What Are Eyelash Extensions
Simply put, eyelash extensions give you full, long, dark lashes every day without the need to apply mascara. Sounds great doesn't it!
If you are like most of my clients you have probably contemplated getting lash extensions many times before. Maybe you aren't sure if it is for you as you don't know enough about what is involved.
If you want to be in the know, to decide if you want to give lash extensions a try, then keep reading and of course feel free to contact me to ask any questions you may have.
Firstly, eyelash extensions aren't the same as strip lashes which involve the gluing of a strip of lashes to your lash line.
Lash extensions are a semi-permanent option, where a qualified lash technician applies an individual lash extension to each individual natural lash with a lash adhesive. Because lash extensions don't come in one strip they are customisable and look real, giving you a fresh mascara, fuller and more dramatic look.
Get your lash extensions from a reputable and qualified technician.
When it comes to lash extensions, like most things in life, you get what you pay for. Saving in the short term can result in poorly applied and not so great looking lashes. It could even lead to infected lashes or damage to your lashes. So if you decide to give lash extensions a try and you don't choose me then please make sure you use a qualified (ask to see qualification certificates) and insured technician (again ask to see certificate).
The below image shows a client who had a nightmare experience which we removed and applied a fresh new set of classic lashes.
What lash extensions do you want, there are some choices.
Seen someone else's lashes that you love?
Just because someone else has a certain type of lash doesn't mean your own natural lashes can support the same look. The type of lashes you can have all depends on the length and strength of your natural lashes. Opting for lashes that are too thick or too long can actually cause damage in the long term.
It all sounds overwhelming, but Zoe will advise you what the right length and thickness is for your eyes.
The next options to consider are curl and density. Curl is simply the shape of the lash extensions and density is the number of lash extensions you want applied, the more that are applied the more dramatic the look. Zoe's standard full set of classic eyelash extensions involves all of your natural lashes having an extension applied giving you a fuller look, whilst a standard full set of volume eyelash extensions involve all of your natural lashes having three or four finer lash extensions applied giving you a more glamorous look.
Some lash technicians charge on a time basis so you don't really know how many lashes you are getting. Zoe has chosen not to do it this way, to offer clients a clear and simple treatment.
