What is eyelash extension?

Clementina Richson, celebrity lash expert, founder of Envious Lashes, explains that lash extensions are semi-permanent fibres which are individually applied to every strand of natural lashes. They give you longer and fuller lashes and improve your appearance by lifting, lengthening, and opening your eye. A professional applies each fiber by hand. The overall appearance is customized and looks natural.

There are different types of eyelash extensions.

Richardson says that these fibers, which are usually synthetic, faux-mink or silk, come in different sizes, ranging from 6mm up to 18mm. There are also a few options for curl width. Most people require 80-150 lashes for a complete set to achieve natural volume.

There are three main styles of lash extensions: fan, classic and hybrid. Classic lashes are a single extension attached to one natural lash. Fan lashes can be a combination of both classic and fan lashes.

How to choose the best extensions for your face.

Richardson says that most people do not realize the art of applying lash extensions. It’s not a one-size-fits all situation. It’s important that women understand that lash extension are an enhancement to your natural lashes.

Richardson says that a licensed and certified eyelash extension expert will customize every set of eyelash extensions to the client’s individual needs, using up to five different lengths, and as many as two different curvatures.

How long does eyelash extension last?

The application is expensive (the basic set of lashes at Envious Lashes cost $105), and it takes time – anywhere from one to two hour depending on the desired amount – but with proper care lash extensions can last up to six weeks.

Richardson says that extensions will fall out with your hair growth cycle. This is usually every six to eight week. “Refills can be a great option to prolong the life of your eyelashes. They are recommended every 2 to 3 weeks.”

Can eyelash extensions be made to last longer?

No matter what you choose to do, lash extensions will eventually fall out because they are attached to your natural lashes. There are some things you can do to prevent premature breakage.

After application, avoid steam and moistening your lashes during the first 48-hour period. Richardson says that you can wash your face or take a shower, but make sure no water gets on your lashes.

She also advises that you should avoid rubbing your eyelids, using an automatic eyelash curler and standing for long periods of time under the shower.

It’s not just about what you can’t. You can keep your eyelash extensions looking great by gently brushing them every now and then with a spoolie, followed by a conditioning serum. Richardson recommends sleeping on your side with a satin or silk pillowcase. This will prevent snagging or drying.

Can extensions damage my natural lashes?

Richardson says that because the application of lashes requires precision work in a sensitive area, it is important to hire someone certified. In some states the stylist must also be licensed.

Richardson says that if you visit an inexperienced stylist, it’s likely you will end up with clumpy, uneven lashes. They can even damage your natural lashes and prevent regrowth.

Richardson assures that eyelash extensions, when applied correctly, will not damage your natural lashes. She says to be gentle when handling them. If you rub, they may come off or the hairs that are attached will fall out.

Are they worth it…?

The extensions can be expensive and require maintenance, but they provide natural volume to your eyes that makes mascara unnecessary. This is an excellent time-saver if you use makeup frequently.

If you don’t wear makeup often or can’t maintain your extensions regularly, this treatment might not be for you.
