Hello ladies! If you reading this blog, this mean you have done either eyelashes extension or microblading/tattooed eyebrows or even both or first timer. But here in Vietnam the cost to do your eyelashes or eyebrows relatively cheaper than any other country around the world. I’ve done mine recently for the first time and it was surprisingly not painful or scary at all. Eyelashes extension gave your eyes more define and no more applying mascara every day.
In Vietnam, there’s plenty of beauty spa to choose from and price is vary between each spa (USD 8 – 17), quality is almost similar and depending on what types of results you want. From natural to full volume look and for the first timer like me, natural look is advisable because full volume would be heavy for some people and it will get uncomfortable to wear. Usually eyelashes extension last for 6 weeks and it is naturally that the extension may fall off on it own or you may need to go back to beauty spa to have it remove.
If you planning to travel to Vietnam or neighbouring countries after this pandemic ended, and it is not a bad idea to get that beautiful curly eyelashes extension done. I would highly advise you to search for good reviews beauty spa nearby your hotel and book that appointment a week before and usually it can be done in 1.5 hours to 2 hours.
Microblading or tattooed eyebrows is not the using the same technique and the final effects also different. Tattooed eyebrows is a cheaper version of microblading and usually can be done within an hour. It is painless as numbing cream will be applied after reshaping the eyebrows and in Vietnam it cost between USD 30 – 60. At the first day, eyebrows will look thick and super dark or dark brown but the colour will eventually fades within two weeks or so. Tattooed eyebrows can last from 12 months up to 3 years and microblading last for 12 – 18 months. Both tattooed/microblading has pros and cons, and it all about your choice of methods. Based on my research, any pregnant women are not allowed to do any tattoo/microblading eyebrows or even making any tattoos because it could cost infection to your unborn child.
In some part of Asia continent, beauty spa/saloon are relatively cheap compare to other part of the world and I have no idea why. I never had the thought of having my eyelashes or eyebrows done here in Vietnam and I wished I had it done sooner as I will leaving Vietnam in a month period.
What other things that cheap in Vietnam? Well, local hairdresser is cheap but sometimes they charge double price for foreigners but if you bring Vietnamese friend they might be able to help you with the price. Beauty spa as I mentioned is cheap as well and you can get that soothing body massage done after you arrived and before you flying back home. Enjoying local food also cheap but please choose wisely on which restaurant you wish to eat because some restaurant or food stall may not clean as you thought they would be which can cause you food poisoning. If you like to drink beer, it is cheap here in Vietnam and you can enjoy local Vietnamese beer. Also if you seafood lover, seafood is slightly cheap than usual.
