Human Hair

Eyelash extensions made of human hair are first cleansed and sanitized, then shaped to mimic eyelashes. With a light, feathery style, human hair extensions have the most natural look and feel, lasting longer than other extensions due to their light, porous texture. Ideal for those who want an extremely natural look and feel.

Siberian Mink

Made of 100% Siberian mink, these cruelty-free extensions are gently combed off of live minks, sterilized and are 100% hypoallergenic, suitable for those with sensitive skin. Fine, soft, lightweight and flexible, mink lashes offer a feathery, natural look, and offer a porous texture that adheres better to the natural lash than synthetic extensions. Ideal for those seeking a more natural look than faux mink or silk.

Faux Mink

These synthetic extensions are also light, soft and feathery and have slightly more volume than real mink lashes. Faux mink extensions are 100% hypoallergenic. Ideal for those seeking a bolder look with a stronger curl.


These super-soft synthetic lash extensions are wider at the base and superfine at the tip. Due to not being quite as comfortable, these lashes are recommended for special occasions rather than those wishing to return for regular fills. They are 100% hypoallergenic.S


Lash Boutique carries lash extensions with varying levels of curl from slight to extreme. Your lash stylist will assess your eyelashes and determine the type of curl that is right for you.

d curl

Our most extreme curl, these look best on those with a lot of natural curl, allowing the extension to sit properly on the natural lash.

L curl

This curl is for those with straight lashes that grow down or those with deep-set eyes. The curved part of this lash picks up the lashes growing downward, naturally opening up the eye.


The thickness of your eyelash extensions will affect the overall volume. We offer Thick (.15 millimeters in width) for a more natural style and Super Thick (.20 millimeters in width) for a more dramatic effect. A combination of both can be used to customize your look.



Our eyelash extensions range in length from 6 to 15 millimeters. The proper length of extensions for each individual varies depending on the length of your natural eyelashes. The longer the natural lash, the longer the extension can be.


 Eyelash Extensions Colors // Lash & Beauty Lab

Individual eyelash extensions come in a variety of colors. Stand out with brightly colored lashes, or go subtle with our traditional lashes. Brown eyelash extensions create a gentler, more natural look compared to black — especially for those with a fair complexion. Colored extensions are a fun way to add a little something different to your eyes and enhance eye color. Choose one color or mix a few with black extensions.
