Christmas and New Year make the time of the year when everything sparkles. Everything is glittery – clothes, bags and accessories, hair and makeup, and sometimes even eyelashes!
Yes, some people like to add playfulness to their lashes and make them look festive. And the best way to do that is by getting Christmas lash extensions. Yup, they are a thing, so let’s get you inspired.
What Are Christmas Lash Extensions?
Just like regular extensions, Christmas lash extensions are attached one by one to your natural lashes. They come as individual, classic 1:1 eyelashes or in fans, which are called volume lash extensions.
The only difference is that Christmas lash extensions are, well, Christmassy.
Each extension or a fan is dipped into glue and attached to one natural lash. They are not attached to the eye skin, so they’ll fall off as your natural lashes normally shed.
Extensions last for up to 8 weeks, but half of them fall off after a month, so a lash fill is required to maintain the full set. Otherwise, they look gappy, asymmetrical and sometimes even messy.
Christmas lash extensions are usually in some vivid color, often contain glitter and sometimes even have a tiny tiny decoration on them.
It’s usually something colorful and glittery, or anything that is related to the holiday season – snowflakes or stars, for example.

Where Can I Get Christmas Lash Extensions?
If you’ve already had eyelash extensions and you have a trusted eyelash technician, contact them and see if they have this in their offer for the festive season.
If you haven’t had eyelash extensions before, you can search for reputable lash salons in your area and contact them to check if they offer Christmas eyelash extensions.
A Note for Lash Techs
If you are a lash tech and want to offer this service for the holidays, you can create Christmas lash extensions for your client by adding a couple of colored eyelash extensions into the standard set.
For instance, adding a few of white extensions will make the lashes look dreamy and snowy.
Adding colored extensions in the traditional colors of Christmas, such as green and red, will also be a great choice. If you want to add cute decorations, you can find cure snowflakes, stars, or glittery hearts to complete the look.

What If No One Does Christmas Eyelash Extensions Near Me?
If you really want to spice up your Christmas look and there’s no option of getting Christmas lash extensions in your area, you can go with falsies or strip lashes.
Their biggest disadvantage is that they are a one-time thing and you should take them off at the end of the day, when you remove your makeup. But they can be perfect for a Christmas party!
You can also get them on Amazon, and here are some cute falsies.
How Do I Maintain Christmas Lash Extensions?
If you want your Christmas eyelash extensions to last as long as possible and look great for New Year’s Eve, you need to take care of them.
Firstly, follow the aftercare tips. You shouldn’t get them wet in the first 24h. Also avoid heat and steamy rooms.
Then, if you want to maintain them properly, you’ll need to wash them daily, just like any other eyelash extensions.
Also, avoid mascara, lash curler, and makeup removers that contain oil, because they will make the lashes fall off much sooner.

What Do I Do with Them After Christmas?
If Christmas (and New Year) is over and you still have your Christmas lashes on, here’s what you can do.
The first option, you can just wait for all of them to fall off. Yes, it’s usually said that they can last up to 8 weeks, but they rarely stay on as long as that.
The other option is removal.
It is always advisable to get a professional removal by the lash technician. Removing the eyelash extensions on your own can result in damaging your natural lashes, especially if you are impatient and you tend to pull the lashes.
But, if the lash salon is closed for the holidays or you can’t get a professional removal, you can learn how to do that on your own in this article.
Once again, we advise you to be very careful and look for professional removal first.
