Eyelash Extensions

What are Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash extensions a trending cosmetic procedure that involves increasing the volume of your current eyelashes. The extensions are semi-permanent and are made from single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash.

They are worn by famous celebrities like Nicole Kidman, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Gwen Stefani, and Naomi Campbell to name a few. This is one of our most popular services here at Lash Factor studio, and why is that? It’s because we pride ourselves in providing the best eyelash extension services in Tucson.

What Is The Process for Extensions?

We add length and thickness to your own lashes and are available in varying lengths and thickness.  Each lash is applied one by one to your own natural eyelashes. Normally a person’s natural eyelash falls out every 60 – 120 days and a new lash grow in. Therefore, it is necessary to get touch-ups every 2 to 3 weeks to add lashes to the new growth.  Your natural lash cycle as well as how you take care of your lashes will affect how long the extensions will last. Some clients have had their extensions for over a year with regular re-lash visits.

The Design Of Eyelash Extensions

When you schedule an appointment at Lash Factor Studio, you are arranging a 1 on 1 meeting with an aesthetician to design your full set of lashes. This set of eyelashes will be fully customized for the look you are going for and this involves the length and the volume of your lashes.

Choose Your Eyelash Length

The length of your eyelashes is the most prominent part of your look. Many of our clients stick to a similar length as we have recommended sizes for longevity purposes. Doing things like getting your lashes wet or rubbing your eyes hard can also damage long lashes.
