What Are Lash Extensions?

Consider lash extensions to be semi-permanent false eyelashes that do not harm your natural lashes. They can add length, volume, or a combination of the two to create a stunning lash look, depending on the style. Many of our clients appreciate how their extensions make them look more put together without the need for mascara or falsies.

What Is the Application Process Like?

Individual eyelash extensions are applied to a client's natural lashes with an eye-safe adhesive. Depending on the lash style, the procedure should take between 90 and 120 minutes. The Mediterranean Beauty Spa requests that you schedule a consultation with us prior to your appointment so that we can help you determine which style will best suit your natural eyelashes and ensure you are not allergic to our products (By the way about our products, they are all organic).

How Long Do Lash Extensions Last?

A full set of lash extensions will last as long as your natural lash growth cycle, which is four to six weeks if cared for properly. However, for best results, we recommend scheduling a fill two to four weeks after your initial set is applied.

Do Eyelash Extensions Damage My Natural Eyelashes?

No! When applied correctly, with perfect isolation and weight, lash extension will not damage your natural lashes.


Will They Look Natural?

Yes.  Properly applied lash extensions should appear as if they are naturally there; however, you have the option of choosing looks that are long and more dramatic.  Your lash technician will help you choose a look that compliments and flatters you.  You'll love your new look!


How Soon Can I Wash My Face After The Extensions Are Applied? 

The suggested time frame is 24-48 hours. For a guest with sensitivities, it is suggested to wash within the first 12 hours of application.


Do I Have To Do Anything To Prepare For The Service? 

To remove any eye makeup, use an oil-free makeup remover to cleanse your lashes prior to the appointment as well to remove any leftover mascara. Lashes should not be permed or manually curled at the time of appointment.


How Should I Care For My Lash Extensions?

If you want your eyelash extensions to look perfect for as long as possible, we recommend following our care tips:

  • Don’t get them wet for the first 24 to 48 hours, which includes tears, showering, and makeup remover.
  • Brush through your lash extensions regularly with a clean mascara wand.
  • Avoid applying mascara or oil-based products.
  • Avoid playing with, picking at, or curling your lash extensions.
