Introduction to Lash Extensions
Lash extensions are one of life’s great inventions. Before they came around we all had to make do with mascara. Sure, mascara is great and not too much drama, however, we are sure you will agree that it can be a bit of a nightmare to use/apply/remove. When you have lash extensions, the moment you wake up to the moment you go to sleep, your lashes look perfectly done.
History of Lash Extensions
In 1902 famous hair stylish and inventor Karl Nessler patented a method in the United Kingdom to weave artificial eyelashes and eyebrows and by 1903 was selling artificial eyelashes in his salon in London. In the United States the patent for false eyelashes was performed by Canadian Anna Taylor in 1911. However, like many things it would be popular culture that lead to more widespread use of false eyelash extensions. In 1916 director D.W. Griffith was working on his movie Intolerance and wanted actress Seena Owen to have long eyelashes and to have her eyes to stand out. He made use of false eyelashes that were human hair woven through a fine gauze material.
As techniques improved false eyelashes became very popular with the general public in the 1930s and again in the 1960s. The original fringe base false eyelash gave way to more advanced designs such as flares or cluster lashes which were used to thicken specific areas of the eyelash. The style in the 1960s was a brash and bold one with a touch of overdone to the overall style at the time. By the 21st century more advanced eyelash extension methods came into use. Unlike the artificial eyelashes of the past modern eyelash extensions are far more precise.
