Eyelash Extensions are semi-permanent eyelash extensions comprised of individual synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. Our lashes are thicker at the base and taper to a fine point. They are applied on to individual eyelashes, one extension at a time, for a natural, elegant look to lengthen and add fullness to the existing lashes. Eyelash Extensions are for professional application only. Self-application and application by untrained individuals is strongly discouraged.
Eyelash Extensions are crafted from synthetic polyester. Synthetic lashes respond better to wear and tear than other materials. In addition, synthetics have the least possible chance of allergic reactions with human skin. Testing has shown that there are higher percentages of people who will have adverse reactions to contact with lash extensions created from animal hairs, such as mink.
With proper application, Eyelash Extensions look and feel completely real. Each application is customized to suit the individual. We offer three thicknesses of lashes and four different curls with lengths ranging from 8mm to 17mm in a variety of colors for highlighting effects. Varying individual synthetic lash lengths are chosen to carefully replicate the shape and frame of a natural lash line. The thickness of the Eyelash Extensions applied is determined by the health and thickness of your natural lashes as well as personal preference. The overall effect is added curl, thickness and length, opening up the eye for added definition.
Eyelash Extensions are designed to be indistinguishable in size and weight to human lashes. They are flexible yet crimp-resistant, and they move with your natural lashes. As long as you keep up with the touch-up applications, it is almost impossible to tell that you are wearing the extensions.
Because an Uptown Lash is an exact replica of an eyelash, it weighs about as much as a natural lash: practically nothing. You will not notice the addition of the extensions to your lashes and they will not cause your natural lashes to fall out ahead of their natural cycle as other enhancement methods can. Please feel free to review our client testimonials and before/after pictures for additional information on the look and feel of Eyelash Extensions.
Most women choose Eyelash Extensions to lengthen their natural lashes while others want their lashes to look fuller. A number of women with naturally light colored lashes choose Eyelash Extensions to darken their existing lashes. Still others love the different, fun looks they can achieve with highlighting and layering.
Eyelash Extensions can create a younger appearance on many clients. Several consumers who were contemplating having work done on their faces have informed us that they no longer feel the need as a result of wearing Eyelash Extensions. Eyelash Extensions create the appearance of a brighter, more open and rested eye, thereby creating a more youthful and rejuvenated look.
Above all, the main advantage of Eyelash Extensions is how much time you can save during your beauty regimen. Eyelash Extensions allow you to spend less time with makeup; mascara is certainly no longer necessary. Because our lashes are bigger at the base, they create the same effect as eyeliner so that step can be avoided as well. Overall, Eyelash Extensions will give you the appearance of having put significant effort into your eye makeup when, in reality, you spent no time at all. No application of eye makeup and no need for removal at the end of the day. The added benefit is that they look beautiful morning and night, all day, every day. Say goodbye to the application of mascara, stained tears and mascara raccoon masks around the eyes. With Eyelash Extensions you can look and feel gorgeous from the moment you wake up until the moment you fall asleep with little to no effort.
The look can be maintained indefinitely with refills. When properly applied, an Eyelash Extension will remain in place until the natural lash on which it rests falls out. This can be as long as two months or more.
Natural eyelashes grow in and fall out in cycles (every 60 to 90 days). When a natural lash matures and falls out, a new lash has already been growing and quickly replaces it without us noticing the turnover. This process is constant and at any given moment our many natural lashes are at different stages of maturity. Some are just growing in, while others are ready to shed. People typically shed between 1 and 5 natural lashes each day, depending on their individual growth cycles. On shorter natural lashes, this growing and shedding cycle is virtually unnoticeable.
When eyelashes are extended with Eyelash Extensions, it will be more noticeable when these lashes shed because they are longer and darker than natural lashes. Please keep in mind this is a perfectly normal occurrence, with or without extensions. Lash Stylists will apply Eyelash Extensions primarily to those lashes that are in the middle of their maturation cycle to maximum the amount of time they will last, without jeopardizing the health of ‘baby' lashes. The will fall out with the natural lash it is attached to when it reaches the end of its growth cycle. A few Eyelash Extensions may shed within the first week because the attached natural lashes are at the end of their growth cycle. Most will remain in place for approximately two months.
With proper care and maintenance, touch-ups are typically only needed once every 2 to 4 weeks to replace the lashes that have shed. Your Eyelash Extensions Stylist will add extensions to the newest mature natural lashes to maintain a full, lush appearance.
Depending on the expertise and experience of the Lash Stylist and the number of lashes being applied, it generally takes between 120 to 150 minutes to apply a full set of Eyelash Extensions. Touch-ups can be done in as little as 45 to 60 minutes.
You will be comfortably reclined with your eyes closed while Eyelash Extensions are applied one at a time to your own natural eyelashes. There is no discomfort or pain involved in the procedure. In fact, most clients find it is so relaxing and comfortable that they fall asleep.
