What are Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash extensions are individual strands of faux lashes expertly
attached to each natural eyelash with a special medical grade adhesive.
They are applied to the eyelashes themselves and never in direct contact
with your skin.
The Lash Loft specializes in "Natural" and "Glamour" looks with various lash extension set application options available - "Classic", "Premium" & "Volume". Everything from naturally under-stated to extreme glamour is possible – all up to you.
We only use the highest quality faux lashes available
on the market today. They range in thickness, curl shape, curl length and durability.
We are proud to say that we have some of the most talented technicians in New York City and beyond on staff. They are all fully licensed estheticians and do some really incredible work.
The procedure can take anywhere from 30 minutes for a refill to 90 minutes for a full set depending on client desire.
The procedure is completely safe and non-intrusive – the lashes are applied to each individual eyelash and never in contact with the skin. Simply lay down in one of our comfortable beds and relax – listen to music, a book, or just nap (most popular!).
If cared for properly, eyelash extensions can last up to 4 to 6 weeks. We will provide you with the simple instructions you need. There are natural products that we believe in and recommend as well to help keep your natural lashes healthy and strong.
Your natural lashes typically grow out and turn over every 45 to 60 days on average. We recommend coming in every 2 to 3 weeks for maintenance – similar to getting your nails done.
Mascara is not required… However, it may be worn. It MUST only be water based mascara. DO NOT USE OIL-BASED OR WATER-PROOF MASCARA. Waterproof mascara or any type of oil based mascara can dissolve the bonding agent and shorten the life of your eyelash extensions causing them to fall sooner. Care also needs to be taken in washing off the mascara. Only use a water based eye makeup remover.
The adhesive is waterproof and allows you to shower, swim, exercise etc. We do recommend however that you do not wash your eye area for about 12- 24 hours after the eyelash application. Special care is required but overall maintenance is low.
You will not feel that you are wearing them and nobody will be able to tell that they are not naturally your own - unless of course you want them to.
Be gentle with your lashes. No touching, rubbing, water, sweat, or steam for 24 hours.
Avoid running water directly on your lashes.
Avoid oily products (including some sunscreen products) on or near your lashes.
If you insist on mascara, only use water based mascara and apply it middle to tip avoiding root area.
Use water based eye makeup remover only!
Do not perm or curl your lashes.
Avoid sleeping on your new eyelashes.
Do not pull on your lashes (this may cause your natural lashes to come out prematurely) – If you want them removed, please come back. A special removal agent is used that will protect your natural lashes.
Maintain extensions with regular touch up appointments.
