Long eyelashes serve multiple purposes, from shooing incoming moths to extinguishing nearby forest fires with a single fierce blink. Elongate eye fringe with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a full set of eyelash extensions at Locks and Lashes in Clermont.
Locks and Lashes’ licensed eyelash specialists elongate and thicken clients’ eye blinkers with custom, individually applied eyelash extensions. During an initial 15-minute consultation, technicians help clients customize lashes, determining an appropriate thickness and length that will flatter facial features and Bambi costumes. Then, during a two-hour transformation, eye whisperers strategically bond 75–100 extensions to existing lashes, applying plumes one by one for a full, natural look. With proper care, these extensions can last up two months—about as long as the natural eyelash growth cycle—and withstand the daily wear and tear of applying mascara and taking pies to the face.
