FAQ

  • WILL LASH EXTENSIONS DAMAGE MY NATURAL LASHES?
    Absolutely not! When applied properly, with perfect isolation and weight eyelash extensions will not harm your natural lashes. Our lash artist are all experienced and certified, the most important thing to them is the integrity of your natural lash. During your initial consultation they will evaluate your natural lashes to ensure you get the lashes that work best for your natural lashes so that you will never have damage or breakage! At Angels LA Lashes, we take special care to ensure that our lash extensions are all applied individually and correctly to maintain your eyelash health. To ensure the long-term health of your lashes, we highly recommend that you take the advice of your lash stylist regarding the maximum thickness and length that your lashes can safely hold. As long as an extension of the appropriate/safe length and thickness has been applied, your natural lashes will continue to grow through a normal lash cycle. Please listen to your lash stylist’s advice about how long/heavy you should go, especially if you have naturally thin or sparse lashes. Don’t try to remove the eyelash extensions yourself – this could easily damage your natural lashes, as the adhesive bond is extremely strong. Sometimes clients choose not to take our advice regarding the lashes and do request extra long and thick lashes be applied to their thin or fine natural lashes. We strongly advise against this, as we cannot guarantee that they will last well if they are too long or heavy for your natural lash to support.
  • WHAT ARE THEY MADE OF?
    Our lashes are made of premium cruelty-free Korean PBT fiber silk/faux mink eyelashes.
  • WHAT SHOULD I DO BEFORE MY LASH APPOINTMENT?
    The main thing is to have clean eyes and eyelashes, free of makeup – especially mascara. Some mascaras contain oils that can prevent eyelash extensions bonding correctly. Be sure to use an oil-free makeup remover if removing makeup, and don’t use any oil or petroleum based products on or around the eye area for 48 hours prior (such as Vaseline or moisturizers). Do not have your eyelashes permed – it is very difficult for us to apply extensions on lashes which have been permed within the last 2-3 months, as often the extensions will not bond correctly. If you have had a more gentle lash lift which has dropped, that should be ok.
  • HOW LONG DO THEY USUALLY LAST?
    A full set will last as long as your natural lash cycle, which is anywhere from 4-6 weeks, depending on the individual. We recommend getting a fill anywhere between 2 and 3 weeks.
  • CAN I WEAR EYE MAKEUP WITH MY EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
    Yes, you can – as long as it oil-free and very low in glycol/glycerin. These ingredients attack the glue, loosening the lash bond and causing extensions to fall. We’d recommend: Liquid/pen liner (oil-free, of course) – gel liner tends to stick in the roots of the lashes and is tough to remove. We stock great, tested products here Powder-type eyeshadows are fine – check the ingredients list of liquid/stick eyeshadow for glycol and glycerin, as sometimes these products are snuck in! To avoid using mascara if possible – this product causes the extensions to clump together, and often contains oils to weaken the glue bond on your lashes. Especially waterproof mascara! If you are intent on wearing mascara, Lash Lady stocks Max2 Volume Up mascara made specifically for use on eyelash extensions. To get the best out of your extensions and mascara, just apply the product to the very tips of your lashes and avoid the roots. PLEASE DON’T use mascara on volume or hybrid lashes – regardless of which brand you use, mascara makes volume fans snap shut. This means your lashes will look clumpy and stick together. We will not be able to infill volume lashes that have had mascara applied to them.
  • ARE EYELASH EXTENSIONS SAFE WHEN PREGNANT?
    Generally speaking, eyelash extensions are a safe and non-invasive cosmetic procedure. Lady Lash uses a high-quality, low-fume adhesive that is manufactured specifically for cosmetic use near the eye, and the adhesive is applied to your lash hairs rather than your skin. Allergic reactions to the adhesive are very rare and can be easily treated if they manifest. In saying this, if you are pregnant and have never had eyelash extensions before or have never been to Lady Lash and used our glue products, we strongly recommend a patch test out before your treatment. This patch test must be completed at least 48 hours prior to the booking. Why do we need to patch test before proceeding? Firstly, the lash extension procedure requires you to lay flat on your back for over one hour; a position that is not recommended for women in the advanced stages of pregnancy. It also requires that you lie quite still – which can be hard if you’re heavily pregnant! The patch test gives you a chance to see what it’s like lying in that position for a short time, so that you can gauge how well your body will respond to a prolonged appointment Secondly, if you are unlucky enough to have an allergic reaction your doctor may not be able to give you the required treatment due to your pregnancy. So we highly recommend a patch test first before proceeding. Please note: if we have been doing your lashes here at Lady Lash and you become pregnant, there’s no problem continuing with the extensions – just let us know so that we can make sure you are comfortable at all times! You’d already be familiar with all of our products and glue, so reactions are far less likely to manifest.
  • CAN YOU BE ALLERGIC TO EYELASH EXTENSIONS ADHESIVE?
    Like all cosmetic products, there are some individuals who may be allergic to this particular adhesive. However, allergic reactions are extremely rare however and usually subside quickly once the extensions are removed. If you have had an allergic reaction to any eyelash extensions (swollen, red, puffy eyelids and under eye area) we cannot ethically apply any lashes in the future – this means it would be highly likely you will be allergic again and subsequent reactions can be worse. If you do have an allergic reaction, you must seek medical attention prior to making an appointment to remove the extensions. We cannot give out medical advice, however from our experience some doctors will recommend not removing the extensions immediately as this can cause further irritation due to the solvents used. If you have had an allergic reaction from another salon and wish to have your lashes removed, we can only make an appointment if we have a doctor’s certificate recommending immediate removal. In all other cases, it would be best to contact the salon that you originally booked at.
