With the popularity of eyelash extensions growing globally, several news types of eyelashes are popping up. But what’s the difference?
Although any of the extensions will give you constant compliments, there are some vital differences between these popular eyelash extensions that you should be aware of.
Differences Between Mink, Silk or Synthetic Eyelashes
The main difference between the types of lashes comes down to their firmness, are they real fur, faux fur or synthetic.
Synthetic or Silk lashes are the heaviest, great for a really full thick look, often rated at 0.20mm in thickness.
Mink or Faux Mink are usually thinner and softer than Silk rated at 0.15mm-0.2mm in thickness, but can also come thicker as well.
I usually use Mink, and I consult my clients to figure out the thickness that will work with their expectations.
Real Fur won’t hold a curl as well as Faux Fur.
Mink Lashes are the new craze. If you’re going for that 100% natural look, this is the best you can get. Most people love Mink because they look so natural and give them full, fluffy eyelashes.
Real Mink lashes come from the Mink tail, either the Siberian Mink or the Chinese Mink. The Siberian Mink are the better of the two.
There is also the Faux Mink, they are more affordable, come very close to holding all the same characteristics except if you get them wet, they won’t lose their curl which is a huge advantage over real Mink.
Mink lashes are known to be very light and soft, making them a more comfortable choice over silk lashes. They also have a gloss or shin to them and have a more natural fluffy look. They often come with a perm and will last a little longer than silk.
You should choose Mink lashes if you want extensions that you’ll be wearing for a prolong period of time. In other words, you plan on keeping them and continually retouched.
The minks are also great if your own natural lashes are thinner, because the mink lashes are very light and soft.
If you want a more natural looking lash which you can apply mascara to enhance, then Mink should be your first choice.
Note: You should only use mascara designed for extensions.
Now this is the scary part. An initial set of Real Mink lashes will be a bit pricey.
I charge all first-time clients up with an initial set of Mink lashes for only £40 half set and £65 full set ( I often offer discounted prices on them also).
Silk Eyelash Extensions
When someone says Synthetic Lashes they are referring to either Silk or Acrylic.
Synthetic Silk being the more popular of the two for the lighter feel. Not as light as Mink, but they are more comfortable than Acrylic and can be used for everyday use.
Synthetic Silk Eyelashes are great for short term wear or special occasions since they are thicker, full and have a uniformed perfect curve to them.
Since they already hold such a dark pigment, there is no reason for mascara.
They are usually much thicker than Mink lashes rated at 0.20mm.
Choose Synthetic Silk eyelash extension for those special occasions. A wedding, a photo-shoot or a part in a film. You can use them as everyday lashes as well but they won’t be as light and comfortable as the Mink lashes.

most women love that freshly waxed look and feel, many don't have the courage

to shaving if you have hair you're uncomfortable with, and it is recommended
for people of all ages.
is much better because it removes hair from the root, it can last up to a
month, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different growth cycle. Over time it thins the hair so less

It is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. Almost any area of the body can be
waxed, including eyebrows, face, bikini waxing, legs, arms, back, abdomen and
feet. There are two types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair:
waxing (soft wax) is accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin. A
cloth or paper strip is applied and pressed firmly, adhering the strip to the
wax and the wax to the skin. The strip is then quickly ripped against the
direction of hair growth, as parallel as possible to the skin to avoid trauma
to the skin (i.e, bruising, broken capillaries, ingrown hairs caused by hair
follicle trauma and lifting of skin). This removes the wax along with the hair.
wax, is applied thickly and with no cloth or paper strips. The wax then hardens
when it cools, thus allowing the easy removal by a therapist without the aid of
cloths. This waxing method is very beneficial to people who have sensitive
skin. Strip-less wax does not adhere to the skin as much as strip wax does,
thus making it a good option for sensitive skin as finer hairs are more easily
removed because the hard wax encapsulates the hair as it hardens.
I recommend an
exfoliating scrub the day before and advise not to apply body lotion on the day
of the treatment as it is easier to remove the hair. It is excellent for summer when we will be able to wear shorts and dresses to show our amazing hairless legs and arms.
In my opinion anyone who hasn't given it a try should do it because the feeling that the service gives us afterwards is amazing, we feel more confident and good about ourselves.
We all know that skin condition is a matter of skin health and not just aesthetics. While a proper skin care is one of the most effective ways to maintain the issue of ageing, blemishes and dehydration, our skin could use an extra boost, which is why I recommend the use of electrical machines also known as facial and body electrotherapy. Electrotherapyis a

