Eyelash Extensions. Are They Right For You?
More and more women today desire longer eyelashes. There are several methods in order to get lashes that look fuller, healthier, more attractive and, of course longer. One popular method is with eyelash extensions. Read on to find out if this popular way of improving your eyelashes is right for you. The first thing we need to talk about is the difference between eyelash extension methods. Generally, there are two methods when talking about extensions, surgical implant type or glue on type. Here’s some pro’s and con’s for both methods
Permanent Eyelash Extensions
These are an eyelash transplant. Using surgery and anesthesia, real eyelashes are transplanted into the eyelid to generate additional eyelash growth. This procedure is usually performed on those individuals who have lost their lashes due to cancer treatments or some genetic trait that inhibits natural eyelash growth. This is not a cheap alternative to those women who just want longer, fuller lashes.
This process attaches eyelash extensions to your natural lashes with a glue. They are ‘permanently’ bonded to your natural lashes and supposed to last 60-90 days thru the natural shedding of your lashes. Unfortunately this is rarely the case. Most only last a few days depending on the glue that is used because the adhesion to the natural lashes wears off. Eye extensions are fairly expensive. Depending upon the location, eyelash extensions will generally run the client from $150 to $600 and monthly touch-ups will be required in order for them to stay permanent. The touchups will generally run from $50 to $65
False lashes are basically just another term for strip lashes. Most often the term is used interchangeably with eyelash extensions but for most professionals, false lashes really means strip lashes. This method can be the quickest, most convenient and cost effective to get the lashes you desire. Consider the following benefits.
- Can use different lashes for different occasions. For example: wild, crazy lashes for special occasions like Halloween or elegant, sexy lashes for a night out with that special someone, etc.
- Very easy to put on and take off. Convenience and time saving may be exactly what you’re looking for.
- There are a large number of lashes you can try to get that ‘look’ you are going for
- False eyelashes can range anywhere from just a couple dollars per pair to the more expensive mink and other exotic material lashes. Plus, they can be used over and over again.
