6 Questions You Should Ask Before Getting Lash Extensions

Whether you’re getting eyelash extensions for the first time or are on the hunt for a new lash professional, it’s important to ask your potential stylist questions before you set your appointment. Not only will these questions help you get the lashes of your dreams, but they’ll also help you keep your eyes and natural lashes as safe and healthy as possible.

1. Where Did You Receive Your Lash Training?

You only have one pair of eyes and lashes, so it’s important that your lash professional knows how to keep them safe. Before creating your appointment, ask what formal training they have, what company they trained with, and ask to see their certification. Once you have this information, do your own research to find out more about the company’s training, history, and reputation. Not sure which companies are the real deal? Look for how long they’ve been in business and what awards they’ve won. As the first and most awarded lash extension brand in the world, NovaLash set the standard for high-quality lash training and products. 

2. What Are The Ingredients In Your Lash Adhesive?

Your lash professional should know what ingredients are in the adhesive and why. If your lash artist can’t answer this question, it’s a red flag. To protect the health of your eyes, find a lash professional who uses formaldehyde-free products. If your lash artist exclusively uses NovaLash, you can rest assured each product is made with formaldehyde-free, high-quality, and safe ingredients.

3. What Kind Of Lash Extensions Should I Get? 

Lash extensions can range from natural to dramatic, so it’s a good idea to discuss your lash goals with your stylist. If you’re not sure what look you like best, find a professional trained in multiple styles. 

4. How Should I Care For My Lash Extensions? 

Don’t save the aftercare conversation for after your appointment – the instructions your lash stylist gives can tell you a lot about the quality of products they use. Eyelashes are hair, and just like the hair on your head, it’s important to keep them healthy with regular cleaning. If your stylist tells you to avoid washing your lashes, walk away. Instead, look for a stylist that uses an immediately oil-proof, waterproof, and sweatproof brand, like NovaLash. 

5. What If I Have Sensitive Eyes? 

Don’t let sensitive eyes stop you from getting lash extensions. With the right application and products, most people with sensitivities can get NovaLash extensions without experiencing irritation. Talk to your lash professional about using sensitive, non-irritating eyelash adhesive and products.

6. How Often Do I Need Lash Extension Fills? 

Lash extensions are an investment, so make sure you understand the full financial obligation of the upkeep. To maximize your budget (and save yourself some time!) choose a long-lasting brand like NovaLash. Unlike other brands, which need to be filled every 2-3 weeks, NovaLash allows you to go up to 8 weeks between appointments.
