What exactly are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are used to enhance the length, curliness, fullness, and thickness of natural eyelashes. The extensions may be made from several materials including mink synthetic, or horse hair. The main method of applying the extensions on is by using adhesive glue to individually sticking them to the eyelashes one-by-one. This is to prevent the eyelashes from sticking together. False eyelashes and eyelash extensions are not the same.
What is the process?
Because an average person might have anywhere from one hundred to two hundred lashes per eye, it can take from one to three hours to attach a full, new set. The amount of lashes one can put on varies upon the existing natural eyelashes.
How safe is it?
The Eyelash technique does not damage your natural eyelashes, because the extensions is applied one eyelash at a time without touching the skin, using a specially designed adhesive and synthetic hair.
Biggest myth of getting eyelash extensions?
The biggest myth is that lash extensions ruin your own 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.
How long do these extensions last?
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), I suggest light lash maintenance every three to four weeks to maintain a full look.
Who should opt for it?
If you feel your lashes are so fine you want more density to your lashes you should opt for it; new eyelashes are long, thick and beautiful, but yes technician is a right person to guide you.
How can one take care of the extensions, post getting them done?
New Eyelashes are long, thick and beautiful. They require little care and will perfectly adapt to your lifestyle. They are resistant to water, perspiration and tears. It is necessary to avoid oils, lotions, cream and water-resistant mascara. These products weaken the adhesive properties.
Do you have trained professional for the same?
