Semi-Permanent Eyelash Extensions

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The professionals at our Saks Hair & Beauty salon in Leeds city centre are experts at lash applications. But did you know semi-permanent eyelash extensions are ideal for daily wear, so you are not limited to just special occasions? And best of all, they are waterproof and durable so you can shower, swim and sleep in them. And with regular maintenance you can enjoy having beautiful, thicker lashes for up to 8-12 weeks at a time.

There is no need for mascara and each lash is naturally curled so there is also no need for an eyelash curler either.

Our specially trained and certified resident therapist will make your lashes thicker and longer by applying each individual eyelashes directly to your own natural eyelash. This is done with a specially formulated bonding agent. Like your nails and the hair on your head, individual eyelashes grow out on a continuous cycle of replenishment.

So you can increase the time you can keep your lashes with top-ups ever 2-3 weeks.


How long do the lashes last?
Generally eyelash extensions can last up to 3-4 weeks from application. The lifetime of your lashes depends on your hair growth cycle and lifestyle. A regular maintenance programme every 2-3 weeks can extend the life to 8-12 weeks.

Can I wear normal make-up?
Yes, with recommended mascara and eyeliner. As some brands of make-up have high oil content, it is not advised you use waterproof mascara.

Are the lashes good for holidays?
Yes, perfect! You can swim and shower with no problem. Your eyes will always look glamorous and give the appearance of wearing mascara.

Can I use my normal skin care products?
Yes, providing you avoid the eye area as any product containing oil will loosen the lash adhesive.

Is it uncomfortable to have them applied?
Not at all, in fact most people enjoy the experience of relaxing for the hour and a half!

Do I have to keep them maintained?
Maintenance is not necessary if you are having the lashes applied for a special occasion or holiday. The lashes will fall gradually, and eventually over time you will be back to your own lashes.

What is the maintenance program?
Many people like their eyelash extensions so much they want to continue wearing the lashes indefinitely. This is achieved by visiting us every 2-3 weeks to top-up any of the lashes that have fallen out naturally.

How long can I wear the lashes for?
You can wear them for as long as you want. The only recommendation is that a fresh set is applied every 10-12 weeks.

Can I have them if I wear contact lenses?
Yes. Although we recommend you remove contact lenses before having the eyelash extensions applied, just for the duration of the treatment.
