At Siroki Lash Studios, we care about you AND your Lashes! So many people ask us what comes with wearing lash extensions … the commitment, is it worth it, how much upkeep is involved? First of all. Don’t worry! If we are being real there is a commitment to having lash extensions & the matter of whether or not it is “worth it” is up to the individual. This blog will explain what you have to avoid with lash extensions, and the realistic commitment you should expect to make to keep your lash extensions looking great. Ultimately think of this as the go to guide to help you decide if lash extensions are for you and your lifestyle, let’s get into it!

What to avoid when booking your lash extension appointment!

Getting lashes is NOT a spur-of-the-moment decision you must prepare.

  • Lash extensions retention is based on your lash artist, and you! We can apply them but after you leave us it is in your hands to take care of them! (find more info on aftercare in my other blog posts) Aftercare Blog Post
  • Remember… If the price is too low you gotta go! Do your research, often, people will try to skip out on the cost of education or quality products to lower their costs and grab more clients. Also, a professional Lash Artist with experience will charge accordingly for that experience if you do find a “DEAL” keep in mind, that it may be because that artist is new and make sure you are okay with that possibility. If the price is low or the service is so fast it sounds to good to be true. It probably is.


10 Steps to Take Before and After Your Lash Appointment

1. Look into the lash artist.

If you’re in double request proof of certification and a license. If the artist can not provide at least one of these two things, run for the hills! On Instagram, lash artists will typically include if they are certified and how many times they have been certified, meaning how many lash courses they have taken and passed in their bios. Keep an eye out for terms like “2x certified”. Look through photos of the lash artists’ work, check out reviews, and take your time before deciding who you want to see. You will be at this appointment for anywhere from 1.5 to 4 hours depending on the lash artist.

2. Plan to arrive at least 5-10 minutes early to your lash appointment.

This gives you enough time to address any final questions or concerns & always, always, always ask questions if you are unclear or worried about something! Bring photos of your desired look, show the lash artist examples of their work that you like, and communicate what you like and don’t like. This is so helpful to a lash artist. At the end of the day, we want to have a clear understanding of your desired look to deliver those results.

3. Allot yourself the proper amount of time for the lash extension service.

Let others in your life know you are going to be busy for a while. Lash appointments can last anywhere from 1.5 – 4 hours and your eyes will be shut the entire time. The perfect excuse to catch up on that beauty sleep, isn’t it? Some clients decide to take the time to catch up on a podcast, listen to mediations, take a nap, girl talk, listen to music, or just relax.

4. Be prepared to invest in a new makeup remover and facial cleanser the day of your service.

We are now talking to future you. So, you’ve taken the plunge and gotten lash extensions. Congratulations! They look amazing, and you feel like a brand-new person! Now that you’ve got them, it’s important to take care of them properly, so that you can enjoy your lash extensions for as long as possible.

At Siroky Lash Studios, we actually offer complimentary after care kits that contain a foam lash shampoo, a lash washing brush, and a card with a link to our website that answers any frequently asked questions and provides you with everything you need to know to properly care for lashes at home, with every new lash install so you don’t have to worry about what maintenance and care looks like for your lashes.

Lash extension aftercare is not difficult, but there are a few things you need to keep in mind.

  • First, be gentle with your lash extensions. They are delicate, and if you’re too rough with them, they won’t last as long.
  • Second, avoid oil-based products around your lash extensions. Oil will break down the adhesive that holds your lash extensions in place, so it’s best to steer clear of anything oily (including makeup removers) near your lash line. This is also why it’s important to make sure and wash those lashes daily. This ensures you wash away those natural oils that accumulate throughout the day and overnight and avoid eye infections due to unsanitary aftercare.
  • Third, brush your lash extensions regularly to keep them looking their best & in place. A mascara wand will do the trick – just be gentle!

By following these simple tips, you can enjoy your lash extensions for weeks or even months at a time.

5. Be sure that you have the time in your schedule to come back for lash touch-ups every 2-3 weeks.

Fill-in appointments are generally shorter and less costly if you keep up with them. Remember even if your retention is amazing if you come back at 4 weeks or more your artist will still need to remove grown-out lashes and that will take additional time so book appropriately.

6. Try a more natural lash look your first time!

You can always add more drama later on down the line. Remember they are long lasting but not permanent! The last thing you want is to wake up to two caterpillars sitting on your face when you just expected some extra length… Remember you can always add more lashes, but take it slow! Your perfect lash set will come in time. Lash extensions are perfect for customization and your ideal lash look will likely be a collaborative process with your lash artist.

7. If you are a habitual eye rubber you have to stop!

Rubbing and pulling your lashes will cause damage to your natural lashes and decrease how long your new set of extensions last. Not to mention, it is painful! If you rub your eyes too much or pick the lashes you will not have lashes for your lash artist to apply extensions to at your next appointment. This may result in you needing to take a break from lash extensions and using a lash serum to regrow your natural lashes.

8. Schedule that facial procedure 24-48 hours before your lash application appointment.

Facials can interfere with the lashing process due to product residue. You will lose your lashes if you go get a steamy facial right after your lash extensions have been applied.

9. No more waterproof mascara!

I suggest clear mascara, lash shampoo, or water if you must, it does the trick when you want to get the makeup residue off for an event!

Lash extensions exist to make getting ready easier. No need to add mascara. If you want more drama, just tell your lash artist.

10. Make sure you eat something before your lash appointment!

I always say eat, drink (not caffeinated beverages), and handle your business (yes, that business) before you get into the lash bed.
