If you’ve ever thought about lash extensions and looked into it, you have come across all kinds pricing. Listen doll, I’m all for a good deal but some things are worth paying for and lash extensions are one of them. The cost of the lash extension is a sure fire way to tell if you are getting the good stuff or not. In the interest of saving a few bucks many ladies have chosen to get their lashes done at the local nail shop. Here’s the truth . . . these are not extensions at all. Usually they are clusters of lashes or sometimes even strip lashes cut into pieces. These are applied with a type of crazy glue or sometimes even NAIL GLUE ! Yup, that’s right . . . . the same product that’s used to glue nails tips is bring used on your skin and eyelash hair. I have been into so many nail shops claiming to do lash extensions by asking to see their certification. Of course they claim to have one but “it’s at home”, no problem “can I see the lashes you would be using on me ?” they present me with clusters everytime . . . BUSTED !. No Xtreme Lashes certified lash stylist will ever use a cluster, it’s against our ethics to damage the hair and clusters do just that. Once I asked to see the glue they would be using and was presented with a tube of CRAZY GLUE . . . again BUSTED. I have been into every nail shop in my local area and not one of them is doing actual “eyelash extensions”.
How can you tell if the person is certified ? An easy way is price . . . if a full set starts at $150 then you usually dealing with someone that is certified. Another resource to check if the person doing the application has taken the time to learn the process is to check the Xtreme Lashes websitewww.xtremelashes.ca.
