Eyelash extensions add thickness, fullness and length to your natural eyelashes. Extensions draw attention to your eyes. A single polyester fiber, either Lavish or Xtreme, or a natural mink hair is attached to an individual eyelash. On average, 30-80 lashes are adhered per eye. Depending on where in the life cycle of the individual eyelash, it can last from three weeks to three months. The results are natural looking as it opens up the look of the eye.
