The Truth About the Most Common Lash Extension Myths

From whether your natural lashes will be damaged to lash extensions are one size fits all, we’re sharing the truth about the most common lash extension myths on our blog today!

MYTH 1: Having lash extensions applied could hurt or feel uncomfortable.

TRUTH: The process of having lash extension applied does not hurt and should never cause discomfort if they are being applied by a trained lash stylist. Actually, the lash extension application process is a very relaxing experience and many clients enjoy a nap, or ‘lash naps’ as we like to call them. So if you have ever heard that having lash extensions applied can hurt or be uncomfortable, this is not true. No pain should ever be involved during lash extension applications. What is involved is a luxury, spa like experience to make you relax!


MYTH 2: Eyelash extensions could damage my natural lashes. 

TRUTH: When you combine premium products and trained lash stylists with proper application techniques, then your natural lashes should never be damaged. During the lash application process, it’s imperative to the health of your lashes to have each natural hair isolated when an extension is adhered to it and ensure proper separation so that the hairs can continue to grow and shed as they would naturally. At The Lash Lounge, we only use formaldehyde-free, medical-grade adhesives which are made exclusively for lash extensions. The combination of our top quality adhesive plus the individual lash attachment will sustain the health and integrity of your natural lash hairs indefinitely.


MYTH 3: My natural lashes will be shorter if/when I decide to have my extensions removed. 

TRUTH: When eyelash extensions are applied by a trained lash stylist, your natural lashes are allowed to grow as usual. Women without lash extensions usually apply and remove mascara every day. The application and slight pulling of lashes when applying mascara followed by the cleaning and rubbing of your eyes to remove the mascara can greatly damage your lashes. With a proper lash extension application, there will be no damage and your lashes should grow better than they would if you were applying, wearing and cleaning off mascara day to day. So the myth that your natural lashes could be shorter if you were to remove your extensions is not true.


MYTH 4: Eyelash extensions are one size fits all and my lashes will look just like my friend’s lashes after she got her lash extensions. 

TRUTH: All of us have different eye shapes as well as a different number of natural lashes. What does this mean? It means that lash extensions can be (and should be) customized just for YOU. It also means that your lash extensions may not look just like your friend’s lash extensions since you both have different eye shapes and different amounts of natural lashes. Here at The Lash Lounge, we specialize in safe and customized eyelash extensions. Using our custom-built mapping system, our stylists are trained to implement our exclusive techniques which tailors a perfect design for each individual’s unique eye shape, lifestyle and desired lash look.

6 Ways to Truly Relax During Your Service

We know life is busy and things get stressful!  It’s always our goal to provide a relaxing experience for our clients, so today we’re sharing 6 ways to truly relax during your service at The Lash Lounge . . . take note!

 1. Get Comfortable

At The Lash Lounge, we’re not just there to transform your lashes and brows, we’re there to make you as comfortable as possible. Our plush blankets are always a hit with our clients as they lay back and relax during their service. We also recommend that you chat with your stylist and let them know if there’s anything else you need in order to have a truly comfortable and relaxing experience.

2. Keep It Quiet

Our stylists love to chat with their clients of course, however a little less talk allows you to truly unwind – which we want you to do during your service! So don’t feel like you have to talk. Keep it quiet so you can relax and let your stylist work her magic!

3. Avoid Too Much Caffeine Before Your Appointment

We all love our coffee, sodas and those super tasty Starbucks drinks that helps us get through the day. But if you’re all hyped up on caffeine, you may find it hard to relax. So save your favorite caffeinated indulgence for after your appointment – if you can!

4. Listen to Some Tunes

Some Lash Lounge salons offer headphones or earbuds so that clients can listen to music and unwind – and we also always welcome clients who bring their own! Listening to music is a great way to tune things out and enjoy that much deserved time during your appointment. Click here for some chill songs and best relaxing pop hits playlist!

5. Choose a Low Stress Appointment Time

If possible and your schedule allows, try to choose an appointment time that will keep the stress level low and allow you to truly relax during your service. For instance, if you schedule an appointment during your lunch break or cut it close before another commitment, you may feel stressed worrying about the next place you have to be. However we know that sometimes you just gotta work things in when you can, so do what you need to do but if you can – allow yourself that extra time so you can really relax! (Now it’s easier then ever to make an appointment at The Lash Lounge with our on-line booking.)

