Silk eyelash extensions are the softest version of synthetic extensions available. They are more lightweight, flexible and durable than the traditional synthetic. These lashes also bond better to your natural lashes as they are not as heavy as the traditional synthetic extensions.
Silk Lash Extensions
What is the difference between a half-set and full-set of lashes?
For a full-set, we apply extensions to all of your healthy natural lashes. For a half-set, we apply extensions to about half of your natural lashes which is every other eyelash. A half-set is a more natural look and a good option for someone who wants something very natural or is not yet ready to commit to a full-set.
Does a full-set include the bottom lashes?
No! A full-set means that we are applying extensions to all of your healthy natural eyelashes on the top only.
What happens during a fill appointment?
During your fill we will first remove any outgrown or wonky extensions. We will then apply extensions to about 50-60% of your lashes. If you only have about 10-20% of your extensions left, then it is recommended to book a full-set instead if you want your lashes to be 100% full again.
I have a wedding, special occasion or trip coming up but have never had lash extensions, what should I book?
If you have never had extensions applied before a special event, then we recommend booking a full-set 1-2 weeks before the event. Then booking a fill appointment 1-2 days before the event. If you book a full-set right before an event and are not completely satisfied with the result then we may not have the time available to squeeze you in at the last minute for a fix. If you book the full-set 1-2 weeks ahead of time and then a fill then it gives us the opportunity to fix or change things before your special occasion or trip.
I just had my lashes done and a few have fallen out, what can I do?
It is completely normal to lose 3-5 extensions per day. If you’re losing significantly more within the first 3 days after your appointment, then please give us a call and we will book you in for a free fix.
I had my lashes done at a different salon or person’s house, can I still get a fill at Lola Lash Bar?
Yes! We accept all foreign fills. If it turns out that your lashes aren’t in great shape and are too difficult to work on then we may recommend a removal.
Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing eyelash extensions?
Yes. The bonding agent we use is waterproof and allows you to shower, swim, exercise etc. Special care is required but overall maintenance is low. We do recommend however that you do not wash your eye area for at least 24 hours after the eyelash application.
How do I take care of my new eyelash extensions?
- Do not get lashes wet for at least 24 hours
- Use oil-free eye makeup remover
- Avoid hot steam or sauna (minimize hot yoga)
- Avoid sleeping on your stomach to avoid pressure on the extensions
- Avoid running water directly on your lashes
- Do not rub, pick or pull your eyes
- Do not use a mechanical eyelash curler
