Everything You Need To Know About Eyelash Extensions

Most women don’t have the time or patience to put on or wear eyelash extensions that they have to put on themselves that you can buy from a drug store.  However, a new trend is getting eyelash extensions from a med spa. Before you decide to do this and get long lashes with no maintenance, here’s what you need to know.

What are eyelash extensions?

Eyelash extensions are tiny black fibers that look like natural eyelashes. They attach to your real eyelashes to make them look thicker and fuller. Some lash extensions are used as individual pieces or sometimes they are attached to a strip and put on that way. Med spas and professionals typically use the type of lashes that are individual pieces as they look a little more natural and harder to put on.

How many eyelash extensions do I need?

There are a few options for eyelash extensions – a full or partial set. If you decide on a full set, you’ll need as many extensions as you have eyelashes where if you decide on a partial set then that’s typically about 35-40. If it is your first time or if you just are looking for a little lift then a partial set may be a good place to start.

What are eyelash extensions made of?

Eyelash extensions can be made out of a variety of different things. The most common materials are mink, synthetic, or horse hair. There are benefits to each different type of hair that is used.

How long do eyelash extensions last?

The application process of getting eyelash extensions lasts on average of about two hours. Most eyelash extensions last about 3-4 weeks, but this depends on the person. Every person’s eyelashes, just like their hair, grow at a different rate. Both the length and the thickness of your eyelash extensions will depend on your hair.

Sometimes just by adding small additions to your beauty routine like fake eyelashes, they can give you a whole new feeling of confidence. Make 2019 the year for you.
