What should I know before getting lash extensions? Red Lotus in Beaverton, Oregon lets you in on what to expect before heading to the salon.
Today we are sharing some of our frequently asked questions about lash extensions.
How long does it take to apply lash extensions?
Appointments take about 2 hours depending on the set of natural lashes. Lashes that are weak or short cannot handle a huge set like Kim Kardashian's for example, so the times can vary between people.
Can glue get in my eye?
Your eyes are closed throughout the whole two hours. However, if your eye is sensitive to the glue, it can cause some irritation and you should tell the technician immediately.
How often do i need to get my extensions touched up?
I recommend around 2-3 weeks. After the three weeks, they are usually getting sparse and your regular touch up appointment may run longer. Fill appointments take 45 minutes to one hour.
Do the lash extensions fall out after a certian period of time?
Yes, the eyelash extensions fall out with your natural lashes. On average, we lose 2-3 lashes per day. Most of the time we do not notice losing our natural eyelashes but you can notice more with the extensions.
Finally, what questions should you ask the technician before having lash extension applied?
Make sure your tech is trained and certified. Ask if they have had hands on training, how long they have been practicing and ask to see pictures of their work. Red Lotus is certified in classic and volume lash extensions.
