Lashes &Brows

Lash and brow services are a hit sensation in today’s culture. Maybe you plucked the death out of them to keep up with past trends or struggle with them being sparse or light-colored. Either way, thick, bold brows, and lashes are the obsession of eyes everywhere. Look no further Folawns has the all things lashes and brows!

Brows

Waxing gives the brow a pleasing shape which can make your eyes appear brighter, more vibrant and give your face a more lifted look overall.

 

Tinting adds custom-blended color to lashes and brows for eye-catching glamour or to create a more unified look for those whose hair and brow colors may differ slightly.

 

Brow lamination involves the “perming” of your eyebrow hairs to provide a fuller, more even look. It can also help keep them in place after washing off any cosmetics you may wear. 

Frequently Asked Questions for Lash Extensions

"Do you take new clients with lashes currently from another artist?"

  • Unfortunately we do not do work over another lash artist. You must have them removed prior to receiving a new set at Folawns. It takes quite some time (many years of practice) to become advanced enough in the lash industry to achieve proper application and results. Thus removing someone else’s lash work takes longer and requires more work/product than a regular fill, and tracking our own retention is easier when we aren’t mixing our work with another techs. 

 

"Why don't my lashes look like the photo I showed?"

  • Every lash style and application is unique to you, with the health and integrity of your natural lash in mind! ​Your lashes may not look exactly like the photo you showed our technicians or what was requested dur to:

    • Different eye shape​.

    • Different lash curl.

    • Thicker or thinner natural lash line.

    • Longer or shorter natural lashes.

"Will lash extensions damage my natural lashes?"

  • When properly applied, no. The only cases in which natural lashes are damaged from lash extensions are:​

    • Improper amount of adhesive​.

    • Applied too close to the skin. 

    • Applied to multiple natural lashes.

    • Extensions are too heavy or long for natural lashes.

"Why do I need fills?"

  • Refill appointments are required for maintenance of the lash extensions. You can expect to lose anywhere from 2-8 natural lashes a day. In a week you are losing anywhere from 15-55​ lashes attached to the extension. By week 2 that brings you to losing anywhere from 30-110 lashes. Refills are expected to be done when you have:

    • 50-60% of lashes left​.

    • Roughly every 2-3 weeks.

  • Refill appointments do not just add lashes on, we also remove outgrown or twisted lashes. This is why we ask you come to your appointment with no less than 50% of lashes. If you come with 50% or less of your lashes still attached, an additional fill may be required or a full set.

"Why aren't my extensions lasting a long time?"

  • There are many reasons that can happen, depending on the time of the year - you could be be experiencing a lash shedding  cycle.​

  • Other reasons include:

    • Use of oils on skin. ​

    • Improper cleansing.

    • Getting your lash extensions wet within the first 24 hours of application.

    • Brushing your lash extensions too hard.

    • Sleeping on your new lash extensions.

    • Hormonal changes.

    • Vitamins or medications (Examples: Fish oil, Biotin).

    • Exposure to extreme heat (Saunas, steam, hot showers).

 

After Care For Lash Extensions

  1. First 24 hours: no water, no sweating

  2. Stay away from oils (oils break down lash adhesive).

    • This includes skincare products, eyeliner, mascara, fake tan, setting spray, makeup removers.​​

  3. Wash lashes everyday

    • Washing the lashes daily ensures retention and cleanliness ​.

    • Lash shampoo removes oil, dirt, makeup, dead skin buildup, and bacteria.

    • Wash directly after exercising, crying, or swimming.

  4. Do NOT mess with your lashes.

    • Do NOT pick, pull, tug or yank on lashes.​

    • Do NOT tint, perm, or use a lash curler on your lash extensions.

    • Lash extensions are attached to your natural lashes, pulling on them can pull out your natural lashes.

  5. Do NOT sleep on your lash extensions.

    • If you sleep on your side or face, invest in a silk pillowcase and/or a contoured eye mask.​

    • Sleeping on your lash extensions can cause premature lash loss, and altering of lash curl.
