WHAT ARE NOVALASH LASH EXTENSIONS?
NovaLash Lash Extensions are an elegant way to extend the length and thickness of natural eyelashes, and are a practical, convenient and beautiful alternative to the daily use of mascara. Unlike decades-old, traditional false lashes, lash extensions are the first innovation in lash lengthening that can be worn daily, without nightly removal. Because each tapered, synthetic lash is bonded to a single natural lash, the final result is of effortless glamour and difficult to detect even close up.
HOW LONG DO THEY REALLY LAST?
When properly applied, touch-ups are recommended after the initial full set application to refill any lashes that have cycled out. To maintain the full, thick appearance of a new set of lashes a visit to your beauty/lash professional is recommended every 2-4 weeks based on your own natural lash growth cycle and you activity and day-to-day routine.
CAN LASH EXTENSIONS HARM NATURAL LASHES?
When applied properly from a professional, lash extensions will not harm natural lashes. The NovaLash application technique allows natural lashes to grow and thrive with extensions. This technique requires several different “separation” steps during the application process so each extension is adhered to a single natural lash in order to prevent interruption of the lash growth cycle.
CAN MASCARA BE USED WITH LASH EXTENSIONS?
Mascara is typically not needed with lash extensions. Mascara should only be used when a touch-up is drawing near. Water-soluble mascara can be worn; however constant use of mascara may shorten the lifespan of lashes. Waterproof mascara is NOT RECOMMENDED for use, as it will dissolve the bond with the lashes. NovaLash glycol and carbonate free mascara is specifically formulated for use on extensions without interfering with the adhesive.
ONCE APPLIED, WHAT IS THE PROPER WAY TO CARE FOR LASHES?
Clean the lashes with a gentle oil free cleanser (preferably baby shampoo). It’s important to clean off the day to day build-up of oil and dust or makeup. Using a lash wand to comb the lashes free of tangles is also recommended. Do not do anything to alter the curl of your lashes (perm, mechanical curler, etc). Avoid rubbing your eyes excessively.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO APPLY EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
For your initial first visit, a full set normal takes 2-2.5 hours. Fill in appointments vary for 35-90 minutes depending on how much time you have waited between fills and lash extension loss.
CAN EYELASH EXTENSIONS BE REMOVED?
Yes, they can easily be removed by your lash artist. PLEASE do not attempt to remove any lashes on your own as you may damage your natural lashes this way.
WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO PREPARE FOR MY FULL SET / FILL IN APPOINTMENT?
Lashes should be clean and free from any dust, oil or makeup build up so remove any eye makeup with mild cleansers. Oily dirty lashes cause the lash extensions not to bond to the natural lash. Lashes should not be curled as well.
CAN I STILL GET EYELASH EXTENSIONS IF I WEAR CONTACTS OR GLASSES?
Yes! Since the lash extensions do not touch your skin they will not interfere with your contacts or normal daily activities.
