Humans have been playing and beautifying their eyelashes since ancient Egypt, but it wasn't until the late 19th century that people discovered they could lengthen their eyelashes with human hair. In 1911, a Canadian inventor named Anna Taylor patented artificial eyelashes, which included glued eyelashes or lashes in strips, thought to be made of human hair. A few years later, German hairdresser Karl Nessler provided false eyelash services at his salon in New York. In the 21st century, more advanced methods of eyelash extension began to be used.
Reportedly developed in Korea in the early 2000s (based on ancient techniques), these methods became widely used in 2004, being widely used by celebrities and movie stars who favored their popularity. Modern eyelash extensions consist of individual hairs attached to existing lashes with a medical grade of adhesive. These eyelash extensions come in a wide variety of styles, colors and materials, including human hair, synthetic silk, polyester and Siberian mink fur. Today's extensions are lightweight, comfortable, and much better than the old methods we saw in the past.
All your eyelashes are at a different stage at any given time, which means that some of your eyelashes are about to fall out, while others are experiencing a growth period (this is true whether you have eyelash extensions or not). Human hair eyelashes are no different from human hair extensions: the materials used and the methods used to make them are the same. Whether human hair is used to create hair extensions, eyelash extensions, or adhesive false eyelashes, the effect is the same: supernatural. One of the scariest things about eyelash extensions is that the process isn't regulated in some states, such as Alabama, Maryland, Connecticut, Delaware, Idaho and Wisconsin. I know that all eyelash extension specialists tell you that they won't damage your natural eyelashes if done correctly, but maybe I only have very weak eyelashes.
I would go to the best eyelash technicians and every time my last extension fell out, they would greet me with natural eyelashes that were much shorter than when I started. When it comes to eyelash extensions, there are a lot of different types to choose from. So it should come as no surprise that there are also extensions made from human hair. The result can be great (I woke up with a strip full of eyelashes and went to work without putting on any makeup), but after a week I started to wake up with my pillowcase covered with eyelashes, extensions and my own natural lashes. The history of eyelash extensions is especially interesting and goes back further than most of us realize. From ancient Egypt to the 21st century, humans have been playing and beautifying their lashes with various materials and techniques.
The first patent for artificial eyelashes was obtained in 1911 by Anna Taylor and Karl Nessler provided false lash services at his salon in New York in 1915. In the 21st century more advanced methods of lash extension began to be used and became popular among celebrities and movie stars. Today's extensions are lightweight, comfortable and much better than the old methods we saw in the past. Human hair is used to create hair extensions, eyelash extensions or adhesive false lashes with supernatural results. However, it's important to note that the process isn't regulated in some states so it's important to find a reputable technician who won't damage your natural lashes.
