WhipLash Extensions is dedicated to making sure you have beautiful eyelashes.

How important is it for an eyelash technician to be properly trained?

We cannot stress the importance of choosing an eyelash technician who has been taught by a qualified and experienced person. There are many eyelash extension operators who claim to have been professionally trained, but have been self-taught and use poor quality products purchased on e-bay. This can be disastrous for your eye health. Please do your research thoroughly, and ask many questions before choosing an eyelash technician.

Who wears eyelash extensions?

You don’t have to be a celebrity or model to wear eyelash extensions. Normal everyday ladies love eyelash extensions and can’t bear to be without them. WhipLash Extensions clients include nurses, beauty therapists, surgeons, dentists, lawyers, financial advisors, mums, detectives, dancers, business owners, nail technicians, forensic chemists, university students, hairdressers, police women and many more wonderful people.

How are the eyelash extensions applied?

A single natural eyelash is isolated, and a WhipLash lash is glued to the top of your own natural eyelash approximately 1mm from the eyelid. Neither the glue nor the lash has contact with the skin.

How long does the application take?

The procedure will take approximately 1 hour for both a full set and a fill. It is a meticulous procedure that requires patience and concentration, so it should not be rushed. You relax with your eyes closed, and there is no pain, as this is a non-invasive procedure. Often, clients are so relaxed they fall asleep.

How are the lower lashes held down?

At WhipLash Extensions, it is important that our clients are comfortable. Therefore, we use soft under eye pads specifically designed for eyelash extensions. We never use surgical tape or lash tint paper, which can be uncomfortable for the client.

Do eyelash extensions make my own lashes fall out?

No; this is a myth. Eyelashes have cycles, and are constantly being replaced like your hair. If you pull on an extension lash and pull out your own natural lash, there will be no new lash ready to grow to take its place. This results having to wait 6-8 weeks for that lash to grow. The secret is this: be kind and gentle to your lashes, and they will be perfect.

Can I still wear eye makeup?

Yes, but you won’t need mascara, and you may even find you won’t need eyeliner! You can still use eyeliner and eye shadows as usual, but remember to remove them with a product that does not contain oil of any kind, as this will affect the glue.

Narelle recommends removing eyeliner and eye shadow using a damp cotton bud and a small amount of eye make-up remover, and gently running it along the eyeliner to remove it. To remove eye shadow, wet a cotton wipe and eye make-up remover and gently remove eye shadow in a side and upward movement–not down onto the eyelash extensions.

Wiping down towards the lashes will cause a build up of makeup on the lashes and may lessen the life of them.

Also, using a clamp eyelash curler is not recommended, and will lessen the life of your eyelash extensions and perhaps damage them. You can however use a heated eyelash curler, but do not over use it only using it when necessary. DO NOT PERM YOUR LASHES.

How long do they last?

Approximately 2-4 weeks if you respect your new lashes and take care of them.  Remember this is a semi-permanent beauty procedure.  Do not be duped by those who promise “permanent” extensions or attachments that last for 2+ months. A real lash’s life cycle is around 25-28 days, and as yours grow and fall out, so will the ones we attach. If your hair and nails grow quickly, that may indicate that your lashes also are growing, shedding and renewing themselves quickly, so you may find that your lashes will not last as long as someone whose hair growth is slow. Your lifestyle and what work you do will also make a difference how long they last. If working in the food industry, where there is a lot of heat, steam and oil may not last as well as someone who works in an air conditioned office. Also, certain medications may affect the longevity of your lashes.

I had eyelash extensions applied a few days ago and a few lashes have fallen out – why?

As explained above the lash has a growth cycle 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 natual 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.

What are fills, why do I need them, and how often do I need them?

Fills are when the natural eyelash has fallen out (due to the eyelash cycle) and there has been an extension lash applied to it.  You will require fills every 2-4 weeks if you would like to achieve a consistently full fresh set of lashes. At WhipLash Extensions, we take the time to remove any eyelash extensions that have either grown out to much, or are not sitting correctly.  Please note that we do not stack the lash extensions as other operators do. Please refer to Eyelash Pricing.  For fill bookings, allow approximately 1 hour.

Do the lashes come in different lengths and thicknesses?

