Why have eyelash extensions become so popular?

Eyelash extensions have been around for over a decade now. And in that time they’ve come a long way, going from classic single eyelash extensions in the beginning to volume fans and even handmade fans.

In the beginning, only a small portion of women wore eyelash extensions, and over time through popularity and seeing them more and more, a higher percentage of women have started to regularly wear eyelash extensions. Now it’s very common to see over half the women when you go out wearing eyelash extensions of some length.

The reason they’ve become so popular is because of the way they make your eye stand out without the need to wear any makeup at all. Eyelash extensions allow you to save time in the morning doing your make-up routine and still have an incredibly beautiful fresh look all day every day, lasting from 3 to 4 weeks.

Also over the years, there have become many more qualified Gold Coast eyelash extensions specialists and salons that offer eyelash extensions so getting the service completed professionally at a place near you has become much easier. At the beginning finding eyelash extensions was difficult and time-consuming and the application practices weren’t nearly as good. Now due to enhancements in glues, tools, the extensions themselves, and the lash technicians applying the lashes having far more skill and experience the whole process has become so much easier and quicker, with a far better final result.

Another reason eyelash extensions have become more popular is because of the advancements in glue types. Lash glue has become better at releasing fewer fumes which means less irritation around the sensitive eye area and for people with sensitivities to lash glue they are also cyano-acrylate-free adhesives that allowed people who previously had allergies to still wear eyelash extensions without any irritation.

If you’re interested in getting a new set of lash extensions but have never tried them before then here’s a few tips.

Aim to find a salon in your area that specialises in eyelash extensions or a home-based business who specialises only in eyelash extensions. It’s far worse to go to a salon that specialises in dozens of different treatments because the technician applying your lashes probably won’t have much experience in extensions and this is where problems can occur. Becoming a master lash artist takes hundreds and even thousands of hours of practice so that’s why you really need to search for a specialist with a lot of experience. 

Try to stay away from the cheapest salons because they will be cutting costs in areas like lash extension quality, glue quality and humidity and temperature controls which will affect the longevity of your lashes.

Instead if you can afford it go to the more premium salons because they will be using the highest quality lashes glues and equipment to ensure the best quality result that will also last longer than the cheaper salons which in fact makes them a better value and experience.
