This post is actually exciting for me since I was very ANTI-Eyelash Extension! I am the girl who likes to rub her eyes when it comes to removing makeup! Honestly I thought it was GROSS to have eyelash extensions and that only dumb girls would dare get them. WAS I WRONG. Goes to show, don’t knock it till you try it!
Its been 3 or 4 days now since I’ve had them. Last night for work was the first time I actually applied eye make up. We will visit that event in a second, but WHAT A LUXURY to wake up and feel pretty! HOLY COW.
Lets dive into where I got them. CHERRY LASH LOUNGE. I’ve seen just about everywhere offer this service of eyelash extensions, even in my local nail salon. DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE JUST POPPING INTO ANYWHERE! Cherry Lash Lounge is so on its A game, its not even funny. I had no idea there was such a science and so much was taken into consideration when getting this service done! I went to the Henderson location which is located at 10740 S Eastern Ave #100. Ashiya was my wonder artist and gave me EXACTLY what I wanted. Since I was so hesitant and nervous, I only wanted to get my feet wet with this service. I wanted natural but still something to look like I actually had falsies on. She customized my look with two types of hair and two types of curl. There were 3 types of curl available, I got the first two. The super super curl might have been too dramatic for me, but seeing them on women who had received them, THEY LOOK SO GLAM! Since i wanted to take these baby steps, she applied classic and a feather hair to my lashes. She also studied my natural lash to make sure she put the perfect diameter extension to ensure my natural lash were not damaged. A choice of diameter in lashes?? YES GIRL. I feel like I would see some girls who’s lashes were just falling off and losing extensions like crazy.. Possibly because the artist just stuck thick lashes on their natural lash and it couldn’t hold.
A few concerns with extensions:
I find that I cannot use coconut oil as I usually do to remove makeup!
I use baby shampoo to remove my makeup which doesn’t remove my water resistant eyeliner.
I have to sleep “pretty” LOL not the usual way I do where I smash my head in a pillow.
Those are my main concerns, but other than that, I got these to dismiss the use of makeup! I wanted to wear some foundation and lipstick and have my eyes be free of makeup. No falsies for me, although you are able to wear them, its highly suggested that you don’t!
I am highly impressed with Cherry Lash Lounge! Their training program is thorough and leaves their artist knowledgeable and able to really give a custom job for each client!
SO, bottom line, I am a BELIEVER!!! I love my extensions! I miss my gel Inglot eyeliner and House of Lashes Iconic strip lash, but I can do without for a bit!!
BIG THANK YOU and CONGRATULATIONS to Reyna, Owner of Cherry Lash Lounge. She deserves all the success in the world. The business she runs is fantastic, clean and her staff is friendly. The lounge is comfy, so comfy I fell asleep while getting my extensions!
Stay tuned for my update!
