With a combined 20 years in the beauty industry, never have we seen a service go from being so amazing to so dangerous in such a short amount of time! Lash extensions are getting a bad rap and we are upset about it. With the realization that lash technicians, stylists, or designers were not receiving the right amount of education, CRLS Pro-Institute Training was born. Not everyone naturally has the precision skills required to apply lash extensions and education should focus on that theory.
CRLS is a system. The system is geared specifically towards making sure your lash application skills are surgical like the moment you leave the class. Lash application is a surgical like procedure! But not only does it require precision and attention to detail, we put the “style” back in stylist. Our revolutionary techniques are patent pending and trademarked and ensure the most beautiful results catered to each individual client. We are also members of the National Eyelash Education and Safety Association, an organization that helps to regulate the procedure and ensure the safest methods of eyelash extension application.

Questions About Lash Extensions?
WHAT IS THE APPLICATION PROCESS?
Eyelash extension application is a relaxing, spa like procedure. Coffee should be avoided as many clients tend to fall asleep. The procedure is usually preformed atop of a massage table or reclining chair. Your lashes will be cleaned, and then primed. Bottom lashes will then be secured with a safe eyepatch of sorts and the application will begin.
HOW LONG DO EXTENSIONS LAST?
Some of them may last for a couple months while others may shed within a couple days.
Each individual lash is in its very own growth cycle, most people may lose a few natural lashes every day, just as all of the hair on your body has its own specific growth cycle.
Your individual lash cycle, combined with how well you care for the extensions will determine how long they last.
It is very normal to have maintenance appointments scheduled every 2-4 weeks. Lash extensions are meant to last indefinately.
WHAT ARE THE PROPER CARE PROCEDURES FOR THE LASHES?
Do not get them wet for the first 24 hours (unless advised otherwise by your lash artist).
WASH your eyes daily with an extensions-safe cleanser to keep your lash line clean. Many clients tend to avoid cleaning the eye area. Do not scrub, but gently wash your eye area to remove any oil build up.
Only use water and oil free cleanser to clean the extensions. Oil breaks down the adhesive bond. Creams and serums should be applied sparingly.
Avoid using cotton swabs or pads that will leave lint and catch on your extensions.
Use of mascara or an eyelash curler is not recommended.
Do not rub eyes or pick/pull at your extensions.
Avoid sleeping on your face.
WILL IT DAMAGE MY LASHES?
When eyelash extensions are properly applied, they will not damage your natural eyelashes. Your natural lashes shed regularly and continue to grow back, the extensions will fall off with yours. Be mindful that through basic wear and tear, some extensions may pop off on their own, with out a natural lash attached. An inexperienced Technician will cause damage, not the extensions themselves. The extensions are applied with a special adhesive that is similar to what is used in the medical field for suture-less stitches. If a Technician is applying extensions that are too long or thick for your natural lash, this is a damaging process. Also, if your Technician attaches the extension to more than ONE of your natural lashes, and does not separate and isolate properly, it will cause damage to your future lash health.
IS IT FDA APPOVED?
The FDA does not currently regulate eyelash extensions, nor do they approve eyelash extension adhesive. If a company is claiming they or their products are “approved” by the FDA, they are sadly misinformed.
Eyelash extension regulations vary widely between countries, and even from state to state. In the USA, many states DO require you to be a licensed esthetician or cosmetologist in order to perform an eyelash extension service.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
The average lash Full Set takes 2-3 hours. The average Fill/Touch up takes from 1-1.5 hours.
WHAT ARE LASHES MADE OF?
The most common material for eyelash extensions is synthetic mink and silk, which are made from Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT). The extensions made for CR Lash System are created to mimic the natural lash hair. It is extremely soft and flexible and does not retain water. At this time, CR Lash system only uses synthetic mink lashes. Other options include human hair, and the controversial animal fur (mink, fox, and horse to name a few).
WILL MY EXTENSIONS LOOK LIKE A FAKE STRIP OF LASHES?
Lash extensions look exactly as if it were you natural lash extended from your eyelid. A skillful and precise application will ensure that there will be NO clumping and NO twisting. The application is a 1 to 1 lash procedure for classic lashes so they always look natural.
