What Are Eyelash Extensions?
Lash Extensions are synthetic strands that are made to replicate a natural eyelash. When applied, eyelash extensions lengthen and thicken your own natural eyelashes. 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 a professional, eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes. Depending on your activity and day-to-day routine, refills should only be required every 2 to 4 weeks.
How often should I get refills?
We recommend getting a refill every 2 to 4 weeks. A refill is needed to fill in any lashes that have fallen due to the natural cycle of your own lashes. Refill appointments require approximately 50-60 minutes.
Are Lashes safe?
HD Beauty only uses pharmaceutical grade adhesive which never comes in contact with your skin. Synthetic/ Mink eyelashes are adhered about 1mm away from your skin.
Can I apply mascara to Eyelash Extensions?
Mascara is not really required since the extensions actually give the illusion of wearing mascara. In fact, one of the many benefits of eyelash extensions is that you do not need to use mascara. If you must apply mascara, however, only use water-based mascara. DO NOT USE OIL-BASED OR WATER-PROOF MASCARA as they can dissolve the bonding agent used and they can shorten the life of your eyelash extensions. Use care when washing off the water-based mascara and only use a water based eye makeup remover.
Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing eyelash extensions?
Yes. The bonding agent used to apply your eyelash extensions is waterproof and allows you to shower, swim, exercise etc.
How soon can I wash my face after the extensions are applied?
We recommend that you do not wash your eye area for about 24 hours after the eyelash application. Glue does not contain any fumes or irritants and is long lasting.
How do I take care of my new eyelash extensions?
Do not get lashes wet for the first 24hours
Avoid hot steam or sauna
For longer lasting lashes, limit the use of running water directly on your lashes
Avoid rubbing your eyes excessively
Use water based eye makeup remover
Do not perm your lashes
Do not use a mechanical eyelash curler
Do not pull on your lashes
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.
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. Relaxing ambiant music is played while the lash artist applies your lash extensions. Your lower lashes will be covered. The extensions will be then applied to your upper lashes one at a time.
How do I choose the look I want?
Eyelash extensions are available in a number of lengths and thickness. Your lash artist will consult with you to understand what type of style you are interested in. The overall look of the lashes is very natural.
Do I have to do anything to prepare for the service?
You should thoroughly clean your lashes with eyelash extension cleanser. Do not use oily makeup remover to clean your lashes prior to the application. Lashes should not be curled (unless directed otherwise by your technician) and all mascara should be removed.
I wear contacts. Can I still get lash extensions?
Yes! Since lash extensions do not touch your skin, they do not conflict or interfere with your contacts or normal daily activities.

Yes! We work by appointment only. Please call to schedule your appointment today!
