Individual Eyelash Extensions are long-lasting eyelashes made from synthetic materials, real mink, or silk. The extensions are applied directly to the natural eyelash, using black medical-grade, semi-permanent adhesive. This gives natural lashes the appearance of being thicker and longer. BACK
When applied and cared for properly, the extensions will adhere for the entire cycle of hair growth, which is about six to eight weeks, depending on the individual. Of course, if you pull the synthetic lash, it will come off as well. Natural eyelashes are shed on a regular basis, which may result in multiple extension loss on any given day. This is completely normal, and when the natural lash is shed, the synthetic lash will fall with it. Touch-up applications will be necessary every two to three weeks to maintain a full lash line. BACK
There are a few simple steps to follow to keep your eyelashes looking beautiful. First, do not cleanse eyes, shower, swim, or use a steam or dry sauna for approximately 24 hours after application. Always be gentle with the lashes, and refrain from using an eyelash curler. Avoid all oil-based make-up products and eye make-up remover. Chances are, if clients are having problems with their eyelash extensions it’s because of their make-up remover - just urge them to use non-oil-based products, and to treat their lashes gently. It’s best to remove make-up with an oil-free make-up remover pad to protect the lashes. Additionally, your client’s should avoid using mascara after extensions are applied, unless it is an extension safe mascara. This is a lot to remember, so give your client an appointment card with these instructions printed on it. Think of it as their quick reference guide for staying beautiful. BACK
When doing a complete removal, you will need the following:
Put on the eye patches to help keep the remover out of the eye. Apply the remover with micro-brush wands, making sure it does NOT touch the skin, and let it sit for 10 minutes. Comb through the lashes gently taking off the eyelash extensions. Repeat until all are removed. NOTE* Be sure to tell the client to keep their eyes closed because the remover can sting the eyes. If remover gets in the eye, do not have them open their eyes. Use the warm wet cotton ball to wipe away the remover. Most importantly, just be sure to take your time and be as careful as possible.

Real Mink eyelash extensions are made from Mink hair and come from the tail.
Our Real Mink lashes are completely cruelty free!
They are simply brushed out of the tail.
Real Mink lashes are used to achieve an extremely natural look. Because Real Mink individual eyelash extensions are made from real hair and not made from synthetic materials, they have a higher quality and are more expensive, just like with hair extensions.
They look and feel exactly like real eyelashes. They are known for being super fluffy, light, and soft.
Real Mink lashes are easier to work with because they are so light and similar to natural lashes.
You have the ability of applying several mink extensions per natural lash.
They usually last longer because of their lighter weigh light accustom very well to the natural eyelashes. Real Mink lashes are the absolute thinnest, or (hollow), lightest, and most luxurious lashes.
They have a unique, shaggy and fluttery look and feel.
Our GotLash Real Mink lashes are curled by hand and sterilized. With certain brands Real Mink can loose their curl after wearing or after contact with moisture. Got Lash Mink Lashes keep their curl over longer periods of time! They have excellent longevity, and are great for stacking and capping.
Our Vegan Mink eyelash extensions are made of faux or synthetic mink and are the most popular and affordable extensions used by lash artists today. They are man made of poly-fiber. Like all lash extensions they come in a variety of lengths, diameters and curls.
These lashes are designed to imitate Real Mink eyelashes extensions and are well known for their flexibility.
Unlike some Real Mink extensions you may find, our Vegan Mink Lashes keep their curl forever and always stay as sharp and bold as they are brand new. They are extremely low maintenance and because of this they have been labeled a true favorite by all of our lash artists.
Vegan Mink lashes are a little bolder and glossier than the Real Mink and the Silk. Perfect for different styles and/or a little dramatic effect.
Our GotLash Signature Vegan Mink lashes have a deep black color with a semi-glossy finish. They are thicker than silk, but thinner than loose lashes. Made from precision manufactured synthetic poly/nylon. They create a natural velvety look whilst still giving more impact than most silk lashes do.
Some brands are difficult to pull off the tray. The slightly thinner base can reduce impact along the lash line. BACK
Cluster eyelashes are pre made fan eyelashes. These are not correct eyelash extensions and we do not recommend ever using them on clients! They are extremely heavy and have a knot at the end of them where they have already been glued together. This is way too heavy to apply to an individual natural eyelash. It will weigh on your clients natural lashes and cause serious damage to them, someone could even lose their lashes permanently. Some claim that Cluster lashes are the same as Volume lashes, but beware of this because they are completely different. Volume lashes are perfectly safe and wrap around the natural lash harmoniously, while Cluster lashes can be terribly damaging to the natural lash and have no flow or wrap for a natural look. They simply stick out in all directions and end up looking bulky and fake. Because of this, Cluster lashes are quite inexpensive, but Volume lashes are always worth it in the long run. Our GotLash Volume lashes are very precise and thin and give a natural flow to your client’s lashes. They will absolutely love them and they will not suffer any pain, weight, or damages from them at all! BACK
It depends. Each state, district, or providence is different. Be sure to check with your local regulatory department to ensure you are following proper procedure. It’s professional and it will save you in the long run. BACK
The short answer is, it depends. There are many factors to be taken into consideration. Your client consultation will determine thickness and style of application. Generally, for a full dramatic look, a set will require up to 60 or more lashes per eye. Please note that if you apply 45 or fewer lashes per eye, you’ll probably be seeing that client again within a few weeks for a touch-up. As such, an application of more lashes is recommended for a longer-lasting look. BACK
The product is completely safe - the primary ingredient in all of our exclusive adhesives is the same basic ingredient used by plastic surgeons to close wounds without using stitches. You should note, however, that improper application by an unqualified technician could damage the eyes or eyelids. That’s why your clients shouldn’t trust their lashes to just anyone. Similarly, if clients say they can apply synthetic lashes themselves, you can tell them that while it is possible, it is certainly not recommended. Not only is it extremely unsafe, but also the result is often clumpy and unattractive. BACK
Although the vast majority of people will have no reaction what-so-ever to the adhesive glue used during the procedure, their may be the rare case of itchy, dry eyes accompanied by swelling. If your client experiences this reaction, advise the use of an OTC product, or Benadryl. A prescription cream medication can be used such as Desoximetasone. It is always best to seek medical attention if needed. There are also adhesives made for sensitive eyes that do not contain formaldehyde. BACK
Eyelash fills or touch-ups should be done every 3-4 weeks. Typically, when then natural lashes start to grow out and the extensions are getting too long is a sign you are in need of a touch-up/fill. The touch up or fill procedures consists of first removing the grown out lashes and adding new eyelash extensions to all of regrowth. After four weeks is considered to be a full, completely new set, as the lashes will have completely out-grown their old set by then. BACK
