Lashes on fleek. Those are the words that came out of my mouth following my lash extension service at Amazing Lash Studio – Elk Grove. The team over there hosted a blogger night a few weeks ago so that we could learn about the lash extension services they offer, as well as the chance to experience the magic ourselves!
It was great to finally meet Kari, Libier, and Christian in person and see Vanessa and Susan there, too. We started off with a champagne toast, and then director Danielle and her team briefed us on what the process includes, but not before I went in on this divine platter below.
Um, this cheese plate was life-changing. Sorry I’m not sorry for indulging!
Before going back to our suites, we all filled out a questionnaire that asked us about our skin and current health. I love that the team includes tips to make sure that your experience is top notch, including silencing your cell phone! That one was my fav.
After being briefed about the lash extension process and selecting my lash style (there are four), I laid down, cozied up with a plush blanket and closed my eyes. It’s not this bright the whole time! The lights go down once you’re settled and the stylist has the magnifying lamp to be able to see your lashes without disturbing your experience. My stylist informed me of each prep step so that I knew what to expect and then the magic begun. The application process is painless and gentle, so gentle that one might fall asleep. No joke, I woke myself up with my deep breathing. Oops! Depending on your lash style, the first set can take 1-2 hours.
And ta-da! The left shows my natural lashes without mascara, and the right shows the “gorgeous” level of lashes! Seriously, lashes on fleek. If you’ve been thinking about getting lash extensions, here are a couple of things to consider before your first visit:
- Exercise beforehand: No, it’s not going to be physically exerting laying down getting pretty, but because you aren’t encouraged to sweat for the 24 hours following your service, you want to make sure you get that last workout in before you’re on lash patrol!
- If you rub your eyes a lot during the day, this isn’t the service for you. There isn’t a nicer way to say that except to just say it! Don’t waste your money.
- Check your eye makeup to ensure your liner and mascara is oil free. They have their brand of products available for purchase, and I’ve found that you don’t even need mascara. I haven’t worn any since I got my lashes.
