Why choose me for your lashes?

I believe all women deserve beautiful lashes. Those lashes should be fun, slightly flirty and always pretty.  People should wonder and not know you're wearing extensions. Unless you’re looking to have the very dramatic look. They should never hurt, clump together or be heavy feeling.  After years of applying lashes I have learned to look out for you and your lashes, knowing what length and weight of lash extension will work is what is important for you to have and keep your natural lashes healthy and strong underneath extensions. I have found that women wear lashes for many reasons and it is rarely to impress others.  It is usually to save time, avoid the hassle of smearing and smudging mascara or to feel extra pretty at an important event. Plus an hour cat nap every few weeks has never hurt. I love the instant results, that eye opening effect and the wonderful relationships I have created with each and every one of my clients. Whether you decide to choose me for your lash extension, lash lift or lash tint, you can be confident I will always choose what will be best for you and your lashes.

Frequently Asked Questions 

WHAT ARE EYELASH EXTENSIONS & HOW ARE THEY APPLIED?

Eyelash extensions are synthetic lashes made of a lightweight polyester material. These "lashes" are made to look like your own natural lashes. They create increased length and fullness. Extensions are available in may different lengths, curls, and thicknesses. The proper length and size is determined for each client, multiple sizes are used for each client. The lashes are then applied to your natural lashes one by one.

WHATS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LASH LIFT & LASH PERM?

They are the same procedure just different names.  Also known as Lash Lamination or a Keratin Lash Lift.  Keratin Lash lifts on some occasions will finish the procedure with a conditioner at the end of the service. As with hair perms, lash perms can be very drying to the natural lash and it is possible to have frizzing of the tips of the lashes.  We do not recommend Lash Lifts/Perms for fine lashes, those over 55 or those with thyroid conditions as they tend to have an increased risk of frizzing lashes. Lashes should also be at least 9 mm long to achieve a desired look.

WHO IS AUTHORIZED TO APPLY LASH EXTENSIONS IN IOWA?

In Iowa, you must be a licensed cosmetologist or a licensed esthetician to apply eyelash products of any kind. Nail technicians, massage therapists, and registered nurses (RN) are not authorized to apply lashes unless they also hold an esthetician or cosmetology license. 

WHY WONT YOU SEE ME IF I HAVE ASHES THAT ARE APPLIED BY ANOTHER LASH SPECIALIST?

Many times, the lashes are stuck together and/or much too long for the health of your natural lashes. I would feel obligated to correct any such problems but would not have time to do so in a touch-up time slot. Also, usually they require removal to minimize any damage. It is rare to see lashes from stylists that meet my strict standards.

WHY DO LASH EXTENSIONS COST SO MUCH?

Eyelash extensions, when applied properly, is a very intricate, time-consuming practice that requires a high level of skill and attention to detail. The products that I use are only of the highest quality and are very costly. It takes a lot of practice and time to master the art of eyelash application. I also guarantee my work for the first 7 days ( I must being contacted with in those days). Any loss of lash extensions needing adjustments or a fix after 7 days will be charged a regular 2-week touch-up price.

CAN EVERYONE WEAR LASH EXTENSIONS?

Unfortunately, no. If you are very sensitive to adhesives such as medical tape, glue for acrylic nails, or hair dye, you are most likely not a good candidate for lash extension. If you have difficulty with your thyroid and have thin, brittle hair and nails due to thyroid problems, then lashes are most likely not a good choice for you.

 

Just a note here: I can only apply lash extensions to the lashes you already have to make them thicker and longer.

HOW LONG DO LASH EXTENSIONS LAST?

It depends on what is meant by last. You will still have some lash extensions attached to your natural lashes after 4-6 weeks. That being said, they won’t look good. To keep lashes looking full and fresh, it is recommend touch-ups at 2-3 weeks.

 

Lashes grow from the follicle, mature, and then fall out. Most people do not realize that their natural lashes fall out continuously. They constantly shed and replace themselves—that is why with proper applications, you can wear lash extensions for years and not need a break.

 

We recommend 2-4 week re-lash appointments to keep lashes looking good all the time. Most of clients return at the 3-week time for their re-lash appointments. This is a 70-minute appointment. Again, this varies depending on the number of lashes you have, your lifestyle, your lash growth pattern, and most importantly, home care.
