What is the difference between the types of eyelash extensions? One of the most common questions we get asked here at LashDesign, Melbourne. For majority of our loyal clients they would surely know what the difference is and what they prefer. But for those of you that don’t know or that are new to the eyelash scene here you go.
Acrylic Eyelash Extensions – The original, firmest and most dramatic. Think Kim Kardashian. A coarser lash made out of acrylic that will give you a bolder look. The toughness of the acrylic really extenuates the black pigment. Acrylic lashes were the original type of lash and very popular until the silk came along. While they come in a wide variety of thicknesses and curls, and can be applied to look very natural, these are most popular with ladies wanting a more dramatic look. They hold their curl extremely well due to their firmness.
Silk Eyelash Extensions – The one that introduced softness. They are soft to the touch and are by far the most popular among the more natural woman. Think Chyka Keebaugh from the Real Housewives of Melbourne who is one of LashDesigns VIP clients and absolutely loves the silk lashes. They can be made to look very natural or very glamorous depending on the amount of lashes applied per eye. Because they are lighter weight, they are often a much better option for your lashes if your own ones are weak or fine.
Mink Eyelash Extensions They are the most natural looking lash you can get. A real natural fibre from the mink’s tail. Most people love mink lashes because they are not as heavy and people can’t tell you have eyelash extensions on. Which most ladies with eyelash extensions are having them applied to enhance their natural lashes. They are so light and fine, they feel exactly like your own lashes with a very subtle curl. An alternative option to the mink lashes would be the Russian 3D Volume lashes as they are a lighter weight lash.
LashDesign Melbourne prefers the eyelash fibers that are manmade rather than coming from a living creature.
