Synthetic Lashes

The future. Yes, synthetic eyelashes were meant to shine in areas where the traditional mink eyelash falls short. This is the solution the industry came up with for a higher quality more cost-effective eyelash extension.

With a need to produce a higher quality more cost-effective lash extension, the Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT) fiber lash was invented. This PBT fiber-based lash was originally introduced in South Korea and is what most synthetic lashes are made from today. Here are some benefits of using full synthetic eyelash extensions:

  • Holds a better curl
  • Retains a glossy shine
  • Safe
  • Cost-effective
  • Easy to apply



The PBT fiber holds its curl for the life of the lash and can withstand much harsher conditions than a real mink lash. There are many variations to the PBT fiber lash. These are just a few of them. The classic lash, thinner volume lashes, and flat ellipse lashes. All PBT fiber lashes can be bonded with a Cyanoacrylate glue and will leave your clients feeling beautiful and happy!
