What Are Eyelash Extensions & How They Work 

You would like to get eyelash extensions but you don’t know where to start? No worries. In this comprehensive guide for beginners, I’m going to share everything that you need to know about lash extensions.

After lashing clients for more than a decade now, I wanted to put together an “Eyelash Extension 101 Guide” that would help anyone who is considering getting them for the first time.

Eyelash Extension After reading this, you won’t need to read any other article about lash extensions on the internet 😉

So, let’s dive in and get started!

What Are Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash extensions are synthetic or natural fibers that are attached to your natural eyelashes one by one with a medical-grade adhesive to give the appearance of longer, fuller and thicker eyelashes. The extensions come in different lengths, thicknesses, and curls, which can be customized to create a variety of looks.

There are 4 types of fake eyelashes available on the market today. Therefore, it’s important to have a clear understanding of what they are before I continue.

  • Individual lash extensions: Individual eyelash extensions are commonly referred to as “Eyelash Extensions” or “Lash Extensions”. They are single strands of synthetic or natural hair that are applied to one eyelash at a time.
  • Strip lashes: Strip lashes are pre-made bands of lashes that are applied to the eyelids as one piece. They are often referred to as “False Lashes”.
  • Cluster lashes: Cluster lashes are made of multiple individual lash fibers, which are grouped together in small clumps and applied to the eyelids. They are sometimes called “Flares”.
  • Magnetic lashes: Magnetic lashes are made of multiple magnets that attach to each other and to the natural lashes, creating a continuous line of lashes.

How Do Eyelash Extensions Work?

The application process for eyelash extensions is really quite simple. Here is how they are done:

  1. Isolate one natural eyelash at a time: The technician will use tweezers to separate the individual eyelashes, in order to ensure that each extension is applied to a single natural lash.
  2. Pick one extension from the lash tray: The technician will then pick one extension from the tray and dip it into the adhesive.
  3. Attach the extension: Using tweezers, the technician will attach the extension to the natural lash. It’s important to note that the extension never touches the skin.
  4. Repeat the process: The technician will repeat this process until they have applied every single extension to each natural lash.

Now, I know what you’re thinking: “This sounds easy. I can do this myself at home.” And while that may be true, it’s important to remember that a lot more goes into the process than meets the eye.
