Eyelash Extensions is a practice that enhances the length, thickness and fullness to natural eyelashes. The extensions may consist of silk, mink, or synthetic hair. Methods of enhancing the eyelashes include full strips, clusters, and individual, one-by-one extensions. 

They are a great addition for any therapist to add to their current treatments. It is very popular with clients, as they create a fuller, thicker and longer look to their natural eyelashes and enhances their eyes to give a softer, sexy or dramatic look, depending on the application, ‘prettying’ the eyes to their full potential.

Applied correctly they will look so natural that no-one will know they are not real.
