Lash extensions are another service we offer here at Beauty Bar. From classic to volume, even hybrids! But what does that all mean? How long do they last? What is the maintenance? Lash artist, Lauren, sat down to answer all the questions for us.
Q: What is the difference between a fill and a full set of lashes?
A: Just like with nails, a full set would be the initial application of lash extensions. A fill would be to fill in lost or grown out lashes to keep them looking fresh and full.
Q: How long do they take?
A: We have our appointment times scheduled at 2.5 hours for a full set and 1.5 hours for a fill. It's the perfect time for lash nap!
Q: What's the difference between the style of lashes?
A: We offer three type of lash extensions. Classic, Hybrid, and Volume. Classic- 1:1 ratio between natural lash and lash extension, its the most natural looking of the three and will be as full as your natural lash allows. Volume: Uses extensions known as fans to create a fuller look. Fans are created with multiple classic lashes bonded at the base to give the appearance of more lashes. Hybrid: A mix between classic and volume lashes being used alternating to create a look that is fuller than classic but lighter than a full volume set.
Q: How much do they cost?
A: Classic set: $130 full, $60+ fill
Hybrid set: $140 full, $70+ fill
Volume set: $150 full, $80+ fill
Q: How long between appointments should I schedule?
A: Anywhere between 2-3 weeks is recommended. Any longer than that and you pose a risk of needing a new full set.
Q: What's the aftercare?
A: We offer an approved lash cleanser, that should be used daily to care for your lash extensions, for purchase. Also you should brush your lashes daily with a lash spool to keep them looking full and not clumpy.
Q: Can I wear eye makeup?
A: Yes! However you must cleanse your eye lids and lashes every night to keep from getting bacteria growing in your lashes, yes that's gross🤢 . Also no mascara (really there's no need!).
Q: Can I get them wet?
A: Yes, getting them wet is ok. We don't suggest full underwater swimming but it is ok if they get wet from splashing.
Q: What if I have more questions?
A: Visit our lash artists insta pages! They love getting new followers and can answers any questions you have through their DMs.
