What are eyelash extensions?
Not to be confused with the self-stick strip falsies or individual clusters of lashes knotted together( 3 or 4 lashes fan out from the bottom, and unnatural looking, they are a single-event accessory. Lash extensions are individual strands of synthetic lashes that are curved to replicate your natural lashes. These semi-permanent, synthetic extensions made from silk, mink or polyester are glued one by one onto the natural lash 1 mm away from the skin, by using a glue specially formulated for lash extensions and last 2-4 weeks. Eyelash extensions is the new hype and added beauty service in Canada and United States. Single synthetic eyelashes are applied to your own natural eyelash to achieve a beautiful full luscious and long set of lashes that are natural and you won’t even know they are there.
Should I be careful who applies the eyelash extensions and should they be trained?
Absolutely, we cannot stress the importance of choosing an eyelash technician who has been taught by a qualified and experienced Pure Lash trainer/instructor. Many people claim to have been trained but in fact only taught themselves by watching videos online. These people also use cheap and low quality products not meant for eyelash extension use, so the whole procedure is doomed from the start. It is therefore very important to choose an eyelash technician that is really qualified and experienced.

How are lash extensions applied?
A single natural eyelash is isolated and a synthetic lash is glued to the top of your own natural eyelash approximately 1mm from the eyelid so neither the glue or the lash has contact with the skin. The process involves attaching single strands of high quality synthetic eyelashes, one by one, onto your own natural lashes 1mm away from the eyelid so neither glue or lash contact the skin to mimic, enhance, and “extend” your own natural lashes. A variety of extensions are applied to add volume, length and curl.
How long does the application take?
The procedure will take approximately 1.5 hours for a full set and approximately 1 hour for partial set and 40 min for a fill. It is a meticulous procedure that requires patience and concentration. You relax with your eyes closed and there is no pain as this is a non-invasive procedure. Often clients are so relaxed they fall asleep.
Can I do eyelash extensions myself?
No. Eyelash extensions can only be applied by a trained Pure Lash professional.
How are the lower lashes held down?
Natural lashes are held down by anti wrinkle coQ10 eye pads specifically designed for eyelash extensions. This also gives an instant eye lift while getting your procedure done. Surgical tape is only used if there is any natural lash that needs to be taped down.
Do eyelash extensions make my own lashes fall out?
If you have had lash extensions applied elsewhere and you notice your lash extensions are coming out in clumps of two or more, please know this is not normal and that you will have bald spots in your lash line as each clump of lashes finally sheds. Lashes should shed naturally, one at a time, and not in clumps. Pure Lash technicians only use the single extension method where it is only one lash placed at a time on the eyelash. No cluster lashes are applied. Those using the method of cluster lashes should be aware of the potential damage this can cause to the natural lash. The heaviness will cause stress to your natural hair follicle and damage it to the point your lashes may not grow back. One lash at a time is the safest method and correct technique. Pure Lash technicians have rigorous training and are well instructed on how to apply extensions lash by lash, the PROPER way! Care and maintenance products are key ingredients to maintaining healthy lashes throughout the whole length of wearing eyelash extensions whether its 5 months or 5 years.
Can I still wear eye makeup?

No more eye makeup running and streaking which is fantastic for brides on their special day and also on their honeymoon!

Can I curl or perm eyelash extensions?
No, do not perm your beautiful new eyelash extensions. Anyway you won’t have to as the extension lashes have a beautiful curl to begin with. Using a clamp eyelash curler is not recommended and will lessen the life of your eyelash extensions and perhaps damage them. You can however use Pure Lash heated eyelash curler it when necessary. This will gently give extensions the ‘extra lift’
How long do lash extensions last?
Approximately 2-4 weeks if you respect your new lashes and take care of them. Remember this is a semi-permanent beauty procedure. Do not be misled by those who promise “permanent” extensions or attachments that last for 2+ months. A real lash’s life cycle is around 25-28 days, and as yours grow and fall out, so will the synthetic ones that are attached. If your hair and nails grow quickly then that may indicate that your lashes also are growing, shedding and renewing themselves quickly so you may find that your lashes will not last as long as someone whose hair growth is slow. Your life style and what work you do will also make a difference how long they last. Your eyelash extensions will become sparse over time, and in-fills are required to replace the extensions that have fallen off. This is a natural process.
I had eyelash extensions applied a few days ago and a few lashes have fallen out – why?
As explained above the lash has a growth cycle. Most of the time lash extensions fall out unnoticed unless they fall into your eye, but when eyelash extensions are applied we are more aware of when they shed as we know the extensions are there plus they are longer, darker and thicker. If you sleep on your stomach with your face squashed into the pillow or you favor sleeping on one side you may notice the lashes may not last as well as the other side. Steam and oily products also place a big factor of eyelash extensions prematurely falling out.
What are in-fills, why do I need them and how often do I need them?
In-fills are when the natural eyelash has fallen out (due to the eyelash cycle) and there has been an extension lash applied to it. You will require in-fills every 2-4 weeks if you would like to achieve a constistantly full fresh set of lashes. Please note that Pure Lash technicians do not stack (place one extension on another extension) lash extensions as other operators do as this is incorrect procedure.
Can I open my eyes during the procedure?
Only if necessary. But please advise your technician before you open your eyes as two sharp tweezers are used when applying the lashes.
Does it hurt?
No it is extremely relaxing with most clients falling asleep while having the lashes applied. No, the proper application of eyelash extensions does not hurt, the treatment is extremely relaxing with most clients falling asleep while having the eyelashes applied
Do the synthetic eyelashes come in different lengths and thickness?

Lengths available are 8mm – 15mm, in black and coloured lashes in purple, hot pink, midnight blue, autumn red and green used as highlight amongst the black lashes in “J” curl. Now available and extremely popular with Pure Lash clients are the thicker .20mm and on occasion: .25mm thick lashes. The Pure Lash technician also uses “Luna curl” and “Extreme Lash” lashes. Lashes are artfully placed along the lash line. During the application a mixture of lengths and thicknesses are used shorter lashes are used inner part of the eye, and longer lashes are used in the middle and ends. The Pure Lash technician is trained to apply lashes according to the clients request and to what suits each individual eye shape. If you have a specific request or look please discuss this with your eyelash extension technician on the day of your appointment.
Do I have to get a full set of eyelash extensions?
No, partial sets are also now available. Partial set is done on the upper lashes with lashes being scattered along the entire upper lash line from the inner eye to the outer edge. Allow approximately 45 minutes to one hour for a partial set. Partial sets are suited to people who have naturally thick and dark lashes. They can also be applied at the ends only if preferred. Full applications will make eyelashes look even fuller.
Are the eyelash extensions glued to my skin?

Are eyelash extensions suitable for everyone?
Anyone of any age can have eyelash extensions applied as long as there is a natural healthy lash to glue the extension onto.

Those who have gone eye laser treatment are required to wait at least 6 months before being able to apply lash extensions.
