Salon Talk: Semi-Permanent Eyelash Extensions
Eyelash extensions has grown to be a huge trend influencing not only celebrities but everyday working women like hairstylist, cashiers, college students and health care professionals like me!Â Â Recently, I had the opportunity to receive this procedure in Atlanta, GA. Semi-permanent eyelashes are enhancements to the natural lashes making them look longer, thicker and most importantly like your veryÂ own. Eyelash extensions are great for everday use as well as special occasions.
What are they exactly???
Semi-permanentÂ lashes areÂ made from synthetic fibers. They are very light weight and you wonâ€™t even notice the difference of them being attached once the procedure is done. Each lash is applied toÂ your natural lashes one by one. How well you take care of your lashes will determine how long the lashes will last. Natural lashes will fall out every 60-90 days and a new lash is produced immediately after. The benefit of semi-permanent eyelashes is when your natural lash begins to fall out; the extended lash attached to it will fall off with it.
My horror story with flare lashesâ€¦
Now before being introduced to semi-permanent eyelashes I use to wear â€śflaresâ€ť.Â Flare eyelashes are extensions with a cluster of lashes for one individual attachment. What I HATED the most about these lashes was the heaviness and the obvious fakeness of the look! The main reason why I stop wearing flares is because they weighed down my natural lashes and caused them to fall out. My own lashes had bald spotsâ€Ľ! When I got these lashes not many people around me was wearing them. So when I was working or out in public with my flare lashes people would be like, â€śOoh, who did yo lashesâ€Ľ?â€ťÂ (In my hood girl voice). Well I didnâ€™t want that type of attention. I wanted my lashes to look like my very own. Have you ever seen someone who had naturally long eyelashes and when they put on some mascara their eyes just POPPED?Â It makes you wish you were born with those lashes. You can get that very same effect from semi-permanent eyelashes!
How long does this procedure take?
The duration of this service takes approximately 2-3 hours.Â
How long will these lashes last?
Semi-permanent eyelashes can hold for 1.5-2 months. Touch ups are recommended every 2-3 weeks depending on how well you care for your lashes.
Is this procedure safe?
Absolutely! Why do you think Iâ€™m raving about them?! The best thing I enjoyed about this procedure is the adhesive did not burn my eyes. Â Many salons eyelash glue contain dangerous chemicals. Iâ€™ve seen some use crazy glue and hair bonding glueâ€¦WTFT? (What the French toast) JÂ One of the main ingredients in most eyelash adhesives is Formaldehyde.Â Certified technicians use safe adhesive without the harmful chemicals.
You can do everything with these lashes! Swim, sit in a sauna, shower and play sports. You can also get that eye popping experience by applying mascara specifically formulated for eyelash extensions.
