Volume lashes are by request and have multiple very thin lashes applied in a group, in the shape of a fan, to a single natural lash.

How lash extensions applied?
A single one of your natural eyelashes is isolated, and a synthetic lash is adhered directly onto the natural lash, approximately 1mm from the eyelid, with a medical grade adhesive. This is so neither the glue or the lash has any contact with the skin.
Do eyelash extensions make my own lashes fall out or damage natural lashes?
No. For your safety and the protection of your eye, we ensure that the length and weight of the extensions we choose are compatible with your natural lash length and thickness. We believe first and foremost in protecting the integrity of your natural lashes and we will not apply lashes that you can not support. Keep in mind that everyone has constant natural lash shedding and your extension is meant to fall out connected to your real lash.
Can I wear mascara?
Mascara is not necessary but some clients choose to wear it. We carry extension safe mascaras and sealants in the studio. Mascara must be water based and we ask that it is removed before arriving to your fill appointment. You can wake up in the morning looking great with lashes that look like you’re wearing mascara 24/7! No more dealing with the clumping, streaking and smudging look. Fantastic for brides on their special day and great for vacations.
Is the eyelash adhesive and remover safe?
Because we specialize in eyelash extensions, we take great care to ensure that the adhesive and adhesive remover does not come in contact with the skin or eyes. Eyelash Republic only uses medical grade, high quality, fast drying adhesive. The formulation is formaldehyde and carbon black free, ingredients that can be culprits of eye irritation and allergic reactions. As with any esthetic service, please keep in mind that there is always a risk of an allergic reaction.
Can I still wear my regular eye makeup?
Yes, but you will likely find that you are using much less! Also, makeup and products must be oil-free because oil can dissolve the bond between the glue and the lashes. Makeup remover must also be oil-free. We recommend and carry a selection of makeup, (including mascara), and remover products made especially for extensions. Never wipe down towards the lashes when cleansing as this will cause a buildup of makeup on the lashes and may lessen your extension.
Can I use a curler on my eyelash extensions?
No, curling is not necessary. Even if your natural lash is straight, the extension will camouflage them and curl out. Using an eyelash curler is not recommended and will de-bond our adhesive.
How long do they last?
Although lashes can last up to 6 weeks, they look best when kept filled approximately every 2 to 3 weeks. This can take 45-60 minutes depending on how many lashes you typically shed and how full you want your lashes to look. It is best to arrive to this appointment without eye makeup on.
How should I prepare for my eyelash extension appointment?
Do not perm or curl your eyelashes before your eyelash extension appointment. Also, do not use oil based makeup removers or waterproof mascara within 48 hours of your appointment. Please arrive without eye makeup on, we always keep remover in our restrooms in case you are not able to have it removed prior to coming in.
