Perhaps you’ve seen some friends with gorgeous lashes – whether in photos or in person – and wondered how they achieved it. Well, you can have those to-die-for lashes too (and even wake up with your lashes on point for weeks), thanks to eyelash extensions! Curious? Read on to find out All You Need To Know About Eyelash Extensions.
What are eyelash extensions?
Lash extensions are synthetic strands that are made to replicate a natural eyelash. These are semi-permanent ones, which are different from temporary strip lashes (or falsies). As semi-permanent lash extensions are applied by a professional lash artist by hand, a strand at a time, they look and feel completely natural – but you’d look glam for weeks.
What’s the process like?
How long can eyelash extensions last?
Depending on how you take care of them, lash extensions can last up to a month. Ideally, you should not sweat, swim or wash your face for at least 12 hours after application – so as to enable the glue to dry properly and keep those lash extensions intact!
Apart from that, the longevity of lash extensions is also dependent on the lash life cycle, which varies from person to person. Like the other hair on your body, eyelashes also have a natural growth cycle. That means they undergo stages of growth, transition and rest. During the growth phase, lashes would – as the name suggests – grow within a period of 30 to 45 days. Once the lashes reach their designated length, they would then stop growing and the hair follicle would shrink. After which, these lashes would have a 100-day resting phase before falling out and making room for new lashes to take their place. As all our lashes are in different stages of the cycle each time, you wouldn’t have to worry about them all falling out at the same time!
What options are there for eyelash extensions?
It doesn’t matter whether you wish to achieve a bold, sexy look, or a natural one that would still add a touch of glamour to your everyday look – there’s something for everyone! As eyelash extensions come in a variety of lengths and thickness, there’s no doubt that your lash artist would be able to help you achieve your desired look or recommend you a flattering style if you’re unsure.
