What are eyelash extensions?
They are synthetic individual eyelashes and come in different lengths, thickness, and degrees of curl. They will give you a fuller, darker lash line without the need of mascara. You won’t feel you are wearing them, and no one will be able to tell that you weren’t born with them.
Why should I get semi-permanent eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions instantly give you sexier, younger and refreshed-looking eyes. You will wake up looking lusciously lashed and find that you have a lower-maintenance beauty routine, as you will no longer need to curl and apply coats of mascara. Extensions can even protect your own lashes from the damage caused by curling and mascara application.
Who wears eyelash extensions?
You don’t have to be a celebrity or model to wear eyelash extensions. Normal everyday ladies love eyelash extensions and can’t bear to be without them. Eyelash clients include nurses, beauty therapists, surgeons, dentists, lawyers, financial advisors, moms, detectives, dancers, business owners, nail technicians, forensic chemists, university students, hairdressers, police women and many more wonderful people.
What is the process like?
The application process is very relaxing – like receiving a spa service. You lie down on a plush table and have your eyes closed the entire time. The initial set takes up to 2 hours to apply.
How long do lash extensions last?
With proper care and touchup visits they will last indefinitely. Most people naturally shed 3-5 natural lashes per eye, per day. Therefore, it is necessary to get touch-ups to fill in the fallen lashes. Every 2 to 3 weeks is recommended, however, this will vary from person to person depending on how well you maintain them, your daily activities and where you are in your lash cycle.
Can mascara and other makeup be worn with lash extensions?
Yes, even though mascara is not required since the extensions actually give the illusion of wearing mascara, it can be worn. It must however only be water based mascara. Do not use oil-based or waterproof mascara. Waterproof mascara or any type of oil-based mascara can dissolve the bonding agent and shorten the life of your eyelash extensions causing them to fall sooner. Care also needs to be taken in washing off the mascara. Only use a water based eye makeup remover.
Should I be careful who applies my eyelash extensions?
Absolutely, I cannot stress the importance of choosing an eyelash technician who has been taught by a qualified and experienced person. There are many eyelash extension operators who are claiming to have been professionally trained and applying lashes incorrectly. This is disastrous and I am having more and more distressed ladies contacting me for help and advice as they have had a bad experience by one of the many untrained people. Please do your research thoroughly and ask many questions.
Will lash extensions damage my natural lashes?
No. In fact, lash extensions are kinder to your natural lashes because you don’t curl or apply mascara, which can dry out and even break your eyelashes. Lash extensions look and feel completely real.
Are lash extensions comfortable?
When lash extensions are done properly (extensions applied to one natural lash only), they will be completely comfortable and you won't feel them at all. If you have tried lash extensions that have felt heavy, or felt like they were pulling or making your lash line sore; they were not applied properly and are damaging your natural lashes.
