WHAT IS AN APPOINTMENT LIKE AT BLOOM®?
Many people ask us what an appointment with Bloom® is like. You will be comfortably laying down with your eyes closed while Bloom® Eyelash Extensions are applied one at a time to your own natural eyelashes. There is no discomfort or pain involved in the procedure. In fact, most clients find it is so relaxing and comfortable that they fall asleep.
What are eyelash extensions And what is the difference between classic and volume?
Eyelash Extensions are individual strands of faux mink made to replicate a natural eyelash. Bloom® eyelash extensions lengthen and thicken your own natural eyelashes. The “classic” lash extensions are single strands that are applied to each individual eyelash, one by one or “volume” lashes which are multiple lashes applied to each lash. Whether you choose classic or volume lash extensions at Bloom® look and feel completely natural.
How long will a set of Eyelash Extensions last?
Eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your own eyelashes. Depending on your activity and day-to-day routine, refills should only be required every 2 to 3 weeks. The longivity of your extensions will vary based upon your natural lash growth cycle; if your hair grows fast, then so will your extensions, and fills will be needed more often. If you follow our instructions for caring for your lash extensions, your lashes will remain fuller longer. The average human eye sheds 5-7 natural eyelashes per day, this is 70-90 natural lashes within 2 weeks (half your natural eyelashes), this is why we recommend fills every 2 to 3 weeks.
Can I apply mascara to Eyelash Extensions?
Our beautiful lash extensions are designed to give your natural lashes an improved look of fullness so mascara is not needed. However, Bloom® offers a water-based powder mascara in each of our Bloom® Studios for those who feel the need, especially nearing time for the next refill. The mascara is made specifically for lash extensions. NEVER use regular mascara on your lash extensions or they will need to be removed and a full set will need to be applied.
Are bloom Lash extensions safe?
The Bloom® lash studio only uses professional grade adhesive which never comes in contact with your skin. Synthetic mink eyelashes adhere about 1mm away from your skin.
Can I swim in a pool, shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing eyelash extensions?
Yes, after 48 hours your can get back to your routine. If you swim make sure to rinse your lashes directly after. The chlorine is harsh and will remove your lashes. Minimize the chance of wetting the lashes for the first 48 hours. After that 48-hour period, the adhesive used to apply your eyelash extensions at Bloom allows you get them wet as needed. However, keeping away from extensive contact with water, moisture, steam such as in saunas or certain facials is recommended since it can begin to loosen the bond of the extensions.
What brand of lashes does Bloom® use?
Bloom® manufactures and offers the highest quality in products and adhesives on the market named Fringe®. Using a lash with just the right curl and signature look to give you that perfect look is an exclusive technique of Bloom®. We use a triple silk blended extension which is more flexible and more natural looking than the thick traditional plastic extension, this has also been referred to as "faux" mink. Our Fringe® line uses latex free lash pads and adhesives. Fringe® has many lash adhesives available including an adhesive for our sensitive clients.
How long does the procedure take?
Depending on the expertise and experience of the Lash Stylist and the number of lashes being applied, it generally takes between 90 to 120 minutes to apply a full set of Bloom® Eyelash Extensions. Touch-ups can be done in as little as 45 to 60 minutes.
