What are eyelash extensions?
Defined as a semi-permanent extension adhered to your natural lashes, lash extensions come in many shapes in sizes, from real mink fur to silk and from long and curly to short and thick.
If you’re confused about what you want to get, no worries your lash technician will determine which are the best ones for you, not everyone’s natural lashes can handle the weight of really heavy long extension so what’s best to listen to your technician’s recommendation.
How do they work?
Your eyelashes are each on their own growth cycle that’s why they don’t all fall out at the same time so when you have extensions you get them filled regularly as the extensions will fall out with your lashes there are already shedding. Most people get filling every 3 weeks, we have some clients come in every week because they desire a very full look, it’s up to you but if you go past four weeks you’re like they have to pay for a new full set.
Natural Or Sultry?
In addition to various types of extension, there are also different styles you can get a natural more modest look, you can get a sultry cat-eye, where your lashes fan out on the ends.
There are also volume sets, volumes are the best, it’s basically two or more extensions adhered to one lash. they actually last longer too, because the extensions are so light since you have to put multiple on one lash. Talk to your technician beforehand to determine what style you want. It’s totally up to you.
Take good care.
If you do get extensions, it’s important to care for them properly. We recommend cleaning them with baby shampoo – it’s gentle and won’t ruin the adhesive. It’s also important to clean your lashes to avoid any buildup, which can lead to irritations and even infections like conjunctivitis. If you wear eye makeup, make sure you don’t use oil-based makeup remover. Doing so will destroy the bond and make your extensions fall out. Also, please do not touch or mess with them too much, avoid pulling them off yourself. If you want your lashes removed, go to your salon and have them removed properly. pulling off your extensions can actually pull out your own lashes which is not good not only that but it’s painful.
No mascara allowed.
We recommend that you don’t wear mascara for 24 hours before you get extensions since it can be so hard to remove before an extension application. there’s also no reason to wear mascara when you have extensions anyway if you do were mascara before an appointment, your technicians should clean them as thoroughly as possible otherwise Mascara residue can weaken the bond of the adhesive. your extensions won’t last as long.
Are you allergic?
Unfortunately, some people are allergic to eyelash extensions or adhesives. if you’re thinking about getting them, but you’re concerned you might be allergic, no worries we always do glue tests before the application to ensure you are good. Longtime extension wearers can also develop contact dermatitis. We recommend taking a break from extensions if you notice flaking, redness, or swelling to prevent developing an allergy.
There are plenty of reasons to get extensions for one, extensions can also make you appear more awake and alert. and since long flirty lashes are often associated with youth, one application can instantly take years off your face. to top it all off, they’re the ultimate convenience.