6. Put Your Phone On Silent

We rarely put our phones away, even for just a short time. During your appointment, every ding or notification may keep you from getting that much needed lash nap you’ve been dreaming of all week. So keep your phone in your purse and even turn it on ‘do not disturb’ for a short time. Everyone will survive and you will enjoy your “me time’ so much more!

4 Famous Mother-Daughter Duos and Their Beauty Tips

Mother’s Day is right around the corner which got us thinking about some famous Mother-Daughter duos. Check out these lovely ladies and a few beauty tips they swear by.

Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson

Always smiling and exuding joy, Goldie and Kate are clearly best friends and share an amazing relationship. Kate has followed in her mother’s famous footsteps and off the big screen, she also shares her mother’s love for life, as well as her healthy, active lifestyle.

Goldie & Kate’s Beauty Tips: When it comes to beauty, it’s apparent that great genes run in the family, but in a joint interview with Allure in 2013, Kate was asked what beaut secrets she learned from her Mom, and said “I think it’s more the stuff we eat. Like green juice—mom’s been drinking green juice forever. And taking teaspoons of olive oil. We love products and we have fun with products, but in terms of the real stuff that I’ve learned from mom, it’s her lifestyle. She was always healthy and active and drinking something green.”


Tina & Beyonce Knowles

Tina Knowles has always been known as a strong, confident woman – and clearly she passed that on to her daughter. Beyoncé and her mom have a strong bond and also share a love for beauty and cosmetics. Beyoncé grew up going to her mother’s salon in Houston, where she saw and learned a great deal. Fast forward to 2010, Tina collaborated with Beyoncé to open the Beyoncé Cosmetology Center at the Phoenix House in Brooklyn.

Tina’s Beauty Tip: Undergarments are the foundation to looking great. A good bra, Spanx, or some tummy-control panties to smooth out the lines are really important. (source: cosmopolitan.com)

Beyoncés Beauty Tip: “My best beauty advice came from my mother. She always says that outer beauty fades and inner beauty has a lasting effect. She also told me to wash my makeup off before going to bed. I don’t always, but I’m trying!” (Source: ogleschool.edu)


Michelle and Chynna Phillips

This pair not only share beautiful features, but also beautiful voices and success in two well known music groups. Michelle was in the group The Mamas & The Papas in the 60’s and Chynna was (and still is) with the popular 90’s group, Wilson Phillips. Both women have taken great pride in taking care of themselves and Chynna has watched and learned from her mother over the years.

Michelle’s Beauty Tip: “Wash your face with soap every morning, with a mild cleanser and rinse it with the same soapy water 30 times.” She also shared, ” I always use moisturizer. And I always use L’Oreal. And here’s the big reason why I use it. I use it because I can buy it at my supermarket! A moisturizer with a sun block, and at night you use a moisturizer without sun block.” (source: knotslanding.net)

Chynna’s Beauty Tip: In an interview with Carol Au Courant, Chynna shared her top 4 natural beauty tips: “Get 10 hours of sleep each night. Use a mask – any mask – once per week on your face.  Never pop a zit.  And stay away from too much sugar, dairy, white flour, and anything processed.”


Tracee Ellis Ross and Diana Ross

Where do we begin with this mother/daughter duo? While Diana is a tough act to follow, her daughter Tracee has paved her own way in the entertainment industry. This is another pair that clearly share amazing genes, however Tracee had a great teacher in her mother and learned how to care for herself.

Diana’s Beauty Tip: “My ‘quick makeups’ are jumbo eye pencils, really black black pencils, and mascara, maybe blusher and a light lip gloss, something nice for the day.” (source: vogue.com)

Tracee’s Beauty Tip: “I’m really big on hydration, you gotta drink the water so there’s hydration on the inside and the outside.” When it comes to moisturizing, Tracee has a unique method and recommends “spanking” your moisturizer into your face, by tapping lightly on your skin while the moisture sinks in.
