I am talking about three different types of eyelash extensions. What? There are more than one?
01. Silk eyelash extensions have some pros and cons. One of the great things about them, is that they’re one of the cheaper options on the lash extension market. They’re also thicker than some other options, so they’re noticeable, which is what clients are paying for! However, these should only be used on clients with super strong natural lashes, because thick = heavy. And we already know that too-heavy extensions can damage a client’s natural lashes. No breakage here!
02. Mink eyelash extensions come from, well, a mink. It is said that their tiny hairs are collected by brushing them, but if you’re going for a vegan or cruelty-free vibe, we suggest you stay away from real mink eyelash extensions.
03. Faux mink eyelash extensions are the way to go, we think. They’re comparable in cost to silk extensions, but they’re made of polyester, which is a lot more versatile than silk. Faux mink extensions are highly customisable and you won’t have any issue with weight. Not only that, but there’s no mink involved, so they are entirely cruelty-free and vegan. So, they’re made specifically to be gentle on natural lashes, and they have the look of mink extensions without the price tag?
