Are you considering getting a set of eyelash extensions? There are a few things you should know about eyelash extensions before you run off to the salon to get a voluminous set. Before you run out and grab yourself a set, you take these factors into consideration:
1. Learn about the different types of eyelash extensions
First off, there are a few different kinds of eyelash extensions like synthetic (eyelashes made from a strong acrylic material that is less natural looking than the other variants but are also the strongest), silk (these tend to be a better option for people with finer lashes that are going for a more natural look), and mink (whether they’re made of real or fake mink fur, they are made with fine fibres that take longer to apply and are more fragile than the other choices).
Their sizes range from 6 millimeters to an impressive 17 millimeters. In the world of beauty procedures, this is one of the simplest touch-ups that go a long way. But
2. It’s a completely stress-free process
Getting eyelash extensions is unlike most beauty procedures. Get that surgical image of a lengthy painful procedure out of your head, the truth is that getting extensions put in is a matter of kicking back for an hour and a half (some procedures can last up to two hours depending on how full the set is) while the false eyelashes are added onto your natural lashes. So clear out your afternoon and lay back to some nice tunes while someone else does all the work.
3. They last longer than naysayers will tell you
You might have heard a few people here and there tell you that eyelash extensions are too delicate to last a long time. If you are careful, your false lashes could easily last up until about a month and a half. Furthermore, most clinics offer a free touch-up session if something were to go awry within about two weeks.
If you avoid getting water on them, oil-based beauty products around the eyes, and general rough treatment, then they should be sturdy enough for you to get your money’s worth.
4. To get them removed, you must have them taken out professionally or naturally fall off
The best way to get rid of your eyelash extensions is to wait for them to fall out naturally, which occurs at the same rate that your natural lashes grow and fall out. It is never a good idea to try and pluck them out yourself – you will only end up ruining your natural eye lashes if you are not careful. If you need those lashes gone quickly, it is always better to actually schedule an appointment with a technician who will be able to take them out delicately and relatively quickly.
Eyelash extensions are a feature that is gaining in popularity with every passing year. If you were considering getting them before, it only makes sense to try them out now that you are armed with this knowledge.
