Eyelash extensions are one of the fastest growing beauty trends these days, and an extra layer of lash is no longer the exclusive province of celebrities and gala attendees. All over the United States, women of all ages are looking to the power of extensions to create a sexier look.
At Level77 Hair Studio in New York City, NY the technicians apply the same care to eyelash procedures that they do to hair coloring and other treatments. This beauty salon is known for quality cuts, color, and styling that stays true to current trends, while flattering the individual sporting the look. As a full-service salon, Level 77 also has technicians on hand to attend to brow and lash needs, including threading and extensions.
For those trying extensions for the first time, there are a few things to keep in mind. You will first need to choose from among three types of lash extensions: synthetic, silk and mink. If cost is no object, mink is a most natural-looking option, and creates a flirty, feathery effect. Synthetic lashes are the most economical option, and applied expertly, can also create a stunning effect. Sizes range from more subtle 6-millimeter thickener lashes to dramatic, 17-millimeter “notice me” lashes.
Once you have picked out your lashes, the technician will apply them one at a time using a semi-permanent glue specifically designed for safety close to the eyes. Your eyes will remain closed the entire time, and the application procedure usually takes around two hours. After your gorgeous new lashes are in place, they can last up to two months; take care to avoid tugging on your lashes and apply mascara using a light hand only at the tips (or not at all). If you decide to keep your new lashes permanently, you can schedule a lash refill appointment after three to four weeks, and continue refreshing your set over time to maintain the set.
Eyelash extensions are a great way to draw attention to the natural beauty of your eyes. Call Level 77 Hair Studio at (212) 734-7778 to schedule your lash appointment today!
