I had a plan when I was staying above Select City Walk Mall 2 weeks ago - during our mini Babymoon vacay:
I'll go to the Eyelash Extensions Salon right after breakfast, as soon as it opens.
Absolutely no makeup....
Inside the mall?
Yes, so what?!
I'd googled and found out there is a place that does Eyelash Extensions here in Delhi......
Novalash Studio, Select City Walk Mall, Saket. I gave it a visit to ask about everything.
Application Time: It takes 2 hours or more.
Cost: Rs.5700 for top lashes.
How long do eyelash extensions last? 4 weeks. They start to fall off gradually. Yes, lashes will probably look uneven eventually.
After Care: You can't use mascara, no makeup removers, no rubbing.
Touch-ups: Every 4-6 weeks.
How it's done: Single lash fibers are glued to your natural lashes - one by one. There are different lash sizes and shapes. Also, you can decide on the density, whether you want them thicker or not.
Here is a video I found on YT that shows how it's done:
I did not do it this time, because:
- I thought it's too expensive, especially after the darn TAX. In Malaysia, the procedure costed only around Rs.2500-3500 (in 2011)
- 2 hours just lying there. When you're pregnant, you can't lie on your back (or in 1 position) for long + you need to visit the loo every 10 mins. So it would have been one of the most uncomfortable experiences.
- There's another reason, a deal-breaker, something to do with the person who was supposed to do the extensions on me, but it'll sound kind of mean if I say it. So I won't.
- Husband also disapproved, because of point 1 & 2.
If you're disappointed that I didn't do it & am not able to show you the results, don't worry. It's at the top of my to-try list & I'll do it one day. It's just wrong timing right now.
In case you decide to go for it, I advise you to do your research first. Just make sure the salon uses safe products, especially the glue. It has to be formaldehyde-free.
Also, I'd love to hear about your experience if you have them, so please write to me! =)
So, how many of you are ideal candidates for Eyelash Extensions?
