LASH EXTENSIONS

Lash extensions are a manageable enhancement that cuts down on your daily beauty routine saving you time and money.  They are easy to maintain and can be customized to each client for a natural or glam look.  Extensions are semi-permanent and are made from single strands of synthetic silk or mink eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash.  They provide length and thickness to your own lashes and are available in varying lengths and thicknesses.  Each lash is applied one by one to your own natural eyelashes.  The result is thicker, longer, eye-opening lashes.

  • Max Lash Fill | $120 | 60 min

Time may have gotten away from you or you may need a little more time from your lash artist to ensure lashes are filled to the max.  Recommended 3-4 weeks after initial set or last fill.

  • Eyelash Extension Removal | $20 | 30 min

We always recommend that you have your lash extensions professionally removed to ensure safety to both you and your lashes.  We use a gel remover specific to lash adhesives to weaken the adhesive bond without breaking or causing damage to your natural lashes. 

**Please cleanse and brush your lashes before your fill. This will give us more time lashing and increase the retention of your new set; clean bonds = better retention.

LASH EXTENSION FAQ

  • What is the process of getting and maintaining eyelash extensions?
    • The application process is very relaxing – like receiving a spa service. You lie down on a spa table and have your eyes closed the entire time. We will apply one synthetic lash extension at a time to one of your natural lashes with medical grade adhesive. When your natural lash sheds, the extension will fall out with that lash. Your natural lash cycle as well as how well you care for  your lashes will affect how long the extensions will last. To maintain a full appearance, a refill is recommended every 2-3 weeks. 
  • Can I apply mascara to eyelash extensions?
    • Although it is not recommended, you can. However, it must only be a water based mascara (not waterproof). Do not use oil-based or water-proof mascara. To remove eye makeup and mascara - 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 is waterproof and allows you to shower, swim, exercise, etc. However, do not wash your eye area for the first 24 hours after each application. Additionally, heat from steam or water can loosen the adhesive bond allowing for the glue to become flexible and can cause sticking or release of extensions. Ensure you carefully cleanse and don't apply hot steam or water directly to eyes.
  • Can I use a lash serum with eyelash extensions?
    • Yes, however you should decrease the amount of use to 3 times a week, maximum.  We sell a lash serum that you can purchase at the time of your appointment.
  • Can I use eyelash curlers with eyelash extensions?
    • We do not recommend using mechanical eyelash curlers on your eyelash extensions as these curlers will damage the extensions. 
  • What type of adhesive do you use?  Is the product FDA approved? Is it safe? 
    • The Loft only uses medical-grade adhesive to apply semi-permanent eyelash extensions. Derma-bond technology (used by physicians to bond skin together) is the base for the structure of the eyelash extension adhesive. It has been specially formulated to work on sensitive areas of the body, such as the eye, to reduce skin irritation. The FDA doesn't regulate eyelash extensions since the eyelash extensions are applied to the natural eyelashes and do not touch the skin. The application process is pain-free and relaxing that most clients fall asleep during the procedure.
      • ***We also offer a sensitive adhesive for our clients with delicate eye areas. The sensitive adhesive contains formulated Cyanoacrylate and no Carbon Black to reduce fumes and possible irritation. Allergic reaction are rare occurrences and are usually the result of incorrect eyelash extension application, seasonal allergen or improper at-home care.

LASH LIFT + TINT | $120 | 45 MIN

A lash lift is designed to create lift at the root of the lash to give the appearance of a more wide open, youthful eye. Lash lifts are perfect for those who are pleased with the length of their natural lashes but desire a semi-permanent curled lash look.  Results last an average of 6-8 weeks. This service includes a tint that gives your eyes definition without wearing mascara.

LASH LIFT + SEMI-PERMANENT MASCARA | $130 | 75 MIN

Semi-Permanent Mascara (SPM) is a medically approved, hypoallergenic, flexible lash coating with a similar effect to that of mascara, with the staying power unlike any other. This innovative product and treatment can be applied to both upper and lower lashes with a durable coating allowing for smudge-proof and waterproof wear that can last 2-4 weeks.

AFTERCARE

LASH EXTENSION AFTERCARE

  • After your appointment, do not wet your eyelashes for 24 hours.  This will give the glue an appropriate amount of time to cure.  You should also avoid steam rooms/saunas, excessive sweating and swimming during this period.
  • Do not use cleansers, makeup removers or moisturizers that contain oil or solvents on your lashes.  Oil will weaken the adhesive bond and cause lash extensions to fall off prematurely. 
  • Take special care around the eye area when cleansing your face.  Avoid any type of oil-based product around your eyes (eye creams, moisturizers, masks, etc).  Again, the oils will break down the adhesive bond.
  • Do not rub your eyes, instead you should get used to patting your eyes gently.  This is better for your lashes and the sensitive skin around your eyes.
  • Brush your lash extensions several times a day, this will keep them clean and untangled.
  • Never pull your eyelash extension off as it can pull out your natural eyelash.  If you want them removed, please make an appointment.
  • Do not perm, curl or tint your eyelash extensions.

LASH LIFT AFTERCARE

  • There is no "downtime" to this service.  We use a keratin treatment that we recommend you leave on your lashes for up to 4 hours.  There is no negative to taking it off early, just positive effects for keeping it on. 
  • If you are able to avoid hot water/steam for 24 hours, that would be best.  Hot water doesn't affect everyone's lashes in the same way, but its better safe than sorry.

SEMI-PERMANENT MASCARA AFTERCARE

  • Avoid water (hot or otherwise) and steam for 48 hours.
  • Day 3 onward:  Please refrain from all attempts to rub the eye or lashes
  • Do not used oil based products on or near the eyes i.e. moisturizers, eye serums, lash conditioners and makeup removers
  • Do not attempt to pick off your SPM - let your therapist safely and gently remove the coating before your next application is applied
