The process of applying eyelash extension is very long. It can last up to three hours. Just try to have your eyes shut for that long. Or for that matter, try not touching your phone for that time. Some of the girls that choose to go with the procedure are deciding to have some kind of a Zen moment for those three hours. 

They Are Costly 

The procedure is not a cheap one. The range of prices can be from $250 to $450. The price depends on a technician, glue, and the lash material. Also, it is important to maintain them once in some period of time. We will talk about that further in the article.

Probably the most important category in negative sides segment is maintenance. You need to know some things about it before you undergo the procedure. 

  • Removing them on your own is not an option. If you do that, there is a high risk of you damaging your natural eyelashes. For this, you should go to the technician.  
  • You should constantly re-arrange and brush them with a mini brush, and use other products that used for repairing and maintaining them. 
  • Going to your technician for maintaining every two or three weeks is a must. 
  • When it comes to the makeup remover products, you should be careful when you are choosing them. Naturally, you should use only ones that are compatible with eyelash extensions. Other product could loosen the glue, and that can be a problem for you.
