About Eyelash Extensions
Eyelash extensions add thickness and length to your natural lashes. We customize your lash extensions according to your desired look, condition of your natural lashes and number of natural lashes to provide you with eyelash enhancements that are safe and not damaging to your natural lashes.
We have lash services to fit every budget. Our Junior Artists are trained in Classic lashes first. From there, they are continually learning new advanced skills in classic lashing and start volume lash training. When they are able to apply each new skill they learn, it is added to their service menu. Once they complete all styles in the Junior level, they move up to our Advanced level artist. They have demonstrated skills to apply lashes safely and are building their speed and continuing to learn new techniques to advance their skills. Our Master Lash Artist and owner, Jordan, ensures that our artists are trained with the newest techniques in lash extension application for a flawless result.
Say Bye Bye to Mascara and hello to beautiful lashes!
1. WHAT ARE SEMI-PERMANENT EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
They are individual extensions made of a synthetic material to look like perfect natural eyelashes; thicker at the base and thinner at the tip with a slight curl. They come in many different colors; the most popular is Solid Black. They are adhered one by one to a natural lash with a medical-grade bonding adhesive giving the appearance of a darker, more voluptuous lash-line.
2. HOW LONG SO SEMI-PERMANENT EYELASH EXTENSIONS LAST?
An average eyelid has approximately 100 natural hairs which shed at an average rate of 20-30% every 2 weeks. Therefore, when the natural hair sheds, so does the extension that was attached to it. Since new hairs are always growing in, refills can be performed to attach extensions to the new growth keeping the lashes looking full continuously or for as long as you wish to maintain them.
3. HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED TO GET A REFILL?
On average, refills are recommended every 2-3 weeks to keep the lashes looking their best. With proper maintenance semi-permanent eyelash extensions can be kept up indefinitely through regular refills.
4. CAN EYELASH EXTENSIONS BE APPLIED ON ANYONE?
Anyone with an eyelash to attach to can receive eyelash extensions. However, if you have any of the following conditions we advise you to schedule a free consultation with a Lash Lounge stylist prior to scheduling a full set to best determine if lashes are right for you.
Extremely sensitive eyes or skin
Eye infection of any kind
Allergy to cyanoacrylate (this is used in acrylic nails and most adhesives of any kind)
5. WILL THE EYELASH EXTENSIONS DAMAGE MY NATURAL LASHES?
Our application technique and premium products will not damage your natural lashes. It is imperative to the health of your lashes to have each natural hair isolated when an extension is adhered to it and ensure proper separation so that the hairs can continue to grow and shed as they would naturally. We only use formaldehyde-free, medical-grade adhesives which are made exclusively for lash extensions and offer a more sensitive adhesive for our guests who are more prone to allergic reactions. This combination of our top quality adhesive and individual lash attachment will sustain the health and integrity of the natural hairs indefinitely.
6. WHAT KIND OF EYELASH EXTENSIONS DOES VIVIFY USE AND WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SILK & MINK?
All Vivify lashes are made of a sterilized, top-quality synthetic material and are custom manufactured exclusively for our salon using a double-heat roll process to provide the longest-lasting curl available. We use 3 curls and 5 diameters of lash extensions to ensure a custom and seamless look with your natural lashes. Our premium synthetic mink lashes are lightweight and customized to what your natural lash can safely support.
7. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CLASSIC AND VOLUME EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
Classic Lash extensions a lash application where the attachment of 1 extension is applied to 1 natural eyelash. The result is an enhanced lash line, yet very natural and realistic in appearance. Multi-Volume Plus lash extensions are our premium volume lash application where we apply 2 or more of our lightest lash extensions to 1 natural eyelash. Our MVP lashes offer incredible fullness and last longer than our classic lash application while still providing an enhanced natural appearance.
Our Flirty Look is a half and half mix of Classic and 2D (two lightweight extensions made into a fan and applied to each lash) for a slightly fuller look than classic, with a natural look.
Our Glam lashes are all 2D, and this is our entry level volume look. Two lightweight extensions made into a custom fan applied to each natural lash gives you double your natural lashes for a darker lash line and fuller look.
