Understanding Lash Extensions

Let's start simple - what are lash extensions? Extensions are a fantastic way to add not just length, but volume to your lashes. If you’re anything like me, you’ve got short little stubby lashes that just don’t show up nicely in photos. Lash extensions are an easy way to make you feel ready to start any day. No mascara, often even no makeup, and you’re ready to go. They can make you feel feminine, flirty, and a whole lot more fun. To get you started, we’re going to cover two ways to make your lashes pop. Lash extensions, but also a lash lift

Lash Extensions:

Lash extensions are individual lashes applied gently to each of your natural eyelashes. They can be completely customised to your needs and there’s a huge range of options. From classic to Russian volume, there’s an option to suit everyone and every occasion. They do need regular maintenance, generally a trip to your specialist every 3 weeks is needed to keep them looking spectacular. 

Lash Lift:

If you don’t like the idea of all the maintenance, and the cost, then a lash lift could be the perfect option for you. A lash lift lasts for up to three months and takes around an hour or so to do. You can have this done in a salon, or you can take advantage of our amazing lash lift kits. That’s right, perform your very own lash lift in the comfort of your own home. A lash lift leaves your lashes with a noticeable curl. This helps to make them appear longer and fuller. So go on, try our lash lift kit today. 

Let's talk about maintenance for your extensions:

  •  Gentle daily cleansing: So often, people think that you can’t touch your extensions for the risk of them falling off. This simply isn’t true. Cleaning your lashes daily helps to make them last longer and look better, plus your lash tech will thank you a thousand times over. Use a specific lash cleaner, to ensure you don’t loosen the adhesive. A foaming cleanser is generally best. 
  • Avoid Rubbing: Do you wake up, stretch, and rub your eyes? Unfortunately, if you’ve got lash extensions, that’s one thing you’ll need to take out of your morning routine. Rub your eyes gently if you absolutely have to. But always avoid rubbing the eyelashes directly. 
  • Regular Refills: Lash extensions grow out naturally, so you’ll need to schedule regular refills to keep your flutter in perfect condition. This varies from person to person, and your lash tech will help you figure out your natural lash cycle. 
  • Protect While Sleeping: Are you a side sleeper? Consider getting some specialised sleeping covers or a silk pillowcase. If possible, avoid side sleeping all together to keep your lashes looking luscious for longer.
