How should I prepare for my visit to House of Lashes?
Before you arrive, please make sure your hair is washed. House of Lashes adhesive requires 24 hours to set and you will not be able to wet your hair in the shower during that time. Dress comfortably for your appointment. We recommend that you do not wear eye makeup.
How long will my appointment last?
A full set of eyelash extensions takes 90-120 minutes to apply. Touch-ups may require less time.
Is it painful?
The process is completely painless. In fact, most clients find it very relaxing and some have been known to fall asleep while their lashes are applied.
How many lashes are in a full set?
Unlike store-bought false lashes, eyelash extensions are applied to each individual natural lash. A full set can consist of 180 eyelashes or more, depending on the material used and the desired look. Your House of Lashes technician will determine the correct number of lashes based on your face shape, eye shape and position, and brow arch, creating a completely custom design.
How should I care for my lash extensions?
Proper lash care is the best way to make sure your House of Lashes extensions stay looking as beautiful as they did when they were first applied.
For the first 24 hours:
- Do not make the lashes wet, and wash around your eyes for the first 48 hours
- No gym, sauna or swimming pool
- Avoid spray tanning
After that, observe these tips for best results:
- Be gentle with your eyelashes; try not to rub excessively or sleep on them
- Use oil-free makeup and makeup removers
- Do not use cotton pads or balls
- Wipe your lashes gently with a tissue rather than a towel
- Be careful changing clothes that go over your head
- Do not use mechanical curlers or waterproof mascara
- NEVER attempt to add or remove eyelash extensions by yourself
How often should I schedule a relash appointment?
To maintain your custom House of Lashes look, we recommend relash appointments every 2-3 weeks. This allows us to replace any lashes that have shed as part of their natural growth cycle. Relash appointments are generally quicker and cost much less than a full set of extensions.
Can I wear mascara with my eyelash extensions?
Mascara will not be necessary. However, if you want a mascara look, APPLY MASCARA ON THE TIPS ONLY. DO NOT APPLY NEAR THE BASE OF THE LASH. Application near the base can physically break the bond between the lash and the natural lash and may shorten the life of lashes, especially during the mascara removal process.
