Eyelash extensions are a semi-permanent treatment that involves attaching synthetic eyelashes to existing lashes. An individual synthetic eyelash is adhered to each natural eyelash, one by one. This adds thickness, length, curl and colour. Eyelash sets are chosen based on one’s preference, as well as their natural features and eye shape. (NOTE: Patch test can be done on request if someone has sensitive eyes and skin).
Individual semi-permanent synthetic silk or mink lashes (which resemble natural lashes) are adhered to each individual natural lash, about 1-2 mm from the base of natural lashes. The synthetic eyelashes never contact the eyelid, in order to create a bold yet natural look. Eyelash extensions provide the appearance of darker, more voluptuous lash-lines and replace the need for mascara.
In this style, one individual extension lash is adhered to an individual natural lash also known as a one-on-one lash extension. There are different lengths, thickness, and curls available to create different shapes and styles (taking into consideration the natural lash type and the client’s personal preference). The diameter of classic lash extensions is between 0.15 mm and 0.25 mm. This style is suitable for those who have got a lot of natural lashes and wants to add length, curl, darker defined line of lashes. This set is great for a subtle, everyday look.
This style involves adhering a fan of synthetic lashes to each individual natural lash. 2 x fine lashes together are called 2D, 3 x lashes together; 3D, 4 x lashes together; 4D and so on.
In this style, 2-6 extensions can be applied to one natural lash. They are also known as Russian volume. Volume lash extensions add depth and texture by filling the gaps and making eyelashes more full and fluffy.
These lashes are more fine and light weight than the lashes used for classic lash extension. For example, the diameter of volume lashes is between 0.07 mm and 0.10 mm. This style is suitable to someone who have short and sparse lashes and wants natural and fluffy look.
This style also involves adhering a fan of synthetic lashes to each individual natural lash. 2 x fine lashes together are called 2D, 3 x lashes together; 3D, 4 x lashes together; 4D and so on.
In this style, 8-15 extensions can be applied to one natural lash. This creates maximum fullness and a bold, dramatic look. The diameter of these extensions occurs between 0.03 mm and 0.05 mm.
In this style, both classic and volume lashes are combined to create a natural yet fuller look. This style allows you to achieve a fuller but still natural look.
The effects of lash extensions depend on many factors, including the lash shed cycle. The lash shed cycle refers to our normal rate of eyelash loss. Normally, lash hairs shed at an average rate of 20%-30% every 2-3 weeks. Hence, lash extensions will fall out with the natural lash. The longevity of your lash extension is also influenced by skin/ hair type, routine (i.e. skincare/ makeup routine), humidity, sleeping position, amount of eye rubbing, etc.
In general, eyelash extensions last anywhere from 2-4 weeks*
To maintain fullness, touch up are recommended at 2-3 weeks*.
*This differs from person to person.
I’ve recently starting seeing Ras & I am obsessed with the results I get. The shape is perfect & the colour perfectly compliments my skin tone. The whole vibe of the salon is relaxing and it really allows you to just stop & take some time out. I used to travel an hour each way to get my brows done, but SO glad I’ve found this amazing local gem. 10/10 recommend Sami’s Brow & Lashes.
I have never let anyone touch my eyebrows! because I always had a fear of them stuffing my eyebrows up. but I am so happy that I went to Sami to get them done she did an amazing job.
Definitely will be a regular customer from now on.
