Open your eyes with Eyelash Extensions

Posted Jul 13 2011 12:00am
Eyelash extensions have been a well known secret in the beauty and entertainment industry, and here in New York City the best place in my opinion to try them is at JJ Eyelashes . Why try eyelash extensions in the first place? For some women, genetically their lashes are very sparse, thin or light in color. Others, including myself enjoy how your eyes open and "pop" with the application of lashes.

Eyelash extensions replace the need to apply coat after coat of mascara, or struggling to apply false eyelashes that last for one application only. No more damaging to your lashes than applying mascara, the synthetic lashes are applied individually to your natural eyelashes with an odorless bonding agent. For all your women with sensitive skin, rest assured that neither the glue nor the synthetic lash will ever come in contact with your skin.

When you first come in, you will receive a personalized consultation where the process is explained and you are shown the different lengths and type of curl, "C" or "J" that are available. This is important because it gives you the opportunity to speak with your technician about what look you are going for, and she in turn will give you valuable input on what would best frame your eye, ensuring that you leave totally satisfied. I have tried both the "cat eye" look where the lashes go from short to long at the outer corners, and also a more "lush" look where it is full from corner to corner. An added bonus is the complimentary foot and hand massage you receive while drifting off to la la land. The end result is customized and beautiful lashes that will last you from 6-8 weeks,

The convenience of waking up everyday and not having to apply mascara or false eyelashes is a wonderful thing. The maintenance itself is no more than getting your regular manicures. Just as your natural lashes shed, so will the eyelash extensions and it is therefore recommended you go about every two weeks.

Take a look at my own before and after pictures.


Some tips before you go to help you get an even better experience
  • Remove all eye makeup including mascara before you go in and afterwards, avoid oil based eye makeup removers
  • Mascara is no longer needed since the lashes will look as if you have applied it already
  • The procedure itself is very relaxing and takes about an hour so look forward to enjoying a blissful nap
  • There are two different sets, Ruby (80 pieces) and Diamond (110 pieces). I go with the Diamond set.
