Another popular service for the eyes is eyelash extensions. Lash extensions are applied individually on each eyelash to add length, thickness and fullness to natural lashes. Hollywood and HDTV have made eyelash extension a hot trend, the bigger the better. Eyelash extensions vary in prices from $100 – $500 and it takes approximately 2 hours to apply them the first time around. However, it’s a semi-permanent treatment and on the average the extension can last from two weeks to two months – it all depends on your
eyelash growth and it’s inevitable that the extensions will grow out. It’s also important you find an esthetician or cosmetologist who has additional training and certification in eyelash extensions. There are many companies who create the synthetic lashes, including: Novalash, Lavish Lashes, Lash Out and Xtreme Lashes (just to name a few). The good news is most of these websites have a directory where you can find local certified lash stylist. However, make sure you ask questions during you consultation including: the
cost to up keep the lashes; where the lashes are made; what the lashes are made of; and options on the adhesive that is used to set the lashes as well as any health or safety concerns.
Lastly, you can always try out the eyelash or eyebrow enhancers like Revitalash or Latisse. There are also new mascaras or makeup techniques you can learn to enhance the eyes, especially on YouTube.
