$125 for a One Set of Xtreme Lashes Eyelash Extensions ($250 Value)
A reclining chair promotes relaxation as a certified Xtreme Lashes stylist applies 120–240 soft, synthetic strands to eyelashes one at a time. Each semipermanent strand contains a thick base, a tapered tip, and a curl resembling that of a natural lash or a permed question mark. Lash application typically takes one to two hours. For lasting lushness, touchups may be needed every two to three weeks.
Bloom Lash Boutique
If eyes are the windows to the soul, then aesthetician Amber Gladden is a master curtain designer. As a Dermalogica skincare expert, she thrives at tending to pores, but her favorite facial feature is a lush crop of eyelashes. That's why she founded Bloom Lash Boutique, a beauty shop dedicated to lash enhancement. Here, she can tint them, curl them, or make them extra long, like the train of a dachshund's wedding gown. Her specialty is Xtreme Lashes, semipermanent extensions that give natural lashes a thick, full look. While the client kicks back in a reclining chair, Amber attaches each strand to a single lash, about 1 millimeter from the eyelid. Though this process can last up to two hours, it prevents clumping and promotes fluttering. Each eye receives 60–120 extensions, which require a touchup every two to three weeks.
