Who wouldn’t want eyelashes that are a bit thicker, longer and shaped perfectly to your eyes? The question is do we want to spend the time necessary daily to get this look? You have several options to enhance your lashes. You can apply layers of mascara and try to stay un-clumped. Mascara will often run, flake or smear.  Then you apply eyeliner to define your eye shape. Or folks will glue on fake eyelashes in the morning and hope they last all day. Have you ever noticed someone’s fake eyelashes lifting on the corners? Yikes, so embarrassing. Traditional false eyelashes are applied directly to the skin and have pre-designed depth and sizes that doesn’t take your unique eye shape into account. These typically look fake and don’t last.

If you want a better way to your glamorous eyes, ditch the mascara and/or your false eyelashes and try a semi-permanent option that lasts longer and looks better. Eyelash extensions might be your answer.

Eyelash extensions are designed to lift and enhance the shape of your eyes. These lashes make your eye shape and color more prominent. Mornings just got easier. Wake up looking refreshed and ready to go. No need for mascara or eyeliner. Eyelash extensions give you a dramatic lash look 24/7.

What are eyelash extensions? They are semi-permanent lashes that are hand-glued on top of your natural lashes. These lash extensions are glued on individually, strand by strand to your natural hairs with a nontoxic, and non-irritating glue. Your lash technician can recommend how long and which type of lashes are best for you and your face.

Lashes can be made from many materials. They are typically synthetic material specially designed for lashes. They can also be faux mink or silk lashes. Your lash professional may style the lashes a little longer on the outer part of your eyes to enhance your eye shape.

If you take care of your eyelash extensions, they can last for six to eight weeks until they shed naturally with your own lashes. It may take 6-8 weeks for all the lashes to shed. However, realistically to keep your lashes looking voluminous you may want to do a fill every three weeks. Each person varies on how fast their lashes shed. If you get fills your lashes can stay long forever.

If you are wondering whether they will hurt your natural lashes here is the reality. Quality lashes put on by a certified lash technician should not damage your lashes. There are some fewer quality lashes that are glued on in groups for quick application by uncertified lash technicians. These are not recommended, if they are too heavy, they will break your lash.

If all that sounds confusing, don’t worry—a certified lash specialist will help you make the best decision for your lashes. They will recommend the type of material you should get, what length, what curl pattern and how many lashes are added at one time. They look at eye shape and size as well as your face and hair to find the best look for each individual.

Aftercare is easy. Don’t get them wet for the first 24 hours. After 24 hours you can shower and swim with your lashes. Try not excessively rub your eyes, keep high water pressure from direct contact. Nuance Salon includes a little aftercare bag with aftercare instructions and lash brush with each lash service.
