  • Can eyelash extensions damage my natural eyelashes?
    We get this question all the time. Rest assured that they don’t damage your natural eyelashes if they’re done professionally and applied in a proper, clean manner.
  • What takes place during a fill or touch-up?
    When you come in for a touch-up or a fill, we apply the extensions on those eyelashes that have either lost extensions and on those that have naturally shed and then grown back.
  • What styles of eyelash extensions are available?
    There are four different styles: classic, volume, and hybrid and mega volume. The classic style is the most natural, and the volume style is the most dramatic. Hybrid is a mix of classic and volume lashes while Mega volume is our most dense style.
  • How are eyelash extensions applied?
    Eyelash extensions are applied individually on the client’s natural eyelashes.
  • Are my eyelash extensions pulling out my natural eyelashes?
    Some people may ask why they see their natural eyelash stuck to the extensions as they see them shed. Let me assure you it’s nothing to worry about; it’s very normal to see your natural eyelashes falling out with extensions because the extensions are stuck on top of your natural eyelashes. Your eyelashes shed naturally. The extensions don’t pull out your eyelashes; shedding eyelashes are just more noticeable with extensions.
  • What are the extensions made of?
    All of our products are made of microfibers to mimic the look and feel of high quality hair. These microfibers are designed to feel soft to the touch and hold the desired curl of the extension. 100% Siberian mink labeled eyelashes are the ones that usually come from animal hair- a mammal called the mink. If you really want natural hair, that’s the style you would choose. But, in my experience, because it’s a natural animal hair, it doesn’t hold the curl as well as the artificial ones. Shalom Beauty LLC uses only animal-free, cruelty-free products and we do not carry 100% Siberian mink lashes and are very much against it!!
  • Can you be allergic to eyelash extensions?
    Some people may be allergic to the glue or tape used during the application. If you’re allergic, you can expect your eyes to swell up a little bit within the first 24 hours. If you think you’re allergic, contact your lash tech for information on the products used and consult your doctor if necessary.
  • Can I get eyelash extensions if I’m pregnant?
    We do have clients who are pregnant and get eyelash extensions, but we do advise you to consult your doctor first.
  • Can you wear makeup with eyelash extensions?
    The simple answer is yes. You just want to be careful when you’re removing your makeup so you’re not rubbing your eyes hard enough to pull your eyelashes off. You want to wash and massage the makeup off gently in a downwards motion. Make sure any makeup remover you use is oil-free.
  • What should I expect to feel after the application?
    They actually feel just like your natural eyelashes. You won’t feel them on your eyes like you do with strip eyelashes.
  • Can I wear mascara with eyelash extensions?
    Makeup around the eyes is not recommended while wearing eyelash extensions. Mascara can destroy lash retention and cause extensions to clump together which may result in total removal of eyelash extensions.
  • How long do the extensions last?
    Eyelash extensions last between 4 to 6 weeks depending on how well you take care of them and depending on your natural eyelash cycle.
  • What do I need to do to prepare for the application?
    The main thing is to come in with a makeup-free face, especially the eye area. If you do have eye makeup on, make sure to bring makeup remover or ask your technician for makeup remover so you can properly cleanse the eyes before application. Even a little bit of makeup residue can cause the extensions to shed quicker than they should.
  • What are eyelash extensions?
    Eyelash Extensions is a way to extend the length or thickness of your eyelashes. A lot of people also get them to change the look of their eyes.
  • How do I maintain the fullness of my eyelash extensions?
    A refill is required every two weeks to maintain the appearance of your eyelash extensions.
  • Does the procedure hurt?
    No, it actually doesn’t hurt. A lot of people think it hurts because in the pictures you see, you’re all taped up, there are lots of tools, and it looks like eye surgery. In reality, it doesn’t hurt at all. You’re very comfortable lying down with your legs elevated. Some people even fall asleep.
  • Can I use eyelash growth serums (like Latisse) while I have eyelash extensions?
    I only recommend using oil free serums for those who need it. i.e if you have little to no lashes, if your lashes were damaged etc. However, If you have healthy lashes and want eyelash extensions to last as long as possible, I wouldn’t recommend using them because the eyelash growth serums expedite the growth rate of your natural eyelashes, which can be helpful but does mess with your lash cycle. This could cause your natural eyelashes (and extensions) to shed much quicker than they normally would.
  • How long is the application process?
    The process usually takes between one to three hours depending on the look you want to achieve.
  • How long will my skin take to recover from a wax?
    It can take up to 1-2 days after your waxing appointment to recover. Initially, you may experience inflammation and redness in the area. Some, but not all, clients will experience red bumps (which will go away in a day or two). Wait 48 hours before you exfoliate.
  • How long will wax last before hair regrowth?
    Typically, it lasts around 3 to 4 weeks. Once the hair is at least ¼-inch long, you can go in for another wax. In the meantime, be careful to avoid shaving and using chemical depilators — it can lead to more itchiness, irritation, or ingrown hairs.
  • How do I prepare for my wax?
    Hair should be between one-quarter and three-quarters of an inch long for the wax to do its job. If it's longer, you might want to trim before you go. Scrub: Exfoliating the area before a wax can prevent ingrown hairs. Prevent pain: You should exfoliate gently 24hours before your appointment. Take ibuprofen or acetaminophen about a half hour before your appointment
  • What should I do post waxing?
    Wear loose-fitting clothing to avoid friction and irritation. Avoid perfumed products, lotions, and creams, which can irritate sensitized skin. Apply an over-the-counter cortisone cream on the waxed area to reduce inflammation. Avoid excessive activity for 24 hours after waxing.
  • How long should you not shower after a wax?
    Therefore, to avoid a painful experience, we advise that you wait the recommended 24-48 hours before taking a “HOT” shower or bath. Additionally, avoid swimming pools, jacuzzis, saunas and steam rooms. The heat could exacerbate any redness or inflammation.
  • How often should I wax?
    We recommend waiting 3-4 weeks before your next wax. You'll want to grow your hair out to be 1/4-inch long, or around the size of a grain of rice. Just make sure it's not longer than ½ inch, or you might have to trim it beforehand.
