Girl, where'd you get those lashes?

frequently asked questions

  • What are lash extensions?

    Also known as semi-permanent eyelashes, our extensions are made of a synthetic polyester that come in multiple lengths, thickness, colors, and curls to match your natural lashes. NKD uses synthetic polyester because it responds better to wear and tear than other materials and provides the least possible chance of an allergic reaction.

    The individual lash extension is applied to your natural lash using a medical grade, FDA approved adhesive. When applied properly, neither the lash nor the adhesive should touch your eyelid. Your natural lash sheds over time and our adhesive is designed to last until your lash naturally falls out. To prevent your natural lashes from prematurely falling out, we’ll guide you through proper care of your lashes during your no cost consultation and after your appointment.

    At this point you’re probably saying to yourself “wow, this sounds like a meticulous process”, and it is. A good lash artist is highly trained, licensed, and has countless hours of hands on training before they begin taking clients. Our master artists work hand and hand with our newer artists, perfecting their craft. At NKD, newer artists are hand selected to attend training. They already possess experience in the field and they have demonstrated certain qualities that are needed to turn their passion into an amazing lash experience for the client.

  • What are the benefits of lash extensions?

    Lash extensions are a real game changer. Each morning you’ll awake to flawless lashes without the need to use mascara, saving you precious time. With the right style to compliment your natural beauty, extensions will make you feel confident and your eyes will look absolutely stunning, all while maintaining a professional and natural look.

  • What types of sets do you offer?

    At NKD we offer the Classic Set, the Volume Set, and the Hybrid Set. We believe in show stopping lashes, but ones that maintain a natural and professional look while supporting a healthy natural lash. With so many different lash extension trends out there, we believe in specializing and perfecting these three client favorite styles that won’t damage your natural lash.

    Classic lashes are the “Queen” of all styles. Classic lashes are best for clients who already have good natural lashes, but want more length, creating a gorgeous and natural look. Volume lashes give a more dramatic and fuller look, but again maintain a professional appearance.

    Volume lashes are perfect for those clients who have sparse lashes, bald spots, or just want a more dramatic look. Volume lashes are significantly lighter than Classic lashes and the technique involves attaching 2-3 lashes per natural lash, creating a lighter, fluffier, and fuller look.

    Hybrid lash sets are a mixture of Classic and Volume lashes creating a fuller Classic set.

  • Are lash extensions safe?

    Yes….but just like with any service, we recommend researching a lash studio thoroughly before booking your consultation. If a lash studio doesn’t offer an initial consultation, we would recommend that you proceed with caution. The consultation is a chance for you to ask questions, make sure that you don’t have an allergic reaction to the adhesive, and to make sure that the end result will be exactly what you are looking for.

    One important question that you may want to ask is “Are these lash extensions or clusters?” Clusters are NOT lash extensions and are “clusters” of lashes glued directly to the eyelid, yikes. Although the initial result may look good, they could eventually become painful, promote ingrown hairs, cause a sty, and permanent loss of your natural lash.

    Original work not done by NKD

    With anything that quickly gains popularity, “cheaper” products that could potentially harm your natural lashes over time, do exist. At NKD we buy both direct from manufactures and from reputable distribution companies, never use cluster lashes, and during our free consultation we provide an adhesive allergy test.

  • How long do they last?

    A set with no fills will last somewhere around a month, depending on how well you take care of them, your natural lash cycle, and your lifestyle. 2-3 weeks is what is recommended for a fill and then you could wear them indefinitely. Lashes shed naturally and you might notice the extensions shedding more since they are thicker and longer than your natural lashes.

  • Do you offer any alternatives to help with my lashes?

    Yes. We offer lash lifts, lash tinting, and traditional strip lashes along with our popular new Unicorn Magnetic Lashes. Both the strip lash and magnetic lashes have numerous styles to choose from. Unlike the strip lash, magnetic lashes are completely reusable and applied using a special eye liner and not an adhesive. These are great for clients who are allergic to the lash extension adhesive, or for those looking to break out their lash game just on the weekends.
