Eyelash Extensions!  They are the accessory for so many women.  No fuss, no smudge, waterproof, natural or dramatic, affordable and safe.  Eyelash Extensions have become so popular; women are opting to get eyelash extensions rather than manicures!

As they have become more popular and recognized by the mainstream, licensed estheticians have been adding this skill to their resumes.  They are a fantastic alternative and have gained tremendous popularity because of their natural look, ease of application, and yes, affordability.  With semi-permanent eyelash extensions, eyelashes are made thicker and longer through professional application of a synthetic eyelash that is curved to replicate a natural lash.  Extensions are applied one lash at a time with care and precision using special bonding agents for a completely natural look! The result is thicker, longer eyelashes that are safe in the shower, while swimming, sleeping or exercising.

Your extensions can last up to 5 weeks depending on the life cycle of your own natural lash, your eyelash characteristics, lifestyle and care of your extensions.  Your initial appointment could be 60 to 90 minutes, for a Demi-set or Full-set, respectively.  As your natural lash grows, your extension grows with it!  Refining Applications are recommended every 2 to 4 weeks to keep your set fresh.  Timeframes can vary person to person depending on your custom wants and needs.

With the Holiday Season upon us, schedule your appointment now to ensure your lashes are fresh for all your holiday parties.  You may love them and continue them into the New Year with regular fill appointments or you may decide this is a great holiday and special occasion treat.  Whether you want lashes for your wedding day, the upcoming holiday party season or an every-day look to restore lashes of your youth, Lasting Looks has the professional, perfected technique, applied by a licensed, certified and experienced Eyelash Extension Specialist. Safe and affordable, trust your eyes to Lasting Looks!!
