But first, let's break some common misconceptions... 

Myth #1: Eyelash Extensions are harmful to your natural lashes

Fact: In order to get eyelash extensions, we need you to have a foundation of strong and healthy lashes so they can support the small extra weight. Remember, they are applied one by one by our experienced professionals.

Myth #2: They do not last for more than a week.

Fact: Depending on how much care you give them, they could last up to 3 weeks. Touch-ups are also encouraged every 2-4 weeks so they can always look full and natural.

Myth #3: You cannot remove your Eyelash Extensions without Ripping out your real ones.

Fact: We professionally remove them for you. There is no need to experiment at home.

Myth #4: You can't swim or get in the water with Eyelash Extensions.

Fact: Yes, you can! Our service is 100% waterproof. However, we encourage them to wait a few days without exposure to saunas or swimming pools.

Myth #5: You don't need to care for your Eyelash Extensions.

Fact: Taking care of your Eyelash Extensions will make them last longer than expected! Simply avoid excessive rubbing, waterproof mascaras (or mascaras at all), and oil-based cleansers. Instead, we recommend water-based makeup removers.
