We ALL want to wake up with long, curled, dark eyelashes on a morning without wasting time painting on several layers of mascara. If you’re anything like us, you’ve more than likely contemplated getting lash extensions a million times, spent months gazing at before and after transformation pictures and justified the price over and over again.
But before you book your appointment, you’ll need to find out the bad, the good and the downright annoying sides to having ‘I woke up like this’ lashes.

Do Eyelash Extensions Ruin Your Real lashes?
Who Should I Go To?
If you live in a big city, it shouldn’t be hard finding a proper lash technician. Going to reputable salons (no matter how good that Groupon deal is) will ensure than your technician wears a mask, sanitises their equipment and sterilises their tweezers on the regs.
Can I Shower With My Eyelash Extensions?
While you can shower with eyelash extensions, you have to wait 24 hours after you’ve got them on. Because the adhesives take either 12 or 24 hours to dry, it’s important to make sure no water, steam or gel touches them during this time.

How Much Will They Cost?
First and foremost, lashes are pricey. A full set can easily set you back £60-£100 depending one where you live, the type of lashes and your technician’s experience. And with your natural lash cycle (where you lashes shed) in two to three weeks you’ll have to book in for infills, with replacement lashes costing between £30-£70.
