Our answers to frequently asked questions
Eyelash extensions are a cosmetic beauty treatment used to enhance the length, thickness, curl, and overall appearance of natural eyelashes. These extensions are typically made of synthetic materials or natural fibers, such as mink, silk, or human hair. They are applied to individual natural eyelashes using a specially formulated adhesive.
The process involves a trained technician carefully attaching each extension to a single natural lash. This creates a fuller, longer, and more defined lash line, eliminating the need for mascara or eyelash curlers. Eyelash extensions come in various lengths, thicknesses, and styles, allowing individuals to customize their look based on their preferences.
Eyelash extensions can last several weeks, depending on the natural lash growth cycle and aftercare practices. Regular touch-up appointments are recommended to maintain the desired look. They have become a popular choice for those seeking to achieve a glamorous and low-maintenance appearance for their lashes.

The choice between these lash sets depends on your personal style, preferences, and the level of drama you want to achieve. It's essential to consult with a qualified lash technician who can assess your natural lashes and recommend the most suitable lash set for your desired look and maintenance routine.
We refrain from employing a strict "lash counting" approach, as we understand that every individual and eye is distinct. Instead, we tailor our lash extensions to match your desired look, adding as many lashes as necessary to achieve your desired appearance. Our diverse range of lash set options includes Classic, Hybrid, and Volume, allowing you to choose the style that best suits your preferences.
A lash lift, also known as a "lash perm," is a beauty treatment designed to enhance the appearance of natural eyelashes. It aims to give your lashes a longer, lifted, and more curled look without the need for eyelash extensions or daily use of an eyelash curler.
Lash lifts done at Athena's Beauty typically last 6-8 weeks with proper care.
