Custom tailored lash extensions.
Eyelash extensions are individual false lashes expertly attached to each eyelash with a special medical grade adhesive. This means it is one false lash, attached to one natural lash. They are expertly applied to the eyelash itself and are never in direct contact with your skin. They range in length, thickness and curl shape.
- Be gentle with your lashes. No touching, rubbing, water, sweat, or steam for 24 hours.
- Avoid running water directly on your lashes.
- Avoid oily products (including some sunscreen products) on or near your lashes
- If you insist on mascara, only use water based mascara and apply it middle to tip avoiding root area.
- Use water based eye makeup remover only!
- Do not perm or curl your lashes.
- Avoid sleeping on your new eyelashes.
- Do not pull on your lashes (this may cause your natural lashes to come out prematurely) – If you want them removed, please come back. A special removal agent is used that will protect your natural lashes.
- Maintain extensions with regular touch up appointments.
Definitely be back!
"Finally!! I found someone who I can trust to do my eyelash extensions *exactly* how I like them. I couldn't be happier with how they came out. They are super full and high-quality and they look very natural- I've never received so many compliments on my eyes :) Natalie was really sweet and fun to talk to which made the whole process enjoyable. I've had my lashes done several times at a few different places but have never been this happy with my experience. I'll definitely be back!"
Natalie did such an amazing job on my lashes
"Natalie did such amazing job on my lashes, they were full, even, beautiful and still looked natural. The best part for me was not putting on mascara everyday, in fact I was so happy with the results I wore less makeup all together just wasn't needed. I only wish they would last forever, but well worth the time I had them and they lasted a long time too, I will be going back for a new set soon and I recommend you do the same! She totally made me comfortable during the process, very sweet and thorough, I highly recommend Ms. Natalie De Los Santos."
Amazing lashes exactly the style I like them.
“Natalie did SUCH an amazing job on my lashes! She really listened to me, and then she delivered!! My lashes look dramatic but totally natural, exactly like what I asked for. She's friendly and made me feel very comfortable, and she's super reasonably priced, especially for being a Beverly Hills stylist. If you're looking to get really great eyelash extensions without breaking the bank... This girl has got you!”
Frequently Asked Questions
CAN YOU SHOWER OR SWIM RIGHT AWAY? ARE THERE PRODUCTS YOU SHOULD ABSOLUTELY AVOID?
Keep water away from your lashes for the first 12 to 24 hours after application or touch-ups. Water can weaken the adhesive before it is set and cause lashes to fall off. The after-care varies depending on the glue used. For instance, with glue for sensitive eyes, oil-based products or makeup removers around the eye area are not recommended. Using water-proof mascara on the extensions is not recommended for any type of glue, as it is hard to remove and can actually pull off the lashes prematurely when trying to take it off.
IS IT OKAY TO ALSO WEAR MASCARA?
If you are planning to wear mascara in addition to the extensions, only use it on the tips of the extensions and with a very light hand. This will be enough to give your eyes that "pop" along with the extensions. Using mascara at the base of the extensions will get very clumpy and risk of damage is also a factor to keep in mind.
WILL YOUR NATURAL LASHES GET HARMED OR DAMAGED?
The biggest myth is that lash extensions ruin your own lashes. They do not. If applied correctly and properly, they are safe and do not ruin the health of your natural lashes. Be sure not to rub your eyes or tug or pull on the extensions because this can cause lash loss and even damage to your natural lashes. If lashes are applied properly and to each individual lash, they won’t fall out.
The application of eyelash extensions is a very detail process, and should certainly only be done by a trained lash stylist. But training is not enough. Patience, attention to detail, and strong work ethics are also required. Nearly all "lash disasters" we have repaired come from trained, even certified, lash stylist. Just because someone has learned to do this skill, does not mean they have the qualities it takes to do it right.
HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MY NEW LASH EXTENSIONS?
- do not get lashes wet for 2-4 hours after application
- avoid hot steam or sauna
- do not rub your eyes
- do not perm your lashes
- do not use a mechanical eyelash curler
- do not pull on your lashes (this may cause your natural lashes to come out prematurely)
What are the most common types of lash extensions?
There are three types of lash extensions: synthetic, silk and mink. Size availability ranges from 6mm to 17mm. Once selected, the lashes are applied one at a time using a specially formulated, semi-permanent glue that will not irritate the eye nor damage the natural lash.
How long does it take to apply lash extensions?
Applying a full set of lashes can take up to two hours, and maintained year-round with touch-ups recommended every two to three weeks. A half set of lashes are an economical alternative to achieve a similarly dramatic effect, applied as filler to thicken natural lashes, or applied outward from the eye for a specialized look.
Everyone has different lashes, and depending on the condition of your own natural lashes, lash experts can only go a certain length or thickness. (This is to ensure that your own lashes remain healthy.) For example, if your natural lashes are on the shorter, thinner side, you won't be able to get a crazy, dramatic Kim Kardashian look, because it won't last. It's better to start out with a half set (50 to 60 percent of your top lashes) if you aren't sure or it's your first time. It’s easier to add more than to remove lashes!
How often do you need to get lash extensions redone?
Lash extensions last through a full growth cycle of natural eyelashes, typically six to eight weeks. That said, because each person’s lash growth is somewhat variable (just hair growth), I suggest light lash maintenance every two to three weeks to maintain a full look.
Do lash extensions fall out over a certain period of time?
Since each lash extension is attached to a single eyelash, they will fall out naturally along with the natural growth cycle of each lash. We recommend a touch-up every three to four weeks.
When an inexperienced professional applies lashes, he or she often applies one synthetic lash to three to four natural lashes, causing clumps or the lash to break and fall out. In addition, your lashes might fall out if you pick at them or try to pull them out yourself, which is a big no-no. But if you avoid those two problems, your lashes should stay intact.
