FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT LASH EXTENSIONS:
*What are Lash Extensions?
Novalash Lash Extensions are a way to extend the length and thickness of natural eyelashes, and are a practical, convenient and beautiful alternative to the daily use of mascara. Unlike decades-old, traditional false lashes, lash extensions are the first innovation in lash lengthening that can be worn daily, without nightly removal. Because each tapered, synthetic lash is bonded to a single natural lash, the final result is of effortless glamour and difficult to detect even close up.
*HOW LONG DO THEY REALLY LAST?
Novalash Lash Extensions can be worn endlessly. First, you have an initial appointment for a Full set of lash extensions where a lash artist designs your custom Novalash Volume lashes. Then you revisit your lash artist for Lash Fills every 2-4 weeks. How frequently you get Lash Fills done is up to you, and how plentiful you like your lashes to be. Like hair color, or nail polish growing out, natural lashes shed in a 4-6 week cycle and new eyelashes grow in their place. During your Lash Fill appointment, fresh extensions are added to restore a flawless appearance. Lash Fills typically last 1 hour to 1.5 hours depending on how long its been since your last lash application. This time is spent filling your new natural eyelashes with fresh extensions. Having your lash extensions filled once or twice a month by your lash artist, and using Novalash's clean-lash aftercare, ensures no end date to having stunning extensions that wear as your own. There is no limit for how long you wear your lash extensions with regular maintenance and aftercare.
*CAN LASH EXTENSIONS HARM NATURAL LASHES?
When applied properly, Novalash extensions will not harm natural lashes. The Novalash application technique allows natural lashes to grow and thrive with extensions. This technique requires several different “separation” steps during the application process so each extension is adhered to a single natural lash in order to prevent interruption of the lash growth cycle.
*CAN MASCARA BE USED WITH LASH EXTENSIONS?
Mascara is typically not needed with lash extensions. Mascara should only be used when a Lash Fill is drawing near. Water-soluble mascara can be worn; however constant use of mascara may shorten the lifespan of lashes. Waterproof mascara is not recommended for use, as it will dissolve the bond with the lashes. Novalash glycol and carbonate free mascara is specifically formulated for use on extensions without interfering with the adhesive. Novalash's safe mascara can be purchased from your lash artist. As well as an impressive collection of long wear eye shadows and eyeliners by Novalash.
*ONCE APPLIED, WHAT IS THE PROPER WAY TO CARE FOR LASHES?
To maximize the life of the extensions, Novalash’s Clean-lash (conditioning/cleansing/ make up remover pads) are perfect for cleaning the lashes free of any makeup or debris while moisturizing the lashes to maintain flexibility. Using a lash wand, supplied by your lash artist, combing the lashes free of tangles is also recommended. Lash Fills every 2-4 weeks maintain the beautiful look of your lash extensions. You shouldn’t leave a hair salon without top of the line hair products – same with your lashes! Novalash Clean lash can be purchased from your Novalash lash artist.
*WHERE CAN I GET THEM DONE?
