Ready or not the holiday season is starting, and whether you’re celebrating low-key or planning large gatherings with family and friends this is one time of year that you want to make sure that you look your best. One thing you can do ahead of time to make sure you have gorgeous eyes for all of your holiday get-togethers is get lash extensions.
New To Lash Extensions?
If you’re not already familiar with lash extensions you’re probably wondering what they are. You’re probably thinking they are similar to false lashes, but they are really quite different. False lashes typically come in strips that are glued to your lid along the lash line and need to be reapplied daily. On the other hand lash extensions are individually applied directly to our natural lashes giving you a completely natural look, and they stay in place until your natural lashes shed in about 4-6 weeks.
Are Lash Extensions Right For You?
Lash extensions will work for anyone that has natural eyelashes and would like to give them a boost. Extensions can be customized to the length, color, shape, and fullness that you want. So, if you wish our lashes were fuller or longer, extensions are right for you.
How To Prepare For Your Appointment
You don’t need to do much to prepare for an extension application appointment. Just make sure your eyes are clean and makeup free with no injuries or signs of infection and that your lashes are uncurled. If you wear contacts they will need to be removed and cannot be reinserted for 3 hours, so wear or bring glasses if you need them. That’s all there is to it. All you have to do after that is decide which application you want. Let’s take a look at the different options now.
Get a Classic Look With Classic Lash Extensions
If you’re going for a simple and classic look a classic lash application is just what you need. You get a noticeable lash transformation while maintaining a natural look. Single extensions are attached to your natural lashes to give them a gentle yet dramatic boost that doesn’t look overdone.
Get Vivacious Lashes With Volume Extensions
If you want lashes that will make people sit up and take notice, volume extensions are right for you. Two or more extensions are applied to single natural lashes in a fan shape creating lush and voluminous lashes that command attention. The look that volume lashes create is simply mesmerizing.
Hybrid Lashes Offer the Best Of Both Worlds
Hybrid lashes combine the techniques of both classic and volume applications. A single extension is applied to some lashes while multiple extensions are applied to others. The results are a much fuller look than a classic application but more subtle than the volume application. The results are a full lash line with just the right texture.
How To Care For Your New Extensions
You will need to avoid getting our extensions wet for the first 24 hours following application. This gives the bond time to fully set. After that, you can resume your usual activities. You should avoid the use of any oil-based eye products as the oils can weaken the bonds and cause lash loss. Using the recommended lash cleaner and brush daily will help your extensions last as long as possible. You should avoid rubbing, picking, or curling your lashes to avoid damaging your extensions. Plan on a fill-in appointment to replace shed extensions every 2-3 weeks to keep your lashes full and beautiful.
