Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON TYPES OF LASH EXTENSIONS?
There are three types of lash extensions: silk, faux mink, and mink. Size availability ranges from 7mm to 22mm. Once selected, the lashes are applied one at a time using a specially formulated, semi-permanent glue that will not irritate the eye nor damage the natural lash. However, since allergic reactions are possible, there are different types of glue based on your sensitivity. Please note that Tanesha only uses cruelty free material.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO APPLY LASH EXTENSIONS?.
The application process can take a while; a full set can take up to 3 hours, and touch-ups can take up to 60 minutes.
WILL GLUE GETS IN MY EYES?
No. Your eyes will be shut the entire time, so no glue will ever get into your eye. To avoid any irritation, however, the first safety precaution you can take is to be sure that the glue is safe for your eyes and doesn’t contain anything that can harm them, like formaldehyde. Shipping glues across the world often leads to a buildup of formaldehyde by the time they reach the salon.
Additionally, it’s important to understand the difference between an allergic reaction and an infection. an experienced lash technician will not let an infection occur, but if you’re allergic to the glue, you’re still going to be allergic — this doesn’t mean the glue is inherently harmful.
CAN I GO BLIND?
No. Tanesha has been trained properly to apply the adhesive and lashes in a way that is completely harmless. Your eyes are closed the entire time of the procedure. No matter how bad an allergic reaction may get, you will never go blind. The worse case scenario is that you need to go to the eye doctor to get specific eye drops to treat an allergic reaction.
WILL MY NATURAL LASHES GET HARMED OR DAMAGED?
No. If applied correctly and properly, they are safe and do not ruin the health of your natural lashes. Be sure not to rub your eyes or tug or pull on the extensions because this can cause lash loss and even damage to your natural lashes. If lashes are applied properly and to each individual lash, they won’t fall out.
HOW LONG WILL THEY LAST?
Since each lash extension is attached to a single eyelash, they will fall out naturally along with the natural growth cycle of each lash, which is typically 6-8 weeks. We recommend a touch-up every two to three weeks.
DO EYELASH EXTENSIONS INTERFERE WITH MY GLASSES?
No. You will be recommended on the best curl, width, and design in accordance with your lifestyle.
ARE EYELASHES SAFE IF I WEAR CONTACTS?
Yes. Eyelash extensions are safe for use with contacts.
HOW CAN I REMOVE EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
To avoid damage to your natural lashes, it is recommended that you have them professionally removed. Please do not attempt to remove the extensions yourself.
IS THERE A BOOKING DEPOSIT?
Yes, there is a $25 deposit required for all full sets. This deposit will be applied to your service. The deposit is non-refundable; however it is transferrable for rescheduling, if you cancel your appointment before 24 hours. If less than 24 hours the deposit is forfeited. For re-fills a deposit isn't required, but if you no-show your credit card will be charged the full amount of the service.
DO YOU HAVE A LATE POLICY?
There is a 10 minute grace period for all lash appointments. If you are late then you have the option to have the remainder of your time. During the remaining appointment time, Tanesha will perform as much of the scheduled service as possible and will conclude your appointment at the original scheduled time. Keep in mind that you will be charged for the full service. If you arrive more than 30 mins late, your appointment will be cancelled and you will forfeit your deposit and must reschedule, if Tanesha has another appointment.
