Eyes are like taxes: if someone's working on yours, you want them to be certified. Keri Burt, the aesthetician behind Big Sexy Lashes and a certified lash trainer with more than five years of experience, focuses almost exclusively on improving ocular aesthetics. Burt and her team apply several types of extensions: synthetic fiber extensions, which hold their curl for a uniform look; silk extensions with manicured tips; and soft, curly mink extensions that create a bold, natural look—like a skinny-dipper in a beluga tank. Lashes come in varying lengths and thicknesses, allowing staffers to customize applications and flatter each client's eye shape and personal aesthetic with 30 extensions applied to each eye. The team uses fume-free medical-grade adhesives to hold extensions in place, even on windy days.
Burt's shop enables lash care beyond the salon by purveying beauty products such as Lash Bath, which removes eye makeup without damaging extensions. In case clients have other follicular concerns, the staff administers haircuts, above-the-neck waxes, and feather extensions.
