Eyelash Extensions FAQ

What are Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash Extensions are individual strands of synthetic fibers made to replicate a natural eyelash. When applied, eyelash extensions lengthen and thicken your own natural eyelashes. The single strands are applied to each individual eyelash, one by one. With proper application, lash extensions look and feel completely natural. 

How long will a set of eyelash extensions last? When should I get a fill?

When applied by one of our professionals, eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your own eyelashes. Every 2 weeks is the ideal recommended time after your first set, but every client is different depending on how well they take care of their lashes. 

Is this procedure painful? Are eyelash extensions safe?

No, eyelash extensions should never be painful. Hampton Lash Lounge only uses professional grade adhesive which never comes in contact with your skin. Synthetic eyelashes adhere about 1 mm away from your skin. 

Can I apply mascara to eyelash extensions?

Our eyelash extensions are designed to give your natural lashes an improved look of fullness so mascara is not needed. 

Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit the spa while wearing eyelash extensions?

We do ask you to minimize the chance of wetting the extensions for the first 48 hours of wear. After that 48-hour period, the adhesive used to apply your eyelash extensions is secure enough to allow you to get right back to your routine. However, keeping away from extensive contact with steam such as in saunas or certain facials is recommended since it can begin to loosen the bond. 

How soon can I wash my face after the extensions are applied?

The suggested time frame is 48 hours. For a guest with sensitivities, it is suggested to wash within the first 12 hours of application. 

How do I dry my eyelash extensions?

After cleansing your eyelashes, brush your extensions with a clean mascara wand and use a lint-free cloth to gently apply pressure to the top of your extensions while keeping your eyes closed. 

How do I take care of my new eyelash extensions?

  • Do not get lashes wet for the first 24-48 hours
  • Avoid hot saunas or steam rooms, especially in the first 48 hours
  • Do not rub your eyes
  • Avoid running water directly on your lashes
  • Do not wear waterproof eye makeup
  • Do not use an eyelash curler 
  • Use oil-free makeup remover only around your lashes
  • Brush with a clean mascara wand daily.

How long will it take to apply eyelash extensions and how is it done?

The application process for lash extensions normally takes about 90-120 minutes for a full set of lashes and 45-60 minutes for a refill. You will lay comfortably on a massage table with your eyes closed while relaxing ambient music is played in the background. During application, your lower lashes will be covered and the extensions will be applied only to your upper lashes one at a time.  

How do I choose the look I want?

Your technician will consult with you to understand what type of style you are interested in and what look will work best with your natural lashes. The overall look of the lashes can range from very natural to very voluminous! 

Do I have to do anything to prepare for the service?

Right before you appointment you may be asked to cleanse your lashes with a mild cleanser to remove any leftover makeup or oils. Lashes should not be permed or manually curled at the time of your appointment.

What happens if I choose to have my eyelash extensions removed?

We do offer a service to have the extensions removed involving a short thirty-minute appointment in which we apply a gel remover. The gel remover is applied on top of the extensions without touching the skin and allowed to sit for 10 minutes. Once the adhesive is dissolved the extensions are gently wiped away with lint free applicators exposing the natural lashes. We do not recommend that clients remove at home or by themselves because this will damage and remove your natural lashes.

Is dermaplaning right for my skin type?

How will dermaplaning affect my hair?

Once your hair begins to grow back it might feel different because the hair was cut straight across, but it's actually the same texture as before and grows at the same speed. It also just might seem thicker because the hair was bluntly cut by the razor versus having a natural point to it. 

Is there a lot of down time?

Some light redness can be expected but not always. It's perfectly normal for ppl to come in on there lunch hours and then go back to work.

Results can last up to four weeks. The procedure removes three weeks of dead skin cells, so your glow will last all month long. Since your skin is always growing, you'll need to schedule an appointment every month or so to maintain your results

Waxing FAQ

What exactly is waxing?

 Waxing is a form of hair removal that removes the entire hair from the hair follicle. Warm wax is applied to the skin and adheres to the hair. When removed, the hair is pulled from the root. 

Does waxing hurt?

 Everyone’s pain tolerance is different, but you can expect a short, stinging sensation after the strip is pulled. If you are worried about being sensitive, taking an ibuprofen or aspirin about 30 minutes before your appointment should minimize your discomfort (consult with your physician before taking medications). Continuous waxing causes finer and less hair therefore waxing becomes less painful. 

How long can i expect my wax to last?

 If you’ve allowed your hair to grow out to the proper length prior to waxing, you can expect to be hair-free for a minimum of 1-2 weeks following your appointment. 

Will my hair grow back thicker or darker?

No, waxing actually has the opposite effect. Hair that is removed at the roots grows in finer and softer over time.
