Though eyelashes are quite small, learning to apply them can be quite a big undertaking. Each aesthetician at SOHO Lashes has endured numerous hours of training through Xtreme Lashes, learning how to darken and lengthen eye fringe in a manner that is comfortable, natural looking, and safe for the eyelashes. Available in various lengths and colors, the synthetic strands are applied one by one using a lightweight, waterproof adhesive that doesn't touch the skin. And since the false lashes are bonded to the real ones, they fall out in accordance with the natural growth cycle. Depending on the desired fullness, application can take anywhere from one to two and a half hours to complete; though afterward, clients can look forward to saving time each morning since they won't need to apply mascara or perk up limp lashes with a daily pep talk.
In addition to applying lash extensions, the aestheticians enhance features with more traditional cosmetics and remove unwanted hairs with waxing services. Groups of gals can come in for bridal makeovers or to get ready for other big events, such as school dances where everyone just stands around awkwardly.
