Can you get lash extensions after a lash lift?

2019-04-05T15:52:18+10:00

It's best that you wait 6-8 weeks so that the lashes are smooth enough to allow for correct bonding. On very lifted/kinked lashes, it can be difficult to get them to bond well/last properly. If your lash lift is a very gentle curl or has dropped significantly, then it should [...]
