Over the past few years I have been seeing them more and more. Eyelash extensions, what an amazing idea. They are the new makeup trend, and are becoming the next big thing all over the world. All the hollywood celeb’s are getting them done, they have become extremely popular in the Asia, Europe, US, and Eastern Canada. So why has it taken so long for it to become popular in Vancouver? Why is it that we are always the last ones to catch on?
As soon as I heard of them, I was intrigued, so I researched them and was so impressed with what I saw. I wanted to spread the word about this revolutionary trend. No more running mascara through out the day? No more wedding pictures with noticeable line from the fake strip lashes? Woman can be free to go swimming in a pool or at the beach, without their eye makeup running down their face? We can be free at last! I thought I want the woman in Vancouver to be able to enjoy this too. I want them to have the same quality as they get in Europe, I want the woman in my city to feel as beautiful as the rest of the world. So I looked up which eyelash extensions seemed to be the best quality. I found a company that was based out of Quebec, and they had one teacher here in Vancouver. ”Perfect!” I thought, and they were.
After my first client I was really nervous to hear what she would say after she got them done. Her first words were, “Wow I can’t even feel them!” and then followed by ” I love them so much, thank you.” I knew right then and there that I had made a great decision.

Depending how well you take care of them, professionally applied eyelash extensions can last up to a month or even longer . Use of oily makeup removers shorten the life of your new lashes. It is also not recommended to get them wet for the first 12 hours after having them applied, and it is also recommended to avoid saunas and steam rooms for 48 hours after application.
Do eyelash extensions make my own lashes fall out?
No. Your own eyelases naturally fall out and grow as any other hair follicle does. As we age, the re-growth phase of the cycle lessens naturally due to several factors– stress, nutrition, and lifestyle. It may be more noticeable when they eventually do fall out because the lashes are so much thicker and longer with the extensions. Some people get so used to seeing themselves with their new luxurious lashes that when they do come off, you forget what a huge difference they make from the “unaccentuated” lash.
How do I remove eyelash extensions?
There is a special remover designed to take off your extensions without harming your natural lash. Please don’t try and take them off your self. This can be quite painful and must be done professionally.
