Magnifying mascaras, “miracle” growth serums, heated curlers—the beauty industry has seen it all. No fad is as divisive as eyelash extensions. When extensions initially became popular, they seemed like a painless method to have wispy, fluttery lashes without falsies or mascara. But, like any new beauty service, lash extensions have flaws. Due of inadequate cleanliness and technique, some states have not regulated the service. 1 The process costs hundreds of dollars and hours of your time.

Eyelash Extensions Types
Eyelash extensions come in three varieties: mink, silk, and synthetic. Some studios also sell “faux mink” extensions, which are synthetic extensions that look like mink.

A natural look is best achieved with mink or silk lashes, while thicker and darker synthetic lashes are better suited to individuals seeking a more dramatic look. There are many lengths and curls available in these three types (mink, silk, and synthetic).
