History of Lashes
The history of eyelash extensions dates all the way back to 1916. Since then, lashes have continued to change and improve into the styles and options we have today. They come in a variety of lengths, thickness curls and -the most popular material of lashes – are synthetic silk and mink.
In a article released in 2018, Rebecca J. Taylor, MD, Nashville Ophthalmologist and clinical spokeswoman for the American Academy of Ophthalmology says that if done correctly, eyelash extensions are safe.

Are lash extensions for me?
Not everyone is a good candidate for eyelash extensions. Talking with your lash stylist can be helpful in determining what process and products will work best for you. On a larger scale, eyelash extensions may not be for you if any of the following apply:
recent eye surgery
currently on thyroid medication
dry eye syndrome
first trimester of pregnancy
DO use oil free makeup and removers specifically designated for use with eyelash extensions
DO clean extensions with oil free makeup remover everyday, like original baby shampoo
DO sleep on your back or side / sleep with a satin pillowcase
DON’T get lashes wet for 24 hours after application
DON’T rub, pull, or tug at lashes
DON’T use oil based eye products
DON’T use crimping type eyelash curlers
DON’T pick or remove extensions yourself
