Why does it seem like boys always get the best eyelashes, and most women end up with shorter lashes that require multiple applications of mascara to even become visible? Although the universe has yet to answer this question, there is a temporary solution to stubby lashes—eyelash extensions.


Of course, false lashes have been around since the early 20th century, but if gluing something onto your eyelid one-handed with nothing but your bathroom mirror strikes fear into your heart, or the result comes out looking like a small tarantula taking a nap on your eyelid, you may want to consider an easier method to achieve longer, fuller lashes.


For around two hours of your time and two-hundred dollars, Krystal Kershaw, owner and stylist at Celebrity Make-Up Studio and Lash Bar, located at 3301 Ryan St, will apply semi-permanent individual natural looking eyelash extensions that last for two to four weeks. Choose the "Magic Coating” option, with a protective seal, and you can extend the life of your lashes. This seal actually helps your stylist see lighter lashes more clearly, and can result in more lashes put on during your appointment.


When the two to four week life-span of your lashes comes to an end, most lash studios offer re-lash sessions, which cost much less than the original process and require around forty-five minutes.


If you’re looking for something a little more upscale, Celebrity Make-Up Studio and Lash Bar offers a full set of Siberian 100% Real Mink lashes -- a little pricier at $300.00, but they’re imported from France and use a medical-grade adhesive to lengthen your lash life-span. This process takes two and a half hours to apply, and results in more natural-looking lashes that last for three to four weeks.


Kershaw says clients who have extremely oily eyelids may not be the best candidates for eyelash extensions. She also recommends you choose a stylist who is licensed, sanitary, and experienced. If your stylist is not properly isolating each lash, it can cause damage. Therefore, it is important to ask to see licenses, training certificates, and before and after pictures of actual clients.


Want to try something natural-looking and new that will give your lashes a boost without having to use mascara? Eyelash extensions may be just what you’ve been waiting for.
