Hi ladies so a precursor I want to share my story as to why I took the plunge and started getting lash extensions and whether it’s worth it or not?
I’ve been aware of this growing beauty trend however, never really imagined wanting lash extensions for myself. My sister was the first person I noticed with lash extensions and then once more at an event where the speaker had these gorgeous full lashes, which later she revealed were lash extensions.
I started researching the companies who applied lash extensions, however I was particularly concerned with the price. In south Florida some estheticians were charging close to $400 for lash extensions!! OMG, I thought! I couldn’t fathom paying that much money. My sister recommended the Amazing Lash Studio. She mentioned that they have a standard price of $79 dollars and refills were $59. She said there were a ton of locations I just needed to check if there were any in Miami? Unfortunately, the closest one to me was in Boca Raton, FL about a 35 minute drive for me since I live up north.
I decided to take the plunge, I heard the rumors about the side effects of lash extensions so I wanted to make sure all my questions were answered by the Amazing Lash Studio. I asked about the formula in the products were there any formaldehyde; had customers experienced any side effects. Then I went on yelp to check the reviews. Everything seemed to check out perfectly.
I am so happy I went to get them done! I love wearing makeup and this just elevated my look, the lashes make you look awake; your eyes instantly feel beautiful. It just completes your overall look without having to wear mascara.
So here are a couple of things:
The experience: It’s somewhat like a spa experience or getting your eyebrows waxed. You’re lying on a cushy spa bed. They put these soothing eyelid pads underneath your eyes. They use tape to keep your eyelids closed (it doesn’t feel uncomfortable or at least not for me). They separate your lashes and begin filling them in with the extensions.
How long does it take: It takes about an 1-1/2 to 2 Hours! It’s a very relaxing experience so you will fall asleep. Once the stylist is done they will remove the tape and pads and brush your lashes.
Do they provide instructions after? Yes! What I love about Amazing Lash Studio is the stylist are REAL estheticians they are also trained on how to properly take care of your eyelashes. My stylish informed me to use dial foaming soap and lightly wipe it on to my lashes. Then use a light splashing technique to clean the soap off.
How long do they last? My first set lasted 4 weeks, but they tend to last 3 weeks. I usually go every 3 weeks.
Will they fall out? Since your natural lashes automatically fall out and grow back, they will fall out with them, but nothing to where you won’t have lashes when your done, I still have my regular lashes ladies.
Where should I go to get them done? Do not go to any sketchy places, check reviews on yelp or any REAL review site. YouTube! and make sure it’s a legitimate company, your lashes are very precious and you don’t want to have a bad experience with someone doing it just because they learned on YouTube. Go to a PROFESSIONAL!
