Eyelash Extensions 101

Eyelash Extensions 101

What is one piece of makeup that you cannot leave the house without? For the majority of people they would say its mascara! Now what if you could wake up with long luscious lashes and completely eliminating your use of mascara? We have a solution, one that is currently all the rage; Eyelash Extensions!

So what are Eyelash Extensions and are they worth the hype?

Let’s start with the application process and what they are made of! Extensions come in a range of materials, thickness and curl options. Eyelashes can be made of mink, sable, faux mink, silk, cashmere or synthetic acrylic. Here at TSPA we use a faux mink. It’s important that your stylist understand the thickness and  the curl on your extension, for it to follow the curl of your natural lashes and for your natural lash to support the extension.

The initial application process can take up to 3 hours, while touchups between one to three weeks can take up to an hour.

A single lash extension, ranging in sizes, is attached — one by one — to the natural eyelash. The application is painless and your eyes are closed the entire time!

So how long do they last? Depending on your lifestyle and your at home skin care routine they can last anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks. You will need a touch up anywhere between 1 to 3 weeks to add or adjust any lashes.

What’s the cost? Here at TSPA Ft.Myers, our price starts at $55 for your first full set and  $30 for any touchups! Our lash artists will give you all the info you need on home lash care and be able to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

So what are the benefits of this new trend?

Other than the obvious luscious lashes. Lash extensions allow you to ditch your mascara, eyeliner, and lash curler, saving you time in the morning.
