You know I’m already obsessed with my lash extensions. I can’t live without anymore! One year ago my best friend recommended me the first lash-certified beauty salon in Bucharest.

So, I decided to get my first lash extensions at . They become very popular in recent years because are the best way to shorten your daily makeup routine and add a little drama to my everyday look.

Here are some things you need to know before wearing Lash Extensions:

You must modify your regular routine to accomodate your new lashes.

According to Tabya specialists, there are several products you’ll have to give up like: mascaras, pencil eyeliners ( they can cause the lashes to tangle with each other), and oil-based cleansers (the oil can break down the glue).

Be aware that applying a full set of lashes takes about two hours!

Lash extensions can be maintained year-round with touch-ups recommended every three to four weeks. Everyone has different natural lashes, and depending on this condition, lash experts can only go a certain length or thickness. This is to ensure that your own lashes remain healthy. For example, if your natural lashes are on the shorter, thinner side, you won’t be able to get a crazy, dramatic Kim Kardashian look, because it won’t last.

During the procedure your eyes are shut the whole time, so NO glue will ever get into your eye.

To avoid any irritation, however, the first safety precaution you can take is to be sure that the glue is safe for your eyes and doesn’t contain anything that can harm them, like formaldehyde.

Additionally, it’s important to understand the difference between an allergic reaction and an infection. A licensed and experienced lash technician will not let an infection occur. If you’re allergic to the glue, you’re still going to be allergic. This doesn’t mean the glue is inherently harmful.
If the procedure is causing your eyes to tear or any discomfort, this is a huge red flag and you should certainly speak up. You may need to have your technician change the glue. Getting lash extensions should be a completely pain-free experience.


The lash maintenance must be done every three to four weeks to have a full look.
Lash extensions last through a full growth cycle of natural eyelashes, typically six to eight weeks. Each person’s lash growth is somewhat variable. I suggest light lash extensions redone at four weeks. I also highly recommend giving your lashes a 2-3 month break after a year of wear. Your lashes need to breathe in order to avoid further damage.

Lash extensions fall out over a certain period of time.
Since each lash extension is attached to a single eyelash, they will fall out naturally along with the natural growth cycle of each lash. There will be no problem, because is a natural effect.

But when an inexperienced professional applies lashes, he or she often applies one synthetic lash to three to four natural lashes, causing clumps or the lash to break and fall out. Of course, if you try to pull them out yourself , the lashes might fall out. THis is a big no-no. But if you avoid those two problems, your lashes should stay intact.

You can take shower or swim even if you are wearing lash extensions!

THe only thing you must be aware is to keep water away from your lashes for the first 12 to 24 hours after application. Water can weaken the adhesive before it is set and cause lashes to fall off.

There are also some products you should absolutely avoid, like: oil-based products or makeup removers and water-proof mascara. It’s very hard to remove and can actually pull off the lashes prematurely when trying to take it off.

Your natural lashes will not be harmed or damaged at all.

The biggest myth is that lash extensions ruin your own lashes. They do not. If applied correctly and properly, they are very safe. THey will not ruin the health of your natural lashes. If lashes are applied properly and to each individual lash, they won’t fall out. Just take care not to tug or pull on the extensions because this can cause lash loss and even damage to your natural lashes.

If you want to get lash extensions I can recommend you with confidence . Because is the best in applying lash extensions!
Finding someone who is certified to apply the lashes is definitely a must. Professionals use professional products and have been properly trained to apply the lashes without damaging your natural lashes or your eyes. Just like you would with a hairstylist, research who you want to go to and how long they have been working as a technician. Look at before-and-after photos, read reviews and always make sure they are licensed and lash-certified.

I can’t believe I waited so long before wearing lash extensions and I can’t even imagine how sad my natural lashes will look after they’re all gone. Since getting the eyelashes I have received lots of compliments thanks to
