Recently, new clients have been coming in for a lash fix. This means that they had eyelash extensions done elsewhere, and came to us because they were not satisfied with what they got. There are different reasons as to why this has been happening, but they all revolve around one thing: quality over quantity.
Take a look at the before photo below. This woman’s eyelashes looked good when looking at them from the front, but when our Lash Artist took a look at the application of the eyelash extensions from above, she was shocked at the poor quality technique that was practiced in applying these lashes. If you look closely, there are between 3-8 false flare lashes glued to one natural lash. This is extremely damaging to the natural lash, as the correct application technique is a 1:1 synthetic to natural lash ratio. In addition, flare lashes are supposed to be glued with temporary lash glue, as they are for temporary use only. These were applied with semi-permanent lash adhesive. Excessive adhesive and eyelashes will cause discomfort, eye irritation, and lash damage.
If you look at the photo of her natural lashes after removal, there are a few bald spots. This is because there was too much stress on the natural lash, as it had to support more than one eyelash. Luckily, she had a good amount of long natural eyelashes left, so we were able to give her a new set of properly applied eyelash extensions.
It’s important to realize that eyelash extensions are more than just a way to stop wearing mascara. They are an investment in yourself. Just like anything else important in your life, it requires routine care and a financial commitment if you want it to work. Here is a guideline for making smart and informed decisions when choosing eyelash extensions, we hope that this will help you!
