A new fashion trend is growing in the U.S. semi-permanent eyelash extensions.
Eyelash extensions are considered “semi-permanent,” as they can remain in place for the natural cycle of the eyelash itself. A person’s natural eyelash typically falls out every 60 to 90 days and is naturally replaced with the growth of a new eyelash. Because of this natural cycle, it is usually necessary to get touch-ups to fill in every two to four weeks. (more…)
If you are putting on lashes yourself whether it be strips or clusters, the brands in the drugstores are great. Ardell and Duo are a couple that I would recommend.
Here are the top 12 Reasons to get Eyelash extensions:
Temporary false lashes
Temporary false lashes are any lashes designed to be worn for a short period; i.e. a day or less. They can be made with human hair, or with synthetic materials. The highest quality synthetic material is made with Keraspecific Fibre. This is made to feel and behave like real human hair. They are not designed to be worn when showering, sleeping or swimming. They are applied with lash glue designed specifically for temporary lashes. (more…)
Lash extensions are different than traditional false lashes, not for one-night occasions and not fake looking. Lash extensions are truly like your own lasts, only longer, fuller and better. If you are thinking about lash extensions here’s the scoop on what you need to know. (more…)
With prices ranging from about $200 to $350 per set, lash extensions are more affordable than ever.
A set of new eyelash extensions can run anywhere from $100 to $500 in the United States, depending on the type and number of lashes used, the skill of the cosmetician and the venue where extensions are performed. It usually takes an hour to two hours to attach a full new set. An average person might have anywhere from thirty to eighty lashes per eye. (more…)
Eyelash Extensions: What not to do
You will need to avoid showers and steam for the first 24 hours after an application. Use only Oil-Free Make-up Remover and avoid rubbing eyes aggressively. Try to avoid steam, waterproof make up and oil base make up removers. (more…)
Applying Other Make-up
All regular makeup can be used with lash extensions. Mascara can be worn, but is definitely not recommended. Wearing mascara will make lashes clumpy and cause lashes to fall off prematurely.
Another step you can eliminate from your morning routine (and your budget) – mascara! With last extensions, you will no longer need to mess with mascara. The extensions will naturally darken your lashes, so you will have the look without the work. (more…)
The procedure will take approximately 1 hour for a full set and approximately 45 minutes for a half set and 1 hour for an in-fill. It is a meticulous procedure that requires patience and concentration so therefore it should not be rushed so that clients can leave with a perfect set of lashes. You relax with your eyes closed and there is no pain as this is a non-invasive procedure. Often clients are so relaxed they fall asleep.
