Eyelash extensions are an exciting way to enhance the look of your natural lashes, making them appear fuller and longer. With the popularity of eyelash extensions growing, there are several new types and styles popping up. Read our following guide to learn about some of the most popular types of eyelash extensions Seasons Salon and Day Spa can provide and determine which one is right for you.
While all eyelash extensions will help enhance your natural beauty, each type has specific characteristics that will create a different look. The biggest difference between the materials used to make eyelash extensions is their firmness. Synthetic or faux materials produce a firmer product, while natural materials produce a softer, more flexible product. It is important to consider the differences between each material before making your final selection. The following are some of our most popular types of eyelash extensions:
- Synthetic: This type of eyelash is typically made out of synthetic silk and is the firmest and heaviest type of material. Synthetic lashes create a thick glamorous look that is perfect for special occasions or photo-shoots.
- Mink: This type of eyelash is used to create a soft, natural look. Real mink lashes come from the mink tail and are very light and soft. They also have a natural shine and fluffy appearance. Real mink lashes are very expensive and can run $300 to $500 a set. Faux mink lashes are more affordable and have characteristics similar to real mink but won’t lose their curl when wet, which a significant advantage.
- Premium silk: This type of eyelash is very similar to human hair and produces a natural look at a more affordable price. Premium silk lashes are recommended for individuals with thin eyelashes because they are thinner and lighter than faux mink.
- Human Hair: This type of eyelash is designed for individuals that want a completely natural look. Human hair eyelashes are the lightest, thinnest, and most flexible type of eyelash extension. Real human hair lashes look and feel the most natural because they are real.
