Sharing this story and set of pictures for several reasons…..
We must not assume the reason/s a person decides to get eyelash enhancements. Besides the obvious reason of wanting to look good, some choose eyelash enhancements to correct or disguise an issue. For example, alopecia, hyper thyroid, overly curly lashes, changing the eye shape, recovering from chemo therapy…..
This lady was referred to our Studio by her stylist in Florida. She was not wearing the same brand yet was told to use the XtremeLashes Directory! EyeDeux and many other studios are thankful for a directory for traveling Lash Addicts to know they have a Certified stylist in the area to help them. I encourage fellow stylist to “get to know each other” near and far so in the event a client needs to travel, they have a second home to go to.
During consultation I noticed one eye had less lashes than the other, my initial assumption was from sleeping. (I favor my left side during nap time so I tend to lose extensions faster on the left). Well this was not the case for her. Regardless of the reason, which for her privacy I will not share, these eyelash extensions are a major benefit to her. She can continue her very active lifestyle of outdoor activities without worrying about mascara.
Another reason I am sharing these pictures are to show that not everyone can get 100+ extensions per eye! This is important for future eyelash enhancement clients to see. There are so many brands advertising their extensions by using the most full set of natural lashes they can find. (Go ahead an do a search for XtremeLashs, NovaLash, LavishLash, Ardell, JB Cosmetics, etc) How many times have you, the stylist, or you the customer heard or want “that look”. We must realize that everyone’s eyes and lashes are NOT the same. In first picture above, the young lady is not able to get the full set of extensions to look like the Kardashians using the semi-permanent extensions. She may be able to get the look using another type of enhancement but these extensions are best for her natural lashes LONG TERM!
