Most Frequently Asked

  •  What is the difference between mink lashes and synthetic lash extensions?

- Synthetic lashes are usually thicker, more stiff, hurt the eyes after a few days, have a plasticky feel and look to them. Mink lashes are usually very light, soft, last longer, most natural look and healthiest weight for natural lashes.

  • Do lash extensions damage your natural lashes?

- No, but they can if the application of the extensions was by an incapable professional. Damage happens when the extensions are glued on more than one of your natural lashes, that makes your natural lashes come off, gives lots of discomfort to the eye and most of us end up pulling then out causing more damage. 

  • How long do lashes last?

- A quality set of eyelash extensions can last up to 6 weeks. With that being said, if you do not get any touch ups after the first session you're most likely going to have left about 30% of extensions. 

  • How should I take care of my lashes at home?

- After your lash session you must avoid any water, sweat or makeup on the lashes for 24-48 hours. After this period you should always clean your lashes really thoroughly after you wear any eye makeup. If you don't wear makeup, you still have to wash your lashes but not as often. Wash your eyes with baby shampoo or eyelash solution. AND BRUSH BRUSH BRUSH!

  • How often should I get a fill ?

- Fills are recommended to be done every 2-4 weeks depending on how fast your lashes are growing. 

  • How long does it take for a new set and a fill?

- New set of volume lashes takes about 2 hours with an experienced artist. Volume fills are about 1 hour.  New set of classic lashes takes about 1/1.5 hours. Classic fills are usually 40 min.

What is a Quality set?

Before setting a lash extension appointment, you need to make your research. The following things should be taken in consideration: artist, products he/she uses, different styles, amount of time the service takes, and the price of course. 

  • Artist: If you are going to a salon you need to ask to see prior work of each artist they have to have an idea the style of their work, weather you like it or not and who you want to go with. If you are going to an freelance artist, as well request to see their prior work. 
  • Products: there is different types of lash extensions that artist use, the most inexpensive lashes are the synthetics. They are usually thinker and and it’s very easy to see the difference because they look fake. These are also the fastest to com off because they are of firm(check). Silk lashes would be a better options if you are looking for quality. The look so much more natural, soft and light which is very important for volume sets. The best option is the mink lashes, they are the lightest, softest and the fluffiest thats why they are called mink lashes. They are the most expensive ones but even here you need to be careful because there is good mink and bad mink. Salons usually give you an option between faux mink and real mink. If you are going for volume, then mink should not even be under question mark. Even if you get the most volume, they will make the look to seen natural because of their texture. 
  • Styles & Time : Before going in, see which styles you like the most (cat eye, dolly, etc.). When you go in make sure to ask if the stile you decide on will fit your wow shape, because each person is different and same look will look different others. So in order to not open your eyes and not see what you were expecting, have the artist help you, it is their job. Each stile has different amounts of lashes which means more or less time to complete the set. Ask your artist to be prepare what to expect. 
  • Pricing : A quality set of lashes will never be less than $100, simply because of the products used. The best products for artists to use are much more expensive than you might think. Than doesn't mean there are no chap products, with which cheap work is done. A high quality mink volume set ranges $200-400 at salons and takes from 2-3 hours of precise work. A chapter job at a nail salon while they are upselling you during your manicure will cost you $70 and will be done in 45 min. It is simply impossible to do a volume set in that time UNLESS the lashes are placed on more than one lash and you get an allergic reaction since there is too much glue on your eyelids. 

How long do lash extensions last and when is it time for a fill?

Iana Cornescu

A high quality lash extension set should last you from 3-6 weeks depending on how good you follow the instruction of the aftercare. And I will add a special blog to explain what I mean by high quality lash set. 

When it comes to maintaining your lashes there are 2 ways to do it. You can either get a fill every 2/3weeks or you can get a new set every 4/5weeks.

If you go with every 2.3 weeks with LaLuxLash, you will get a lash bath to make sure that the fill is done on clean lashes. This also means that roughly 50% of your extensions should be present and only the ones that are too grown should be replaced. Every lash has it's own lash cycle and might grow faster than others so 2 weeks is usually the perfect time to have a perfect balance. Don't forget when yo get fills you don't let your lashes breath as much so this means you must take breaks 2-3 times a year for 3-4 weeks. I know!!! You can't even imagine looking in the mirror with no lashes but you must do that so you can have healthy lashes that can afford holding up the extensions. 

The second option would be getting a new set every weeks and this option is for those who don't care as much about how the lashes look as they care about their health. This option is also for those people that take excellent care of their lashes. When you get a new set every time, it means that you let the lashes breath instead of gluing new lashes constantly. Again this option is for those that don't mind not having a perfect full look at all times. 

I found a good balance between these 2 options and I highly recommend getting about 5 fills andget a whole new set. This option gives you the hygiene, and gives me a chance to see the health of your bare natural lashes. It also gives you that little break before you get a new set again. 

Everyone is different and it's totally normal to go with either one so you decide whats good for your lashes...
