The Booming Trend of Eyelash Extensions: What You Need to Know

The beauty industry is constantly evolving, with some trends quickly fading away and others sticking around for a while. Research shows that eyelash extensions are a booming trend that is quickly becoming everyone's favorite beauty treatment. The eyelash industry has a bright future ahead of it and is far from being a fad. Eyelash extensions have become increasingly popular due to their ability to add volume and length to natural eyelashes. Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent eyelashes that are glued by hand over natural eyelashes, according to Andra Marin, artistic director and expert eyelash stylist at Courtney Akai Lash Boutique in New York.

Unlike strappy eyelashes, eyelash extensions are individually glued to natural hair, making them highly customizable and looking real. Women love eyelash extensions because they make their eyes look younger, more dazzling, more alert and beautiful, while saving time on beauty tasks such as applying mascara. Usually, I am awakened by the breeze of a small fan that the technician points to my eyelashes to help dry the adhesive when the service is finished. The arrival of eyelash extensions has also paved the way for many products, such as eyelash cleansers, eyelash sticks, lint-free applicators, eyelash fans, and even silk pillowcases (to keep eyelash extensions from being damaged while you sleep). Read on for all the basics you'll be happy to know (I wish I knew the bar) before an appointment for eyelash extensions. In addition, eyelash technicians design a pair of tailor-made eyelash extensions with different lengths, curls and diameters to create a personalized look based on your preferences, the shape of the eyes and the natural characteristics of the eyelashes.

If you take good care of them (more on that later), eyelash extensions can last six to eight weeks until they fall out naturally, as eyelashes usually do. Popular cosmetic brands already manufacture products intended exclusively for those who use eyelash extensions. Having several types of eyelash extensions and different types of glue for extensions is a great way to invite a much wider range of customers to your eyelash extension business. If you want more volume, the eyelash technician can apply a few extensions to a single natural eyelash, which is commonly referred to as a fan lash or volume tab. For the uninitiated but curious, I asked the owners of four eyelash extension salons (and an eye doctor) what to expect when it is extended.

According to experts at Reign Studio, the best reason why eyelash extensions are so popular among 18-35 year olds is that they save a lot of time on a daily makeup routine that would otherwise take a long time. Thanks to advanced technology, eyelash extension providers can now provide thousands of different types of eyelashes. Eyelash extensions can reshape the eyes and can help with hooded eyes, monopharpads, small eyes, and other problems. After the consultation, don't let the extensions get wet for the next 24 hours so that the glue dries completely. With proper care and maintenance, you can enjoy your beautiful lashes for weeks!.
