Desert dwellers prize the camel for having the endurance to conquer the sands and the eyelashes to conquer their hearts. Stock your beauty reserves with today's Groupon: for $89, you get a mini set of eyelash extensions at Lashem-n-Leavem in Fernandina Beach (a $199 value).
At the helm of Lashem-N-Leavem, registered nurse Jeannie Higginbotham enhances peepers with semi-permanent Xtreme Lashes applied to lash lines. Wielding a magnifying glass and donning a small headlight, the eye expert carefully uses formaldehyde-free, medical-grade adhesive to individually affix 30–39 polyester fibers along the contours of the lash line. Clients can choose from a range of lash colors, curl types, and thicknesses—from 6mm to 17mm—based on their beauty preferences and the health of their natural lashes. Although regular refills can ensure lash extensions flutter indefinitely, Xtreme Lashes shed in accordance with the growth cycle of natural lashes, leaving clients with a more powerful wish-granting tool than a genie blowing out birthday candles.
