Lash extensions


Featuring a Bird of Advice from lash artist Khadija

U N I Q U E // I absolutely love when a client comes in with pictures of what they would like for their lashes to look like after their full set or refill. It gives me a guideline and ideas on how to achieve the clients expectations. As clients have expectations I as a lash artist and esthetician also have expectations and guidelines on knowing what I can and cannot do.

Part of my lash artistry is to explain to each and every client of mine that not two full sets are done the same. Simply because not all eyes are the same! Not everyone has the same amount of natural lashes, which can result in two different looks depending on the thickness of someone’s lashes. Some eyes are more deep set than others needing a different style than someone whose eyes are not as deep set. Every pair of eyes and lashes are different and unique in their own way.

I take pride in having the ability to know what may look best on one client verses another. Its up to me and my handy dandy lash tools to enhance each and everyone who walks into my studio. Defining and enhancing everyones beauty in a special, customizable and unique way is honestly my favorite part about being a Lash Artist!

Foaming lash cleanser and lash cleansing brush

Foaming lash cleanser and lash cleansing brush

Well you’ve made the decision to get lash extensions! You’ve also decided you love them and can’t live without them! Now what can you do to help them last as long as possible? This is where regular lash cleansing routine can be helpful. Proper lash maintenance is pretty darn important. Not only does it keep your lashes feeling and looking fresh but it removes oils around your lash line. Those oils that you naturally produce can break down the adhesive bond created between your natural lash and the lash extension thus causing premature fall out. Insert extremely sad face here :( To cleanse your lashes use an oil-free foaming cleanser and a soft and gentle cleansing brush. Using cotton to cleanse your lashes may pull at the base of your lashes and cause your lash extensions to fall out. The soft bristles of a lash cleansing brush won’t get caught and pull out those beauties. We carry both products for you at the salon along with a variety of other fantastic products! Next time you are in, ask your lash artist more! We are always so excited to chat all things lashes, lashes, lashes!!!

It’s been a treat watching trends in the art of lash extensions. Just few years back it was all about classic lashing. We are seeing more clients requesting the mega fluffy and soft volume lash extensions instead of classic lashes. With an application of 2-6 softer, thinner volume lash extension applied in a fan to one natural lash, we are able to attain looks from natural to bold. To be applied right, volume lashing take a bit more time and certainly more experience from the lash artist!. Each beautiful volume lash fan is carefully hand crafted by our talented and specially trained lash artists. Because we don’t use pre-made fans, we are able to design a look that is beautifully suited to each client based on the look you are trying to achieve and your natural lashes. We love the chance to enhance your natural beauty and send you Birdie Babes off with the magical feeling that only a nice fresh set of lashes can create! We are excited to now offer more availability for lash extensions! Give us a call at the salon or head over to our online booking to schedule your appointment now!!!
