LASH EXTENSIONS

 

WHY CHICSINCITY?

We only use high quality products and hand pick all our artists to ensure the value of work that comes from Chicsincity. We focus on lashing 90% or more of the natural lashes during each full set or fill appointment. This allows clients to have fuller Lashes for a longer period and may help space out appointments an extra week - week 1/2. We guarantee our work so if for any reason you are unhappy, contact us within 3 days of your appointment and we'll happily fix any issues.

 

WHAT TYPES OF LASH PRODUCTS DO WE USE?

Our lashes are faux mink, they are as soft and light as real mink while keeping their curl or color. Our adhesive is formaldehyde & latex free. Each eyelash extension comes in various curl, lengths, thickness, and colors to give our guest a unique set to complement their eye shape.   

 

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VOLUME & CLASSIC?

There are two techniques in lashing; Volume and Classic. Volume (Also known as Russian Volume or 2D-6D Lashes) is a technique in which you are safely applying handmade & customized fans of lashes using 2-6 fine extensions per natural lash. Because Volume lashes are lightweight, they can weigh less or equivalent to one Classic eyelash extension. Classic lashing is applying one extension to one natural lash. Both techniques enhance the natural lashes by thickness and length. Combined the two styles and you get Chicsincity's signature Mixed lash set that everybody loves. 

 

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A JR. ARTIST & A MASTER ARTIST?

Our Master Artists have 2+ years of lashing experience. Our JR Artists are personally trained by our Master Artists and have been lashing for 6-12months.

 

HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO GET FILLS?

To maintain the life of your lashes it is recommended that classic fills be done every 2-3 weeks and volume fills every 3-4 weeks. Clients should come in for a fill when 50% of their lash extensions have shed. We offer Fill+ services which add's extra time to your appointment if needed. Clients with less than 30% will be considered a full set.

 

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FILL AND A MINI FILL?

A fill is done for regular maintenance. Mini fills are timed and only recommended for touch-ups. Depending on the clients lash style preference our mini fills are timed as; 30 minutes - Classic, 45 minutes - Mixed, and 1 hour - Volume.

 

WILL EYELASH EXTENSIONS RUIN MY NATURAL LASHES?

No. This is a common myth. Eyelash shedding is part of the natural eyelash life-cycle. The average person sheds between 2-5 lashes on each eye daily. That is why it is necessary to come back for fills every 2-4 weeks. If applied correctly eyelash extensions will not hurt your natural lashes or cause premature shedding. Chicsincity will keep the integrity of your natural lashes. We will not apply lashes that are too heavy or long for your natural lashes to hold. 

 

LASH LIFTS

 

WHAT IS A LASH LIFT?

Lash Lifting is a technique where a Lash Artist will use a curling agent, and conditioning solution to lift your natural lashes making them look longer and fuller. Lash Lifting services also include a Lash Lint to darken the lashes and enhance the lash line. If you are sensitive to Eyelash Extensions, Lash Lifts are a great alternative and requires less maintenance.

 

WHAT TYPE OF LASH LIFTING PRODUCTS WE USE?

We use the Elleebana One Shot Lash Lift for Lash Lifting services.

 

HOW LONG DO LASH LIFTS RESULTS LAST?

Lash Lifts last 8-12 weeks depending on the lash shedding cycle. The service only takes about 1 hour to process.

 

WHAT iS THE AFTERCARE OF LASH LIFTS?

Minimal aftercare is required! Avoid getting lashes wet for the first 24 hours and avoid all oil based products for longer lasting results. After the first 24 hours, you can swim, wear makeup, and do what you normally would do without worrying about it affecting the Lash Lift!

 

CAN I GET LASH LIFTS IF IM PREGNANT?

although safe, chemicals may not work as they normally would and results may vary during pregnancy.

 

LASH CARE

 

BEFORE APPOINTMENT

 

It is important to clean any makeup residue from your lashes before each appointment. Any residue on your lashes prevent the bond from fully attaching the extension to the natural lash. If you wear contacts bring a travel case to place them in during your appointment. It's helpful to wash your hair before your appointment because you want to avoid getting your lashes wet for 24hrs. 

 

AFTER CARE

 

HOW TO CARE FOR LASHES: The lash bond takes 24 hours to fully cure so it is important to avoid steam, sweating, and water during this time. Makeup remover, makeup, and facial products used around the eyes should be OIL FREE. Be gentle on them and avoid picking, pulling, or sleeping on your lashes. Be careful of high heat around your eyes such as the oven and blow dryers. And as always, Mascara and eyelash curlers are a no-no.

 

HOW TO CLEAN LASHES: Clean your lashes every night regardless if you wore makeup that day. Dirt, oil, and debris can build up on your lash line so cleansing your lashes is important for maintaining the health of your natural lashes and lash extensions. Our CHIC É CLEAN lash cleanser is tear free and gently cleanses in between each lash. Many of our clients have expressed how much longer their lashes last since using our cleanser!
