Questions & Answers
What are eyelash extensions?Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent and designed to enhance the eyes with a more voluminous, beautiful, and youthful look. Single strand extensions are skillfully glued onto the natural lashes one-by-one, meticulously, one strand, one lash at a time. Each single micro-extension is carefully placed on top of each natural lash and secured with medical-grade adhesive. They are weightless, natural-looking, and glossy so they look like your own… but better.
What makes Trang so popular for eyelashing?
Trang was a natural from the beginning and has perfected the lash extensioning technique since starting her business in 2004. With stainless steel tweezers, one in each hand, she applies micro-extensions at a fast pace of 4-6 extensions per minute. She maneuvers and flips the tweezers to get her clients lashed to perfection in a convenient timeframe.
Trang understands busy lifestyles, so her work is fast & efficient so that clients don’t spend hours in the salon. Clients can expect to have extensions that last up to 12 weeks (up to 3 months) before all lash extensions have shed completely. Refills & touch-ups are required every 3-6 weeks. Maintaining regular refills willl allow clients to wear lash extensions for years without having to apply a new full set.
Blonde lashes can be extended without the need for dying or tinting. One of Trang's specialties is extending fine, nearly-invisible, barely-there eyelashes. Another specialty is fixing the lash work of other technicians from various salons. She happily accepts fixing of others' work and has become popular for this skill.
Only premium, high-quality lash products are used on clients. The perfect lash extensions are based more on technique rather than brand names supplies.
What is the application process like?Applying eyelash extensions should be painless, gentle, and relaxing. The client lies down comfortably on the massage bed. With their eyes closed, the technician applies single lash extensions to each individual eyelash. Clients should not approach lash extensions with nervousness or fear. Lash extensions is a relaxing procedure to enhance your natural beauty.
How long does the eyelash procedure take?
Depending upon the client’s natural lash consistency, a full set takes approximately 90 minutes up to 2 hours for unlimited extensions applied. Refills & touch-ups are from 45 minutes up to 1 hour.
How many extensions are applied for each application?This may vary for each client based on several factors including the amount of natural lashes the client has and the fullness they desire. For the basic look, most eyes generally have 40-100 lashes applied to each eye. For a more glamorous set of lashes, as many as 100+ extensions may be applied per eye. Please keep in mind that you must have lash hair in order to wear lash extensions. Each single micro-extension is applied to each of your own lash hairs. Lash extensions are not applied to the eyelid or skin.
How long will Trang’s extensions last?To maintain the full look, touch-ups & refills are recommended every 3-5 weeks. Some clients will want refills every 3 weeks, some clients every 6 weeks, some clients every 8 weeks . It depends on the individual. There have been some clients who come in for touch-ups at 11 weeks with half of extensions still left on. A refill or touch-up is required when at least 40% of extensions are still on. If less than 40% of extensions are leftover, then a new full set is recommended. When over 80% of extensions have shed, a full set will be required. Clients with oil-prone skin will require refills sooner since natural oils will disrupt bonding of the extensions.
How long do clients wear their extensions?Some clients request lash extensions for a special occasion or for vacation trips only. Most of Trang’s clients wear extensions on a regular basis for several years with refills & touch-ups every few weeks. With proper application technique, the health of natural lashes can be maintained with years of extension wear.
What products does Trang use? Is it safe?Over the years, Trang has tried and tested nearly every lash extensions glue brand available. She uses only the highest quality premium lashes on clients. A mixture of medical-grade glues (cyanoacrylate & latex-free) are used for long-lasting, gorgeous lashes. This allows lashes to stay on long without negative side effects.
