Eyelashes developed as a defense mechanism against eye lashes, a common ancient punishment performed with a rudimentary eyelash curler made of old swords.

MyLash Canada transforms unkempt gazes into sleek stares with expertly executed eyelash extensions. During the 1.5- to 2.5-hour procedure, skilled staff painlessly adds 45 lashes per eye, nixing the need to apply mascara or brush lashes against oiled bicycled chains for two to four weeks. An eyebrow shaping unveils stunning facial hedgerows, enhancing the effect a single raised eyebrow has when solving mysteries or questioning the motives of wacky next-door neighbours.
Aesthetician Maryam Ghany had been searching for ways to enhance her eyelashes when she discovered extensions in 2008. Thrilled by the prospect of beating Bambi's batting average, she earned an advanced certification as an eyelash-extension technician the same year, and opened MyLash Canada 12 months later. Ghany has been an aesthetician since 1999, experience that gives her special insight into skincare and evinces her love of working with people—she describes her clients as "royalty."
Currently, she pours her expertise into recruiting highly educated technicians for her team, and teaching seminars that train new technicians in eye health and safety as well as the artistic application of extensions. The experts use a Health Canada–approved adhesive that makes lashes stay put for two to four weeks and never touches the skin, nixing the need to apply mascara or brush lashes against oiled bicycled chains.
