Eyelash Extensions Explained

, , ,

If you love the look of Lash Extensions, but don’t know if they’re quite right for you, here are a few things for you to help make your mind up what lash is right for you.

There are different weights in lashes

Classic lashes that are used in most eyelash treatments can feel heavy and thick, as the therapist usually applies one false lash to your own eyelash. If you want something that feels light and unnoticeable, go for Russian lashes. These are much lighter than classic lashes – and there’s usually four or five applied to one single lash in a ‘bunch’. Our Classic Lash Extension expert is Jennifer who will quite happily book you in for a treatment.


There are different curl options

One size definitely doesn’t fit all with lashes; you can make it as bespoke as you want. If you like them very curled and glamorous, you can ask for a C shape lash- which is exactly like the letter. Of course, for a more natural look, go for a straighter lash that will make your eyes look enhanced but not over the top.

Pick your length, too

If you like long fluttery lashes, ask for longer lashes on the outer lash line.  This will give you a pretty, flirty look. If you prefer your eyes to look more wide-open and fresh, then ask for longer lashes in the middle of your lash line. Just ask Maya when you either call or when you turn up for your appointment.

It will change how you wear your make-up

If you have always been an eyeliner lover, you will find that because of the density at the root tip thanks to the extra lashes, you can skip liner altogether. It’s a good opportunity to try any new eyeshadows. Just dab a little on your eyelid and the lash extensions will pull the whole look together and make your eyes look instantly ‘ready’.

They can last for eight weeks – but you’ll need to take care of them

Yes, they may be a low maintenance option if you can’t be bothered to apply daily eye make-up, but you still need to put a little effort in. Use a clean, disposable mascara wand (you can pick them up from any department store makeup counter) and brush through the lashes from root to tip every morning. It will make sure they stay even and clean.

Don’t pull them out – ever

Once they start falling out, resist the urge to pull them out. Come back to Maya and have them professionally removed, or wait for them to fall out naturally. Pulling them out is just going to yank out your natural lash, too. Ouch.
