It is believed that eyelash extensions were first used in ancient Egypt. It is said that they were used to enhance the beauty of the eyes and make them stand out. In the 21st century, more advanced eyelash extension methods began to be used. Unlike previous artificial eyelashes, they are much more precise.
They are said to have been developed in Korea in the early 2000s (based on old techniques). These methods became widely used in 2004 and were widely used by celebrities and movie stars who favored their popularity. Modern eyelash extensions consist of individual hairs attached to existing eyelashes with a medical grade of adhesive. These eyelash extensions come in a wide variety of styles, colors and materials.
Materials include human hair, synthetic silk, polyester and Siberian mink fur. Today's extensions are lightweight, comfortable and much better than the old methods we saw in the past. The main reason for the invention of eyelash extensions was to enhance the beauty of the eyes and make them stand out. All eyelashes are in a different phase at any given time, which means that some of them are preparing to fall out, while others are experiencing a period of growth (this is true whether you have eyelash extensions or not).
So when eyelash extensions started to become popular, I didn't take a break before booking an appointment. One of the scariest things about eyelash extensions is that the process isn't regulated in some states, such as Alabama, Maryland, Connecticut, Delaware, Idaho and Wisconsin. However, over the years, the function of eyelash extensions has changed and they are now used for a variety of purposes, such as making the eyes look bigger, fuller and more defined. The result was great (I woke up with bangs full of eyelashes and went to work without wearing any makeup), but after a week I started waking up with my pillowcase covered with eyelashes, both extensions and my own natural eyelashes.
While COVID affected the eyelash extension industry like any other industry, it's not going to go away anytime soon because the eyes are now even more important, thanks to facial masks that cover the lips. W Griffith wanted her actress to have eyelashes that would touch her cheeks, so she told her wig manufacturer to make false eyelashes for her heroine, Seena Owen. Since an individual extension is applied to an individual eyelash, that extension will fall off on its own when the natural eyelash comes off. In the past decade, many manufacturers of eyelash extensions have appeared in China, Vietnam, Thailand, India and other Asian countries due to the expensive nature of Korean false eyelashes.

The history of eyelash extensions is especially interesting and goes back further than most of us think. Classic extensions are applied in a one-to-one ratio, which means that an extension is applied to each natural eyelash. I know that all the specialists in eyelash extensions tell you that they won't harm your natural eyelashes if done correctly, but maybe I just have very weak eyelashes, I would go to the best eyelash technicians, and every time the last extension fell out, they greeted me with natural eyelashes that were much shorter than when I started.
