The History Of Eyelash Extensions And False Eyelashes – By Las Vegas Eyelash Extensions

So often clients ask “Where did eyelash extensions come from?” and “When were they invented?”. Eyelash extensions actually evolved from the ever changing false eyelash addiction. False eyelashes birthed modern day semi-permanent eyelash extensions.

The first false eyelashes was made from human hair woven by hand with fine gauze by a neighborhood wig maker. Thus it started.

Artificial lashes emerged, as did cutting-edge designs of false eyelash application that enabled the application of only a few carefully placed hairs additionally referred to as flares or clusters.

The false eyelashes of today are far more versatile and natural-looking than the ones that were prominent in Old Hollywood or even– more just recently– in the 60’s when Twiggy was the big “it lady”. They came in a wide range of various options but in the 60’s, overdone doe eyed lashes were latest thing. Artificial false eyelashes were in all fashion: made with human hair or artificial products, they were asked for by women in every beauty parlor, and used in clusters of lashes or individually, both were glued to the lash line, on the eyelids. Customers didn’t care how fake they looked. It was the fashion to be bold.
