How to find a lash technician who apply safe Eyelash Extensions:

Has the eyelash technician a registered business and liability insurance?

Do your research: how long was her training, did she receive her certificate through an examination?

Recommendations – what do others say about the technician? Is she active on social media?

How much should Eyelash Extensions cost?

Another indicator to see if you can trust the Eyelash Extensions technician is through her pricing. Is she too cheap? Rent, quality material, taxes, insurance and also her wage need to be covered. A safely applied, full set of Classic Eyelash Extensions should sit at $100-150 and for hand made Volume

How long does it take to apply the Eyelash Extensions?

You may think the quicker the better. A full set lash extension should take at least 1,5 hours. To properly isolate and separate each lash, this just can’t be done any quicker. If they advertise a full lash extension in 30-45 minutes, they will either not even cover 25% of your lashes or they will glue your lashes together just sticking them on.

Have you had your lashes done but not sure they’re right?
Did you feel regret instantly that you just wanted to get them off?

Can you feel the Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash Extensions should feel less than when wearing mascara. If you can feel them they are probably not applied correctly.

Are the Eyelash Extensions itchy?

Are the Eyelash Extensions clumpy? Criss-crossing? Too much glue has been used.

How is the shape and length of the Eyelash Extensions?

The shape should be adapted according to your own eye shape.

Are the Eyelash Extensions too long in the inner and outer corners?

This will weigh them down and make the set look droopy and heavy.

Should Eyelash Extensions last a long time?

Lashes have a short life cycle, if you still have
more than 50% left after 6-8 weeks they are most likely stuck together
and your own lashes aren’t able to grow or let go.

Don’t worry, we can help you!
With over a decade of experience in eyelash extensions, we have seen everything.
Poor or non-existent training, a competitive market and a big demand
result in clients getting their eyelashes completely destroyed.
The market in Australia is completely unregulated and there’s no law
stopping anyone from purchasing the material and start performing “lash
extensions”, or even worse, train people in eyelash extensions.

This set of lashes has not been applied properly. The adhesive should not be visible on the lash and they have used pre glued volume fans, which would be too heavy for the natural lashes.

Does your Lash stylist go through your lashes and check for stickies?
Checking for stickies and separate each lash away from one another is crucial to allow your lashes to grow healthily and avoid damage.
If your lashes aren’t separated thoroughly they will cause irritation, itchiness and a heavy feeling.
Your lashes are all in various growth stages and each growth stage grow at different speeds. If two lashes are stuck together, the faster growing lash will pull the other one out and cause damage and inflammation to that follicle.
If you aren’t sure your lash stylist has applied your lashes correctly, come in for a free consultation and we will assess your extensions and let you know if they are applied safely for your natural lashes.
