Q. Are they comfortable to wear?
A. Correctly applied set of lashes should feel comfortable and lightweight. You will not know you have them on. The treatment should be pain-free and relaxing.
Q. I have an event coming up and would like to get lashes. When would you recommend coming in for a full set?
A: Receiving lash extensions as soon as possible to ensure no allergic reaction is highly recommended. Recovery time varies from person to person. A small percentage of people have a negative reaction, however, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Q: What’s the difference between Classic vs Volume Lashes?
A: Classic is one extension to one natural lash whereas Volume is 2+ lash extensions to one natural lash. Consultation regarding classic versus volume, as well as length and diameter is necessary to ensure a good match to your natural lashes.
Q: On average, how long do they last?
A: To maintain the full look, relash appointments are typically scheduled every 2-3 weeks. They can last as long as 4-6 weeks depending on your personal care and natural lash shedding cycle. Results vary from person to person. The retention of lashes is greatly dependent upon each person’s discipline of caring for their lashes.
Q: How much for a “relash aka refills”?
A: Classic starts at $75 every two weeks. Volume starts at $95 every two weeks. Prices vary on how many lashes are placed. Packages are available as well as referral programs that help with the costs.

VOLUME LASH FAQ
Q: Is this method safe/healthy for my natural lashes?
A: Yes. The eyelash extensions used for the volume technique are much thinner in diameter. The Lash Specialist will calculate how many small diameter lashes your own natural lashes can safely hold.
Q: Does this process cost more?
A: Yes. This process takes longer to apply because of the doubling, tripling, etc the amount of lash extensions. This is a very meticulous process when done correctly. The great thing is clients will be able to extend their refills from 2-3 weeks with Classic extensions to that of 3-4 weeks with Volume extensions. A full Volume set can take anywhere from 2.5 to 3.5 hours, depending on the amount of volume added. Refills take approximately 15min to 1.5 hours longer than a classic refill depending on what look the client would like to achieve.
Q: Am I a candidate for Volume?
A: Most people will be able to get at least 2D volume effect (double the amount of lashes) while some with stronger lashes will be able to get up to 5/6D. Consult with the Lash Specialist.
Q: Can I try the Volume Lashes with my current eyelash extensions?
A: Yes. Even though it is better to start off fresh with a new set, your lash stylist can refill you with the volume technique.
