In the colorful, light-filled rooms of Gracy Elements Spa, San Diego Lashes’ specialized aestheticians have perfected one craft: creating long, full lashes with synthetic eyelash extensions. Lashes come in a variety of lengths, thicknesses, materials, and shapes, including the natural J curl, dramatic C curl, and intimidating Z curl for predatory butterfly kisses. During the 1.5- to 2-hour application, the lash artist uses a special adhesive to forge a molecular bond between each falsie and the natural lash, creating a durable hold that helps extensions stay in place for the entirety of the lash's life cycle.
