Woman Loses Eyelashes After Receiving Popular Beauty Treatment

Long, thick, beautiful eyelashes are “in” according to the beauty world. That’s why many women have decided that mascara isn’t enough, and have opted for artificial lashes instead. But beauty Salon owner Emma Dhanjal is warning women everywhere about the potential dangers of fake lashes.

Dhanjal said she was horrified by what she saw when a client walked into her salon pleading for lash extensions just in time for her birthday weekend. Dhanjal posted the story to her business’s Facebook page, Emmaculate Beauty salon in Perth, after she met the woman.

Dhanjal’s Warning

“PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do your research,” she wrote. “This poor girl has been left with extremely damaged natural lashes.” Dhanjal included photos of the woman’s eyelashes alongside her post.

“She wanted lashes for her birthday this weekend and I could not lash her because she has been left with no lashes…” she wrote. “Her natural lashes are sooooo damaged from the place she has been having her lashes done, they were falling out when I touched them with tweezers.”

Dhanjal added that her client also had inflamed eyelids and she would need to see her doctor for infection. “Her lashes may never be the same again,” she said.

She ended her post with a final warning, “This should NEVER ever happen to your lashes, please do not be scared of having lash extensions applied, if you do your research and go to the right place your lash extensions can be applied for years and years without having a break,” she explained. “I take a lot of pride in my work and this makes me feel sick it is still happening out there. Make sure you are 100 per cent certain you know the background of your next eyelash artist.”

Facebook users responded to her post by expressing shock or sharing their own horror stories with fake eyelashes. “I feel her pain as I had the exact same thing happen to me last year – I had to wear sunglasses for a month to cover up the mess,” one woman wrote.

Dhanjal shared her advice for people looking to get fake lashes. “My advice for people looking to get lashes is to look at reviews, and make sure the professional knows what they’re doing,” she said. “Prices are also important – you get what you pay for if you go too cheap. Definitely look at photos on social media to find out if the place is any good. I do want to say, however, that people shouldn’t be scared of having their eyelashes done. This shouldn’t happen, and won’t in most places.”
