Frequently asked Questions:
Can I send pictures of the different sets that I offer:
I often get asked to send pictures of the different sets that I offer to inquiring new clients. I absolutely understand why a person would want to have these visuals but it is very hard to send a picture of a set on someone else. The out come of every set is going to look different on every client. Some of the different factors that can affect the overall look are: the density of the specific clients natural lashes, the clients face and eye shape, her overall desired look, the set she got, and the length and curl I used to create that set. Because of all these different factors, no two sets will look the same. However, I do have a gallery for you to see some of my work.
How long do they last?
Retention really depends on how well you maintain your lashes. Aftercare is the single best way to ensure that your lashes last. In general most clients return at the 2-3 week mark for a fill. By that time it is expected that you will have about 50% of the original set remaining and would require a fill to keep them looking their best. The time frame between fills is completely dependant on how many natural lashes you have, your natural shed cycle (your eyelashes shed just like your hair), how well you maintain them, and how full you like them to look. Some ladies come every 2 weeks for a fill and some can stretch it to 4. If you are getting lashes for a one time event and don't expect to fill them, you can expect to have some still hanging on after 6 weeks.
How long do they take to apply?
I work based on time and are booked as follows:
- 1.5 hour appointment for all new classic and hybrid sets.
- 2 hour appointment for a full set of volume.
- 2.5 hours for a mega volume.
- All fills are booked for 50 minutes.
If you know that you are going to go longer between fills and will require more time you can book a time extension.
A 20 minute appointment extension can be added for an extra $10.
If you are late to your appointment, the late time is taken out of your appointment time. If you are more than 15 minutes late you forfeit your appointment and a fee will be charged.
Times have changed! You do not have to wait to get them wet anymore.
Please do not use mascara on your lashes. If you use mascara on your bottom lashes it can transfer to your top lashes.
Eyeliner and eye shadow are ok but please no gels. Eyeliner pencil can gunk up in the base of your lashes.
Do not use oil based products on your face. This includes: makeup removers, lotions, eye creams, serums, etc.
Make sure that you wash your conditioner out of your hair and avoid getting the conditioner in your lashes. If you do make sure to clean them throughly.
Avoid excessive heat for 48 hours after application, this includes: no hot steam, baths, saunas, steam rooms, hot yoga, etc.
You must clean your lashes every day, at least once per day. If you can, I recommend washing them twice. Wash them when you wake up and before bed. If you exercise a lot and get sweaty, make sure you are cleaning your lashes right after. I will discuss how to clean your lashes at your appointment.
It is very important to not pick, pull, rub or twist the extensions, let them fall out naturally or you can damage your natural lashes. Also, avoid sleeping on your extensions.
If you experience any problems with your lashes they will need to be examined by me and will be fixed free of charge within 36 hours, anything after that will be discretionary and a payment will be needed.
Can I bring a someone?
Please come alone, this is a relaxing experience for you, where you will lay with your eyes closed. Please don’t bring children, friends and or significant others. Also, please limit your caffeine intake on the day of. Caffeine is a stimulant, can make your eyes twitchy, and can make it hard for me to work.

Please text 780-686-5256.
Special event eyelashes -
If you are having your lashes done for a special event and you have never had them before, I recommend having a full set done 2 weeks before the date, and then an fill a couple of days before your event. Why? - If you to have an allergic reaction, you will have time to heal before your event.
How does it work?
I attach synthetic lash extensions to each one of your individual eyelashes. Hybrid, Volume and Mega volume lashes are still applied to one single natural lash. I attach them with a special glue that is formulated specifically for eyelash extensions.
