Lash Extensions FAQs
What Are Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash Extensions are individual strands of synthetic fibers made to replicate a natural eyelash. When applied, eyelash extensions lengthen and thicken your own natural eyelashes. The single strands are applied to each individual eyelash, one by one. With proper application, lash extensions look and feel completely natural.
How long will a set of Eyelash Extensions last?
When applied by one of our artists, eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your own eyelashes. Depending on your activity and day-to-day routine, refills should only be required every 2 to 4 weeks.
Are Lash Extensions safe?
Lash Galore only uses professional grade adhesive which never comes in contact with your skin. Synthetic eyelashes adhere about 1mm away from your skin.
Can I apply mascara to Eyelash Extensions?
Our eyelash extensions are designed to give your natural lashes an improved look of fullness so mascara is not needed.
Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing eyelash extensions?
We do ask you to minimize the chance of wetting the extensions for the first 48 hours of wear. After that 48-hour period, the adhesive used to apply your eyelash extensions is secure enough to allow you to get right back to your routine. However, keeping away from extensive contact with steam such as in saunas or certain facials is not recommended since it can begin to loosen the bond.
How soon can I wash my face after the extensions are applied?
The suggested time frame is 24-48 hours. For a guest with sensitivities, it is suggested to wash within the first 12 hours of application.
How do I take care of my new eyelash extensions?
- Avoid getting lashes wet for the first 24-48 hours
- Avoid hot steam or sauna
- Do not perm eyelashes or manually curl.
- Brush with a clean mascara wand daily.
- TIP: Sometimes mornings are a mess! Try washing your lashes with water in the morning and gently brushing the top side of the extensions with a finger placed beneath. If too much tugging is noticed, a quick stop at your local studio may be necessary to help separate these extensions.
Is the product FDA approved? Is it safe?
Currently, the FDA is not regulating eyelash extensions because the eyelash extensions are applied to the natural eyelash hairs and do not touch the skin. The application process is pain-free. Some clients consider the process relaxing and even sleep through the appointment.
How long will it take to apply eyelash extensions and how is it done?
The application process for lash extensions normally takes about 90-120 minutes for a full set of lashes and 45-60 minutes for a refill. You will lay comfortably on a massage table with your eyes closed while relaxing ambient music is played in the background. During application, your lower lashes will be covered and the extensions will be applied only to your upper lashes one at a time.
How do I choose the look I want?
Your technician will consult with you to understand what type of style you are interested in and what look will work best with your natural lashes. The overall look of the lashes can range from very natural to very voluminous! Refer to our Service Menu for more info!
Do I have to do anything to prepare for the service?
To remove any eye makeup, use an oil-free makeup remover to cleanse your lashes prior to the appointment as well to remove any leftover mascara. Lashes should not be permed or manually curled at the time of appointment.
What happens if I choose to have my eyelash extensions removed?
We do offer a service to have the extensions removed involving a short thirty-minute appointment in which we apply a gel remover. The gel remover is applied on top of the extensions without touching the skin and allowed to sit for 10 minutes. Once the adhesive is dissolved the extensions are gently wiped away with lint free applicators exposing the natural lashes.
Happy with product. Good attention...on my 3rd or 4th bottle.
Quick delivery. Easy to use. Strong recommend it
I am so thankful for these glasses! My eyes would always get blurry while I lashed when I wore regular magnifying glasses. I would have to stop and blink a couple times just to clear my vision. I thought my eyes were going bad so i went and got my eyes checked! Result: eyes were good, better than before! Lol Then, when I saw the post about them on your IG, I knew I had to get them and try them out.
I would purposely make my eyes blurry when I wore these glasses during my lash sessions and it didn’t even impair my focus at all! I was amazed! These glasses are so worth investment!
This glue works in any Environment and the retention is amazing
These lashes are so light and my clients LOVE them, they say they do not get tangled like other brands and feel much lighter on their lashes! I also would like to add that these are so plentiful and easy to grip! They fan with ease which means there is no room for waste! Absolutely love them!
I’m new to lashing and after ordering from a bunch of different brands , I have to say I love these the best! They fan so easy !!!
I love this glue, it’s help me speed up my full sets
I am a beginner and I am getting used to this tweezer but I’m already loving it!
I’ve tried many different brands and I’m in love with these lashes!! They come off the strip easily and fan like butter! My volume sets are fluffy now thanks to lash galore!!
It says it was delivered but I never received my order.
Love this glue! I’ve tried many glues and I found this one the best one
I have noticed a huge difference in my retention!! Will buy again!
I loved using this adhesive, as it made making fans really easy. It helped me align them if needed be. However, the retention was not there for my clients as another one I was using prior from a different brand. I think it could work for someone else but it just didn’t for me unfortunately😭
These are so beautiful! The quality is definitely top of line!
The grip on these are perfect, so easy to work with!
Literally the perfect product! So easy to work with!
So far, I love it! I’ve been buying up glues from other brands and having the worse retention with all of them. I read the reviews for this one, and thought why not since I love the super bond. Usually when I brush through my sets I always have a lot of fall out, when using this there hasn’t been any. Ps It really does smell like banana’s lol. Oh and I live in SoCal! I noticed with the reviews no one said where they lived so it made it a little harder to see if the glue would be good for where I live. Hope this helps!
i just became lash tech, and my biggest challenge is the lash fans, i was taking too long. i started following lashgalore, i saw her demonstrate the pinch technique and saw how easy it was with her foil strip. i ordered 3 trays 2 mix 0.05 and 1 0.07 mix, i tried the pinch technique then BOMB! I DID IT! the fans were easy and spread like a peacock......i made the right choice and will order much more. THANK YOU
Can almost do an entire set without have to use additional glue!
The tweezers have a bomb grip ! They are my new favs definitely recommend!
Love the grip and how easy it is to make fans! I had a go to tweezer I still use but the tension on the other ones caused hand cramping and fatigue with these you don’t need heavy pressure at all for the amazing grip and so my hands are never fatigued after lashing for hours! Amazing!
Great grip! Use for volume, works great!
lash galore has always been my brand of choice. Absolutely love and they fan like butter!
The texture, not to watery and it’s quick to stick. Will be purchasing again!
My clients love how soft they are
I simply fell in love with how smooth these fan out. The quality of the lash is amazing. Darkness on point. I'm stocking these up I'm so obsessed!
I love the size and quality of this mirror!
I love this bundle!😍 the tweezers are amazing perfect for doing mega & volume fans. If your looking for a great deal this is the one ☝🏼
Love it! One of my top favorite! So smooth. I highly recommend.
First time trying and I’m SOLD!! I will forever be buying from lash galore!!😍
I like to use the pinch method to make my fans and it’s hard for me to find quality trays that aren’t expensive! They fan easily and I appreciate that they’re loose and don’t have that glue at the base. Overall I’m really happy I found Lash Galore! The only thing is that I wish the trays had a couple more strips in them!
This was a bit different it was thicker but I actually love it dries fast and the retention on my client is really good ☺️
everything about this order was perfect. the tweezers are amazing. the lashes are so beautiful and i received it in the mail super quick as well!
I recently purchased practice kit #2, definitely best choice I made. Fans are so easy to make, tweezers are so easy to control! 10/10 recommend to start off with .
This mirror is absolutely beautiful and great to have and the quality is so good it’s ever lash techs must have!
love the grip on the black series!!! so much fast and easier to create fans!! absolutely love these tweezers!!
I wanted to try them out. Love their lashes but wasn't happy with the tweezer.
