Eyelash extensions are a revolutionary new product that lengthens and thickens eyelashes without the mess of mascara.
Eyelash extensions are single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. They are applied to individual eyelashes, one lash at a time, for a natural, elegant and luscious look.
Eyelash extensions are perfect for special occasions as well as for every day wear. While they are not a permanent solution, eyelash extensions do provide temporary results.
Cost is a big factor when looking for eyelashes. Eyelash extensions cost far more than eyelash strips, and eyelash extensions must have regular maintenance.
You can be assured that the staff at Sparkles ‘R’ Us trained and are suitably qualified and professional when applying eyelash extensions.
The procedure requires patience and concentration so it shouldn’t be rushed. It will take approximately 1 1/2 hours for a full set, and about 45- 60 minutes for a half set. For a refill, it will take about 1 hour.
Can I still wear eye makeup?
Yes – but no mascara.
You can still use eyeliner and eye shadow, but always remember to remove with a product that does not contain oil of any kind, as this will affect the glue.
Can I curl or perm eyelash extensions?
You don’t need to perm your beautiful new eyelash extensions.
Do not use eyelash curlers on your eyelashes.
How long do they last?
Approximately 2-4 weeks if you respect your new lashes and take care of them.
I had eyelash extensions applied a few days ago and a few lashes have fallen out – why?
A real lash’s life cycle is around 25-28 days, and each day we can loose 3-5 natural lashes, which often they fall out unnoticed. It is hard to determine which lash is ready to fall out naturally so it is unpredictable when applying the synthetic lashes. As yours grow and fall out, so will the synthetic ones that are attached.
If you sleep on your stomach with your face in the pillow, or you favour sleeping on one side, you may notice that lashes don’t last as long as the other side.
When will I need refills?
Book your next eyelash refill at 2 ½ – a maximum of 4 week intervals in order to maintain your optimum eyelash effect.
Do eyelashes come in different lengths and thickness?
Lengths available are 5mm – 15mm. Lashes are available in black, different curls J,C,B and thickness..20mm and .25mm. The J Curl are the most popular and look the most natural.
What do I need to do to take care of my eyelash extensions?
Don’t get your eyelashes wet for 24 hours after your procedure. This will give the glue time to cure. You should also avoid steam rooms, saunas and swimming pools during that period.
After you shower you can gently dry & shape your eyelashes using your hair dryer on the lowest setting. Hold the dryer at least 20 centimetres below your face and gently coax the eyelashes with your index finger in an upward motion until they are dry.
Use cotton swabs to remove makeup by working gently around the eyelashes.
Do not use cleansers, makeup removers or moisturisers that contain oil or solvents on your eyes, as these will compromise the bonding agent used to adhere your eyelashes.
Do not rub your eyes. Instead, pat your eyes gently.
Be careful not to get your eyelashes caught on clothes when you’re dressing and undressing or towels when you’ve showered.
Never pull your eyelash extension off as it will pull out your natural eyelash. If you want them removed contact Sparkles ‘R’ Us for our professional eyelash removal service.
