Looking for luxe lashes, but not sure whether to go professional or DIY? While we love DIY projects (hello, Pinterest), lash extensions can be tricky and potentially harmful if applied without a professional’s touch. For safe, BEAUTIFUL, long-lasting lashes, choose professional lash extension services.

Before we get into why we love professional lashes oh so much, let’s learn more about DIY extensions, and why they’re not necessarily the best choice.

DIY Eyelash Extensions Pros and Cons

If you’re a pro when it comes to applying DIY lashes and like the lower price of this temporary lash option, then you may find them convenient. They can also offer a quick lash enhancement option in a pinch.

Unfortunately, for most, it’s unlikely that a home lash application will result in a finished look you’ll be proud of. It’s hard to get out-of-the-box extensions to align perfectly with your natural lash line, and then the results will only last for a couple of days, at most. If applied incorrectly, DIY lashes cause irritation and can lead to infection. (Using poor-quality adhesive or more glue than you need are the two most common causes).

DIY vs. Professional Eyelash Extensions

Lash extensions are safest when they’re made of high-quality materials AND applied by a professional stylist. That’s what makes professional lashes such good eyelash extensions—because they’re made from high-quality materials and are safely and professionally applied by a trained lash stylist.

DIY lashes might seem less expensive or even more convenient than professionally applied lashes because you can do them at home, but the results can be disappointing. While it’s possible to buy decent lashes and adhesives for home use, without proper training, or plenty of practice, the application will be difficult and frustrating. More problematic is the safety concern surrounding DIY lashes. These temporary lash enhancements are more likely to damage your natural lashes and, in some cases, cause irritation, breakage, and trauma to the lash follicle—yikes! 😱

Meanwhile, eyelash extensions from The Lash Lounge are customized by your stylist to fit your eye shape and lash goals and applied in a safe, hygienic salon environment. They also last much longer than DIY extensions! You only need a lash refill every two weeks to touch up any naturally grown or fallen-out extensions and keep your look on point.

While the initial application is an investment, our guests report spending less money in the long run on their overall routine AND spending less time in front of the mirror. Guests who choose professional extensions from The Lash Lounge are also more confident in their overall appearance and often go makeup-free. 🤩
