Are those lashes or are you happy to see me?
There she was, Marie LashHands, with two tweezers and a prosthetic lash in hand. I had always wondered what went down in these lash bars. How many people a day were getting their lashes extended? Apparently enough.
You can find DekaLash all across the United States. The amount of studios they own will soon surpass the amount of states we have. Lashes have become America’s new Big Mac for the eyes. I for one fell into the hype and now I’ve transformed into a butterfly princess. Will I ever go back to using mascara?
One of their studios opened up this past month in West Caldwell, NJ. Through Instagram I found out they were looking for training models. Quickly did I dial the number and made my very first appointment. I was shocked to learn that it would be a two hour process. What were they going to do to me? Eye Surgery?
Upon my arrival I found myself in a futuristic lash bar. Where three beautiful women greet you with warm smiles and hibiscus ginger tea. Is this Heaven? Marie the Manager guided me to where I would find myself sleeping for two hours. A massage chair, two sectional pillows and a blanket awaited my naked eye lids. We had a ten minute consultation to which I replied “Do As you Please, I am here for the experience” Off I went into a cocoon as she played with my eyelashes. It was a very strategic process, one by one, she attached the synthetic lash to my real one with glue, almost like a weave if you have ever had one.
At first we chatted about her life, her career and then I quickly dozed off. She was super cool with me waking up every now and then to pick up where we left off. It was like having someone brush your hair. Two hours felt like fifteen minutes. I felt like I was just getting to know her when she said I was done and how beautiful I looked. Where was I?.
You know that mirror in Beauty and The Beast where she could see where who she most loved. That was me, looking at myself a princess of lashes. Matter of fact, the queen! Man do my lashes look on point. I had zero expectations of what they would look like. This was beyond, I transformed, and now wondering why my former self waited so long. Who needs contouring when you’ve got bomb.com lashes! So now the question is, how am I going to convince my husband I need $120 a bucks for lash weave?
