Frequently Asked Questions
When applied correctly, eyelash extensions will fall out with the natural lash cycle. You will probably want touch ups every two to three weeks to maintain your lush eyelashes. The adhesive used for our extensions is specifically formulated with a unique waterproof bonding agent to last. Other adhesives may not last as long because of an inferior bonding strength.
Nothing! Our salons have everything you need to prep your eyes and lashes for your eyelash extensions. Your lash artist will supply you with makeup remover and lash cleanser to prep your lashes. If possible, try to avoid caffeine for at least 2 hours before the appointment.
Appointments take place in our open Main Room filled with other lash beds and artists. You will lie back on a comfortable massage table covered with a luxury plush blanket and be offered additional bolsters for support. Your eyes will remain closed for the duration of the appointment so we do ask that any phone calls be held until the service is complete. Full set appointments range from 2-3 hours and fills between 1-1.5. Many clients find the experience so relaxing that they fall asleep during the service.
Most lash clients will need fills every 2-3 weeks depending on their natural lash cycle and activity level. The more oil we produce, the more often our lashes shed, and the more often we need fills. Those clients with more dry skin will need fills less often and clients with more oily skin will need fills more often.

The wonderful thing about Wisp Lashes eyelash extensions is that we don’t count lashes! Our artists will use as many eyelash extensions as it takes to give each client a full set of lashes. Most clients have between 120-200 natural lashes. For a classic set, artists will apply 1 eyelash extension to every healthy natural lash available. Fora hybrid set, lash artists will apply a mixture of 1 eyelash extension or a handmade fan of 2-5 volume lash fans to each healthy natural lash. A Volume Lash Set is comprised of handmade fans consisted of 2-5 eyelash extensions that are applied to each healthy natural lash.
