BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT

Keeping our clients happy is our number one goal here at Empire Lash. In order to help ensure your lashes stay on for the longest period of time, it is highly recommended you wash your hair before your lash appointment.  This ensures your new lashes will stay out of  the water for at least 24 hours. Be sure to also remove any makeup or eyeliner you may have on. This ensures your lashes get a good bond, adding days and even weeks to your lash life.

 

AFTER CARE

The lash bond takes 24 hours to fully cure so it is important to avoid steam, sweating, and water during this time. Makeup remover, makeup, and facial products used around the eyes should be OIL FREE. Be gentle on them and avoid picking, pulling, and sleeping on your lashes. Be careful of high heat around your eyes such as from cooking and blow dryers. And as always, mascara and eyelash curlers are a Big no-no.

 

Clean your lashes every night regardless if you wore makeup that day. Dirt, oil, and debris can build up on your lash line so cleansing your lashes is important for maintaining the health of your natural lashes and lash extensions. Our Empire Lash Shampoo lash cleanser is tear free and gently cleanses in between each lash. Many of our clients have expressed how much longer their lashes last since using our cleanser!

 

HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO GET FILLS?

To maintain the life of your lashes it is recommended that classic and volume fills be done every 2-3 weeks . Clients should come in for a fill when 50% of their lash extensions have shed. Clients with less than 40% will be considered a full set.

 

WILL EYELASH EXTENSIONS RUIN MY NATURAL LASHES?

No, this is a common myth. Eyelash shedding is part of the natural eyelash life-cycle. The average person sheds between 2-5 lashes on each eye daily. That is why it is necessary to come back for fills every 2-3 weeks. If applied correctly eyelash extensions will not hurt your natural lashes or cause premature shedding. Empire will keep the integrity of your natural lashes. We will not apply lashes that are too heavy or long for your natural lashes to hold.

 

WHAT IS A LASH LIFT?

Lash Lifting is a technique where a Lash Artist will use a curling agent and conditioning solution to lift your natural lashes making them look longer and fuller. Lash Lifting services also include a Lash Lint to darken the lashes and enhance the lash line. If you are sensitive to Eyelash Extensions, Lash Lifts are a great alternative and requires less maintenance.

 

HOW LONG DO LASH LIFTS RESULTS LAST?

Lash Lifts last 8-12 weeks depending on the lash shedding cycle. The service only takes about 1 hour less than your average lash extensions.
