Common Misconceptions About Eyelash Extension

Updated: Aug 3, 2023

Eyelash extensions have become increasingly popular in recent years, but there are still many misconceptions about them. In this blog post, we'll address some of the most common misconceptions about eyelash extensions and set the record straight.

Misconception #1: Eyelash extensions damage natural lashes.

Another common misconception is that eyelash extensions damage natural lashes. When applied correctly by a trained and experienced technician, eyelash extensions are safe and do not cause damage to your natural lashes. Every single Capital Lashes employee has experienced multiple bad lash sets and knows first-hand the horrible effects of a dodgy set of lashes, and that is why all of us are committed to providing the safest, most sustainable and luxurious lashes in a super comfortable and educational way.

Misconception #2: Eyelash extensions are painful.

This is a common misconception, but it's simply not true. The process of getting eyelash extensions is completely painless and comfortable - if you have experienced otherwise, your lash artist just wasn't doing it right or using bad products. Your artist will take great care to ensure that you are comfortable throughout the entire process here. In fact, many people find the experience quite relaxing and sleep through the appointments! Once properly done extensions are on, they aren't actually annoying; in fact, you can't feel them on at all!

Misconception #3: Eyelash extensions require a lot of maintenance.

While it's true that eyelash extensions require some maintenance, it's not as time-consuming or difficult as many people believe. With proper care, your extensions can last for around three weeks before needing to be filled in. The only main part of lash aftercare is cleaning them, which can be done quickly in the shower with a lash cleanser or as part of your nightly routine. Read our Pre-Appointment and Aftercare Information for more information on maintenance.

Misconception #4: You cannot get your lash extensions wet for 24 hours.

This is a tell if your lash artist is trained properly or not. In 2015 a huge industry myth was busted as studies found getting your lashes wet actually helped cure the lash adhesive! That is why at the end of every service, we lightly mist your lash set.

Misconception #5: Eyelash extensions are one-size-fits-all.

Eyelash extensions come in a variety of lengths, thicknesses, curls, textures, and styles to suit your individual needs and preferences. Your technician will work with you to determine the best style for your natural lashes, eye shape, lifestyle, and desired look. Here is more information on how we style your eyelash extensions.

In conclusion, eyelash extensions are a safe, comfortable, and convenient way to enhance natural beauty. By dispelling these common misconceptions, we hope to help more people feel confident and beautiful with eyelash extensions.
