Eyelash Extensions Exposed

As a mom I don't have a lot of time to get ready in the morning. Most mornings I throw my hair up in a top knot, quickly slap on some concealer, powder, mascara, blush, and lip gloss. Most of the time with a toddler hanging on my leg.

Any way I can cut down my get ready time, I'm in! Perfect, beautiful, long eyelashes with no work? Sign me up! Whether you are wanting to fill in what little eyelashes you have or enhance what you already have, this is for you!

What is exactly are eyelash extensions? Eyelash extensions are essentially fake eyelashes glued to each of your own eyelashes. Enhancing what you already have. You want to make sure you choose someone who is trained and have experience. You don't want an ameteur working around your eyes. This is why I went with Amanda from Harper Blvd. Spa. and I couldn't be happier with my decision!

My get ready time has been cut in half. I no longer have to put on eye liner and mascara. I wake up and could totally just walk on the door with no make up if I needed to and feel great. It was totally a confidence booster after getting my eyelash extensions. I felt so glamorous!

So what do you need to know before getting eyelash extensions?
  • find someone reputable (licensed)
  • go by results, not price
  • do your research, ask around
  • know what you want and make sure you voice it at your appointment
  • you can get as many or little extensions as you want (natural vs. glamorous)
Before vs. After

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take?
A full set of lashes takes about 2 hours. A fill takes 30-45 minutes depending on how long it's been.

Does it hurt?
Not one bit.

How often should I get them filled?
They recommend between 2-3 weeks. After your initial full set you'll just have to see what works best for you! I'm right at 1 week post appointment and mine are still looking great. I plan to go in next week for a fill and then I'll decide if I need every 2 or 3 weeks.

Can I get them on the bottom lashes too?
You sure can, but most client don't.

How much does it cost?
With Amanda her cost is $225, which I've found it the norm around DFW. The fills range from $30-70 depending on how long it's been since your last fill.

Can you do this while pregnant or nursing?
Yep! All work is done externally and nothing enters your blood stream. You just may need to take a break every now and then if you are pregnant. Being on your back that long can be uncomfortable.

How long do they last?
Since you get them filled every 2-3 weeks they last as long as you want! Don't want them anymore? Just don't get them filled. They'll fall out slowly. Do not pull them out as you risk the chance of pulling out your natural eyelash.

What is the upkeep?
For 48 hours after getting a full set or fill, you need to keep them dry. No water. After 48 hours you are free to wash your face like before, just be gentle around your eyes. Also use an eyelash or eyebrow brush to brush them and keep them "untangled".

How do I make an appointment?
Head over to Amanda's website Harper Blvd. Spa to schedule your appointment.
