The New Craze in the Beauty Industry: Would You Try Eyebrow Extensions?

Published

Eyebrow Extensions via BuzzFeed - BellaNaija - July2015001I honestly don’t know why it took so long for this to get the attention and practice it’s getting now. The new craze in the beauty industry is one that will add a little fleek to your step – eyebrow extensions.

I mean, if you can add some fullness to your eyelashes, why not apply some of that “magic” to your eyebrows. Right?

Eyebrow extensions are a relatively new wave in hair extensions world that helps women who have scarce brows, want fuller brows, have lost their eyebrows due to an illness or just want to obtain the ultimate ‘fleektivity’ in the eyebrow game.

Basically, individual hair extensions are attached to the brow area using a tweezer and glue suitable for skin, and then placed one by one in the desired areas – kind of how individual lashes are placed. According to Umbreen Sheikh of CEO of NYC-based beauty place – Wink – “The process can take up to two and a half hours to get the shape and fullness just right.

The cost of getting this done is between $75 – $350 (N15,000  – N70,000).

As far as how long they last? Not very long. If you sweat a lot they won’t last for a long time. Experts suggest you use a cleanser for your face while the eyebrows are installed rather than washing your face.

I’m still on the fence about this one – it doesn’t look like it hurts, and I have gotten individual lashes put in before so the feeling won’t be that new. Maybe if I want to take a break from makeup for a while? But those prices though!

Would you take on eyebrow extensions?

      Applied properly they do not pull of your existing brows…just enhances them.

    Nah, I’m not that sophisticated for this. Let me pass on this one. Life is not that stressful. There’s nothing my Davis No 18 eye pencil won’t give me.

    I think i like the idea, for people who have really little or no eyebrows, but i feel for the price it should at least last a bit longer at least.

      Ehn you say? Wild growth hair oil works?
      I’ve never had brows o, I want some in my lifetime

      @atoke you’re so wrong for sending me this post. Do I look like I will fork money out for anything beyond eyepencil or eyebrow filler. Extension ko, intention ni.

      @biebeee I am a living testimony of never had brows…I have used it and it works. I use it once a week (usually on fridays). it works wonders for hair. you can get it at Cassabella about 4500….. nd if its just for your brows… it should last you a lifetime

    I won’t do it, but it has to be a better option for those who have tattooed their eyebrows. Yes you, I am talking to you (my dear aunt is one of them.)

    A lot of fakery all over. The quest for beauty *sigh* Anyway, that’s inevitable sometimes; perhaps! I think it looks good but not quite worth it for that amount.. Besides, I can’t do without washing my face. I actually need a laser treatment for my brows because they grow wild.
