Eyelash Extensions are a popular new service that lengthens and thickens your natural eyelashes. Each synthetic lash is applied one by one to your own eyelashes creating a natural, beautiful, luscious look.
It is necessary to get touch-ups every 2-5 weeks to add lashes to the new growth as a person`s natural eyelashes naturally shed every 60 to 120 days and a new lash grows in. Some clients have had their extensions on for years with regular visits. Frequency of appointments is dependent upon your own lash growth and proper care.
Your initial appointment will take approximately 2 hours depending on the look you want to achieve and how many natural lashes you have. Refill appointments take 60 min. You will be reclining in our overstuffed chairs, relaxing as we do all of the work for you. Lash naps are the best naps!
Whether you are looking for an everyday look, the glamorous look, lashes for your wedding day or prom, or just a weekend away – lash extensions will transform your look!
Are Eyelash Extensions for me?
A large segment of the female population, from celebrities to business woman and even domestic engineers, are wearing eyelash extensions. Most likely someone you know has them and you didn’t even know it (you probably thought they were just blessed with amazing lashes).
Longer, thicker, fuller lashes!
Thick and beautifully curled, these lashes look as real as if you were born to give butterfly kisses.
Eyes reveal a great deal about your age. Eyelash extensions make your eyes appear less tired and as if they were lifted…making you look and feel years younger! And, believe us, you are never too old to feel beautiful.
Now you have one less thing to do in the morning. You will look your best and feel confident in world a where eye contact is so important.
At Bare Wax and Spa, we use faux-mink lash extensions. Faux-mink lashes, which are man-made fibers, designed to imitate real mink fur. They are very fine, soft and silky, just like real fur. However, they have been improved, in that if you wet them, they won`t lose their curl. Faux-mink lashes have become very popular because they are so light and fine, they feel exactly like your own lashes. They are (with proper care) very long lasting, and are great if your own lashes are fine and weak.
We also use only medical grade adhesives that are perfectly safe and low in fumes. They are made specifically for use around the delicate eye tissues and membranes. We do NOT use latex based glues or weave glues for our extensions (which can be very dangerous).
*It is perfectly fine to use lash growth serums with our lashes (as long as they don’t contain any oils, most of which do not).
Lash Fill Policy
**PLEASE DO NOT ARRIVE WITH ANY EYE MAKEUP ON **
The day of your fill, please wash your lashes with warm water and baby shampoo (we recommend Babo Botanicals Shampoo which can be purchased online). Make sure you get the roots squeaky clean. This will ensure the best possible bond when we apply your lashes and they will last longer.
In order for your appointment to be considered a “fill” you have to have at least 1/3 of the original set left. The average person loses 1-4 lashes a day with the life cycle of a single lash lasting 90-120 days. The new time for Classic Lash Fills is 2 weeks, Volume Lash Fills is 3 weeks As long as you get your lashes touched up within your time frame, it is a fill guaranteed. If you go over your fill time, it is possible you will have to get a new full set (unless you have 1/3 of your original set left).
Please keep in mind, if you didn’t show up for your appointment without letting us know, you will have to pay for the next appointment in full in order to reschedule.
**Lashes are a luxury and special care is required to maintain full, gorgeous lashes**
- Do not pick or pull on your lashes.
- Avoid any thing oily because it degrades the glue. This includes but is not limited to makeup, eye creams, eye serums, lotions, etc.
- Gently cleanse your lashes each night. We recommend Borboleta Beauty’s specially-formulated Lash Bath. This gentle product removes makeup build up, dirt, and oils from your lash extensions without risking your retention.
- Brush lashes daily. This encourages lashes to shed properly and also keeps them straight and luxurious.
- Do not sleep on your face. Whichever side you sleep on will experience more lash loss.
- We recommend purchasing a silk pillowcase as it will be gentler on your lashes as we as your skin and helpful with wrinkles. Dust mites don’t like silk either. Double bonus!
