Lashes are a girl’s best friend

Thursday, February 10, 2022


They come in various sizes and shapes, are either synthetic or natural hair fibers and typically last three to four weeks – eyelash extensions. Wearers are going to great lengths to make their eyes temporarily pop. 


Lash extensions are usually applied by a technician in a beauty salon, using tweezers and a specially formulated surgical glue applied to the base of your original eyelash. Though it’s rare, allergic reactions can sometimes occur. Test the glue on the underside of your wrist before you have it applied to a lash to make sure there is no reaction.  


While no one likes to see a precious eyelash fall out, even though it means you can make a wish, the good news is it only takes about six weeks for an eyelash to grow back. Or you can carve out a couple of hours for an appointment to have lash extensions applied. It takes patience to apply lashes one at a time and glue them perfectly on top of your natural eyelash. The lashes can be customized in silk, mink or synthetic, as well as length, thickness, style, curl and the number of lashes.  


Keep your standards high and your lashes long 

The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends you look carefully at the shop or salon, the aesthetician, and the products' ingredients before going ahead with eyelash extensions. An aesthetician with lash extension certification and experience should be a priority when taking the plunge to have fuller lashes.
