How long do eyelash extensions last?
Approximately 4-6 weeks if you respect your new lashes and take care of them. A real lash’s life cycle is around 25-28 days, and as yours grow and fall out, so will the synthetic ones that are attached. Your life style and what work you do will also make a difference how long they last. A ladies lashes working in the food industry where there is alot of heat, steam and oil may not last as well as a lady who works in an air conditioned office.
How long does the application take?
The procedure will take approximately 1-2 Hours Dependant upon the service required.
How are the eyelash extensions applied?
A single natural eyelash is isolated. A synthetic lash is then applied to your natural eyelash approximately 1mm from the eyelid so neither the glue or the lash has contact with the skin.
I had eyelash extensions applied a few days ago and a few lashes have fallen out – why?
Lashes have growth cycles and unfortunately it is hard to determine which lash is ready to fall out naturally so it is unpredictable when applying the synthetic lashes. Each day we can loose 3-5 natural lashes, but often they fall out unnoticed unless they fall into your eye, but when eyelash extensions are applied we are more aware of when they shed as we know the extensions are there plus they are longer, darker and thicker. If you sleep on your stomach with your face squashed into the pillow or you favour sleeping on one side you may notice the lashes may not last as well as the other side.
I have very sensitive eyes can i still have eyelash extensions applied?
Yes as eyelash extensions are applied to the natural lash never touching the skin. However, in extreme cases reactions can occur. If you have concerns please get in contact.

I had eyelash extensions applied somewhere else and I am unhappy with them can they be fixed at Ashley Allen?
Our technicians prefer not to mix their work with other peoples work so it is advised that you either allow your extensions to naturally come off or contact us to discuss the option of having the extensions removed before your appointment to have a new set applied. If your eyes are red and sore from the incorrectly applied eyelash extensions that were applied elsewhere, we would advise resting your eyes from extensions for approximately 3-4 weeks before having a professional set reapplied.
What should I do before my eyelash extension appointment?
If you have fair eyelashes it is recommended to have them tinted before your eyelash extension appointment. Preferably arrive with no makeup or at least NO mascara and do not perm or curl your eyelashes before your eyelash extension appointment.
