Finding Time for Lashes

Many women want fuller, darker lashes to enhance their natural beauty. One of the most common concerns regarding lash extensions is how to find the time to fit them into an already busy schedule. Fortunately, improving the look of your natural lashes may take less time than you think. Plus, you’ll get the added benefit of saving time applying mascara and eyeliner every morning.

Take a look at our answers to some of the most common questions about lash extensions to help you decide if they could be right for you.

How Long Do Lash Extensions Take to Apply?

Because of the intricate process of applying 60 or more single lashes, your initial lash extension appointment should take anywhere from one to two hours. The beautiful, natural-looking results that can be achieved by a skilled lash artist in this amount of time is well worth treating yourself to an afternoon at the studio. If done too fast or using an improper technique, you could run the risk of ending up with an inferior finished result and damage to your natural lashes. That’s why it’s so important to work with a skilled professional when it comes to your lash extensions.

Why Lash Extensions?

For most women, finding the right mascara that doesn’t clump, easily rub off, and that actually works is like finding a needle in a haystack. Instead of battling messy eye makeup every morning, why not give lash extensions a try? Professional lash extensions have come a long way since the set of costume lashes you might have in mind. In fact, lashes provided by a professional studio like Deka Lash are applied individually to each of your own lashes for an incredibly natural feel and seamless look.

How Often Do Lashes Need to Be Touched-Up?

Eyelashes naturally grow, fall out, and are replaced through a three-phase cycle that can take anywhere from one to four months to complete (Livestrong). Because of this, your lash extensions will gradually shed along with your natural lashes, so you’ll need to maintain regular touch-up appointments to reapply lost lashes. The good news is that a lash fill appointment generally lasts less than an hour, and most people can go two to three weeks before they need to schedule a fill.

By taking great care of your lashes and avoiding excessive rubbing or using waterproof mascara and oil-based cleansers, you can help to prolong the life of your extensions.

The Bottom Line

When you take into account the amount of time that you would normally spend applying eye makeup in the morning, plus the time it takes you to remove it before bed each night, spending an hour at the studio for your lash extensions can end up saving you time in the long-run. Not to mention all of the tubes of mascara that you end up throwing away because they don’t work or have dried up before you could use it all.
