This weekend I was treated to lash extensions by Tennessee transplant Brittney Herron at Serente Spa in Uptown Park. I admit I was a little hesitant (that they would look fake) but I am so happy with the results. They look so natural! I wake up doe-eyed, no mascara required. As Brittney says, "It's a high maintenance treatment that makes you more low maintenance."
Brittney is a pro and applied my 50-60 synthetic mink lashes (per eye!) in about 30 minutes. The extensions are glued individually to each lash with a special glue developed by an ophthamologist. Your bottom lashes are gently taped down during the process. This was slightly uncomfortable so I'll take out my contacts when I go back for a refill. It's recommended to come in every 2-3 weeks depending on how fast your lashes grow.
An alternative to extensions are growth serums like Revitalish, also available at Serente Spa. Apply it daily for longer and stronger lashes. You can also use it in conjunction with extensions!
