Every morning for the past week I have been waking up looking better than I have in a long time. My secret? Nope, I’m not getting more sleep, unfortunately. I’ve also taken time off my morning beauty routine. Any guesses?
Two words. Lash extensions. Individual lashes adhered to your own.
I had friends who had this done and they always looked so pretty. Even at 8am on a Saturday morning at the gym. I finally decided it was my time to try it out. But I knew I didn’t want to go just anywhere since it involved such a delicate body part- my eyes! I was referred to Jessica at the James Alan Salon & Spa in Shoreline. I am so happy with my decision to not only get the lash extensions but also that I went with someone reputable…because she did an amazing job.
The challenge is that the process is time consuming. This can be hard for busy moms. However, imagine carving out basically 2 hours of silence just for yourself. How often do moms get that?! Tip, bring ear buds so you can listen to music or a pod cast. Or you can nap. It’s heaven.
They need to be “filled” about every three weeks. Fills take about an hour. I am convinced it’s worth it and am looking forward to an hour of silence once a month.
Plus, it saves me time each morning. I wake up and I actually look awake and refreshed. No fussing with curling my lashes and applying mascara. The best part is that it appears you just have naturally gorgeous lashes. They don’t look fake, which is important so people don’t ask you if you are headed to a costume party.
Jessica applied classic lashes for me. Volume lashes are different from traditional lash extensions. A much smaller and lighter diameter of lash is used on each natural lash to create a ‘fluffier’ or more voluminous lash. The fluffiness is created by using several of the lighter lashes on one natural lash. Special care is taken to not overburden the natural lash. You will love this!
And the best part…one lucky reader will get to try this out for themselves. Enter to Win Volume Lashes for yourself!
