Lashes to Die For: Debunking the Myths & Embracing Beauty at Overstrand Aesthetics!

April 09, 20242 min read

Here at Overstrand Aesthetics, we're all about empowering you to feel your most confident and beautiful self.  From head to toe, our Hermanus beauty salon offers a complete range of aesthetics services to help you achieve your unique goals. And now, we're thrilled to add another weapon to your beauty arsenal: eyelash extensions.

But with any new beauty treatment comes a flurry of questions and, unfortunately, sometimes misconceptions. Fear not, lash lovers! Today, we're debunking some of the most common myths surrounding eyelash extensions, so you can embrace gorgeous, effortless lashes with complete confidence.

Myth #1: Eyelash Extensions Will Ruin My Natural Lashes!

This is a big one, and thankfully, a complete myth! When applied by a certified and experienced technician (like the amazing lash expert here at Overstrand Aesthetics!), eyelash extensions won't harm your natural lashes. We use only top-quality materials and meticulous techniques that ensure your natural lashes stay healthy and thriving.

Myth #2: Eyelash Extensions Only Come in Dramatic Styles.

Not true! While eyelash extensions can certainly create a glamorous look, they can also be incredibly natural-looking. Here at Overstrand Aesthetics, our lash technician specialises in the classic application technique. This technique uses individual lashes that are applied one-by-one to your natural lashes for a seamless, subtle enhancement.  The classic look adds length and definition without appearing overwhelming or dramatic.

Myth #3: Eyelash Extensions are High Maintenance.

Let's face it, who wouldn't want to ditch the daily mascara routine? While "fill-ins" are recommended every 2-4 weeks to maintain fullness, the extensions themselves can last for weeks with proper care. Think of it as a quick refresh to keep your lashes looking luscious and flawless.

Myth #4: Eyelash Extensions Feel Heavy and Uncomfortable

High-quality, lightweight extensions applied by an expert should feel like a dream – you might even forget you're wearing them! Here at Overstrand Aesthetics, we use only the finest materials and techniques to ensure your comfort and satisfaction.
