My Q and A- Eyelash Extensions
If you pride yourself on being up-to-date in the beauty or fashion industry, the odds are that you have heard about eyelash extensions. You have probably seen celebrities walk down the red carpet with long, luxurious-looking eyelashes. Maybe you even want to get your own pair of eyelash extensions applied, but have a few questions. Keep on reading to find some FAQ’s on synthetic lashes.
Q: What exactly are eyelash extensions?
A: Eyelash extensions or synthetic lashes are semi-permanent extensions that are applied to your already existing eyelashes. They are applied using special adhesives and glues, and can stay on even when you go swimming or go to bed at night. These lashes can stay on for several weeks, and with proper treatments and re-visits to your salon, can stay on much longer than several weeks.
Q: Should I be wary of who applies my lashes?
A: Yes, you should absolutely be wary of who applies your extensions. Only trained technicians should be participating in this sensitive process. Be wary of “freelance” eyelash extension experts, who probably learned how to apply the synthetic lashes via YouTube or some other source. Always make an effort to go to a recognized lash lounge or salon that has great reviews and has been open for some time.
Q: Will eyelash extensions hurt my natural eyelashes?
A: As long as you do not try to pull off the extensions, they will not hurt your natural lashes. Because synthetic lashes are applied with very strong glues, they may actually cause you to pull out your own eyelashes if you try to take out the extensions. The extensions are applied individually to each one of your lashes.
In summary, eyelash extensions are synthetic lashes that are applied to your naturally occurring lashes. Specialists around the country have been able to build businesses based solely on applying eyelash extensions, and have years of experience in doing what they do. Never apply your own eyelash extensions, always turn to a pro.
