Eyelash extensions are single eyelashes which are bonded to your natural eyelashes individually. They do not contact the skin. Eyelash extensions come in a range of sizes, curls and colours and at Elegant Lashes we have hundreds of different combinations to create your set from. With proper after care your lash extensions can last from 2 to 4 weeks before infills are required. The process is very relaxing and many clients find they drift off into a light sleep.
If you want to be free of mascara, lengthy make up routines and would like to look younger, healthier and more beautiful then eyelash extensions will help you achieve that.
Furthermore, eyelash extensions are great for those with active, busy lifestyles. You can do many things in lash extensions, including swimming. And best of all, you can wake up in the morning and your eyes are already done!
Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent. Like the hair on your head, your lashes grow out and are replaced with new ones. As your natural eyelashes grow and fall out, the eyelash extension attached to it goes with it. Eventually your eyelash extensions will grow out.

Because the glue used to bond the eyelash extension to the natural lash is very strong you will need to get them removed professionally or allow them to grow out. The technician will use a specific solvent and removal process. This way, your natural lashes will remain undamaged.
If you try to pull the extension off yourself, you will pull your natural lash out and this may, much like continually plucking brows, halt regrowth. This is strongly not recommended. If you are unable to visit a technician, gently rubbing a safe oil based product on the lashes may help weaken the bond somewhat.
