Classic lash extensions come in a variety of fibers, the most common these days being a “Faux Synthetic Mink” due to it being the softest and most natural feeling. As well as this, extensions also come in many different lash curls, lengths and thicknesses which all play an important factor in how a finished set of lash extensions will look on each client.Classic Eyelash Extensions involves the process of carefully applying a single extension fiber to a single natural healthy eyelash at approximately .5 of a millimeter away from the eyelid skin making it very precise work that requires a great deal of concentration. A typical full set of Classic lashes can vary from having 40 extensions up to 150 extensions per eye depending on the clients desired look and of course how many natural healthy lashes they have to begin with!
Lash Tip: If you’ve ever had eyelash extensions that feel like they’re pulling at your skin, sore spots along your lid line or like you have match sticks attached to your lashes it’s more than likely because the stylist has attached extensions to your skin instead of to your natural lashes. Not good.Or equally as bad, they have glued multiple extensions to multiple natural lashes which can result in severely damaged lashes. This is because each of our natural lashes grows at a different rate so when there is an extension that is attached to several lashes they can literally rip your natural lashes out as they grow! OUCH!
This is why Eyelash Extensions should only ever be applied by an experienced professional. Continued poor lash extension application can cause irreparable damage to your natural lashes and they may not grow back. Your eye health is far too important to take unnecessary risks so research your Lash Salon options carefully before deciding who to make an appointment with.
