What are eyelash extensions?

M Beauty Studio – Eyelash Extensions

Eyelash extensions boost the length, thickness, and fullness of your natural lashes. Extensions are the easiest way to achieve the perfect lashes without mascara or falsies.

Our lash extension services add more lashes to your existing ones to get fuller, bolder, natural-looking lashes.

What Are Eyelash extensions?

Lash extensions are a semi-permanent solution to help enhance the look of your natural lash line. Unlike false lashes, eyelash extensions are attached to your existing individual natural lashes using a specialized professional-grade adhesive. We use silk, mink, and faux mink lashes at M Beauty Studio in various lengths, thicknesses, and shapes to customize your look.

Certified Lash Technician in CT

Applying lash extensions is a delicate process requiring a certain skill and technique. So always go to a reputable, trusted salon for lash extensions to avoid damage to your natural lashes.

Our trained, professional lash techs work with you to understand how you want the final results to look. You can choose any length, thickness, and curl you’d like! The technician will cleanse your lashes thoroughly to remove any dirt, oil, or makeup residue. After that, they will place a gel pad under your eyes to protect your lower lashes and to keep your eyes closed throughout the process. Each lash extension is applied by isolating a single natural lash that the extension will be attached to. The false lash is placed on your natural lash with a medical-grade adhesive. The process usually takes around one to two hours depending on the speed of your artists and the amount of natural hair you have.

Preparing For Your Lash Appointment

Many people feel more confident and glamorous with lash extensions. Having long and full lashes can make you feel more put-together and enhance your overall appearance.

Before you come in for your lash extensions or a fill, here are a few things to remember to help you prepare for your appointment.

Arrive Makeup-Free: Skip the mascara, concealer, makeup, and eye cream around the eye area on the day of your lash appointment. You can use a gentle, oil-free cleanser to clean your lashes. Also, if you wear contact lenses, remove them before your appointment. This will help prevent any irritation or discomfort during the application process.

Come Cozy: You will need to lie down for the application process, so wear comfortable clothing that allows you to relax and remain still. Avoid wearing clothing that could interfere with the application process, such as tight-fitting tops or dresses.

Photo Inspiration: If you’re unsure of the final look you want, bring photos of extension looks you like. This will help ensure that you get the look you want and that the extensions suit your eye shape and natural lashes.

Plan For Enough Time: Eyelash extension appointments can take up to two hours, so plan your schedule accordingly. Avoid scheduling other appointments or events immediately after your lash extension appointment to ensure you have enough time for the application process and any necessary touch-ups.

How to Care For Your Lash Extensions?

Your lash extensions can last up to a month, depending on the growth cycle of your natural lashes. Your natural lashes go through a growth cycle of around six to eight weeks, after which they naturally fall out, taking the attached eyelash extension with them. Therefore, to maintain your eyelash extensions, you should get touch-ups every two to three weeks to replace any fallen lashes and keep your extensions looking full and natural.

Here are some tips for caring for your eyelash extensions:

  • Avoid getting your extensions wet for 24 hours after application to allow the adhesive to bond fully.
  • Don’t rub or pull on your eyelash extensions, as this can damage your natural lashes.
  • Avoid using oil-based products around your eyes, as they can break down the adhesive and cause the extensions to fall out.
  • Use a lash brush to comb through your extensions gently.
  • Don’t use a mechanical eyelash curler, as it can damage your natural lashes and extensions.

Are There Any Risks?

Sometimes, lash extensions can damage your natural lashes if not applied or maintained correctly. For instance, if the technician uses lashes that are too heavy or long for your natural lashes, it can cause your natural lashes to break or fall out. Therefore, choosing a reputable and experienced lash technician who uses high-quality materials and follows proper hygiene practices to minimize any risks associated with lash extensions is essential.
