What are Eyelash Extensions?

Synthetic and/or Mink eyelash extensions are applied by carefully attaching one lash extension at a time to each of your individual lashes with a bonding agent. This process can take about 1-2 hours. The lashes will eventually fall out with your natural lash cycle, so it is not supposed to be damaging and also gives a natural look. Depending on your lash cycle, lash extensions should last about 4-6 weeks.


  • Lash cycles vary per person
  • I recommend going to a trained and certified specialist
  • Mink used was cruelty-free
  • Bonding used was fume-free and medical grade


  • First appointment, $225-$275 based on synthetic or mink fur lashes
  • Refills, $65-$85 based on synthetic or mink fur lashes

Maintenance & Recommendations 

This is definitely a major lifestyle change

  • Only oil-free products used around and on eyes (no more liquid liner!)
  • Avoid sleeping face down
  • No eye rubbing
  • Dry lashes only with paper towels to avoid towel fluff
  • Refills are recommended about every 2-5 weeks
  • Lash conditioner applied morning and night
  • When washing face, carefully splash water on eyes
  • Avoid steamy hot showers, steam rooms, saunas
  • Avoid facing shower head straight on



  • Beautiful long, curled, and full lashes
  • No mascara needed
  • No curling needed


  • Time Consuming, my first appointment took about 2 hours and refills take about 45 minutes
  • Expensive
  • After following all directions and recommendations, my lashes did some clumping
  • I felt that my lashes fell out faster than normal (probably due to the extra weight of the lash extensions?)
  • I ended up with some scary bald patches (pictures below)
