If you’re into the idea of waking up every morning with long, dark, full lashes every single day, you should definitely look into the eyelash extension game. But before you book your appointment, you need to know about all the aspects of having jaw dropping lashes. So keep reading for all the deets you seriously don’t want to miss out on before booking with Executive Spa and Massage in Joplin, Missouri.

What are eyelash extensions?

Eyelash extensions are fake individual lashes that are hand-glued on top of your natural lashes, because lash extensions are glued on individually, unlike strip lashes, they’re super customizable and actually look real.

How long do eyelash extensions last?

If you actually take care of them, eyelash extensions can last for six to eight weeks until they naturally fall out like your lashes usually do. Once they start falling out, though, you can go back and have your lash specialist fill in the missing pieces. So, technically, you can make your extensions last indefinitely.

Do eyelash extensions ruin your natural lashes?

Not really—there isn’t a ton of evidence that shows whether eyelash extensions actually affect your natural lash length or health long-term. It usually takes years of bad application and improper care for long-term lash damage to happen as a result. So please, only go to legit, well-reviewed salons, like Executive Spa and Massage, where we always make sure our technicians wash their hands between clients, wear a mask, use sanitary pillow covers, sterilize their tweezers, and use disposable eyelash brushes. And, don’t feel awkward asking our technicians to confirm that all of these precautions are being taken for your safety.

Can I wear makeup to my eyelash extension appointment?

No. You’ll want to show up to your appointment with clean skin and no eye makeup. That means absolutely no eyeshadow, eyeliner, and/or mascara. Anything on your lids or lashes could affect how your extensions turn out, so definitely make sure to wash your face beforehand.
