Eyelash extensions are a great way to enhance your look and give you the long, lush lashes you've always wanted. But what exactly are eyelash extensions and what do you need to know before getting them? Read on to learn all about eyelash extensions, from the materials they're made of to the application process and maintenance. Eyelash extensions are made of a variety of materials, including silk, mink, synthetic mink, sable, cashmere, and synthetic acrylic. Each extension is attached one by one (or up to four at a time) to the base of the natural hair of the eyelashes with a semi-permanent adhesive. Unlike temporary false eyelashes, which are attached to the eyelid in a single strip, eyelash extensions are individual eyelashes that adhere directly to natural lashes.
This process takes several hours to complete. The type of material used for the extensions will determine the cost. Most eyelash extensions are made of a synthetic material called PBT, in our case, high-quality Korean PBT. The cost of eyelash extensions will be determined by the region where you live and where the extensions are made. It's important to note that there is no other substitute glue that can replace the retention and adhesion of the current eyelash extension adhesive. While damage to natural eyelashes is certainly not ideal (nor is it sustainable over time), any breakage or fall should resolve on its own in one to three months, as part of a typical eyelash growth cycle. When applying eyelash extensions, it's important to take a good look at the customer's natural eyelashes and decide what thickness is right for them.
The curliest curls may not have as good retention as straight curls, but they add drama and open up the eyes more. It's also important to make sure that customers don't have any leftover mascara or oils on their eyelashes when you apply their eyelash extensions. If they do, the adhesive won't last. Once you've applied the extensions, there is some maintenance involved. Gel eyelash pads secure the lower lashes firmly in place to allow for a clean and efficient application. The eyelash primer removes cosmetic residues, oil and dust from the client's eyelashes before applying the eyelash extensions.
High quality tweezers are an essential assistant for each and every semi-permanent eyelash extension application. Finally, it's important to remember that since an individual extension is applied to an individual eyelash, that extension will fall off by itself when the natural eyelash comes off. While it's true that eyelash extensions require less maintenance than using mascara or false eyelashes every day, they're not something you can forget either. Eyelash extensions can be a great way to enhance your look and give you long, lush lashes. Just make sure you understand all that goes into getting them and maintaining them so you can get the best results possible.
