Eyelash Extensions are the perfect choice for every day wear and are great for special occasions like weddings, formals, birthdays, holidays, etc, to look and feel beautiful with longer, thicker eyelashes. Single Eyelash Extension applications last up to six weeks, depending on your lash cycle and aftercare. With regular infills, you can have eyelash extensions for as long as you want. Available in varying lengths, curls & volumes, Our lash technician  at Cocoa & Cream can tailor your eyelash extensions style specific to you.

A classic set of lash extensions is a natural look and is perfected by using an advanced single strand application technique, applying synthetic lashes hair-by-hair to each individual lash which is undetectable to the naked eye.

2D-3D Volume sets give even natural-lash-challenged clients the option for volume they have never had before! Opting more for volume rather then length. Volume Lashes is a revolutionary lashing technique where 2 -3 super fine extensions are applied to one single natural eyelash – SAFELY – creating a soft and full look. Whatever your lash look, volume lashes are suitable for everyday wear and are super full and fabulous.

Natural eyelashes have a cycle of 4-6 weeks and we generally loose around 3-5 natural lashes per eye everyday as part of this cycle. Individual eyelash extensions are grafted to every resting eyelash, so not to damage baby lashes that are still growing. Each set of extensions has the potential to last up to 4-6 weeks with proper aftercare, however you will find that your lash extensions will require an infill at 2-3 weeks, with the replenishment of your natural lash cycle, to keep your extensions looking thick and full.
