- Time. They take time to apply and if you’re a bit claustrophobic it probably isn’t the thing for you. You lay on a massage bed for up to 60 minutes with your eyes taped shut. It’s really not bad, no different to getting a facial, but if it’s something to consider for you, factor it in.
- Fragility. Sometimes you just really want to wash your eyes. When you have extensions you really need to be careful to not rub the eyes too much as you will pull out some of the lashes.
- Diversity. Because of the above, it’s difficult to rock any heavy eye makeup looks with extensions to avoid ruining the lashes when taking off that killer smokey eye.
- Durability. They look fantastic when you first walk out of the salon but like any extension 4-6 weeks later when you’re due for an infill you tend to look a bit crazy cat lady.
