Lash lifts. Now lash lifting just isn’t technically extensions of the attention whiskers. So why have I included them, I hear you asking? As a result of lash lifting is principally lash perming, or semi-permanent lash curling, which may make your lashes look longer and nonetheless fantastically improve your lashes. That is an possibility for individuals who need to seem to have longer lashes with out refills. Thus the inclusions.
Now that we’ve got recognized what lash choices we’ve got and what lash extensions are, why the hell are they so rattling standard….???
I’ve a number of theories,
With every thing turning into so quick paced in our society now, folks simply haven’t got time for the little issues like mascara. So, lash extensions are an awesome different. They offer size, quantity and definition with out having to fuss each morning.
It is usually turning into a factor for younger beauty strains corresponding to Kylie Cosmetics, Anastasia Beverly Hills and Huda magnificence to not even have mascara of their make-up strains! This creates extra want for shoppers to supply different lash enhancement choices.
My third speculation is that there’s rising hype concerning the make-up business on Social media. Celebrities really feel extra accessible than ever, being in your face each minute of each day on FB, Instagram, snap chat, twitter and Youtube, exhibiting you ways you need to look and even how you need to do your make-up. There has by no means in historical past been extra make-up How-To movies…EVER. The issue…. Persons are feeling much less assured about their pure selves. One thing which has all the time been a factor, however lately, in my expertise has turn out to be far worse. I’ve seen my business change fairly dramatically on this decade alone and I can very positively see a change in consumer’s attitudes towards their very own seems to be.
Celebrities on Social media is one thing, I imagine is pushing folks, (particularly these aged between 15-30) to search for extra everlasting magnificence enhancements, corresponding to lash extensions, microblading and lip fillers. Evidently if a celeb endorses it, it is going to promote. Regardless of how good or dangerous.
Take that bottle lip plumping fiasco dropped at you by a sure celeb for instance. Proof that there are folks so determined to alter their very own face and seem like their fave celeb, they may actually imagine and check out something, even probably the most ridiculous of concepts.
Now I’m not saying that celeb endorsements are a brand new factor, or that they’re all dangerous.
Celeb endorsements, to place it merely, is simply enterprise. I imagine all 3 of those theories put collectively are all causes that Lash extensions have turn out to be so massively standard. And I actually am not complaining. I do lash extensions and I educate folks to turn out to be lash technicians, so I’m very pleased they’re so standard. However after I realized to do them round 11years in the past, they weren’t that generally requested in any respect.
These are simply my theories as to why they’ve instantly turn out to be the factor to do.
The subsequent huge query is Do they destroy your pure lashes and make them fall out?
The fast reply is No. The largest fantasy is that Lash extensions trigger your pure lashes fall out, making them thinner and shorter. Right here is why I believe that fantasy exists;
While you get a full set and have them for a number of weeks, you get used to that look. While you take away them, the distinction between your shorter, thinner naturals turns into extra apparent and it seems they’re broken. They aren’t, they’re merely naturally not as lengthy or thick. Your entire purpose most individuals get the extensions within the first place.
Secondly, there’s a pure lash life cycle. We have all had an eyelash fall out on our cheeks, proper?? If an extension is glued to a pure hair that’s previous and scheduled to fall out tomorrow, it is going to take with it no matter is glued to it. That is the pure lash making the extension fall out, not the opposite means round.
lash tech ought to clarify this, to keep away from consumer freak outs.
If utilized and taken care of effectively, lash extensions mustn’t destroy your pure lashes and the glue is sort of robust, so the parable of constructing your naturals fall out, just isn’t even logical, as glue does one factor….. retains issues in place. Glue just isn’t designed to make issues fall out.
They are going to fall out nonetheless, if the glue is previous, the tech didn’t apply appropriately, the extension is simply too lengthy and thick for the pure to help, the consumer makes use of oil based mostly cleansers, the consumer rubs or pulls at them, the consumer just isn’t mild and doesn’t comply with the correct care necessities. That is not the lash’s fault, that is the people’ fault.
The final huge query is, “Ought to I get them??”
I hate to say this, however that’s completely as much as you.

Nobody can let you know what to do. I can solely provide the info for you to have the ability to make a high quality resolution for you. I do them, however do not put on them, why? As a result of I’m lazy and cannot be bothered with the upkeep and I am unable to do them on myself. However that’s me, I additionally cannot be bothered getting my nails performed, or carrying mascara both. Each individual is totally different. Do what you need to, however be sure to analysis your technician, you need a skilled one and to be sure to are pleased together with your outcomes.
