Q: What are eyelash extensions made of?
A: The eyelashes used for eyelash extensions are made of synthetic, soft, and lush fibers with a high gloss finish. JB Lashes carries 12 different colors, 11 different lengths, 4 different thicknesses, 2 different curls, and over 5 different types of lashes (including mink lashes) – that is over 200 combinations of lashes to choose from. The customizable combinations to fit your specific look are endless!
Q: Are JB Lashes safe?
A: JB Lashes only use pharmaceutical grade adhesive which never come in contact with your skin. Synthetic eyelashes are adhered about 1mm away from your skin.
Q: How long do JB Lashes last?
A: Eyelash extensions last through the length of your natural growth cycle of each lash, which is between 60 to 100 days. Touch-ups are recommended every 2-4 weeks to replace lashes which have fallen off due to the life cycle of natural lashes.
Q: How do I care for JB Lashes?
A: Eyelash extensions are easy to maintain. Avoid excessive rubbing and use water-based cleansers and products formulated specifically for eyelash extension wearers like LashCare. Use a small Q-tip to carefully clean eyeliner around the eye.
Q: Can I wear mascara on JB Lashes?
A: The great thing about JB Lashes is that you won’t need any mascara or eyeliner! JB Lashes’ LashCare Volume Up Mascara, which is specially formulated for eyelash extensions can be used on the tips of the eyelash extensions. Water-proof mascara is DEFINITELY not recommended.
Q: How do I prepare for the service?
A: You should thoroughly clean your lashes with a mild cleanser. Do not use oily makeup remover to clean your lashes prior to the application. Lashes should not be curled or permed (unless directed otherwise by your technician) and all mascara should be removed. As the service is approximately 2 hours long, you can bring your own iPod or your favorite CD to listen to during the procedure.
Q: Can I receive JB Lashes if my eyelashes are tinted or dyed?
A: Yes, it is safe to receive eyelash extensions on tinted or dyed eyelashes. However, it is not recommended to tint, dye, or perm lashes while you have eyelash extensions applied.
Q: How do you remove eyelash extensions?
A: Come in and let us professionally remove them with a special remover. Please do not attempt to remove them yourself as the glue is very strong.
