The bad news? Expect the treatment to last one to two hours, depending on the desired look. The good news? You can use it as an excuse to lie back, relax, and take a forced break from your phone. Asako (left) and Naoko (right) are certified eyelash stylists and the owners of Divine Lashes, a site for eyelash lovers to meet and learn more about eyelash extensions and lifts. Both Feroz and famous makeup artist Katie Jane Hughes say you don't even need mascara or eyeliner when you're wearing eyelash extensions; extensions offer an effect similar to typical eye enhancement makeup.
The cost of eyelash extensions can vary widely depending on your location, your eyelash technician, the type of eyelashes being used, and the style you want. For example, if I apply 80 extensions per eye for a full series and the customer returns in 3 weeks to refill them, there will still be at least 40 extensions per eye. The stylist will also need to spend more time on your eyelashes if they are relatively new to the field of eyelash extensions. Because eyelashes are at different stages in their growth cycle at any given time, the extensions won't fall out all at once and you may find holes starting to appear a few weeks after you've placed them.
Beginners will need more time to complete the same tasks, as they are still getting used to the skills needed to apply eyelash extensions.
