Having thicker and longer lashes is every girl's dream. Eyelash extensions are a rapidly growing beauty trend these days. Not to be confused with the self-stick falsies of yesteryear, these semi-permanent, synthetic extensions are glued on one by one by a technician using tweezers and adhesive. Unless you have trained yourself or you have done it many times already, there is no better way to ensure safety than go to a professional. If you are confident that you can really do it safely on your own, then you can just buy an eyelash extension kit and do it yourself. The two things at stake when deciding whether to do eyelash extension yourself or go to professional eyelash extension technician are cost and safety. You should weigh which one is more important to you. You save money if you do it yourself but you are safer in the hands of a professional.
Another option are permanent eyelash extensions. This involves a 1 time surgery and you are done. During and immediately after any surgical procedure their is a small element of risk of infection. Although all precautions are taken to minimise this risk but it is still a risk no matter how small so make sure you research all aspects of the procedure before you make a final decision.
