The cost of eyelash extensions can vary depending on the style and fullness you choose, such as classic, hybrids, volume, Russian volume, Hollywood volume, or mega volume.

While it’s best to have your eyelash extensions removed professionally, you can attempt removal at home under the guidance of Olesea Tihon, CEO of Eyelash Boutique. Use a cream lash remover (not gel) purchased from an online lash store. Close one eye and apply a small amount of the cream remover with a cotton swab, leaving it on for 10-15 minutes. Ensure all residue is removed and rinse your lashes with cotton pads and water. Repeat the process for the other eye. Choose a cream lash remover as it’s safer for self-removal.

Maintaining clean eyelash extensions is essential to prevent issues like blepharitis and Demodex lash mites. Olesea Tihon recommends using a lash shampoo every 2-3 days to keep your lashes clean. More frequent cleaning is advisable if you engage in regular workouts.

To extend the life of your lash extensions, follow these tips: Clean your lashes with a lash shampoo, book regular maintenance appointments, avoid heavy, oily makeup, opt for matte eye makeup, and take precautions when using hairspray.

For the first 24 hours after getting eyelash extensions, avoid getting them wet, including in steamy showers. When showering, be cautious not to position your head directly under the full force of the water flow. Additionally, use hair conditioner sparingly and avoid applying it to the lash roots to prevent your extensions from loosening.
