Synthetic Eyelash Extensions: Window Dressing for the Soul
Specialists create a lush look with synthetic lashes. Learn what to expect with Groupon’s exploration of these eyelash impostors.
The first modern false eyelashes were made from human hair, commissioned by silent-film director D. W. Griffith so that his starlet’s lashes would touch her cheeks with every soulful downward gaze. Although you may think it’d be hard to improve on these natural materials, in reality the difference in texture between eyelashes and the stuff that grows from the head would make such extensions look a little strange. Stick-on strips have been available in drugstores for decades, but it wasn't until the mid-2000s that cosmetic scientists developed semipermanent extensions. Also known as grafted lashes, these delicate fibers fuse to the top of pre-existing lashes with pharmaceutical-grade glue, lending eyes a lush, natural-looking fringe without the use of mascara.
As clients lie on a table with their eyes shut for 40–90 minutes, a professional applies artificial lashes strand by strand, carefully bonding them about a millimeter away from the eyelid to avoid any contact with the skin or eye. The lush look stays intact for about two to six weeks—natural eyelashes have a finite lifespan, and when they fall out, they take the extensions with them.
To replicate the look and feel of natural hairs, lab technicians forge artificial lashes from plastic, faux-mink poly fibers, silk blends, or high-quality keraspecific fibers, which are chemically identical to real human hair. No matter the material, synthetic extensions should feel comfortable and light as they frame what poets have long called “the windows to the soul” and “the worst part of the face to be poked in.”
As a third-generation natural healer, Moi Day Spa owner Sheila Ko has always been immersed in holistic health and beauty methodologies. Ko is a massage therapist and reiki practitioner, and she performs treatments ranging from post-surgical lymphatic massage to soothing energy-work sessions. She is a proponent of the natural CR500 weight-loss program—which combines stimulant-free oral drops, food guidelines, and nutritional supplements—having personally tried the program and lost more than 17 pounds in 30 days.
But Ko goes beyond sharing her Old World wisdom and knowledge of alternative-medicine techniques. An avid entrepreneur, Ko also seeks out the latest technologies and products to help people look and feel their best. As a licensed aesthetician and medically trained permanent-makeup artist with more than 10 years of experience, she carefully blends pigments according to her client's skin tone and uses digital tattooing techniques to create eyebrows and lips that, like a fruit-bowl painting made of orange juice, closely approximate the real thing. During facials, Ko uses an advanced ultrasound device to exfoliation skin and the ECHO2Plus oxygen-infusion system to nourish cells. She is also certified in Endermologie Lipomassage cellulite-reduction technology. Her varied and extensive experience earned the day spa a 2012 Talk of the Town award for excellence in customer satisfaction.
