Rejuvenate Your Look: Eyelashes

A thick, lush head of hair isn’t the only type of enhancement people are seeking. Many are also looking to play up their eyes with a thick fringe of lashes.

The first set of fake lashes hit the scene in 1916 when filmmaker D. W. Griffith cobbled together his own set of falsies from strands of human hair and gauze. His goal was to make his leading lady’s eyes the star of the show, according to the New York Times. The lashes may have achieved the desired effect, but left the film star with some red puffy eyes, after-effects of his primitive experiment in lash enhancement.

But today women can achieve the doe eyed look without the side effects, by using lash enhancing extensions. These individual lash extensions elongate and thicken existing lashes. They’re applied in a 1.5 to 2.5 hour session, one by one, and can last until your natural lashes shed, a process that takes 60 to 120 days.

No need for mascara with these lashes, which give clients that flirty, eye-enhancing look, which can stand up to morning showers and dips in the pool. Styles include natural looking options, appropriate for work, or lashes that crank up the drama factor. “Clients come to us because eyelash extensions are a great, simple way to enhance their appearance, says Youliana Roussou, owner of Boston-based Maxi Lash. “The full set usually takes about 1.5 hours and can last up to 4 weeks. No need for mascara or maintenance.”
