“I totally agree that there is a big diff in the training of this industry, across the board. That was my whole point, unfortunately.  There is no standardization and the consumers have to do so much homework to sort this out.  It's really too bad!  Xtreme Lash is a stand-out, and is a great example of what it looks like when you're trying to do it right.  ”

“Not so, it happened to me and I was giving a very surprising education by my eye doctor about this.  In LA, it's a problem and he explained how ignorant the beauty community is about this issue.  If you saw a photo of what happened to my eye and heard what he has to say about this you'd pipe down.  This is real and can happen to anyone getting extensions.  ”

“Actually, you are dangerously misinforming people. There are FOUR different kinds of blepharitis ONE of which is bacterial staphylococcus. http://www.steadyhealth.com/articles/Staphylococcal_Blepharitis_Treatment_a186.html

This is contagious and YES, you can get if from a lash studio.
Of course there is allergic bleph but I think it amazing how few people working in that industry are even aware that there is a staph based bleph, nor do they realize the implications of not sterilizing their equipment. Lash bars are giving people blepharitis without realizing it. Read about infective bleph here and protect yourself and your eyes. Once you contract this kind of bleph it can be VERY hard to get rid of. Best of all, speak to an ophthalmologist and ask him about this kind of blepharitis and he will confirm that staph based bleph is contagious and they are seeing more and more of it in big cities where lash bars are taking off.

“KristinMAC, I agree with MOST of what you said. The problem I have with your statement is you are blanketing a whole industry of professionals who DO have proper training, have spent years of practice and money perfecting their skills and who take precautions to make sure everything is kept sanitized and sterile when doing eyelash extensions.
I happen to be such a professional. I am a licensed esthetician who is Novalash AND Xtremelash certified. I have many clients who have been coming to me for 8 years and there is no damage to their lashes or eyes. If the eyelashes were damaged there would be nothing to attach the eyelash extensions to, therefore, these clients would have stopped coming to me long ago.
Many people who are not properly trained are doing eyelash extensions and hurting this industry. "Buyer beware" when getting eyelash extensions a client should always check that the technician has a valid license, and certification from a reputable eyelash extension company such as the two I mentioned previously. There is a reason for this. Novalash and Xtremelash will not sell a kit or training to anyone who is not an R.N. or licensed esthetician or cosmetologist. Please do your homework before you bash a whole industry of professionals who really do care about their clients and the health of their clients' eyes. Courtney Akai and Jennifer Fitzpatrick are two professionals that clients can count on to do eyelash extensions properly.”

“I have been in ophthalmology for 25 years. I am a certified medical ophthalmic technologist. I am also a manger for 8 ophthalmologists who are board certified. EVERYONE has staphylococcus on their body. Blepharitis is not contagious!! You cannot catch any form of it from another person or object. It is a chronic lid margin disease. You can never really get rid of it . Staphylococcus also causes styes and chalazions. Most people who are effected are fair skinned and have a genetic predisposition for blepharitis. Like I said before certain types of conjunctivitis are contagious and you could certainly catch that from someone putting lash extensions in but you could also get it from shaking someones hand and rubbing your eyes. Of course they should sterilize all the instruments they use. 99% of people who have blepharitis have never had lash extensions and they shouldn't get them. I have been putting my own lash extensions in for many years before it was all the rage and have never had a problem. You might want to check out the American Academy of Ophthalmology's web site for information.”

“You can contract blepharitis from lash studios and it's NO JOKE. Even if you are meticulously hygienic with your own face and body, you can still contract this bacteria from a lash bar and it is not always resolvable. It can be permanent and is most often long term.

Blepharitis can destroy your lashline. Also, I have never met ONE person who gets her lashes done regularly who doesn't talk about how much they thrash your lashes. This writer clearly either IS a lash tech OR interviewed one. WRITE ME AN ARTICLE ABOUT THIS WHERE YOU INTERVIEW 5 WOMEN WHO'VE HAD THEIR LASHES DONE, LONG TERM. Then, we'll talk....

Most lash people are NOT trained enough or that well but they never seem to know this about themselves. Stick to natural lash growth serums or temporary lashes that you can apply yourself for a glam night.”

“Blepharitis is not contagious. We see blepharitis in our office everyday. The only possible infections you can "catch" are forms of conjunctivitis such as viral or bacterial. Lash extensions may make your lashes fall out and could have an allergic reaction. Many people have blepharitis its common and can be aggravated by eye make up.”

“Being sneaky and dishonest is cowardly and furthermore....controlling. It takes courage to stand behind ones choices and not try to control what other people are going to do in response to said choices. By lying and hiding like a coward, you attempt to control her behavior by taking away her the freedom choose to carry on with you OR move on depending on how she feels about you wanting to see other people, too. Some women ARE actually okay with that. Some men actually have the respect and courage to talk to their wives and girlfriends about this option, too. People aren't perfect and long term relationships take a lot of skill (i'd know!). You don't have to be perfect, but you do have to be honest and be a man. Cowardice is gross and embarrassing for the women associated with these men.”

“Obviously the behavior you describe isn't limited to men....you can use the word "cowardly" as you do , however its simply a human condition that most people will think about themselves first, and certainly if you are in an unfulfilling relationship that would be the case...what would your suggestion be to a man who is married, has kids, doesn't want his marriage to end...but wants something more?”

“I'd been reading a book basically about how globalization just wasn't the boon to the average American that it was to the elite. It came down to meaning that they could move their operations to places where wages were lower, and worker rights less regulatedm while most Americans were looking at job losses. And, my wife was talking about this and that, while the globalization thing was bouncing around in my head. But, it was something I knew she wouldn't be interested in, even though it had serious clues about what's wrong with our country and culture. I felt a little bad about being so uncommunicative. So, next day, I started talking to her about what I'd been reading. I was right: she just wasn't interested. I talk a lot more to people who seem interested in what currently has my attention.”
