1. What are eyelash extensions?
Lash extensions are tiny black fibers that resemble eyelashes and that are attached to natural eyelashes using glue. The fibers either come as individual pieces or attached to a strip. Strip lashes can be applied by anyone. Professionals typically apply individual lashes. Our guide focuses on the latter because they're more complicated, not to mention expensive.
2. How do eyelash extensions work?
Licensed technicians carefully apply fake lashes by attaching the tiny extensions one-by-one to create a look that's both dramatic yet natural. After the service, lash extensions will last through a full growth cycle of your natural eyelashes. Though each person’s lash growth may vary, this process is generally between six to eight weeks. However, most technicians recommend touch-ups every three to four weeks.
3. How much do eyelash extensions cost?
Lash extensions range in cost, depending on the type of material used. But generally, an initial full-set lash application will cost somewhere between $150-$200. Monthly maintenance and refills, however, will run anywhere from $55-$65 per session. Mink lashes—reportedly the only type Beyoncé wears—typically cost $300 for a full set. Luckily, you can snag a full mink set on Groupon for as little as $72 and silk and synthetic for even less.
4. How long do eyelash extensions last?
Six to eight weeks. Lash extensions last through a full growth cycle of natural eyelashes, typically six to eight weeks. That said, because each person's lash growth is somewhat variable (just hair growth), I suggest light lash maintenance every three to four weeks to maintain a full look.
5. Can I wear eyeliner with lash extensions?
Liquid, cream, and pencil liners are risky with eyelash extensions. Oil-based liquid eyeliners are not recommended, because oil can weigh down the lashes and result in premature loss of the extensions. ... Powder eyeliner works best with eyelash extensions. Make sure you opt for an oil-free formulation.
