Eyelash Extensions On The Rise


Who would think that eyelash extensions would be a thing?

In the past 10 years, the industry has grown and is still on the rise.   Surprisingly enough, the demand for this unique extension service has only increased in demand and popularity.


I became  eyelash extension certified in 2007.    The industries demand was only beginning to make a ripple.

Fast forward to today’s advertising and everyone is jumping aboard.

The mascara ads have really been trending, in the past year, and I would be curious to know if it is because of the staggering popularity of eyelash extensions.

The next time you look at an actual mascara ad, be sure to look at (usually) the bottom of the advertisement for the words, “lash inserts”.   Lash inserts are another name for “eyelash extensions”.