Our Diva Custom Russian Volume lashes are custom, handmade fan of 3-5 super lightweight extensions made on the spot for each natural lash. This is our most popular look. Russian volume is all about fullness, covering gaps in the lash line or sparse areas to give you a full, dark and glamorous look.
Our Hollywood Mega Volume sets are custom made fans of even lighter weight extensions containing 8-15 extensions per natural lash for a super dark and full look.
Our Volume Express lashes are a pre-made 5D fan. Pre-made fans are NOT custom made for each lash and are applied like a classic lash., with wearability and retention the same as a classic. They allow our Junior artists that are training in russian volume to provide a fuller look in the time of a classic set. They are good for those clients wanting a fuller look of volume, but cannot lay for time needed to have custom russian volume applied. They are a budget friendly way for a fuller look.
8. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A JUNIOR, ADVANCED AND MASTER STYLIST?
All Stylist levels are trained and certified on Vivify's proprietary lash application method and our complimentary services. As a Stylist advances in their skill level, they are trained on additional services offered at Vivify Salon as well as advanced level application methods. The different levels of Stylist are determined based on a variety of factors. Their skill-set, knowledge-base, application speed, quality, and tenure are a few of the factors that lead to Advanced and/or Master level promotions. Master Stylists are our top stylists and are the lead experts in the salon. Not only do they demonstrate a mastery level in lash application, but they also provide training and guidance in all aspects of the salon, from application to customer interactions.
9. WHAT DO EYELASH EXTENSIONS LOOK LIKE & HOW DO THEY FEEL?
Our eyelash extensions look and feel completely real as each application is customized to your eye shape, natural lash line, and desired look. We offer different curls, thicknesses, and lengths that are indistinguishable in weight to human lashes thereby providing a weightless feel to your lash line. Our experienced, professional lash stylists will choose a variety of extensions to create the most flattering, natural, and beautiful look for you.
10. CAN YOU DESCRIBE THE APPLICATION PROCESS?
The application process is very relaxing, just like receiving a spa service. You will lie back on a plush table and have your eyes closed the entire time. The application is very gentle and can be best described as though someone is gently brushing through your lashes. The service generally takes between 60 to 120 minutes to apply a full set and refills can be done in as little as 30 to 60 minutes. The procedure is so relaxing and comfortable that many clients fall asleep.
11. HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF THESE EYELASH EXTENSIONS ONCE THEY'RE ON?
It can take up to 8 hours for the eyelash extension adhesive to fully cure the bond between your natural lash and the extensions. Avoid swimming, spas, saunas and tanning on the day of your lash appointment. After the 8 hours, they are able to get wet. While sleeping, lashes can tangle or flip to the side. Brush through your lashes each morning with a clean mascara wand to reshape the extension and keep them fluffed into place. The overall upkeep is very minimal and very easy to manage.
12. WHAT SHOULD I DO PRIOR TO MY APPOINTMENT?
Remove all eye makeup and clean your natural lashes with an oil-free cleanser.
If you wear contact lens, we recommend removing them.
Avoid caffeine and any other stimulants that may cause your eyes to flutter involuntarily.
Refrain from curling or perming your natural lashes prior to receiving your full set.
13. CAN I HAVE MY EYELASH EXTENSIONS REMOVED?
Eyelash extensions can be easily removed by a Vivify Stylist using a special gel remover formulated to quickly dissolve the medical-grade adhesive and gently wipe away the lash extensions. The process is painless and will not harm your natural hairs – taking less than 30 minutes. Please do not attempt to remove lash extensions yourself as this can cause damage to your natural lashes.
14. WHAT HAPPENS IF I CANCEL MY APPOINTMENT?
If you need to cancel your appointment, we simply request that you do so at least 24 hours in advance. If you do not cancel within 24 hours of your appointment, you will be considered a no-show for that appointment and your card on file will be charged the full amount of the scheduled service. If you need to cancel during non-business hours, feel free to leave a message on the salon’s voicemail.
