 50% of your lashes remaining to be classed as a 2-3 week re-fill.
Can I use mascara or other make-up products with my Eyelash Extensions?
No regular mascara should be used on the Eyelash Extensions. If you do use mascara or other make-up (powder, foundation, eyeliner, etc), please make sure to properly clean and cleanse the eyelashes when removing.
Eyelash Shampoo is available for purchase from Ebony Belle Beauty for $15.
