Are Eyelash Extensions Worth It?

If you’re looking for a bold, defined lash line with or without applying eye makeup, then eyelash extensions are ABSOLUTELY worth it.

#LashGoals every day are possible when you get a custom set of eyelash extensions from The Lash Lounge. Our expert stylists will provide eyelash extension service that is safe and relaxing and offers results that not only highlight your eyes, but define your facial features!

Why Eyelash Extensions?

Semi-permanent eyelash extensions are the most dramatic way to enhance the look of your lashes. Unlike a lash lift or lash tint, eyelash extensions provide length and fullness to your natural lash line with the application of premium synthetic lashes made exclusively for The Lash Lounge. Taking away the need for mascara, eyelash extensions provide an instant refresh to your look while often eliminating the need to wear makeup altogether.

We Believe in Eyelash Extensions for Three Simple Reasons

  1. They Provide a Relaxing Application With Instant Results

The lash extension application process is incredibly relaxing and when performed by highly trained lash technicians like we have here at The Lash Lounge, it’s 💯% pain-free. After sinking down in one of our comfy spa beds, you will be in awe when your appointment flies by, leaving you with an instant lash look all your own!

  1. Your New Lashes Can Be Enjoyed With or Without Makeup

Life is busy and lash extensions are designed to streamline your beauty routine to help you get out the door faster! In fact, they give you a #WokeUpLikeThis look every time you roll out of bed.

A makeup-free look also includes the ability to toss out your mascara and say goodbye to those pesky mascara smudges or unsightly smears. However, if you still love a sweep of mascara, we have great news! Eyelash extensions can absolutely be worn with mascara as long as it’s lash extension-friendly, like the makeup products we carry here at The Lash Lounge! Just be sure to carefully remove mascara and makeup each evening by using gentle, lash-friendly products. And don’t forget to check out our NEW product line, including our lengthening + volumizing mascara specifically for eyelash extensions. You (and your lashes) can find these new goodies and more at your local salon!

  1. They Are Completely Customizable

Unlike false lash strips or extensions from other salons or stylists, eyelash extensions from The Lash Lounge are completely customized to fit you, your eye shape, preferences and even your lifestyle! In fact, we use four different parameters to customize your lash application:

  • Lash curl
  • Lash type
  • Application method
  • Lash level

During your appointment, your stylist will help you select the options best suited for you, your natural lashes and of course, your dream lash style.

Eyelash Extension Pros and Cons

The pros of eyelash extensions are endless and a few of our favorites include: enjoying a long-lasting lash look, less money spent on purchasing makeup and false lash strips, time-saving beauty and (our favorite) a custom look you will LOVE! We could go on and on! But suffice it to say, as an extension of your personal style, your custom lashes will HELP YOU TO LOOK AND FEEL YOUR BEST! 😍

The cons? We’re about to get real with you! Be prepared to receive an influx of texts and DMs after your friends notice something “different” about you. Sure, the replies you’ll have to make and the lash deets you’ll be sharing may become time consuming, but you’ll feel on top of the world knowing your new look IS the talk of the town!

While some may or may not consider this a con (but more of an investment in your new, beloved lash extensions), you will have to be more aware of the products you use on and around your lash line. From cosmetics to cleansers, the beauty products you used before you had lash extensions may have to go if they do not meet the lash extension-friendly requirements. If this is the case, The Lash Lounge can help you select all the lash care products you need and even assess any products you’re not sure about. Just bring them along to your next appointment so your stylist can take a look.

Lastly, since eyelash extensions aren’t permanent, you will have to schedule a refill appointment every two weeks. Yet again, this is not truly a con because these appointments help you keep your lash line full and give you the opportunity to change or upgrade your lash look if your heart desires.

Eyelash Extensions Before-And-After

Before lash extensions, our guests report that they:

  • Spent too much time getting ready—for a look that would wear off throughout the day
  • Felt frustrated with the outcome and money spent on brand-name mascaras and false lash strips
  • Were unhappy with thin, short, or light-colored natural eyelashes

After receiving their personalized lash extensions, our guests shared that their new lashes became quite the time-saver and allowed them to feel as confident as ever. See for yourself by taking a look at these before-and-after photos from real Lash Lounge guests!
