Frequently asked questions
How long do Love Those Lashes extensions last for?
Our Russian Volume Lashes and the Classic Individual Lashes last 4-6 weeks depending on two main factors: a person’s genetic hair growth cycle and how well they look after them. We suggest having them topped up every 2-3 weeks to replace any extensions that have shed due to the body's natural lash cycle and to replace any that have grown out.
What is the difference between the Classic Individual lashes and the XD Russian Volume lashes?
Classic Individual lashes are a 1:1 application, one extension on to one natural lash. So if a client has 50 eyelashes then they will be able to have 50 extensions applied. XD Russian Volume lashes are much much finer than Classic Individual lashes however we use more of them to create a delicate fan/flair. We then apply this single fan/flair onto each natural lash for a more volume look.
Do my extensions need to be long with lots of volume?
Your eyelash extensions are carefully selected during the consultation process in accordance with the look you would like but taking into consideration the safety of your own natural lashes. We will never apply extensions that are too long or too heavy for your natural lashes to hold. Our extensions range in length from 6mm all the way up to 16mm, and from 0.03mm in thickness all the way up to 0.18mm. We also have 3 different curl intensities ranging from a very subtle lift to quite an intense curl (think 'eyelash curler' effect).
Can I shower, swim and partake in other water activities while wearing Love Those Lashes extensions?
Absolutely! This is why we love them. After the first 24 hours of “drying time” you can do all of these things worry-free. Perfect for all occasions ESPECIALLY holidays, weddings and special events.
How often should I get infills?
As mentioned above, we recommend top-ups every 2-3 weeks however some people like to pop in weekly and others every 3-4 weeks. Its really trial and error to see which timeframe is right for you and your lashes. This infill treatment is much shorter than the initial application.
Can I apply mascara to my Love Those Lashes extensions?
You can apply mascara to Classic Individual Extensions but NOT to XD Russian Volume Extensions. One of the best things about our eyelash extensions is that the need for mascara is gone, the majority of our clients only put mascara on their lower lashes. If you do feel the need to put a coat of the black stuff on your Classics please make sure it is NOT waterproof as this will effect the adhesive (same goes for waterproof eyeliner, its a no no too!) We sell Lash Perfect mascara in the salon which we all use and LOVE!

Please visit the Aftercare page for guidance and instructions on looking after your extensions.
Can you describe the Love Those Lashes extension process?
We pride ourselves on our relaxing lash treatments and make you as comfortable and cosy as possible. Lying down on a beauty bed (heated if you wish) and covered with a cosy blanket, we carefully separate each of your own natural lashes and apply your chosen extensions to them, one at a time, making sure your natural lashes do not stick together and clump. This allows the natural lash (with it's extension attached) to grow out on its own, not pulling the neighbouring lash with them. Each treatment varies in time but a full set of Classic Individual tends to be around 1.5 hours and XD Russian Volume tends to be around 2.5 hours.
Are eyelash extensions good for holidays?
Yes, perfect! You can swim and shower with no problem. Eyelash extensions look great on the beach and around the pool. Your eyes will always look glamorous and give the appearance of wearing mascara.
How long can I wear Love Those Lashes extensions for?
Our lashes can be worn indefinitely. They are extremely lightweight and soft so will not damage the natural lash line. At the time of writing this I have been wearing lashes every day since September 2009 (i first tried them for my birthday and have been hooked ever since!). Some people prefer to have a short break every few months and have a new set applied but it really depends on you.
What is the difference between Love Those Brows and Billion Dollar Brows?
Both brow treatments carefully design the most suitable and complimentary eyebrow shape specifically for you. They include mapping, tinting, waxing, tweezing and highlighting however the one main difference is that Love Those Brows includes threading along the upper brow to create a perfect shape from above.
