Chances are – if you are reading this- you’re curious about eyelash extensions! I have been too -for so long! I have very blonde eyelashes – everytime I take off my mascara Bobby ( my husband) likes to ask me who I am. So nice 😛
A few weeks ago I got a call from Christie at Eyelash Addict asking if I would like to try them out. I’ve been so curious- but also so freaked out about them (seriously- things THAT close to your eyes??) but I really wanted to see what they are like – so here’s the goods!
I met Christie and she set me up at her chair. She let me know that she would be putting about 100 individual eyelashes on each eye! The first appt is your longest – about 2 hours.
I have the most water-y eyes ever- they are so sensitive to everything and I can tell you this did not bother them at all! It was actually really comfortable. I almost fell asleep actually. Christie says that happens alot.
One hour in – one set done! Im pretty sure you can tell which ones are the eyelash extensions! My natural lashes look so puny haha but in real life they are actually pretty long – just super blonde!
Onto the next eye! I was surprised to see the age range of ladies in the salon!
Ill be honest – I pretty much thought eyelash extensions were for girls in their early 20s and people on “The Real Housewives….” but there were ladies of all ages and backgrounds. Soccer moms, girls like me (30s) , hipster girls – even grandmas get their eyelashes done! And its not just for girls – boys are welcome too!
And there we go!!! The finished product!!! I am not even wearing Mascara – crazy!!!! I feel so pretty with my new lashes and best of all – they don’t look fake. I don’t feel a thing ( like the gross heavy feeling you get when you have fake lashes on??? non existent!) .
Christie talked to me in depth about the importance of quality in the products – this girl has done some insane research – you can really tell its her passion!
I look forward to batting my eyes just a touch more next week in Cuba- and ill be leaving my mascara at home!
If you’re interested in getting some eyelash extensions for yourself – chat with Christie. After your first appt you can expect to go for a “fill” – much like nails – every 4-6 weeks. Even if you have just some questions – Christie was so awesome. She is co-owner of Eyelash Addict in Stony Plain (780) 963 3473. xoxo Jacks
