WE ARE JUST ARTISTS THAT HAPPEN TO LOVE WHAT THEY DO
Eyelash extensions are used to improve the length, curliness, fullness, and thickness of natural lashes. These extremely lightweight lash extensions are meticulously applied to each of your individual lashes using a sticky bonding agent. The extensions are made from several materials including mink, silky components, or even human hair. We use only the best material in eyelash extensions to give you a nice glossy, perfectly shaped addition to your aesthetic. These extensions are perfect for any occasion and for everyday use.
Our most commonly practiced method of putting these extensions on is by using a sticky glue to individually stick the extensions to each eyelash one by one. We do this to make sure the lashes don’t stick together. Eyelash extensions and fake eyelashes are 2 completely different things.
Eyelash extensions are all personally customized to the individual. You can decide the length and the style of curl you want for your lashes. For those of you that want that natural, wide awake look, you’d probably like a “J” curl. The “C” curl is more suited to those of you who fancy a dramatic image and presence.
If done correctly, your natural eyelashes will not be affected by adding these fabulous lash extensions to your image.
For those of you wondering if you can still apply makeup such as mascara, the answer is yes. However, it’s highly recommended that you do not use any oil products to remove it and that you
only use water based makeup. Not waterproof. Applying an oily product will harm the bonding agent and completely ruin the eyelash extensions. But with longer, more defined lashes like these, you won’t need to put on makeup!
Here at HD Beauty we request that all of our clients come in with a naked face. Any makeup residue left on your eyelashes can severely harm the bonding process of the lash extensions to your natural lashes. This will ruin the entire lifecycle of the lash extensions. The sticky component applied to your eyelash extensions is waterproof. This means you can swim, surf, and take part in all sweaty, physical activities. We cannot stress enough that you should wait at least 24 hours before you get your extensions wet. This is to make sure the extensions have had enough time to completely dry.
We recommend our clients return for regular refill and maintenance appointments after the initial application of the extensions. These appointments should be had anywhere between 2 and 4 weeks for the classic sets. For volume sets we recommend that you revisit us in 3 to 4 weeks. This is because of the longer lasting effects of volume sets caused by the larger amount of lashes used than in classic sets. We advise you to not wait a lengthy amount of time before getting a refill. Anything past 4 weeks is considered a new set and not a refill. Following the regular maintenance routine will not only prolong the lash extensions, but also prevent any damage to them as well as your natural lashes.

What are Russian volume lashes?
Russian Volume lashes are for people that desire full, luminous and dramatic look. Volume technique consists of creating a handmade fan out of 2-8 extremely lightweight extensions, and then applied to your 1 individual natural lash. This technique creates a fuller look for clients who don’t have a lot of lashes, have sparse, bold spots or just want more of a dramatic look.
Lash extensions used in this technique are extremely lightweight, soft and super fine to create a perfect dramatic and full look.
We can create different sets from dramatic to very dramatic and full. Each volume set consists of number followed by a letter ‘D’. For example: 2-3D means that each individual handmade fan created for you will consists of 2 to 3 dimensional lightweight extensions applied to your each individual lash.
How does it work?
Procedure involves isolating one lash and applying single lash extension at time to the client’s natural eyelashes. Depending on the look you going the lash count vary from one individual to as much as 7 lashes creating into a fan to create the most va-va voom look.
How long does it take?
Typical eye lash extensions procedure takes minimum 1 hour, but depending on the look and set you going it can take from 60-90 minutes for Classic set. Volume Sets can take from 90-200 minutes depending on the volume set you choose. It’s very relaxing treatment, with no pain or discomfort.
How long does it last?
The lash extensions when applied with proper technique last up to the life cycle of the natural lash. As your own individual lash start to grow out it will push out the extension lash and fall out. Everyone will differ but with proper care commonly the lash extensions last up to 3-4 weeks.
Is maintenance required?
