Amid soothing earth tones and gleaming hardwood floors, Blisstik Studio augments locks and lashes in personalized, elegant adornment sessions. Monotone tresses can choose from a variety of colorful feathers before a master accessorizer professionally affixes the extension to clients' manes, giving coifs an eye-catching splash of color and ensuring frequent visits by shoulder-parrots. Alternately, owner and certified eyelash-extension expert Megan Ziegler harnesses the allure of Lavish Lashes extensions, which shed off naturally along with clients' own eyelid feelers instead of desperately clinging on until they're peeled off. A specialized adhesive unites each synthetic extension to individual lashes for up to six weeks of full and feathery blinks, winks, and Olympic-butterfly-kiss competitions.
