MYTH 1: EYELASH EXTENSIONS HURT
Take it from someone who has gotten them done several times: Nothing about the process hurts (Unless the tech has no idea what there doing!) It’s not a matter of tolerance levels; there simply is no pain involved in the eyelash extension process. If you are worried about someone using tweezers close to your eyes, you might feel anxiety, but pain is not part of the deal.
MYTH 2: YOUR EYELASHES WILL NEVER GROW BACK
Your eyelashes will, in fact, grow back. Because of the lash shedding cycle, new natural eyelashes are always growing in, hence why you get "fills.” If new eyelashes weren’t always growing back, there would be nothing to fill. In other words? If eyelash extensions really made your eyelashes cease growing, refills wouldn’t even be possible, because there has to be a natural lash for the extension to adhere to.
MYTH 3: YOU MUST TAKE BREAKS
Many people think that you have to take breaks from getting extensions in order to let your natural lashes “breathe.” The idea that it’s not good to get repeated extensions because your eyelashes need breathing room is mere myth. Your eyelashes do not know that extensions are being applied to them, and they continue to shed off like normal, and a new natural lash will grow back. However it is completely up to the client whether or not they wish to take a break.
MYTH 4: THEY TAKE FOREVER TO BE APPLIED
False! It can take forever if the technician you’re seeing is just starting out applying eyelash extensions or is inexperienced and untrained. However professionals who fully specialize in eyelash extensions can perform a full set in just an hour.
