Have you ever noticed that the eyelash curler we use every day looks like a medieval torture device? Putting that awkward metal thing so close to our eyes before coffee in the morning seems like a dangerous and outdated thing to do. Why do we do this to ourselves?
It’s time we opened up our eyes to the latest in eyelash technology. Eyelash extensions are a safe and simple way to add length, volume and life to your lashes. The single-fiber lash extension method is a 21st Century innovation, largely developed and perfected by NovaLash founder Sophy Merszei in 2004. Comprised of synthetic silk or genuine mink, each strand is shaped to match a natural eyelash.
The lashes are applied with a waterproof bonding agent, so regular exercise that causes sweating, for example hot yoga, will not affect the lashes. Most people will find that mascara use is not necessary, but if the desire for that extra luscious lash arises, just remember that oil and water do not mix! Waterproof or oil-based mascaras are strictly prohibited, as this will cause the bonding agent to dissolve and shorten the lifespan of the extensions. A water based remover is needed.
The process is completed while lying down on a spa bed, and after selecting your set, it takes a total of about 1.5-2 hours. Like the growth cycle of natural lashes, extensions start to shed after about 2-3 weeks, at this point a fill is recommended to maintain the sumptuous, full look. As with anything, eyelash extensions may not be for everyone and there are a few important things to know before you decide to go through with the process. If you have blepharitis (puffy eyelids), ocular rosacea (itchy eyes), tricotillomania (chronic eyelash pulling disorder), or if you are an avid swimmer (hit the pool over 5 times per week) eyelash extensions may not be the best choice for you.
