#1 Eyelash extensions hurt – FALSE. Take it from someone who has had them on and off for years. Nothing about the process physically hurts when done correctly. Once applied, you won’t feel them. You might feel some anxiety about having tweezers so close to your eyes– but trust your stylist! They are licensed and trained for your safety. So lay back, relax, and take a lash nap!
#2 You can’t wash your eyes with eyelash extensions – FALSE. Not only can you wash your eyes, we recommend that you do! As long as you use an oil free cleanser! We recommend Xtreme Lashes® Eye Makeup Remover & Facial Cleanser, which is ideal for all skin types, even sensitive skin.
#3 Your eyelashes will fall out – FALSE. Your eyelashes shed naturally just like the hair on your head. You can shed up to 4 lashes per day per eye. Because your natural lashes are small and fine, it is not as noticeable. When you have eyelash extensions, you notice these lashes more. So don’t freak out! It’s completely normal.
#4 Lash extensions will look really fake – TRUE&FALSE. Eyelash extensions can look as glamorous or as natural as you’d like. With Xtreme Lashes® we can customize your extensions! Within reason of course, depending on how long and thick your natural lashes are. We will only apply lashes that your natural lashes can support without jeopardizing the integrity of your natural lash.
