Long, full, standout eyelashes....I'm pretty sure that is every girls dream. My natural lashes aren't awful, but for the longest time I have been envying all of those girls with luscious long eyelashes. I had heard good and bad things about lash extensions, but I still needed to know for myself. I am so grateful to have found Susan with Wink Lash Bar because she has been so incredibly helpful in laying out the facts for me and giving me the 101 on eyelash extensions. So, if you are like me and are interested but need to know a little more, keep reading because I am going to share my whole experience.
After her own experiences and taking the time to learn the in's and out's of lash extensions, one of the most important things to Susan is making sure your natural lashes are (and stay) healthy. Eyelash extensions are different from strip lashes because they are more "permanent" and can stay on your lashes for 2-3 weeks. So if you're looking to get the whole Kim K. super full eyelash look, slow your roll because not everyone's lashes are fit for that style.
The eyelash technicians at Wink Lash Bar take the time to analyze each persons lashes and make sure to find a style and fit that is perfect for YOU. After picking out the curl and style of lashes that you like, your technician will take you back to your cabana where she will look at your natural lashes to see what will work best with you. Depending on how thick or thin your natural lashes are can determine how much weight your lashes can hold from the extensions. You don't want to put too much because that can damage your natural lashes and cause them to break. The process takes about 1 - 1.5 hours and the whole time you are laying down with your eyes closed, which is super relaxing and a great time to get away from our busy lives for just a little bit. My technician, Dulce, was super sweet and made me feel so comfortable. She explained to me how to care for my lashes and products that you should steer clear from like products with oils in them.
I think my absolute favorite part of having these lashes is that you can wake up and not put any makeup on and still look like a total smoke show because your eyelashes will stand out. They are really easy maintenance and are a lot less expensive than you may think.
If you have any other questions that I didn't answer about the eyelash extension process, feel free to leave me a comment or send me an email at email@example.com and I will try and answer as best as I can!
Now before you go, I HAD to share this absolutely adorable floral off the shoulder top with you guys. I seriously got so many compliments on this top when I wore it and it is actually under $20!! It is loose fitting but looks adorable with some skinny jeans or front tucked into some cutoff shorts!
