What Are Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash Extensions are a popular new service and product that lengthens and thickens your own natural eyelashes.
Lash Extensions are single strands of synthetic or silk eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. They are applied to each individual natural eyelash one by one for a natural, beautiful and luscious look.
With Elicils you can choose the look your want with 12 different colors and 11 different lengths of eyelashes.
You will sit or lay comfortably with your eyes closed. The Eyelash professional will then apply an under eye gel pad to cover your lower lashes. Then the extensions will be applied to each individual eyelash on a hair by hair basis. The application process is pain-free and relaxing that most clients fall asleep during the procedure.
We recommend getting a touch up every 3 weeks to fill in any lashes that fallen.
How long will it take to Apply Eyelash Extensions and how is it done?
The application process for lash extensions normally takes anywhere from 2,5 to 3 hours with someone who is experienced doing these. We normally consult with you first to see what type of style you are interested in. We also determine what your lashes can hold in regards to size. Each person's lashes will vary in strength and length. We take this into consideration when creating a look for you. The overall look of the lashes is very natural.
Is the product safe?
Currently the eyelash extensions are applied to the natural eyelash hairs and do not touch the skin. However, improper application by an unqualified eyelash technician can cause damage to your natural lashes.
Eyelash Extensions are applied by a licensed, certified and experienced Specialist (please, ask for a diploma).
How long will a set of Eyelash Extensions Last?
When applied properly, eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes. Your natural eyelashes fall off every 30 - 60 days due to the natural growth cycle and are naturally replaced with the growth of a new eyelash. Everyone's experience will differ but we recommend getting a touch up every 3 to 4 weeks.
A special waterproof bonding agent is used. If you wait too long your eyelash extensions will fall out and you will require a full set.
Glue does not contain any fumes or irritants and is long lasting.
Other factors such as exposure to steam or touching your eyes a lot may cause the extensions to fall sooner. A touch up is needed to fill in any lashes that fallen.
Touch ups average about 40 to 50 minutes.
What do Eyelash Extensions look like when applied?
With proper application, meaning one synthetic or silk eyelash applied to one natural lash the look and feel is completely natural looking and real. None will know you have extensions. They will just think you were born with beautiful, long lashes!
Can I apply mascara to Eyelash Extensions?
YES, even though mascara is not really required since the extensions actually give the illusion of wearing mascara it can be worn. DO NOT USE OIL-BASED OR WATER-PROOF MASCARA. Waterproof mascara or any type of oil based mascara can dissolve the bonding agent and shorten the life of your eyelash extensions causing them to fall sooner. Care also needs to be taken in washing off the mascara. Only use a water based eye makeup remover. Both available in our Shop.
Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing Eyelash Extensions?
YES. The bonding agent we use is waterproof and allows you to shower, swim, exercise etc. Special care is required but overall maintenance is low. We do recommend however that you do not wash your eye area for about 48 hours after the eyelash application.
Can I use Eyelash Curlers with Eyelash Extensions?
We do not recommend using mechanical eyelash curlers on your eyelash extensions as these curlers will damage the extensions and possibly your own natural lashes.
The extensions do have a natural curl but if more of a curl is required we recommend using only a heated eyelash curler (available in our shop).
