We all know that professional eyelash extensions are a safe way to achieve beautiful, full lashes day after day but did you know there are different types of lash extensions available on the market today? Let’s break them down…
1. Silk Lashes. We’re putting them at the top of our list for a reason! Silk lashes produce amazing results because they hold a great curl and, with the help of a great lash artist, can create more dimension than Synthetic lashes. Silk lashes are also lightweight and comfortable to wear. They are finer than Synthetic lashes and result in a softer look. We HIGHLY recommend the Lash Affair by J. Paris line of Luxury Silk Lashes. These are the lashes we use at iLash Charlotte and the ones that keep our happy clients coming back for refill after refill!
2. Synthetic Lashes. Also referred to as Acrylic, Synthetic lashes are often made from polished acrylic materials that are usually very firm and heavy. Because of their composure, Synthetic lashes have a glossy finish with a shorter retention period than Silk or Mink lashes.
3. Mink Lashes. These very fine, soft and silky lash extensions are made from actual fur. Real Mink lashes can feel much like your natural lashes but require constant grooming as they flatten when wet and lose their curl (remember they are made of real fur). Also, mink lashes are more than double the price of silk lashes which can become quite the expense!
Now that you’ve done your lash homework, we hope that you will choose Silk eyelash extensions for their beauty, durability and luxury. As always, remember to set up a consultation with your lash artist to review your options. Find a certified Lash Affair artist in your area and get started today!
