Eyelash enhancement is a slippery slope. First, you spend hundreds of dollars in search of the perfect mascara. Then you start waking up early to apply false lashes every morning. And if you're still not satisfied, you fully commit to your fringe and take the plunge to get eyelash extensions. If you haven't tried them yet, brace yourself for a full-blown addiction.

The best ones look totally real, and if you go to the wrong tech, you could be putting yourself at risk for permanent damage. We interviewed extension experts Kim Jaynes and Erin Taylor of Borboleta Beauty, a luxury lash training and retail brand, to find out everything you need to know before you go for your first appointment.
