Frequent Asked Questions
How long do they last?
Mink eyelashes are made of 100% minks fur. Semi-permanent eyelash is made from synthetic micro-polyester fiber, which is identical to human hair. They both last anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks depending on the life cycle of your own natural eyelashes as well the natural PH of your skin type. The dryer your skin is the longer they will last, yet the oilier your skin type the shorter the life span of your extensions. Though the average cycle of a single lash is about 90-120 days, factors such as your eyelash characteristics, lifestyle and general care of your eyelashes will affect how long your Minky's will last. When applied correctly, eyelash extensions do not make your natural eyelashes fall out.

Do you do fills refills on top of other peoples work?
Most professional Lash artist do not do refills on top of other peoples work at all, and after 13 years experience neither do I. It states this on our website. If i apply a refill to a set of eyelash extensions that were incorrectly placed, it could damage your natural eyelashes more. It is also a hazard when different techniques and adhesives are used incorrectly. It also affects the retention and makes the lashes fall out faster when a refill is done on top of an incorrect job. So i have to take the necessary precaution to protect myself by starting every client with a fresh clean set of eyelash extensions or a proper consultation to see if i would consider even doing a fill.. I will gladly offer a refill if the original set was done through somebody that I know or who was trained within the Minkys network, (the company for which I train for). I offered a consultation to examine the work done to see if it is a job I can do. This is our policy, and we are open to offer you a consultation.
