Frequently Asked Questions
Eyelash Extensions are lightweight, synthetic eyelashes that come in a wide variety of lengths, thicknesses, curl styles, colours and materials eg silk, polyester, faux mink and 100% Siberian mink fur – they are expertly bonded individually on a ‘lash by lash’ basis to your own natural lashes giving you longer, thicker, more luscious looking lashes. Eyelash extensions are perfect for special occasions, everyday wear or for people want to forget about mascara they are so soft and flexible you won’t even know you are wearing them
Properly applied Eyelash Extensions will look and feel completely natural – they will be longer, more curly and definitely more full and luxurious than average natural lashes – in fact, they look so real that most people will think you were born with beautiful lashes. There are many designs and style to suit you personally, to give you your own unique look, whether it be natural or dramatic.
Lashes have growth cycles at 4-6 weeks, where you can lose about 20% of you natural lashes, but don’t worry baby ones have already grown to replace them, thus why you have probably never noticed. Unfortunately it is hard to determine which lash is ready to fall out naturally so it is unpredictable when applying the synthetic lashes. Each day we can lose 3-5 natural lashes, but often they fall out unnoticed unless they fall into your eye, but when eyelash extensions are applied we are more aware of when they shed as the extensions are longer, darker and thicker. If you sleep on your stomach with your face squashed into the pillow or you favour sleeping on one side you may notice the lashes may not last as well as the other side. We recommend to book a refill for 2-3 weeks to keep the full maintained look. Watch out for your lash cycle as right after is the perfect time for a refill!!
Absolutely – following the initial two day period. Our adhesives are strong and waterproof and will withstand normal wear and tear, providing the proper after-care instructions are followed lash extensions will not stop you from your life style activities. As in the after-care instructions, special care in the first 48 hours is very important to maximise the strength of the adhesive bond as it does need to completely cure before these activities.

Eyelash Extensions can only be applied to natural eyelashes.

NOTE: Eyelash extensions should not, and in many cases cannot, be applied to clients who have alopecia, are undergoing chemotherapy, or those who suffer from Trichotillomania, unless the individual has received effective treatment and normal lash growth has resumed.you may need a medical certificate if want application.
Yes, Lash Holic eyelash extensions products are completely safe and will not damage your natural lashes when applied using the correct technique. As with any beauty treatment we recommend that you use a professional trained and certified eyelash extension technician as application by an uncertified technician, or use of inferior quality products, may result in damage to your natural lashes.
The entire procedure is very relaxing, taking between 1 – 2.5 hours to apply a complete set of Eyelash Extensions depending on the design. During this time you will be lying on a comfortable beauty bed with your eyes closed – many people fall asleep and wake to find their eyelash extensions complete. Eyelash Extensions Infill treatments take approximately 45mins to 1 hour.
Yes, normal use of eye makeup is fine, however you should not find it necessary to use mascara on a daily basis, if you would like to use mascara at any time it is essential you only use a water-based mascara (not water-proof or oil-based) – regular use of mascara may shorten the lifespan of your lash extensions. Care must also be taken when removing makeup not to use any products that are contain oil or glycols – these all weaken the adhesive bond and cause eyelash extensions to fall off prematurely.
Precious lash application time can easily be used up by the need to clean eyes in preparation for your treatment – to avoid this please come to your appointment with clean, makeup free eyes. Be prepared to relax for 1-2 hours during this time you will have your eyes closed. Some clients like to listen to their ipods/mps players.
