Eyelash extensions can be a beautiful, albeit expensive, way to enhance your natural eyelashes without mascara or strip false lashes. These individually applied lashes can look surprisingly natural. With the exception of the expense and the appointment time, it means waking up each morning looking fabulous.
Other than the doctor-prescribed most cosmetic products claiming to grow lashes don’t work. And although there are great mascaras, they rarely, if ever, perform like the ads say they will (just look a little closer, the women in almost every mascara ad have false eyelashes on).

Lash extensions are individually applied synthetic or natural hair fibers attached to the base of each eyelash with surgical glue. Each fake lash is applied one by one (it’s a painstaking, time-consuming process) to your own eyelashes.
If you are very, very careful in how you take care of your eye area after having lash extensions applied, and have touchups every two to three weeks, your lash extensions can hold up pretty well. But straying from the guidelines can cause a mess, with the lashes coming off sooner than they would have otherwise.
Subsequent appointments after your initial application is mandatory for maintenance. How often you need a “fill” depends on your own natural eyelash growth cycle and on how well you take care of your lashes. Taking care of your lash extensions is a big deal.

Research your lash professional. It’s best if your lash technician is professionally certified and trained in an established method of application. Don’t be embarrassed to ask about credentials; the best ones will be proud to show you their work.
Choose your look carefully, just the way you choose a hairstyle by looking at pictures. Most lash technicians will walk you through this. There’s a fine line between gorgeous, fluttery lashes and spidery, obviously fake-looking lashes.
Understand there are potential risks although they’re rare. The most common complaints about lash extensions are allergic reactions to the glue, eye infections from contact with unsanitary tools, or an infected follicle from two lashes being glued together, and/or from the glue itself clogging a hair follicle.
Understand the process of Eyelash Extensions
Applying a full set of new lashes can take anywhere from 90 to 180 minutes. Depending on the look you want to achieve, anywhere from 60–120 individual lashes will be applied to each eye. To prepare the eye area for extensions, your lash technician should be taping your lower lashes down to your skin, and placing hydrating eye pads on top. This is done to prevent the glue from getting on the lower part of your eye as lashes are applied.
