It's a season for eyelash extensions!
Most women don’t have the time or patience to apply fake eyelashes every day. (We barely have enough time to use an eyelash curler!) So it’s no surprise that lash extensions have become increasingly popular in recent years.
There are three types of lash extensions: synthetic, silk and mink. Size availability ranges from 6mm to 17mm. Once selected, the lashes are applied one at a time using a specially formulated, semi-permanent glue that will not irritate the eye nor damage the natural lash.
Applying a full set of lashes takes about two hours, and can be maintained year-round with touch-ups recommended every three to four weeks. Lash extensions last through a full growth cycle of natural eyelashes, typically six to eight weeks. That said, because each person’s lash growth is somewhat variable (just hair growth), we suggest light lash maintenance every three to four weeks to maintain a full look.
Now that you've got all the basics down, know that lash extensions are not as high maintenance as people think. If you’re a first time wearer, these may seem a little overwhelming on day one, but you will get used to it after one week and be batting those full lashes in no time.<< SpaClinique London Blog
