The Cabana is your source for lash extensions in Sanford, NC. Eyelash extensions started in Asia and made their way West. Not to be confused with the self-stick false lashes of the past, these semi-permanent extensions are bonded on one by one by a certified lash stylist using tweezers and medical adhesive. The application takes 1 to 3 hours, 50-150 extensions in varying lengths are bonded to your individual eyelashes. The extensions stay on up to 6 weeks, depending on your natural lash growth/shed cycle. They give the eyes an instant lift without any needles or injections, allowing you to wake up with the look of mascara without the smudging.

Getting your first set of lashes is a relaxing enjoyable experience. You lay on a comfortable massage table with your eyes closed while your stylist applies your eyelash extensions. The application process can be wonderfully relaxing and rejuvenating or exciting and extremely fun. Clients often fall asleep then awaken to longer, thicker and more voluminous eyelashes or have fun laughs and great conversation throughout the process 
Your lash stylist will attach one of our light-weight eyelash extensions to one of your own eyelashes approximately 1mm from your eyelid with pharmaceutical grade adhesive. Your stylist will use a proprietary pattern of lengths and widths to develop the style you choose. Your first full set requires approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours. When your natural lash sheds, the extension will remain attached to the lash as it falls out. To maintain a full appearance, it is recommended to schedule a refill every 2-4 weeks. Your refills can be completed in approximately 45-60 minutes. 

Lash Extensions FAQ

How do I take care of my new lash extensions?

• Do not get lashes wet for the first 24-48 hours
• Avoid hot steam or sauna
• For longer lasting lashes, limit the use of running water directly on your lashes
• Avoid rubbing your eyes excessively
• Use water based eye makeup remover
• Do not perm your lashes
• Do not use a mechanical eyelash curler
• Do not pull on your lashes

Can I apply Mascara to my lash extensions?

Mascara is not really required since the extensions actually give the illusion of wearing mascara. In fact, one of the many benefits of eyelash extensions is that you do not need to use mascara. If you must apply mascara, however, only use water-based mascara. DO NOT USE OIL-BASED OR WATER-PROOF MASCARA as they can dissolve the bonding agent used and they can shorten the life of your eyelash extensions. Use care when washing off the water-based mascara and only use a water based eye makeup remover.

How do I prepare for this service?

You should thoroughly clean your lashes with a mild cleanser. Do not use oily makeup remover to clean your lashes prior to the application. Lashes should not be curled (unless directed otherwise by your technician) and all mascara should be removed.
