Eyelash extensions offer fuller and longer looking lashes that are sure to wow anyone. They may be a laborious process, but the outcome is worth the time.

One of the most important factors you need to consider before going in for a lash appointment is the price. The costs of eyelash extensions vary from salon to salon. According to The Eyelash Extensions Blog, some places can cost as little as $81.00. However, some are more expensive with prices starting at $120.00. Also, it’s important to note that there are two payments. You have to pay for the initial set, and then for the upkeep appointments afterward. So, it might be time to break that piggy bank.

Most importantly, do your research. You want to ensure you’re paying for what you’re getting. Researching salons before you head in can help reduce any surprises when you’re done with your session.

So, you’ve found your salon, now what?

Well, first you need to choose a style for your eyelash extensions. Some of the styles available are soft and natural or bold and glam. It all depends on your personal preference.

Eyelash Extensions Aftercare

Before you take your glorious lashes out on the town, there are a few important aftercare details to note before you destroy them because they’re a lot more fragile than you realize.

We know you’re ready to start accentuating your new lashes with mascara, but this will absolutely harm them.

Also, make sure to brush the lashes. Just like the hair on your head, the lashes can get twisted.  Use a spooley brush to tame them. Lastly, resist the urge to pull at or rub your eyes. This will cause the extensions to fall out.

According to Real Simple, you should use oil-free makeup remover. Using makeup remover with oil can damage your lashes.

Lash extensions call for monthly upkeep. You’re most likely going to have to get them filled often, so keep this in mind when choosing to get lash extensions. It really is a commitment.
