Like hair extensions, eyelash extensions are a cosmetic process whereby synthetic materials are applied to create a fuller, longer look. Aiming for an authentic, natural feel, they come in various lengths, colors and thicknesses, and can be warn during sleep, showering and swimming.
Eyelash extensions differ from “fake” or “false” eyelashes in that they are applied one by one, and can last for two to six weeks. The procedure can take an average of two hours for a full set of extensions of roughly 30-80 lashes per eye.
Procedure – Eyelash Extensions Cost
A beautician carefully applies the “lash” with tweezers and a bonding agent. If applied with a proper medical-grade adhesive, eyelash extensions are designed to bond to one’s natural eyelash. Since eyelash extensions shed just like natural lashes, wearers are advised to have them re-applied every 2-4 weeks. The average cycle of a single natural eyelash is 90 days.
