Applying extensions to the eyelashes is a practice that enhances the length, thickness and fullness of natural eyelashes. The extensions may consist of silk, mink, synthetic hair, or human hair. The main method of applying eyelash extensions is individually (one-by-one). False eyelashes and eyelash extensions are not the same. Eyelash extensions must be applied one by one to avoid having them stick together.
Eyelash extensions are currently one of the most popluar beauty treatments!
Luscious eyelashes are extremely trendy and the treatments for Eyelash Extensions are the most frequently booked on GoBeauty.
The treatment for Eyelash Extensions is where eyelashes are applied to enhance the length, thickness and fullness of natural eyelashes.
The extensions can be made of mink, synthetic and silk. They are individually applied with a semi-permanent glue that will not damage the eye area or your natural lashes.
No one has time to apply fake eyelashes everyday, so this is the perfect solution to get full, luscious lashes.
A bit of advice, if you are allergic to formaldehyde or any other ingredient in the glue, make sure you chat to the therapist about the glue they use before you start.
Once you are sure and ready to go, it takes approximately two hours to apply a full set of lashes, so patience and time is very important here. You will discuss what type of lashes you’d prefer, as well as length with your therapist. The condition of your lashes also plays a big role here. If you have thin or short lashes, it might not be a good idea to immediately go too dramatic. It might be better starting out with a half set if you are a bit unsure.
Your therapist will then start to apply the individual lashes with the semi-permanent glue while your eyes are closed. Put your feet up and take a snooze here, you’ll be working hard showing off those amazing lashes after. This is not a painful exercise at all.
It is recommended not to expose your eyelashes to any steam from the shower or a sauna in the first 8 hours. It is also not recommended to swim about 24 hours after your extensions are applied. Listen carefully to the after-care advice your qualified therapist gives you. They will give you some good advice on which type of makeup and makeup removers are best for the maintenance of your extensions.
It will last for about six to eight weeks. But because the extensions will naturally fall out as the natural hair growth begins, it is recommended to do a touch up every three to four weeks.
