Having an eyelash extension is becoming a rave nowadays. More and more women are adding this to their beauty lists. Having your lashes extended just gives you added glamour and beauty without the inconvenience of putting on mascaras and false eyelashes. By having your eyelash extended you can have long, curly and thick eyelashes in no time. In less time, with not much effort.
To prepare for eyelash extensions, arrive with clean skin (no makeup around the eye area). Your technician will be taping your lower lashes down to your skin and placing hydrating eye pads on top. This is done to prevent the glue from getting on the lower part of your eye as lashes are applied.
Dress comfy (you’ll be laying on your back for roughly a couple of hours—and yes, some people fall asleep during the service). You may also want to come prepared with headphones to listen to music or your favourite podcast to help pass the time.
Lash extensions are made from silk fibres, mink, or synthetic materials that resemble natural lash hairs. Each extension is attached one by one (or up to four at a time) to the base of your natural lash hair with semi-permanent adhesive (1). Depending on the look you want to achieve, anywhere from 60–140 individual lashes will be applied to each eye.
