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.
The application of a full set of eyelash extensions typically takes between one and three hours, depending on the skill level of the technician and how many extensions are desired. The application procedure is painless. Clients recline comfortably with their eyes closed during the entire procedure. Most clients go to sleep during the procedure. Xtreme lashes feel weightless and provide a beautiful, lush appearance.
The eyelash extensions are water resistant. Wearers may swim, exercise and shower worry free. Eyelash extensions do not require a lifestyle change for active people. The cost of an application varies throughout the country, but usually is between $200 and $700. Touch-ups are usually done for a fraction of this, depending on how many lash extensions need to be added. Eyelash extensions are great for special occasions or for everyday wear.
Xtreme Lashes™ is a revolutionary new product that lengthens and thickens eyelashes. Xtreme Lashes™ are single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. They are applied to individual eyelashes, one lash at a time, for a natural, elegant and luscious look. Xtreme Lashes™ is perfect for special occasions as well as for every day wear.
Lash extensions are applied one at a time to natural lashes. These can be synthetic or human hair. I prefer synthetic, as they are created with channels which help adhesive stick, they have a tapered end, and they are naturally more water resistant. The come in a variety of lengths and thicknesses for customization. They shed with your natural lashes.
Eyelash extensions work for every age, ethnicity and lifestyle. I always like to get a little background on what the client does on a day-to-day basis in terms of her job, daily style, or to find out if she is getting lashes for daily use or for an occasion to help determine the style of lashes that she would be most happy with. But false lashes can be applied on all eye shapes and work for anyone.
To maintain your eyelash extensions, you should return one week after your initial application to have your technician check, and then return for “fills” every two weeks. Remember, every time you lose a natural lash, you lose the extension.
It is important to have your lash extensions applied by a qualified operator who uses to quality product. The eyelash has a cycle and is constantly being replaced like your hair. If you pull so hard on an extension lash and pull out your own natural lash there will be no new lash ready to grow to take its place and you will have to wait 6-8 weeks for that lash to grow.
Each day we can loose 3-5 natural lashes, but often they fall out unnoticed unless they fall into your eye, but when eyelash extensions are applied we are more aware of when they shed as we know the extensions are there plus they are longer, darker and thicker. If you sleep on your stomach with your face squashed into the pillow or you favour sleeping on one side you may notice the lashes may not last as well as the other side.
In-fills are when the natural eyelash has fallen out (due to the eyelash cycle) and there has been an extension lash applied to it. You will require in-fills every 2-4 weeks if you would like to achieve a consistently full fresh set of lashes. At the Eyelash Boutique we take the time to remove any eyelash extensions that have either grown out to far or are not sitting correctly. Please not that we do not stack the lash extensions as other operators do. Please refer to Eyelash Pricing. For in-fill bookings allow approximately 1 hour.
Synthetic eyelashes come in different lengths and thickness. Lengths available are 5mm – 15mm, in black and coloured lashes in purple, navy, pink, red and green used as highlight amongst the black lashes in “J” curl. Now available and extremely popular with Eyelash Boutique clients are the thicker .20mm and .25mm thick lashes. The Eyelash Boutique also uses “C” and “D” lashes. The thicker lashes are artfully placed along the lash line. Specialty lashes are now very popular in Y lashes which create double the amount of lashes giving the look of thickness and volume. During the application a mixture of lengths and thicknesses are used – shorter lashes being used on the inner eye area and gradually increasing in length towards the middle and outer corners. Unlike other eyelash extension operators who only stock three lengths we understand that not one size fits all so at the Eyelash Boutique we apply what our clients request and we tailor make to suit each individual client. If you have a specific request or look please discuss this with your eyelash extension technician on the day of your appointment.
Eyelash extensions are any number of enhancements designed to add length, thickness and fullness to natural eyelashes. They may be compared to hair extensions for one’s eyelashes. They can be separated into two types: temporary and semi-permanent. There is also a medical way of enhancing eyelashes.
Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent synthetic lashes that are applied lash by lash to your own natural lashes with a safe long lasting adhesive. This service should be preformed in a clean, quiet, and relaxing environment. It generally takes about 1 1/2 to 3 hours to complete. You can get a natural look to enhance your lashes or you can get a set of dramatic lashes that will “wow” everyone. The lashes will vary in length, thickness, color, and shape. Since they are semi-permanent you will need to use special care and have them touched up about every 2 to 6 weeks.
The process itself takes between one and a half to two hours, due to the fact that an extension is attached to each single one of your own eyelashes – for the most dramatic, full and long lasting effect. Most salons will give you a choice of length, thickness and color – however it is advisable that you experiment with temporary false eyelashes first to see which effect you prefer!
