5 Best Eyelash Extensions in Johannesburg (That Actually Stay On!)

  • Credibility and Experience - I chose studios whose technicians have at least 4 years of experience doing eyelash extensions in Johannesburg. I also included studios whose technicians are trained in beauty institutions like Flutter Institute.
  • Scope of Services - I selected studios that offer a wide scope of eyelash extension services like lash filling, bottom lash extensions, lash removal, and at least two tiers of lash volume for customers.
  • Quality of Products - I narrowed down studios that only use synthetic mink, silk lash, and Russian Volume strands for customers. I also made sure to consider studios that use waterproof and hypoallergenic glue.
  • Affordability - I selected studios where eyelash extension services start at R495. I ensured they offered reasonable rates considering the service inclusions: assessment, technician's experience, number of strands per eye, and appointment length.

I used to dread putting on false eyelashes for parties and social gatherings. It took forever to get them perfectly aligned. Plus, the sticky glue on my fingers was a nightmare!

Fortunately, eyelash extensions in Johannesburg have become incredibly popular. These synthetic lash strands mimic your natural lashes and are meticulously glued on one by one. The result? Gorgeous, natural-looking lashes that last over a month!

If you’re reading this, take it as a sign to ditch the falsies and switch to eyelash extensions. Here are my top studio picks in the city for stunning lashes!

The Brow Studio specialises in brow services but also offers a wide range of reputable eyelash extensions, from natural to full glam. 

Their lash extensions come in four tiers: Classic, Hybrid, Volume, and Hollywood, with increasing intensity, thickness, and quantity.

The Hybrid lash extension is the most popular choice because it combines Classic and Volume lash strands, offering a perfect balance of fullness and texture. This makes it ideal for those seeking thicker, longer lashes that still look natural.

The most intriguing option is their temporary 24-hour eyelash extensions, perfect for events or parties. For those who struggle with applying false lashes, this is a game-changer—no sticky glue or misaligned lashes to worry about!

The Brow Studio is an excellent choice for eyelash extensions in Singapore. A 50% deposit is required to secure an appointment, and arriving more than 5 minutes late risks forfeiting the deposit. A longer grace period would be ideal, but that’s their policy. 


  • Wide range of lash options 
  • Offers temporary “24-hour” lash extensions


  • 50% deposit is required per booking 
  • Short grace period

Allure Lash and Aesthetics offers the coveted Russian Volume milk and silk lash extensions, measuring 0.05 in width, known for their thin and natural look. 

I’m thrilled they provide this service in Johannesburg because then I wouldn’t have to go too far to get them! 

The studio also only uses synthetic mink and silk lashes, keeping their practice cruelty-free and safe for cosmetic use. 

I’ll admit that their services are pretty pricey, though, especially since new clients are charged higher than returning clients (about R1100 for a new set). 

They have three main lash services, namely Classic, Hybrid, and Volume. For a new classic set (the lowest tier), the cheapest you can get here is R900, with about 60 strands per eye. Appointments can last two hours, so be prepared for a long session on the chair! 


  • Uses Russian Volume lashes (0.05-mm thin)
  • Only uses synthetic mink or silk lashes


  • Limited lash service range 
  • Pricey

Meticulous technique

“Sharon has been phenomenally brilliant over the past 2 years. She is very passionate and meticulous with lashes and ALWAYS does a job well done! So grateful and appreciative for your sense of pride and commitment towards your clients.”

Clean and safe lash studio

Getting lash extensions isn’t cheap, but at Cool Look Beauty, it’s a luxury you can afford. They offer some of the most competitive prices for eyelash extensions in Johannesburg, and I’m all for it!

You get what you pay for here, though. While their classic set only costs R495, the strands are minimal. 

They have other lash options, though, namely Hot, Glam, and Rainbow. They cost more because they use a lot more lash strands. 

I noticed that the strands became pretty heavy on the eyes. I got the look I wanted, but they started falling out after less than a week, perhaps due to the weight. 

They were pretty easy to maintain, though. I think the lash service I booked wasn’t compatible with my natural lash line, but at least my eyes looked so much better for a while! 


  • Wide range of lash service options
  • Affordable eyelash extension service


  • Inconsistent quality of work 
  • Heavier lash strands

Involved owner and workers

“If you are looking for professionalism and a 10/10 beauty service delivery, you have found the right place. The ladies at Coollookbeauty in Rosebank are so friendly and welcoming, they’re delicate to the sensitivity of installing lashes and cleanliness was a plus. I had never tried eyelash extensions and I must say that I was very impressed with the outcome. I was showered with compliments just hours after the appointment, I would highly recommend for people who truly love themselves.”

Lindsay Bobbé, Google Review

Natural-looking lash extensions

“I got my eyebrows microbladed and eyelash extensions which I loved. It looked so natural. I would highly recommend a cool look beauty. The technicians put their heart into their work and it shows. You definitely won’t regret paying cool look beauty a visit. Book your appointment today.”

If you’re looking for a beauty studio that specialises only in eyelash extensions, then Fabulash might be up your alley. 

The studio is run by lash technicians with over 12 years of experience, and sessions include a comprehensive assessment of your eye shape, lash line, and lash strands in order for them to tailor fit the service to your needs. 

Since this is a specialist lash studio, prices are a lot higher than what you would usually pay for lash extensions at a regular beauty salon. 

A session with their youngest specialist (who has at least 4 years of experience) costs R1,090, and that’s their cheapest option already.

They only offer two types of lash tiers: Classic and Volume. Ultimately, the number of strands and tier type they’ll do on you will depend on the advice of the specialist who completes the assessment with you. 

This makes appointments run for longer than two hours, but at least you’ll get your money’s worth! 


  • Appointments include assessments and consultation
  • Technicians and stylists have at least 4 years of experience


  • Offers only two types of lash extensions
  • Pricey

Very gentle with their clients

“Anita is amazing at lashes and tailoring them to exactly what you want. She has a very gentle hand which I especially need because my eyes are so sensitive. They also provide eye drops at the end of the visit which I’ve never experienced before. The lashes are pricey but worth it every time.”

Rachel Glass, Google Review

Fantastic service

“Romy is by far the best in the industry! Not only do my lashes last, but it looks amazing each and every time! Saving on mascara and make-up, as I literally just need an appointment at Fabulash to up my confidence and make me look and feel FABULOUS!!”

If you manage to get an appointment with Flutter’s eyelash extension specialists, then I applaud you. The beauty studio is usually fully booked with clients, and that says a lot about their eyelash extensions in my opinion. 

They offer eyelash extensions based on your eye shape and natural strand thickness and the technician of your choice will tailor fit the service based on what will look good on you. 

That means, no heavy feelings and more natural-looking lashes!

Flutter trains its technicians in its own beauty institute to ensure that all services are carried out with consistent quality. The attention to detail is a plus! 

Aside from the booking issues, you’ll also need to secure a deposit to secure a slot. You might have to wait at least two weeks before it’s your turn, but as long as you paid the deposit, no one’s going to steal your spot! 


  • Consistent lash quality and longevity 
  • Technicians are trained in the Flutter Institute


  • Requires a deposit to secure booking
  • Usually fully booked
