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 $29, you get a full set of mink or silk eyelash extensions at MieleDolce (a $99 value).
The experienced technicians at MieleDolce embellish lackluster lids by adorning blinkers with mink or silk lash extensions. Customers select ocular tresses from a variety of lengths and curvatures suitable for special occasions, everyday wear, or blinking out Morse code messages during Senate hearings. Next, experts spend up to two hours painstakingly affixing a semipermanent extension to each natural lash. The sultry add-ons remain in place until the natural lashes fall out—a process that takes up to 90 days. If patrons refurbish their fallen lashes every two to three weeks, as recommended, their extension sets can last up to one year.
In cosmetology school, MieleDolce founder Luis Iturralde let his fellow students wax him for a class demonstration. His allergic reaction to the chemical wax made it a demonstration of more than proper waxing technique; his brief modeling gig also showed the importance of beauty treatments that avoid irritating skin. Iturralde carried this lesson to his spa, MieleDolce, where the staff sidestep chemical waxes in favor of threading or electrolysis.
The center’s specialty, however, consists of extending hair: its semipermanent silk and mink lash extensions come in a variety of lengths and curvatures, and technicians ensure a natural look by attaching them hair by hair. Additional services range from slimming body wraps infused with aloe vera and herbs to micro skin needling, an anti-aging treatment that can combat wrinkles, scarring, and signs of playing rugby in a crawlspace.
