Question: What should I be prepared with for my first visit/consultation?
Answer: We highly recommend a complimentary consultation with one of the artists on our team! We recommend that you come with your hair styled normally, and some makeup on - as you would do an everyday look. This will give your stylist an idea of what you would do on a normal basis! Please bring in pictures of anything and everything that you like for your desired look, as well as old pictures from when you have liked or haven't liked your hair in the past. Keep in mind our first visit will also generally take a little longer than normal, we don't like to rush perfection!

Question: I am getting an updo or style for a special event, photo session, or wedding, should I wash my hair?
Answer: We prefer to work with cleaner to a day dirty hair. We have products to add texture and absorb oils where needed! Don't forget to wear a button down shirt or something that won't have to be pulled over your hair!
Question: What type of hair extensions do you offer?
Answer: We have 2 types of hair extensions that we advocate for and sell. We have a temporary option, HaloCouture, and a more semi-permanent option, SoCap fusion bonded. Both are 100% Remy Human hair and can be curled, hot ironed, and styled normally with your hair! We have carried HaloCouture extensions for close to 5 years now and love their product. They are an amazing option for hair extensions and we highly recommend them instead of clip ins or other temporary options. They will NOT damage your hair, they have more thickness than the leading options, and have a higher quality of hair that can last you for a very long time if you take care of them properly. If you are looking for a more semi-permanent option, we have worked with SoCap hair extensions for over 6 years and currently have 3 stylists trained on staff to do them. They last 4-6 months at minimum and are the most flexible, least damaging option for something that will last longer. Schedule a free consultation to see if these would be a great fit for you! Check out our portfolio of amazing before and afters from previous guests! Both HaloCouture and SoCap extensions take about a week to come in, but can be rushed even as quickly as overnight if needed. A consultation is required for both of these!
Question: What are lash extensions?
Answer: Eyelash extensions are used to enhance the length, curliness, fullness, and thickness of natural eyelashes.
Question: How long does a full set of eyelash extensions take?
Answer: A full set of lash extensions can take anywhere between an hour and a half to two hours.
Question: Can I wear my contacts to my eyelash appointment?
Answer: We ask that your contact lenses are taken out prior to your appointment. You are welcome to take them out for the appointment, please bring your contact lense cases, solution, and anything else you may need!
Question: How should I prepare for my lash appointments?
Answer: Come to your first appointment about 5-10 minutes early to fill out our client intake form. Please also come with a clean fresh face with no eye makeup.
Question: How long will my eyelashes last? How often will I have to get them filled?
Answer: Depending on how well you take care of them and follow directions from your technician, they should last anywhere from 2-4 weeks. We recommend seeing your technician at the 2-3 week mark before they start shedding too much!
Question: Are eyelash extensions safe for my natural lashes?
Answer: Yes, if applied properly and safely, as our technicians have been instructed to, they are safe and should not ruin the natural health of your eyelashes. Be sure not to rub or pull on your lashes because this can cause lash loss and even damage your lashes by tugging and putting too much weight on them.
Question: Do I still wear mascara with lash extensions?
Answer: It is not recommended that you wear any mascara or oil based products of any sort with your eyelash extensions. This will weaken the adhesive, causing the extension to fall out. Stick with a water based option for skincare and washes, and remember, no mascara!
Question: Are eyelash extensions involved when it comes to caring for them?
Answer: No, they make your life easier for most people! You don't need to, nor should you, wear any mascara. You will need to wait 24 hours before getting your lashes wet, and will want to avoid saunas or steam showers. You will want to avoid sleeping on your face, rubbing your eyes, and brush them 2-3 times daily! That's it!
Question: What kind of makeup do you use?
Answer: We use a variety of higher quality products with the healthiest skin in mind! We haven't found any specific brand that we love everything about 100% to date to use it solely, so we use many different brands and have hand picked our favorites to guarantee the best desired look for beautifully glowing skin! Some of our favorites are Urban Decay, Smashbox, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Morphe, Bobbi Brown, Makeup For Ever, NAARS, and more.
Question: I am getting makeup for a special event, how should I come in?
Answer: We prefer that you come in with a clean moisturized face with all makeup removed. Don't forget to wear a button down shirt or something that won't have to be pulled over your hair!
