What to Know Before Getting Eyelash Extensions

If your beauty routine includes things like curling lashes and applying multiple layers of mascara – you may be wasting precious time. There’s a more permanent solution: eyelash extensions.

What are eyelash extensions?

Eyelash extensions are cosmetic applications that enhance the length, curl, fullness, and thickness of natural eyelashes. The extensions may be made from several materials including mink, silk, synthetic, human or horsehair. The main method of applying the extensions is by using a cyanoacrylate adhesive to apply the extension(s) to the natural lash 1–2 mm from the base of the natural eyelash, never making contact with the eyelid.

What is the difference between different eyelash extensions?

The biggest difference is in the result you can achieve with each – classic lashes won’t add much volume but will add length. Classic eyelash extensions offer you an even lash line that opens up the eye. It helps you look made-up right from the moment you wake up, and builds on your natural lash beauty.

How to choose the right eyelash extension?

Choosing the best type of extension can be difficult. Have trouble? If so, these helpful tips on how to choose the right eyelash extensions can help. Choosing the right eyelash extension for a client is rarely a simple process. There is an endless list of things to consider and at times, it can become overwhelming. If you’re having a hard time, these tips on choosing the right eyelash extensions can help.

How long do eyelash extensions last?

Because extensions are attached to the lash itself, they last as long as the natural growth cycle, or about six weeks. To extend the life of the extensions, we recommend using a lash conditioner and gently combing through your lashes with a dry spoolie brush.  You should also refrain from rubbing your eyes, using a mechanical eyelash curler, and standing under the shower head for a prolonged amount of time. And you should also sleep on your side and use a silk or satin pillowcase to prevent drying or snagging. 

Will extensions ruin my natural lashes? 

Because application requires precise work around such a delicate area of your face, it’s important to find someone who is certified to apply lashes, says Richardson. In some states, the stylist also needs to be licensed.