Yes. Because WhipLash Extensions specializes in all things eyelashes, we supply to other eyelash extension operators and therefore carry a large range of lashes.  Lengths available are 5mm – 15mm, in black and coloured lashes in purple, navy, pink, red and green used as highlight amongst the black lashes in “J” curl.  Also available and extremely popular with WhipLash Extensions clients are the thicker .20mm and .25mm thick lashes. WhipLash Extensions also uses “C” and “D” lashes. The thicker lashes are artfully placed along the lash line. Specialty lashes are now very popular in Y  lashes which create double  the amount of lashes giving the look of thickness and volume. During the application a mixture of lengths and thicknesses are used – shorter lashes being used on the inner eye area and gradually increasing in length towards the middle and outer corners.  Unlike other eyelash extension operators who only stock three lengths, we understand that one size does not fit all. We apply what our clients request, and we tailor to suit each individual client. If you have a specific request, please discuss this with your eyelash extension technician on the day of your appointment.

Is the eyelash glue and glue remover safe?

Yes, having your extensions applied by someone who has been correctly trained is safe. Beware of untrained people who claim they have been professionally trained. Because we specialize in all things lashes, we take great care to ensure that the adhesive and adhesive remover does not come in contact with the skin or eyes. The glue used at WhipLash Extensions is a high-quality, fast-drying glue which does not give a clumped look. As the glue is being used around the delicate eye area, it is important to only have eyelash extensions applied by a trained and qualified eyelash technician.

Are eyelash extensions suitable for everyone?

Anyone of any age can have eyelash extensions applied as long as there is a natural lash to glue the extension onto. Ladies who have undergone chemotherapy and their lashes are starting to grow back also love eyelash extensions. Celebrities such as Britany Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Hillary Duff, Paris Hilton, Tyra Banks, Eva Longoria and Victoria Beckham all wear eyelash extensions.  They are also suitable for people who wear contact lenses and glasses. We have applied eyelash extensions to clients as young as 15 years old and as mature as 83 years old.

IF YOU HAVE AN EYE INFECTION OR HAVE RECENTLY UNDERGONE AN EYE OPERATION OR COSMETIC EYE SURGERY, IT WOULD BE BEST TO WAIT UNTIL THE EYE AREA HAS COMPLETELY HEALED.

Why should I get eyelash extensions?

  • It will cut your beauty routine time down in the mornings
  • No running or streaking mascara
  • Eyelashes will appear longer, fuller and darker
  • Your eyes will look bigger, more defined and gorgeous even with no make up
  • Great for people who wear contact lenses
  • Perfect for brides, mums on the run and busy people
  • Ladies who can’t wear mascara

Is there any reason why I can’t have eyelash extensions applied?

It is suggested that if you are an eye rubber (usually due to allergies such as hay fever), or if rubbing your eyes is just a habit, or in the past you have experienced sensitivity around the eye area after using skin care or makeup, or generally having sensitivity around that area, extensions may not suit you. If you use prescribed medicated eye drops or ointment, this may coat the lashes and cause them to clump.

If you are unsure, please contact the salon to discuss it.

Can the eyelash extensions be removed?

Yes, at any time for any reason they can be removed however there will be a removal charge. Refer to prices.   The extension are easily removed by using a glue remover and is safe and will cause no harm to your natural lashes.

Does WhipLash remove extensions applied by another salon?

Sadly, eyelash extensions are being applied by people who have had no training or are using cheap products. WhipLash Extensions is always happy to remove lashes that have been applied elsewhere. If you choose not to apply new lashes, there will be a removal charge. If you are having lashes removed and reapplied by us, there is no charge for the removal.

Can WhipLash repair botched extensions?

At WhipLash Extensions, we prefer not to mix their work with other people’s work, so it is advised that you either allow your extensions to naturally come off or contact WhipLash Extensions 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 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 at WhipLash Extensions.

How do I prepare for my appointment?

If you have extremely fair eyelashes, it is recommended to have them tinted before your eyelash extension appointment (we offer this at WhipLash Extensions). Preferably arrive with no mascara, and do not perm or curl your eyelashes before your eyelash extension appointment. If you wear contact lenses, please bring your contact lens case as your lenses will need to be removed.
IF YOU HAVE RECENTLY HAD YOUR EYELASHES PERMED, EYELASH EXTENSIONS CANNOT BE APPLIED UNTIL 3 MONTHS AFTER THE PERMING PROCEDURE.
