What are Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash extensions are silk, mink, or lightweight synthetic lashes applied directly on natural lashes. The extensions are applied using a semi-permanent adhesive by a professional lash artist. 

Additionally, the extensions are mostly applied on the top lash line, and they are applied either in “clusters” or “fans” or individually.

When using lash extensions, especially if it’s the first time, you might fear having unnatural results or allergic reactions. This is why it is necessary to consider all the factors before using eyelash extensions to get your desired look.

Hour Lashes is committed to helping you look and feel your personal best by providing the highest level of medical grade cosmetic procedures. Each of our services is carefully designed to fit your unique needs, and our highly experienced staff is ready to support your every step of the way. Reach out today to learn more.

What is Full-Set / Fill / Fill+?

Full-Set

Well, like you might have guessed, a full set is a type of eyelash extension procedure that involves a full-coverage of the eyelashes. This means that an individual eyelash extension is applied for every natural lash that you have, leaving the lashes to look very full and long

Fill

FILL –  Lash extension fills are simply new lashes placed on natural lashes as the old ones are about to fall off. Ideally, your client should come in every two to four weeks, but longer wait times may mean a longer treatment time as more lashes will need to be filled.  (Up to 2.5 weeks)

Fill +

Fill +  - A fill + service is for a person that currently has eyelash extension on.   A Fill + service is a service we charge for clients that have passed the 2.5 weeks mark and for some of our outside fill clients that are coming from a different salon to fill.  Usually if you have lost more than 60% of lashes and is under one month.  Outside fills will require consultation from the stylist to see if we can proceed with the fill.  If fill is not possible, the stylist may recommend a Full-Set . (3-4 weeks, before one month)

What is Lash Lift?

Lash Lift

What Is a Lash Lift?

“A lash lift curls your lash from base to tip so that you can see the full length,” explains Clementina Richardson, celebrity lash expert and founder of Envious Lashes in New York City and Miami. All lashes have a natural shape to them, so this process alters that shape via a tiny curling rod and a lifting solution. (It’s not as scary as it sounds, as your eyes are closed as it’s applied but yes, there are some chemicals involved.) The treatment should always be performed by a licensed professional.

The difference between the two

Difference between Eyelash Extensions and Eyelash Lift

Although both the treatments are used to make the lashes longer, fuller and alluring, however, they work differently. 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.
On the other hand, 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.

The Pros and Cons

Pros and Cons between Eye-Lash Extensions and Lash lift

Pros of Lash Lifts

The biggest pro of lash lift is that they look absolutely natural as compared to the extensions. Another benefit of the lash lifts is that they help you in sorting the untamed lashes which start to crisscross or get twisted. A great lash lift makes them manageable by straightening them. Another great advantage associated with the lash lifts is that the maintenance every 8-12 weeks vs every 2-4 weeks with extensions and since you are using your very own natural lashes, there aren’t as many associated irritation

Cons of Lash Lifts

One of the biggest cons of the lash lifts is that many people can’t get theirs lifted for being too short. So, there are various limitations as you are helpless about the capabilities of your natural lashes. For instance, if they are too short, you can’t get them curled up to give the effect that you might be looking for.

Pros of Eyelash Extensions

Eyelash extensions if done right are the best thing that can happen to a woman. They give the most dramatic look to your eyes and would be particularly perfect if your wedding is coming up. They make your mornings much more relaxing as you don’t have to worry about putting on makeup and can simply step out without applying any mascara and yet looking fabulous with those popping eyes and alluring lashes.

     

Cons of Eyelash Extensions

You cannot risk getting them applied from anyone as it is a job for a professional artist to apply them properly as you wouldn’t want your lashes to look clumpy. If not properly applied, they would have to be taken out and in doing so may harm your natural lashes. And the biggest drawback of the lash extensions is their high maintenance as they last for only a month and may also need a touch up in between.

How to choose the right one for you?

In order to choose the best one for you, it is important to know what type of look you want to attain. If you want a dramatic look, go for the extensions while for a natural look, lash lift would be more suitable. Furthermore, if you have short lashes, lash extensions would be the best solution for you.

After-Care

Avoid Water, Sweat, and Hot Tubs Within the First 48 Hours

Avoiding water, sweat, and hot tubs helps the glue to set perfectly around the extensions. Waiting for this time allows the lashes to last longer. 
You can wash the rest of your face but avoid water coming into contact with the eye area. Additionally, avoid steaming your face, washing your hair, and yoga during this time since it is impossible to carry out these activities without interfering with the extension glue.

Avoid Rubbing Your Eyes

This rule applies during the first 48 hours when the glue has not yet set. Rubbing your eyes could also transfer germs to lashes, leading to infections of your eyes.
After 48 hours, it is safe to touch or rub your eyes. However, as long as you have the eyelash extensions on, you should avoid rubbing your eyes as much as possible to help keep the extensions in place.

Avoid Eye Makeup

Using eye makeup in the first 48 hours after application is not advised. 
After 48 hours, as the eyelash extensions make your eyes pop, you can skip the eye makeup altogether. But if you must use eye products, go for oil-free makeup and apply light strokes to prevent the lashes from falling off.

Protect Your Lashes in The Shower

Eyelash extensions should not disrupt your shower routine, especially after the first 48 hours. 
Unfortunately, if you are not careful, it is possible to ruin the extensions with water. Consider purchasing a Lashbrella Shower Shield from Amazon, which will help avoid water running into your lashes when you shower.
