What are eyelash extensions?
It is important that when you clarify that you provide lash extensions as a salon technician, they are INDIVIDUALLY APPLIED lash extensions, ie one lash glued onto one of the clients natural lashes. Many salons will market their salon as performing eyelash extensions when in fact they are temporary lashes that last for a temporary period (up to two weeks). Lash extensions should never be considered eyelash extensions if the synthetic lash is applied to more than ONE natural lash at a time.
Each synthetic lash will adhere to each natural lash using a PROFESSIONAL ADHESIVE for a lengthy period of time, ie 4 weeks plus, ideally the full period of the lash life.
There are different types of lash extension applications, some of which are offered by salons with different rates charged for each.
- Classic eyelash extensions
- Russian volume eyelash extensions
- Pre made/pre fanned volume eyelash extensions
