What ARE eye lash extensions?
Eye Lash extensions are simply an imitation of your real eyelashes. They are carefully dipped in a non-toxic glue or adhesive and placed to your real individualized lash one by one.
There are different types of extensions and lengths. The three most common types of extensions are silk, mink, and synthetic. For the first time; even though it doesn’t sound intriguing; Synthetic might be the better choice in case of an allergic reaction to the Mink or even Silk. This may be an area that you are not sure of the sensitivity of your skin and eyes. It’s better to be safe; then to jump right into Beyoncé (wears mink lashes), and become BeWOW!
Is it painful?
Of course not; you barely know it is happening. If you tear up with the touch of another around your tear ducts, then you will feel the cool drops running down the sides of your face but other than that you will probably feel the need to sleep.
Your lash stylist will take a seat above your head. They will place a pad right below your eyes and wiggled it up against each of your lower lash lines and will most likely tell you to close your eyes. Your Stylist will begin to work and I highly doubt you will be able to even feel them separating each lash with tweezers and gluing the longer lash to yours.
This isn’t a wax resulting in pulling unwanted hair out. This is the complete opposite. This is putting thicker, longer hair in. So, the feeling is going to be opposite as well.
No pain for this gain so sit back and lashnap!
What can and can’t I do with “lash extensions“?
After 24-48 depending upon the glue used and it has had time to cure; just simply live life as normal. Using common sense and be delicate around your eyes. When it comes to makeup and skincare, stay away from any oil-based products, such as moisturizers or makeup removers. These based products can break down the adhesive. No waterproof mascara, because it’s removal is a bit harder and can result in pulling your lashes out. But in all honesty, you’re not going to need mascara but if you must; focus on the tips of the lashes,
, staying away from the where your lashes are glued.
It’s also recommended that you sleep on your back, to prevent premature lash loss that would come with laying on your side and rubbing your lashes on your pillow. But hey sleep however you wish; but don’t burry your face deep and rub your eyes if you expect to have as many there as you did before you went to bed.
Remember if you like it rough; your lashes might not be as tough!
How long do extensions last?
They shed with the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes, which is about 6-8 weeks. Each lash is on a different growth cycle, and everyone sheds differently depending on their lifestyle. It is recommended to get your lashes filled every 2-4 weeks.
For your lashes to look their very best you should maintenance them just like you do everything such as shaving your legs and cutting a haircut or a set and style.
Now you can BOOK your appointment with a little more ease; don’t you think?
