Did you know that there is something called a Lash Lift? Welp, I didn’t. It is a more natural, longer lasting alternative to Lash Extensions.
This weekend, our girl Kristina from The Strand Salon in River Edge, hooked me up with this low maintenance alternative to Lash Extensions and I am a HUGE fan.
I am at the phase in my life where I am always looking for a shortcut to give myself the Gift of Time. I wear quick, easy or no make up at all, even when I truly should be wearing a little more. I am always looking for a quicker way to get out the door. In short, I look like a hot mess quite often. That being said, I don’t want to look like a hot, rushed mess just because it is convenient. I envy those women that walk out of their house without makeup on. I’d love to feel that fresh faced and comfortable in my own skin. I can’t help but think “Wouldn’t it be nice to have this one part of my life be somewhat effortless”? AND THEN Kristina told me about this process called a Lash Lift that is a natural alternative to lash extensions that lasts anywhere from 6-12 weeks! Um, sign me up. Without skipping a beat, I made an appointment for the next day, obvi.
I had a great experience. Kristina (as always) was fully transparent with the process. I asked her a bunch of questions in the beginning. I told her about any skin irritations and allergies that I have and we discussed what she would be doing. I had even watched a YouTube video about it before I went. Basically, it is a perm for your eyelashes. Here is what happened. I had to keep my eyes closed for about an hour. I listened to a podcast while she completed the process. She used a solution that had Keratin and other natural ingredients in it. It took a little getting used to, and only one part smelled a little funny, but I have to say it was totally painless and easy. Any teensy bit of discomfort was easily overshadowed by the ridiculously comfortable table I was on and the calming music were playing. It was a great experience, she is the absolute best! AND Kristina is graciously offering our followers/readers $25 off of your service when you mention us. Check out the before and afters!
