The Lashe Spot
At The Lashe Spot, a team of highly skilled eyelash technicians led by educational director Claudia Martinez help their clients break free from the hassles of clumpy, high-maintenance mascara. By placing a single extension on each individual natural eyelash, they instantly create long, luscious lashes with natural-looking volume. Eyelash extensions range from dramatic cat-eyes to natural looks to fit each client’s personal style. Most looks require upkeep every two to three weeks. The Lashe Spot also offers a training program for aspiring lash technicians who can then go on to use Lashe Spot’s proprietary lash extension products and techniques and encourages interested candidates to inquire when visting. Waxing and nail care services are also available.
My middle-school dreams of getting my hair permed never panned out, but that just makes me appreciate my new permed lashes even more.
