- Eyelash extensions are NOT the same as temporary lashes.
Typically, semi-permanent lashes are applied by a technician who hand-glues the extensions on top of your natural lashes. With proper care (more on that later), they can last for six to eight weeks until they naturally fall out like your lashes usually do.
- Eyelash techniques are constantly evolving.
Whereas the classic, most widely used technique involves applying a single lash extension over your natural lash, the Russian Volume technique (also referred to as the Volume Technique or 3D lashing) is a newer trend where the technician places up to eight ultra-fine extensions onto each natural eyelash for a fluffy, thick, fanned-out effect.
- Extensions aren’t a one-size-fits-all situation.
So you want celebrity -level lashes? Great—but that doesn’t mean your eyes can handle them. “The type of lashes you can get all depends on the length and strength of your natural lashes,” . “Wearing lashes that are too long or too thick for your lashes can actually cause damage in the long run, so you need to make your sure your extensions aren’t too much longer or thicker than your natural lashes.”
- You have to lay low for at least 12 hours after application.
Most technicians will tell you not to sweat, cry, swim, or wash your face for at least 12 hours after getting extensions to give the glue a chance to dry. “Eyelash adhesives vary in the time they take to cure, from either 12 to 24 hours depending on what glue your stylist uses, but that first 24 hours the most important time frame for keep your lashes long-lasting,”
Summing up the eyelashes should not pain or destroy your natural eyelashes! The eyelash extensions are becoming more popular giving the length, volume and the curve even to women who have very thin / weak eyelashes … how dramatic your look will be!
