types of eyelash extensionsHey lash boss, how’s your week been?  Hopefully you’ve been slaying lashes left and right.  This week, we’re talking about three different types of eyelash extensions.  What?  There are more than one?  There are a few different options you have when shopping for lashes.  We’re going to explore the differences between silk, mink, and faux mink lashes.  Each have their pros and cons, and it can be difficult to decide which is best for you and your clients, so we’re going to help you, babe.

Silk Lash Extensions

Silk eyelash extensions have some pros and cons.  One of the great things about them, is that they’re one of the cheaper options on the lash extension market.  They’re also thicker than some other options, so they’re noticeable, which is what clients are paying for!  However, these should only be used on clients with super strong natural lashes, because thick = heavy.  And we already know that too-heavy extensions can damage a client’s natural lashes.  No breakage here, babe!

Mink Lash Extensions

Mink eyelash extensions come from, well, a mink.  It is said that their tiny hairs are collected by brushing them, but if you’re going for a vegan or cruelty-free vibe, we suggest you stay away from real mink eyelash extensions.  Not only that, but they’re the most expensive eyelash extensions on the market, meaning your clients will be paying between $300 and $500 for a full set, according to Emily McClure at Bustle.  We like to offer quality, but affordable services so that we can cater to the most clients, and this ain’t it!

Faux Mink Lash Extensions

Faux mink eyelash extensions are the way to go, we think.  They’re comparable in cost to silk extensions, but they’re made of polyester, which is a lot more versatile than silk.  Faux mink extensions are highly customizable and you won’t have any issue with weight.  Not only that, but there’s no mink involved, and you can make sure that your supplier or manufacturer is entirely cruelty-free and vegan.  So, they’re made specifically to be gentle on natural lashes, they’re cruelty-free, and they have the look of mink extensions without the price tag?  Sign us up.

So, now that you’re an expert in three types of eyelash extensions, do you know what you’re going to invest in?  If you’re looking for quality faux mink eyelash extensions at a great price (and cute as hell branding), check out The Lash Professional’s lashes.  Did you know we even have faux mink lashes in a variety of different colors?  I know, really cool.
