Meet Our Lash Expert

Bobbilyn is a certified classic lash artist, wifey, and momma to two amazing kids. She has been doing lashes for the last 5.5 years and have taken a small, at home business to a full-time career. Her passion for lashes comes through with every set, either by enhancing a women’s natural beauty with a simple, classic set of lashes or a big and bold volume set.

The Art of Lash Extensions: How It Works

Lash extensions offer a transformative way to achieve dramatic, long-lasting lashes. Here’s a glimpse into the meticulous application process:

  1. Appointment and Preparation: During your first appointment, our certified lash technician will discuss your desired lash look, assess your natural lashes, and recommend the most suitable extension length, thickness, and curl. She will then cleanse your lashes to remove any makeup or oils.
  2. Lash Isolation: Using specialized tweezers, the technician will meticulously isolate one natural lash at a time. This isolation ensures each extension is attached to a single natural lash for optimal comfort and lash health.
  3. Adhesive Application: A tiny amount of medical-grade adhesive is applied to the base of the lash extension. The adhesive used is specifically formulated for lash extensions and dries quickly to create a secure bond.
  4. Extension Placement: With exceptional precision, the technician carefully places the extension onto your natural lash, ensuring a seamless connection. The placement is crucial for a natural appearance and comfortable wear.
  5. Repeat and Refine: The technician meticulously repeats steps 2-4, attaching lash extensions one by one to your natural lashes, creating a customized lash look based on your preferences.
  6. Curing and Finishing Touches: Once all extensions are applied, the adhesive is allowed to fully cure. The technician will then gently brush the lashes to separate them and ensure a natural, fanned-out appearance.

Enjoying Long-Lasting Lash Beauty

With proper care, lash extensions can last for 3-4 weeks. However, natural lash shedding plays a role in their lifespan. As your natural lashes complete their growth cycle and shed, the extensions attached to them will fall out as well.

Here are some tips to extend the life of your lash extensions:

  • Avoid touching or rubbing your eyes.
  • Use oil-free makeup removers on your eyes.
  • Avoid sleeping on your face.
  • Get regular fills every 1-4 weeks to replace shed lashes and maintain a full, beautiful look.

By following these tips, you can enjoy the luxurious look and convenience of lash extensions for weeks on end.

Anticipated Reactions of Lash Extensions

While lash extensions can enhance your look, there are a few potential drawbacks to consider:

  • Eye irritation or allergic reaction to the adhesive used.
  • Damage to natural lashes if not applied or removed properly.
  • Increased risk of eye infections if not properly cared for.

Important Note: For minimal risk and stunning lashes, choose a certified technician who prioritizes hygiene and uses top-quality products.

Maintaining Your Lash Extensions

The Importance of Touch-Ups

Regular touch-up appointments are essential for maintaining the fullness, neatness, and overall beauty of your lash extensions. Here’s why:

  • Natural Lash Shedding: Our natural lashes go through a growth cycle that includes a shedding phase. As your natural lashes shed, the extensions attached to them will fall out as well. Touch-ups replace these shed lashes, ensuring your lash line remains full and even.
  • Maintaining Volume and Definition: Over time, some extensions might naturally detach due to factors like brushing or sleeping. Regular touch-ups allow the technician to strategically replace lost extensions, restoring the initial volume and definition of your lash look.
  • Preventing Gaps and Unevenness: Without touch-ups, gaps and unevenness will develop in your lash line as extensions fall out. Touch-ups ensure your lashes maintain a consistent, aesthetically pleasing appearance.
  • Promoting Healthy Lashes: Regularly removing and reapplying extensions allows the technician to assess the health of your natural lashes.

Touch-up appointments typically take less time than the initial application process. During a touch-up, the technician will replace shed extensions and ensure your lash line remains full and beautifully defined.

Natural Lash Cycle and Shedding

Understanding your natural lash cycle is crucial for managing lash extensions effectively. Here’s a breakdown:

  • Growth Phases: Our eyelashes, like hair, go through distinct growth phases: anagen (growth), catagen (transition), and telogen (resting). The anagen phase, lasting 2-7 weeks, determines the length of your natural lashes.
  • Shedding and Replacement: At the end of the telogen phase, natural lashes naturally shed and are replaced by new growth. This shedding process occurs continuously, with several lashes entering the telogen phase and shedding daily.

How Shedding Affects Lash Extensions

Since extensions are attached to your natural lashes, shedding plays a significant role in their lifespan. As your natural lashes shed, the extensions attached to them will fall out as well. This is why touch-up appointments are necessary to replace shed extensions and maintain a full lash look.

The frequency of lash shedding varies from person to person, but generally, most people experience noticeable lash loss every 1-4 weeks. This aligns with the recommended timeframe for scheduling touch-up appointments to maintain your desired lash fullness.

By understanding the natural lash cycle and its impact on extensions, you can manage your expectations and prioritize regular touch-up appointments for continuous lash enjoyment.

What to Expect During Your Appointment

Consultation and Lash Design: Crafting Your Perfect Look

At Worthy Skin & Beauty Bar, we understand the importance of creating a lash look that complements your unique features and preferences. Here’s how we help you reach your lash goals:

  • Discussing Your Vision: We’ll begin by discussing your desired lash look. Do you crave dramatic volume or a more natural enhancement? Bring pictures or describe the style you envision.
  • Natural Lash Assessment: Our technician will meticulously examine your natural lashes to determine their health, thickness, and growth patterns. This assessment ensures the chosen extensions are suitable for your individual lashes.
  • Tailored Recommendations: Based on your desired look and your natural lashes, the technician will recommend the ideal lash length, thickness, and curl to achieve your goals. They will explain the different options available and help you make informed choices.
  • Customization for Each Eye: Our technician understands that eyes can have slight variations in shape and size. During the design process, they will customize the lash application to flatter your unique features and ensure a balanced, symmetrical look.
  • Open Communication: Throughout the consultation, we encourage open communication. Ask any questions you might have and feel free to express your preferences to ensure you’re completely comfortable with the chosen design.

