Many women go for eyelash extensions without knowing what will happen during the procedure or whether or not it's for them. There are some things mentioned in this post that should be considered before going for eyelash extensions.
What You Should Know About Eyelash Extensions Many people turn to eyelash extensions when they want long, beautiful, luscious lashes. But, surprisingly, most people don’t know a lot about the lashes or the extension procedure. However, if you’re thinking about eyelash extensions, you’ll need to know what you’re getting into before you get into it. Below are five things you should know about eyelash extensions. Extensions Can Be Customised Eyelash extensions can look and function however the customer wants. They come in a variety of types, styles and lengths and can be attached in several ways. Synthetic lashes are the cheapest, most common lash type, but eyelashes are available in mink or silk materials. Mink lashes offer the most dramatic look and the highest price. On the other hand, silk lashes are affordable and offer a realistic look and feel. But, no matter what lashes you choose, they’re all semi-permanent, meaning they’ll have to come off some time. Lash extensions can also be as long and as curly as you like. Extensions range from 6mm to 17mm and from straight to C-shaped. Although, J-shaped lashes are the most popular.

Fortunately, eyelash extensions and the glue used to attach them are completely safe. The lashes are made from harmless materials, and the glue is specially formulated for use around the eyes. Glues are also formaldehyde and toxin-free and rarely cause irritation, unless you’re allergic to some of the ingredients in the formula. If you are, you may experience mild irritation and itching, which warrants immediate removal. The Procedure Takes Time Getting eyelash extensions isn’t something that can be done on your lunch break. The procedure takes at least an hour, and in some cases, can take up to three hours to complete. However, the amount of time it takes to apply lashes depends on the lash type and shape. All lashes are delicate and must be applied carefully (which can contribute to the amount of time it takes to complete the procedure), but some are more delicate than others. For
