Lash extensions are a great solution to replace your mascara and provide “I Woke Up Like This” feeling.

What are Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash Extensions are synthetic eyelashes that are individually adhered to the natural eyelashes. It creates a longer, thicker version of your natural lashes. There are three main types of Eyelash Extensions that you can get; Classic Eyelash Extensions, Volume Eyelash Extensions, and Hybrid Eyelash Extensions.


A Classic Full Set is a set of extensions that are made up of a singular extension adhered to one natural eyelash. Classic sets enhance natural beauty and provide a soft, elegant enhancement to your lashes.

A Volume Full Set is a set of extensions that is made up of multiple extensions adhered to one natural eyelash: known as a “fan”. Volume sets are infamous for providing a dark lash line and a more dramatic, glamorous look.

How do I take care of my lashes?

To keep your natural lashes healthy and your extensions looking their best, it is important to invest in aftercare and keep up with lash fills. Here at Paradigm, we provide a line of lash care by Xtreme Lashes which includes a lash cleanser and brush to remove oils, makeup and debris from your lashes and encourage healthy growth. We recommend scheduling a lash fill appointment at our Bel Air, MD salon every 2-3 weeks to maintain the lash set’s shape, remove and replace outgrown lashes, and fill in any lost extensions while you are away. Lash fill reservations also give you an opportunity to change anything about the set that you would like to.


Eyelash extensions come in all different shapes, curls, sizes, and colors to provide a variety of customized eyelash looks for you to choose from.

What should I expect during my reservation?

When you schedule a lash service at Paradigm Salon & Company in Bel Air, MD, come to your reservation with no makeup, comfortable clothing, and an idea of a look you would like to achieve. Arriving with clean lashes for your reservation will increase your retention until your next fill. Initial full set reservations usually last 2 hours and 30 minutes, including consultation. It is important that you are in comfortable clothing and able to relax during your service.


Prior to your reservation avoid caffeine if possible. Caffeine can cause twitching of the eyes which makes application more, this makes it more difficult to apply your extensions efficiently.
