The eyelash artists at Lashed are monk-like in their focus, dedicating their work solely to the art of eyelash application and augmentation. With sets of faux mink lashes, they affix individual extensions to natural eyelashes one by one with NovaLash adhesive—a medical-grade formula. The process can take up to two hours to complete and results last up to six weeks depending on care and how good the client is at holding in all their blinks. For a less dramatic boost around the eyes, the team also offers tinting for natural lashes and eyebrows.
Led by owner Kimberly Thompson, an entrepreneur, mother, writer, and former model, the clinical staff at Shangri-la Medispa helps busy clients to look and feel their best. A physician tends to both their inner and outer needs by administering cosmetic fillers and overseeing the weight-management program. An experienced medical aesthetician fine-tunes appearances with laser and microcurrent treatments, chemical peels, and waxing. The medispa has also developed its own product line, Shangri-La Skin By Kim. The team also includes a registered nurse who can advise patients on their treatment options or answer any questions, from “how much downtime is required?” to “is the human appendix an extraterrestrial tracking device?”
The crew performs services in whimsically themed treatment rooms filled with shabby-chic tables and dressers. Clients can relax in spaces decorated with such touches as a colorful London sign and lamps that resemble the Eiffel Tower and an antique streetlamp. In the black-and-white facial room, a picture of Marilyn Monroe glamorously oversees skincare treatments.
By applying individual eyelash extensions from NovaLash, the aestheticians at Lashin Out augment both the thickness and length of their clients’ natural fringe. Patrons can opt for a natural or glamorous look, as with mug shots, and keep lashes looking full with follow-up fills up to four weeks after application.
The skilled eyelash techs at Fab Your Lashes Eyelash Studio accessorize ocular awnings with lash extensions. During the two-hour session, steady hands affix Minkys semi-permanent synthetic lashes onto existing strands using medical-grade adhesive. Lashes instantly appear longer and fuller without the hassle of donning mascara, manipulating curlers, or performing eyelid squats. With proper care, peepers can toss flirtatious winks with their new optical augmentations for up to two months. Because lashes are semi-permanent, clients may engage in normal activities such as visiting the spa, swimming, or holding staring contests with the family ostrich.
