Eyelash extensions enhance your beauty by giving you natural-looking lashes that are longer, fuller and darker than your natural lashes without the fuss of mascara. Eyelash extensions are super popular among celebrities because they can offer that glam or natural look without much effort. Lash extensions are no longer only for the elite celebrities, you too can have this glamorous look. Extensions are perfect for everyday wear as well as special occasions. They brighten and open your eyes.
In order to create a customized look for each client, eyelash extensions come in a variety of lengths, thicknesses, color and degree of curl to design the look and style that best fits each individual client. The client’s eye shape, condition of natural lashes, lifestyle and preference are taken into account when designing a look and style. You can choose the basic black lash extensions. Or, how fun would it be to add some colored tips via lash extensions? It’s like ombré for your lashes.
There are three types of eyelash extensions. They come in synthetic, silk, and mink quality eyelash extensions. With semi-permanent eyelash extension, individual eyelash extensions are intricately applied to one individual natural lash at a time with premium quality grade glue that is flexible and quick drying. When properly applied, you will not be able to feel them and they will not damage your natural lashes.
The eyelash extension process is performed by an expert that is extensively trained and licensed in the application of individual eyelash extensions. The eyelash extensions process can take an hour and a half to two hours to apply a new full set. The lash stylist will apply 80-120 individual lash extensions per eye. Proper care and precautions needs to be taken within the first 24 hours after applying the eyelash extensions in order to allow time for the glue to properly cure. Thereafter, you can resume your normal day to day activities without any harm to your eyelash extensions. The only thing you want to be sure to avoid is oil based products around your lashes.
How often you need a touch up depends on your own natural eyelash growth cycle and on how well you take care of your lashes. Lash extensions will follow your lashes’ natural growth cycle, which is around 30 to 45 days. The lash extension will shed with the natural lash as it would normally. Typically, to maintain a full look, clients will get touch ups on their lash extensions every 2 to 3 weeks.
More dramatic than mascara, yet far more natural than a strip of fake eyelashes, lash extensions are simply stunning when done right. Lash extensions create the gorgeous lashes you want, and you won’t have to bother applying and removing mascara every day. They look best with minimal makeup, so you’ll need less time to get ready in the morning, and have less wear and tear on your eyes from applying and removing makeup.
