3 Types of Lash Extensions

3 Types of Lash ExtensionsIf you are hoping to open up a lash business one of the first things that you’ll need to master is the main difference between lash extensions. In today’s world of lashes, there are a number of popular products when it comes to lash extensions. Each lash type has its own pros and cons. Here are the 3 types of  lash extensions that you can offer to your clients.

Mink Lash Extensions

Mink Eyelash extensions are produced with mink fur. The small hairs that are taken from minks can be constructed into natural looking lash extensions and dyed into nearly any color. The main issue with mink lash extensions is that they are the most expensive type of lash extension on the market. They often cost roughly $300-$500 for a full set and this can grow demanding for your inventory requirements as a lash artist. Another disadvantage is these products are taken directly from the animal and we like to use animal cruelty free products.  If you see inexpensive mink lashes, there is a good chance that they are synthetic or they could be taken from another animal. Ordering Mink Lash extensions could be for just a few of your main clients. This type of lash extension tends to not keep the curl when it gets wet. 

Faux Mink

A Faux mink lash is a happy medium between mink lashes and silk lashes. The extensions are made primarily of polyester and it delivers a greater versatility than traditional silk. The added benefit to this type of lash is that it’s one of the lightest on the market. There is less chance of irritation and less problems with lash retention as well. The large added benefit of Faux mink is this is a cruelty free option. As all the ingredients here are synthetic there is no need for animal involvement to produce the lashes. With traditional mink lashes, animal furs are required in order to produce the product. This cruelty free product could gain more approval with clients that are passionate about animal rights.

Silk Lashes

Silk eyelash extensions are one of the most popular options on the market today because they are also one of the cheapest eyelashes to put on. Silk eyelashes create a striking difference with your clients and they are often one of the best extensions to strong natural lashes.

When it comes down to becoming an eyelash artist, you will need to decide the type of lash extensions that you should order most often. More often than not, you will likely be ordering mostly silk lashes and synthetic eyelash extensions. Getting in some practice with each type of lash can make you a more in demand professional, especially if you have a client that would always prefer the use of Mink Lash extensions.

As each of these types of eyelash extensions has their own properties and behaviors for installation it is important to know more about the differences between each and to be ready with a wide variety for your customers. Now that you know the main differences between these types of eyelash extensions, you can focus on ordering the types of eyelash extensions that will work best for your business. Discovering the types of extensions that you need to practice with and making sure that your business is well taken care of means doing the research and discovering the best lashes for your clients and your business.