Because Eyelash Extensions are applied to existing natural lashes you must have some natural lashes to receive the procedure. Eyelash Extensions should not, and in many cases cannot, be applied to clients who have alopecia, are undergoing chemotherapy or those who suffer from Trichotillomania, unless and until the individual has received effective treatment and normal lash growth has resumed.
No. Only a trained professional will be able to safely apply Eyelash Extensions. Unprofessional application or self-application may cause eye injury, lash damage or unnatural looking lashes. Eyelash Extensions are applied one lash at a time to your individual natural eyelashes to achieve long, thick and natural looking eyelashes. The procedure involves bonding the synthetic extension to your own natural eyelashes and should be performed only by professionally trained Lash Stylists only.
The major investment in Eyelash Extensions consists of the initial full set, typically between 70 and 120 lashes per eye. This can run anywhere from $135 to $250, depending on how many lashes are applied, the skill level of the Lash Stylist. The application of Eyelash Extensions is an art form, and just as with hair styling and cutting, it can cost a bit more to have your lashes styled by the best. Once the initial set has been completed, touch-ups are nominal by beauty industry standards.
An Eyelash Extensions touch up application costs substantially less than the initial application, usually ranging from $55-$250. Given this, the cost of maintaining your eyelash extensions indefinitely is really quite comparable to the cost of fills on acrylic nails or highlighting your hair.
One note of caution: We hear countless stories of individuals who go to an untrained lash technician because the cost is low. They receive a substandard set of lashes that is clumpy, painful and often damaging to their lashes. A proper application of lashes is not painful during or after the procedure. Eyelash extension application is an exacting process that takes skill and time. If the cost is very cheap, you should certainly question the training of the technician as well as the quality of the product. These same individuals often end up seeking out an Eyelash Extensions Stylist after they try the cheap alternatives. Ultimately, most have realized from experience that the old adage “you get what you pay for” is often true.

So what exactly is a lash lift?
Essentially, it's a perm for your eyelashes, except our artists use silicon lash pads to create a flawless curl. While this doesn't make your eyelashes any thicker, it creates somewhat of an illusion that they are in doing so.
Lash liftsare performed with non-harmful chemicals that break down the bonds in your lashes. On the backdrop of a silicon pad, salon-grade glue is then used to create a new look, providing rich curls that are set in place with a lifting lotion, a setting lotion, and a nourishing agent. In total, the process takes about an hour,
You should avoid getting any moisture on them for 6 hours.
Lash lifting can last anywhere from one to three months depending on the state of your natural lashes. If you are looking into this service for the first time, we highly advise sitting down with one of our skilled Lash Artist who can walk you through what your options are based on your lash conditions and your desired look.
Brow lamination is a perm for your brows, as it gives them a set, uniform shape for an extended period of time. Instead of curls, a setting lotion helps brow hair stay brushed up and lifted upward.
We will start by brushing out your brows, then applying a lifting solution. Once the brows are fully saturated, we occlude the brow with a piece of cling film, to advance the solutions efficacy, and to also hold them in place. After the desired time has passed, we remove the film, remove excess solution, and apply the next step, which is the setting lotion. After time has passed, we remove all excess product, and you’re finished!
Brow laminations can last anywhere from 6-8 weeks, depending on your hair’s growth cycle and hair type. Avoid getting brows wet for 24 hours, as well as avoiding the area with any of your serums or moisturizers. Brows are still setting up, so the look may be a bit bold on day one, but you can style to your preference after a day or two!
We use only the best --- Elleeplex Profusion which is vegan and does not contain thioglycolate.

Initially developed for spas and salons, it’s so efficient and effective that dentists worldwide now offer our system to their patients as an alternative to power whitening or custom trays.
The Advanced teeth Whitening System is a professional light-activated teeth whitening system that combines the strongest, freshest gels with our high-powered Futura™ 2400 blue LED teeth whitening light.
The basic system utilizes our proprietary 16% hydrogen peroxide teeth whitening gel that is highly effective yet safe for sensitive teeth. The gel is too strong to use with whitening trays so we developed the original paint-on system in which the gel is carefully brushed onto the teeth with a built-in pen style applicator brush. Soft mouth tissue is protected with the use of a cheek retractor and vitamin e swabs.
We recommend three back-to-back applications of 15 minutes each. The first application mostly just opens the pores in the enamel. The second application begins to visually whiten the teeth, and dramatic whitening results are achieved during the third application. We recommend following up with a take-home kit or pen to prevent color regression and further enhance the results. And finally, we recommend the customer purchase Minerals Enamel Booster from you to seal in the results, alleviate any tooth sensitivity they may experience (if any), and to remineralize and strengthen their enamel.
What Makes It So Good
Results! Results are primarily what makes our system one the best professional teeth whitening systems on the market. Spa and salon owners, dentists, and customers all RAVE about the results. Many professionals report.
