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 $49, you get 45 eyelash extensions per eye (a $160 value) at MyLash Canada, located in the Rejuvenation Day Spa in Mississauga.
MyLash Canada transforms unkempt gazes into sleek stares with deftly executed eyelash extensions. During the 1.5- to 2.5-hour procedure, skilled staffers painlessly add 45 single-strand lashes per eye with Health Canada–approved adhesive that never touches the skin, nixing the need to apply mascara or brush lashes against oiled bicycled chains for two to four weeks. Each lash affixes to and elongates natural lashes, creating a younger, more awake appearance and a more natural effect than holding up two garden rakes and occasionally making “blinking” movements.
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.
