Has anyone gotten eyelash extensions before? I was thinking of getting them done before my wedding then would keep them for the honeymoon. I was planning to get it done at a nail salon. Does anyone recommend or not recommen this treatment? If you’ve had them done, how much did it cost and how long did it last?

I had the Xtreme Lashes done about three weeks ago for my wedding on Saturday, but I had it re-done a couple of days before the wedding. I wanted to get use to the feel of it and they recommended that I get them done a few weeks before the wedding.
It was $250.00 for the initial and the re-lash was free.
I absolutely love them! They last about two to three weeks. I went swimming all day Sunday and they are still on!
Definitely a winner!
Not sure how the nail salons work but I love the xtreme lash brand

My friend gets hers done at a nail salon in Dallas. I am so jealous!!! I think I will get them as well. I just know if I do it for my wedding that I will go back and get the fills for a long time!

@hunnybunny: DO NOT GO TO A NAIL SALON!!!!!!!!!
As an extended beauty trainer I have seen some terrible things from untrained technicians. Are you aware of the risks? Have you studied up on which type may be for you? Lashes come in so many options. For the day alone, strip lashes are the best choice. I offer semi permant lashes, which MUST be removed by a pro (medical graded ashesives are used). When you choose to have your lashes done, request to see proof of training, demand an allergy test 48 hours before your appointment. I had a client who had discount salon lashes applied, she had a severe allergic reaction, eyes swelled shut and she lost most of her own lashes. Be very wary of lash extensions, unless you have had an allergy test.

I wouldn’t do it. I’ve only heard horror stories about eyelash extensions or using latisse. Not worth it!

I had them done before…costed about 75 bucks…I was kinda shocked at the length..I felt it was very unnatural looking and just wanted them taken off right after, but decidec to give myself a ocuple days to get used to them (I wear MAC false lashes all the time but I just wanted to give this a shot) well, I kept them on until my event and I hated them…they were PAINFUL, and I just had this urge to pick at my eyes all thet ime. Washing my face was a nightmare.

@fresitachulita: This would be an example of improper application. My guess is the strands were touching your skin, they NEVER should. I thought they felt like cement mascara, while I do offer them, I despise them for myself.

My mother had them done and lost many of her natural lashes when they came off. Ugh. Nightmare! If you are going to do it, I would try to find a lash specialty place. Do not go to a nail salon!!!

I’ve just had them done today at a professional beauty salon as a tester to see if I want them for the wedding day. They’re longer than what I expected them to be (however this is probably due to the fact that I have only ever worn mascara on my lashes) and feel how I imagine false lashes to feel. I don’t find them uncomfortable which is good, just feel a little strange at the moment (however I’m getting used to it after a few hours already). The lashes took 2 hours to apply and I was provided with an aftercare leaflet and little brush (like a mascara wand) to gently comb through them. They cost £70 and should last between 2-8 weeks, depending on eyelash growth.
Here’s a few photos I’ve just taken:
Please ignore the undead look going on below (I don’t have any make up on)!
