luxury eyelash extensions, lash and brow tinting, and facial waxing
Due to some technical difficulties, I will be switching my booking software sometime in the very near future, hopefully this weekend. That means you might be getting duplicate/new confirmations of your appointments. It also means that until I get my website updated, online booking will be offline for a short period of time. Not to worry, your appointments will still be on the books and you can still book with me by calling or texting 512 577 7900. I am sorry for the inconvenience, and hope to be back up and running online as soon as possible. Thanks so much for your patience!
Hi lovelies! A couple of announcements.
It has come to my attention today that Square Appointments (the software I use to book my appointments) is experiencing some technical difficulties. Please text or call me at 512 577 7900 if you have any questions about your appointment time or you need to schedule/reschedule. (This is why computers would probably fail at taking over the world.)
Secondly, spring is upon us in the ATX and that means two things - higher humidity and lash shedding! What do these mean for you? Regarding the lash shed - humans are mammals, and mammals grow hair all over their bodies, and that hair grows in thicker in the winter time. When warmer weather arrives, we shed that thicker hair pretty quickly, which means we also lose lashes a little faster, since lashes are technically hair. (Think about how your dog or cat sheds all crazy style in the spring - not that I am comparing you to a dog... You know what I mean.) This means your refill appointments may have to come a little closer together until your personal shed cycle is over. But never fear - hair growth cycles are about six weeks long, so in about a month your lashes should be totally back to normal! I will be happy to work out a plan with you to keep your lashes looking full until your shedding cycle is complete.
Now for a little science lesson. Eyelash extension adhesive is made of cyanoacrylate, which doesn't "dry" - it cures. What this means is that cyanoacrylate is a chemical that draws another chemical to it in order to harden - and in cyanoacrylate's case, that chemical is good ol' H2O. In more humid climates (such as Austin right now) that means that the ambient moisture in the air outside is causing your freshly applied lashes, which normally take hours to cure fully, to cure much more rapidly - which isn't necessarily a good thing, because this means that the bonds that are made over hours are being "shocked" into existence too early, causing brittle bonds that can break off the lash, leaving your lash behind with no extension on it! No bueno. You may notice during your appointment that I may skip the misting phase of the appointment so that I can use the higher humidity to my advantage in curing your new lashes properly. Please let me know if you are experiencing less than optimal lash retention - you are seeing lashes come off much faster than normal or your extensions are coming off without your natural lashes attached. Please note you can lose up to 4 or so natural lashes per day, more if you suffer from alopecia, chemotherapy side effects, or hormonal imbalances that affect hair growth. I use several different adhesives to combat this issue and I am confident we can find the right one for you.
Thanks for reading this novella! I hope it was informative for you. As always, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me - I love answering your questions and concerns! One last note: I am heading to California for vacation April 17th and will be gone through the 25th, so my response time may be a bit slow. I will miss you guys and see you when I return!
I am starting to book up pretty quickly for October. Monday appointments for the entire month are already becoming pretty hard to come by. If you're in need of lashes for ACL (especially the second weekend) or any other upcoming event, please call or text 512 577 7900.
As an aside - October 22nd I will have been open for a year at my current location. I cannot believe how amazing this past year has been. It has been a lot of hard work, some of it pretty lonely (it's weird to go from working with a bunch of people in a studio to all by yourself!) and some of it boring (boo accounting) and some of it stressful (my time management skills have definitely improved!) but all of it incredibly rewarding, and I still have room for growth. I can't thank all of you - anyone who has listened to me talk about my decision to open a business, anyone who has told a friend about me, anyone who has come to me for services, anyone who has even given me well wishes - enough for your support and friendship. It's hard to get by in this world sometimes, and I am beyond lucky to have such amazing friends, clients, and loved ones to help me. I am humbled. Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
[07/09/16] Hey beautiful! Let's talk for a second about sunscreen, sweat, and your lash extensions. Summer is upon us and it is absolutely important to wear sunscreen. However, spraying sunscreen on your face isn't a very good idea when it comes to your extensions. Many sunscreens contain ingredients that can break down the adhesive and compromise the longevity of your lashes. When using sunscreen, opt for a lotion, preferably one with a physical sunscreen component. Also, it's freaking hot in Austin! Try not to rub sweat out of your eyes. Instead, try to blot gently. Your lashes will thank you!
