Extending Beauty

There are multiple types of extensions, including some for your eyelashes. Eyelash extensions are applied one false lash at a time, giving you that full and natural effect.

Eyelash extensions come in different sets, depending on what you desire. Maybe you’re looking for a light, natural look, or even a dramatic, comprehensive appearance.

Services for a full set of lashes start at about $120, lasting approximately three weeks. When getting eyelash extensions each eyelid holds up to 150 to 200 eyelashes. This process can be an hour, sometimes even close to two hours.     

Eyelashes are a small feature on our face that make a huge difference.

Eyelash extensions require a lot of care, and patience; not only for the person applying them, but for the client. Extensions must be handled with care.

It’s recommended to keep any kind of oils away from them. When it comes to showering water must be kept off lashes. Following instructions that the salon provides will extend the wearability of the lashes.

Natural lashes don’t necessarily get damaged with extensions unless you pull them off yourself, and you purposely play with them. Experts recommend knowing the commitment before purchasing the lashes.
