Lash Extensions for Days

Ever since I was a little girl I was told that I had the most amazing lashes and big beautiful eyes. Because of this I never paid too much attention to the world of lash extensions. I heard the horror stories of lash extensions that they ruin your real lashes and they are painful and are not worth the money at all for how long they last. A few days ago I got the incredible opportunity from Red and White Spa in Midtown to try out one of their services and of course, I decided to try their lash extensions.

From the moment I walked in, I was greeted with an incredible staff that met to my every need. I had been shooting outfit pictures all day so I was in need of some rest and relaxation after 5+ hours on my feet. While I waited for my lash artist I removed the makeup from my eyes and sipped on delicious cucumber water. After a few short minutes, my lash artist was ready for me.

My appointment took a little over an hour to apply 90 lashes to each eye which was just enough time for me to relax and regroup. After my lashes were complete I opened my eyes to find the longest and most perfect demi lashes. Needless to say, I am in love with my lashes.

3 Tips to Extend Your Lash Life

3 tips to help keep my Lash Extensions intact that have worked for me include…

  1. Brushing them pretty regularly. Especially when I get out of the shower, and before and after I sleep. This keeps them looking the best they can and to keep them in place.
  2. Sleeping on my back has helped immensely. This helps me to avoid any contact with my mattress or pillows that causes any unnecessary friction with my lashes. I tend to put one pillow at my head and two on either side to avoid rolling onto my back mid-sleep.
  3. Washing my face with micellar water and a cotton pad has also helped immensely. This has been a lifesaver and helps me avoid any harsh chemicals that would peel the glue off my lashes, and the cotton pad helps me remove any makeup and avoid harsh rubbing my eyes.

I would 100% recommend these lash extensions to anyone. Especially at the Red and White Spa in midtown. They have lash extensions, massages, facials, and mani-pedis so they’re your one-stop shop for all things self-care.
