Lash Extensions…..a Personal Experience

March 28, 2013

I had heard about Last Extensions, but never seriously thought about having them applied.  That is, until a quick “flash” starting my gas fireplace, singed my hair and eyelashes.  Luckily, it was not much hair and not very noticeable once I removed all the burn curly ends, but my lashed we half gone on both eyes.  I considered myself lucky!

Putting mascara on little stubs of eyelashes did not look good at all.  That’s when I started to do some homework on Lash Extensions and talk with people that had them.  I decided on Liquifan Lashes.  I made an appointment at Lash Boutique in Brookfield.  The appointment took just under 2 hours.  I was a bit concerned about that amount of time, but it went reasonably fast and I almost fell asleep.  I paid $250. I expected to have one “fill” after the first full set as my eyelashes grew back.  Fills are about $50.

Well, that was five months ago.  I LOVE THEM!   I just can’t seem to give them up.

As owner of Premier Bride SE WI for 20 years, it was natural that I think about Brides.  No mascara to worry about if you cry at your wedding ceremony.  Just great looking lashes for all those pictures.

I also thought about the honeymoon.  I don’t know about you, but as long as I have mascara on and a little lipstick, I feel comfortable.  Now I’m comfortable right out of the shower.I had to ask myself if I would recommend lash extensions for brides.   If the thought doesn’t appeal to you, then I would say no.  If you are considering false eyelashes or are really worried about your makeup and crying, I would say Yes.  They have been a wonderful experience for me.

If you decide to have lash extensions applied, do your homework and go to a reputable and experienced provider.  Have our first application two -three weeks out and a fill a couple days before your wedding.  Then you can decide to just let them fall out naturally or have another fill once you return from your honeymoon.

Here are a few more details about Liquifan Lashes:

Liquifan Lash extensions are applied by a licensed and specially trained cosmetologist.  Each tapered, synthetic lash is bonded to a single natural lash and dries instantly.  This results in a longer lash that is difficult to detect even up close. They fall out as your natural eyelashes naturally do.
