The Sunglass Shuffle – Vaca Lashes

It’s no secret that the reason I started Flirt Custom Lash Studio is because I have a love affair going with my eyelash extensions. I’ve had my lashes on for going on 2 years and have had them with me on a few vacations. Of course I loved having my lashes and it made the everyday process of getting ready a breeze. Well  . . . then I went to an all inclusive resort with them a few weeks ago. And I’m not just saying this because I own a lash business, I say this because I mean it when I say ” Why doesn’t every woman going away to the sun and sand have eyelash extensions ?”. Up in the morning and right down to the beach without a lick of make-up. No longer was I doing the sunglass shuffle at breakfast and lunch. Come one ladies, you know what I’m talking about – sunglasses on while out in the sun and then keeping them right up until you get to the table. Removing them to order a drink and hoping no one looks directly at you as you circle around the buffet. Scooting to the bathroom before you enter the restaurant to make sure that your waterproof mascara actually is waterproof. Heading out for the evening couldn’t be any easier. By that time of the day you’ve been out on the sun all day, maybe had a few cocktails and are very likely sun brunt. The last thing you want to do is apply make-up and do yourself up. None of that with your gorgeous lashes, comb them through, a little lip gloss and bronzer if you like and you are GORGEOUS honey.

Swim, suntan, party like a rock star and generally misbehave and look fab while doing it. These babies last a few weeks so don’t be scared to stay on the resort a few more days . . . . . you deserve it !

Dear Santa . . . .

Dear Santa,

I know your super busy and a man on the move so I’ll keep it short, all I want for Christmas is Glamour. I understand this might be a tall order and if you’re unsure about glam actually is consult Mrs.Clause cause she’s FABULOUS ! I would like to sleep in an extra 20 mins, swim and tan on my upcoming vaca without having runny eye make-up, look as good getting up as I did going to bed (this one is super important for numerous reasons – again consult with Mrs.Clause ). I want to look pulled together with just a little blush and lip gloss, look alert even when I’ve had a long night and receive tons of compliments on how great I look. I know your rolling your eyes Santa ! all of this is alot easier than it appears – all I want for Christmas is eyelash extensions. Can you find someone certified to do it ? Oh and one more thing . . . can you make sure they are located in Mississauga, Brampton, Burlington and Toronto. I’m a lady on the move and I’d like to have options for my relashing. Don’t worry Santa, you just have to spring for the first set of lashes – I’ll take care of the rest. I want nothing else for Christmas and Santa you better deliver,  I know where you live !

Yours Truly,

Miss Soon To Be Gorgeous Lashes

Tis’ the Season for Hair Tinsel !

What’s hair tinsel you ask ? It’s bling braided right into you locks – wash it, curl it, blow dry and yes you can even have your hair coloured with it in. Without using any kind of adhesive, the tinsel is braided with a few strands of hair for a little shimmer that has ALOT of impact. It will work it’s way out of the hair over a few weeks without causing any damage. A party ain’t a party unless your hair is blinging !!!!!!!!

An appt for hair tinsel can be made at the Brampton, Burlington and Toronto locations – it only takes about 15 mins – no time at all to become the talk of the Christmas party scene.

Busted !

If you’ve ever thought about lash extensions and looked into it, you have come across all kinds pricing. Listen doll, I’m all for a good deal but some things are worth paying for and lash extensions are one of them. The cost of the lash extension is a sure fire way to tell if you are getting the good stuff or not. In the interest of saving a few bucks many ladies have chosen to get their lashes done at the local nail shop. Here’s the truth  . . . these are not extensions at all. Usually they are clusters of lashes or sometimes even strip lashes cut into pieces. These are applied with a type of crazy glue or sometimes even NAIL GLUE ! Yup, that’s right  . . . . the same product that’s used to glue nails tips is bring used on your skin and eyelash hair. I have been into so many nail shops claiming to do lash extensions by asking to see their certification. Of course they claim to have one but “it’s at home”, no problem “can I see the lashes you would be using on me ?” they present me with clusters everytime  . . . BUSTED !. No Xtreme Lashes certified lash stylist will ever use a cluster, it’s against our ethics to damage the hair and clusters do just that. Once I asked to see the glue they would be using and was presented with a tube of CRAZY GLUE  . . . again BUSTED. I have been into every nail shop in my local area and not one of them is doing actual “eyelash extensions”.

How can you tell if the person is certified ? An easy way is price . . . if a full set starts at $150 then you usually dealing with someone that is certified. Another resource to check if the person doing the application has taken the time to learn the process is to check the Xtreme Lashes websitewww.xtremelashes.ca.
