This beauty trend has shown tremendous growth in this new millennium. Not only does eyelash extensions beautify your eyes, it also reduces time spent on makeup. So… what are you waiting for? Let’s LASH it!

So here is everything that you need to know about Eyelash extensions.

 

 

What are eyelash extensions?

Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent extensions that enhances one’s eye-beauty in terms of fullness, length and curliness. The material used for eyelash extensions typically revolves around mink, synthetic or horse hair. At DR. LASH, we use premium mink lash to glue on your eyelashes.

Lashes come in different lengths, thickness, and curls. It makes your eyes appear wider and more prominent. It comes in various lengths, curls, and thickness. If you are confused, don’t worry. Our lash experts will assist you in selecting your preferred lash style, length and shape to achieve your desired look.

How Eyelash Extensions Work?

Eyelash extensions are applied on your natural lashes one at a time using a specially formulated, semi-permanent glue that is kind to your eyes and the natural lash. Every single eyelash has their own growth cycle, hence they don’t fall out all at the same time. When you have extensions, they will fall out together with your lashes that are already shedding. The eyelash extensions would usually last for about 3 to 4 weeks or longer, depending on various factors. Although some women do it every week, most people get fill-ins every three weeks to maintain their eyelash extensions.

Here at DR. LASH, the health of our customers’ own natural eyelashes will always remain our top priority. This is why our therapists are trained to be able to differentiate how a healthy, new grown, or damaged eyelash looks like and will be able to advise the next best course of action accordingly.

  

What are the different styles of eyelash extensions?

Eyelash Extensions comes in various forms. Here at DR. LASH, we have five different styles of eyelash extensions using premium mink lash.

First is Au Natural style; uses thicker strands of lashes (0.12mm/0.15mm) to enhance your original lash while keeping the natural look.

Second option is The Doll; which strikes the perfect balance between natural and voluminous eyelashes, achieving the best of both worlds.  

Third option is The Diva; that gives you the fullest lash line and with the eyeshadow effect.

Our fourth option is The Scarlet, a playful combination of short and long lashes to achieve the subtle sexy look.

The fifth option is The Kim K; an alternate blend between long and short eyelash extensions, giving off the wispy effect.

Last option is The Avant grade;  our in-house specialty technique giving your lashes its fullest bloom.

All types of lashes recommended by our eyelash experts are based on observing the facial shapes of yours. To get into more depth about Eyelash Extension read full details at here.

How to take care when you have eyelash extensions?

  Eyelash extensions are delicate like your natural lashes and should be handled with care. It is important not to wash them or take hot baths for the first 1 to 2 days as it may cause the adhesive of eyelash extension to weaken, causing your eyelash extensions to drop. Avoid touching the eyelash extensions or rubbing your eyes, instead comb them upwards with a spoolie to keep them dirt-free while maintaining its curl.

Always use oil-free cleansers or makeup removers to prevent weakening of the adhesive. It is recommended to apply the lash serum after the first week to strengthen and nourish your natural lashes. Lastly… Clean them with our lash cleansing foam once or twice weekly.

How much do the eyelash extensions cost?

The cost of your eyelash extensions generally depends on a few variables, namely, the salon location, the experience of the eyelash therapist, quality of products used, environment, and overall customer experience! General rule of thumb would be that the voluminous eyelash extensions would usually cost more than the natural lash extension series, as it requires weeks of training to learned this skill, and months of training to master it.

On average, a set of eyelash extension can range from $100 to $300 based on your personalized experience provided by the expert eyelash extension salons. Here at DR. LASH, we give you the freedom of customizing your length, curl and shape at no extra cost, and we offer unlimited strands for any service that you choose!

Brow Henna

What is it?

Brow Henna uses a natural plant pigment from the Hina tree making it perfect for sensitive skin types. It has ZERO down time! No needles involved, suitable for everyone, even pregnant mummies. Simply put, it is a temporary brow tattoo that results in a natural, fuller, tinted brow. With the brow henna, you no longer need to spend time and effort shaping and filling in your brows every morning so yay to more sleep time!!!!

The procedure goes as such:

Firstly, your therapist will trim and shape your brows. Using a brow pencil, your therapist will lightly draw out the outline for the tinting process. You can communicate with the therapist about your desired colour and shape! After this step, the tinting begins! The pigment will be gently applied on your brows for 2-3 rounds. After the pigment is dried up, a wet cotton sheet will be used to cleanse your brows and TA-DAH you have your perfectly tinted brows!!!

The entire procedure will take about 1-1.5hours. Brow henna lasts 1-2 weeks depending on your skin type and proper after care. Talk to our friendly Therapists to find out what’s your customised aftercare procedure! The pigment slowly fades away with no scabbing whatsoever.

Before VS After

Normal price for the brow henna is @ $108 (but do watch our IG STORIES closely for weekly promotions! ) 😉

Lash Lift

lash lift - eyelash extensions

Continuing from our previous post about the GRANDE LASH SERUM, I do now hope that you’ve achieved longer and fuller lashes, but what’s next?

It is common for Asian girls to have droopy lashes which mascara sometimes cannot even fix! If your lashes lack curl or if you prefer not having eyelash extensions, a lash perm may be the next most suitable option for you. Imagine how much time and effort you can save if you could wake up to naturally curled lashes! For this, DR. LASH has the perfect solution for you – the LASH LIFT.

Using only premium products from Korea and Taiwan, our Lash Lift takes about 1 hour and lasts approximately a month (subjected to individual’s lash condition). Our LASH LIFT process is a mild and safe procedure that is not harmful to your own lashes. Unlike many other salons, we do not use strong chemicals that will cause your lashes to turn fizzy and weak.

Our treatment comprises of 3 steps.

First, using an antibacterial foam cleanser, your eye area will be thoroughly cleansed and disinfected to prepare your lashes for the next step.

Secondly, a perming solution will be applied gently to your lashes with a tiny brush. Depending on your preference for either a natural or dramatic curl, our therapist will use a “curling rod” to perm your lashes to achieve your desired look. The perming solution will be applied for 2-3 rounds, every 10 minutes. To improve absorption of the solution, a plastic wrap will be placed on the lashes too.

Lastly, the “curling rod” is removed, your lashes are cleansed and a layer of conditioning cream is applied to strengthen the lashes.

The final product is a naturally curled set of eyelashes that make your eyes look brighter and bigger. The most enticing benefit of our LASH LIFT is that it takes almost no effort to take care of and it makes applying mascara so much easier. Enjoy this treatment at only $88 (U.P 108) if this is your first visit by quoting “LASHLIFT88”!
