Flutter Eyelash Extensions Frequently Asked Questions


What is the Flutter lash service?

Flutter offers an innovative new treatment that lengthens, thickens and gives a curled finish to your eyelashes. They are applied by a process where one lash is applied to one natural lash using black glue making the lashes appear darker, longer and fuller. They are semi-permanent meaning they can be worn 24/7 and take away the hassle of applying mascara everyday.

What are the lash extensions made from?

The lashes are made from a synthetic polyester material.

How long will the lash extensions last?

The lashes will last the full natural lash cycle of the lashes they are attached to, provided the correct aftercare is followed. All the natural lashes are at different stages of their life cycle at any given time so will fall out at different times when they will be replaced by the growth of a new lash. The cycle is between 6 to 12 weeks so by this time your lash extensions will have come out but this will vary from person to person.

Flutter lash extensions can be worn on a continuous basis requiring maintenance every 3-4 weeks. Lashes can also be worn as a one off for a special occasion and can be left to fall out with the natural lashes or professionally removed by one of the Flutter Artists.

Do I need to have my eyelashes tinted before?

It is not necessary for you to have your lashes tinted prior to the application because both the adhesive used and lashes that are applied are black, giving a dark finish to the lashes. However, if your natural lashes are very pale it may be advisable to have a tint to help blend any fair lashes left un-extended and give a fuller look to the set. Tints should be carried out at least 24 hours before your Flutter appointment or they can affect the adhesive bond.

How long does the application take?

The Flutter Lash service usually takes approximately 1.5 to 2 hours for the initial set. This will include a full consultation to determine the look you wish to achieve. The infills take between 1-1.5 hours.

Can you describe the procedure?

The procedure is completely pain-free and so relaxing that many clients fall asleep. You will be lying down with your eyes closed while the Flutter Artist applies lashes to one natural lash at a time.

Can different looks be achieved?

Absolutely! We always carry out a full consultation taking in to consideration face & eye shape, make up looks as well as the quality of natural lashes. The extensions come in varying lengths, thicknesses and curls so your Flutter Artist can design lashes that suit your specific needs and the look you wish to achieve.

I wear contact lenses, is this a problem?

Definitely not. We have many clients who are contact lens wearers and they find extensions preferable to mascara as there are no flakes or bits to fall in to the eye. We recommend removing your contacts before the procedure but they can be put straight back in afterwards.

Does the Flutter Lash Service damage my natural lashes?

No, as long as the correct after care is followed. The Flutter lash extensions are bonded directly onto the natural lash 1mm from the base so it doesn’t touch the skin. This means it does not interfere with the natural lash cycle allowing it to grow and fall out as normal causing no damage at all.

Is the adhesive used safe?

Yes, it is specially formulated for use around the eye area and manufactured in the UK. Your eyes remain closed throughout the procedure and the adhesive is only applied to the natural lash and doesn’t touch the skin.

Can you take the extensions off?

Yes. They can be removed easily for you by one of the Flutter Artists. However, you must not attempt to remove them yourself as it may cause damage to the natural lashes if the correct procedure is not followed.

Can anyone wear Lash Extensions?

The lash extensions can only be applied to a natural eyelash. Therefore this treatment is not suitable for someone who has partial or complete loss of their natural eyelashes.
