What’s the difference between Mega Volume vs Russian Volume

The difference between Russian Mega Volume and Russian Volume Lashes is how many lash extensions are used to create the fan and the diameter of the extensions in the fan. Just like Russian lashes I create a wide handmade fan to achieve a full and fluffy look.

Will lash extensions ruin my eyelashes?

Eyelash extensions do not ruin your natural lashes when cared for properly. Following my recommended aftercare steps will ensure your natural lashes are kept healthy.
Only if the lashes are badly applied then you may see some breakage but as a professional technician I have never seen any damaged eyelashes.

When Should I Take a break from Eyelash Extensions?

You can take a break from eyelashes at any time. I will professionally remove the extensions very gently. Please don’t remove them yourself as this can cause damage to your eyelashes.

You may feel a little sad when they are gone! Not to worry! With the right care and application your own natural lashes won’t have changed at all, they will still be as strong and as healthy as they were pre lash extensions, so you don’t need to wait until you have a fresh set!

What’s the difference between Eyelash Extensions vs Lash Lifts

Eyelash extensions involve the bonding of individual lashes to your natural
lashes with the help of a medical grade adhesive by an experienced artist to make them look physically fuller and longer.

A lash lift involves the natural curling and perming of your lashes to make them appear longer and fuller. So, the lash lifts give an enhanced look to your natural lashes while the eyelash extensions can be used for a rather dramatic effect. Ultimately, it all comes down to your preference.

What is the perfect lash Length?

It does depend on your natural eyelash and their natural length as to what length extensions you should go for.

Our natural lashes are also a great indicator of what lengths would flatter us most. Those with naturally long eyelashes may find a longer length extension would be the perfect length for a natural flattering look.

Those with eyelashes that are shorter may feel a shorter length to be ideal. It all depends on you and your natural lashes!

What Colour Eyelash Extensions are Best?

Black lashes are the most popular. Alternatively, I offer brown lash extensions which can equally look amazing while appearing very natural.

What are the benefits of Eyelash Extensions?

  1. It Saves You A Lot Of Time – Getting lash extensions means you don’t need to put on mascara anymore! You do not need to use false lashes or makeup to create the appearance of thick and long lashes. You can deviate from your normal makeup routine. You can use that time to catch up on some sleep in the morning. Women who choose lash extensions prefer an unmade-up appearance in order to stand out in a crowd. Lash extensions completely eliminate the need for eyeliner, mascara, and other forms of eye makeup.

  2. It Makes You Feel Good About Yourself – Lashes that are long and thick can increase your self-confidence. They offer you a gorgeous, confident appearance. Lash extensions boost your self-esteem and make you feel good about yourself. You do not need to wear makeup every day. Lash extensions on their own will work wonders. Lash extensions can be personalized to fit your unique appearance and personality. It adds length, volume, and blackness to your hair, making it appear more natural and youthful. As the saying goes: when you look nice, you feel good.

  3. It Is Worth The Cost – Women avoid lash extensions due to their perceived high cost. However, they overlook the fact that it reduces the need for mascara, eyeliner, and any other form of cosmetics to define or highlight the lashes. You can save your money and use it for other things instead.

  4. It Is A Great Way To Pamper Yourself – Getting lash extensions is a great way to treat yourself. All you have to do is close your eyes and lie down on a bed. It will take around an hour and a half to complete the process. Meanwhile, in the salon, the technician carries out the operation while you rest and listen to relaxing music. Lash extensions do not add any weight to your lashes. You won’t even notice you’re wearing one.

Should I use Eyelash Extension Kits?

Whilst it is tempting to buy a home kit off companies like amazon, I would highly recommend to avoid. A technician like myself undergoes hours of training to be able to perform this service.
There are associated risks with doing your own individual eyelash extensions as the eye area is very sensitive and delicate, using tweezers and the lash adhesive yourself can cause injury or an infection.
It’s also worth considering the quality of the products available from companies prepared to sell professional products to people who are not trained – particularly adhesives.

How do I Remove Eyelash Extensions

This should be done by a trained professional, the lashes are coated in a gel or cream remover and gently removed. This can take up to 30 minutes depending on how many extensions are left.
Many people will try to remove with oil but this simply won’t do the job and removing at home can cause breaking and damage to your natural lashes.

I use a gel or cream remover depending on your sensitivity and preference

How Often Do I Need Infills for my Eyelash Extension?

We naturally lose on average between one and five eyelashes a day. So each individuals natural cycle is very different.

Generally, most people require infills every 2 to 4 weeks. If left to long you may require a new full set.