After the initial application of the lash extensions, we advise our clients to return for regular refill and maintenance appointments and those will vary from 2-4 weeks for classic sets. For volume sets we advise to come back from 3-4 weeks due to volume sets last longer than classic sets as there are more lashes applied then in classic sets. You shouldn’t wait too long to do a refill, over 4 weeks it would be considered as a new set and not a refill.
What if I don’t know what set would suit me best?
Initial appointment is included with a complimentary consultation. On consultation we discuss many styles by taking into consideration your wants and desires and choose the best possible look that will enhance your eye features and be best suitable for your natural lashes.
How do I take care of my eye lash extensions?
-Avoid Water for the first 24 hours. You want the glue to really set in so that your eye lash extensions would last as long as possible.
-Avoid direct running water on your eyelash extensions when showering
-Keep the area around the eyes and eyelash extensions clean by using wipes rather than cotton pads or balls. Cotton fibers could damage and get tangled in your eye lash extensions. (Not cute)
-Avoid Oil-Based Products (No Waterproof makeup remover)
-Avoid Waterproof Eye Products.
-Try Not To Curl.
-Comb them out every day with spoolie wand that will be given to you after your appointment.
-Try to avoid sleeping on your stomach or face flat into the pillow, you don’t want to put extra pressure on your eyelash extensions.
-Resist playing with your eyelash extensions, lashes shed on their own already and you don’t want to speed up that process by twisting and playing with them. Let it be a natural process.
If I have a big day coming up when should i do my appointment?
If you doing eyelash extensions for the first time then we recommend booking in 2-3 weeks ahead of your day, and doing a refill 2-3 prior the big day. This will not only give you time to get used to eyelash extensions but also would you give an advantage of changing styles and maybe switching things up.
Are there any preparations for my eye lash extensions appointment?
We ask all our clients to come to appointment free from any eye makeup. Any traces of makeup left on lashes can significantly ruin the process of bonding of eyelash extension to your own natural lash, which can ruin the whole lifecycle of eyelash extensions. If it’s not possible for you to refrain from using the eye makeup then we have makeup remover and cleanser that can be used by you on the day of your appointment.
If you wear contact lenses we ask that you either would need to throw them out or bring a container where you can put them in while doing the procedure. Due to the length of your appointment and with your eyes closed the whole time, contact lenses can dry up your eyes and cause extreme discomfort. It will be a much pleasant experience if you just let your eyes rest without anything in them.
Can I have eyelash extensions if I have sensitivities to make up or any related beauty products?
Before the appointment we will ask you to come in a day before to do a “Patch Test”. Where a small amount of product we use will be places on to your lashes of a sensitive part of your skin to see if you get any reaction and whether you will be a good candidate for the procedure.
Will my natural lashes get damaged by putting eyelash extensions?
No and No. That is the biggest myth. Eyelash extensions placed properly will NOT damage your own natural lashes. Just make sure to follow the maintenance routine it will not only prolong your wear but bring less damage to the eyelash extension and natural lash itself.
Can you swim and shower with your lash extensions?
Yes. The bonding agent we use for your eyelash extensions is waterproof which will allow you to swim and participate in all water and sweat related activities. We will stress that you need to wait 24 hours before your get your eyelash extensions wet to let the bonding agent to dry completely.
Can I use mascara on my eyelash extensions?
Yes you can use mascara on your eyelash extension if you need to. The only mascara you can use must be water based and not waterproof and do not use any oil products to remove it or it will damage the bonding agent and ruin the eyelash extensions all together. However, we wouldn’t suggest using mascara because the eyelash extensions we use already come in beautiful black glossy finish that curved perfectly to resemble the natural lash and create a full and sexy look.
How will lash extensions change my make up routine?
Well, it will definitely give a whole lot of extra time in the morning because you would be waking up looking fresh and fabulous. It’s best to stay away from using mascara, eyeliners, and eye shadow or eye curlers. Most mascara and eyeliner products will damage the bonding agent in the eyelash extensions so we suggest refraining from using any products that contain petroleum in them. If you do need to get a full on makeup look then please just remember to use oil free cleaning products.
