Having been brought up in a conservative home sometimes made me feel like even the simple makeup was an odd thing to wear. Ever felt lonely, in your world, but in the midst of girls who are, dazzling like the princess of Wales? It is over three years since I was recruited in the club of eyelash extensions, and since then, I have become a beacon of beauty. Forget about the mascara you are used to; the real girl is let out when you have lashes that will naturally blend with your natural ones.
The modern salon
Salons have come from far to offering services like eyelash extensions that were once unheard of, and this has made it easy for one to share their beauty with the world. Tired of your short scattered eyelashes and you wonder how you can look more presentable. Walk to any modern Salon and get the touch; from 1-2 hours, you will come out ‘slaying’ like the queen of Sheba. Picking the right eyelash extension salon is very important, as not all are equal.
Eyelash extension – Just for esthetics- not permanent
Eyelash extensions are not permanent but are temporary where some semi-permanent glue is used to join with the natural lashes carefully. The adhesive can only hold them in place for not more than four weeks, and therefore you have to frequent the salon every three to four weeks for a retouch.
Looking for a salon, which will give you an experience of a kind, and make you look that young again? There you go, friends will always give you valuable leads; customer reviews from websites of some of these salons. As they say, ‘experience is the best teacher’- your friends or people who have been there will tell you better. Instagram is one of the resourceful platforms where you will be able to sample the many exposes available before you land on your favorite.
Choose carefully- legit only!
Before you submit yourself to a stylist, you will need to verify if they have the necessary licenses as required by law. The permit will always be displayed on the wall, and this will tell you if you are dealing with a legit service provider. Check through to ensure that the apparatus used is carefully sanitized and let them prove it, infections are real, and therefore this is critical and where you have doubts, run for your dear life.
Eyelash extension- a Relaxing moment
Remember this is the time to unplug and probably serve the subconscious a retreat. On your first visit to the salon for an eyelash extension, you should be prepared to take longer than expected, sometimes 3 hours or more. Therefore, you can carry with you a podcast or a playlist where you will have the time to rewind.
Talk about your preference with the stylist
Discuss with your expert the expectations you have, whether you need that subtle look or you would want to unleash the charming girl in you, they should know. The stylist should present to you the perfect options you have for your shape and of course, how you would want to appear. The eyelash extensions come in different types; mink, synthetic, and silk. Synthetic is a preference for many for they look glossier and dramatic. Mink and silk are also fantastic, but you must be familiar with them before, hence not really for newbies. For a beginning, you are good with the synthetic unless the stylist convincingly advises otherwise.
For the newbies, get conservative and grow
For the size and the diameter of the eyelashes for your extension, specialists recommend that novices should go conservative and with time, they can manifest their artistry. It always appears natural to wear an extension that is not so different from your natural lashes so that you can slowly adapt to the change.
Moderation is the name of the game here and therefore ensures that you do not rush to unleash the diva in you the first time, it could turn ugly and therefore get simple approach it wisely and grow with time. Keep the salon and the specialist for the longest for consistency, this is your consultant, and you will need them to take you through the process.
