After giving birth to her second child, the owner of Ooh-La-Lashes really struggled to boost her self-confidence for the first time in her life. Selfless hours spent caring for her new baby left little time for her own pampering, and she found herself looking for ways to up her daily glamour quotient without taking away from her mommy time. Then she began wearing eyelash extensions, and found how beautiful they made her feel without the daily, time-consuming ritual of makeup application. To share her secret of daily beauty without the hassle, she opened up a salon in her home office, where she thickens and lengthens her clients’ eyelashes with natural mink extensions for a look more glamorous than a Ferrari covered in caviar. Her clients can maintain their daily va-va-voom by purchasing touchup lash extensions six weeks after their initial appointment.

Regardless of which style you choose, the kneads can be complemented by add-ons such as aromatherapy and palm massages.
