Experience the LashMi difference!
Your eyes are VERY important because sometimes it is forgotten just how vital the eyes & eyelashes are; services are done differently here at LashMi.
LashMi does not do super quick in & out appointments, we believe in quality over quantity.
For every eyelash extension appointment (except "Express fills") your lashes will receive an included "Lash Bath" pre-cleanse prior to extension application to maximize retention as well as help maintain healthy eyes by preventing the chance of bacteria growth from accidental missed makeup, oils or residue which may have been left behind after any at home routine cleanses.
Your extension application is then carefully customized to each & every natural lash with the proper length, diameter, as well as style, to maintain the integrity of your natural lashes while they go through their natural growth cycles every 2-3 weeks.
Your natural lash growth cycle goes (in "simple visual terms") from "Baby stage", "Teen stage" to "Adult stage". In the "Adult" longest natural lash stage (last phase) , it is recognized as a "Resting phase" when your natural lash reaches its longest point. Once that happens the "adult lash detaches from the follicle & a new baby lash re-grows pushing the adult lash out taking it's place as the cycle continues for every single natural lash (as they are all in different cycles on any given day).
Therefore because your natural lashes grow & shed on a daily basis eyelash extensions require on going maintenance categorized as a "touch-ups/re-fills" just like nail or hair appointments. For semi-permanent eyelash extensions this becomes routine every 1-4 weeks depending on your natural growth cycle, as well as your daily lifestyle, however the average person needs a touch up every 2-3 weeks.
At LashMi every fill is basically a new customized full set, this is what you want since your natural lashes will constantly be growing & shedding. Because every lash is on its own cycle, you must remove those old grown out extensions & replace them by adding new extensions to keep a maintained full beautiful look.
If your eyelash extensions are not properly maintained with removal during fills, the grown out extensions can turn/ flip becoming top heavy risking the chance of prematurely taking that natural lash out of the follicle which causes permanent damage!
However at LashMi, Tiarra, pays special attention to detail making sure to do things right every time so your lashes can be worn long term with no risk of damage to the natural lashes! We do our utmost to get to know every client, always working with them towards finding the right lash treatment for every concern they might have.

Frequently asked questions
What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash Extensions are a popular new service and product that gives length and definition to your own natural eyelashes. It is a service that consists of isolating each individual natural eyelash and then applying a strand of synthetic eyelash coated in glue and then bonded together. The extensions are curved to replicate the natural eyelash and are absolutely perfect for special occasions or for day to day wear
What do eyelash extensions look like when applied?
For our "Natural" volume lashes with proper application, meaning 2-4 synthetic eyelashes fanned out then applied to one natural lash the look and feel is completely natural looking and real. Nobody will even be able to tell you have extensions. They will just think you were born with beautiful, long lashes!
For our Signature "Russian" or Glam "Mega" Volume lashes (5-20) eventhinner lashes are fanned to create more density & fullness without added weight, then applied to one natural lash the look & feel is light weight & fluffy, giving that extra hint of drama. These are more noticeable & can be compared to the look of strip lashes & are perfect if you are infront of a camera or see alot of people in person as it creates a more done up effect.
How long will a set of eyelash extensions last?
Eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes. Everyone's experience will differ based on day to day activities but over all touch-up should only be required every 2 to 4 weeks. Our glue does NOT contain latex or Formaldehyde, any fumes or irritants after application; a special waterproof bonding agent is used to be long lasting.
How often should I get touch-ups?
It's recommend getting a touch up every 2 to 3 weeks. This is the recommended time because your natural lashes shed and grow & new extensions need to be put on/replaced. If you wait too long your eyelash extensions will fall out & you will require a full set. Your natural eyelashes fall off every 45 - 60 days due to the natural growth cycle then are naturally replaced with the growth of a new eyelash. Other factors such as exposure to steam or touching your eyes a lot may cause the extensions to fall sooner. A touch up is needed to fill in any lashes that fallen or grow-out, touch ups average depending on your preferred time.
Can I wear mascara with eyelash extensions?
Yes you can with "Classic" extensions, however LashMi does not offer "Classic" eyelash extension services due to desire of wishing to COMPLETELY replace the need & want of mascara. Although if you like that "Clumped together lash look" a best recommendation is to use a "CLEAR" water based mascara with your volume eyelash extensions.
Are eyelash extensions FDA approved? Are they safe?
Currently the FDA is not regulating eyelash extensions because the eyelash extensions are applied to the natural eyelash hairs never touching the skin. The application process is pain-free & relaxing that most clients fall asleep during the procedure
How long will the service take and how is it done?
The application process for Volume lash extensions normally takes about 2 - 5 hours depending on the set you receive. You will lay comfortably on a massage table with your eyes closed & your eyelash professional will then apply an under eye gel pad to cover your lower lashes this also provides an under eye treatment. Then your natural lashes will be isolated until there is only one natural lash in view while the extensions will be applied to each individual eyelash on a hair by hair basis.
How do I choose the look I want?
Leave it to us! Eyelash extensions are available in a number of lengths and thickness. We normally consult with you first to see what type of style you are interested in. We also determine what your lashes can hold in regards to size. Each person's lashes will vary in strength & length. We take this into consideration when creating a look for you. The overall look of the lashes is ment to flatter your individuality, enhance your natural beauty & help maintain an "awake" youthful appearance.