By taking the time for a collaborative design process, we aim to create a lash look that exceeds your expectations and makes you feel confident and beautiful.

Tailoring Time to Your Lashes

The duration of a lash extension appointment can vary depending on the complexity of the desired look and the technician’s experience. Here’s a general breakdown:

  • Full Set Application: While competitors might take 4 hours for a full set, at Worthy, our expert technician, Bobbi, can complete it in about 1 hour. This is because Bobbi’s years of experience allow her to work efficiently, ensuring a thorough consultation, customized design, and meticulous application – all in a shorter timeframe. This allows the technician ample time for the consultation, design process, and meticulous application of each extension.
  • Touch-Up Appointments: Touch-up appointments, which replenish shed extensions and maintain fullness, are generally quicker, typically taking 30-45 minutes.

The actual time may vary depending on the number of extensions needed. We prioritize a comfortable and meticulous application process, ensuring each extension is securely attached for optimal results.

Comfort and Relaxation

Lash extension application should be a relaxing and enjoyable experience. Here’s what you can expect during the process:

  • Comfortable Environment: We provide a comfortable and relaxing environment to ensure you can unwind during the application.
  • Painless Application: The application process itself is painless. You might feel a slight sensation as the technician isolates your natural lashes and applies the extensions, but it’s generally not uncomfortable.
  • Relaxing Atmosphere: Some clients even find the application process quite relaxing, allowing them to take a well-deserved break while their beautiful lashes are created.

We strive to make your lash extension appointment a positive and pampering experience. Feel free to communicate your needs and preferences throughout the process for optimal comfort and relaxation.

Additional Considerations

Classic vs. Volume Lashes: Exploring Different Lash Extension Styles

The world of lash extensions offers a variety of styles to achieve your desired look. Here’s a breakdown of two popular options:

Classic Lashes:

  • Description: A single extension is applied to each isolated natural lash, creating a more natural enhancement with increased length and definition.
  • Benefits:
    • Subtle and natural-looking result
    • Ideal for those who prefer a less dramatic look
    • Lighter weight on natural lashes
    • May be a good choice for first-time clients
  • Drawbacks:
    • May not provide as much volume as volume lashes

Volume Lashes:

  • Description: Multiple, ultra-fine extensions (usually 2-5) are applied to each isolated natural lash, creating a dramatic, voluminous look with added fullness and fluffiness.
  • Benefits:
    • Creates a full, glamorous lash look
    • Ideal for those who desire a bold statement
    • Offers a wider range of customization for dramatic effects
  • Drawbacks:
    • May feel heavier on natural lashes compared to classic lashes
    • Requires a higher level of technician skill for proper application

Choosing the Right Style for You

The best lash extension style for you depends on your desired outcome, natural lash health, and personal preferences. Here are some factors to consider:

  • Desired Look: Do you crave a subtle enhancement or a dramatic, voluminous effect?
  • Natural Lash Health: Volume lashes might not be suitable for very fine or weak natural lashes. Discuss this with your technician.
  • Consultation is Key: During your first appointment, our experienced technician will discuss your preferences and assess your natural lashes to recommend the most suitable style for you.

Lash Extension Aftercare Instructions

Proper aftercare is essential for maintaining the beauty and longevity of your lash extensions. Here are some key instructions to follow:

  • Avoid Water for 48 Hours: Allow the adhesive to fully cure after application. Avoid showering, swimming, or excessive sweating during this time.
  • Gently Cleanse Daily: Use a lash cleanser specifically formulated for extensions to remove makeup and debris buildup. Avoid harsh rubbing or oil-based cleansers.
  • Brush Gently: Use a spoolie brush to gently brush your lashes daily, maintaining their shape and preventing tangling.
  • Avoid Rubbing Your Eyes: This can cause premature extension loss.
  • Minimize Oil Exposure: Avoid oil-based makeup products around the eyes as they can break down the adhesive.
  • Sleep on Your Back: Sleeping on your face can crush or damage your lashes.
  • Schedule Regular Touch-Ups: Maintain fullness and a polished look with touch-up appointments every 1-4 weeks.

By following these simple aftercare tips, you can extend the lifespan of your lash extensions and enjoy their beauty for weeks to come.

AFTER CARE RECOMMENDATIONS

Avoid Water for 24 Hours

Resist the urge to get your lashes wet for the first 24 hours after application. This allows the adhesive to fully cure and ensures a strong bond.

Be Gentle

Avoid touching, rubbing, or pulling at your lashes. This can loosen or damage the extensions.

Sleep on Your Back

Sleeping on your back for the first few nights minimizes friction and helps prevent the lashes from falling out prematurely.

No Oil-Based Products:

Steer clear of oil-based makeup removers, cleansers, or skincare products around the eyes. Oil can break down the adhesive and shorten the lifespan of your extensions.

Limit Heat and Steam

Avoid excessive heat or steam exposure from saunas, hot showers, or curling irons near your eyes. This can loosen the adhesive and damage the lashes.

Brushing is Key

Gently brush your lashes with a clean spoolie brush daily to maintain their shape and prevent them from tangling.
