Hey Girl, Where’d You Get Those Lashes?

Leigh Alison

Recently while flipping though social media pictures, I came across a friend’s post of her gorgeous new eyelashes—eyelash extensions to be exact—applied right here in Newtown, at Urban Allure Salon & Spa. No more messy mascara, smudging or the always laborious hassle of reapplication?! Slightly jealous but even more so curious, it was clear that I needed to find out more.

As it turns out, Annette at Urban Allure Salon & Spa received her certification from Minkys (a certified Mink eyelash extentionist) and in approximately two hours, she can transform your lashes from lackluster to luscious! Now, I know what you’re thinking…”two hours?”. Well, let’s not forget that these high quality lashes are applied one at a time to ensure a quality application which lasts.

The Appointment
Quick tip:
You can save time by removing your makeup before your appointment.

As I entered the private room, I was requested to lay on a very inviting spa table equipped with warm blankets, neck pillow and dfsafcomfortable bolster for my legs. Once any makeup was removed from my face, the lower lashes were secured down (This avoids any adhesion between the top and bottom lashes and gives the technician a “cleaner” workspace near the eye.). Annette continued to explain that Minkys provided more than the typically 8-hour certification. She had to attend hands-on workshops, as well as submit her work for approval before she could become a certified Minkys’ Eyelash Extension Specialist. My eyes were closed the entire time as the technician worked from above applying my new lashes. I have to admit that I fell asleep a few times because the aromatherapy and spa music were equally relaxing!

Ladies I tell you, simply laying down in a spa room for two hours was worth it. However the results were even more spectacular.

Be sure to take advantage of this new service, performed by Annette, a Minkys’ Eyelash Extension Specialist. Think Fall outings and approaching holidays!

What’s more, for a limited time, Urban Allure is offering an introductory special of just $199 (originally $230) for these fabulous lash extensions. Refills are recommended every 3-4 weeks for $65, to keep your lashes looking full and fresh.
