A full set will last as long as your natural lash cycle, which is anywhere from 4-6 weeks, depending on the individual. Fills are available every 3-4 weeks.

How long does it take to apply them?

A full set of full classic lashes will take 90 minutes to apply. If you're interested in a volume set, allow 90-120 minutes. Plan on 60-75 minutes for fills. We like to remove any grown out lashes, clean them up, and make your lashes look like brand new every time you come in, this will ensure the retention and life of your extensions. 

Is it ok to wear make up over my new lashes?

YES! Please note, we don't recommend wearing any mascara that isn't extension safe or oil based products, as it will shorten the life of your lash extensions.

Will the last extensions damage my natural lashes?

Not when applied properly.  Our lash artists are all experienced and certified. 

How do I care for them?

Do not get your lash extensions wet for the first 24-48 hours.  Please avoid steam, tears, showering, swimming and eye make up remover. 

If you need to, brush your lashes straight, but NEVER when wet. Don't use any oil-based products on your new lash set.  Control your urge to touch, play with or pick at the lash extensions. 

Do NOT use an eyelash curler on them.

waxing.

How long does the hair have to be before I can be successfully waxed?

edit.'s  licensed estheticians prefer hair at 1/4 inch or longer, which is approximately 2-4 weeks worth of hair growth. 

Before waxing...

Avoid tanning 24 hours before your wax appointment. Wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing on your first visit. This will prevent any irritation to the recently waxed area. Some clients like to take a pain reliever 30 minutes before their appointment to make the service more comfortable.

After waxing...

Avoid tanning, exercising and scented loations for 12 hours after being waxed. 

Use exfoliants 24 hours after your waxing and often thereafter. This will help the newer skin breath. Shedding of the outer layer unclogs pores, keeps your skin clean and allows your hair to grow naturally.

Waxing isn't for everyone. Here are our basic rules for waxing:

  • You must be 11 years or older

  • We won't do the procedure if you have recently been sunburned or plan on being in the sun or tanning booth within 24 hours of the service.

  • Don't get waxed if you've recently had a chemical peel, dermabrasion, microdermabrasion or cosmetic injections.

  • We cannot wax you if you are currently taking acne medication such as: Accutane, Retin-A or any other prescribed acne medication.

chemical peels.

What is a chemical peel?

We use an exfoliating solution such as an AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) or TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid) to remove damaged or aged layers of skin in order to reveal the softer, more youthful skin residing underneath.

How is a peel performed?

edit.'s  licensed estheticians will prepare your skin either with skin care treatments or with a microdermabrasion substance first. Then they will clean your skin and use a mild toner to remove any oils before gently applying layers of a solution to peel away the aged surface skin. After which they will remove the peel solution and apply a comforting cream.

What's the recovery time?

It all depends upon the type of peel you select. Chemical peels leave your skin feeling tight or sunburned, so there is little to no recovery time needed.  It is important that you cleanse, moisturize and use sunscreen on the area. Avoid sun exposure during the early healing period. Do NOT peel off any loose skin. Allow the skin do exfoliate on its own.

Use exfoliants 24 hours after your waxing and often thereafter. This will help the newer skin breathe. Shedding of the outer layer unclogs pores, keeps your skin clean and allows your hair to grow naturally.

What results should I expect?

The results of a chemical peel vary depending on the peel that you receive. A superficial peel slightly reduces the signs of aging and skin damage. Medium peels are more effective in reducing signs of sun damage and fine wrinkles helping with the appearance of aging skin.

How long will the results last?

If you avoid the sun and bed tanning, the results can last months to years depending upon the depth of the peel. Generally the deeper peels have a more long-lasting effect.

How many peels will I need

Superficial peels are usually done several times over the course of many months. Regardless of the technique, you will likely need repeat treatments.
