Your Guide To Perfect Eyelash Extensions

What Are Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash extensions are meant to enhance and customise your natural eyelashes in a way that mascara will never be able to. They are semi-permanently applied to your natural lashes by a trained technician. Your extensions will last about 4-6 weeks with minimal maintenance required. This is the lifespan of the glue used to adhere the extensions to your eyelashes. Do not worry about them awkwardly falling out. They will come out one by one just as your natural eyelashes do.   It is very important to have a trained technician adhere your eyelash extensions. Failure to do so can cause unwanted damage to your natural lashes.  

What to Know When Selecting Eyelash Extensions

If you are new to eyelash extensions, there are some things you need to know before getting your first extensions. After application, you will need to abstain from getting them wet for a certain period of time to let the glue dry. As far as maintenance goes, you will need to go back to the salon every few weeks for fill-ins. It is also important to comb them every so often. Failure to do so can cause the lashes to clump together and instead of falling out one at a time, they will fall out as a group.   If you've hesitated to get extensions because you think there are lifestyle restrictions, think again! You can get extensions wet and wear eye make-up until your heart's content. You can also choose to go back to your natural lashes at any point by either allowing them to fall out on their own or have your technician remove them.   Everyone has different preferences. The best part about extensions is the ability to customise them. Your technician can help you choose the material, length, number, and curl based on your natural lashes and personal preferences.    

Styles of Eyelash Extensions

As mentioned above, you can choose the material your lashes are made from, as well as the curl, length, and the number of lashes. Let's take a look at the different options.

Extension Types

  Silk individual, 3D, 4D, Russian volume, and extreme Russian Volume are the most common types of eyelash extensions.   Silk individual lashes, made of synthetic silk fibre are popular due to the fact that they are lighter than most other extension materials and very soft. 3D and 4D (also called hybrid), refers to the number of lashes applied per eye. This gives you more volume as compared to classic lashes, which is one extension per lash.   Russian volume and extreme Russian volume lashes are the latest and greatest advancements in eyelash extensions. The technician uses a fan of multiple lashes to place on each individual lash. This creates unsurpassed volume. Each individual lash in the set is thinner than an individual lash. Both techniques are extremely versatile, allowing the client to pick their desired density and volume.    

Extension Length

There are a variety of lengths and thicknesses offered depending on your natural lashes and desired look. The lashes towards the centre of your eye tend to be shorter than finer.  Your experienced technician will replicate your natural eyelashes with both length and thickness, to give you either a natural or dramatic look, based on your preferences.  

Extension Curl

Choose from minimal curl, maximum curl, and everything in between. This is solely based on preference and the look you are going for. Feel free to have fun and change it up from time to time!  

Number of Extensions

Typically 30 to 80 lashes are applied per eye. The number of eyelashes applied depends on your natural lashes and your preferences. Your experienced technician will apply as many extensions as possible for the number of natural lashes you have.
