Instantly add length and volume to your natural eyelashes with eyelash extensions. During your eyelash extension treatment, our skilled technician will adhere synthetic extensions to your individual lashes. The slightly curved eyelash extensions create a natural and full look and are perfect for those who are tired of using mascara and eyelash curlers.
With Avenue Lashes customizable Eyelash Extension service, you can customize your extensions by curl type, length, and thickness. Choose your look from natural to glam—the options are endless!
What is an Eyelash Extension?
An eyelash extension is a synthetic eyelash that is attached to your natural lash using a specialized adhesive. Our NYC Eyelash Extensions are darker in color (2 shades are available) and add drama to lashes that are thin and light-colored without the need for mascara. Eyelash extensions also carry a slight curl which adds a natural-looking openness to your eyes.
Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent because they are affixed to the natural lashes. When an eyelash naturally falls out, the eyelash extension attached to it will also fall out. Brief touch-up appointments every 3-4 weeks can help to maintain a full look.
Do I need to remove my eye makeup before having eyelash extensions?
Yes, please remove all eye makeup (especially mascara) before your eyelash extensions treatment. This will allow the eyelash extensions to properly adhere to your natural eyelashes.
Avenue Lashes provides complimentary eye makeup remover in our makeup lounge area. Please arrive a few minutes before your eyelash extensions appointment if you wish to remove your eye makeup in the spa.
How long do eyelash extensions last?
NYC eyelash extensions generally last 4-6 weeks, depending on the growth cycle of the lashes, and the level of maintenance.
Do you have any tips for maintaining my eyelash extensions?
Please avoid wetting your eyelashes immediately following your NYC eyelash extension treatment. This includes showers, swimming, and sweating through exercise.
Avoid rubbing and scratching the eyelashes. Do not use harsh makeup remover or eyelash curlers as this may cause the lashes to break, fall off, or bend.
Having an eyelash extensions touch-up session (30 or 60 minutes are available) every 3-4 weeks will allow you to maintain the look.
Can I combine eyelash extensions with an eyelash perm?
No, we do not recommend combining our NYC eyelash extensions with an eyelash perm.
In the case of perming over extensions, the perm solution may dissolve or weaken the extension adhesive. In the case of extensions over a perm, extensions may not adhere properly, and may result in an unnatural and undesirable look.
Can I combine eyelash extensions with eyelash tinting?
There is no need to combine eyelash extensions with eyelash tinting. If you have light-colored eyelashes, our NYC eyelash extensions should be darker than your natural color. When they are affixed to your natural lashes, the eyelash extensions will immediately make them look darker…without mascara!
J P Lash Perm (Lifting of your natural Lashes)- Special $70
Toss out that cumbersome eyelash curler! An Eyelash Perm from our spa is a safe and effective way to keep your lashes curly all the time.
Our unique eyelash perm technique is authentically Japanese, imported from one of Tokyo’s hottest eyelash perm salons. Avenue's eyelash perm is proven to create a lasting curl in the most gentle way possible.
An eyelash perm from our spa can dramatically open up the look of the eye area and give the appearance of longer and fuller lashes, even before mascara.
Are eyelash perms safe?
Yes. Our technique and eyelash perm solution have been refined over a decade to work consistently and gently on your lashes. You should beware of the cheap eyelash perms out there (ex. Chinatown NYC) where the quick methods and harsh solutions can risk damaging your lashes.
How long does an eyelash perm last?
Despite the name, eyelash perms are not permanent. The results of an eyelash perm typically last 4-6 weeks, or the natural growth cycle of the eyelashes. When the permed eyelashes naturally fall out, the new eyelash hair will grow in straight (as it was before your eyelash perm).
What should I expect during my eyelash perm?
Before your eyelash perm, you will be asked to remove your contact lenses and eye makeup (complimentary makeup remover, lens solution and temporary lens cups are available in our makeup lounge).
One of Avenue's skilled technicians will discuss with you how intense or relaxed you want your eyelash perm to be. Depending on your preferences, the technician will select a set of custom-made eyelash perm rollers that will be gently and temporarily affixed to your eyelids. The eyelashes will then be curled over the rollers using our eyelash perm solution.
During your eyelash perm, which takes approximately 1 hour, you may lay back and relax, and take in the sounds of our soothing spa music, or bring your own iPod. However, you will need to keep your eyes closed and relaxed for the duration of the treatment for the best eyelash perm results.
How should I care for my eyelashes after an eyelash perm?
Similar to a regular hair perm, try to avoid wetting your eyelashes for 4 hours after your eyelash perm. We recommend applying Eyelash Conditioner to the eyelashes daily. Conditioning eyelash gel and mascara is available in the spa, by phone, and through our online store. Using Eyelash Conditioner regularly will ensure that your lashes stay healthy.
