How Long Do Eyelash Extensions Last?
While we would like to believe that those voluminous curls can last us for at least a decade (or maybe it is just us), the reality is that eyelash extensions are not permanent. Eyelash extensions typically last through a full lash growth cycle, which usually lasts 6 to 8 weeks. Having said that, most lash technicians would suggest going for a touch-up 2 to 3 weeks after getting your eyelash extensions done to fill in any gaps caused by any fallout.
How to Remove Eyelash Extensions
Once you are ready to bid your eyelash extensions farewell, you might be wondering how should you go about getting the straggles off. However, first things first…
Do NOT Attempt to Pull Out Your Eyelash Extensions
If there was a cardinal sin you could commit with your eyelash extensions, it would be trying to yank them out. Eyelash extensions are bonded to your natural lashes using a surgical-grade adhesive, which means that they are glued to your natural lashes pretty tightly. By pulling them out, the chances are you risk losing your natural lashes. Plus, let us not forget how painful the pulling them out would be. Yikes.
Do NOT Remove Your Eyelash Extensions By Yourself!
A quick Google search might welcome you with a slew of DIY eyelash extension removal guides. Although removing your eyelash extensions at home might seem like the most cost-effective method, many lash technicians advise against doing so as it might seriously damage your natural lashes.
So while it might be tempting to try to get those straggles off using cotton balls and coconut oil, your lashes might thank you for not doing so.
Always Look for a Pro to Get Your Eyelash Extensions Removed
While you can wait for your eyelash extensions to fall out on their own, we also get the temptation of getting rid of those loose eyelashes. The solution? Look for a pro to get the job done. Many eyelash extension salons offer removal services, which could range from $10 to $40 typically.
So… What is the Eyelash Extension Removal Process Like?
Removing your eyelash extensions can be a quick and simple process when done right by lash technicians. As lash extensions are securely bonded to your natural lashes using a strong adhesive, the lash technician would use a lash remover to soften the adhesive and loosen up any bonds. After a few minutes, the lash technician would proceed to use a micro brush or tweezers to remove your eyelash extensions.
The entire process lasts for 15 to 20 minutes. However, in rare cases, the removal process could take much longer if excessive amounts of adhesive were applied to the natural lashes.

“My favourite lash style currently is the Kourtney K in the Avant Garde variation! I’ve done it twice since the Karlashian launch and am hooked because it is so extra yet so wispy! Dr. Lash is the only lash place I’ve returned to for more than one visit. On top of top-notch customer service, I have experienced no irritation, minimal natural lash loss, and also enjoyed an amazing retention rate for all my lash extensions. The staff also emphasises a lot on lash care and lash health. Not to mention, they make the gorgeous lash designs extra light and comfortable!
