Eyes play a very important role in how we are perceived by the world. As the saying goes, “eyes are the windows to the soul.” However, since our eyes are such powerful indicators of who we are, why wouldn’t we want to frame them in the most beautiful way possible?
That’s why unDONE Salon adores the idea of boosting your self-confidence with Boise eyelash extensions. Not only are they a long lasting solution compared to the everyday task of applying mascara, they require little to no maintenance from the moment you wake up. What else would we want to provide our clients?
If you’ve been thinking about getting Boise eyelash extensions but want more information, we’d like to provide you with the following list of things to know before your first eyelash appointment.
Boise Eyelash Extensions.
What are the most common types of lash extensions?
When it comes to Boise eyelash extensions, there is a large variety of options to choose from. Sizes range from 6mm to 17mm in length with volume extensions ranging between 60 to 600 lashes per eye and various degrees of curl Once selected, the eyelash extensions are applied one at a time using a specially formulated semi-permanent glue that will not irritate your eyes or natural lashes. However, since allergic reactions can happen (rarely), depending on your sensitivity, there are different types of glue that can be used to eliminate any problems or irritation.
How long does it take?
A full set of eyelash extensions can take approximately two hours and can be maintained year-round with touch-ups every 3 – 4 weeks. Also, it’s important to note that it’s a very relaxing and enjoyable process. You simply lie down and close your eyes while your Boise hair salon esthetician works on your lashes!
How long do you have to wait to swim or bathe?
It’s important to stay away from water for the first 12 – 24 hours after application or touch-ups. Water can weaken the adhesive before it has time to set, causing the eyelash extensions to fall out. It’s also important to avoid rubbing your eyes or pulling on your lashes with an eyelash curler. However, once set, your eyelash extensions are waterproof which will allow you to shower, swim, exercise, etc.
Is it okay to also wear mascara?
Since extensions actually provide you with the illusion of wearing mascara, you don’t really need it. However, if you are planning on wearing mascara, it’s important not use an oil-based or waterproof formula since they can dissolve the bonding agent, and cause your extensions to fall out. Also, if you do use mascara, apply it only to the tips of the extensions with a very light hand in order to give your eyes the “pop” you’re looking for.
Will your natural lashes get harmed or damaged?
Eyelash extensions will not damage or ruin your natural lashes. However, it’s important to have them applied correctly by a Boise hair salon esthetician in order to guarantee the health and safety of your eyes and lashes. With proper application, eyelash extensions will look and feel completely natural.
