- FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS-
- EYELASH EXTENSIONS-
Absolutely! While your eyelash extensions can indeed be removed, we strongly advise having them professionally taken off at Winks Eyelash Boutique. We use a specialized cream or gel solution to safely dissolve the glue bonds, ensuring the health and integrity of your natural lashes.
Anyone with healthy natural eyelashes can sport eyelash extensions! The extensions come in various sizes and dimensions, catering to different desires and looks. Achieving the best results typically requires a lash line without significant gaps and minimal broken lashes.
While you can wear makeup, it’s essential to avoid oil-based products, including mascara, as they can weaken the adhesive, leading to premature shedding. However, water-based eyeliner and eye-shadow are fine. There are even products specially formulated for those with eyelash extensions!
Depending on your desired look and the number of lashes to be applied, the process can range from 1-2 hours. To give you an idea, around 50 lashes can be added to each eye in about an hour.
Not at all, when done right! With a trained professional applying the extensions, your natural lashes remain unharmed. To ensure they stay healthy, avoid rubbing or pulling at your lashes and always follow our aftercare instructions. For a deep dive into lash health, check out our eyelash guide.
Definitely! But we recommend waiting at least 24 hours post-application before diving in. After your swim, it’s a good idea to cleanse away any chlorine, salt, or other residues using our oil-free eyelash foaming cleanser.
Eyelash extensions can be a game-changer! They often reduce or even eliminate the need for mascara. Remember to stick to oil-free makeup products to protect the adhesive. Many of our clients find they don’t need as much eye makeup once they have their extensions – they’re just that transformative!
We recommend scheduling your appointment at least 48 hours before any special event. This window ensures that if touch-ups are needed or if any minor irritation occurs, there’s ample time to address it.
Simple steps can go a long way! Avoid rubbing or pulling at your lashes, stick to oil-free products, and keep your lashes clean by washing them gently and regularly.
- The lifespan of your extensions can vary based on your natural lash cycle and your care routine. They can last anywhere from 4-6 weeks, but to keep them looking fresh and full, we recommend touch-ups every 2 to 3 weeks.
While rare, some individuals might experience sensitivity or an allergic reaction to the adhesive or other products used. We always prioritize your safety and comfort, so if you’re concerned, we can perform a patch test 48 hours before your appointment to ensure compatibility.
We generally advise against it. Using a mechanical eyelash curler can crimp or damage both the extensions and your natural lashes. The good news? Our extensions come with a natural curl, giving you that eye-popping effect without any additional tools!
- EYELASH LIFT-
An eyelash lift is like a perm for your lashes! It gives your natural lashes an upward curl and a fuller look, making your eyes pop without the need for mascara or curlers. Think of it as a little magic trick for your eyes!
A lash lift typically lasts about 6-8 weeks. However, the longevity can vary depending on your individual lash growth cycle. The great news? You’ll have lovely, curled lashes from morning till night!
Absolutely! Your safety and comfort are our top priority at Winks Eyelash Boutique. Our experts are well-trained and use high-quality, safe products to ensure you get the best results.

It’s super simple! Just avoid getting your lashes wet for the first 24 hours, and steer clear from steamy environments like saunas. After that, you’re good to go!
A lash lift gives your lashes that lovely upward curl, while the tint adds a splash of color. Together, they give a more defined, dramatic effect – like you’re wearing mascara 24/7!
We offer a range of shades to best match your desired look. From subtle browns to deep blacks, we’ve got you covered. We can even help you choose a shade that complements your skin tone and hair color.
100% yes! We use tints specifically designed for the sensitive eye area. They’re gentle and safe, giving you that pop of color without any worries.

- EYEBROW LAMINATION-
Think of eyebrow lamination as a “perm” for your brows! It’s a treatment that straightens and sets your brow hairs in a uniform shape, making them look fuller, more defined, and beautifully sculpted. It’s the secret to getting that trendy, brushed-up brow look!
Absolutely! Whether you have thin brows, thick brows, or anything in between, lamination can give your brows that lovely, polished appearance. It’s a brow game-changer!
Not long at all! Typically, the treatment takes about 45 minutes to an hour. It’s the perfect pampering session for a busy bee like you.
Your freshly laminated brows will keep turning heads for about 4-6 weeks. The exact duration can vary depending on individual hair growth and aftercare.

- EYEBROW SHAPING-
Waxing might not be suitable for everyone. If you’re using retinol, certain acne medications, or have had recent facial treatments, waxing can irritate the skin or cause it to lift. It’s always best to consult with our specialists at Winks Eyelash Boutique to determine the right brow shaping method for you.
- Typically, every 3-6 weeks is a good interval. However, this can vary based on individual hair growth rates. We’ll be happy to guide you on a schedule that ensures your brows always look their best.
Waxing provides a clean, defined shape that can truly transform your face! It removes even the tiniest hairs, ensuring smooth results that last longer than most other methods.
Waxing quickly removes larger areas of hair at once and can create a sharp, defined brow shape. Tweezing is more precise and is often used for touch-ups and shaping individual hairs. Both methods have their benefits; the best choice often depends on your personal preference and brow goals.
- Threading is an ancient technique using twisted cotton threads to pull out hair from the roots. It’s precise like tweezing but can remove hair in rows like waxing. It’s a great option for those with sensitive skin or those who may not be suitable candidates for waxing.
Absolutely! No two brows are naturally identical, but our skilled professionals can shape and sculpt them to achieve a harmonious and balanced look.
Everyone’s brows are unique, and occasional gaps or sparse areas are common. Whether it’s due to genetics, over-plucking, or other factors, we can offer solutions like brow tinting or recommend products to create a fuller appearance.
Definitely! Well-shaped and defined eyebrows can lift your appearance, making you look more refreshed and youthful. It’s amazing what a difference a little brow magic can make!
While there’s no one-size-fits-all brow shape, our specialists at Winks Eyelash Boutique excel in analyzing face shapes and features to craft the most flattering brow shape for each individual.
While waxing often provides longer-lasting results than tweezing due to the removal of hair from the root, the longevity can vary based on individual hair growth. Threading also offers extended results. We can discuss the benefits of each during your consultation to find the best fit for you.
Everyone’s pain tolerance varies. While some might feel a slight sting with waxing or threading, others find it quite tolerable. We always prioritize your comfort, and our experts are trained to work with gentle precision.
