The Beauty of Eyelash Extensions

If you’ve never tried eyelash extensions, then you probably don’t know how quickly they can transform your look! Whether you have naturally thin or naturally thick lashes, eyelash extensions have the ability to soften your appearance and widen your eyes. They can also be dressed up or dressed down, depending on your mood. Choosing the correct eyelash extensions in Chicago can be difficult without a little guidance, but luckily our talented technician, Llena, is here to help. Take a look at our Q&A with her to learn why Sorelle is one of the most popular Chicago salons for lash extensions!

Q: What are the benefits of eyelash extensions?

A: The most common reason that lash extensions are so popular is because they require very little maintenance while making you look beautiful! You can choose to have a dramatic look or a natural, more feathery look, but either way you’ll see a noticeable difference in your appearance. Once applied, simply avoid allowing your lashes to come in contact with water for 24 hours. Your extensions will then fall off with your natural lashes as they shed (which is typically every three to four weeks), at which point you can come in and have them filled!

Q: Are there different types of eyelash extensions?

A: There are three common types of lash extensions: synthetic, silk and mink. Many people are surprised that eyelashes can be made from mink fur, but they are actually the lightest type of extension and lash extensions chicagolook the most natural. (Psst… Beyonce wears mink lashes!) No matter what type of eyelash extension you choose, you won’t be disappointed with the result.

If you do choose mink lashes, make sure you are getting natural mink hair! Some places advertise mink lashes at a very cheap price, but those who do so always are using synthetic mink.

Q: How are eyelash extensions applied?

A: Believe it or not, most people fall asleep when they have their lash extensions applied! It normally takes around two hours, but you’ll be able to lay back and relax while they’re applied. We’ll have you close your eyes, and then, one by one, glue your new lashes to your individual natural lashes. That’s it! The next time you open your eyes, you’ll have perfect eyelashes.

Q: Will eyelash extensions harm my natural lashes?

A: No way! If they are applied correctly, there is no reason for eyelash extensions to damage your natural lashes. If you do, however, pull on your extensions, there is a chance that you could pull out your natural lashes along with them, so treat the area with care!chicago lash extensions

Q: Can you wear mascara with eyelash extensions?

A: Yes, but only if you apply it very lightly to the ends of the extensions, and be sure to avoid waterproof mascara. Waterproof mascara will add weight to the end of your lashes and prove to be much more difficult to remove, increasing the chances that you accidentally pull out your lashes.
