Who doesn’t love long, beautiful lashes? The best part? They enhance your eyes and overall look! If you’re lucky enough to have naturally long lashes, simply curling them and using mascara may be enough to enhance them. However, not all of us are blessed with luscious lashes. While you can always purchase fake eyelashes at your local beauty store, they can be hard and time-consuming to apply. Not to mention expensive.
That’s where eyelash extensions come in! With eyelash extensions, you let the beauty experts at unDONE Salon do the job. With us, you simply lie back, relax, and in an hour or two, you will get the sexy, beautiful eyelashes you’ve always dreamed of. That’s why we’d like to provide you with the following Boise eyelash extension guide if you’ve been thinking about getting them.
The Application Process
First and foremost, there are different types of eyelash extensions. These range from silk, mink, and synthetic that vary in size from 6mm to 17mm. These extensions are applied by a professional technician that specializes in eyelash extensions. The process involves applying the lashes one by one using a special glue to hold them into place. If you’re worried about having a reaction or going blind from the glue, it’s important to know that the special eyelash glue we use is formulated to be eye-friendly and won’t damage your eyes or natural eyelashes.
The entire application process can take 1-2 hours. After that regular maintenance touch-ups will be required approximately every 3-4 weeks. We will also recommend a certain length for your extensions depending on your natural eyelashes overall condition. This will ensure your natural lashes stay healthy after applying the extensions.
Common Eyelash Misconceptions
While many people are okay with DIY false eyelashes, others like the option of having them professionally applied without the tedious task of applying them daily. However, some people may be apprehensive due to the following eyelash extension misconceptions.
It Causes Blindness
During the application process, you will be asked to keep your eyes closed for the duration of the procedure. This ensures nothing will get into your eyes, including the glue. In a worst case scenario, you may experience an extremely rare allergic reaction. However, this won’t result in blindness. For treatment, you will need to talk with your doctor about your specific allergies and take recommended medication to relieve any symptoms.
Your Natural Eyelashes Will Fall out
No evidence suggests eyelash extensions will make your natural lashes fall out. Instead, natural eyelashes grow in and fall out in cycles, which can occur every 60-90 days. That’s why it’s completely normal if you notice any eyelash shedding. Regular eyelash extensions, however, will help to ensure your natural eyelashes and extensions are in overall good condition.
Maintaining Your Eyelash Extensions
Below are some tips to ensure your eyelash extensions are in top condition and last as long as possible:
- Avoid using mascara with eyelash extensions. This can cause them to break off from your natural lashes when you wash your makeup off at the end of the day.
- Never rub or tug at your eyelash extensions. Instead, use soft, makeup remover pads and wipe them gently in a downwards motion with a recommended cleanser when washing your face.
- Don’t swim or shower for at least 24 hours after getting professional eyelash extensions. While you can still bathe, it’s important to avoid getting your eyelashes wet.
