Eyelash Extension Care: To Blow Dry or Not? What…

Blow drying: It’s a crucial part of many women’s morning routines. But when it comes to eyelash extension care, is it safe? Will that morning primp cause your lashes to flop? We sat down with our expert training team to get the scoop. Get ready! The facts just might “blow” you away!

1. Getting Too Close to Any Heat Source Is a No-No

Scorched lashes? No one wants that! Whether it’s your blow dryer on the highest heat setting, stoves, ovens, smoke or really anything with an open flame, be aware of how close you get your lashes and eyelash extensions to heat.

Not only can your lashes get singed, but extreme heat can also cause synthetic lash extensions to melt, which can make your lashes appear clumpy when they cool back down. What a mess!

Steer clear of high heat to avoid losing that beautiful shape you and your stylist have worked so hard to perfect.

2. Keep It Cool

Sorry, ladies, when it comes how to care for eyelash extensions, the blow dryer and your lash extensions, blowing high heat directly onto your eyes is definitely something to avoid.

For example, if you use a round brush and blow dryer to do your bangs, make sure your lashes aren’t collateral damage. Why? The heat can cause your lash extensions to singe, lose that beloved curl, warp, bend or curl in opposite directions. Yikes!

The best thing to do when drying your hair is to put the dryer on a low heat setting. Yes, it might take a couple extra minutes to get those lovely locks dry, but it’ll be better for your lashes and your hair!

3. Flip It, Flip It Good!

If you can’t make the switch to the cooler heat setting on your blow dryer just yet, give this a try: Flip your head over and dry your hair upside down. This will minimize the heat blowing directly onto your face, so you can still get out the door fast!

If you try this, still make sure you toggle the heat setting down to “cool” when drying the areas closest to your face for the safest blow dry.

4. A Nod to Nozzles

These days, many blow dryers come with some useful accessories and tools. Our favorite is the concentrator nozzle. Don’t leave that bad boy in the box—get it out and use it!

A concentrator nozzle funnels the hairdryer’s airflow directly onto the portion of hair you’re working on. This helps keep your lash extensions safer because it limits their exposure to the air.


If you’re into this topic as much as we are, be sure to tune in on Instagram next week for #TrainingTakeoverTuesday, where our training team will continue to talk heat and lash extensions! Because, at The Lash Lounge, how to take care of eyelash extensions is a topic that never goes out of style!

The Beauty of Customization

Customization is the name of our game here at The Lash Lounge. The way we see it, no guest is alike, so there’s no reason their lashes should be either!

From application method to curl to lash level, today, we’re talking the customization classics, plus three guests share their one-of-a-kind lash looks!

FORMULATED TO FIT

Every time you visit The Lash Lounge, the experience will be 100% about you. This is your time, after all—to relax, to transform, to reclaim and reintroduce yourself to the world.

But before you lay back for some lash zzz’s, our trained stylist will guide you through a customization . First, we’ll learn a little about you, your lifestyle and the look you’re going for. Next, we’ll walk you through our different lash types, application methods, curls and fullness levels. We even have a lookbook we can flip through to help illustrate all your options! Working together, we’ll pull together the inspiration for your unique lash creation.

With all the customizable elements in place, next comes our exclusive lash design technique. Here, we’ll use your natural features as our lash canvas to create a personalized look that amps up your natural beauty. Unlike other salons, we do not offer cookie-cutter, “one size fits all” looks. Celebrating your unique individuality is our passion!

3 REAL CUSTOM RESULTS

It’s this customization, attention to detail and care that sets our work apart from the rest. But don’t take our word for it! See for yourself how this lash magic comes to life. We’re spotlighting three real guests’ electrifying lash looks, unique works of art built specifically for them by their stylists.

MORGAN FROM THE LASH LOUNGE

Morgan, our guest from The Lash Lounge Corporate Training Center, is all about va-va-volume. So, we knew right way our volume extreme lash extensions were the perfect fit for her!

To complete this look, Corporate Stylist Trainer Shelley used our bright D curl extensions across her lash line. Now Morgan, who is a rock star realtor, can take on each day with killer volume lashes as she passes those keys on to her clients.

SARAH FROM THE LASH LOUNGE FLOWER MOUND – ROBERTSON’S CREEK

This before and after on Sarah, guest from The Lash Lounge Flower Mound – Robertson’s Creek, almost speaks for itself. During her consultation, Sarah shared with her stylist that she wanted long lashes, but with a more natural appearance.

To achieve this look, her stylist went with our classic application method and C curl lashes. This means that she attached one extension to each natural eyelash in our softest curl. The result? Nothing short of the timeless look Sarah had her heart set on when she stepped inside the salon.

GILLIAN FROM THE LASH LOUNGE CHARLOTTE – BLAKENEY

When we have a guest who is torn between our classic and volume lash applications, we have the perfect solution: hybrid lashes! That’s just what Gillian from The Lash Lounge Charlotte – Blakeney chose.

To master this look, her expert stylist beautifully blended both methods (classic and volume) and created a custom design to give Gillian our dramatic lash level. A picture-perfect lash line was the end result and now Gillian is hooked on hybrid!
