“Look How Natural”
When InHollywood Magazine sent me to the StripWax Bar at Third Street and Crescent Heights, I wasn’t sure if I was attending a titillating show or would be learning about antique wood restoration. Much to my relief, it was neither. I was going to another boutique business ”Lashfully” which was housed within the black and white decorated bikini wax store.
I had heard about Eyelash Extensions (how different could they be from the ones on my hair? -VERY) and was thrilled at the prospect of receiving my own very pair. The Queen Bee Goddess of Lashes, Courtney-Casgraux-Camplin, met me. I, of course, had many questions that any neurotic or smart girl in her right mind would ask. “How long does it last? “Can I choose what style I want ?”, and “Will my eyes get glued together?”. Courtney, who by the way applies lashes on all the Hollywood Starlets and local News Anchors, was very patient and assured me that I would not loose my vision for the sake of my vanity.
She informed me that the lashes last three to four weeks. Clients may choose to come in for “touch-ups” in between. There are many styles and lengths to pick from. And since my eyes are closed (with soothing pads below the lashes), there is no chance that my eyes will be glued together. Enough questions…let’s get to the good stuff!
My eyelash extensions were a cinch. I lay on a bed, scented candles burning, and listened to avant-garde music while my gorgeous lashes were applied. After about an hour, I looked in the mirror and much to my delight, witnessed a literal eye-opening transformation. They looked glamorous and yet so natural.
In the weeks to come, I would see the benefits of waking-up and looking camera ready. No mascara needed. What a relief. Overall, I felt more confident (and didn’t have to worry about those messy glue-on lashes).
If you have a special occasion or simply feel like you deserve to treat yourself like the Princess that you are, slip on a pair of Lashfully Lashes and wink your heart-out!
