Happy 5th Anniversary Eye Deux

It gives me great joy to announce that The month of April marks the Fifth Year Anniversary of Eye Deux, Inc.

Eye Deux, previously named Lashes by Toya, LLC was established in April 2008. Applying eyelash enhancements (strip lashes and clusters) as additional income in the back of a JC Penny’s salon quickly turned into a business. Constant growth in clientele and service offerings created the need for more space (and privacy), which required us to move to a new location in Virginia Beach. Currently Eye Deux has a private studio located at 429 S. Witchduck Rd, Virginia Beach,VA 23462 and a sister-studio in the Oyster Point area of Newport News.

Thank you to all of the beautiful women and men who have come through our doors, you’ve contributed to EyeDeux’s success. We have shared laughter and tears, births and homegoings, great naps(those who get an eyelash enhancement service get to really enjoy these) and valuable learning ah-ha moments.

Thank you to all of the family, friends and supporters of Eye Deux who have not had the chance to come into our Studios but have referred wonderful clients to us. Referrals and word-of-mouth has been our major advertisement since day one.

Looking forward to the next 5+ years and expansion of the Eye Deux brand!


Getting through Allergy Season

Yes Ladies & Gents, it’s that time again. Spring has sprung and allergy season is blooming. Watery eyes, scratchy throats, runny noses, sneezing, nasal congestion…how are we Lash Lovers to deal with all of this?!


Keep your eyelash extensions dry-have tissue on hand. If you must use eye drops, be sure the drop go directly into the eye. Be careful not to rub or pat too much with the tissue. This will leave cotton fibers on your extensions. Gently dab the corners of your eyes to “catch” the tears.

Avoid rubbing your eyes-this is when your medicine may be a huge help. IF your lash line (the area where your natural lashes and skin meet, also where you apply eyeliner), use a clean mascara brush and gently brush that area.

Avoid touching your face! Have you seen the pollen build-up on your cars? We open the car doors and sometimes don’t notice the pollen on the handles.

I have personally stocked up on my over the counter meds, I love my purple XtremeLashes extensions and want to keep them looking as fabulous as I can during this season.

How do you, who wear faux lashes cope with the allergies?

Pregnancy and Eyelash Extensions

Congratulations! You’ve found out a little one is on the way. You may still be able to keep your eyelash extension appointments thru your pregnancy.

During the eyelash extensions appointment you will need to lay down for at least 45 minutes for a touch up (about 90 minutes for the initial set). This can become uncomfortable and/or impossible as you get further into your pregnancy. Ask your eyelash technician if they will be able to provide additional pillows, leg bolsters, blankets, etc to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible during the appointment. You may have to lay on your side like this lady…


(Client of EyeDeux, came in the week of her due date)

You will notice she has additional pillow support on her left side as she is lays towards the right.

If your lash stylist does not have extra pillows or leg bolsters for support, you may certainly bring in your own. No worries for the ladies that come to the EyeDeux Studios, we have them!
