What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are individual lashes that are semi-permanently glued onto your natural lash hairs. Unlike strip lashes, which are applied all at once, lash extensions are added one by one, allowing for a highly customized and natural appearance.
What is the duration of eyelash extensions?
If you take good care of them (more details on that later), eyelash extensions can last from six to eight weeks, until they naturally fall out like your normal lashes. However, once they begin to shed, you can have your lash stylist fill in the missing pieces. In this way, you can technically maintain your eyelash extensions indefinitely.
