Eyelash Extensions During Pregnancy?

Pregnancy is one of the most beautiful experiences in a woman's life. Everyone wants to look beautiful and elegant during this period. When a pregnant client asks about eyelash extensions, you need to know if it's possible or not. Let's take a closer look at this topic.


The old adage: never ask a woman if she is pregnant unfortunately does not apply to eyelash extension treatments. When someone undergoes a cosmetic treatment, it must always be announced in advance whether the person is pregnant or not. How do you deal with this as an eyelash stylist? Can you take a risk with a pregnant woman? How do the eyelash extensions behave?

If a woman has already had eyelash extensions regularly before pregnancy, then she can also do this during pregnancy. It's a big myth - women can't get gel nails, eyelash extensions or go to the hairdresser while waiting for their baby. That is not true. During pregnancy, a woman's body begins to work a little differently. The reaction to various substances is very individual for everyone, and one of the contraindications to the build-up is a hormonal jump in the body. The hormonal background of a pregnant woman is not the same every day and there is nothing to worry about. For many customers, the eyelash lengthening treatment is gentle and without mood swings.

If the customer is not sure about allergies and is unsure in advance, we recommend that you carry out a speed patch test. You can put a small drop of eyelash glue on the customer's wrist and wait for the reaction. If no allergic reaction occurs, then you can proceed with eyelash extensions.


If you have a pregnant client who really wants new eyelashes, then it is important that she feels comfortable. We have prepared some tips for you:

  • Lying on your back for long periods of time can be extremely uncomfortable for a pregnant woman. You also need to go to the toilet much more often during the lash treatment. Always plan more time for pregnant women (approx. 30 minutes longer). The next customer shouldn't have to wait any longer.
  • A simple trick to make pregnant women more comfortable during eyelash extension treatment is to place them on the outside of the cosmetic bed with a pillow. In this position, they can relax best and the baby will be less stressed.


Menstruation is also a small change in a woman's body. It is not recommended to do eyelash extensions on the first and second day of menstruation. As this is a special time for every woman for very active change. Not only can the eyelash extensions crumble, they are also unlikely to adhere securely to the natural lashes. Even during the treatment it will be almost impossible to apply eyelash by eyelash. Despite the high-quality preparation of the eyelashes, which includes working with a primer, the eyelash extensions may not adhere perfectly to the natural eyelashes.
