Many falsy lash wearers tend to think about how it would be to invest in some individual lash Extension. So many unanswered questions about this tedious process, and we had a chance to sit down with Lash technician and expert Tiara Elon of Foxy Lash Academy to answer all the questions a first-timer would like to know.

The Process

The process starts with you on a table with your eyes closed. Your technician will cleanse your lash bed then carefully put a collagen pad on top of your bottom lash. This process can be a little uncomfortable when you’re not used to it. Good lash techs will have some music playing so you can be at ease while keeping your eyes closed for so long. When the process is done your lashes are brushed and ready to be fabulou. 

How long is the process?

Applying a complete set of lashes takes two to three hours. It depends on the style and how many lashes you have. 

 Is the process painful?

No, the process is not painful. There may be some discomfort during the beginning; however, you can experience some burning if you open your eyes. If at any point you experience burning or pain during the process,  you should speak up. You may need to have your technician change the glue or adjust something. Getting extensions is a pain-free experience.

Is it okay to also wear mascara?

You may, however, it is not recommended. If you must do so, you can apply lightly at the end of the lash.

Will your natural lashes get damaged? 

No, If applied correctly and properly, they won’t ruin your natural lashes. It is necessary to make sure your last technician is certified. 

Can I Learn and do it myself?

It’s not recommended to do it on your own. Even lash techs don’t do their lashes. 

Price: the price can range from 65-400 depending on the technician and products used. 

My experience :

So I had to get my lashes done here in Atlanta. I was put to lay down on a soft bed. My lashes were cleaned and brushed, and I was told to open my eyes slightly to insert the collagen pads. My body generally is susceptible, so I was very squirmish. The collagen eye pads that held my bottom lashes down were very comforting. My eyes kind of opened sometimes when I got relaxed. My lash tech was very careful with me and made sure I was comfortable the whole way through. Three hours later, I opened my eyes, and I was fabulous.
