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, usually between 4 and 5 weeks. Depending on your activity and day-to-day routine, refills should only be required every 2 to 3 weeks.
     

How often should I get refills?

  • We recommend getting a refill every 2 to 3 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 Lash Extensions safe?

  • Hula Lash only uses pharmaceutical grade adhesive which never comes in contact with your skin. Synthetic 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 24-48 hours after the eyelash application. A special waterproof bonding agent is used. 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 24-48 hours

  • 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 ambient music is played while the professional technician 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 technician 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 a mild 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.

 

Do I need an appointment?

  • Yes! We work by appointment only. Please call any of our locations to schedule your appointment today!

 

Cancellation Policy

  • If you are unable to keep your reservation, you must call 24 hours prior to your reservation date and time to cancel your reservation. If you call within 24 hours, we will charge you 50% of the service fee.

WAXING 12 things you really want to know before your first Waxing services

1. Grow out your hair for four weeks

  • Yes, four. As hard as that may be, you should wait for your hair to be a quarter of an inch long. Think about it this way: The shorter the hair, the harder the pull, because short hair is denser.

 

2. Pop an Advil or Tylenol before your appointment

  • Or a pain reliever of your choice. Anything that will make the skin less inflamed

 

3. Don’t go five days before or five days after your period

  • Your body will be more sensitive

 

4. Exfoliate the night or morning before your wax

  • Using a sugar scrub will help remove dead skin cells (A key to a clean wax and fewer ingrown hairs)

 

5. Work out before your wax, but not after

  • If you sweat on skin that’s freshly waxed in tight yoga pants, there’s no hair to absorb the sweat and the friction will cause irritation

 

6. Get your wax at least three days before you’re slipping into a swimsuit

  • For seriously sensitive women, it can take this long for redness to go down. Salt water and chlorine will get into your open pores and cause more irritation if you get waxed the day of

 

7. Know what type of wax you’re getting

  • There are two kinds of wax. Soft wax, or the wax pulled up with a cloth strip, is used for thinner hair, while hard wax is directly ripped off the skin. “At Bliss, we apply oils to lubricate the skin and use hard wax over it. This way, the wax sticks to the hair and not the skin,” Quintero explains. Many places will use a combination of the two waxes. If you find you prefer one, don’t hesitate to tell your aesthetician.
     

8. Plan your wax-day outfit

  • You don’t want something super tight or chafing afterward. Something that’s comfy and easy to pull on and off is more convenient. Not a suit and pantyhose.

 

9. Do a sanitation check

  • If you walk into a place, and your waxer doesn’t have gloves on or you see her double dipping her popsicle-stick-like spatula into a big cauldron of wax, get out of there immediately. It’s okay to say you changed your mind and you don’t want to do it.

 

10. Know a few things about pain reduction

  • A good aesthetician will pull the skin taut right before waxing it and then press the waxed area firmly right after. These two things can make waxing much less painful, and a good aesthetician will do them for you. Also, take a deep breath—it helps in yoga, it will help here (or try this five-minute meditation). This is also a place where you can look at your phone—or talk to your waxer. :) You’ll need the distraction.

 

11. Practice waxing after-care

  • Some aestheticians recommend witch hazel or other toning or exfoliating wipes to clients who tend to get ingrown hairs, and others may need something to calm redness. (Zinc-based diaper cream works wonders. Also, freshly waxed skin will be more sensitive to sun, since dead skin cells also come off.  So if you’re heading to the beach, take extra care to apply sunscreen.

12. It will get better

  • The more you get waxed, the less it will hurt. The first time is the most intense. Afterwards, we’re not working with hard, stubbly hair, so it comes up more easily. That explains why women who’ve been going for years hardly bat an eyelash.
