I have completely gotten onboard with lash extensions and it was honestly something I thought I would never do. I’ve told you all before that I was fine with my 18-coat routine of mascara that I have been doing for years and finally mastered. But since having these lashes, I am not kidding you, my whole world has changed. Or at least routine of getting ready, going to bed, feeling pretty when I haven’t showered for days, and making the bags under my eyes look better. And that’s a lot of things made easier, soooo, I’m hooked! But I feel as though I’ve done a disservice to you as my blog reader. I only gave you one price point for them, and a high one at that. Since then, I have done my research and gone on wonderful recommendations. This brings me to Glamour Bar in Buford. Before you freak out about it being in Buford (I’m talking to my ITP friends who never leave ITP), trust me, it’s worth it. Brooke Cannon is the owner who is a major girlboss entrepreneur, and does an amazing job. She told me that she has clients drive from Marietta and all over to come see her for not only lashes, but other services, as they are a medspa as well. The place is adorable and homey, and you can completely relax. Glamour Bar books up like crazy and has some loyal clients that swear by it, recently gaining one more.
I told Brooke I love big lashes and want them full and long. At first, I felt like I was Tammy Faye Bakering it, but got used to them and honestly, they are exactly what I wanted. Because in pictures and from far away, they are the perfect amount of noticeable, where before with all my coats of mascara, never looked like anything in pictures or unless you got up close. I’m excited something simple that truly makes my life as a mom easier, is accessible. Lash extensions have become part of a normal maintenance like getting your hair or nails done, so it was important for me to find a place that was quality, reliable, and affordable. I have already warned Robert that this is something I need to keep up with. He might not understand the importance of lashes, but they are my thing. And right now I’m waking up in the morning a little bit prettier, and in turn happier… so I don’t think he’s complaining.
Quick facts on lash extensions in case you forgot them from my last lash post:
-you can completely customize how you want them to look. You can go with really long, short and full, or stay natural looking
-each lash is attached to one of your real lashes. Every lash has a cycle, so as they fall out, so will your extensions.
-mine lasted about a month. It’s not realistic for me to go every week or even every other week, and not necessary depending on your personal lashes. I will probably go every 3 weeks.
-they feel normal and do not bother me
-you can wear contact lenses with them, just not while you get them put on
