At Studio Kanti, our well trained and meticulous Lash Artists ensure you look your best with custom created lash extensions to compliment your natural features. Whether you are looking for a natural look, a dramatic look, or anywhere in between, our lash artists will ensure the best look for you.
We offer various lengths and styles for Classic, Hybrid, and Volume Lash Extensions. At your appointment, your lash artist will assess your natural lashes and discuss the procedure with you before getting started. You will also be guided through proper aftercare to ensure the health and longevity of both your natural lashes and your extensions.
For best results, please ensure to show up to your appointment with clean lashes. This ensures the best retention for your extensions. If possible, washing your lashes very well the night before and avoiding the use of mascara the day of, is ideal. If that is not possible, your lashes will be washed at the start of your appointment to ensure they are perfectly cleansed for best retention.
**Please do not apply waterproof mascara at least 5 – 7 days prior to your lash appointment. If waterproof mascara is worn to the appointment, your lash artist will be unable to see you and a small fee may apply for your booked time.
Will lash extensions damage my natural lashes?
No, your natural lashes will not be damaged. However, many factors need to be considered, such as lifestyle and ensuring proper home care, for instance. Most importantly, not all lash artists are created equal, and it is important to ensure your lash technician is certified in his/her field. At Studio Kanti, our lash artists are fully trained and experienced with proper isolation of each lash. Therefore, when properly placed your natural lashes remain healthy without any disruption to your natural lash cycle. Your lash artist will discuss with you the importance of proper home care as well as recommend lengths and styles that your natural lashes will be able to withstand. Overall, we never compromise the health of your lashes to achieve a desired look.
How long will my lash extensions last? How often should I come in for a fill?
Your natural lashes go through their own cycles and will fall out on their own, taking the lash extension with it. On average, you lose 3 to 5 lashes a day, per eye. Therefore, depending on your lash cycle, your lash extensions could last anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks. If you are wanting a continual full look, a 2 week fill is recommended to keep them looking fluffy and full. Otherwise, a fill once every 3 to 4 weeks is a great option. Week 5 and 6 will be quite sparse.
Alternatively, if you are wanting extensions for a special occasion only, you can see your lash artist for a safe removal process at any point that suits you (usually after a few weeks of wear). Never pick at your lashes or pull them off on your own, otherwise you will risk damaging your natural lashes.
How long does the procedure take?
We never rush, and always ensure enough time is dedicated to each client for proper application and education on home care. We reserve 1 hour 45 min – 2 hours for a full set, and 1 hour for a partial set. More time is alloted for Hybrid Lash Extensions and Volume Lash Extension as our artist custom creates fans during your lash set. This takes time and precision. Please reserve approximately 2.5 hours for Hybrid sets and 3- 3.5 hours for Volume sets. Our Junior Technician will spend a little more time doing your lashes but the result and quality will be just the same.
The history of lash extension quality has come a long way. Improvements in lash adhesives and the weight of the lash extensions has developed over the years.
