Special Offer for Lash Extensions + What Do You Need to Know About Lash Extensions
Lash extensions are becoming more and more popular, and it seems that no self-respecting star ventures out without a full set of voluminous lashes. But are they for you – and what do you need to know before you go ahead and book the appointment?
How do you find a reputable clinic/lash professional?
This is so important because you’re working so close to your eyes – you don’t want to trust the job to an amateur. Always make sure that the person you choose to carry out lash extensions (or lifts, tints and any other lash work) has the correct certification to do the treatment. Ask about training, and what brands they use – it’s important to use good quality professional products too. If they have before and after pictures, recommendations and reviews, check those out before you book.
What are the most common types of lash extensions?
There are three common lash extensions: synthetic, silk and mink. They also come in different sizes; from 6mm to 17mm. The lashes you choose are applied one at a time and stuck to your natural lashes with a semi-permanent glue that’s designed to be gentle on your eye. You will need to have a patch test before a first treatment; and reputable clinic or spa will insist on this because even though they are formulated to be suitable for this delicate area, there’s always a chance of an allergic reaction.
Everyone’s natural lashes are different, and the type of lash extension you choose and the effect it can achieve depends a lot the condition of your own natural lashes. If your own lashes are quite short, very long extensions won’t work but you could still have a half set and see how that looks – remember that it’s always easier to add more lashes than it is to remove them.
How long do they take to apply?
If you’re having a full set, be prepared to book out up to two hours. After the initial treatment, you can have them ‘touched-up’ regularly – most estheticians suggest having them topped up around every three or four weeks.
Will they fall out over time?
Yes, all extensions will eventually fall off with the natural lashes that they are attached to. A touch up every three to four weeks will keep them looking good, though. Avoid picking at them or ‘playing’ with them too, as that can weaken the glue.
Another thing to be aware of is that it’s important to attach each extension lash to one natural lash – inexperienced estheticians can occasionally apply one synthetic lash to multiple natural lashes, which can cause the natural lash to fall out faster or a ‘clumping’ effect. Make sure your professional is fully qualified and that should avoid the problem.
Can you wear mascara?
Lash extensions eliminate the need of mascara as they do the job better. Since lash extensions enhance the length and volume of your natural lashes, there is no need to apply messy mascara. Enjoy the definition and opening effect it has on your eyes.
Do extensions damage your natural lashes?
Not if they are applied correctly, by a trained professional. As long as you don’t rub your eyes or pull at the extensions your lashes will be fine.
