All You Need To Know About Lash Extensions
Russian Volume Lashes consist of applying multiple lash extensions to each natural eyelash in a fanned shape. Volume lashing means fuller lash extensions that are easier to maintain because of weight and flexibility. Russian Volume Lashes are NOT, cluster lashes, Y lashes or W lashes!! These are still individual and are applied to an individual eyelash. This technique requires a significant amount of skill compared to classic eyelash extensions. (Please be careful when picking a therapist!) Volume lashes can take up to 3 hours to apply depending on the look the client would like to achieve. When volume lashes are applied, they create a natural full look that a lot of clients describe as fluffy. Volume lashes last much longer before you need infills this is because there are more tiny lashes applied to one natural lash giving them a fuller look. Volume Lashes are known to last six to eight weeks before needing infills!!
Not to be confused with the self-stick strip falsies or individual clusters of lashes knotted together that are a single-event accessory, these semi-permanent, synthetic extensions are glued one by one onto the natural lash (not the skin) by using a specially formulated glue that last 2-4 weeks. Single synthetic eyelashes are applied to your own natural eyelash to achieve a beautiful full luscious and long set of lashes that are natural and you won’t even know they are there.
A single natural eyelash is isolated and a synthetic lash is glued to the top of your own natural eyelash approximately 1mm from the eyelid so neither the glue or the lash has contact with the skin.
The procedure will take approximately 1 hour for a full set and up to 1 hour for in-fills. It is a meticulous procedure that requires patience and concentration so therefore it should not be rushed so that clients can leave with a perfect set of lashes. You relax with your eyes closed and there is no pain as this is a non-invasive procedure. Often clients are so relaxed they fall asleep.
No. Eyelash extensions can only be applied by a trained professional How are the lower lashes held down? At The little beauty room it is important that our clients are comfortable therefore, we use soft under eye pads specifically designed for eyelash extensions. We never use surgical tape or lash tint papers which are uncomfortable for the client
No, definitely not this is a myth. It is important to have your lash extensions applied by a qualified operator who uses to quality product. The eyelashes have a cycle and are constantly being replaced like your hair.
Yes, but you won’t need mascara and you may even find you won’t need eyeliner, but you can still use eyeliner and eye shadows as usual but remember to remove with a product that does not contain oil of any kind as this will affect the glue. We recommend removing eyeliner and eyeshadow using a damp cotton bud and a small amount of eye make-up remover and gently running it along the eyeliner to remove it. To remove eyeshadow wet a cotton wipe and eye make-up remover and gently remove eye shadow in a side and upward movement not down onto the eyelash extensions. Wiping down towards the lashes will cause a build up of makeup on the lashes and may lessen the life of them.
You won’t have to. You can roll out of bed looking great and best of all it will make your lashes look like you’re wearing mascara 24/7 without the clumping, streaking and smudging look that you get with mascara. No more running and streaking mascara which is fantastic for brides on their special day. If desired you can wear a non-waterproof on the lower lashes but remember to use an eye makeup remover that contains no oil.
No, do not perm your beautiful new eyelash extensions. Anyway you won’t have to as the extension lashes hold their lovely shape. Using a clamp eyelash curler is not recommended and will lessen the life of your eyelash extensions and perhaps damage them.
Approximately 2-4 weeks if you respect your new lashes and take care of them. Remember this is a semi-permanent beauty procedure. Do not be duped by those who promise “permanent” extensions or attachments that last for 2+ months. A real lash’s life cycle is around 25-28 days, and as yours grows and fall out, so will the synthetic ones that are attached. If your hair and nails grow quickly then that may indicate that your lashes also are growing, shedding and renewing themselves quickly so you may find that your lashes will not last as long as someone whose hair growth is slow. Your life style and what work you do will also make a difference to how long they last. Eyelash extensions will not last for three months; this is false advertising by salons and inexperienced people.
As explained above the lash has a growth cycle and unfortunately it is hard to determine which lash is ready to fall out naturally so it is unpredictable when applying the synthetic lashes. Each day we can loose 3-5 natural lashes, but often they fall out unnoticed unless they fall into your eye, but when eyelash extensions are applied we are more aware of when they shed as we know the extensions are there plus they are longer, darker and thicker. If you sleep on your stomach with your face squashed into the pillow or you favour sleeping on one side you may notice the lashes may not last as well as the other side.
In-fills are when the natural eyelash has fallen out (due to the eyelash cycle) and there has been an extension lash applied to it. You will require in-fills every 2-4 weeks if you would like to achieve a consistently full fresh set of lashes. At The little beauty room we take the time to remove any eyelash extensions that have either grown out to far or are not sitting correctly. Please not that we do not stack the lash extensions as other operators do.For in-fill bookings allow approximately 1 hour.
Yes, although it is not advised but if you do need to please advise your technician before you open your eyes as two sharp tweezers are used when applying the lashes.
No, it is adhered approximately 1mm from the eyelid. HOWEVER, IF YOU HAVE AN EYE INFECTION OR HAVE RECENTLY UNDERGONE AN EYE OPERATION OR COSMETIC EYE SURGERY IT WOULD BE BEST TO WAIT UNTIL THE EYE AREA HAS COMPLETELY HEALED.

Avoiding proper hygiene can result in an eye infection whether wearing eyelash extensions or not. The golden rule for wearing eyelash extensions is the less you touch them the longer they will last. However, it is important to keep the eye area clean.
It is suggested that if you are an “eye rubber” due to allergies such as hay fever or if rubbing your eyes is just a habit or in the past you have experienced sensitivity around the eye area after using skin care or makeup or generally having sensitivity around that area the extensions may not suit you. If you use prescribed medicated eye drops or ointment this may coat the lashes and cause them to clump. Little Beauty room clients who say their eyes are sensitive but DO NOT experience any reaction or discomfort during or after having eyelash extensions applied. Eyelash extensions cannot be applied to very curly eyelashes as it will be difficult to glue an extension on. However, if you are unsure please contact the salon to discuss it.

Yes, it is fine to wear foundation, eyeliner and eyeshadow however your lower eyeliner maybe a little smudged from wearing the under eye anti wrinkle eye pads. A PATCH TEST IS REQUIRED
