Lash extensions are tiny black fibers that resemble eyelashes and are attached to natural eyelashes using glue. The fibers either come as individual pieces or are attached to a strip. Strip lashes can be applied by anyone. Professionals typically apply individual lashes. Our guide focuses on the latter because they’re more complicated, not to mention expensive.
How do eyelash extensions work?
Licensed technicians carefully apply fake lashes by attaching the tiny extensions one by one to create a look that’s both dramatic and natural. After the service, lash extensions will last through a full growth cycle of your natural eyelashes. Though each person’s lash growth may vary, this process is generally between six to eight weeks. However, most technicians recommend touch-ups every three to four weeks.
What are they made out of?
The most common extension materials are mink, synthetic hair, and synthetic silk. Mink extensions tend to be the lightest and softest, which is why some people believe they’re the best fake eyelashes. It’s also why they’re the most expensive. Synthetic lashes are typically the thickest and heaviest of the bunch, resulting in a highly dramatic look. Synthetic silk extensions are the most common type of extensions used nowadays because they tend to be fairly light, very dark, and able to hold a curl.
How long does the application process take?
Because the application process is so meticulous, getting a full set can take 2.5–3 hours. Most clients use the time to nap. Half sets and touch-ups take considerably less time.
How long do eyelash extensions last?
Six to eight weeks. Lash extensions last through a full growth cycle of natural eyelashes, typically six to eight weeks. That said, because each person’s lash growth is somewhat variable (just hair growth), we suggest light lash maintenance every three to four weeks to maintain a full look.
Do eyelash extensions ruin your natural lashes?
The biggest myth is that lash extensions ruin your lashes. They do not. If applied correctly and properly, they are safe and do not ruin the health of your natural lashes. Be sure not to rub your eyes or tug or pull on the extensions because this can cause lash loss and even damage to your natural lashes.
Can I wear eyeliner with lash extensions?
Liquid, cream, and pencil liners are risky with eyelash extensions. Oil-based liquid eyeliners are not recommended, because oil can weigh down the lashes and result in premature loss of the extensions. … Powder eyeliner works best with eyelash extensions. Make sure you opt for an oil-free formulation.
Should you brush your lash extensions?
Lashes can get tangled when you’re sleeping or showering, so it’s required that you gently brush your lashes with a clean spoolie brush when you wake up, after you shower, and at the end of the day. And to prevent unnecessary tangling, try to sleep on your back or side (not your stomach) and use a silk pillowcase, which tends to be gentler on extensions.
