When it comes to the eyes how can you get that great celebrity look like Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton or Liz Hurley.How is it that their eyes seem so big and bright, while yours don’t seem noticeable at all no matter how much mascara you apply. Were they born with long luscious lashes or is their a secret to their beauty. Of course there is a secret. That secret is eyelash extensions.

Now this is not the old fashion false eyelashes that fall off and get stuck on your cheek or look like a spider attacking your eyes. This is professional quality individual lashes that give each one of your lashes a longer thicker appearance.

Okay so I’ve got your interest. Something you can have that will give you luscious eyes without looking fake. So lets get down to the important questions, what are they, how are they applies, how long does it take, what upkeep is needed and of course the cost. After all most of us are not on a celebrity budget.


What are Eyelash Extensions?

These are individual lashes that are applied one to one with your natural lashes. What this means is that one false eyelash which can be made of human hair or a synthetic fiber is applied to one of your lashes with a bonding agent (glue). Like I said this is not like fake eyelashes that are in a group on a band that gets applied all at once. This is a one to one ratio giving you a more natural and less messy look.

How long does it take to apply eyelash extensions?

Well this depends first on how many natural lashes you have. You may have 30 lashes or you may have 80 lashes. The more you have the longer it will take to apply being as they are applying one extension to one natural lash. Now if you have a lot of natural lashes you may choose to have extensions applied to every other lash. It’s whatever you choose. In general a eyelash extension appointment can lash up to 3 hours. Other factors that determine how long it will take depends on the professional applying the lashes and how much experience they have.

What is the upkeep for eyelash extensions?

You will need to make touch up appointments to keep the lashes longer. Your natural lashes fall out every 45 to 60 days, so the extension will also fall out with the natural lash. However you also have new lashes growing in all the time. An appointment every 2-3 weeks will help keep you lashes looking full and fresh. A touch up appointment only last for about 45 minutes since you don’t have as many lashes to apply.

The number one question. How much do eyelash extensions cost?

Even though we may want to look like a celebrity, few of us have a budget like a celebrity. So is this something we can afford. Most eyelash extension appointments are pricey, costing anywhere from $300 to $500 at top notch salons . That is usually out of most peoples budgets but we still want the glamorous look. Trying calling around their are often salons that offer the extensions for $100 for the first appointment. Also find out if you local beauty college is offering the service. They may have a discounted price for a student applying them even though there is always a professional around. If these are not for you then try a do it yourself  eyelash extension kit. Then you can save money and apply them in the comfort of your own home without having to wait for an appointment. Have a friend over and take turns getting the extensions put on, this way it saves both of you time and money.
