Big Brother is watching you.
I hope this time with social distancing doesn’t hurt your business! Small businesses are important! Just because I don’t personally pay for extensions, nails, facials, etc. does not mean I am not worried about those that perform these services for a living.

Something crazy happened here... Sorry, it's a secret.
I am sorry you went through that! I went through something similar with the wrong mascaras, but for sure not painful like your experience sounds! I do think we should always be cautious! I have so many allergies and eczema that many services sometimes aren’t worth the worry for me. (I even use the tiny facial hair trimmers instead of wax and bleach— boy were those welts painful! Well that’s just basic things, not mentioning the other fun that is not cosmetic! 😞) I have been nervous to try magnetic... I am a science geek and terrible with lash glue.. last halloween when I bought lashes the employee helping me said magnetic lashes were odd to her, so I just couldn’t buy in front of her. Yes, non-confrontational, infj me! Wanted to please the clerk that hadn’t tried a product!)

The fact that yours eyes become not just red but also swollen mean that you had an allergic reaction on a glue. Unfortunately some people have that reaction and a negative patch test doesn't guarantee yet that a client won't develop delayed reaction after the have full set of lashes. Therefore on your first consultation you supposed to be told that an eyelash extensions treatment is "the potential risk treatment"

Never pull your lashes off at the very least you could hàve contacted the lash tech and sent a picture. She could then advise, invite you in for a removal. If this happens take an antihistamine and wait 12 hours if no improvement get them removed and seek medical advice. Any discharge seek medical advice no lash tech should attempt to remove lashes if infection present.

I’ve never had lash extensions, but based on the very offended lash techs, this may include rare side effects. On the topic of lashes though, we should be choosy about not only mascara but anything we put on our skin and hair. Why do we care more about what we eat/drink and less about our skin? My lashes are probably still more sensitive than most, so I already have to be extra cautious. I lost lashes with a few normal mascara brands. Had to wear small clusters to fill in the gaps left for a long time. Finally started to use a fairly inexpensive organic one with minimal ingredients. My lashes don’t clump or smear, I think we are harder on makeup removal when our lashes are clumpier and have a lot of product. But good luck to those not currently deemed “essential!” ☺️ I am sure when we return to normal appointments and such there will be a decent amount to help that youtube tutorials (or those that went rogue!) damaged. Be safe everyone and I hope your businesses last past this!!

I would try them, but I have very sensitive eyelids and I'm afraid that I would easily get infection :/

I will suggest trying just once, but if you know that you're going to get infected then it's a risk. They give a more dramatic look, and if you go to a specialist probably you would be OK :)

My clients wear lash extentions for years without taking brakes, we sometimes take off old set completely and have new one. I always give a mirror to my clients, so they can see conditions of natural lashes after I removed lash extentions. Unfortunately there are many lash technicians who make cheap job - too quick, bad isolation of natural lashes, using too much glue, not correct calculation of weight and length of artificial lashes, which makes lash set too heavi for natural lashes. All that can cause a problem and that be a reason of damaging natural lashes. If you choose your lash tech carefully, check her portfolio, and feedback from clients - surely you will find a good master and you will be safe in her hands.

Yes you are quite right but don't you find some clients just do want to take the lash techs advice especially when it come to length, weight and fullness of lashes. Many people are wearing clusters for more than 7days which is likely to result in issues.

People get infection not because of eyelash extensions itself, they get infection because of poor hygiene. Sometimes girls afraid to wash eyeleeds when they got eyelash extensions because they think their lashes fill last not long. Eyelash extensions MUST be washed with a soapy water or even better with a special foam for lashes. It is essential to follow aftercare tips, and a good Lash Artist always does good consultation before and after treatment.

Correct application the lashes and adhesive don't come into contact with the skin. If hygiene standards are maintained lashes do not become infected.

I tried fake lashes once and never again ! When they fell off , I had big empty spaces where my real lashes used to be ! It looked horrible ! My real lashes were gone ! They grew back eventually but that's besides the point .

I am experienced Eyelash Artist and unfortunately I had clients coming to me from others salon with a horrible eyelash sets for infill. The worse cases which are damaging lashes is too much glue, too heavy sets.

All you need to know is that eyelash extensions should feel light and soft, they should look natural. if you require dramatic volume set it have to be done using only super lightweight lashes which are much lighter then used for 2D&3D.

Eyelash extensions require a lot of training at home, it is treatment which takes long time, a lot of patience, and kind of perfectionist approach. therefore that treatment cannot be done quickly, and highly skilled eyelash technicians newer would have cheap prices. Moderate - yes.

I was my lash persons first client and I will always go to her!! She is always great, works me in time wise, fixes ones that I mess up rubbing my eyes and had patience with my shaking, watery eyes. I get compliments everywhere I go and they boost my self esteem beyond words!!!🤣 I'm always going to be loyal to her!!! I cannot wait for this virus stuff to be over , because I need my lashes back, more than I need my haircut!!!

There's no point in hiding the truth, but we'll try.
I have tried both, but went back to the strips because my real lashes fell out, and have had my eyes done to my liking only twice. Have to find a good one. I was told not to get my extentions wet. So I switched the way I removed my makeup. And you have to let them know if its too close to your tear duct, that makes them uncomfortable I usually catch that when I am in chair. You cant have them irritating your eye

New set of Lash extensions with bi-weekly fills cost around $200 a month. I've had my lashes done for the past 4 yrs by a wonderful license esthetician. For $70 a month. I get a new set of lashes every 2 weeks. I think it keeps my natural lashes healthy and saves me a lot of money.
