eyelash extensions


It’s summer!…pools, parties, summer sports and trips to the beach, if you’re lucky…but what about your lashes? Contrary to popular belief, eyelash extensions are perfect summer wear.

We recommend splurging on a set of extensions right before a vacation, so you can enjoy all that summer has to offer, without having to worry about running mascara, or untamed lashes.

Here are some helpful after care guidelines so you can enjoy your lash extensions all summer long!

The 24 Hour No Water Rule

Your eyelash extensions can’t get wet for 24 hours after application. After that 24 hours is up you can shower, soak, swim, and go crazy with water all you want. But those first 24 hours are a water-free zone! Plan ahead for this.

Avoid extensive heat

When applied correctly, your lash extensions are sturdy and resilient, but high heat can take even the best-applied lashes down. Don’t point your blow dryer in the direction of your lashes. The heat will straighten out and distort them. Likewise, avoid exposing your lashes to high-heat cooking like standing over a flaming grill or putting your head to close to a stovetop or hot oven. Relaxing in the sun by the pool or beach? No problem, of course!

Keep Them Clean

Your lashes, both real and extensions, collect environmental pollutants, such as dust, chlorine and salt water. To keep eyelashes clean and fresh, we recommend using our Bella Lash after care system which contains a lash extension approved mascara and gentle,oil-free lash cleanser.

Use Oil Free Makeup and Removers and Specialty Mascara

The oils in many makeup and remover products are the worst enemy of your lashes. The oil breaks down the adhesive causing premature lash loss. Avoid makeup wipes all together on your lashes.

And use only Lash extension approved mascara, NEVER USE AN EYELASH CURLER, and NEVER waterproof mascara.

Handle With Care

Yes they are new and fun, but your extensions are not a toy! Your natural lashes have their own cycle and shed naturally, so avoid rough handling such as rubbing and pulling which can remove your natural lashes and the extensions. Never be tempted to pick or remove extensions yourself. Always consult your technician for help.

You can even help out your lash longevity when you sleep. By sleeping on your back or side, or using a silk sleeping eye mask, you can minimize the pressure on your lashes.

Satin Pillowcase

Speaking of loving your lashes while you sleep, using a satin pillowcase can help you maintain your lashes. Not only do satin pillow cases look and feel luxurious, the silky smooth fabric reduces friction which in turn helps keep your lashes in place (studies have shown that sleeping on a satin pillowcase can help eliminate hair loss and breakage). So avoid cotton pillowcases and splash out on satin, which gives the added benefit of a “cool touch,” perfect for those warm summer nights!

Schedule a Fill

To keep lashes gorgeous throughout the summer, follow your natural eyelash growth cycle and keep up with a fill every two to three weeks. Yes, eyelash extensions do require maintenance, so please be prepared for the upkeep. This is a super important part of your after care regime.

Still wondering if you should get those lashes done for the summer? We say go for it!
