1. What are eyelash extensions?

Eyelash extensions are synthetic or natural fibers that are applied to your natural lashes using a semi-permanent adhesive. They can enhance the length, thickness, and curl of your lashes, giving you a fuller and more glamorous look.

2. How long do eyelash extensions last?

The lifespan of eyelash extensions varies from person to person. On average, they can last anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks with proper care and maintenance. It's important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your technician to ensure the longevity of your extensions.

3. Can I wear makeup with eyelash extensions?

4. How often should I get eyelash extensions refilled?
