With a myriad of mascaras on the market, there’s no question that length, fullness, and bold lashes are a desirable thing. For some, treatments and growth serums are the solution. For others, endless dollars of product experimenting may provide the excitement you seek. However, eyelash extensions are quickly becoming the go-to rage.
With the growing popularity, our team would like to take this moment to answer some of the most commonly asked questions concerning eyelash extension application and expectations.
What, exactly, are eyelash extensions?
Lash extensions are a way to enhance your lashes without the need for cosmetics. These fibers are individually attached using a specially formulated semi-permanent glue to make your eyelashes appear longer, fuller, and darker.
Are there different types of extensions?
Yes! In general, there are three kinds of eyelash extensions: synthetic, silk, and mink. While no choice will outlast the other, there are considers to be had when choosing which is right for you. For example, if you have known allergies to cats, you should steer clear of mink. However, mink and silk tend to look more natural, while synthetic lashes give a bolder appearance.
If the choice seems overwhelming, not to fret! Most salons schedule a consultation beforehand to evaluate, answer any questions, and determine which type is most suitable for you.
Do eyelash extensions damage your natural lashes?
No! With the proper application from an expert professional esthetician, eyelash extensions will not ruin your natural lashes. If you’ve heard horror stories, they come from improper application or the incorrect type of lash, which often leads to damage.
How long is the application process?
While the total time varies upon the unique application, many sessions are complete within two hours. This timeframe varies depending on the number of lashes applied.
