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 $89, you get a full set of eyelash extensions and up to $18 toward a future session at Princess Lashes Boutique & Spa (up to a $317 value). This Groupon is valid at both locations.
Owner Ann Marie and her team at Princess Lashes Boutique & Spa bolster lids’ natural fringe with expertly applied lash extensions. The 90- to 120-minute process begins with a thorough consultation and photo op in the lash room, where clients spill their desired results and any unresolved wishes from stray lashes to an experienced technician. Tranquil music fills the air while fastidious digits adhere extensions to natural lashes with an adhesive, resulting in fuller, more dramatic eye fringe. Another quick photo shoot allows for side-by-side comparisons of lash transformations. Experts advise not to get extensions wet for 24 hours and to avoid using oil-based facial cleaners and makeup. Clients also receive up to $18 to use toward touch-ups (recommended after two to three weeks) or waxing services for the lip, chin, or eyebrows.
Princess Lashes Boutique & Spa
One morning as Ann Marie was curling her lashes before school, the phone rang. Instead of putting down her eyelash curler, she held it in place as she walked toward the phone, but then tripped over a book and pulled most of her lashes out. Shaken and stirred to action by the incident, she began researching remedies and discovered permanent eyelash extensions. The event inspired her to open Princess Lashes, a beauty boutique where Ann Marie not only augments clients’ lash lines but also certifies other aestheticians in the art of extensions, an art that can be applied during tax season and when trying to make one’s child eligible for the NBA.
In addition to lash treatments, clients can come in to extend their spines with mechanical-traction stretching. Chiropractic therapy further supports structural readjustments, and acupuncture sessions stir blockages in energetic meridians.
