    I believe there are semi-permanent and permanent ones, which could last for months. All the weird feeling of putting them and having them on for the first time are definitely worth it when you see your gorgeous eyes pop up on your wedding pictures and videos!

      Thank goodness for this thread! I love the way the fake eyelashes look, and when I have somewhere to go I usually buy them at a drug store and put them on myself, and I end up frustrated and at the end of the night the lashes are falling off. So since everyone on here seems to recommend MAC I will look into that brand for lashes! Maybe the stylist at the hotel can put them on for me too.

        Hi Ladies, just some quick note about eyelash extensions to answer some questions I saw some of you post...

        I am an eyelash technician and if done properly you shouldn't feel them at all.

        They shouldn't feel heavy and shouldn't damage your natural lashes. I read how some of you were able to remove them with baby oil...if it was done with quality glue and done right then oil would not work to remove them. Over time oil could break down the bond but not in one shot.

        They are really durable and you can swim, and sleep, and wash your face like you normally would...just avoid oily makeup remover or waterproof mascara (most people don't wear mascara with them anyways) and keep your lashes dry for the first 24-48 hours.


        Also, read that someones eyes were very sensitive and watery after they took their contacts out...please take your contacts out BEFORE getting them done as your eyes are shut for 2 hours and it will definitely cause irritation and dryness for your eyes.


        My suggestion would be to make sure you consult your technician about length and thickness so that you get the desired look you are looking for. If done properly they should shed slowly like your natural lashes and most come for fills every 3 -  4 weeks without them looking too sparse.


        I would recommend getting them done about 4 weeks before your wedding...then again on the week before you go away get a fill. They will be thicker then the first set put on and it will give you time to get used to them and make sure you like them. I love them for vacations...not mascara and your eyes pop all day long.


        Ill be getting them done for my wedding. If anyone has any questions about them I'd be happy to answer them. Just send me a message.

          Sarah, thank you so much for all of this information!  I honestly hadn't considered getting my lashes done, but now that I read this it sounds like a perfect idea!  I'm going to look into some places in Calgary that I could go - any suggestions anyone!?  I live in Calgary now, but I'm originally from Windsor - not too far from where you are.  It looks like you'll be getting married at the same resort a few months after me!  Great choice!  Thanks again for answering some of the questions.  I'm glad I've stumbled on this thread!

              MyTye2B Honestly it doesnt hurt :) !!! Most of my clients fall asleep on the massage table. I play spa music and it usually happens lol. A pad sticks under your lower lid to seperate lower lashes ... Thats probably the weirdest feeling of the whole process.

                Awesome, that is very reassuring.  Thanks a lot!  I think I have found a place out here that has lots of great reviews - and even gives a discount to my company!  I'll let you know how it all goes. I appreciate the advice.  :)
