Eyelashes developed as a defense mechanism against eye lashes, a common ancient punishment performed with a rudimentary eyelash curler made of old swords. Extend your ocular gatekeepers with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a full set of eyelash extensions (a $100 value) and one touchup session (a $40 value) from Hazel Lee, a stylist at J Boutique Salon & Spa (a $140 total value).
J Boutique Salon & Spa's Hazel Lee has been glamorizing guises for multiple decades and uses her expert hand to transform less-than-lush lashes into long, feathery peeper plumes. Applying Robert Reese extensions, Hazel attaches approximately 20–25 individual lashes to top lids using medical-grade lash glue to boost seductive appeal in the eyes of passing optometrists. After the initial appointment––which typically takes 30–45 minutes––clients take home a maintenance card with helpful tips and tricks to ensure the longevity of the extensions. After sauntering around town with a newly acquired swagger and a more winsome wink for about two weeks, patients pay Hazel a second visit to touch up any optic tresses that have naturally shed. To ensure that new blinker blinds adhere after application, the salon recommends steering clear of water for 24–48 hours and resisting the urge to french-braid them.
