There are many ways that you can enhance the appearance of your eyes. Many women choose the route of using eyeliner, mascara, and bold eyeshadow to give their eyes a more sultry look. There are even more women who spend hours each day in front of the mirror applying layers of foundation or false eyelashes in order to get the volume and length that they desire.

If you decide that you are ready to set aside your falsies in exchange for lash extensions, contact Cherry Lash to schedule an appointment.

Cost

Let’s be honest: cost plays a large role in most decisions, and getting eyelash extensions is no different. One of the main differences between falsies and lash extensions is the price. You can walk into any beauty store (and even some grocery stores) and find a rack full of false eyelashes for as little as $5. The cheaper price is enough to convince you that falsies are the way to go, but you also have to think about the long-term cost. Falsies are great, but they typically can only be worn once before you have to throw them away. For higher-end false lashes you may end up paying a higher price, but you will get to wear them more than once.

Eyelash Extensions, on the other hand, are more costly up front. Depending on the lash salon that you go to, the price of lash extensions may vary according to the type of lashes you get and the experience level of your lash artist. That being said, what you pay for in price directly translates to the quality of materials that are being used and the expertise of your artist. You should also keep in mind that lash extensions last three to four weeks before you need to have them filled in again.

Application

Another difference between falsies and lash extensions is the way that they are applied. You can apply false lashes right at home – all you need is the lash glue. Sometimes applying your own lashes can be difficult and it may take a few tries to get it right. Not to mention, all falsies are made to be one-size-fits-all, meaning that they may not fit perfectly on your eye.

Lash extensions are applied by a professional. These experts go through intense training where they learn the best techniques to give you amazing lashes. While false lashes are applied along your lash line in one long line, lash extensions are applied to your individual lashes. This process takes time and patience, but the result is worth the wait!

Weight and Appearance

As we mentioned earlier, the difference in price between falsies and eyelash extensions reflects the quality of materials that are used. Falsies are cheaper in cost, therefore they are manufactured with lower-quality materials. These materials often end up feeling heavier than lash extensions, and because they are placed directly on your eyelid, false lashes can often feel uncomfortable or inhibit the natural movement of your eye. Additionally, it is usually easy to tell if you are wearing falsies because the low-quality materials don’t look as natural.

When you pay the higher price for lash extensions, you get high-quality materials. Typically, the extensions are made from soft lashes that are lighter in weight. The lightweight material used for lash extensions make them more comfortable — in fact, many people don’t even notice them! Additionally, the high-quality materials give your lash extensions give your lashes a more natural appearance.
