Will it hurt to get them?
Absolutely not! There should be no reason why getting eyelash extensions applied should hurt at all. There are a select few people who do experience allergic reactions to the adhesive, but that is mostly swelling and itchiness and no pain.
How long will they last?
Eyelash Extensions typically last up to 6 weeks. Your eyelashes go through a natural growing and shedding process.
