Atlanta Eyelash Exte
With eyelash extensions becoming very popular among the everyday woman there is quite a bit of mis-understood information and terminoloy in the market place. Please read below to fully understand eyelash extensions.
Please do not be confused with understanding the difference between the lash extension service and the brand. There are many "GREAT" brands on the market such as Xtreme Lash, Novalash, 3D Lash etc... These are all top brand manufacturers of eyelash extensions, not to be confused with the actual service itself, which is Semi-Permanent Eyelash Extensions. Choose a lash stylist based on their experience, referrals, and most importantly knowledge and not necessarily based on the brand. After all, these are your eyes and it should take skill, experience and expertise to give you Premium Professional service.
Don't necessarily choose a brand over experience. Remember "Practice makes Perfect." At the end of the day, numbers don't lie. How many clients are your lash stylist(s) really servicing one, two or twenty-two? As they always say, "Experience is the best teacher.
Beauty legend has it that American movie director D.W. Griffith designed the first set of false eyelashes, while creating a motion picture in 1916. He wanted his leading lady Phyllis Haver to have eyelashes so long that they graced her cheeks when she blinked or looked down.
A wig maker set to work creating the eyelashes out of human hair and gauze, and the result was movie magic. Unfortunately the film was not, and the screenplay became unforgettable. However, false eyelashes were remembered to the misfortune of Griffith who never formally made a claim to their fame and had his idea simulated, stolen, and altered in the decades to come.
Since 1916 there have been many of leading ladies and celebrities who used false eyelashes. Twiggy is an example of someone in the spotlight who used falsies in the way that they were intended. Eyelashes has always been a statement for the "The Art Of A Lady". They have been used on cartoon characters such as Betty Boop, Judy Jetson, Miss Piggy and Olive Oil (Of Popeye). TV characters such as Lucy(I Love Lucy), Samantha(Bewitched), Genie( I Dream of Genie), and Ginger from Gilligans Island are just a few who have been glamorized by wearing eyelash extensions. Today eyelash extensions are the fastest growing beauty trend in the world. Find out what all of the hype is surrounded by this must have beauty servic
Eyelash Extensions are synthetic lashes that are attached to an individuals natural lashes using a special adhesive. The lashes come in different lengths, curls and thickness’ which makes it possible to customize the application. Manufactured by hand or by machine, most eyelash extensions are made from polyester to imitate human lashes and other materials such as mink and silk. Real mink fur as well as human hair are also used.
Created in Asia in the late 1990’s, this beauty trend has made its mark around the world. Eyelash extensions were once a beauty secret to Hollywood but is now becoming a welcomed addition to the everyday woman's beauty regiment. The popularity of extensions continue to grow as it is the most innovative way to add length and volume to your own natural lashes without the need for mascara.
Semi permanent individual eyelash extensions can last up to 30 to 60 days with proper care and regular maintenance. The life cycle of eyelashes is around 45 to 90 days after which it falls out, along with the extension; a new lash immediately grows in its place – therefore, a touch-up application is needed to replace the fallen lashes and to keep eyelashes looking fresh.
Flares are another alternative for eyelash extensions, lasting from 1 to 2 weeks, it is a great choice for a special occasion.

What type of eyelash training has your lash specialists received? Our Lash Specialist have been trained by some of the top eyelash manufacturers in the country. Flirt & Flutter puts safety first therefore we are not loyal to any particular manufacturer. We believe that you can learn knowledge from each one and formulate the service to be one of the best on the market. Some companies may have good adhesive but their training methods could be better. And the on the other hand, the training methods are good and the adhesive is poor quality. Flirt & Flutter Lash Specialist frequently visit major esthetician trade shows to keep current with the latest innovative trends in the lash industry. We seek the best and most current knowledge on the market to service our clients.
We believe that "Practice Makes Perfect!" Experience the best service with eyelash extensions find out how long has your lash specialist been in the industry. It takes time and practice to build speed and manuever hand manipulations. Just because a lash specialist has received certified training from a popular eyelash company does not make him/her one of the best in the industry. Lashologist & Master Cosmetologist Shea Evans states, "I have been doing lashes for many years now, and when I first started I was not the best in the industry. I went to training workshops after workshops and when it was all said and done, I figured out that I had to get my hands on as many people as I could to build my speed and master my hand manipulation. I have seen many poor lash jobs and I always say to myself this person needs a little more practice."
Just remember, It is not always best to go with the popular brand name, Experience is the "BEST TEACHER!"
How long will my Eyelash Extensions last? Eyelash extensions are temporary and may last up to 3 to 8 weeks depending on the after care. A real lash life cycle is around 25-28 days and as yours grow and fall out, so will the synthetic ones that are attached. If your hair and nails grow quickly then that means that your lashes will also be growing, shedding and renewing themselves quickly. You may find that your lashes may not last as long as someone with slow hair growth. Your lifestyle and the type of work you do will also have a bearing on how long they will last. A person who works in the food industry, where there is quite a bit of heat, steam and oil may not last as well as someone who works in an air conditioned office.
