3 Common Misconceptions About Eyelash Extensions, Southwest Arapahoe, Colorado

The eyes have been called the windows to the soul—and your eyelashes help draw attention to them. For women who don’t have the genetics for thick, long lashes, they often turn to makeup, such as mascara, to add volume. However, this can be a time-consuming part of your busy morning routine. That’s why you should consider eyelash extensions. Contrary to some of the myths below, they are a convenient way to obtain natural-looking full lashes without taking up too much of your day.

What Are Some False Rumors Surrounding Eyelash Extensions?

1. They Ruin Your Natural Lashes

This myth comes from inexperienced stylists who use the wrong amount of lash glue or add extensions that are too heavy for the natural lashes to handle. If you have them put on by a properly trained and licensed professional, you can trust that your natural lashes will remain healthy. It can actually cause less damage than curling your lashes if you have a tendency to break them off.

2. They Inhibit Daily Life

However, after it has set, you can continue with your normal everyday routine. Shower, swim, and exercise as you normally would—your lashes won’t be affected.

3. They Look Fake

Some people like to wear lashes that are so long and thick, it’s obvious they’re not natural. However, extensions come in all sizes and styles—including ones that match your natural lashes only with a little extra “oomph.” Choose ones that suit the look you’re going for.
