Can you get eyelash extensions at 12?

There's no doubt that you can get eyelash extensions at any age. However, it's not ideal for minors for several reasons. Deka Lash specializes in eyelash extension services and products. Whether this is your first time wearing eyelash extensions, or you're an experienced eyelash professional, highly trained eyelash professionals offer a consultation at the start of each eyelash service to ensure that your expectations are met and that you're left with the look you like best.

Customers can opt for the basic, elite or volume look. Anyone can go to a pharmacy and buy false eyelashes. There is no minimum or maximum age limit. However, to obtain eyelash extensions, some salons have a lower policy and require minors to be at least 16 years old with parental consent to receive eyelash extensions.

Can I tell you a secret, just between you and me? I have been using eyelash extensions continuously for about two years. They make me feel like a Disney princess whose pure and gentle spirit has made delicate, maskless butterflies live on my face. The main reason for undergoing an eyelash extension procedure is simply to avoid applying and removing false eyelashes repeatedly. To preserve your extensions, keep them clean and gently untangle them with a mascara stick or a flawless brush every day.

Determining the right age for beauty procedures, such as ear piercings and eyelash extensions, is never easy. Medical problems associated with eyelash extensions include the possibility of trauma and infection to the eyelid or cornea, permanent or temporary loss of eyelashes, and allergic reactions to glues, some of which have historically contained formaldehyde. A 14-year-old child may wear false eyelashes, especially since in adolescence they are more curious about their appearance and presence. It's easier for 14-year-olds to get false eyelashes in strips than eyelash extensions because of cost, parental consent, and beauty salon rules.

For the beginner but curious, I asked the owners of four eyelash extension salons (and an ophthalmologist) what to expect when they're spreading. That said, a good age to get eyelash extensions is when you're old enough to know how to take care of them. The general view is that synthetic lashes tend to look brighter and more dramatic than softer, clearer silk lashes, although different extensionists offered me conflicting descriptions of their attributes. If you or your child are only thinking about buying eyelash extensions for that special event, the temporary solution is almost certainly the best option.

Some school policies have strict dress codes, although they don't allow a lot of makeup or false eyelashes. It's normal and healthy for a girl between the ages of 11 and 15 to want to experiment with makeup and false eyelashes, but it's up to parents to determine if they're comfortable with having their children wear them.
