2) Disadvantages of false lashes.

There are many advantages of false eyelashes, just like the advantages listed above. I personally think that its disadvantage is applying glue. Wearing false eyelashes with glue may cause the false eyelashes to be blown open or even blown off by the wind because of the weak adhesion of the glue. Therefore, in the choice of glue, we must pay attention to the quality

3) Advantages of lash extensions

  • lash extensions because of its operation principle. Each hair of lash extensions is pasted on our real eyelashes with a relevant professional glue. So lash extensions is firmer.
  • Another advantage is that even without any makeup, lash extensions will make us look very good, and natural and have more charming eyes. In daily life, if you don't like to make up, but want to highlight your eyes more vividly and beautifully. Lash extensions are a very good choice

4) Disadvantage of eyelash extension

  • The main disadvantage of eyelash extensions is that the cost is relatively high.
    Because lash extensions are to be pasted each cluster of false eyelashes on our real eyelashes with glue. We can't complete this operation by ourselves, so we need a skilled professional false eyelash planting technician to help us.
    This professional process involves labor costs. The costs are different in different places.
    Generally speaking, the existence of labor costs will lead to increase costs. Moreover, the service of lash extensions is a one-to-one service (VIP service). A technician can only serve one customer in a unit of time, so the labor cost cannot be shared by multiple customers in a unit of time. Therefore the cost of lash extensions is relatively high.
  • Another disadvantage is that lash extensions require maintenance. If the lash extensions fall off from your real eyelashes, you need to go to the salon where you did the lash extensions. And ask a professional technician to fix up the missing false eyelashes. Otherwise, the whole eyelashes will be particularly ugly because of the lack of some false eyelashes.

The above is a general introduction to the whole set of false lashes and lash extensions, including their advantages and disadvantages.

Of course, in view of the disadvantage of the strip false lashes, if you choose a better glue, this disadvantage will not be a disadvantage. Similarly, if you are financially well-off and have enough budget for your beauty expenses, the high cost of lash extensions will not be a problem.

Therefore, whether to choose false eyelashes or lash extensions depends on your actual situation.
