With proper application, meaning one synthetic eyelash applied to one natural lash the look and feel is completely natural looking and real. No one will know you have extensions.They will just think you were born with beautiful, long and luxurious lashes!
How long will a set of Eyelash Extensions last?
When applied properly, eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes. Everyone’s experience will differ based on day to day activities but over all touchups should only be required every 2 to 3 weeks.
How often should I get a fill?
We recommend getting a fill every 2 to 3 weeks. If you wait too long your eyelash extensions will fall out and you will require a full set. A fill averages about 45 to 75 minutes.
Can I apply mascara to Eyelash Extensions?
Yes, even though mascara is not really required since the extensions actually give the illusion of wearing mascara it can be worn. It must however only be a water-based mascara and we highly recommend you use the Xtreme Mascara that has been specially formulated to wear with these lashes (available to purchase at Bardot Lash House). Care also needs to be taken in washing off the mascara and we recommend the Xtreme Facial Cleanser also available for purchase.
Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing Eyelash Extensions?
Yes.The bonding agent we use is waterproof and allows you to shower, swim, exercise etc. Special care is required but overall maintenance is low.We do recommend however that you do not wash your eye area for 24 hours after the eyelash application.
Can I use eyelash curlers with Eyelash Extensions?
We do not recommend using mechanical eyelash curlers on your eyelash extensions as these curlers will damage the extensions and possibly your own natural lashes.The extensions do have a natural curl so most people find they don’t need to curl them further.
How do I take care of my new Eyelash Extensions?
• Do not get lashes wet for 2-4 hours after application
• Avoid hot steam or sauna
• Avoid running water directly on your lashes
• Do not rub your eyes
• If applying mascara do so from middle to tip, avoid root area
• Use water based eye makeup remover
• Do not perm your lashes
• Do not use a mechanical eyelash curler
• Do not pull on your lashes (this may cause your natural lashes to come out prematurely)
Is the product FDA approved? Is it safe?
Currently the FDA is not regulating eyelash extensions because the eyelash extensions are applied to the natural eyelash hairs and do not touch the skin.The application process is pain-free and very relaxing however, improper application by an unqualified eyelash technician can cause damage to your natural lashes.We recommend only using a certified eyelash extension specialist.

The extensions will then be applied to each individual eyelash with a specially designed bonding agent.
How do I choose the look I want?
Eyelash extensions are available in a number of lengths and thicknesses.We consult with you first to see what type of style you are interested in and we also determine what your lashes can hold in regards to length and size.
