Everything You Need to Know About Eyelash Extensions Dubai




Eyelash extensions are known for enhancing face features. The extensions are individual lashes made of silk or mink that are curved to replicate natural eyelashes.

They are applied to your existing lashes one by one using medical-grade adhesive, creating a fuller, longer lash line.

They last around four to eight weeks before needing fills to maintain the look. With proper care, eyelash extensions in Dubai salons claim extensions can last even longer.

If you’re considering getting extensions, this guide will walk you through everything you need to know, from costs and types to aftercare.


The Eyelash Extension Procedure


The eyelash extension procedure takes around one hours the first time, with fill appointments lasting 30 to 45 minutes. During the process, you’ll lie down and relax with your eyes closed while the eyelash technician works. 

They’ll carefully apply extensions one by one to your natural lashes, generally working from the outside of your eye inward.

The technician may use tape or silicone pads to help keep your skin taut and your lashes separated during the process. The extensions are curved to lift your lashes for an eye-opening effect.

To get the most natural look, technicians will use extensions of varying lengths, thicknesses, and curls to replicate natural lashes.

The final result should look perfectly natural, just like your lashes but better! You’ll leave with gorgeous new long lashes in place of your natural ones.


Types of Eyelash Extensions



There are a few different types of eyelash extension materials to choose from:

  1. Silk eyelash extensions: Silk lashes have a glossy, smooth texture that is comfortable to wear. They have a slightly artificial look but blend well with natural lashes.

  2. Mink eyelash extensions: Mink lashes are made from soft, feather-light fur, making them look and feel more like real eyelashes. They come in many colors and styles. Mink is finer and more flexible than silk.

  3. Synthetic eyelash extensions: Synthetic lashes are cheaper but don’t blend as seamlessly with natural lashes. They’re also heavier than silk or mink which could irritate eyes or damage natural lashes over time with the extra weight.

  4. Hybrid eyelash extensions: Hybrid lashes combine natural and synthetic materials, blending mink or silk with a stronger synthetic for better hold. This makes them more affordable while still having a fairly natural appearance.

The three main eyelash extension styles are natural, glamorous, and dramatic. Your technician will help determine which style fits your desires best.

Natural sets aim for enhancement while still looking subtle and understated. Glam sets are fuller and longer, while dramatic sets are ultra-voluminous lashes, generally for special events.


Eyelash Extension Costs


The average cost of eyelash extensions in Dubai salons ranges from AED 350-1100 depending on the salon, lash type, and style chosen. Dramatic mink eyelash extensions will typically cost more due to the amount of lashes needed and materials used.

Cost breakdown:

  • Initial full set: AED 350-1100

  • Fill (every 2-3 weeks): AED 185-370

  • Removal: AED 55-110

Additional factors like technique, experience, and location can influence the price as well. Beware discounts that seem too good to be true. Quality application is extremely important for safety, so don’t just choose the cheapest option.

It’s a good idea to call around for quotes specific to the salon instead of going by advertised prices. Ask what’s included in the initial set cost and how much the fills cost to maintain the extensions after.

While they might seem expensive compared to drugstore mascara, keep in mind that it eliminates the need for mascara and daily eyelash maintenance. Properly applied and cared for, eyelash extensions at Cerise Beauty Salon claim extensions can last for months.


Eyelash Extension Aftercare



Caring properly for your new eyelash extensions is vital for getting your money’s worth from them. Your technician will go over aftercare instructions, but here are some basic rules to follow:

  • Don’t get extensions wet for 24 hours after application

  • Cleanse lashes very gently using an oil-free cleanser

  • Don’t rub your eyes or tug on your lashes

  • Use oil-free, water-based mascara and eye makeup only

  • Avoid steam, saunas, and swimming pools

  • Don’t use eyelash curlers or apply false lashes

  • Comb lashes gently with a sterile lash comb only

Make sure to schedule fill appointments every 2-4 weeks. Fills cost less than the initial set and are necessary for maintaining the extensions.

As your natural lashes shed, fill and replace fallen extensions. Skipping too many files can result in bald spots.


Eyelash Extension Removal


While professionals don’t recommend DIY removal, you can safely remove eyelash extensions at home if necessary. To avoid damaging natural lashes, be extremely gentle and take your time.

Start by softening the adhesive using steam from a shower or hot towel held over closed eyes for a few minutes. Then use your fingers or tweezers to slowly slide extensions off, being careful not to pull.

An oil-based makeup remover can also help break down adhesive for easier removal.

For best results and safety, professional removal is recommended. Salons use a chemical adhesive remover or solvent to dissolve the glue, preventing hairs from breaking or being pulled out.

The process takes around 20 to 30 minutes and typically costs AED65-110. No matter the removal method, never pull hard on stuck lashes to avoid tearing out natural hairs.


Pros and Cons of Eyelash Extensions


Like any beauty treatment, eyelash extensions come with upsides and downsides. Make sure you know the pros and cons of using them before deciding to do so. 

Pros:

  • Save time on daily makeup

  • Look awake and vibrant at all times
