Lash Extensions: Will I Feel Them?

Do lash extensions look natural? Will I feel them? Will they be uncomfortable or bother me? Today, we’re setting the record straight so you can take the plunge and get the lashes you’ve been dreaming of!

THE LOOK

When it comes to the look of lash extensions, here’s the scoop: At The Lash Lounge, our eyelash extensions look just like your natural lashes. How is this possible? Each application we provide is customized to your eye shape, your natural lash line and then, of course, your own desired look.

We are not a “one-size-fits-all” lash salon. The different curls, thicknesses and lengths we offer are indistinguishable in weight to human lashes. Our experienced, professional lash stylists will choose a variety of extensions to create the most flattering, natural, custom look for you!

THE FEEL

Now, for the comfort question and how lashes feel. We’ve got good news for you: Assuming your lash extensions have been applied correctly by a trained stylist, lash extensions are nearly unnoticeable after application. Visually, you will see (and love) the difference in length, but you will not typically feel the extensions themselves.

And for the record, it should never, ever hurt when getting lash extensions! When you go to a licensed and trained stylist, there should never be any pain involved in a proper eyelash extension application. As a matter of fact, it’s a very relaxing experience for our guests; they’ll lie back in luxury, rest…and even nap!

Our 4-Step Eyelash Extension Customization Process

No client, their eye shape or their natural lashes are the same, which is why here at The Lash Lounge we take our client consultations very seriously. We want to determine a custom lash style to fit you and your life. How, you ask? See below for details on our 4-step eyelash extension customization process.

1. Face Mapping

Our Face Mapping system allows our stylists to determine the client’s eye profile. All eyes fall into 1 of 3 profiles and each eye can even be a different profile. Based on which profile each eye is, indicates which lash design will look the best. Our face mapping system provides a fool-proof, perfect lash design for each eye, every time.

 2. Lash & Curl Type

Our stylists strive to educate our guests on which lash curl is best for them and also which texture, Silk or Mink. We offer 3 different lash curls: C curl, D curl and L+ curl. (Stay tuned for more info coming soon to the blog on the textures and curls.)

3. Longest Length

To determine what the longest lash length is, our stylists consider the following: 1) The length of the natural hair 2) The condition of the natural hair 3) The desired look of the guest. If a guest requests a longer length, the stylist can use a thinner extension or suggest the client upgrade to mink lashes which are lighter in weight and won’t damage the integrity of the natural hair.

4. Application Method & Lash Thickness

The final step to the customization process our stylists conduct is selecting which type of application method the guest prefers (Classic Lashes or Volume Lashes) and which lash thickness will work best with their natural hairs.

After the stylist has completed the 4-step guest consultation, they will then complete the guest’s custom design code. Below is an example of how that design code is determined:

Design: Straight, Upward, Downward
Curl: C, D, L+
Lash Type: Silk or Mink
Length: List the longest lash length selected (i.e. 12mm)
Method: Classic or Volume
Thickness: .06, .07, .10, .15, .18
