How many hours does lash extensions take?

The eyelash extension treatment lasts between 1 and 2 hours. The time it takes to fix the eyelashes depends mainly on the style of eyelashes you choose according to your technician. Phone calls and text messages can ruin your relaxing environment and add time to your visit (or reduce the number of tabs). Sabah Feroz, an expert in brow and eyelash extensions at Blink Brow Bar, tells her clients to wash their eyes when they clean their faces and to use an oil-free makeup remover if they have to clean their makeup.

Your technician will make marks on the pre-applied under-eye patches that will guide you when adding extensions to your natural eyelashes. After this step, eyelash dyeing and tightening procedures are performed and your technician will perform a final cleaning. An eyelash lift or eyelash perm is a treatment that uses a mix of chemicals to make natural eyelashes appear longer, fuller and curlier.

Eyelash extensions

are highly customizable and are available in different lengths, curls, styles and materials.

Micellar water is also a great option to preserve the adhesion of extensions and to remove dirt from them in general. Different eyelash artists classify what is considered a filler or a complete set differently. Most artists say that customers should have 50% or more extensions left to classify as filler, while some rate it as 60% or more. When deciding between these treatments, you should keep in mind that eyelash lifting consists of enhancing natural eyelashes, while eyelash extensions consist of attaching individual false eyelashes to the eyelashes and, of course, their duration is different.

After the shower, you can dry your eyelashes with the lightest, coolest settings, then brush and stretch them very lightly and without too much pressure. Eyelash extensions are individual semi-permanent fibers that are applied one by one to natural eyelashes, using a specialized semi-permanent adhesive. The last step of the eyelash lift procedure is to remove the silicone rods and clean the treated area. Ramy Gafni, famous makeup and brow guru, advises opting for extensions that align with the shape of your existing eyelashes, rather than extra long and dramatic eyelashes.
