Bottom Lash Extensions
What Are the Alternatives to Extensions for Bottom Lashes?
For many years, extensions ruled the eyelash world, but beauty professionals are always
being asked for more from their clients with bottom lash extensions making their way into
treatment lists across the US.
With clients wanting fuller, longer lashes, is adding more extensions the best solution? Let’s
take a look.
Pros & Cons of Lower Lash Extensions
Extensions are popular for creating a dramatic look for the eyes, so it’s no wonder that
many turn to lower lash extensions to balance out the appearance of the upper lashes.
Those beauty technicians trained in the art of applying both upper and lower false lashes
know just how time-consuming it can be, but they do create fuller, glamorous results
which can change the look of their client’s eyes.
However, there are some downsides to the treatment. As the natural bottom lashes are
often thinner and shorter than their upper counterparts, lower extensions have a shorter
durability and they can interlock when blinking. You may also find they’re not suitable for
some clients, with their bottom lashes just too sparse for the extensions to be applied safely
The lash lift has revolutionized eyelash services in the beauty world, offering clients who

- Unlike lash extensions, the application process is much shorter. The complete
process only takes around 45 to 60 minutes (with tints), meaning it’s more
convenient for clients than spending a few hours getting extensions applied.
- Extensions can have a tendency to look false, but the curved rods used for lash lifts
create a smooth, natural looking curl which begins just above the root. Not a kink in
- Unlike a perm or extensions for lower lashes, the lash lift is suitable for everyone,
using different sized rods depending on lash length.
- For optimum results, clients can also ask for lash tints to be applied, complementing
their skin tone and overall look.
- The solutions applied during the treatment such as the Elleebana strong hold
adhesive often contain keratin and biotin which provide a nourishing treatment to
- How long does lash lift last? Educate your clients about the right lash lift aftercare
(things to avoid in the first 24 hours after treatment), and they can last up to 3
months! After this time, clients simply book an appointment for a top-up.
