Hello lovers of the luscious, glamorous and so addicting eyelash extensions!
This is so popular and an extremely growing beauty procedure, started in 1916 when a film director wanted his actress to have lashes “that brushed her cheeks, to make her eyes shine larger than life.” Then he asked a local wig maker to come up with the first false eyelashes that were made of human hair woven through fine gauze. The addiction begin becoming very popular in 2005.
This beauty procedure can run between $200 and $500 per full set application. Single synthetic fibers made of polyester materials or real mink hair are added one by one to your natural eyelashes to get a fuller look. Using surgical grade adhesives, synthetic lashes or the real mink hairs are applied to natural lashes. Only licensed aestheticians may legally apply eyelash extensions in certain states. The procedure takes approximately one hour and a half to two hours for a full set of extensions.
They may be worn while sleeping, swimming or showering and may last indefinitely with refills every two to three weeks, depending on the cycle of hair growth. As the hair has its natural cycles, “growth phase”, “declination phase”, and “shedding phase”, the lash falls out naturally in the third phase, the shedding phase, dropping out the extensions with it. And a new growing cycle begins.