the face and bodyand lifting of the face.Current technologies offer various electrical machines to aid in the treatment of skin condition. Such machines include High Frequency, Galvanic and Micro-Current. As a professional I know many people aren't aware of the benefits of these treatments which could boost their confidence and self esteem as well as for the beauty therapist to be able to offer more treatments to clients and Salon owners which could increase their business in every way. Ageing, blemished and dehydrated skin are conditions that we
all face. Our skin ages every day, and it is up to us to take the necessary preventive measures to ensure our skin ages at a slower frequency. Electrical
treatments offer ways to address the issues that go with any skin condition to
help clients maintain not only a youthful appearance, but also a good skin health. Galvanic
A galvanic facial involves the use of mild electric direct currents
consisting of positive and negative ions to refresh, stimulate and rejuvenate
the skin. The average time for the treatment can vary from 25 to 40 minutes, prices also vary.
The treatment aims to improve the skin in two ways:
which is a process called desincrustation, which a pre-treatment gel with a negative charge is applied
to the skin; and
nourishing through iontophoresis, which a second gel with a positive charge is applied to a clean and dry skin.
This is achieved by the application of a small, constant,direct current. The treatment works on the belief that chargedionsin theskinare
either attracted or repelled from theelectrodes (conductors or probes). Galvanic treatment is normally done on the face for deep
cleansing and on the body to treat cellulite.
Benefits and effects of Galvanic:
• Tightening and firming of tissues.
• Decrease in blood flow.
• Decrease in sensitivity.
• Reduction of oedema and lymph stagnation.
• Oxygenation of cells.
• Calms and soothes the skin.
• Restores critical moisture.
• Regenerates the skin.
• Stimulates cell
renewal and improves skin vitality. High Frequency
treatment uses low-current high-frequency alternating currents, carriedvia a
glass electrode (conductor or probes). Because the high frequency current converts some of the oxygen
in the air into ozone, the treatment has a germicidal action. The treatment is used to aid healing, and also
to help desquamation (the skin's natural exfoliation), and stimulate sweat and
This helps dry out spots and it is good
for oily skin. An indirect high frequency facial uses a saturator electrode held by the
client to draw a moisturising massage medium deeper into the skin, and so is
best suited for more mature or dry skin types. The treatment also lasts between 25 to 40 minutes and it can be done once a week for the first 4 treatments and once a month after that.
The machine can be used most on the face but can also be used on the back for a "back facial" (the same process for facials) to treat spots.
Benefits of High Frequency:
• Stimulates circulation of the blood.
• Increases glandular activity.
• Aids in elimination of toxins and absorption of nutrients to the cell.
• Increases metabolism.
• Germicidal action occurs during use.
• Generates heat inside the tissues.
• Aids in deeper penetration of product into the skin.

tired and stressed skin.
• Assisting in massage
for an ageing skin using the indirect method.
Microcurrent is a low level of electrical current that reflects body’s own natural current,
which is sub sensory in most causes and therefore barely noticeable. The treatment works by passing a very small
direct current through muscle tissue to stimulate our sensory receptor and that
is why it is very important that the beauty therapist knows exactly where the origins
and insertion of the muscle are for best results.
It is a anti ageing
skin treatment used to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by
improving texture and appearance of skin and reducing the overall visual
appearance of ageing. Skin care therapists use micro-current to tone and firm
the skin and it is most related to the term "non surgical face lifting".
The treatment can be done between 30 to 45 minutes and it depends on the client's skin type, condition and age. Most beauty salons offer the treatment by courses of 6 or 10 sessions and prices also vary. It can also be applied on the body (breasts) to help lifting the skin.
Benefits of Microcurrent:
muscle tone in face and neck.
• Lift jowls
• Sun damaged

Eyelash extensions are enhancements designed to add length, thickness and fullness to natural eyelashes to achieve a beautiful full luscious and long set of lashes that are natural and you won't even know they are there.They can be separated into two types: temporary (two weeks) and semi-permanent (up to 8 weeks). Adna Cristina Beauty has years of experience in applying single semi-permanent eyelashes extension, giving clients the confidence they need. The lashes we use are of a professional product made of a soft and naturally curved synthetic material designed to bond to human eyelashes that last up to 8 weeks. Eyelash hair is particularly fine, and therefor the chemicals used are a specifically formulated bonding agent, it dries soft, remains flexible and bouncy and most importantly causes no damage to the natural eyelashes. Now a days there are many eyelash extension brands selling their own product which can be from flexible and medio durability to a much more quality products. Of course you will have to do infills from the second or third week which you pay around £25 to £40 and the service itself can be priced from £65 to £80 average.
I had the service done many times and it does feel good, I loved the treatment so much that I decided to do the training and it was a success, all the ladies wanted to have their eyelashes done, it makes us feel more confident and good about ourselves. I think if you haven't had the treatment yet, you should give it a try and see for yourself. The extensions doesn't last long if you are wearing oil based makeup such as liquid eyeliner or mascara. So when you have the eyelashes done try not to use oil based makeup and never rub your eyes; it will make your natural lashes fall out and also the synthetic lashes that are glued on them, you don't want that to happen before the time.
Any comments or suggestion I'm here to help... :-) Thank you for stopping by!
