It’s hard not to notice beautiful mink lashes extensions on red carpet celebrities like Liz Hurley and Kim Kardashian. Exceptionally long lashes can either enhance their beauty or totally destroy the look. I remember one reporter commenting on how these eyelash extensions are getting more and more ridiculous. They get longer and look more fake with every year. I guess it’s one thing to strive for the fake look, but fake is not for everyone, certainly not for myself. Longer, natural-looking lashes are hot, but are they really worth it? Let’s take a look at our options.
Types of Eyelash Extensions
Lash extensions come in four different types: silk, synthetic, human hair and mink. Synthetic extensions are the most common type and the least expensive. The process of having them put on is a bit tedious. Your cosmetologist has to glue each extension to one of your natural beautiful mink lashes. It can take from two to three hours to complete.
What are the benefits of having semi permanent beautiful mink lashes? Well, they don’t weigh anything; you won’t feel them at all. You don’t have to bother wearing mascara. However, if you choose to wear mascara, there are certain types of mascara to avoid that could damage your extensions. Another benefit is that you can swim, shower and do all the normal things you can’t do with eyelash strips or “falsies” you find at the store. Lastly, if you pay the money and have them done right they look really hot. So, how much do you have to pay to have them done right?
Cost of Eyelash Extensions
Price ranges from $150 to $500 for the initial appointment. An individual lash extension could last anywhere from 4 – 6 weeks. It falls out with your natural beautiful mink lashes. Of coarse, the quality of glue used is an important factor. Lower quality glues can last only 2 weeks. I think biggest drawback is that you have to go back to the salon every 2 – 3 weeks to replace the lashes that have fallen out. That will set you back another $100 – $200 each time. All things considered, I have to ask, “is it really worth the time and money spent?”
