Are you licensed?

This is the first question you should ask your lash artist before you get your lash extensions. Unfortunately, there are many people offering lash extensions without a license. In order to ensure you are getting top-quality eyelash extensions, you want to be sure that you are seeking extensions from a professional. Some places may give you the option to choose the skill level of your lash artist, offering a discount for the less-skilled artists. That being said, it is always important to ask if your lash artist is licensed before they start work on your lashes.

How long have you been applying lash extensions?

Not only is this questions good to know if you’re thinking about getting lash extensions, but it will also help you get to know your lash artist. As we mentioned above, there are some lash salons that give you the option to choose the skill level of your artist. While the highest skill level has most likely been doing lash extensions for longer, there is no harm in asking. The same goes for the lowest skill tier. Having a newer lash artist doesn’t necessarily mean that you won’t receive quality eyelash extensions, especially if your lash artist went through rigorous training. Not to mention, new lash artists could still have a year or two of experience!

How do I make my lash extensions last as long as possible?

In previous blogs, we’ve mentioned that your natural lashes go through a growth cycle where they will naturally fall out and be replaced by new lashes. Because your eyelash extensions are attached to your existing lashes, it is completely normal that they will fall out when your natural lashes do. That being said, there are a few things that you can do to ensure that you get the most out of your eyelash extensions before you need to come in for a filler.

High-quality lashes and adhesive – Be sure that your lash artist is using high-quality lash extensions and adhesive. Using quality materials will help your extensions securely bond with your natural lashes, avoiding any unnecessary loss of your extensions.
Use an oil-free makeup remover – If you choose to wear makeup with your eyelash extensions, make sure that it is all oil-free, as oil will counteract the adhesive and wreak havoc on your lashes. In addition to wearing oil-free makeup, it’s important that you use an oil-free makeup remover. Additionally, be sure to use a cotton swab when removing makeup near your lashes to avoid accidentally pulling any out.

How often do I need to get my lashes filled?

As we mentioned above, your lashes go through a natural growth cycle. Your eyelash extensions typically last between 30 to 60 days with proper care. Within that time, you will come back to the lash salon and have one of our lash artists apply fillers to help you maintain your gorgeous, thick eyelashes. However, the time in between appointments depends on how well you maintain your lashes after they are adhered to your natural lashes.
