Should I get eyelash extensions for my wedding? Red Lotus skin and lash salon in Beaverton, Oregon helps you decide!
Eyelash extensions: Also known as semi-permanent eyelash extensions which are single, tapered strands of hair that are intricately applied to each of your individual lashes. The strands and glue never touch your skin but instead adhere to your natural lash with a semi-permanent glue. This gives your existing lashes the appearance of being thicker and longer. Extensions are adhered one-by-one by a trained professional at beauty/lash bar locations.You and your professional can choose the length, thickness, color and design that best fit your style. They are considered semi-permanent because unlike strip lashes where you remove the entire strip after an event, these fall out with your natural hair growth. The key with eyelash extensions is application and maintenance. Application by a trained and experienced professional is the best and safest option; otherwise there is an increased risk of damage to your lashes—or worse yet—your eyes. After the initial full set application, you return to the professional for refills approximately every three weeks to maintain their natural, full appearance.
· Wake up with gorgeous lashes; no mascara needed
· Natural appearance and enhancement to existing lashes
· Lasts indefinitely with frequent refills
· Custom looks created by a professional
· Monthly cost and time commitment
· Requires professional application and removal
· Glues can be harsh with fumes; allergic reactions, although uncommon, can occur
· Extensions can only be applied to existing lashes (won’t mask bald/uneven areas)
Eyelash extensions are especially perfect for your everyday look. Once applied, they are hassle free with a “wake-up and go” morning. They look natural in person and give that extra enhancement in photos. So if you commit to maintaining them and choose your professional carefully, they are a stunning addition to your wedding day look! Plus, you’ll have these beautiful lashes for all the wedding events leading up to your big day too: bridal shower, bachelorette party, bridal shoot, rehearsal dinner, as well as post-wedding on your honeymoon! Although it’s an investment, it’s a gorgeous one.
But, if you’re not wanting to invest in the maintenance and only want lashes for your wedding day, then strip lashes are a great alternative! Falsies create an incredible yet subtle depth and dimension to your eyes that is unmatched.
To Lash or Not to Lash? For your big day, most definitely do lashes. You won’t regret it, especially when you see your wedding photos!
