The beauty industry has seen all of the trends that came and went.
But no trend is as polarizing as Lash Extensions. Eye Lash extensions function
To amplify the length, curliness, fullness, and thickness of your natural eyelashes.
They goal is to give the eyes a made-up appearance without the use of mascara or any other
make-up product used to enhance lashes.

Now, the process is also very expensive, setting you back on hundreds of dollars. Why not get false lashes then? Well, there are considerable differences
between the two. False lashes are the strip lashes and can be bought at the drugstore or any other beauty supply store. Lash Extensions on the other hand, are when individual lashes are adhered to your lashes using a special glue. That glue causes the lash extensions slightly more durable and long lasting. Each extension can last up to 6 weeks. Whereas, strip lashes can only be used a couple of times before they lose their shape.

Extensions look more natural and can be worn during showering or sleep, unlike bogus lashes. However, a disproportionate amount of oil can weaken the adhesive bond. Extensions may be made from several materials. Those which include: Mink, synthetic and horse hair. Mink lashes are available, and are sustainably harvest from live minks in the United states. The minks are combed out, their hair sanitized and the individual hair are used. Mink sets may cost $500 to say the least. However, most technicians use nylon based hair, and not mink. Most people choose black lashes. However, purple, brown, red and green are also on deck.

Now we learned about lash extensions. Though, there is more
Than just that.

Eyebrow Extensions are also strands of mink or synthetic hair. Though, one can glue directly onto your brow hair and to the skin around the eyebrows. The process is done using surgical adhesive.

There are two types of the procedure. Micro blading and Nano blading. Either of them are not extensions. Although they give the brows that thick look.

Micro blading is believed to have originated in China in the early ought’s but has only recently gained popularity.
A delicate hand tool with tiny needles is used to insert pigments or natural origin into the surface layer of the skin. The pigment is used to darken your eyebrows and it slightly makes the eyebrows look thicker. It doesn’t stay in the skin forever. It starts fading after some time. Micro blading is semi-permanent and more often than not they last for about 1.5-2 years, though the endurance is not the same for everyone. For instance, people with oily skin will most probably notice their micro bladed eyebrows have started to fade away. While others still have great micro blading after 2 years.

Nano blading eyebrows basically means adding so called “strokes” into the brow arches, between the natural hair. They are made by depositing color in the form of PMU pigments into the surface layers of the skin. The strokes blend with natural hair and give a very subtle but effective enhancement. The results of nano blading are very realistic as the strokes made are extremely thin. Hence the difference lies in the thickness of the blade. While micro blades are usually 0.20+ mm thick, the thickness of the nano blade is around 0.15mm (some manufacturers make them a bit thinner , some make them a bit thicker) and it comes in a U or a slant pin formation. According to the majority of the artists, nano blading is just micro blading but with a very thin blade.
