The Ultimate Guide to Classic Eyelash Extensions : What to Expect & Other Options to Choose.

Are you considering getting classic eyelash extensions but unsure of what to expect? At The Wink Lab , located in West Chester and Phoenixville, PA, we specialize in providing stunning eyelash extensions tailored to enhance your natural beauty. This ultimate guide will walk you through everything you need to know about eyelash extensions, from the initial consultation to aftercare tips.


What Are Classic Eyelash Extensions?

Classic eyelash extensions are semi-permanent fibers that are individually attached to your natural lashes using a medical-grade adhesive. They are designed to add length, fullness, and curl, creating a dramatic yet natural look that mascara alone can't achieve.

The Consultation Process

At The Wink Lab , we start with a personalized consultation to understand your desired look. Our expert lash artists will assess your natural lashes and discuss the different styles, lengths, and curls available. This ensures that your extensions complement your eye shape and personal style.


Choosing the Right Style

There are several styles to choose from at The Wink Lab , including:

  • Wet Look Lashes: One extension per natural lash, ideal for a natural look.

  • Volume Lashes: Multiple lightweight extensions per natural lash, perfect for a fuller, more dramatic look.

  • Hybrid Lashes: A mix of classic and volume lashes, offering a balance between natural and voluminous.


The Application Process

The application process of classic eyelash extensions is relaxing and typically takes about 1.5 to 2 hours, depending on the desired look. Here’s what you can expect during your appointment at our West Chester or Phoenixville location:


  1. Preparation: Your The Wink Lab lash artist will clean your lashes to remove any makeup or oils.

  2. Protection: Eye pads are placed under your eyes to protect your lower lashes and skin.

  3. Application: Using precision and care, the artist will apply each classic eyelash extensions to your natural lashes with a safe, hypoallergenic adhesive.

  4. Drying: The adhesive will dry for a few minutes to ensure the extensions are securely in place.

Aftercare Tips for Long-Lasting Classic Eyelash Extensions

To keep your eyelash extensions looking fabulous for weeks, follow these aftercare tips:


  • Avoid Water for 24 Hours: Keep your lashes dry to allow the adhesive to fully cure.

  • No Oil-Based Products: Oils can break down the adhesive, so use oil-free makeup and skincare products.

  • Brush Daily: Gently brush your classic eyelash extension with a clean spoolie brush to keep them neat and prevent tangling.

  • Sleep on Your Back: This helps avoid pressure on your classic eyelash extensions and prevents them from getting bent or damaged.
