What are Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash Extensions are semi-permanent eyelash extensions comprised of individual synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. The lashes are thicker at the base and taper to a fine point. They are applied to individual eyelashes, one extension at a time, for a natural, elegant look to lengthen and add fullness to the existing lashes.
What are Eyelash Extensions made of?
Eyelash Extensions are crafted from synthetic polyester. Synthetic lashes respond better to wear and tear than other materials. In addition, synthetics have the least possible chance of allergic reactions with human skin. Testing has shown that there are higher percentages of people who will have adverse reactions to contact with lash extensions created from animal hairs, such as mink.
What do they look like, and how do they feel?
Eyelash Extensions look and feel completely real. Each application is customized to suit the individual. There are three thicknesses of lashes and four different curls. Varying individual synthetic lash lengths are chosen to carefully replicate the shape and frame of a natural lash line. The thickness of the Eyelash Extensions applied are determined by the health and thickness of your natural lashes as well as personal preference. The overall effect is added curl, thickness and length, opening up the eye for added definition.
Eyelash Extensions are designed to be indistinguishable in size and weight to human lashes. They are flexible yet crimp-resistant, and they move with your natural lashes. As long as you keep up with the touch-up applications, it is almost impossible to tell that you are wearing the extensions. Because Eyelash Extensions are an exact replica of your natural eyelash, it weighs about as much as a natural lash: practically nothing.
What are the benefits of having Eyelash Extensions?
Most women choose Eyelash Extensions to lengthen their natural lashes while others want their lashes to look fuller. A number of women with naturally light colored lashes choose Eyelash Extensions to darken their existing lashes. Women love the different fun looks they can achieve with highlighting and layering.
Eyelash Extensions can create a younger appearance on many clients. Several consumers who were contemplating having work done on their faces have informed me that they no longer feel the need as a result of wearing Eyelash Extensions. Eyelash Extensions create the appearance of a brighter, more open and rested eye, thereby creating a more youthful and rejuvenated look.
Above all, the main advantage of Eyelash Extensions is how much time you can save during your beauty regimen. Eyelash Extensions allow you to spend less time with makeup; mascara is certainly no longer necessary. Because the lashes are bigger at the base, they create the same effect as eyeliner so that step can be avoided as well. Overall, Eyelash Extensions will give you the appearance of having put significant effort into your eye makeup when, in reality, you spent no time at all. No application of eye makeup and no need for removal at the end of the day. The added benefit is that they look beautiful morning and night, all day, every day. Say goodbye to mascara, stained tears, and temporary lash strips! With Eyelash Extensions you can look and feel gorgeous from the moment you wake up until the moment you fall asleep with little to no effort.
Will Eyelash Extensions damage my lashes?
You will not notice the addition of the extensions to your lashes as they will not cause your natural lashes to fall out ahead of their natural cycle like other enhancement methods can.
How long do Eyelash Extensions last?
The look can be maintained indefinitely with lash fills. When properly applied, Eyelash Extensions will remain in place until the natural lash on which it rests falls out. With proper care and maintenance, touch-ups are typically only needed once every 2 to 4 weeks to replace the lashes that have shed. Ashley will add extensions to the newest mature natural lashes to maintain a full, lush appearance.
How long does the process take?
It generally takes between 80 to 150 minutes to apply a full set of Eyelash Extensions. Touch-ups can be done in as little as 45 to 60 minutes.
Can you describe the application process?
You will be comfortably reclined with your eyes closed while Eyelash Extensions are applied one at a time to your own natural eyelashes. There is no discomfort or pain involved in the procedure. In fact, most clients find it is so relaxing and comfortable that they fall asleep.
Who wears Eyelash Extensions?
Women ages 16-68. Eyelash Extensions are especially valuable for busy moms, professional women, brides and bridal parties, performers/entertainers, musicians, etc. Basically any woman who wishes to feel more confident about their appearance with the enhancement of their eyes.
Can I apply Eyelash Extensions to my own eyelashes?
No. Only a trained professional will be able to safely apply Eyelash Extensions. Unprofessional application or self-application may cause eye injury, lash damage or unnatural looking lashes. Eyelash Extensions are applied one lash at a time to your individual natural eyelashes to achieve long, thick and natural looking eyelashes. The application process involves bonding the synthetic extension to your own natural eyelashes and should be performed only by professionally trained Lash Stylists only.
How much does it cost for an application of Eyelash Extensions?
The initial investment in Eyelash Extensions consists of the initial full set, typically between 60 and 120 lashes per eye. Depending on how many lashes are applied, the skill level of the Lash Stylist and in what part of the country you are located. The application of Eyelash Extensions is an art form, and just as with hair styling and cutting, it can cost a bit more to have your lashes styled by the best. Once the initial set has been completed, touch-ups are necessary to maintain fullness.
A typical Eyelash Extensions touch up application consists of 20 – 40 lashes per eye and costs substantially less than the initial application (see Pricing page). Given this, the cost of maintaining your eyelash extensions indefinitely is really quite comparable to the cost of fills on acrylic nails or highlighting your hair.
One note of caution: I hear countless stories of individuals who go to an untrained lash technician or inexperienced, but "licensed" estheticians because the cost is low. They receive a substandard set of lashes that is clumpy, painful and often damaging to their lashes. A proper application of lashes is not painful during or after the procedure. The Eyelash Extension application is an exacting process that takes skill and time. If the cost is very cheap, you should certainly question the training of the technician as well as the quality of the product. These same individuals often end up seeking out an Eyelash Extensions artist after they try the cheap alternatives. Ultimately, most have realized from experience that the old adage “you get what you pay for” is often true.
