Eyelash Extension Courses

There are three types of eyelash extensions: synthetic, silk and mink.
Lengths range from 6mm to 18mm, and varying thicknesses, which you learn when training for lash extensions.
The lashes are applied one at a time using a medical grade semi-permanent glue that will not irritate the eye nor damage the natural lash.
However, since allergic reactions are possible, there are sensitive low odour lash extension adhesives available.

How long does it take to apply lash extensions?
Applying a full set of lashes takes up to two hours, and can be maintained with infills, recommended
every three to four weeks.
A half set of lashes are possible to be applied as a filler to thicken natural lashes, or applied outward from the eye for a ‘flicked’ look.

Everyone has different lashes, and depending on the condition of your own natural lashes,
lash technicians can only go a certain length or thickness.
If your natural lashes are on the shorter, thinner side, you are best having lighter lashes applied and not too long.

What happens if glue gets in your eyes?
Since your eyes are shut the whole time lash extensions are being applied, no glue will ever get into your eye.
To avoid any irritation, however, the first safety precaution you can take is to be sure that the glue is safe for your eyes and doesn’t create an allergic reaction, a patch test will be required and you will learn this on your lash extension training course.
It’s important to understand the difference between an allergic reaction and an infection.
A properly trained and  experienced eyelash extensions technician will not let an infection occur,
but if you’re allergic to the glue, you’re still going to be allergic — this doesn’t mean the glue is harmful and again contra indications and aftercare are all covered on our eyelash extension courses.
