Express, Party, Semi-Permanent – The Low Down on Lash Extensions


Lash extensions are big news at the moment! Who doesn’t want longer, thicker lashes?

But theres so many types? What’s the difference? Are they safe? And how do I know I’m getting the right thing?

Firstly theres three main types of eyelash extensions


These lashes last up to 12weeks with infills. A single lash extension is attached to your natural lash. As you are wearing these lashes for a long period of time you need to find a experienced lash technician to avoid damaging your natural lashes. Each natural lash has to be methodically isolated before the eyelash extension can be applied, the whole process usually takes a couple of hours. If a technician seems too cheap or says she can do them in 30mins etc be very wary as they are probably using an improper application method and could damage your lashes.

Best for long-term wear

Express Lashes

These are the same individual lash extensions as semi-permanent but are applied in a different way without isolating individual lashes. These are much quicker to apply but you must return to have them removed after 2weeks.

Best for holidays

Party/Weekend Lashes

These are cluster lashes (the ones used in the photo above) these are quick to apply. The glue used for these lashes is much gentler so the lashes can last up to two weeks or a couple of days depending on how you treat them. To maintain them don’t pull or rub them or use oily make-up remover. Like express lashes these should only be worn for 2 weeks

Best for special occasions

Whichever lash extensions you choose you should always have a patch test to test your not allergic to the glue before having a set applied.
