The natural fibers used are human hair. In addition, the human hair is donated or sold for monetary value, which is received by multiple salons across Indonesia. We only source items ethically as we thrive to be 100% cruelty free! Once received the hair goes through a 3-step sterilization and cleaning process to ensure it’s safe for use on the eye.
Note, this process is only for our human hair lashes (Classic Collection). All other collections are handmade using high quality synthetic fibers to mimic hair texture and appearance.

HOW MANY TIMES CAN YOU REUSE A PAIR OF FALSE EYELASHES?
House of Lashes are individually handcrafted and made to last through multiple wears. General use will yield 10+ uses on average for our Classic Lashes and 15+ for our Lite, Luxe, Premium and Noir Lashes. Well maintained lashes will yield 18+ uses.
(TIP: Whenever you "undress" your eyes, remember to (1) gently remove the glue from your false lashes with makeup remover and (2) Store them back in their tray to maintain their natural shape.)
HOW DO I REMOVE MY FALSIES?
There are a couple of basic ways to remove your lashes, and tugging is NOT one of them! First, try removing one false eyelash by securely holding the lash at its base and, beginning at the outer corner, gently pull the lash towards the direction of your tear duct. Repeat this process with the other eye. Your false lashes should come off without much effort or discomfort when the lash is applied properly and not applied to your natural lash. If you are having slight difficulty with your lash removal, simply dab a non-oil based makeup remover onto the lash adhesive along your lash line with a cotton swab. After the adhesive has fully softened, lift the outer corner of the lash band and gently pull the lash inwards towards your tear duct.
IS EYELASH ADHESIVE INCLUDED WITH MY PURCHASE?
Eyelash adhesive is NOT included in your purchase. However, we do sell eyelash adhesive separately. Please visit our Lash Adhesive collection at https://houseoflashes.com/collections/lash-adhesive.
WHAT IS THE BEST REMOVAL FOR THE LASH ADHESIVE?
Waterproof makeup removers or makeup removers with an oil base are the best way to remove excess lash adhesive from your eyelids.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY FALSIES?
House of Lashes products are made for multiple uses but to ensure the longevity of your lashes here are a few tips to care for your lashes:
- Remove glue buildup after 3 – 4 wears. This can be done by holding the lash by the base and gently peeling off the excess glue with your fingers.
- When applying mascara, try to apply mascara to the natural lash first and not to the false lash. This will prevent build up and lengthen the longevity of your false lash.
- Store lashes in their original tray or in one of our lash cases to maintain the lashes shape and keep them clean.
CAN I GET MY FALSIES WET?
House of Lashes are handmade out of 100% human hair or synthetic blend. With human hair, once it gets wet, it is hard for it to maintain its curl and shape. For our synthetic blend lashes, some may withstand water however we do NOT recommend our lashes being fully submersed.
CAN I APPLY MASCARA ONTO MY FALSE LASHES?
Applying mascara to your false lashes is optional because no mascara helps you get more use out of your falsies. However, adding mascara gives you a more dramatic effect.
WILL THE FALSE EYELASHES HARM MY OWN LASHES?
No. When false eyelashes are (1) applied correctly with the proper adhesive and (2) removed safely and gently, there is no harm done to your own lashes. In fact, lashes have shown to become healthier from wearing false eyelashes because it replaces the need to wear mascara or curl your eyelashes.
WHAT LASHES WOULD BEST FIT ME?
House of Lashes creates a wide variety of lashes! The type of lash style does depend on what lash appearance you’re trying to achieve: natural, wispy, dense, or dramatic.
